Guest Post: Blasphemy Nothing New to Abortion Movement…or Clergy

January 25th, 2008 by Halli

From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life

Numerous pro-Life Christians from around the country have expressed outrage and repulsion at the antics of Planned Parenthood in Schenectady, New York this week.

The Times Union reported on a small group of clergy who concocted some sort of “blessing” ceremony of Planned Parenthood’s new abortion facility in the city. It was in part a celebration of Roe v. Wade, and partly a propaganda effort designed to further dull the nation’s conscience to the horrors of abortion.

The Reverend Larry Phillips of Schenectady’s Emmanuel-Friedens Church (United Church of Christ) led the pagan ceremony, declaring Planned Parenthood’s killing facility to be “sacred and holy” ground. He was joined by the Reverend Abby Norton-Levering, Rabbi Matt Cutler and the Reverend Bill Levering, senior pastor of the First Reformed Church.

Christians are rightly offended by such contempt for the Gospel, but we need to realize that this compromise with evil is nothing new to the American clergy. Planned Parenthood operative Linda Scharf is quoted as saying, “Clergy have long supported Planned Parenthood’s mission …. The clergy were instrumental in getting abortion services legalized in the United States and right here in Schenectady. I know a member of the clergy who was part of an underground who directed young women to safe abortions before Roe v. Wade.”

For those interested in learning more about Satan’s work among the nation’s ministers, we urge you to find a copy of Tom Davis’s Sacred Work: Planned Parenthood and Its Clergy Alliances. He is an advocate of abortion and documents in his 2005 book the extent to which apostate clergy have helped legitimize the killing of God’s innocents. Here is a chilling excerpt which proves the truth of Ms. Scharf’s claim:

“…on May 22, 1967, the Reverend Howard Moody and twenty one other leading New York City clergy startled the nation when the New York Times ran a front-page story describing the formation of something called the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion. The service would help women find safe abortions in a nation where the procedure was illegal. It quickly grew into a nationwide network of nearly 1,500 ministers and rabbis.”

Such brazen activity puts even more pressure on legitimate, orthodox elders in the Christian and Jewish communities to defend God’s honor by engaging more vigorously in the fight to protect the most vulnerable among us.
