"Emily Giveth, Emily Taketh Away"

You almost certainly have already at least heard of Emily Letts' abortion video. She, and many of her comrades on the left, seem to think that something significant has been accomplished.

In case you're unfamiliar with Emily's story: After engaging in immoral sexual activity, (surprise!) Emily found herself pregnant. Wanting to continue in her self-absorbed lifestyle, she decides to kill her unborn child. Having worked for a year as an abortion counselor at Cherry Hill Women’s Center in New Jersey, the 25 year-old purportedly could not find a single video that detailed a mother's experience in an abortion clinic.

If Emily was a bit more patient, perhaps she could have caught the upcoming film on Kermit Gosnell. I mean, if she really wants to show the world what really goes on (warning: graphic) in an abortion clinic, then let's get the complete story.

Of course, the left wants no such thing, and all Emily's video really does is to continue to perpetuate the lie that killing a child in the womb is a clean simple out-patient medical procedure like most any other. There is nothing surprising, revealing, or ground-breaking about this three minute display of extreme human selfishness. Liberals have been peddling such deceit for decades now. It's one of the biggest reasons over 50 million such procedures have occurred since Roe v. Wade.

As Al Mohler rightly concludes, what this video actually does is cast more light onto the worldview by which the vast majority of today's liberals live their lives.

Mohler writes:

"She grants to herself the power to give life; to 'make a life'” What she gives, she can destroy. Emily giveth, and Emily taketh away.

"And she is also the creator of her own moral system of value and the judge of her own solitary moral universe — 'I knew what I was going to do was right, ’cause it was right for me and no one else. No one else matters."

Exactly. When "no one else matters," when you make yourself, as Satan tells us in the Garden of Eden, "like God," it makes it so much easier to rationalize--even celebrate--your sin. "Fools mock at sin," reads Proverbs 14:9. It seems that the left videos it for millions to see.
