What in the world are we going to do about abortion?
Do you realize that an entire generation has passed since the legalization of abortion? The Bible measures a generation as 40 years. Abortion has been legal for 42 years. Every 20 seconds a baby is sacrificed on the altar of abortion. Do the math! That is over 50 million babies!
Millions of women are the second victims of abortion. Some were pressured by a boyfriend, husband or parent. Others made their decision based on lies they were told by “medical professionals.” I will never forget the answer one OB Doctor who “committed” abortions gave a pro-life OB Doctor when asked, “What are you going to tell your children when they ask you why you do abortions?” The doctor who performed abortions sent his children to the same Christian school where the pro-life doctor sent his children. The abortionist’s response was, “I will tell them, you like to wear designer jeans, don’t you?” REALLY?
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the immensity of the evil. When I do, I pray. I find one of our babies and lay my hand upon him or her and whisper, “One child at a time, Lord, saved from abortion. One child at a time saved to fulfill Your purpose for their life.” One mom at a time to learn the truth that she is loved by her heavenly Father more than she could ever imagine…even if no earthly father gave her the time of day, even if the father of her baby already has a new girlfriend.
This is the work at hand. It takes on the characteristics of getting the vans repaired, replacing a worn out washing machine, driving a girl from office to office so she can smile and shake hands when dropping off her resume. It means introducing a young mom to an exercise regime, and making it fun, so she can be healthy. It sometimes looks like teaching a 17 year old multiplication tables or spending the night at the hospital with a scared teenager whose baby is sick. It looks like manning the crisis hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to take that one desperate 2:00 A.M. call from a teen whose pregnancy test came out positive.
