Mourning in America
Thirty six years ago today, the Supreme Court of the United States voted 7-2 to legalize the murder of babies in the womb by declaring a (completely invented) Constitutional right to abortion on demand. Since that day, some fifty million--yes, fifty million--abortions have been legally performed in America.
The Centers for Disease Control says heart disease is the number one cause of death in America, killing about 900,000 each year. Estimates on the number of abortions annually vary from 1.1 to 1.5 million. If that range is correct, one out of every three deaths each year (though of course they don't count the murder of the unborn) takes place due to abortion. The most dangerous place to be in America is in a mother's womb.
According to the exits polls, one out of five people who identified themselves as evangelical Christians voted for Barack Obama--the most pro-abortion candidate in history...the man who wouldn't want his daughters "punished with a mistake" if they got pregnant too soon. Every one of those people has blood on his or her hands.
Lincoln said that if God took away all of America's wealth for the sin of slavery all we could say is "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous all together." Enslaving men and women was evil; murder is worse. God hates it, and we have allowed it to continue...even helped it to continue. One day the bill will come due, and we will deserve it.
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19
