Fischer: If America Doesn't Repent For Abortion, There Will Be A Second Civil War

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer responded to a caller who sobbed over the issue of legal abortion by warning that if the United States does not collectively repent for the sin of abortion and beg God's forgiveness, it will result in a second civil war.

"What I'm saying," Fischer explained, "is that if we do not, as a nation, come to the place of national repentance over the sin of abortion, there's going to be civil war again in this country; there is going to be anarchy, there is going to be unrest, there will be growing violence":

Lila Rose Likens Her Anti-Abortion Activism To Malala Yousafzai

There are few Religious Right activists who can match anti-abortion activist Lila Rose when it comes to displaying unabashed egomania and smug self-satisfaction and her remarks at the Values Voter Summit once again did not disappoint as she compared her guerrilla video campaign against Planned Parenthood to those of young human rights and education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Just as Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban for standing up for the rights of women and girls to receive an education, is fighting for the rights of everyone, so too is Live Action, said Rose ...  even President Obama and his unborn grandchildren:

Rosenberg: God Will Bring His Judgment Upon America For Abortion Just As He Judged Nazi Germany

End Times fanatic Joel Rosenberg spoke at the Values Voter Summit today where he compared legal abortion in America to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany and warned the audience to consider just "what kind of judgment is in store" for a nation that allows legal abortion to continue.

"I don't know that [God] still has a plan and purpose for this country," Rosenberg fretted, saying that God might not save this nation even if it does experience a revival and the people finally turn their hearts back to him.

"Above all, we need to be pleading to our savior to have mercy on our country":

Staver: God Will Not Bless America If Abortion Remains Legal

Outraged by a video of pro-choice activists and two Democratic candidates for governor in Iowa praying for continued access to safe and legal abortion facilities, Mat Staver and Matt Barber asserted that they were not praying to Jesus, but actually to Satan and warned that the participants were putting both this nation and their eternal souls at risk.

Staver compared the United States to Nazi Germany, declaring that "if we continue to go down this path, God will not continue to bless this nation.  How can God continue to bless this nation any more than God could have continued to bless Hitler when he was gassing and destroying and experimenting on all the millions of people and the Jews and others during his atrocities?"

For his part, Barber was not only "shocked" by such a prayer, but also has "a sense of fear for these individuals that they would dare take God's name in vain to pray for the blessings of abortion; we need to pray for their immortal souls"

Barton Cites Decade-Old Survey As Proof Abortion Will Be Illegal In Twenty Years

One of the great things about David Barton is that once he has adopted a talking point, he continues to repeat it regardless of how absurd or out of date it has become.

For example, earlier this week Barton appeared on "Praise the Lord" where he told hosts Matt and Laurie Crouch that legal abortion will not be an issue in twenty years because God has sent a new generation of teenagers who are overwhelmingly pro-life.

Claiming that polls show that 72% of teens oppose abortion, Barton said they were "an answer that God has sent with a new generation; we just gotta train these guys right and turn them loose to get this thing fixed":

If you actually bother to find the poll Barton cites, you discover that it is from 2003 and it found that 72% of teens thought that abortion was morally wrong.

If you trust Barton, then abortion should be illegal within the next decade, since the poll he is using it over ten years old.  The only problem is that the teens in that survey are now adults and according to a Gallup poll conducted in May of this year, 50% of adults ages 18-29 consider themselves to be pro-choice while 41% consider themselves to be pro-life.

Of course, as with so many of Barton's other talking points, he doesn't bother to mention any of that because doing so would completely undermine the very claim that he is making.

Barber & Staver: Remaining Silent On Abortion Is Just Like Staying Silent During The Holocaust

Likening legal abortion once again to the Nazi Holocaust, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber said on the most recent "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast that those who remain silent on the issue today are no different than those who remained silent while the Nazis murdered millions of Jews, warning that they will be judged accordingly by history.

"This is our modern day holocaust," said Staver, before going on to assert that those who do not speak out in opposition to abortion are standing on the wrong side of history.

Barber then expanded on that point, saying there is "an exact comparison" between the two and declaring that "posterity will view those who stood in silence or who tacitly accepted this abortion holocaust just as history views those who silently stood by and allowed the Nazis to murder millions of Jews":

Staver: Legal Abortion Is An 'Absolutely Atrocious Holocaust,' Akin To Nazi Germany

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Daniel Schmid of Liberty Counsel were discussing the investigation launched by the General Accounting Office into how organizations like Planned Parenthood spend public funds.

While Staver welcomed the investigation, he was dismayed that it didn't go nearly far enough, demanding to know when America "is going to wake up to this absolutely atrocious holocaust." Likening legal abortion to what happened in Nazi Germany, Staver demanded that politicians stand up and ask "how can humanity continue to condone this kind of barbaric behavior against our own human species!"

Schmid added that it was all rooted in "the wickedness of America and our need to repent and turn back to the Lord" because, just like in Nazi Germany, "those who hate God, love death."

Staver concluded by urging viewers not to "just get frustrated by this bloodthirsty administration," but rather to take a stand and get involved in the fight to outlaw abortion:

Klingenschmitt: Wendy Davis Is 'Ruled By A Demon Of Murder' And Should Be Prosecuted

As we noted just yesterday, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt tends to see demonic spirits behind just about everything, including Texas state Senator Wendy Davis' support for reproductive choice and her possible run for governor.

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" show, "Dr. Chaps" said that Davis, an attorney, is not qualified to serve as Governor of Texas because she is "ruled by a demon of murder" and that she should, in fact, "be prosecuted herself, probably for having facilitated so many abortions in her own state":

Bound4Life Hosting Prayer Rally to Sway Eighth Circuit Court to Uphold Anti-Choice Laws

Judges have blocked two laws restricting abortion rights in Arkansas and North Dakota, but the anti-choice group Bound4Life says that through dreams they have received a “divine prayer assignment” to hold a “strategic prayer gathering” in St. Louis, Missouri. The organization’s Red Riders Tour will lead a “silent siege” on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, which is based in St. Louis, to pray that the court will uphold the stringent new laws and “reverse the pollution in the land, which is the shedding of innocent blood.”

Cathie Adams: Texas Pro-Choice Protest 'What Evil Must Sound like Emanating from the Pit of Hell'

Texas Eagle Forum head Cathie Adams was no fan of State Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster, which initially blocked anti-choice legislation in the state, until a second special session called by Gov. Rick Perry revived the draconian bill.

In a newsletter sent to Eagle Forum members last week, Adams writes that the pandemonium in the Senate chambers that occurred after the GOP tried to end the filibuster was demonic: “They stood, applauded and yelled at the top of their lungs. Their excruciatingly piercing screams could only be compared to what evil must sound like emanating from the pit of hell.”

On June 25, the final day of the FIRST special session, pro-life leaders watched and waited in the Senate gallery surrounded by orange clad pro-abortion supporters. We’d already tolerated Sen. Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster followed by more delaying tactics by several other Democrat Senators. Then near midnight, Sen. Leticia Van de Putte’s hostile comment about women not being recognized on the Senate floor, triggered a response from the pro-aborts. They stood, applauded and yelled at the top of their lungs. Their excruciatingly piercing screams could only be compared to what evil must sound like emanating from the pit of hell.

It didn’t matter that Lt. Gov. Dewhurst ordered Texas State troopers to clear the gallery, not once but twice, which would have prevented the chaos. A communication mix-up, woefully outnumbered troopers and the deceptive behavior of those in burnt orange before midnight caught everyone by surprise. Mob rule by gallery watchers had never happened before in Texas. Initially I saw troopers politely appeal and gently direct the pro-aborts, but their civil disobedience demanded a bolder directive.

Surrounded by angry anarchists, some tweeting violence, I became fearful until I saw Rep. Bill Zedler and Sen. Kelly Hancock hastily ascend into the Senate gallery to escort us to the Senator’s private office where we stayed until Texas troopers cleared the Capitol. It was after 3 a.m. when I finally checked into my hotel. Later we learned that the pro-aborts’ unruly behavior had delayed the final Senate vote until minutes past midnight, thus killing the pro-LIFE bill.

Buoyed by your prayers and encouragement, I joined other pro-LIFE leaders in calling pro-LIFE Texans to the Capitol. Sacrificially taking time away from summer activities, thousands traveled to the Capitol, wearing blue and eager to stand for life.

But colors weren’t our only contrast. As Christians prayerfully sang the hymn “Amazing Grace,” the pro-aborts chanted “Hail Satan!” While Christians gently witnessed, lesbians kissed in the rotunda, and orange-shirted children held up immoral and obscenity-laced signs that hopefully they did not understand.

Beyond Personhood: Five Ways Conservative State Legislatures Are Impeding Women's Access to Healthcare

Here at Right Wing Watch, we write a lot about the fringe efforts, now increasingly embraced by mainstream conservatives, to challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts by  passing radical “personhood” and “heartbeat” bills. But there is a parallel effort, embraced by major conservative groups and the mainstream GOP, to gradually chip away at Roe by passing incremental state-level bills that cut down on access to abortion services.

Today, People For the American Way released a report outlining five increasingly common ways state governments are undermining women’s right to choose, including implementing TRAP laws, funding crisis pregnancy centers, imposing mandatory waiting periods, banning “race- and sex-selective” abortions, and interfering with the doctor-patient relationship.

But while extreme attacks on reproductive rights – such as radical “personhood” bills that threaten to criminalize even some forms of birth control – rightly receive significant attention and opposition, more incremental anti-choice proposals frequently escape wide notice and face minimal resistance as they become law. Often presented as “common-sense” or “women’s health” measures, these laws are in fact meant to gradually chip away at reproductive health access, undermining the foundation of long-standing rights.

By passing mandatory ultrasound and waiting period laws, or requiring doctors to provide inaccurate medical information, anti-choice politicians create a culture in which women’s rights are up for grabs. As conservatives call for smaller government, they pass laws that intrude into our most private and significant decisions, put a script in our doctors’ hands, and tell us we do not know our own minds. In addition, these laws are meant to chip away at women’s constitutionally protected right to autonomy over our own bodies in a deliberate attempt to undermine Roe v. Wade.

The report also looks at the impact of the movement to pass “personhood” and “heartbeat” bills, which even as it is rejected by voters and courts, presents a real threat to women’s rights.

Since the Supreme Court affirmed a woman’s right to choose an abortion in 1973’s Roe v. Wade, anti-choice activists have been split on how to go about restricting abortion rights. Several major anti-choice groups, including Americans United for Life, argue for taking incremental measures in legislatures and in the courts to chip away at Roe’s protections. AUL’s general counsel once compared his group’s approach to carving a Christmas ham: “Each slice makes it smaller and smaller until it is no more.”

While this “slice-by-slice” approach still dominates the anti-choice movement, more extreme attacks on choice have begun to enjoy some success in states and in the U.S. Congress. These blatantly unconstitutional head-on attacks on Roe – including “personhood,” “heartbeat” and “fetal pain” measures – are frequently blocked by voters, legislatures and the courts. But even if these measures never become law, they present a real threat to women’s health: By spreading these extreme views, anti-choice activists create a culture in which established rights are questioned, abortion providers live in fear and women’s health access continues to be up for debate.

While incremental measures such as those outlined above provide the greatest immediate threat to women’s healthcare access, it is important to also understand the risks posed by extreme broadsides on Roe v. Wade. In fact, anti-choice advocates see even these extremist laws as incremental steps in chipping away at abortion rights: Even if personhood and heartbeat bills are overturned upon challenge, they have succeeded in calling abortion rights into question, and forcing pro-choice groups to spend time and money fighting these unconstitutional bans.

Wiles: 'Raw Satanic Sewage Coming Up Out Of Hell' Ran Through The Streets Of Austin During Abortion Legislation Protests

On yesterday's broadcast, End Times radio host Rick Wiles spoke with an acquaintance of his that lives in Texas and participated in the protest and rallies that took place during the recent special legislative session called in order to pass the restrictive anti-abortion legislation that Gov. Rick Perry signed into law today.

According to Wiles, the behavior of the pro-choice activists was literally demonic as "raw Satanic sewage coming up out of Hell" was running through the streets of Austin before he went on to warn that the "Obamanistas" are just biding their time until they can carry out a "mass slaughter of Christian":

These demons weren't hiding behind bushes, they were out in the street; they were in the streets possessing the people who were demanding the right to murder babies.

I hope this is sinking in to our audience of the severity of the Satanic attack that the church is under right now. Make now mistake about what is happening; this is raw Satanic sewage coming up out of Hell.  The sewer pipes of Hell have broken open and this is raw hate against Jesus Christ, against God, against the Bible, against righteous men and women, against life, against anything that is good and decent.

This is the face of the Obamanista revolution and this is only the beginning.  This is only the beginning of what these people have planned.

If the restraints are ever taken off these people, they're going to kill us. There is going to be mass slaughter of Christians; that's what these people desire.

Franks: If We Don't Ban Abortion Then 'I Really Am Afraid For Us As A Human Society'

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who introduced several anti-choice bills in Congress including the recent 20-week ban, appeared on In The Market With Janet Parshall yesterday to warn about the deleterious societal consequences of not banning abortion. The congressman said if Americans “turn a blind eye” to the “horror” of legal abortion, “I wonder then what hope remains.”

“If we still let ourselves become insensitive at that point then I really am afraid for us as a human society,” he continued.

Franks then once again likened abortion rights to slavery and racism: “We wonder how our forbearers dehumanized African Americans, we wonder and say, ‘couldn’t they see the humanity in them?’ But they didn’t. And today we think they were so blind yet we are blind staggering blind in our own generation.”

Santorum: Media Ignore Alinsky Tactics of Pro-Choice Movement

Joe Pags did his best to fill in for Glenn Beck today on The Blaze, and while interviewing Rick Santorum he referred to abortion rights supporters as “nutcases” who have quite the agenda: “They’ve got a vast communist, socialist agenda; they’ve got a vast anti-freedom, anti-American agenda; they’ve got a vast anti-Christian, anti-Constitutional agenda.”

Santorum agreed that media outlets have “ignored” their nefarious agendas and crooked methods. “This is what community organizers do,” Santrum said, “these are actually tactics that Saul Alinsky and the rest for fifty years in this country have been using these tactics.”

Update 7/16: the story about protesters holding jars of urine and feces that Pags mention has not been verified.

Rios: 'Promiscuous Men' like Obama Behind Abortion Rights

Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas spoke about his role in the anti-choice demonstrations in Austin, Texas, yesterday with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios, who in turn shared with Jeffress the real force behind abortion rights: promiscuous men.

“It is generally, from my opinion, the promiscuous white men who are pushing abortion,” Rios said. “I would even say the promiscuous black ones like our president, oh forgive me I shouldn’t say that, but they’re the ones who want sexual license, they do not want responsibility; abortion has always helped men more than it helps women.”

Jeffress predicted that the Supreme Court might take up a new challenge to Roe and claimed that “Roe v. Wade was the Dred Scott decision of our generation.”

The megachurch pastor maintained that abortion rights opponents will “buy a little more time for our country before God’s judgment” comes to America for decriminalizing abortion, just as God punished Israel and Nazi Germany: “He raised up the Babylonians and the Assyrians to judge Israel for engaging in child sacrifice; he raised up the Allied forces to crush Nazi Germany for taking kids to the gas chambers by the trainloads.”

Barber: 'The First Pro-Choicer ... Was Satan Himself'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber and Steve Crampton were particularly disturbed by the recent incident in Texas where some protestors facetiously chanted "Hail Satan" at a rally during the special legislative session called to pass the state's restrictive abortion bill.

While Barber saw it as evidence that "the pro-aborts are losing their minds," Crampton felt that it accurately reflected the contrast between the two sides in this legal battle where "you have the demons from the escorts and the pro-abortion side and angels from the pro-lifers."

And that made perfect sense to Barber, because "the first pro-choicer ... was Satan himself":

Texas Americans for Prosperity Director: Pro-Choice Women Should 'Choose Sterilization'

As Texas lawmakers debate a bill that would shut down most of the state’s abortion providers, Texas Americans for Prosperity state director and GOP activist Peggy Venable yesterday tweeted that pro-choice women should “choose sterilization” as they are “nasty” and “simply should not procreate.” The Texas Freedom Network grabbed the tweet before she took it down:

Venable has since called the tweet a “lame attempt at humor” and apologized.

Texas State Senator Compares Himself to Jesus, Condemns 'Anarchy' of Pro-Choice 'Mob'

Texas Republican state senator Dan Patrick is not impressed by Wendy Davis. Despite Davis’ all day filibuster of an anti-choice bill, Patrick thinks he is the one that deserves the praise. Patrick, the sponsor of the bill, told Mike Huckabee today that he urged his fellow Republicans to break Senate tradition and stop the filibuster.

He compared his action to Jesus’ criticism of the Pharisees for placing too much importance on “laws and rules.” Patrick went on to encourage other senators to similarly cast off the law, asking, “Are we going to become the modern day Pharisees as Republicans of the Senate?”

Patrick also criticized the crowd that turned out to support Davis, calling it an “organized mob” carrying out an attack on the government. He blamed their behavior on the fact that they were Democrats, because “a tea party would never do this.”

Robertson: US Abortion 'Holocaust' Worse than Nazi Germany, Will Lead to 'Wrath of the Lord'

Televangelist Pat Robertson warned today that America will face divine punishment if it doesn’t recriminalize abortion, telling 700 Club co-host Wendy Griffith today that only anti-choice laws can “avert the wrath of the Lord, but it will come upon this nation unless we do something.” Robertson and Griffith discussed a puff piece about a Pennsylvania program backed by Republican Gov. Tom Corbertt to fund anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers,” which frequently offer misleading and inaccurate information to women.

Robertson hailed Corbett and hoped that his leadership could end the “holocaust” of abortion, which he said is worse than anything done by Adolf Hitler. Griffith called legal abortion “insane” and Robertson warned “we’re going to have to pay a price one of these days for what we’re doing.”

Watch:

Robertson: Wendy, we have fifty-five million babies that have been aborted in this country since Roe v. Wade, fifty-five million, that is a holocaust. You figure, Hitler at the height of his monstrous evil killed six million people, six million; we have in this land of the free and home of the brave, we have killed fifty-five million.

Griffith: And we’re doing it legally, you know, it’s insane.

Robertson: Exactly. The Supreme Court says, hey you have a right to, constitutionally. We’re going to have to pay a price one of these days for what we’re doing. Let’s hope that governors like Corbett and others, the tide will begin to turn and we can avert the wrath of the Lord, but it will come upon this nation unless we do something.

Rep. Trent Franks Pushes Abortion Bill, Questions Legitimacy of Medical Opponents

In an interview with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins yesterday, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) once again expressed confidence that his bill banning abortion after twenty weeks will pass the House. The bill, known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, is set to come to the floor today.

Franks framed the bill as a heroic attempt to protect mothers and children from “heartless monsters” like convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. While Gosnell was a criminal outlier, anti-choice activists have seized on his case to undermine reproductive rights. In an Akin-esque clarification, Franks stated “the medical community – that is, the legitimate medical community,” says that unborn children are able to feel pain twenty weeks. Franks’ source of “legitimate” medical knowledge appears to be a single 2007 paper that used rats as test subjects. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists actually opposes the bill, as well as the validity of the twenty-week pain threshold.

Franks: The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is very truly and simply a deeply sincere effort to protect both mothers and their pain-capable unborn babies entering their sixth month of gestation from these heartless monsters like Kermit Gosnell. That’s the simplest way I know to put it.

Perkins: And Congressman there’s a reason behind this where you have chosen this mark of twenty weeks. This is not just arbitrary but this is based on the testimony of medical and scientific experts that have talked about what takes place at this twentieth week of pregnancy.

Franks: Tony, that’s right. You know, the overwhelming consensus in the medical community, that is, the legitimate medical community, says that these unborn children feel pain at the end of the fifth month or earlier. And the real question here- this is the bottom line. The real question is not whether these unborn children entering their sixth month of gestation are capable of feeling pain. The real question is are we. That’s the big one.
