A Day in the Life (Gayle Atteberry, Oregon Right to Life Director)

Last night I returned home from a panel discussion with Planned Parenthood spokeswomen. I told my husband I had just seen the face of Satan and needed a backrub to ease my stress.  Too strong of words? Today my Bible devotion was on 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, “….Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.”

Slick, smooth, polished, professional, put-together, fact-filled, compassionate-sounding, reasonable, understanding, tolerant….oh, they sound so good. They most definitely appear as “angels of light.” But the truth is Planned Parenthood, the abortion-industry’s 1 billion dollar a year giant, is a cunning, deceitful organization, spending all its resources promoting death. And who has been a liar and murderer from the beginning, but Satan himself? While abortions in America have dramatically decreased, PP’s abortions have equally dramatically increased through the same years.

The only way to battle Satan is with the power of God and His Truth. As I spoke the simple truth, I reminded myself that it is only the truth that will set people free from lies and I prayed the listeners would have great discernment as they listened. Some will respond to truth; some will not. It is my job, as well as each pro-lifer, to speak the truth in love. Jesus has disarmed the powers and authorities of evil and given us His own Holy Spirit, who fills us with truth, power and courage to defend His littlest ones.

Oh, and the last part of 2 Corinthians 11:15 says “. . . Their end will be what their actions deserve.”

  2. Dear Gayle,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I've also met with PP personnel in the past and have come away feeling so sad. Some of them really believe they are helping women when, of course, we know they are not!

    We see broken-hearted women everywhere and pro-life organizations, like Abortion Recovery InterNational (ARIN), Ramah International and others (see Pro-Life Websites and Resources), work hard to help them.

    Not to mention the 43+ million babies (half of whom are baby women)who have been sacrificed on the altar of ignorance. Can anyone believe abortion is helping them?
