Need a Tax Break? Murder Your Child

That’s what the IRS says, apparently.

In a report yesterday from Life Site News (complete with IRS links, for those concerned about “bias”), IRS publication 502 states that “legal abortion” can be cited as a medical expense for 2014.

I forgot, how again is murdering another person part of “medicine”? Isn’t that the exact opposite of the Hippocratic Oath? Or has that oath been changed to suit our murderous desires?

Beyond this madness of calling baby dismemberment “medicine,” there is the matter that, according to IRS Publication 501, the federal government does not allow the same tax credit for a stillborn child. Translation: if your child dies on his own, it’s not medicine; if you kill him, it is.

This is the most backward understanding of “medicine” imaginable.

No wonder that the federal government gives the abortion industry over $520 million a year – it is incentivizing the war on preborn children for taxpayers, too.


Psalm 94: Treated as Criminal for Criminals Like Me

Psalm 94 is a prayer for God to judge the wicked. It closes with this verse:

He will bring back on them their iniquity
and wipe them out for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will wipe them out.

For those of us who love justice, what a hope this is! God will not finally seem unjust – He will deliver violent evildoers to a violent, righteous end.

But, what about those of us who know that we are the violent, the wicked, the evil – how will we be saved from this wrath?

Psalm 94 teaches that our sins, too, deserve a righteous payback. We are the ones who have killed the widow, the sojourner, and the fatherless with our evil attitudes toward them. We are the ones who deserve to be wiped out. We are the criminals.

Yet Jesus Christ was treated as a criminal for criminals like us. It is for this reason that Luke 23:32 tells us that, “Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him.” God wants us to know that Jesus became a criminal for criminals like me:

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree,’ ” (Galatians 3:14).

Children Are a Blessing, Not a Curse

In my experience, people that support (or even permit – permitting is supporting here) the willy-nilly slaughter of children we call “abortion” tend to place children squarely into one category, call it what you will:

  • burden
  • liability
  • trouble
  • problem
  • curse

Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, dresses up their child-cursing like this:

Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.

Let us note:

  • Unwanted children don’t deserve the same “fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility.”
  • “Fertility” is here a euphemism for “bearing children.”
  • “Reproductive self-determination” is a euphemism for killing the unborn.
  • “Right to privacy” means that cursed children can be killed quietly.
  • Their logic says that unwanted children would harm the “quality of life and strong family relationships.”

In other words, Planned Parenthood believes that unwanted children are a curse because their parents don’t want them. So they help false-parents kill them. PP, you see, is just following their leader.

Contra self-serving ideologies, the Bible gives a different, happier picture of children. According to Psalm 127, for instance, they’re a blessing:

Children are a blessing from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them!

They’re not a burden; they’re a boon. They’re not a liability; they’re a lovability. They’re not trouble; they’re joy. They’re not a curse; they’re a blessing.
