If you are not aware of what the Abortion Abolitionist movement is doing, you need to be. This is a seed that has grown into a sapling and has potential to bear fruit for life and the healing of the nations in the Kingdom. There is much work to be done, but this is a great start.
I left my house at 4am last Friday, and arrived back home at 12:30am this morning, all in support of Texas HB 948, to Abolish Human Abortion in total, now.
During this mission to the Abolish Human Abortion Texas conference and rally, a large group of Abortion Abolitionists marched 2.3 miles through downtown Austin chanting, “Equal Justice, Equal Protection; We the people demand abolition,” among other things, handing out tracts and cards along the way. Hundreds of heads turned and smartphones were held aloft all along the way, while shouts of support competed with rabid feminist taunts of “my body” and middle fingers.
As we arrived at the capitol building, we entered an even larger throng of Abolitionists chanting the haunting song “A Voice as Strong as Thunder,” while a shofar blew in the distance, applause and cheers ascended, and tears were being shed. About 1,000 serious souls sent up war cries, praise, and prayer, creating a mixture of solemn silence and loud anticipation.
For the next hour or so, several people, leaders, and supporters, as well as the seven co-authors of the Bill, spoke and rallied at the capitol building. We learned that this bill was just referred to the State Affairs Committee, and that the next action step is to pressure the Chairman of that Committee to give it a hearing. Learn about that here.
The pro-infanticide, pro-abort, pro-murder forces have already arrayed against this. While the early reports are that calls coming into the capitol are overwhelmingly against the bill, the secretary also added that most of those calls are from out of state. In-state calls are supported, but are being drowned out by organized out-of-state pro-abort forces. We need to fight back. Even if you’re not in Texas, you can counteract the nationwide cult of death by calling into the Texas State Affairs Committee in support of HB 948.
Why would you want to do this? First, because you are a Christian. You love your neighbors—the Abolitionists fighting and the unborn ones.
Second, because it will help end abortion in your state, too. The Abolish Human Abortion movement is built on a radically decentralized model that focuses on individual, local, and state level efforts. I have written about the power and viability of this model in Restoring America One County at a Time. In short, what’s being exercised in Texas right now (and also in Idaho and other places), can and will be exported to every State in this nation in order to Abolish Human Abortion totally and End Abortion Now. Your help and participation in supporting others’ state efforts now is key to building the momentum toward similar efforts around the country.
Third, because the “traditional” pro-life movement has utterly failed. It has failed for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is because “incrementalism” is a method which generally only works for evil causes, not righteous ones. While that may sound shocking to many of you, I explain a little bit of why in the brief exhortation I gave the conference yesterday, called “Crumbs, Dust, and Trigger Words.” Watch what was captured of it (most) below.
Fourth, you should do it because, as Bojidar Marinov shared with us, the biblical message and mission is one of optimism: the future is ours. The only sure way to fail is not to try. The only way to win is to be involved. Get involved.
Spend a little time today scrolling the Abolish Human Abortion Facebook page, watch most of the several talks at this weekend’s conference (all great and inspiring!), and make sure to call the Committee in Texas. Get involved, then look for an Abolitionist group in your area.
(Apologies: the first few minutes were beset by technical difficulties. Also, the background noise near the end was the rythmic praise and worship from a church meeting in the next conference room—but the timing was perfect .)
