It’s absolutely appalling to see the lengths many states and politicians are taking to give tacit approval for the murder of a pre-born child in the womb. Since the Dobbs decision was leaked, the violence, hate, destruction, firebombs, threats, and extreme vandalism have been unleashed on pro-life agencies and churches.  Meanwhile, rather than going after those who link themselves to Jane’s Revenge, the Justice Department is prosecuting pro-lifers.  Indeed the violence continues.  Just a weekend ago, another pro-life center was hit and additional states have passed legislation allowing the killing of babies up until the point of birth.  One state has proposed legislation to make abortion a religious right. Pharmacies are engaging in the culture war pertaining to the abortion pill, and last week, a guest on a national TV program appeared to call for the murder of pro-life legislators.  

Returning to Crosstalk with this pro-life update was Pastor Jim Harden.  Pastor Harden is president and CEO of CompassCare Pregnancy Services in New York.  Jim pioneered the first measurable and repeatable medical model in the pregnancy center movement, helping hundreds of centers nationwide become more effective at reaching more women and saving more babies from abortion.  He’s written extensively on medical ethics, executive leadership, and pro-life strategy.

Last weekend, a pro-life pregnancy center in Minneapolis was hit with smashed windows and graffiti messages from the terrorist group, Jane’s Revenge.  According to Pastor Harden, on Saturday morning, Antifa members showed up in their black masks to protest outside the building.

He sees this kind of behavior as a pattern where Antifa officially recruits disaffected left wing groups including those who are transgender, pro-abortion activists, environmental activists, etc.  These individuals are united around a common cause (anti-capitalism/anti-Christian, etc.)  with the goal of undermining the global, civilized order, which they believe is sustained by the economy.  This is why they go after pro-life pregnancy centers.  To them, pro-life pregnancy centers are enslaving entities that represent both capitalism and Christianity.  

Jim noted that Attorney General Merrick Garland was called to Capitol Hill to testify about their targeting of pro-life vs. those causing such violence at pro-life centers.  Garland communicated that the individuals committing the violence are hard to catch because they’re doing such deeds at night!

Pastor Harden noted how horrifying it is that federal law enforcement can be co-opted by a political agenda and that Merrick Garland perjured himself.  He did so not only in saying that the perpetrators can’t be captured because they’re committing their violence at night, but because he believes the FBI and DOJ are being fair and applying the law equally when they’re not.  They’re treating the law like a legal “buffet” to enforce it against people they don’t like. 

Who’s de-prioritizing these investigations?  Pastor Harden pointed to Kristen Clarke, who’s responsible for prosecuting civil rights violations at the Department of Justice.  He believes Merrick Garland is covering for her as she is, by her own admission, opposed to anything pro-life, a supporter of Antifa/BLM, and defunding the police. 

There’s much more to learn.  For example:

  • Did Jane Fonda really call for pro-life legislators to be murdered on the TV show, “The View”?
  • Last Wednesday there was a group of Senate Democrats that reintroduced legislation that would force every state to legalize the killing of pre-born babies up to birth for any reason whatsoever.
  • What about the lawsuit that states the FDA lacked authority to approve an abortion pill?
  • Why does Pastor Harden believe Attorney General Merrick Garland is encouraging the illicit sale and trafficking of abortion drugs? 

Crosstalk listeners brought their views in response to this issue as well.
