Conservative Christian writer, columnist, debater and professor Mike S. Adams recently called attention to a disturbing phenomenon surrounding the abortion debate.
“Yesterday afternoon, I walked by a sociology class and heard a professor excoriating pro-lifers for allegedly not caring about the fetus after birth,” the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, professor posted on Facebook Friday. “Earlier this morning, I heard two female students arguing with two male students over abortion. (Hats off to the two guys, by the way). One co-ed said she would abort if she were to become pregnant – and that she would do so for economic reasons. The other co-ed claimed that the ‘vast majority’ of women who become pregnant are not able to afford to carry the baby to term.”
While instances like those described above are common enough, Adams noted that the real problem he’s observed is a general passivity many pro-lifers have adopted in the face of radical pro-abortion advocates. This, he argued, is immoral and needs to end immediately.
“People, we are drowning in a culture of death,” he wrote. “Let me remind you of your absolute moral obligation to drop whatever you are doing when you either a) hear pro-choicers attacking pro-lifers or, b) otherwise hear them justifying the murder of innocent human beings.”
Adams, who has a column for the Daily Wire, vowed to write a piece condemning the professor he witnessed “viciously attacking people in our movement.” But he noted that it’s not just people in a position of influence who should be fighting the daily battle for life in this country. It takes an army.
“I expect you all to also commit to responding to these attacks whenever you hear them,” he wrote. “This is especially true if you are a pro-life professor, student, or staffer at a secular university.”
“In a nutshell, we are in a war,” Adams concluded. “Stop being passive. Fight until you die so that others who cannot defend themselves will live.”
The so-called culture of death is growing more and more brazen every day, with “moderate” politicians defending radical pro-abortion legislation and celebrities wielding their power and influence to silence their pro-life enemies.
In response to Adams’s post, NC Values Executive Director Tami L. Fitzgerald cited an example of the extreme anti-life culture in the professor’s home state of North Carolina.
“This the culture of death that professor was defending,” commented Fitzgerald, who posted a link to a recent report about a Charlotte abortionist who shouted at pro-lifers gathered outside his clinic.
“Rape them and bring them here! Rape them and bring them here!” Dr. Ron Virmani can be heard shouting in the filmed exchange. According to NC Values, Virmani has a troubling history of making racist comments and abusing patients.
The pro-life organization noted that the video of Virmani was taken days before North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would hold people like Virmani accountable for the treatment of patients and infants born alive after botched procedures.
In a modern culture that praises a woman’s ability to end the life of her child up until (and sometimes after) birth, Adams’s call to courageously defend innocent life — even at the expense of our own — must be heeded with great passion. Christ sacrificed Himself to save sinners like us, so how much more should we be willing to lay down our comfort, social standing and yes, our lives, to save the holy innocents threatened by abortion?
