The Silent Holocaust
by Bob Glaze
Many people, even Christians, believe that the “Law,” commonly called the “Ten Commandments,” is no longer valid. However, there are a total of 613 laws contained in the Law of Moses, which are a catalog of the sins contained in the Ten Commandments in Genesis 20. Are these laws no longer valid? We only have to look to Matthew 5:17-18 to see what Jesus has to say, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
To the best of my knowledge, the earth has yet to pass away; therefore, the laws are still in effect and are the guidelines in which we are to live and function. However, Jesus has made a way for those who accept Him as Saviour to be granted forgiveness when, not if, we violate one of these laws. All forgiveness comes through the Father granted in Jesus name. In the most familiar verse in the Bible, John 3:16, we read these words of Jesus, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
But remember, forgiveness can only be granted when asked for. There are Christians living a life of doubt and sorrow because they have not asked God for forgiveness for sin after salvation (such as abortion), repented, and received His forgiveness. Such is the nature of the subject of this article, the grievous crime of abortion. Sorry to say, most people turn a blind eye to the horror of abortion because the pictures of these murdered babies are too terrible to look at. Their defense—and lack of concern—is just not to get involved. There are many stories about mothers who allowed their babies to be murdered who are haunted until they lose their minds. And these mothers who voluntarily choose to kill their babies are just as guilty as the doctor that provides the procedures.
This article is to shock those who are mothers of aborted babies, fathers of aborted babies, doctors that actually murder the babies, or those who are contemplating being a part of an abortion. God says in His word that those who are guilty of any one of the above will not be held guiltless by Him. Over 95% of all abortions today are simply because having a baby will only complicate the mother’s lifestyle or she got pregnant out of wedlock. Less than 5% are for rape, incest, or because the mother’s health would be at risk.
We all remember the horrible stories of the Jewish Holocaust that took place at the hands of the Nazis in Germany during WWII. According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia the following statistics are noted but may not include all murders: Jews, 6 million; Soviet civilians, 7 million (including 1.3 million Soviet Jewish citizens included in the 6 million); Soviet prisoners, 3 million; non-Jewish Polish citizens, 1.8 million; Serbs, 312,000; people with disabilities living in institutions, 250,000; Gypsies, 220,000; Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1,900; repeat criminals, 70,000; and homosexuals, 70,000. There were a total of 70 to 85 million deaths as a direct result of WWII.
However, as horrific as those statistics are, they pale in comparison to abortion statistics according to www.numberofabortions.com. Since 1980, there have been 1,461,058,080 babies aborted on earth as of the writing of this article. In the United States, there is an abortion every thirty seconds. Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, there have been 59,603,601 (and counting) in the United States alone. Planned Parenthood (actually Planned Murderhood) since 1970 has murdered 7,779,574 babies (July 10, 3:30 p.m.).
The United States has murdered 487,606 so far this year; 23,405 were murdered after 16 weeks of gestation. So far this year, 4,730 have taken place because of rape or incest. Over 17,881,080 black babies have been murdered by abortion since 1973. Worldwide, since 1980, over 1,461,058,580 babies have been murdered by abortion. Worldwide, 21,310,451 babies have been murdered today. Since this webpage was loaded, 1,786 babies have been murdered in the U.S.; worldwide, 71,871 have been murdered since loading this page.
If all these babies had been born, there would be no shortage of workers worldwide. There is no way to calculate the number of geniuses, scientists, mathematicians, physicists, doctors, teachers, statesmen, or even great preachers making contributions to make the world we live in better. But, even more important, our nation would not be under the curse of the sixth commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.”
What is the penalty for killing a baby? Exodus 21:22-23 gives us the prescribed penalty for killing a baby. “If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life.” In other words, if the child lives, then he will pay as the husband determines. However, if the child dies, then the life of the murderer will be required. The only remedy is the forgiveness given by God to a sinner.
“There are many arguments in favor of having an abortion. Many believe that people are pro-life because their religion or political party tells them to be. While I am unashamedly a follower of Jesus, I don’t believe that you need to be a Christian to hold pro-life values. In fact, there are many pro-life atheists. For the record, however, I think that being a Christian and being indifferent to the death of children is entirely inconsistent and I implore anyone who holds these two competing beliefs to examine whether they truly believe that anyone should have the right to choose to abort their child.
“1. If a woman doesn’t have the resources to raise a child, she should have the option to abort the child.
“Another way to phrase this one is to say, If a woman who is poor gets pregnant, it might be a good thing for her to have an abortion; otherwise, the baby might grow up in awful circumstances. We’ll call this the argument from poverty. This argument assumes that poor people have no morals and would have no love for her child. It also implies that a child of a poor family is not worth as much as one from a rich family.
“2. It’s the woman’s body, so it’s her choice. I wish I could say that people don’t still say this, however, it is the mantra of the pro-choice movement. We’ll call this the argument from biology.
“Just because it’s ‘her body’ doesn’t mean she can do what she wants with it. In public, she has to wear clothing, because it’s illegal to be nude in public. If arrested for public indecency, I’m guessing the ‘It’s my body I can do what I want with it,’ defense won’t work. Similarly, if caught shooting up heroin, it’d be safe to assume the ‘It’s my body’ defense won’t work in this case either. At no time is the fetus a part of its mother. When the baby is killed it feels pain, not the mother. At no point, from conception to birth, is the baby the same thing as the woman’s body. Science tells us that from the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg, the embryo (child) contains ALL of its genetic information including gender. This means the child has her own DNA, separate and distinct from her mother’s body. She may be related to her mother, but she is not her mother. Therefore, the baby and the mother are two separate beings both having different bodies and souls.
“3. ‘You’re a man, so you don’t have the right to comment on women’s issues.’ We’ll call this argument the argument from gender.
“The fact that I am a man should have no bearing on whether or not the facts I’ve presented are true. Plenty of men, including President Obama, and many male celebrities, support abortion and are lauded for it by pro-choice organizations. They are held up as heroes and are adored by the pro-abortion crowd. However, if you’re a man that disagrees with killing children, what you have to say doesn’t matter simply because you’re a man” (www.liveaction.org
Hollywood is a corrupt world that seems to only want to please Satan himself. Many, if not most, of its members are “pro-choice” and support Planned Parenthood, at least with their mouths if not their money. Not being knowledgeable of the names and associations with movies or TV, I will list a few of the better-known actors: David Cross, Mark Ruffalo, Ed Harris, Jack Black, David Eizenberg, Kevin Bacon, Alec Baldwin, Stanley Tucci, William Macy, Reese Witherspoon, Lena Dunham, Josh Whedon, Elizabeth Banks, Martha Plimpton, Melissa Gilbert, Liam Neeson, and many more (www.liveaction.org; www.lifenews.com).
Former President Barack Hussein Obama heavily supported Planned Parenthood, which is an international organization funded by our tax money. Obama signed a rule into existence that forbade tax money to be cut off for services for contraception, sexually transmitted infection, fertility, pregnancy care, and breast and cervical cancer screening from qualified health providers, regardless whether they performed abortions. On April 14, 2017, President Trump signed legislation cutting federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other groups that performed abortions (www.nyt.com).
According to www.lifenews.com, Planned Parenthood had been selling body parts of aborted babies for 15 years. This would take their case back into the President George Bush days. Evidently, selling babies’ body parts was the main reason that Planned Parenthood pushed their agenda. Where did all that money go? Perhaps to those who cover it up, such as politicians. Planned Parenthood denied charges that they sold body parts, but an exposé of secret videos proved otherwise.
The exposé videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies shocked the nation. (The following descriptions may be too graphic for some, but you need to know what is going on and the reason you need to become pro-active in ridding this world of the murder of the unborn).
- In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
- In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini,” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
- In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed firsthand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
- In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee [per baby] of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
- In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
- In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
- In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “You want to see something kind of cool?” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
- In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
- The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies—including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
- The tenth video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts—including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies. The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.
- Unreleased Videos: Unreleased videos from CMP show Deb Vanderhei of Planned Parenthood caught on tape talking about how Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates may “want to increase revenue [from selling baby parts] but we can’t stop them. …” Another video has a woman talking about the “financial incentives” of selling aborted baby body parts.”
An even greater shocker is the following description of the heartless and cruel murder of abortion:
“April 18, 2013 | 4:01 PM EDT—Dr. Kermit Gosnell, charged with 7 counts of first-degree murder, killing babies reportedly born alive at his abortion office in West Philadelphia, Pa.
“On the last day of testimony before the prosecution rests in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a former worker at Gosnell’s clinic testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion ‘swimming’ in a toilet and ‘trying to get out.’
“Kareema Cross, a ‘medical assistant’ who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.
“‘Did you ever see those babies move?’ asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore.
“‘Yes, once in the toilet,’ said Cross.
“The baby ‘was like swimming,’ she said. ‘Basically, trying to get out.’
“Adrienne Moton, an employee at the clinic, then took the baby and snipped the back of its neck while the mother was still in the room.
“Cross told the jury that when Shayquana Abrams came into the clinic in July 2008 she was pregnant, ‘and she was big.’
“‘That was the largest baby I ever saw,’ Cross said.
“When the baby was born alive, Abrams was sleeping. Cross said Dr. Gosnell took the baby boy, which she described as 12 to 18 inches long, and put him inside a plastic container the size of a shoebox.
“‘The baby was still breathing,’ she said. ‘He didn’t cut the neck right there.’
“The baby was too big for the plastic container, with his arms and legs hanging over the sides.
“‘The Doctor cut the back of the baby’s neck but didn’t do suction—normally Dr. Gosnell would do suction … to suck the brains out,’ Cross said.
“‘I called people over to come see it [the baby] and we took pictures,’ she said“ (www.cnn.com).
“Baby Boy A, allegedly killed after being born alive and then having his spinal cord cut at the abortion office of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
“The baby boy had curled himself into the fetal position and laid on his side in the boxs. An image of the baby taken by Cross was shown to the court, showing him laying lifeless on his side. (The photo of the infant, Baby A, is included in the Grand Jury Report and is posted in this article.)
“‘It was supposed to go upstairs in the freezer, but it was still there the next day because the janitor complained,’ Cross added.
“She said Dr. Gosnell told her ‘the baby is big enough that it could walk to the store or the bus stop.’
“Eventually the baby boy went in the freezer, Cross said.
“Abrams was 17 when she went to the Women’s Medical Society for a late-term abortion on July 12, 2008. Earlier in the trial, Abrams testified that she was 29 weeks (slightly more than 7 months) pregnant and that the abortion sent her to the hospital for two weeks with complications, including a blood clot in her heart. Abortions after 24 weeks are illegal in Pennsylvania.
“Cross also testified that she witnessed Steven Massof, an unlicensed medical school graduate who worked at the clinic, snip babies’ necks (spinal cords) 25 to 30 times.
“Cross said she saw babies that were still breathing after botched abortions at least 10 times. Dr. Gosnell would cut the back of their necks with scissors, she said.
“The abortion clinic, Women’s Medical Society, operated by Dr. Kermit Gosnell at 3801-05 Lancaster Avenue, Philadelphia, Penn—Grand Jury Report
“‘Linda’s baby,’ as described by the prosecution, was also still alive following an abortion, moving its arm back and forth. Cross said the baby was breathing for 10 to 20 minutes before its neck was cut with scissors.
“On another occasion, Cross said she heard a ‘soft whine,’ or whimper coming from a baby in another room.
“Cross took photographs of the clinic in 2008 out of concern. The photographs, shown in the courtroom, depicted over 50 jars filled with baby’s feet stored at the clinic, which Gosnell said he was keeping for ‘DNA purposes.’
“More photos showed bloody equipment, and Gosnell’s cat sleeping on a chair at the clinic. The cat would roam freely, even in the procedure rooms, and go to the bathroom on the first and second floor, Cross said.
“The trial of Gosnell, 72, in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas is currently in its fifth week. He is charged with seven counts of first-degree murder (seven babies), one count of third-degree murder of a mother, as well as infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks, abuse of a corpse, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses” (www.cnsnews.com).
The excuse many of these “pro-choice” supporters use is that the fetus is not a baby, but even science and technology prove it is. But the real test is whether the Creator says it is a living soul. In Jeremiah 1:5 we read, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
For these and all other sinners, there is still a way for God’s forgiveness. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” In 2 Samuel 12:23 when David’s son died, we read: “… can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” David was reunited with his son in Heaven. Wouldn’t you like to be reunited with that child that departed from you? You can by giving your life to Christ and living for Him, looking forward to that great day of reunion.
