This is the 47th anniversary of the Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973. This is one of those decisions that has impacted somewhere over 60 million babies in the last 47 years. That number grows by 3000 babies aborted each day in America. This is one of those life decisions that usually negatively impact Moms, Dads, Grand Parent, and many others each day. The scriptures talk about the unborn children.
Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV) 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Each of us have been created inside our mother’s womb. All of us. We are all the same in that respect!
Job 31:15 (NIV) 15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? Wow, what a verse. Those of us who are now living were created just like those who have been aborted!
Luke 1:41 (NIV) 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
The baby leaped in her womb would indicate that the unborn baby could respond to outside stimuli.
This would be either the #1 or #2 leading cause of death in America today depending upon the statistics you are looking at. For every 1000 live births there are 120 abortions. Staggering numbers!
We need to be supporting people and organizations that openly protect the unborn children.
The good news is this: God receives those aborted children immediately into his presence and by his Grace, through the shed blood of Jesus; there is forgiveness for those caught up in this activity.
Continue to pray for the unborn children and their parents.
Blessing to you all.
