This post might be a touchy subject for some. It may strike a nerve in some readers. If it does, then maybe it ought to. It waa the first thing that came to my mind when I heard the word “Race”‘ today as our topic for 5 minute Fridays.Most times my posts are uplifting and oftren funny. But there’s nothing funny about PP or its mission. I’ve been reading lately from some very good authorities on both sides of the subject that the founder of PP was a racist and an atheist and she started the first PP with the underlying notion of eliminating the African American race and slow the birthrate of new babies among Black women. The authority I read reminded me that most of PP’s “clinics” are in poor parts of town. PP claims to be about women’s health and offers their murder for hire to all women. But their primary target is the Black race. I must admit I wasn’t surprised to learn those things. I have been an avid pro life supporter all my life, as I believe any authentic follower of Christ must be as well.
I’m not getting on my stump here. Besides, it’s in the shop for some work. My purpose is not to incite or inflame passions on eitheir side of the issue. People who call themselves “Christians” are on both sides of the fence on abortion, although I don’t see how that’s possib.e. How can you read any part of Psalm 139 and not believe that God created every life and breathed it into a mother’s womb before the foundations of the earth? Oooops. Time’s up. Not intending to start a debate here. Just expressing what came to my mind when I saw the word “Race” this morning.
