Mr. Obama invoked God's Name to the Planned Parenthood gathering he spoke before recently, in blessing.  During his speech, Obama also noted that there are those "who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century. And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health." [1]  Basic rights?  Isn't it amazing that killing unborn children is now categorized as a "basic right"?  I guess we should not be amazed at that, but many of us are amazed, but often appalled, because of the result of abortion.

To make matters worse, Obama ended his speech to the group with the following words, "Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you. God bless America. Thank you." [2]

Excuse me?  How dare he take the Lord's Name in vain as he has done!  God will no sooner bless Planned Parenthood or America if we continue to murder unborn children at unprecedented numbers simply because it's more convenient than doing what is right!  The thought that God should bless Planned Parenthood is so vile that it should cause us to drop to our knees in abject repentance because of the vanity and hubris of the man we call Barack Obama.

The idea that Obama can glibly invoke God's blessing on a group of godless individuals who are only concerned about maintaining their alleged "right" to destroy life is unconscionable.  In fact, it is satanic.

It reminds me of Romans 1.  There, Paul lays out the logical, gradual, downward spiral of what happens to people's hearts when they reject God over time.  They come to the point where, "although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened."  From there, unbelievably, they come to think themselves wise, but in truth, they are fools.

What Obama has done is horrifying.  As offended as I am at his statement, I am actually in fear for him because of it.  I really am afraid for him for the first time.  I have been angered by him, annoyed with him, and have come to the point where I do not believe I can place any trust in his administration.  But I have never been in fear for him.

Not only will Obama go down in history as the first sitting president to speak before Planned Parenthood, but Obama even went on to respond to the love affair Planned Parenthood had with him by saying their applause and cheers was making him blush.  This is such a travesty on so many levels, yet it is what exists in America.  He reminds me of Herod who accepted the praise of the people in claiming that he was a god.  He should have rejected that praise, but because he did not, God judged him with a horrible death (Acts 12).

Regarding abortions, though we see pockets of resistance toward Planned Parenthood here and there, as well as the overall practice of abortion, we also note that Congress wants the military to begin offering abortion services to military personnel.  Back in December 2012, Colin Powell was trotted out by the elitists to gave an impassioned plea to Congress.  In a letter, he stated in part, "Restoring abortion coverage to our servicewomen and military family members who are survivors of rape and incest would bring the Department of Defense in line with the policy that governs other federal programs, such as Medicaid or the Federal Employee Health Benefit program." [3]

I'm sure the subterfuge within the couched verbiage did not slip by you.  He used two examples of when abortion services might be utilized - rape and incest.  He is implying that these would be the only times women in the military would really ever need to use abortion services.  Of course, the reality is that abortion would eventually become their chosen method of contraception as is the case with a majority of women today.

This past March, Rep. Louise Slaughter introduced a bill that would allow women serving in the military to be able to get an abortion for reasons other than the current rape or incest.  Slaughter assures us that no taxpayer dollars would be spent because the woman herself would have to pay for the abortion.  "The Military Access to Reproductive Care and Health (MARCH) for Military Women Act would lift the ban on abortions at military hospitals for service women." [4]

Commenting on this, Donna Crane, policy director for NARAL Pro Choice stated, "Service women give the greatest sacrifice but are denied the same freedoms and liberties as their sisters enjoy...They’re actually denied their constitutional right to abortion." [5]

Crane might be interested to know that there is some disagreement about whether or not abortion is an actual right under the Constitution.  While we know that abortion is not directly mentioned in the Constitution, some believe it is implied.  However, in my opinion, there is more of an argument against abortion than for it, with the Constitution protecting "posterity" (as stated in the Preamble).  But don't bother your liberal friends with that fact.

Here's what we know.  As long as Obama is in the White House, abortion will continue unabated and will most likely grow in availability and possibly incidence as well.  That is not a good thing for our country.  The fact that Obama can take the Lord's Name in vain with a group that wants no part of God or his moral absolutes is even worse for our country.  Now is the time to pray, work, then pray some more.
