Today much is being made about abortion, and rightfully so. In January of 1973 the Supreme Court, with it’s ruling in the Roe v. Wade case, permitted the legal destruction of human life; destruction which more than 57 million human beings have been murdered since 1973.
That is roughly 1/5 of the current population of the United States.
About 25% of pregnancies in the United States end with the termination of human life.
Their hearts will be stopped. Their brains will be removed. Their little bodies will be discarded as if they were yesterday’s leftovers.
Almost six times more human beings have been killed via abortion in the United States than Jews killed during the Holocaust. The latter have a museum. The latter is considered a human rights tragedy.
Apparently not all humans have rights.
These murdered human beings have no means by which they can defend themselves, and yet millions of people in the United States of America want to champion the right to have “choice,” yet the aborted have no say in the matter. This common practice in the United States is nothing short of criminal, and yet there are no trials. There are no defense lawyers assigned to “Baby X.” He/She has no representation.
Where are the courageous voices standing up for the rights of these defenseless human beings? Where are those politicians, specifically the Republicans, who took a stand on the right to life?
There has been some controversy surrounding the GOP and a new abortion law in the last day or two. In short the GOP is divided amongst themselves about whether or not to put forth and vote on a ban on abortion after 20 weeks (Pain Capable Abortion act). After some back and forth, the proposal has been scrapped.
This is pathetic, and it comes across as cowardice. Perhaps we should admit no longer is the GOP a party of moral values.
This is why the church has in the past, and must continue to fight for the rights of the defenseless and unborn. As Christians, we must protect life in the womb — at one time the safest place for a child.
In recent months, many people, particularly the political left, have been chanting #BlackLivesMatter and yet I have seen few apply that to black babies. Those on the left seem to be silent when it comes to speaking out and marching for the lives of unborn black babies… Liberals will go to war for the rights of animal treatment (PETA), and for the quality of the environment, but not for the rights of all human beings…
Where is the outrage? Where are the rallies? Where are the cries against injustice and for the fair treatment of peoples?
Do black lives matter? Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger didn’t think so. Inner-city black women were a primary target group for her abortion services, and yet the political left have no qualm with Planned Parenthood or abortion.
Do black lives matter? Yes, and I’ll go even further and submit that all lives matter.
Black, white, young, old, born and unborn.
All human life matters.
All of them are created in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-27, 2:7).
And not only are all people made in the image of God, God knew everyone before conception as He knitted them together.
Psalm 139:13-16 says,
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
The murder and dismembering of human life is a foul odor in the nostrils of Almighty God for He is the Creator of all human life, and as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have an obligation to speak for those without a voice.
God help us.
