Anti-Abortion Protest in Jackson, Wyoming



I have some friends who are protesting against an abortion clinic in Jackson, Wyoming.  Jackson is the liberal, enviro-pagan capital of Wyoming.

A friend of mine recently wrote on Facebook:

"Jackson! Christians! I just thought you should know that at Town Council meeting tonight, they would not allow a table to hand out bibles and tracts at Elk Fest! Bibles and Tracts should be always allowed! We should not take this lightly! The Gospel is rejected. I believe it is made possible because we are not standing together! Do you care? I hope we realize that we are loosing ground and need to stand firm!"

Goodbye, Las Vegas
By Tim Shey

“Unreal City,
Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
I had not thought death had undone so many.”

“He who was living is now dead
We who were living are now dying”

“Falling towers
Jerusalem Athens Alexandria
Vienna London
Unreal”

--T.S. Eliot
“The Waste Land”

Desert jackals
Run to their destruction
Hollow eyes see nothing
Behind shades of glass
Painted Jezebel faces
Unrecognized by man
Mourning becomes electric
As piercing city lights
Rape the virgin night

This place never sleeps
And never awakes from death
Black Jack table bait
Roll-the-dice breath
Throw your money down
This is casino heaven
Idolatry never felt so good

This harlot language doesn’t speak
Straw fires always burn fast
I see the Prophet Jeremiah weeping
Over a people brought down to bankruptcy
By a Queen, a King and three Aces

A hitchhiker wanders hardened streets
With his burden on his back
This is the heart of darkness
Lifeless buildings built with foolish gold

I see Sodom burning
And bodies turned to ash
They were very fluent
In arrogance, pride, adultery
And enviropaganspeak

You have sold your soul to Satan
Do you remember Noah’s Flood?
The City of David was sacked by Romans
And America by Marxist-Darwin thugs

The Stranger leaves the graveyard
And the stench of Vegas Past
And hitches a ride to Barstow
Across the relentless Mohave
On Interstate Fifteen

  2. Last year I met some of the anti-abortion protesters in Jackson. They were having supper at my friends' place. These people have been all over the United States protesting against abortion clinics in a number of cities. They said that they received more hate speech in Jackson than in any other place in the country.

  3. You had the protestors and the Civility, Compasionate and Love group in town. It was to my understanding that the CC & L group was composed of pro-choice and pro-life activists that felt abortion was not a topic for debate. It was explained to me that it was a personal matter between the parent and child concerning the ethics and morals behind the basis and or personal reason for the abortion and that the protestors method of protesting was not within the realm of Civility, Compassion, and Love. The protestors were quite graphic and possibly real in their message. Yet, the question is do they have the right to free speech in telling it the way they see the consequences of some methods. Abortion is more than just an option and maybe that is the message the protestors are trying to convey.

  4. When I think on the culture of death (the abortion clinic) in Jackson, Wyoming, these Scriptures come to mind:

    Jeremiah 25: 4-11:

    "And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words, Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years."

    Ezekiel 22: 1-12:

    "Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations. Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself. Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries. Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which art infamous and much vexed. Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in thee to their power to shed blood. In thee have they set light by father and mother: in the midst of thee have they dealt by oppression with the stranger: in thee have they vexed the fatherless and the widow. Thou hast despised mine holy things, and hast profaned my sabbaths. In thee are men that carry tales to shed blood: and in thee they eat upon the mountains: in the midst of thee they commit lewdness. In thee have they discovered their fathers’ nakedness: in thee have they humbled her that was set apart for pollution. And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour’s wife; and another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath humbled his sister, his father’s daughter. In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD."

    Ezekiel 22: 12: "In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood."
