59 Million Murdered and Counting
Tomorrow marks the 44th anniversary of Roe v Wade (and a little known Supreme Court decision decided on the same day Doe v Bolton which in my opinion had a far greater impact than Roe because it broadened the scope of what “endangering a women’s health” meant to include not just physical but emotional as well, making abortion available for any reason). Many are not aware but both Norma McCorvey (Roe) and Sandra Cano (Doe) both came to faith in Jesus Christ afterwards and became advocates and speakers for the Pro-Life movement. Our God is a redeeming God!
Please do not fall for the lie that abortion is just a harmless “surgery”. Abortion is an horrific act of murder that leaves physical, psychological and emotional damage behind in it’s wake. It is time for us as individuals and as a country to allow God to remove the veil of ignorance off of our eyes. If you really want to see what abortion is This is Abortion shows the true hideous nature of abortion.(warning upfront this video is very graphic in nature but we must no longer hide these atrocities pretending abortion is something other than what it really is.)
Since 1973 roughly 59 million children have been murdered in the US, over 1 billion world wide and it, as the abortion clock shows, only grows each day! Compare that number of 59 million murdered in the US to the number of all service men and women killed in all US conflicts since the Revolutionary war and you will see the total number killed in all US wars combined is a little over 1 million. 59 times more children have been murdered since 1973 than all soldiers killed in every US war combined!!! 59 times more!!!
Russell Moore, president of the ERLC, once said how no one is more Pro-Murder going into an abortion clinic and no one is more Pro-Life coming out than Satan”. Going in the devil tells you it’s no big deal, not even a life and things are better off this way. However, when you come out he starts with the accusations and condemnation of the evil you just participated in. I have experienced this first hand. When I was 19 years old I got my girlfriend at the time pregnant. Not wanting the responsibility of being a father I encouraged and paid for her to get an abortion. I have lived with the guilt and shame of that decision for the past 18 years. Trust me when I say the scars of abortion go much deeper than any left behind by the doctor and they are left on the man as well as the woman. My son or my daughter would be 17 years old now. I live with the consequences of my actions each and every day. I am passionate about the truth because I fell for the lie. As a result I have experienced first hand the horrors of abortion, the pain it has left behind in my heart and the nightmares I have are real.
Abortion is murder because God is the author of creation and we do not have the authority to determine whose life is more valuable than others. However, just as God is the author of creation Jesus is the author of salvation and their is forgiveness found at the Cross of Cavalry. If you have had an abortion or encouraged an abortion, if you have worked for an abortion clinic I want you to know God loves you so much He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for you and He tells us in Romans 8:1 there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Praise God for His saving, redeeming, reconciling grace! I am so thankful that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and all sins of those who repent and come to Him in faith. You no longer have to carry the burden of the past you can lay it down at the Cross of Jesus Christ. He welcomes all who come to Him.
We are in a fight church and the battleground has changed. The fight against those in the Pro-Murder movement is no longer even about whether or not it is a life in the mothers womb. Science has proven that it is a life and a life separate from the mother as the childs own DNA completely unique to everyone else who is living, has lived and ever will live is present the moment of conception. By 8 weeks all major organs are developed, the baby has it’s own blood type, has it’s own unique finger print, some evidence shows they are dreaming at this point and they can feel and recoil from pain. The vast majority of abortions take place after 8 weeks. The ship has sailed on whether or not that is a life in the womb. The Pro-Murder advocates just don’t care.
Here are a few excerpts from an article written on January 23, 2013 by a Pro-Murder advocate named Mary Elizabeth Williams titled “So What If Abortion Ends Life?”
“Yet I know throughout my own pregnancies I never waivered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro choice.”
“Here’s the complicated reality in which we live: all life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for Liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman whose body it resides. She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always.”
Dear God may He have mercy on us! Unfortunately this is the mentality of so many in the Pro-Murder movement. The question is no longer “is that a life in the womb” but does that life really matter. All life matters that seems to be something we all agree with except when it comes to life in the womb. What makes the life of that new born baby the second it is delivered and the 7 inches that make up the birth canal that same baby traveled down a magical dividing line of whether it is a human worthy of life or not? You want to see who it is that they say is not a life and what they look like if they survive the attempted murder of their life? I’ll give you a hint they look just like us because they are human. Watch this video to see one such survivor share her story.
“Oh but its a woman’s body so it’s her choice” they say. Well if it was the woman’s body than she would be the dead one after the abortion and on top of that we already have many laws in place saying you can not do whatever you want with your body, unless you are also advocating the legalization of prostitution and support the continued exploitation of women in the sex trade. As I heard Pastor Matt Chandler say in a sermon once “get in a car naked and drive 95 miles an hour in a 45 mile per hour zone and tell the cop who pulls you over it’s your right to do whatever you want with your body and see how that works out for you.” We have all kinds of laws in place telling people what they can and can not do with their body.
“Yeah but it will cause a great burden on the mother and her life”. “These unborn lives cause unnecessary difficulties and inconveniences” they say. “They are a strain on the states finances” and “besides those in the womb don’t have the mental capacity to know their rights”. So by that logic I guess we should kill all those with mental disabilities or how about the elderly lets just kill them too while were at it. Where does it stop? Who says you have the right to determine who lives and who dies?
Listen abortion is murder yes no doubt but at the heart of abortion is what it really is – child sacrifice. The Israelites got caught up in this in various times of their existence and they would sacrifice their babies and children to the false god Molech. They would count their lives more valuable than the lives of their babies and children and so they would kill them as a sacrifice so they could be “blessed” and they could have a “better life”. Make no mistake about it that is what is transpiring in our country and all around the world today. People see the baby as a hindrance to them living their lives how they want so they willingly murder their child so their life can be “better”. Modern day child sacrifice is alive and well in this country and in this world, God help us.
What Rabbis have recorded about the ancient practice of child sacrifice is that a large bronze statue would be made in the form of a human with an ox head. This statue was hollow and they would place babies or children either one by one or in multiple groups inside the statue and heat the bronze statue up from the bottom burning and eventually incinerating the babies and children inside. While this was taking place people would beat drums loudly to drown out the cries of the children inside. We can as a church and followers of Christ no longer just beat our drums in order to not have to deal with the cries of those being slaughtered around us. This powerful video shows us what it looks like when we do just that and turn a blinds eye to the atrocities happening all around us. If you say you are for human rights but not for the rights of every human to have the chance at life then you are a hypocrite and a liar. “This is a debate about our understanding of human dignity, what it means to be a member of the human family, even though tiny, powerless and unwanted” – Henry Hyde
When your children and grandchildren ask you about the millions upon millions of innocent lives that have been murdered what will you say you did about it? Here are some things you can do now, serve at a Pregnancy Resource Center with your time or by donating money, write your state representatives, congressmen, senators, write the President of the United States. Get involved in the foster care system by opening your home to a foster child or adopting. Serve at a local benevolence ministry or program that helps fight the cycle of poverty. We can not truly be Pro-Life if we are not anti-poverty as well. You can join my wife and I and thousands of others who will be marching in Washington D.C. next week on the 27th in the March For Life. The greatest thing you can do is pray – pray that God would remove the veil of ignorance off the eyes of those who would have us call murder a choice.
Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. – Proverbs 31:8
