Let Babies Live!

Wed, Jan. 22, 2014 Posted: 09:13 PM


Today, hundreds of thousands braved piercingly frigid temperatures in order to stand up and march for life. First aid "warming tents" were available for those feeling overcome by the cold. Yet the people marched on.

Various leaders spoke up for the babies who cannot. U.S. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), with whom we have met and visited, eloquently and passionately shared. According to Life Site News, here is an account of what she said: "We are here today to remember the millions of lives devastated with abortion and to pledge ourselves anew to upholding the most fundamental right, 'the right to life.'" Noting there are 1.2 million abortion per year in the U.S., she said, "There are more babies who perish each year through abortion than people who live in an entire congressional district." An adoptive mother, Hartzler said, "Every life is valuable and has a God-ordained purpose. All babies are wanted."

Indeed, all babies are wanted. Yet abortion clinics play mind games with the women in need of assistance. About half of American women will have an unintended pregnancy, and nearly 1/3 will have an abortion by the time they reach the age of 45 years. And the post-abortive syndrome affects them all. Suicide rates skyrocket for post-abortive women, and the rates for overall depression, fertility issues, anxiety, etc. also soar.

A young woman named "Patricia" knows this personally. She recently shared about the literal horror that she experienced after having three abortions. She strongly pleads with other young women to stop listening to people saying that it's just a blob of tissue. She saw the hands and feet and heads when removed from the womb. It is NOT tissue. It's not an "it". Rather, the baby is a girl or a boy.

In conclusion, let's listen to Dr. James Dobson's words of today. While the frigid air numbed his face, he passionately pled, "Let your baby live!"

We join him in that plea.

And we pray earnestly for God's mercy and for every post-abortive parent to come to Christ for redemption. (Learn more about how to do that by personally knowing Jesus at http://prayingpals.org/knowgod.html.) Meanwhile, our hearts' desire is encapsulated in Psalm 86:5 (AMP):

"For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy and loving-kindness to all those who call upon You."

Let us call upon the Lord and ask Him to help others call upon Him, too!
