The Tragedy of Abortion

“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you were born I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’”
— Jeremiah 1:4-5

Since January 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court gave us abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy, America has taken the lives of more than 57 million unborn babies. This is a horrible crime for which we will give an account.

At one time, I was talking with a gentleman who was involved in a suit with an abortion clinic. I suppose we really shouldn’t use the term “abortion clinic” because a clinic is someplace you go to get well. Some have used the phrase “abortion chamber.” They talk about their hygiene; they talk about the safety factor. Well, I would remind everyone that at least 50 percent of all the people that enter those institutions come out dead. I refer of course to the babies.

This gentleman was talking to the man who sued him and his organization to get them to stop picketing the abortion chamber, and this young man in our church said that he would be glad to stop picketing them if he would just stop killing babies. No way.

Now we have all heard that they are “pro-choice.” But there’s only one choice provided in such a place—abortion.

The man in our church said that he would stop picketing the abortion center if they would simply provide a table inside the center where he might present the other choice so that people will have a true choice they can make. Of course, he was denied. There is no choice; abortion is murder for money, nothing else. Pray to end abortion.

Dear Lord, thank You for the gift of life. We confess that the land is stained with the blood of the unborn. Forgive us for not doing more to stop this egregious evil in our time. Lord of life, give us the strength to continue working on behalf of life…
