Do you hear that cry from the Lord? It is His cry to families and mothers everywhere, to let all infants in the womb go free—free to live! But still, we have been rebellious and hardened. Recently, ever since the world found out that the U. S. Supreme Court may be putting a federal ban on abortion, the left has been apoplectic! Screaming things like, “My body is my own! Nobody can tell me what I can and can’t do with my body!”
The only trouble with that statement is that once a woman has intercourse with a man and becomes pregnant, she has become responsible for another life within her. If she chooses to get an abortion, she is choosing to murder her own baby. It’s that simple. And when she says, “My body is my own,” she is denying her responsibility to her child, and she is caring nothing for the body and life of the child (and the male who is the infant’s father also has a responsibility for the infant, to keep it alive and cared for).
Thinking positively, we in America may be embarking on a moment of truth—a pivotal time when something good will happen: that America will begin to see that abortion is wrong. And if that happens, we will put aside our selfishness and the women will begin to see that she has another life within her that she must protect and care for at all costs.
Comparing the end of Slavery to the possible end of Abortion
As many are now so disturbed at the possible banning of abortion, we can look back at a similar point in our history where a similar thing happened, mainly to Democrats. As we know, most Democrats owned slaves; and they regarded them as their own property. And when they were told that all slaves were to be free (in the Emancipation Proclamation), they were furious and regarded it as an attack on their lives. I imagine that they screamed something like, “They are mine; I own those slaves; nobody can take them away from me.”
But eventually, they saw the light of truth and what they must do; and they saw that ending slavery was right and good. Will we do the same now? Will we now give freedom to so many that want to be born and to live their own lives? Will we let them be free to live?
Please let us follow the cry, no, the command of God, “Let my children go!”
