Actress Martha Plimpton Boasts About Her First Abortion

Plimpton, known for her roles in the films “Small Town Murder Songs,” “Parenthood” and “The Goonies,” as well as sitcoms “The Real O’Neals” and “Raising Hope,” made her remarks in June while interviewing abortionist Willie Parker—a professing Christian—at the event.

SEATTLE, Wash. — Actress Martha Plimpton was met with cheers and applause as she rejoiced at a “shoutyourabortion” event that she had her first abortion in Seattle and joked that it was her “best one.”

Plimpton, known for her roles in the films “Small Town Murder Songs,” “Parenthood” and “The Goonies,” as well as sitcoms “The Real O’Neals” and “Raising Hope,” made her remarks in June while interviewing abortionist Willie Parker—a professing Christian—at the event. The video has just now been the subject of controversy.

“Seattle has particular significance for me for lots of reasons. I’ve got a lot of family here, some of whom are in the audience tonight. I also had my first abortion at the Seattle Planned Parenthood. Yay!” she exclaimed, raising her arm in the air as if in celebration.

The audience then broke out into cheers and applause.

“Notice I said ‘first.’… I don’t want you guys to feel insecure;

,” she said, evoking laughter. “Heads and tails above the rest. If I could Yelp review it, I totally would. And if that doctor’s here tonight, I don’t remember you at all; I was 19. I was 19, but I thank you nonetheless.”

The video has generated a variety of reactions this week as it has been shared nationwide, with some expressing support for the actress and others finding her remarks deeply disturbing.

“And we should be able to say if our abortion experience was a good one and what made it good—that’s how we create better abortion care,” also remarked Marie Claire contributing editor Jessica Valenti, who also identifies as a feminist.

“Abortion supporters are no longer hiding how abortion kills an innocent life—they’re boasting about it,” lamented Lila Rose of the pro-life group LiveAction. “[Plimpton]’s not remorseful. She isn’t advocating for abortions to be rare—she proudly admits she’s had multiple abortions. This callous boasting is another sad example of the extremism that accompanies abortion.”

“Only a sick person would celebrate the death of a baby,” also commented congressional candidate E. Brian Rose.

Plimpton has been vocal about her abortion support for a number of years, writing in 2015, “Both contraception & abortion are moral acts when decided by the individual. Religious freedom means all are free to make their own decisions.”

“Women matter more than fetuses,” she wrote in 2014.

Plimpton also raised eyebrows when photos emerged last year of the actress wearing a dress that had the word “abortion” written across it with hearts.

As previously reported, in an introductory lecture to his course on obstetrics in 1854, Philadelphia doctor Hugh Lennox Hodge lamented that even the mothers of his day were lacking of natural affection toward their own children and sought out means to kill them.

“They seem not to realize that the being within them is indeed animate, that is, in verity, a human being—body and spirit—that it is of importance, that its value is inestimable, having reference to this world and the next,” he said. “They act with as much indifference as if the living, intelligent, immortal existence lodged within their organs were of no more value than the bread eaten, or the common excretions of the system.”

“We can bear testimony that in some instances, the woman who has been well educated, who occupies high stations in society, whose influence over others is great, and whose character has not been impugned, will deliberately resort to any and every measure which may effectively destroy her unborn offspring,” Hodge sorrowed.“[S]he recklessly and boldly adopts measures, however severe and dangerous, for the accomplishment of her unnatural, her guilty purpose … that she may be delivered of [a child] for which she has no desire, and whose birth and appearance she dreads.”

  • An actress who jokes about murdering babies and the church isn’t boycotting her movies? Oh, I forgot; the abortionist sitting beside her is a “christian”- so does this mean that Christians support murder? Hmm, no wonder so many are turning away from Christianity, they support evil instead of taking a firm stand against it. A house divided will never stand! Church, you have failed again!

Christian Politician Larry Bates Gets 21 Years in Prison for Multimillion-Dollar End Times Coin Scheme

A former Tennessee lawmaker has been sentenced in Memphis to 21 years in prison for running a multimillion-dollar Ponzi coin scheme related to end-of-the-world predictions.

Bates encouraged listeners on his Christian broadcast programs to buy gold and silver coins, which supposedly would give them financial protection against a religious and economic collapse termed “Mystery Babylon,” The Associated Press reported.

Prosecutors said that Bates, a Democrat who served in the Tennessee House from 1971 to 1976, defrauded more than 400 people from 2002 through 2013.

U.S. District Judge Sheryl Lipman has ordered the 73-year-old ex-lawmaker to repay more than $21 million to victims.

Bates’ two sons and daughter-in-law were also convicted back in May at Memphis federal court of wire and mail fraud, and they currently await sentencing.

As The Christian Post reported back in 2015, the FBI and the DOJ accused Bates and his sons of using their broadcast company, Information Radio Network, “as a means of advertising, promoting, and soliciting the sale or purchase of gold and silver to and from individuals nationwide.”

Bates would tell listeners about an upcoming biblical “mystery Babylon” period that would bring economic, political and religious upheaval, convincing them to buy the coins.

The “mystery Babylon” phrase is found in Revelation 17:5, which reads: “And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.'”

“While there are numerous theories as to the identity of mystery Babylon — whether the Bible text is describing a person, place or system, for example — Larry Bates taught his viewers, listeners and readers that it was a ‘demonic blend of the world system of economics, politics and religion,'” CP noted at the time.

Bates apparently convinced victims that gold and silver can offer protection from volatile money markets, because they always will be exchangeable, even in “end times,” he said.

AP reported that a number of the victims were elderly Americans who lost their life savings and the ability to pay for health care.

One of the victims, Judith Ponder, from Kerrville, Texas, said at the trial that she and her mother gave Bates more than $1.8 million dollars.

Christian pastor Charles Grimsley from Mesa, Colorado, said that he and his wife sent Bates more than $200,000 of their retirement money, but got little in return.

Lipman explained that there were customers who received the coins for which they paid for, but positioned that “that is how Ponzi schemes work.”

Bates said in his defense that business competitors and private and government lawyers had conspired against him, claiming that he is “very sad for these clients of ours.”

“God is my defender,” he insisted. “He knows the truth. He will expose the lies.”

Lipman slammed Bates for the way he used his views, stating: “Your use of religion to gain trust is appalling.”

Aspiring pastor kills wife and blames it on cough syrup

A young aspiring pastor has been charged with murdering his Sunday school teacher wife. 28-year-old Matthew Phelps was arrested after he called 911 early in the morning on September 1.

“I think I killed my.. (redacted). I had a dream [breathing heavily] and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” said Phelps.

“I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed. I think I did it. I can’t believe this.”

Phelps said that he had taken cough medicine before going to bed in order to aid his sleep. When he awoken he then noticed he had killed his wife.

“I took Coricidin cough and cold,” Phelps said.  “I know it can make you feel good. So a lot of times I can’t sleep at night. she’s not moving at all [crying] oh my god. She didn’t deserve this. [sobbing uncontrollably]”

Officers arrived at the home just after 1:15 a.m. and discovered 29-year-old Lauren Phelps with multiple stab wounds.

“He qualifies that yes it does look like I did kill her,” said an officer on the scene. “The knife is here – I have blood all over me. However, this medicine made me do it. That’s not an uncommon way for people in his position to respond”

There’s no proof that the medicine caused him to commit the crime and Matthew Phelps is still being held on murder charges.
