two from Big Hollywood

From Andrew Breitbart’s new project (an answer to the Huffington Post), Big Hollywood come two interesting pieces to read this weekend.

The first from Gary Graham (warning some language at the link) says in part:

No. I’m going to say it. I’m going to say what millions know in the front of their brains, and many, many more millions know in the depths of their hearts…but won’t allow themselves to think it, much less feel it. And believe me, I know I’ll be hated for saying it, I’ll be hated by people who don’t know me, have never worked with me, have never golfed with me, had a drink with me, shot the s— with me. They’ve never met me, don’t want to meet me…but they will hate me. I’m going to say it anyway: Abortion is murder.

I have been on all sides of this issue for most of my life, and I can simply not escape the logic. That fetus a pregnant woman is carrying inside of her, regardless of the gestation stage, is a living, breathing human being. Yes, breathing – the amniotic sac forms 12 days after conception, and in the second trimester the baby is actually breathing the amniotic fluid. It’s not an ‘unviable tissue mass.’ Not a wart, a mole, a skin outcropping, a boil, or a bundle of uncoordinated cells. It’s not just a ‘fetus’.

It’s a baby. Not fully developed, true. Like an infant is not a fully developed and mature adult. But it’s a baby.

Well I do know. And I stand condemned. I’ve paid for three of them and was responsible for probably several more, I’m not really sure. But it breaks my heart. Because I’ve been convicted in my soul. It took years after the fact, but I was shown the Truth. And not to get mumbo-jumbo, oogly-boogly on you, but it was a spiritual awakening that did it. It happened unexpectedly, and it threw me to my knees in sudden tearful epiphany of what it meant for a man to be with a woman, what sex was really designed for by our Creator and… what abortion is.

The second from Maggie Malone, an actress in Chicago is just as stout:

It was brilliant when you [Gary Graham] referred to the statement, “abortions should be rare.” Why would they say that when it’s a safe and legal “procedure” enjoyed by thousands every day? No big woop. Have abortion parties to celebrate saving the whales, lie in the stirrups and get a pedicure. No big deal, right?

There have been so many studies done about post-abortion trauma that will never see the light of day. I for one suffered. I murdered not one but two of my own children in the womb. In both cases I waited until the deadline at the end of the third month. Back then, in the early seventies, I didn’t have the convenience of “Roe V. Wade” or “Doe. V. Bolton.” So it was back alley, and I have to say categorically that in both cases I knew that it was not a blob of tissue.

Call it a mother thing, but you KNOW it’s a life. Would I have changed my mind had I been able to see an ultrasound? I don’t know. I was a teenager. I know I disliked children and decided to never have one. What difference could one life make anyway?

Six years later, in 1977, I was pregnant again. Yeah, I know, but I had bought into the free-love culture. Well, this wasn’t love and it didn’t make me free, but this time I knew I couldn’t murder again and was blessed with a healthy boy.

When my son was about ten, I remember when we joined a large group holding signs in front of a religious based hospital to protest their purchase of sophisticated equipment to perform second trimester murders. The signs simply read, “Abortion Is Murder.” I was busy talking to some moms when I turned around and saw that my son had written on the back of his poster: “I’m glad my mom didn’t abort me.”

Quietly, I sobbed.

The scars from having an abortion do not go away when you finally have a child. As a matter of fact, I was an angry parent until I found forgiveness, forgave myself and grieved the loss of those two lives. This was the result of a spiritual awakening.

  1. For the honesty of Ms. Malone, I am grateful. For her willingness to “forgive herself,” I am sorrowful. It turned out that the end was as bad or worse than the beginning, for she remains in her own eyes the source of justice and finds a goddess in the mirror to look to for atonement. GOD is not pleased with her new life for at least before she grew at peace with herself, she knew she was a horror. Now she is even harder of heart toward the true nature of her life.

    Abortion, as gigantic an issue as it is today, is not the biggest problem we face. The greater crime is the hatred of GOD in each human being. No amount of human lives can compare with this and this we, as Christians, should never forget… so that we celebrate the turn from murder into a life finally pleased in an idolatrous self-satisfaction. Only Christ is sufficient for these things…
