Today, January 22nd, is the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling, known as “Roe v. Wade.” The numbers of children killed at the hands of abortion practitioners is staggering when you take the time to really contemplate it. 46,000,000 since 1973! More than double the current population of the state of Texas. And that figure is only for the United States. Millions of unborn children are killed in other countries around the world. The figures are probably inestimable.
The following video is graphic! It reveals the side of abortion that those in our culture who are more highly “evolved” and tout a “woman’s right to choose” would surely like to dismiss. For if they are indifferent to these images, they are truly more evil than can be imagined. For each Supreme Court-granted “right” that is exercised, a God-given life is extinguished.
Another warning…the image you see now, is representative of what is shown in this video entitled “This is Abortion”
The only consolation we have, is that each of these millions of souls are in the hands of a merciful and sovereign God. But what to do about those who survived the abortion…the women who were present at the time that a life was terminated and the men who knowingly or unknowingly had a son or daughter taken from them in the “exercise of a right”? The most obvious is prayer for those who remain unrepentant about this tragedy, that they might see their sin and seek God’s forgiveness. For those who have already repented, we should pray for the continued healing of this self-inflicted wound. For those who are contemplating abortion, that they would reconsider, choose life and avoid the first-hand experience revealed in the images of this video.
