Conservative Christian actor Kevin Sorbo is used to making waves for his unpopular views in Hollywood. Recently, he spoke out against abortion and Planned Parenthood.
According to LifeNews.com, Sorbo, along with his wife, Sam, wrote an op-ed published by CNSNews.com. in which he tells the true story of a woman who planned to have an abortion, but through the counsel of a friend, decided to keep her baby.
“Secular humanists have made the word abortion sound like a woman’s right, synonymous with health care, female empowerment, standing for women’s issues, a choice, a solution; anything but the truth,” Sorbo writes.
“The truth is, however, abortion is the termination of life,” he continued. “It is just a euphemism for murder because the only reason to get an abortion is to avoid the potential of birth – a human birth.”
Sorbo also compared the difference in attitude organizations like Planned Parenthood have toward human life versus, say, the preservation of sea turtle eggs.
“In some cases, disturbing the nest of a sea turtle and stealing its eggs is a crime punishable by years in prison and tremendous fines, but we have an entire industry in this nation devoted to the murder of unborn human beings.”
Wrapping up his editorial, Sorbo does not mince words:
“Barely a century after our grave and costly war against slavery, against depriving some human beings of their dignity and based solely on their skin color, we codified into law the right of the citizen to kill her progeny, based solely on its size and location, while unwittingly depriving herself of love that is pure and enduring. This is the definition of evil, pure and simple.”
