In Ancient Israel, the apostate Hebrews adopted the pagan practice of child sacrifice to false gods. Psalm 106:35-38 informs us that the Israelites:
“mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.”
One of those pagan idols was Moloch, also known as Molech or Milcom. This heathen god was often associated with Baal and Ashtoreth. The salient point, however, is that in their wicked state the Israelites sacrificed their innocent children to these false deities. A greater evil than slaughtering innocent infants is hard to fathom. Yet, this practice is not a relic of the past; it is a fixture of our present.
Abortion is nothing if not child sacrifice. It is perhaps more systematized and sanitized by impersonal medical jargon than its ancient counterpart, but the result is the same – the mass slaughter of infants. Whereas the heathen peoples of the past sacrificed their children to false gods and idols for religious purposes, we sacrifice our children on the altar of political ideology.
Abortion is a political football in the Marxists’ perverse game for world conquest. It is a talking point to curry favor with useful idiots who can be persuaded to give up their power to the Marxist Elite. Not surprisingly, Soviet Russia was the first modern state to legalize abortion. Abortion-on-demand became endemic and took a severe toll on the Russian people. Tragically, we followed the Soviet path and legalized infanticide.
In a recent article titled “Ancient Civilizations Sacrificed Children, But We Abort Them,” Cheryl Sullenger spoke of an archaeological discovery in Peru of the bones of 137 sacrificed children. She then made this remark comparing our ghastly practice of abortion with child sacrifice in the past:
“[B]abies whose hearts were still beating were cut open so their organs could be removed – just like the children who walked through mud to their grisly deaths in Peru over five centuries ago.
“The murder of children isn’t confined to the distant past, nor to superstitious idolaters who sacrificed human beings for what they considered the benefit of their people. It is still happening at abortion clinics, done by supposedly civilized and well-educated people, who try to convince the rest of us that this grisly barbarism is done for the betterment of humanity.
“States like New York and abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood are setting civilization back hundreds of years to the days of child sacrifice, which has morphed into the practice of abortion. Today the brutal violence is shrouded in euphemisms such as “reproductive health.” Abortion has nothing to do with “reproduction” and even less to do with “health.” It is all about killing a child for the mother’s convenience. . . .
“It’s time to face the hard truth of the matter that abortion is little different from child sacrifice, no matter how hard some attempt to obfuscate that fact. Killing babies can never improve our culture or our lives. It couldn’t in Peru over 500 years ago and it can’t in America today.”
Truly, abortion is modern human sacrifice disguised in medical terminology and deceptively euphemistic language. It is just as grotesque and cruel today as when the heathens did it anciently. In the same powerful article just cited, Sullenger spoke of Holly O’Donnell’s “experiences harvesting aborted baby organs at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in San Jose, California.” In one particular case, the employees found that one of the “aborted” children was still alive. Here is the sick account:
“So, then I hear her call my name. “Hey, Holly! Come over here. I want you to see something kinda cool. It’s kinda neat!” So, I’m over here and – the moment I see it I’m just flabbergasted. This is the most gestated fetus and closest thing to a “baby” that I’ve seen.
“And she’s like, “Okay, I want to show you something.” So she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here, and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating and I don’t know what to think. . . .
“I knew why it was happening. It’s because of the electrical current was — the nodes were still firing, and I don’t know if that constitutes — it’s technically dead? Or it’s alive?
“It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, “Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.””
The article then concluded the morbid story:
“O’Donnell then described how Jessica began the harvesting process by cutting through the lower jaw and into the face with scissors, then instructed O’Donnell to finish cutting through the face so she could extract the brain.”
This level of callousness is not at all uncommon in the infant death industry. How many times do we have to read stories of Planned Parenthood operatives privately selling the body parts of dead babies before we wake up? How many monsters like Kermit Gosnell have to be exposed before we sit up and take note? How many more of our sons and daughters have to die before we grow a conscience and act to preserve their right of life?
Over 70 million of God’s sons and daughters – our sweet, innocent infants – have been snuffed out in our nation since Roe v. Wade. For context, that’s more than the 60 million who were slaughtered by Lenin and Stalin in the Soviet Union. Entire generations of Americans have been cruelly wiped out. And the Marxists in Democratic clothing in are making a massive push to expand this industry of death and make permissible the murder of children even after they are successfully born. As opposed to the fictitious atrocity propaganda we have been inundated with, this is the real Holocaust we should be concerned with.
Abortion is infanticide, plain and simple. It is our modern-day version of public ritual sacrifice. We don’t sacrifice our children to Moloch by making them “pass through the fire” (2 Kings 23:10), but we do sacrifice them in murder facilities known as abortion clinics. We don’t burn them to death, but we do rip their little skulls apart and suck out their brains, inject them with fatal chemicals, snip their spinal cord, leave them in freezers to die, or cut them apart while still alive in order to harvest their organs. How are we any different than the pagan peoples of the past? If anything, we are worse because we deny that our actions are wrong and turn a blind eye to the gruesome ways in which our children are butchered.
Will we continue to listen to feminists who screech “my body, my choice”? It is not their body – it is the body of an unborn boy or girl who will grow into a man or woman. The science on this matter is settled. Only ignorant or lying individuals pretend the science is not settled regarding when life begins. Life begins at conception. This is not connected to theology or philosophy; it is pure science and biology – science that has been determined and confirmed for decades! Women are deluded if they believe the baby inside them is not a living human being, but rather just a “clump of cells.”
No, woman, the being inside you is a little boy or girl, your future son or daughter. They have a right to live just like you do. If you do not want that child, be responsible and don’t have sex. It’s really that simple. But since you entered into the contractual arrangement of sexual intercourse – the means God gave us for creating life – you are now responsible for that child with the man you mated with. Once you create life, it is not your body and it is not your choice. We all must live with the consequences of our actions. And in this case, the “consequence” is a glorious blessing from Heaven that will bless, not burden, your life. Embrace that blessing and your calling as a mother of one of Heavenly Father’s sons or daughters.
Rather than embrace their calling as mothers, however, many selfish women make the decision to kill their offspring. They join with Moloch’s high priests to sacrifice their children on the altar of expediency, laziness, selfishness, hedonism, and ignorance. Abortion is a black mark on our society which considers itself so “civilized.”
Russell M. Nelson, a powerful religious leader whom I revere, spent his earlier career as a prominent, internationally-known doctor. He said this of abortion:
“This war called abortion is a war on the defenseless and the voiceless. It is a war on the unborn. This war is being waged globally. Ironically, civilized societies that have generally placed safeguards on human life have now passed laws that sanction this practice.
“This matters greatly to us because the Lord has repeatedly declared this divine imperative: “Thou shalt not kill.” Then He added, “Nor do anything like unto it.” Even before the fulness of the gospel was restored, enlightened individuals understood the sanctity of human life. John Calvin, a sixteenth-century reformer, wrote, “If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house than in a field, . . . it ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fœtus in the womb before it has come to light.”
“Man-made rules have now legalized that which has been forbidden by God from the dawn of time! Human reasoning has twisted and transformed absolute truth into sound-bite slogans that promote a practice that is consummately wrong.
“Concern for the health of the mother is a vital one. But circumstances in which the termination of pregnancy is necessary to save the life of the mother are very rare, particularly where modern medical care is available. Another concern applies to pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. This tragedy is compounded because an innocent woman’s freedom of choice was denied. In these circumstances, abortion is sometimes considered advisable to preserve the physical and mental health of the mother. Abortions for these reasons are also rare. . . .
“To deny life to an individual because of a possible handicap is a very serious matter. Policy consistent with that logic would dictate that those already living with such deficiencies should likewise be terminated. One more step in that tragic train of thought would lead to the conclusion that those who are either infirm or inconvenient should also be eliminated. Such irreverence for life would be totally unthinkable!
“Relatively few abortions are performed for the special circumstances to which I have referred. Most abortions are performed on demand to deal with unwanted pregnancies. These abortions are simply a form of birth control.
“Elective abortion has been legalized in many countries on the premise that a woman is free to choose what she does with her own body. To an extent this is true for each of us, male or female. We are free to think. We are free to plan. And we are free to do. But once an action has been taken, we are never free from its consequences. . . .
“Life is precious! No one can cuddle an innocent infant, look into those beautiful eyes, feel the little fingers, and kiss that baby’s cheek without a deepening reverence for life and for our Creator. Life comes from life. It is no accident. It is a gift from God. Innocent life is not sent by Him to be destroyed. It is given by Him and is naturally to be taken by Him alone. I testify that life is eternal as He is eternal” (President Russell M. Nelson, “Abortion: An Assault on the Defenseless,” Ensign, October, 2008).
Yes, life is precious! Life is a gift from our Father in Heaven. We have no right to deny life to the innocent children that our Father sends into the world. These are our brothers and sisters – our family. We are behaving like vicious beasts that devour their own offspring. More pointedly, we are behaving like the pagan peoples of old who burned their children in the fires of Moloch. The precious victims of abortion are Moloch’s modern children.
Every civilized individual, every Christian, and everyone who loves the U.S. Constitution, must unite to end the Devilish infanticide that plagues our society. It is a black mark that is causing us to incur God’s wrath. Thomas Jefferson’s warning regarding slavery is applicable to abortion:
“And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.”
God’s justice cannot and will not rest for ever. It will not sit by and watch as His children are callously slaughtered by the millions for long. Like the apostate Israelites whom God punished for killing their infant sons and daughters, so, too, will we reap a similar fate if we continue to sacrifice our children to Moloch. We must end the infanticide. We must end abortion. And we must end it now.
