While much of Hollywood actively supports the proliferation of abortion services across America, there are a few who continue to assert their staunch opposition to the practice that claims over half a million unborn lives per year. One of these is Christian actor Kevin Sorbo – and he doesn’t hold back when expressing his opinion on the matter.
“Secular humanists have made the word abortion sound like a woman’s right, synonymous with health care, female empowerment, standing for women’s issues, a choice, a solution; anything but the truth,” Sorbo wrote in a recent op-ed at CNS News.
“The truth is, however, abortion is the termination of life. It is just a euphemism for murder because the only reason to get an abortion is to avoid the potential of birth – a human birth.”
Sorbo further explained how abortion is “dressed” up as a women’s issue when in reality most commonly it is the ending of life out of convenience. “It is still a life inside of a woman’s womb, and that life is still extinguished by the brutal procedure of abortion,” Sorbo added.
Sorbo also noted that in some cases, the disturbing of a sea turtle nest or the stealing of eggs is a crime punishable with harsh fines and even a prison sentence, and yet the destruction of human life is legal. “We have an entire industry in this nation devoted to the murder of unborn human beings,” the “God’s Not Dead” star added.
“This is the new civil rights cause for our country. Barely a century after our grave and costly war against slavery, against depriving some human beings of their dignity and based solely on their skin color, we codified into law the right of the citizen to kill her progeny, based solely on its size and location, while unwittingly depriving herself of love that is pure and enduring,” he writes.
Over 58 million abortions have been performed in the US since the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court ruling that repealed the criminalization of abortive procedures and deemed it unconstitutional for the state to enact unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion.
Meanwhile, amongst the overwhelmingly leftist and secular glitz and glamor of the Grammy awards, at least one artist made a truly courageous statement that went against the flow. Joy Villa sported a large white dress with a depiction of an unborn child in the womb, and a handbag that stated: “Choose Life.”
“I’m a pro-life woman,” Villa told Fox News. “This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do. I’m all about life.”
Villa admitted that there are very few conservative celebrities, but insisted that this doesn’t discourage her from passionately sharing her point of view on important issues like abortion.
“There is a lot of hypocrisy we see from celebrities,” she said.
“I’m glad that conservative values are back at the forefront as a pro-life woman.”
“I believe in loving the child and the mother, and I am proudly #ProLife. There is so much pain out there, but I choose to spread love and hope,” she wrote on Instagram. “I hand painted my @pronovias gown with a hand-painted (by me) recreation of my daughter portrait I painted in 2007 at 20 years old 8 months pregnant with my beautiful daughter, whom I adopted out to a wonderful family.”
“I’m incredibly blessed to have given life, and I hope to encourage anyone in a similar situation to choose adoption,” Joy continued.
I feel like an absolute Princess!👸🏽 thank you to my beautiful #Joytribe fans for all the wonderful letters of love and support for my wearing my heart on my dress yet again.
