Two background verses for this Crosstalk come from Paul’s warning to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:1-5
‘This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.’
Another one is verse 2 Timothy 3:13
‘But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.’
These verses describe a number of things we see in the news today. For example:
A ‘drag queen’ named Annie Christ is scheduled to present Drag Queen Story Time to children at the Landsdale (Pennsylvania) Public Library on Saturday, February 2.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signed a bill into law that allows abortion on demand up until birth itself. Right on the heels of that signing, assisted suicide proponents are renewing their push to legalize assisted suicide in the State of New York and other states are taking up this measure.
Now in Virginia, a bill was introduced (HB-2491) by Democratic Delegate Kathy Tran that would eliminate restrictions on abortion while permitting them right up to the moment of birth. Jim played audio of Delegate Tran being questioned in a committee meeting by Majority Leader and Committee Chair Todd Gilbert. In a strict party line vote the bill failed in committee.
Rhode Island has a bill also legalizing abortion up to birth. Both H-5127 and H-5125 would eliminate any constitutional restrictions on late-term abortions, methods of abortion, undermine the authority of the State and Department of Health from enacting and adopting constitutional restrictions on the performance of abortions at facilities where they are performed, and require the State to pay for all abortions sought by Medicaid-eligible pregnant women and women covered by the ‘Payer of Last Resort’ program.
In Vermont more than 90 members of the State House are co-sponsoring legislation to codify a fundamental right to have an abortion. It’s meant to insure abortion remains legal regardless of a future Supreme Court decision over Roe v. Wade.
New Mexico moved closer to adopting a radical new law allowing abortions for basically any reason up to birth. They are also advancing a suicide bill (HB-90).
Disney is bringing ‘Magical Pride’, June 1st 2019, to Paris.
A new law protects pregnant females and forbids any procedure that puts the unborn child in danger. A report out of New Jersey indicates that ‘Brianna’ had escaped a truck that was taking her to a place where she and her unborn baby would be killed. She got away, was taken to a place of sanctuary where she would give birth. Mother and child are doing fine. Democratic Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly was so taken with Brianna’s story that he drafted legislation that looks like it’s headed for passage. What’s the problem with this? It would make transporting livestock for slaughter and killing pregnant livestock a 4th degree crime carrying big fines. Yes, Brianna is a cow! She got away from the people who planned to slaughter her and her unborn baby. This shows more concern for the survival of animals than the most innocent of humans.
