WATCH: This Planned Parenthood supporter who shouted ‘God is a horrible deity’ has no idea what she’s talking about
February 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- I believe that someplace deep down inside the heart of every abortion supporter is the knowledge that abortion is, in fact, wrong, and that it goes against God and his plan for the human family. But, let’s say you’ve convinced yourself that abortion is okay and that it really is a woman’s ‘right to choose,’ then, like this woman in the video, you will likely find yourself at odds with God, even to the point of calling him “horrible.”
Why is this? Because, God is pro-life. And if you are not, and you hate pro-life people, then you will likely hate God.
But is God really pro-life? Sure he is. And in more ways than one. God is the giver of all life. He gives every human being the gift of life and then calls each of us to eternal life with him in heaven.
He told the Israelites in the old covenant: “This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
And Jesus said in the new covenant: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
Saint Irenaeus once said: “The glory of God is man fully alive.” This is an awesome saying to think about. It shows just how pro-life God really is.
I feel compassion for this woman who has put herself at odds with the God of life by championing the death of the innocent preborn. Her position, which she knows deep down is at odds with God, forces her to claim that “God is a horrible deity.” She says this because she does not know who the true living God really is. And she says this because, unfortunately, whether she realizes it or not, she finds herself in the service of false gods — the gods of death and destruction — who are at war with the real God.
Even though the ideology of “choice” and so-called “women’s reproductive rights” may have blinded this woman and pushed into the furthest corner of her heart the knowledge that life is precious, we must pray that one day she will awaken to the truth that all life is a gift. We must pray that she will encounter the God of life and learn to accept his love for her and to love him in return.
