LOS ANGELES — In a video posted online on Wednesday, PragerU’s Will Witt took to Echo Park in Los Angeles to ask the public to sign a petition to protect unborn eagles, followed by another petition seeking the protection of unborn humans. While potential signees were eager to support the eagle petition, they immediately refused to sign the petition to stop the killing of babies.
“We have a petition to stop the killing of eagles, like eagle eggs. People disturb them or destroy them,” Witt told those he stopped on the street. “These eagles have rights, you know. We don’t think they should be harmed. There should be harsher penalties for those kinds of things.”
Receiving unflinching agreement, the footage then shows several happily signing the petition, making remarks such as “Eagles are people too” and “I hope you save the eagles.” Destruction of eagle eggs is already illegal under federal law.
Before Witt moved on, he then advised that he had another petition — one that seeks to stop the killing of human babies. At first, some were taken aback at the terrible thought, but once they realized Witt meant abortion, they quickly changed their mind.
“Wait, I don’t agree with that,” one woman stated who had just signed the eagle egg petition. “I’m pro-abortion. Sorry.”
“I don’t agree. I fully support abortion,” another remarked.
“Why do you not support the killing of unborn eagles but the killing of unborn children?” Witt inquired.
“I think it’s the mother’s decision,” one woman replied.
“I think anyone can make their own decision about their body,” another asserted who had just signed the eagle egg petition. “Babies are gross. … You know what it does to your body? You’re not a woman, so you have no idea.”
“If I want to have a baby in 10 years when I actually like ‘fall in love’ or whatever, maybe yes, I would want one baby, but I would never have more than one because I feel that’s [expletive],” she later remarked.
When Witt asked if it is because of climate change, she replied in the affirmative.
“Yeah, we’re all going to [expletive] die,” she opined.
One woman said that the difference between unborn eagles and preborn humans is the presence of a conscience and the issue of rape.
“I think rape isn’t considered when you’re talking [about abortion],” she remarked. “Eagles aren’t raped.”
When asked if eagles have consciences, the woman replied, “I don’t know. I’ve never talked to an eagle. I don’t think eagles have a lot of opinions.”
As previously reported, in early America, Christians were staunchly against abortion, seeing the shedding of innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16-17) and the discontinuance of a life created and given by God as murder.
In his 1869 sermon entitled “Ante-Natal Infanticide,” E. Frank Howe, the pastor of the Congregational Church of Terre Haute, Indiana, said, “[I]t makes no matter that the victim cannot stretch out its hands in defense. … It matters not that it … can utter no cry of pain or reproach. The sacred gift of human life is taken — is deliberately taken, and this constitutes the crime, and that crime is murder.”
He lamented that “men and women place their own ease and pleasure above God’s law” and that “public opinion is so corrupted there is no voice of reproach,” forthrightly declaring, “Put what face upon it the community will, disguise it under whatever name you please, you can make no more or less of it than simple murder.”
Ecclesiastes 11:5 states, “As thou knowest not what is the way of the Spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child, even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.”
