The gentleman physician who stands by, his stethoscope dangling at the collar of his white lab coat, got his worldview from the public school system from which you and your dad graduated.
“It’s not a baby, yet; you’re not that far along in the pregnancy for it to be a baby,” he says, reassuringly, as white people do to an inferior.
Doc’s view of his calling — destroying unborn boys and girls in an act applauded by mascara-smeared 50-somethings in the New England political establishment and their cuckolded husbands — flows from what he was taught in his BSCS textbook in biology classes in the 1980s. Starting in 1963, the federally funded series has promoted the theory of evolution in government-run schools. Their arrival crowned decades of labor by atheists, humanitarians and other activists to “take God out of the schools,” as many Christians describe the transformation, and install materialism in its rightly claimed intellectual throne.†
The abortionist providing you services today has a view of the world shared by the public school with its red brick facade, grand entrance and wind-clanging flagpole in the front yard.

The man and the corporation he serves are agents of the powerful concept prescribed in the BSCS textbook. Now that you’ve made that call to the friendly nurse at Planned Parenthood in Knoxville and are making your commitment today, consider first the mind blinking behind the abortionist’s blue-green irises — and then the mind that organized your alma mater, its classes, hallways and curriculum.
Smelling slightly of cologne, Doc contemplates you as a member of a race considered unfit by many evolutionists. He finds it impossible to perceive that you are a spiritual being, made in God’s image as a descendant of Adam, our first ancestor who appeared on the earth Oct. 28, 2004 B.C., according to one estimate. * Try as he might, he doesn’t see you as you see yourself.
The operation itself he intends to perform allows him to perceive you as flesh only. There you are, exposed, upturned, close enough to smell, weighty and warm as he gives himself to bend over you for surgery. To proceed, the doctor dehumanizes the owner of this body and anybody who lies within. If the client is a black, he may already have done some of this alienating in his mind, but probably not much — the doc makes much of voting with the party and goes out of his way to express favor of civil rights. Regardless, he turns the infant he is delivering conveniently into a fetus or “fetal tissue” or “the pregnancy.” The abortionist views you, your poppa’s daughter, with serene moral detachment.
From science class to clinic
Who taught the abortionist his materialism? Your public school, as white people intend, teaches every subject through the lens of evolution, the great mothership from which come a spawn of detachable pods drawing away and descending to every town and county for the purpose of colonization. In my hometown Chattanooga, as probably in your hometown, there is no escape from the mandates of BSCS and its copycat editions, even though in our area 61% of poll respondents said they disbelieve in evolution. Even if oversight bodies run by such perky dissenters as Hamilton County school board member Rhonda Thurman, the state-controlled system that oversees them makes the dominant view impossible to avoid. Evolution is a great eye that sees all. Armies march at its behest.
Today the operative theory is called neo-Darwinism. Its origin is with Charles Darwin, who published his initial work, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, in 1859. In this brilliant volume about favored races (note this), he argues that the theories of evolution and survival of the fittest better explain man’s state existence than does the Bible, with its story of the six-day creation and the sudden appearance, from the Word of God, of animals, reproducing after their own kind, and man, made in God’s image in that he has a soul and is separate from other fleshly beings such as mollusks, chimps and cats. The book focuses on the animal kingdom, but Darwin’s religious ideas in the book were obvious to both friend and foe.
Crisis pregnancy and official teachings
I have been thinking lately about crisis pregnancy — and indirectly about yours — in terms of evolution, thanks to a series of lectures by a professor of the University of Georgia specializing in the history of science. ‡ As my car speakers vibrate with his voice in my solitary Chattanooga commutes, I am able to see more clearly how you have come into your perilous situation.
Bear with me as I explain the big picture operating on you in your childbearing crisis, borrowing from Dr. Larson’s lecture notes.
The implications of Darwin’s theory provoked immediate controversy. Although accepting his theory did not preclude belief in God, it did dispense with the need to believe in a supernatural creator of species. *** As extended in Descent of Man , Darwin’s thinking dispensed with God as the creator of humans, love, and consciousness. *** None of Darwin’s arguments proved that evolution actually occurred, but together, they were persuasive for readers already inclined toward naturalism over supernaturalism.
Everyone saw immediately how Origin of the Species defies the creator God whom Christians worship through the person and ministry of our Lord Jesus. “The central issue concerned the origin of man’s mental and moral attributes, not whether his physical body had evolved. Traditional Christianity had ascribed these attributes to a divinely created soul, the existence of which divided humans from other animals.”
According to Dr. Larson, Darwin
asserted that the difference between the mental powers of humans and animals was one of degree rather than of kind. To do so he exaggerated the humanlike qualities of animals such as in intelligence, emotions, and communications. *** Applying materialistic Darwinism to the origins and nature of human beings carried profound significance for Western thought. It ended the perceived divide between humans and the rest of nature enshrined by biblical religion and Aristotelian science.
In other words, Christianity came under a fierce assault from Darwin and his many follows. So powerful was the idea that in the sciences there were finally NO DEFENDERS of creation until the Americans revolted in the beginning of the 20th century.
Social Darwinism’s racist point
The black race has been affected far more by evolution than by slavery, perhaps. “Social Darwinism was invoked to justify Western imperialism, colonialism, militarism, and scientific racism. Racism predated Darwinism, but biological evolution appeared to justify it. *** At the time such views *** led many European-Americans to believe that Indians and Negroes would die out in the United States. *** [Ernst] Haeckel’s social Darwinism contributed to German militarism leading up to the First World War. Germany’s defeat in that war embittered Haeckel and his followers. Convinced of the biological superiority of the German people, some of Haeckel’s followers contributed to the rise of Nazism and its policies of racial purity.”
Darwin’s cousin, Francis Galton, developed the study of unfit vs. fit races, a field for which he coined the “eugenics” in 1883. Eugenics are intended to designate policies and programs to encourage more children from the fit (whites) and fewer from people like you (blacks). Positive eugenics sought upper classes to have more children to avoid “race suicide.” Negative eugenics, Dr. Larson explains, “sought fewer children from the unfit.” Tennessee and every other state adopted laws against the mentally retarded and 60,000 people were sterilized.
Thirty-five American states and many European countries instituted compulsory programs of sexual sterilization for the mentally ill and retarded, habitual criminals, or epileptics. Germany’s program was later extended to include Jews. *** Biologists joined the Nazi party at a higher rate than any other professional group.
I realize that, as far as you are concerned, whether the abortionist wants fewer African Americans in the world is beside the point. All you are thinking about is your crisis and the hateful demands on you.
No, the Bible story is true
God says on Page 1 in the Bible that He made the world. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” And plants and animals He bought forth, “whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” The record of the Word flatly contradicts Charles Darwin.
On the second page of the Bible, this: “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His Own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” God tells your and my forbears to “be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it ***.”
The public school and the abortionist are nudging the minority woman, hoping she will go along quietly, and not notice that the course of the road on which she treads has turned her away from the Celestial City and redirected her back to from where she came, the City of Destruction, as related in the narrative of that best-seller, Pilgrim’s Progress.
You may have done wrong to get pregnant, and if you are one of God’s children He promises to bring you repentance about it. The main thing a Christian will tell you is that God is good and kind. He is patient. If any soul exercises faith in Him today He will supply ample grace to overcome your fears and commit you on a path of life.
