Today that same man is trying in every way he can to stop the killing of our precious unborn. He is singing an entirely different tune, and this time, he doesen't even have to be particularly loud about it.
Compare that scene to America — we’ve had 30 years of legal abortion. The aborted babies number 40 million plus or 4,000 daily — one every 20 minutes. (Time/Date Stamp: August 29, 2006.)
It’s as if we have declared war on the unborn. Folks want to harvest stem cells from the embryo which destroys life — even though the adult cells have a much better record of helping people. Now we’re told we can get the morning after pill without a prescription.
I suggest we pray in earnest for America — God has promised that he answers prayers of his people and his children.
Then we register to vote, contact elected officials by phone, e-mail and post office. Before you vote, find out what the people running stand for.
A personal note, in 2004, I was somewhat involved in helping to unseat a senator of 26 years — the newcomer won.
I admit I did more praying for the new senator than I did writing checks — this was in the state of South Dakota.
Will we try to stop the killing of the preborn? Will we do what we can or will we just sing louder? May God have mercy on us all!
