Arkansas recently passed the most stringent abortion laws in the country. In lieu of a total ban, it is at least something… a move toward some semblance of sanity. Naturally, pro-abortion groups came out of the woodwork in protest, threatening lawsuits. For some time now when any measures have been used to stop or ban abortion proceedings, the supporters of infanticide have screamed about a “War on Women” and “Women’s Rights.”
If they want to call it a war, fine, but call it what it really is: the War on Children.
I know statistics and facts bore people, but you need to know these:
“There have been more than 53 million abortions performed in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973.
When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.
The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11. Every single day, more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion.
It has been reported that a staggering 41 percent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
According to Pastor Clenard Childress, approximately 52 percent of all African-American pregnancies now end in abortion.
One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost of a first trimester abortion at the ten week mark is $451.
The average cost of a vaginal birth with no complications in the United States is now over $9,000.
A Department of Homeland Security report that was released in January 2012 says that if you are “anti-abortion”, you are a potential terrorist. Unfortunately, there have also been other government reports that have also identified “anti-abortion” protesters as potential threats.
A while back one Philadelphia abortionist was charged with killing seven babies that were born alive, but witnesses claim that he actually slaughtered hundreds “of living, breathing newborn children by severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks.”
Some abortion clinics have been caught selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.
Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said the following….
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
In a 1922 book entitled “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control”, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following….
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every single year.
Planned Parenthood specifically targets the poor. A staggering 72 percent of Planned Parenthood’s “customers” have incomes that are either equal to or beneath 150 percent of the federal poverty level.
There are 30 Planned Parenthood executives that make more than $200,000 a year. A few of them make more than $300,000 a year.
Planned Parenthood received more than 487 million dollars from the federal government during 2010.
The following is one description of the five steps of a partial birth abortion….
1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
2) The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
3) The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.
4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.”*
To any sane, compassionate, child-loving, CHRISTIAN individual, this is more than enough to make one weep openly, burn in anger and/or shame. If we cannot, then God help us, our doom is sealed.
Calling opposition to abortion a “War on Women” is like calling the Holocaust a war against Nazis. How dare we abuse those staunch defenders of order and decency who loved their Fuerher and served their country! They deserve our support! /sarcasm
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,” God told Jeremiah. “Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations,” Jeremiah 1:5.
God does the forming of the child in the womb and determines its future and purpose. We may not understand why; we may want the child, or not; we do not see its future, but life even in the process of being born, innocent of all sin, is His alone to give and take.
When things begin to crumble around us, and this nation falls into whatever judgment God has reserved for it, consider if you voted for committed pro-abortionists (like our President) and those who support Planned Parenthood. If you did, and do, be unhappy, dismayed, upset, and angry. But do not be surprised. You will have deserved whatever you get.
If we do not have the intestinal fortitude to repent and stop this madness, then without doubt, Almighty God will, one way or another.
The children, through Him, will win this war. No matter what labels they tag us with or threats they use, let’s be sure we are on the side of right when it is over.
