March Madness

March madness refers to the annual NCAA college basketball tournament, held mostly throughout the month of March. Men go enjoy the sports action, while I turn our attention to the droves of women on the March. Since President Trump took office, the media headlines have been nothing more than one march after another. Excuse my play on words, but March Madness among women is on the rise in America.

So far, we have witnessed a stampede of irate feminist groups, nasty women with an upfront, in-your-face attitude, as they marched to Washington D.C. with other women, mothers and daughters, and even supportive men. Those who marched to the Capital were estimated to be 500,000, and world-wide they were two million strong. For some the march was an outright, open refusal to accept the voters’ choice for President as they chanted, “Leave us alone,” and “Were not going away.”

Pro-choice women marched defiantly in a protest for their right to kill their own unborn children. Some of those women chose to march outlandishly; they proudly strutted down the streets while wearing visual representations of their private parts––madness! All this drama was an attempt to get their point of view across––women, not government, should have control over their reproductive choices–––their bodies are their own. I am sure they wanted to give a strong slap on the hand to officials responsible for the government overreach.

The same female activists incited another women’s march on the United Nations International Women’s Day on March 8, called “Day without a Woman.” Many women abandoned their work posts to strike and vocalize their support for gender equality, respect for women and a show of women’s power. The march caused havoc, as schools and businesses across the country had to close.

Personally, I too agree, women need to have equal opportunities in voting and the work place, but clearly these women, in trying to get their point across, have stooped to a new level of idiotic vileness. Their mad cattiness in marching with a portrayal of female body parts has done quite the opposite; it has humiliated and degraded women to a greater degree. Instead of respect, I am pretty sure men are laughing at them!

I have listened to some mothers who had joined the women’s march on January 21, 2017; they voiced their fears and genuine concern over their daughters’ futures calling upon the next generation of women to take the banner of women’s rights and speak up! Sadly, how many voices of the next generation have been silenced? How many precious baby girls have had their future snuffed out, their life taken from them, while supposedly safe in their mothers’ wombs? In truth, a generation of children has been wiped out––they no longer exist on earth; their voices have been silenced. They are the unwanted babies, deemed as a mass of cells, hardly human. Yet, celebrity Beyoncé, pregnant with twins, acknowledged to the world, “I have three hearts.” What is the difference here? Beyoncé babies are wanted.

It would be both sobering and troubling to research Margret Sanger and her ideology of ridding the world of human beings who should never have been born. These philosophies have been embraced by Planned Parenthood, who began their first abortive atrocities in Brooklyn and has now, been found guilty of selling aborted babies’ body parts for profit––the truth indeed is hard to swallow.

Truth be said––in this year alone in the United States, over 173,214 babies have already been killed––every second, across the world, another life is taken. It is shocking to watch each second raise the numbers on the abortion clock found on the internet: www.usabortionclock. Here are some of the awful statistics––since1970 Planned Parenthood has aborted 7,669,948 children. Since 1973 in the United States, 17,942,918 black babies have been slaughtered. Ironically, people shout, “Black lives matter!” I agree––but what about these unborn black lives? Since 1980, a staggering 1,447,480,608 babies have died in an abortion industry––an infantile holocaust worldwide.

Therefore, on January 27, 2017, it was refreshing to see Vice President Pence stand and speak with those at the 44th March of Life. This was the first, high-ranking White House official to ever participate in this event. This growing movement, supported by President Trump, is a friendly and needed step in the right direction to save the lives of the unborn––life is winning.

Students for life are also speaking up against abortion. They have gone on a nation-wide tour to many campuses all across America, taking this strong message with them, “We do not need Planned Parenthood.” Thank God we still have the freedom to speak out, as recently, France passed a law that would place on-line, pro-life operators in prison for two years or face a huge fine if they encouraged a woman not to have an abortion––oppressive to say the least!

Regardless of many women’s points of view across the world, I would direct them to the knowledge of their valued status in God’s divine design and plan for their womanhood. Jesus loves women; He created them as man’s helper (Genesis 2). In Christ, a woman is a man’s spiritual equal, his helper and earthly companion (Genesis 2:18; Galatians 3:28). A wife’s worth to her husband is far above rubies (Proverbs 31:10). God’s Word teaches men honor them as the weaker vessel; they are to be loved and cherished (Ephesians 5:25; 1 Peter 3:7). A man should provide for a woman’s needs physically, emotionally and spiritually (Ephesians 5:26; 1 Timothy 5:8). Marriage is scared, a holy union, whereby children become a precious gifts from the Lord (Psalm 127:3-5). Motherhood is a God given, natural blessing.

Feminists may call me crazy, but I like to be handed flowers, and have doors opened for me and I embrace the thought of being loved and cherished. I am secure in who God has called me to be––a woman! I embrace my role, and in Christ, I can be used to a greater extent in this world to make a difference through sharing the Gospel, as I use my gifts and talents He has given me.

Finally, it is my responsibility to reach out in compassion to those sorrowful women who have aborted their children. God can certainly forgive and comfort them; they need only to come to Him in repentance (Isaiah 1:18; 1 John 1:9).
