4 Ways To Stand Against Planned Parenthood
Perhaps you have heard about, read about or seen the infamous videos of doctors from Planned Parenthood callously discussing the sale of aborted baby parts. If you haven’t, you must have been on that island Tom Hanks was stranded on in Castaway, or maybe you have been on a news fast. Whatever the case, if you care about mothers, children and fathers, you need to look, even if you have to force yourself. Evil does not go away when we pretend it is not there.
If you have seen the videos – and there are more to come – you may wonder: “What can I do?”
First, pray for your own heart and mind and that you would remember your own need of grace so that when you act and speak, you do so in a loving way toward others.
Second, pray for God to save people like He saved the apostle Paul, who tried to destroy the lives of others. We should speak and work for justice on earth, but justice on earth without salvation is eternally deadly.
Third, post on social media. Don’t let people be ignorant. Keep up the pressure. I know it is uncomfortable and horrible, but the curtain needs to be pulled back or nothing will change.
Fourth, call your elected representative -whether they be Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc. Before you dismiss this action-step because you assume this is just a Republican political ploy in an election year, keep in mind that abortion is by its very existence a political issue. It is so readily available because it is lawful and because Planned Parenthood gets millions of dollars of tax-payer money. Politicians respond to phone calls, especially when there are lots of them. Here is the contact information:

Doing nothing is the worst kind of something that can be done.
