Worth the read, and worth a re-examination of policies that have created this mess.
This needs more attention.
Remembering the 55,000,000 children who have been legally killed in the 41 years abortion has been legal in this country. Pray for the mothers who thought this was their only option, the mothers who chose this freely, the mothers who were coerced. The fathers who pressed for this with words or by absence, the fathers who didn’t want the abortion but had no say, the fathers who don’t even know they ever had a child. The parents who thought they were sparing their child, the children and now-grown adults who are missing siblings, the world who is missing friends. The grandparents who pressed for the abortion to be spared embarrassment, the grandparents who are mourning their grandchildren, the beautiful faces the world will never see. We entrust these children to God. For these and all cases, we beg for forgiveness; His mercy overflows.
For those who do not yet recognize the gravity of what they’ve done, for those who have hardened their hearts to the truth of the life they carried, for those who think they must support abortion because they had one, for those who support abortion because they know someone who did, for those who think this is what progress means, may the truth pierce the lies built around their heart. God’s mercy is never ending.
We as a people have borne this burden of legal atrocity far too long. Far, far too long. May we as a nation not be judged by what we deserve.
Interested to see how this plays out.
Instead of calling people with Down Syndrome “baboons,” I suggest doctors give the news of a Down Syndrome diagnosis with a smile saying, “There will be challenges but your child is nearly guaranteed to be a happy adult!”
And really that is the price of embracing the culture of death, of using death as a “medical treatment” – it is quite literally the elimination of happiness.
