  • [30:00] What is the believer’s role in the midst of the abortion genocide

What do you think about when you hear the word genocide? Since the origin of sin, the human race has sought to dehumanize a segment of its population. From the Aztecs to the Holocaust the value of human life has been edited to fit a definition of convenience rather than a universally true one. And while all genocide is an unfathomable tragedy there is no genocide that has claimed more lives than abortion. Join Shawn, Steve, and Robert as they explain why abortion is genocide on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Abortion is the textbook definition of genocide

You don't have to delve too far into the comment sections of the internet to find people who are offended by abortion being defined as a genocide. It seems that the culture’s go-to move to keep from having intelligent arguments in favor of their position is to hide behind that offense like a shield. However, when you look at the U.N. approved definition of genocide it’s hard to see abortion as anything but an act committed with the intent to destroy (in whole or in part) a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group. Learn more about how the definition of genocide directly applies to abortion on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

The world’s history of genocide paved the way for abortion

Since the dawn of time, the devaluation of human life has paved the way for the relatively global acceptance of abortion. Aztecs, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Nazis, and even so-called Christians committed atrocities that left the definition of person hood up to preference instead of the Word of God. Even events as recent as American slavery were instrumental in legalizing abortion. In context, Dred Scott set a dangerous precedent that opened the door for a ruling like Roe V. Wade. This week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast will dive deep into the pages of history to find out how humanity’s past has determined the present.

Every genocide needs a scapegoat and abortion is no exception

Scapegoating is a tactic used to orchestrate every major genocide in human history. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s economic decline after World War I. Pol Put used western influence as a reason to murder 25 percent of Cambodia’s population. There is always a reason even if that reason is never good enough to end a human life. What makes the genocide of abortion so unique and terrifying is that you can have any reason to end the life of an unborn child. Economic circumstances, genetic disabilities, or even the child being unwanted are all good enough reasons for places like Planned Parenthood to murder the innocent. Discover why scapegoating is just as effective today with abortion as it has been with genocides of the past on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Understanding why abortion is genocide is the key to ending it

When you look at the numbers alone, abortion is the most horrific genocide in human history. 56 million children lose their lives each year in the name of words like “pro-choice” and “human rights”. The irony of the latter is almost a laughable offense because the main platform in favor of abortion works to dehumanize unborn children with words like “fetus” and “potential life”. However, when the truth is allowed to prevail over propaganda abortion is able to be unmasked as the genocide that it is. Imagine the potential for change if the social justice-minded generation of today was to grasp that reality. That would be the end of abortion. Gain the knowledge you need to define abortion for what it really is on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

As the smell of deep-fried turkey fills the air so does the realization that Thanksgiving is only two days away. There is so much to be thankful for this year not only as a Christian but as a Pro-Life advocate as well. The Fall 2018 40 Days for Life campaign reached 415 cities and saw incredible victories in the fight for life. Join Shawn, Steve, and Robert as they discuss all the reasons why they are thankful for life and the progress made to end abortion in 2018 on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

A former Planned Parenthood manager is now a 40 Days for Life employee

Nothing breaks down walls like being able to connect with someone who has been through the same experience that you are currently navigating. This is what makes the addition of Sue Thayer to the 40 Days for Life staff so powerful. She is a former Planned Parenthood manager and will certainly be a game changer for the Pro-Life movement as 40 Days for Life employee. As the first point of contact, Sue will be able to speak to those looking to leave the abortion giant in an unprecedented way being the first Planned Parenthood employee to lead a campaign. Hear all the ways she is already making an impact on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

The reasons to be thankful for life are still coming in from the Fall 2018 campaign

From the very first day of the Fall 2018 40 Days for Life campaign, stories of children’s lives being saved have poured in. Like never before, mothers and families have been returning to vigil sites to tell volunteers about the differences made in their lives. These powerful reunions have even included volunteers getting to meet the very children that their efforts fought to save. There are so many reasons to be thankful for life this Thanksgiving because more and more incredible testimonies keep coming in long after the campaign has ended. Listen as Shawn, Steve, and Robert share even more hopeful accounts on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Women are walking out of Planned Parenthood due to terrible treatment

You would think that an integral part of convincing women to pay money for an abortion procedure would be making them feel taken care of. That sentiment could not be further from the truth for Christina in Bloomington, Indiana. Her recent experience at a local Planned Parenthood caused her to leave the clinic and choose life for her unborn child. It was clear to Christina that the staff were not concerned with her well being and even remarked to a 40 Days for Life volunteer that the whole place felt “evil”. The mask of “women’s healthcare” is beginning to slip at the nation’s leading abortion provider and on this episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast you will learn exactly what that means for the Pro-Life movement.

Pro-Life statistics are at an all-time high

From the number of cities impacted by the most recent 40 Days for Life campaign to abortion facilities closing all around the world the numbers in the mission to end abortion are ever increasing in favor of life. Even as the 46th anniversary of legalized abortion approaches there is so much to be thankful for. 40 Days for Life has seen over 15,000 babies saved from death and the number of abortion workers who have left their job during a campaign just reached 186. With all of this incredible news, it is getting easier to see a day when Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Get all of the statistics coming out of the Fall 2018 campaign on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Topics We Cover On This Episode

  • [1:23] All of the exciting things happening at 40 Days for Life
  • [6:20] Socialists, Anarchists, and Satanists in Madison, Wisconsin
  • [10:05] How the arguments against life have changed
  • [14:48] Irony will destroy the abortion industry

The topic of spiritual warfare seems to be a hit or miss subject in Christian culture. While some give the Devil too much power others are content with ignoring the existence of the enemy altogether. The truth is that there is a very real spiritual battle going on. This was never more evident than during the recently concluded Fall 40 Days for Life campaign. From socialist protesters banging pots and pans to in-your-face abortion advocates dressed up as Catholic priests, this campaign had it all. Hear Shawn, Steve, and Matt break down the realities of spiritual warfare on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

In just a few short years the arguments for abortion have drastically changed

Not long ago the argument for abortion was based on a “scientific” approach. It centered around the dehumanization of the unborn and a convenience based definition of life itself. Due to the crumbling foundation of these positions, a new approach seems to have risen from the rubble. Fueled by an unprecedented level of hate, current abortion advocates are now arguing that Pro-Life views are somehow a direct attack on their identity and that they seek to deny women basic healthcare rights. How does this affect the fight for life? Find out on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Irony is killing the credibility of the abortion industry

One of the loudest cries heard from those protesting the most recent 40 Days for Life campaign was the accusation of bigotry. That somehow wanting to protect the lives of the unborn was an overtly intolerant act. Ironically, while 40 Days for Life volunteers were peacefully expressing their views the ones calling them “bigots” were seeking to silence the Pro-Life message by any means they deemed necessary. These “tolerance warriors” acted with such hate and aggression that even Planned Parenthood asked them to leave because they were creating physical and emotional barriers that prevented women who were seeking abortions from getting inside. Learn how these poignant examples of spiritual warfare are killing the abortion industry on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Recent actions of protesters reveal the evil nature of abortion

All throughout Scripture we see the Devil’s plot to end the lives of innocent children from the attempts of kings to kill the firstborn to the prophets of Baal sacrificing babies as an act of worship. Today the blood lust of ancient history masquerades itself as abortion. Typically you see this procedure supported by well-dressed politicians and scientists doing their best impression of someone who cares about women’s health. However, Pro-Abortion protesters have been letting the mask slip to reveal the truly evil nature of abortion. At numerous vigil sites they dressed up as Satan and intentionally engaged in behavior that mocks God and those who believe in Him. Discover how far some protesters will go to deter those who stand for life on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Pro-Life legacies will be the end of abortion

Amidst a vast backdrop of spiritual warfare during the most recent 40 Days for Life campaign, one image stands out. Mother after mother returning to the place where they decided to choose life to tell volunteers about the difference they made. Not only that, but these mothers came back to show volunteers this difference by bringing or showing pictures of the children who wouldn’t be alive without their efforts. It provides an incredibly important reminder of the legacies being created by those who are willing to persevere against persecution for the sake of the unborn. These children will grow up to stand where their parents stood and be a voice for life for generations to come. Listen as Shawn shares just a few of these hope-filled stories on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

As the largest 40 Days for Life campaign yet comes to a close there are more God stories to tell than could possibly be told in one podcast episode. These stories represent courage, life, and hope in a way that screams God is holding the pen. They speak of divine moments that only our Lord could orchestrate where lives are being saved and death is met with defeat. All around the world people are making the decision to choose life in the midst of vast political and spiritual opposition. Get a sneak peek at everything God has done over the last 40 days on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Courageous volunteers speak life in the midst of chaos

From Madison, Wisconsin to Munich, Germany 40 Days for Life volunteers face daily opposition from those who wish to silence the Pro-Life message. Enduring an onslaught of hate from local protesters, these incredible volunteers remain steadfast in their mission to protect the unborn and pray for an end to abortion. Their peaceful presence speaks louder than any Pro-Abortion chant and it is their perseverance that the Lord uses to write the God stories shared on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

A decision for life is a decision for legacy

Every 40 Days for Life campaign is different. Each one seems to present a different theme from abortion facilities closing to mothers making the decision to choose life. However, volunteers don’t always get to see the impact that they make. This year has been marked by story after story of people coming back to prayer vigil sites to thank volunteers for how they helped them or their loved ones make the decision to keep their child. Volunteers all over the world are getting to see the fruit of their labor and are realizing the generational legacies they have helped preserve. Not only have families been saved but a few have been started thanks to couples meeting at a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. Hear the details of these God stories on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Money is Planned Parenthood’s number one priority

Upon deciding to choose life and walk out of an abortion facility one mother gave a 40 Days for Life volunteer the price list of services offered by Planned Parenthood. The list demonstrated that Planned Parenthood’s number one priority was not the health of women, but the health of their own wallet. Pregnancy tests showed a 6000% markup. Most pregnancy centers offer free ultrasounds, but Planned Parenthood guards them behind a hefty price point because they know that mothers who receive them are far less likely to have an abortion. Which then leads to the staggering cost of an abortion procedure that clearly displays the truth: Planned Parenthood is a business. Get all of the financial facts for abortion on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

God stories are the fuel that keeps the Pro-Life movement going

Each moment in a 40 Days for Life campaign is like a single thread in a beautifully woven tapestry. Up close, it can seem boring or unimportant. Yet when you back up and see the big picture words can’t describe the significance that each individual thread brings to the artistic story being told. This is why God stories are so important. They remind those in the fight for life that even when nothing seems to be happening that they are apart of a much bigger story. That the big moments can’t happen without the sacrifice of everything in between. Be encouraged today as you listen to these incredible campaign stories on this week’s episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.
