I wasn’t even in double digits when they passed a law allowing children to be killed without mercy in the United States of America. Suddenly, there it was on the books – a law most people at the time couldn’t begin to fathom, which is undoubtedly why too many of them didn’t speak up and fight against it.
Common sense told everyone you couldn’t kill your own babies, even if they were still in the womb. It was a no-brainer, a logical conclusion, regardless of the attempts to misplace it as a woman’s choice, and disguise pregnancy as some sort of illness, rather than the result of making love or having sex, which resulted in a child.
I don’t know. I was just a kid. Maybe it was more like Obamacare or something, where people really did fight hard against it, and despite all their efforts to prevent it, abortion on demand became the law of the land here.
Forty years later…talk about all the progress we might have made, had most of those wee ones been allowed to grow and make an impact on our world! It would likely be a very different place, that’s for sure!
Instead, we’ve spent the last 40 years, fighting to undo the wrong – seems so fluffy to phrase it like that…it is an injustice that has been more harmful to our world than any other crime against humanity in history. (Slaves, regardless of their capture and demise, stick together – moral support, hope, survival; Jews during Hitler’s holocaust did the same, working together to protect themselves from the madness.)
Unborn children aren’t so lucky. They have only their mothers to save them, and if their mother is pro-choice, they don’t stand a chance.
I was working at the kitchen table the other day; the t.v. was playing in the background. My ears perked up as I heard the commercial. Roe from Roe v. Wade was speaking out against abortion, saying she made a terrible mistake and wished she could somehow take back her role in legalizing abortion on demand in this country. Too little, too late? Their blood is on her hands too – millions upon millions of babies, sentenced to death because she was young, stupid and confused back then! But there she was, defending our children. Takes guts, and she was tough enough to help push this vile agenda through…stupidity is such a lousy excuse though.
Blame it on the lawyers…one of the weirdest parts about this whole Roe v. Wade case is that Roe (real name, Norma McCorvey), never actually had an abortion. She was pregnant, but you know how court cases can drag on and on. By the time abortion on demand became law, she’d already given birth to her third child.
The lawyers needed a stupid, messed up, young pregnant girl to further their own agendas and win big. So did all the feminists. Roe was being hit up by greedy, selfish parties all around…groups who wanted to celebrate personal victories, without considering the price of winning – in this case millions of lives and a 40 year war against both mother and child, that looks like it might never end.
Please mark January 25, 2013 on your calendars. It’s the Annual March for Life – what I consider a National Day of Mourning. To be true, the government doesn’t see it that way, and the Supreme Court hasn’t reversed its decision on Roe v. Wade. However, the blood of millions of children’s lives cannot and will not be silenced. It is impossible not to hear their cries!
May God bless and help us all,
