4 Common Pro-Choice Arguments That Defy Logic

In America, we have aborted over 60 Million children since 1973 when Roe V. Wade became the law of the land. Proponents of abortion on-demand use four common arguments when faced with this tragic reality. In this article I want to discuss these four talking points and address each one individually.

#1 The viability of the Fetus

In this very common talking point, the pro-choice advocates point out that a fetus that is not “viable” has no inherent value or right to life. What exactly do they mean by viability? They mean that without the mother or “host” body, they would be unable to survive on their own. The obvious flaw in this argument is quite apparent when you apply this same principle to a human who is on life support at any stage of life. Does a person on life support suddenly become less human? Do they suddenly forfeit their right to exist? Do we suddenly gain the power to determine if they live or die? Of course not, this argument becomes quite absurd when viewed from this perspective.

#2 A woman can do what she wants with her body

This might be convincing if this were actually true in every other area of life… but again a double-standard exists for the unborn. If a woman walks out in public and threatens to commit suicide, do we all just shrug and say “she has a right to kill herself”? What if law enforcement is nearby? Will they just move along and let her kill herself? No. She will be taken into custody for psychiatric evaluation. Against her will.

Another clear example, we do not allow women to drink and drive. Why not? It’s her body! Yes, but she could hurt or kill another human, so this act is illegal, as it should be. When dealing with abortion, a woman’s right to choose should end when any other life is threatened with harm or death. Especially the voiceless child in her womb.

#4 We have enough unwanted babies in the world

As with the first two arguments, again we find this ridiculous idea that could NEVER be applied to any other situation. Should we gather up all the children of the world who lack loving parents, who live in poverty, who don’t have shoes or regular meals and kill them all? Do these precious angels lose ALL human value because they are unwanted? What about elderly people who are left in the care of state run facilities at the end of life, abandoned by their loved ones… do they also deserve death? When I consider the millions and millions of aborted babies, especially those that were simply “unwanted” I often contemplate which of them may have cured cancer, or become President. Sadly we will never know.

#4 Women who receive abortions are less likely to suffer mental health problems than women denied abortions.

This could be the most troubling argument I have ever heard. A peer-reviewed study comparing the mental health of women who received abortions to women denied abortions found that women who were denied abortions “felt more regret and anger” and “less relief and happiness” than women who had abortions. The same study also found that 95% of women who received abortions “felt it was the right decision” a week after the procedure (Abortion ProCon.org).

Many years ago I abandoned two cats on a neighborhood doorstep, because I was moving into a new apartment that didn’t accept pets. That decision has haunted me for nearly a decade, my wife saw how emotional I had become after the fact and returned to the home to try to find them. We never saw those cats (Pip and Scoot) ever again, and just typing about it now, makes me weep. The grief over that momentary lack in judgement, over that decision I made due to the pressures of life will follow me to my grave.

How much more would the decision to kill a child haunt a mother? The idea that a woman felt it was the right decision a week after an abortion… is rather irrelevant.  As a man, if I AGREED that my wife should abort a child it would haunt me forever… and I am not the one having the procedure. Every time I looked into the eyes of a child I would see my murdered son or daughter and feel the blood on my hands. It would be haunting.

So how have we become so desensitized in America?

This question at one time puzzled me, but now I am desperate to know the answer. My guess is that this is multi-layered but it begins with the perception that a Human Fetus is not really a Human at all. The pro-choice advocates prefer terms like “lump of tissue” or “clump of cells” and nearly always refer to the unborn child as an “it”. Imagine if you approached a woman who was planning to give birth and referred to her child as an “it”… socially unacceptable right? Yet this is how another fetus in the same stage of development is referred if he or she is about to be aborted.

If you are reading this article right now, and you are hurting, in a dark place, feel pressured or are contemplating having an abortion… would you pause for a moment. Would you consider that in just a few short months a baby boy or girl will be brought into the world filled with life and love. It may seem impossible to you, maybe you can’t figure out how you will afford it, or continue going to school, or pursue your career or tell your parents. The reasons you may be using to justify this decision could be many but I would encourage you to consider all the ways a child would be a blessing in your life.

Imagine your son or daughter growing up, going to school, graduating and going to college, getting married and having kids of their own. One day you are surrounded by grandkids and even great-grandkids. You will probably look deep into your child’s eyes often and thank God you didn’t make that decision to abort so long ago. You will rock them to sleep in your arms and feel a love you could never have imagined.

If you need help right now, you can reach out to my friends at the Human Coalition by clicking on the image below or you can email me directly: standtallforchrist@gmail.com.
Most of all I want you to know that you are not ALONE. Even if everyone in your life is pressuring you to abort your child, you are not alone. You are loved and there are many people you have not met, that desperately want to help you through this difficult time. Reach out before it’s too late.

Watch this Movie Before it is Banned!

Today I was at work, and while on a break, was watching YouTube videos on my phone. The channel was Apologia Studios and the video was of Pastor Jeff Durbin ministering outside an abortion clinic. My wife called me and stated there was a movie we had to watch TONIGHT. She continued and stated that she was watching one of her YouTube channels, and they talked about a movie called Gosnell that was being banned around the country.

She asked if I had heard of a guy named Gosnell, and I remembered the story from years ago about an abortion doctor who went to prison for murder. She then revealed she was also watching Apologia Studios and felt that we really needed to see this movie (more on that later).

So at 8PM we went to see Gosnell. Now I have followed the pro-life, pro-choice debate for years and have written about it here before, but nothing really prepares you for the reality we live in… that is on full display with this film. The leftist media is painting this movie as a “right-wing” propaganda piece… and trying to convince everyone that Gosnell was an isolated case or WORSE; that if abortion is restricted or made illegal, then MORE Gosnell clinics will be forced to open their doors.

Let me restate my title for this article: Watch this Movie Before it is Banned!

Even though audiences have been shown to rate this movie highly (98% Audience score on Rotten Tomatoes) many smaller theaters are dropping it. In our neck of the woods it was playing at several theaters just a few days ago, and now it’s down to just two.

There is massive, powerful, political machine at work in this country fighting to keep abortion-on-demand available to anyone who wants one and the body count left in the wake of this machine is staggering.

Since Roe Vs. Wade in 1973 we have aborted over 60 MILLION BABIES in America. Just to put that in perspective we currently have 325 Million people living in America, meaning we have killed over 18% of that number in the womb.

Let that information soak in for a minute. Now realize that we have a society, the most advanced in the world, that grinds along feigning moral outrage over ridiculous ideas like “gender fluidity” while baby killing factories are hard at work, right out in the open. What I find most ironic is that the “left” consistently paints the “right” as Nazis… while their platform and agenda is worse than every Nazi concentration camp combined… and not just a little worse… VASTLY worse.

It is estimated that Nazis murdered 6 Million Jews right out in the open, business as usual… for the betterment of a white world. We are worse. Not just in the number of innocent people we have killed, but in the laid back attitude we have taken while it happens, every day, every hour.

God’s Plan and Timing

Early I was sharing about how my wife was watching a video from the same YouTube channel I was watching, at the exact same time. After going to see this movie, I have no doubt that God wanted us in that theater. Now I have to ask myself, for what purpose? It is now after midnight and my eyes are heavy and I just want to keep writing.

God has spoken to me tonight, and I realize I can no longer sit on the sidelines as God’s children are murdered by the millions, I have to fight for what is right. It is my hope and prayer that you will find this movie and watch it! If you are already pro-life, it will make you wonder what you can do right now to fight for the unborn, if you are pro-choice it just might make you rethink your position and value a life over a woman’s right to choose. Either way, I hope you watch it and see for yourself.

Stay Strong & Stand Tall,
Keith

Undercover Investigation at Planned Parenthood

Former Abortion Doctor: “I murdered more people than Ted Bundy”

Get Out To Vote!

This morning early voting opened in Nevada and I arrived at my local polling station, excited to cast my vote. Two things became apparent very quickly… first the line grew fast snaking it’s way through the store. Second the diversity of the voters was amazing, young and old along with many different races and ethnic groups present.

Democracy in action, it is a beautiful thing. No matter what side of the political spectrum you find yourself, it is my hope you exercise your right to vote. Don’t take it for granted, you might be amazed to know how few countries in the world actually have a truly democratic election system. If you are an American you are very lucky to live under the freedoms our great nation provides. Show your gratitude by casting your vote. Fulfill your civic duty by casting your vote.

If you are a Christian in America reading this, understand how very important the mid-term elections are… if Democrats seize control of the House or Senate they will effectively shut President Trump’s agenda down. We cannot allow that to happen. He has made great strides in his short time in office, but there is much more work to do.

You may not like him as a person, or his attitude or his tweets… but as a Christian you should be very happy with his policies. We have seen what eight years under Democratic rule looks like and for many of us, we wish we could turn back the clock and undo the insanity that Obama and the Social Justice Warriors have unleashed.

Unfortunately we cannot go back in time, but we can fuel the future and support President Trump for another six years. We can help him Make America Great Again.

Comment below if you exercised your right to vote.

The Insanity of the Gender Debate

The following video clearly illustrates the insanity of the supposed “Gender Debate” taking place all around the Country. The idea that people can freely choose their Gender based on how they feel inside leads to places where logic and common sense have no value. Watch this short video…

We have come to a place where a significant percentage of the population agrees that a man can assume the gender role of a woman simply because he feels a certain way (and vice versa). Making matters worse this same group believes the rest of us have a duty to reinforce this delusional behavior.

We haven’t gone so far as Canada yet, where they are passing laws making it hate speech if you don’t refer to someone by their “preferred pronoun”, but we are clearly on that path.

Why is this a problem?

We have built a society based on definitions and labels, this is how we communicate as a species. We have also put in place many social structures based on these labels. For example, when a person reaches the age of 55 they are generally considered a senior citizen and qualify for many social benefits, like discounts in many places.

But what happens when a 20 year old man, decides to “identify” as a 60 year old man? Would he then qualify for the discounts? Or would we have to dispense with all of the social benefits we have previously set aside for seniors? Or should we simply stick with what we know to be true, you are a certain age, and you cannot change that number, no matter how much you feel like something else.

You may be thinking, this is ridiculous, no one is trying to identify as a different age!! Let me ask you one question, are you sure about that? Allow me to introduce you to one such man… Stefonknee Wolschtt, 46, a Toronto man who left his wife and seven children and now identifies as a 6 year old girl, living with an adopted family.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/stefonknee-wolschtt-transgender-father-leaves-family-in-toronto-to-start-new-life-as-a-six-year-old-a6769051.html

The world we live in is changing rapidly, or progressing if you will. However, progression is only a good thing if you are heading in the right direction. As a nation we are heading in the exact opposite direction of truth and morality. The murder rates of unborn children is in the tens of millions, the family unit all over the country is broken in pieces, the divorce rates in and out of the church are skyrocketing, drugs are taking over our children at alarming rates, and now we are in rebellion against God’s creation in ways I would never have imagined.

These are troubling times, and this leads me to believe that Jesus is on his way back very soon. In the meantime, I plan to Stand Tall against the lies of the enemy in this war against reality. It saddens me that people suffer with mental illness, but one thing you never do when someone is living in an alternate reality is reinforce their beliefs. The loving thing to do is encourage them to seek treatment, but be careful, you might get arrested for hate speech.

Prayer Warriors Needed: Witch Coven Planning Hexing Ceremony Against Kavanaugh

Fox News is reporting that a Witch Coven is planning a hexing ceremony on Saturday October 20, 2018 from 7:00-10:00 PM in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets to the event are being sold for $10.00 and proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

You may think I am joking, you may think there is no way this is real. I am not, and it is. In several articles I have written about the forces of Satan working right out in the open in America as no one blinks an eye. This is just the latest example.

If you are a Christian I am not sure what you believe about witchcraft. You may think magic isn’t real or it’s all just nonsense… but do you know what the Bible teaches? Witchcraft is a form of adultery that dabbles in dark arts and mysticism, and those who practice it arouse the anger of The All Mighty God:

2 Chronicles 33:6
6
 He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger.

Leviticus 19:31
31
 Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

Revelation 21:8
8
 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually
immoral, 
those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

The warnings against witchcraft are peppered all through scripture and people need to take it very seriously. Now I am not suggesting we re-open the Salem Witch Trials, however we need to use our most powerful weapon against these evil forces… prayer.

While I think it would be amazing to have a group of strong Christians arrive at this event and rebuke the forces of darkness in the name of Jesus Christ, we must not limit ourselves or God’s power with geography.

Next Saturday on October 20th, from 7-10 PM would you join me in prayer rebuking any dark magic these witches conjure?

You do not have to pray for three hours, just pray during that time. Wherever you are in the world, it doesn’t matter. The power of prayer will crush the enemy when faithful Christians band together in faith.

So do me a favor, hit the like button if you want to join me in prayer. Next, share this article on your social networks and let’s see just how may Christians will join us.

Pray Warriors, where are you?

Questioning My Calling

On Wednesday January 24, 2018 I was meditating on the Word of God. For the very first time in my Christian life of 11 years I heard the audible voice of God and this is what He said “One day you will raise a church”. This was something  that freaked me out, if I am being honest, Why? Because the voice I heard sounded just like my voice, so I had to ask myself… am I going crazy?

Keith and Ragesh
Rajesh and Me

Two days later on Friday January 26th at 9:50PM God gave me my answer. That night I met with my Christian Brother Rajesh who loves God more than most men I have met. I told him I thought God had given me a message… he was very excited to hear this and told me God had also given him one. When I shared the story, he just nodded and smiled… so I asked him what message he heard from God. He said, God told him I was going to be called into Ministry.

This BLEW me away and I started talking to different Pastors I know about this matter… there were so many questions I had… where do I start? How could he use me to Pastor? I have other plans for my life, this is insane!

Flash forward to today, nearly eight months later to the day, and I have not taken ONE step forward on the path to my calling. The excuse I give myself goes like this… College is too expensive, I want to go the Grand Canyon University but by the time I finish Seminary I will have a student loan debt of nearly $50,000… and my wife and I are really trying to focus on getting and staying debt free. I don’t have the funds to pay my way through College as I go, so I am just stuck for the moment.

But as I said that is just an excuse, maybe the real truth is that I’m afraid. Maybe the calling is too great. Maybe I know the man I have been in my life and don’t want to risk leading a church and then one day possibly falling back into pornography. Maybe I feel like putting myself on a stage to give a sermon is the last thing I need to do, my pride has been a huge struggle in my life… how much more prideful could I become at the pulpit?

When I sit here writing these thoughts out I can see how the enemy has filled me with doubts and fear. We know that our God is not a God of confusion, but of clarity. Back in January God gave me that clarity, then He waited to see what I would do… and now we know: Nothing.

But that nothing, has to end here and now. So today I reached out to Grand Canyon University to request the information I need to begin the fall semester. It’s time to start taking those steps forward and allow God to correct my path as I go.

Share Your Thoughts

Should someone who is called into the Ministry be concerned about the financial cost of Bible School?

Does God call the prepared, or does He prepare the Called?

Is it normal to doubt God’s Calling?

How many confirmations would you need to follow the Call of God?

An Open Letter to Porn Addicted Christian Men

Dear Brothers in Christ,

On this blog I have written extensively on the harmful effects and devastation that viewing pornography brings into your life. I have shared my testimony of how pornography addiction nearly destroyed everything in my life… my marriage, my job, my health, and my position in the local church.

Today I want to write to you, man to man, brother to brother. If you are caught up in a secret habit of pornography it is time to take a stand and bring it to the light. I know what you are thinking… you can never tell anyone, it would ruin everything. Your wife would be devastated, your marriage might fall apart, you might lose your job, you might be shamed at church, your children… what would they think?

You need to understand something… all of those thoughts are not your own… they are whispers from an enemy that wants to destroy EVERYTHING in your life. You see the enemy wants you to keep everything hidden away in the darkness, this is where sin grows. They know if you bring your habit into the light of day, the hold it has over you will evaporate.

Believe me, I understand how incredibly difficult it is to tell ANYONE about a secret porn addiction… but that is exactly what you need to do, before it is too late. If you find yourself mindlessly watching porn with deep levels of regret afterwards you are addicted my friend… and just like any other addiction you need to take it very seriously.

At this point there is no question in my mind, if this article was written for you, that you desperately want help, you desperately want to quit this habit for good. So where do you go from here? The first step is to STOP watching porn, which means you will need to get some digital protection on your devices… RIGHT NOW. There are many programs that help in this area, but as you may know from reading my blog, I highly recommend Covenant Eyes which I have personally used for years with great success. Get something installed on your devices as soon as possible, you need to put defensive walls up quickly.

Next you need to come clean about your addiction, this is going to be the toughest step at first… but once you take it… the most exhilarating and life changing. You have to decide who you are going to share your struggle with. My advice is to seek out trusted counsel within your local church, preferably a member of the Pastoral staff. Most churches today either have programs to help you, or a list of other churches in the area that do. Once you have sat down with your Pastor, it is time to prayerfully approach your wife. You  need to be honest with her about your addiction, and commit to her that you will get the help you need. Show her the steps you have already taken (the software and the support group), deeply apologize to her – she will be in a lot of emotional pain at first… but if you approach her prayerfully it is my hope she will come along side you to support you in your recovery.

You need to realize something very important, in most everyone’s eyes pornography IS a form of adultery… it is certainly the case in your wife’s mind. This means, Biblically speaking, she has every right to divorce you. Let that sink in for a moment. She could divorce you, take your children and she would have every right to do so. This is the incredibly dark and destructive nature of sin… particularly sexual sin. So it is VERY important that you get on your knees in prayer to the Lord before you have that conversation with your wife.

The last thing I want to encourage you to do is download and read my ebook Shattering the Chains of Sexual Addiction. This book is free and a very quick read… it outlines everything I have done to break free of porn. When Jesus shattered those chains in my life, I knew a huge part of my ministry was going to be helping other men find that freedom.

It may seem like you are so lost in your addiction that there is no way out. OR even worse you may think you can continue to hide your addiction and no one will find out. On both of those points you are DEAD WRONG (take it from someone who has been on the path ahead of you). You are never SO lost that Jesus Christ cannot restore you… and if you continue your life of hidden sin, you WILL be discovered… it’s only a matter of when.

Brother, you don’t have to live in darkness anymore and as a Christian man God wants and expects more for you… He wants you to live a life of victory. If you want to talk one on one, you can email me anytime… I will be here. Standtallforchrist@gmail.com

Stay Strong & Stand Tall
