America's Great Sin...In its 41st year

Steven LeBlanc

The 41st Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision is this week. In a 7-2 ruling on January 22, 1973, the justices declared laws prohibiting abortion violated a woman’s constitutional right to privacy. They also asserted states could regulate abortion procedures in the interest of a woman’s health.

Since that dark day in 1973, there have been an estimated: 57 million abortions in the United States. Steven Ertelt of LifeNews.com informs us of the death toll. “If you run the math on those terrible figures, the numbers are absolutely chilling”:

1.382 million abortions every year
115,167 abortions every month
26,577 abortions every week
3,786 abortions every day
157 abortions every hour
2.6 abortions every minute

The Bible regards the unborn as having personality. In Galatians, Paul speaks of himself as a person while still in his mother’s womb, (compare Jeremiah 1:5 for the same accent)

The Gospel of Luke ascribes personality to the fetus within Elizabeth:

“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit… As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy” (1:41, 44).

Also, read Exodus 23:7: “Have nothing to do with a false charge, and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.”

Will not God punish our “Christian” nation for such brutality—a people who have such a callous attitude toward the unborn child!
