(Psa 139:15) My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Each year 1.5 million babies are aborted per year in America. That’s about 4,000 babies per day since 1973. If you do the math, it will grieve your heart. And you know what gets me? How the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is about the same time we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Now that’s hypocritical to me. You celebrate civil rights for each American citizen and then take away that fundamental right from the unborn who cannot speak for themselves. Double standard! Hello . . . anybody inside that brain??
It truly is unreasonable how America views abortion. People say it’s just a fetus and not a real person. Again, reasoning breaks down here. You mean to tell me that if you want the child, then it’s a person? And if you made a boo-boo and got pregnant and you weren’t ready for that, then it’s now just tissue, instead of Timmy or Tina? Doesn’t make sense to me. But then I think of how the Bible says that there would be that reprobate mind in people who don’t know the Lord and they would throw reasoning to the wind for their own convenience and immoral choices (Rom 1:28).
I think the basic argument over abortion is this: When does life begin? At conception? At birth? Somewhere in-between? Listen to what the Bible teaches:
· (Psa 139:13-16) For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. 1 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
· (Psa 51:5) Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
Look at these scriptures and see God’s intimate knowledge and observation of a child in the womb. Then look at how David said that the human nature of his parents was passed down to him at conception.
An American law doesn’t mean that it is right! We must compare that law to the law of God. God will require of this generation the blood of the unborn: (Gen 4:10) And He said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground. When the prophets walked the land of Israel they cried out against the iniquities of the land very specifically and forcefully. What would a Jeremiah say today as he walked the streets of a major American city? The topic of abortion would no doubt be on his lips along with many other injustices in the land.
Christian, say a prayer for our country and beg God’s forgiveness and mercy. Let’s cry out to God for the little babies that are whisked away in a mute and sterile and legal holocaust each and every day. How can we be patriotic and say “God bless America” when the silent screams of these children are rising to God every moment of every day in this land of freedom? May God hear our prayer and may the unborn be granted the right to see the light of day. And may the born (you and I) see the glory of God covering our nation once again.
