It has now been 40 years since Roe v. Wade. That’s a big number. We hear big numbers of dead like all those children in Connecticut, or Hurricane Sandy, or staggering events like 9/11, the 2004 tsunami, or the earthquake in Haiti a couple of years ago. 200,000 dead sounds like a lot and it is a lot. These are big numbers, and most of them are little ones, and God loves them and should we.
But here’s another number: 50 million. That’s approximately how many have died in America in the holocaust of the ages since 1973 when the Supreme Court made the decision to make abortion legal, placing our official stamp of approval as a nation upon the death of the innocent. That’s a really big number, and they are ALL little ones!
And just as surely as those precious little ones over the last 40 years awoke in heaven with Jesus, may the babies yet to come this year and in future years awake to the life here on earth God intended for them from the beginning of their life, which He placed in them at their conception! And much like Jesus led captivity captive and on the 3rd day burst out of the belly of the Earth, let us once again make a mother’s belly be a safe place where life thrives, and where temporary captivity gives way to a glorious appearing of another of God’s miracles!
This is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. I’m here to say that Haitian life is of immeasurable value to God, and should be to us as well. But as great as that tragedy is, the greatest one is right under our noses in our homeland, and is approved by the law of the land.
We need to pray. Our prayers are more powerful than politicians and judges. Just look at what happened in Massachusetts this week and tell me how that could happen apart from prayer! This present health bill if passed would kill more babies than ever before...so it must die as well!
O Lord we pray that this year the grave would be swallowed up in victory, and death would lose its sting!
In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
We’re talking about babies w/ souls since the moment of conception…but more than that, babies who have developed physically, w/ beating hearts, digesting stomachs, open eyes, hearing ears…babies which since the advent of ultrasounds have been seen recoiling in pain, desperately trying to escape their killers! And if the way that the coroner determines a person is completely dead is by the absence of brain waves, shouldn’t the presence of brain waves prove life!?
In the news Thursday...
A Massachusetts woman charged in the deaths of her 9-year-old daughter and unborn son has been arraigned on murder and manslaughter charges. Authorities say Fang Chi-Xue of Quincy fatally stabbed her 9-year-old daughter in April and stabbed herself in the abdomen, killing her unborn baby.
Really? A murder charge for the child AND the "fetus"? Why should she be tried and not all the others who kill their babies?
