“You shall not murder.” – Exodus 20:13
Saturday Night Live (SNL) is a weekend show that is known for its comedy and funny skits that are usually based on recent events. However, last weekend’s show was anything but humorous.
Actress Cecile Strong played “Goober the Clown” on the show. Goober the Clown was portrayed as having an abortion at 23 years old. SNL while trying to be funny was clearly attempting to make a statement, and it is “that abortion is a normal and good thing to do.” During the skit Strong states, “I know I wouldn’t be a clown on TV here today if it weren’t for the abortion I had the day before my 23rd birthday.”
The absurd suggestion here is that somehow a mother terminating her child’s life in an abortion procedure will lead to success later in life. The underlying theme of the skit is to attack recent pro-life victories, such as, the Texas Heartbeat Law that prohibits abortion once a heartbeat is detectable in a mother’s womb.
To be straightforward, SNL should be ashamed of its actions regarding this skit. The whole skit portrayed abortion as a “no big deal” action and tried to make abortion humorous. There is absolutely nothing funny about the premeditated killing and ripping apart of innocent and precious human beings in their mothers’ wombs!
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, please reveal to those who promote abortion that they are promoting serious wickedness. Father, we pray that the U.S. Supreme Court will rule to uphold the Texas Heartbeat Law that has recently been challenged. Father, empower the Kentucky Legislature to pass many pro-life laws here in the Commonwealth in this coming up legislative session. Father, Help America to honor life in all ways possible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
