Out of the Mouths of Babes

Complimentary Story
November 2022

   These are two letters my oldest daughter wrote, one when she was 12 years old and the other, when she was 14 years old. May God touch you as she did many locally!

   On January 22, 1973, abortion was legalized. Since then, it is estimated that more than 58 million innocent children have been murdered; which is seven times the estimated lives than those taken in the holocaust.

   The way abortions are performed are so horrific that I cannot state it here. The procedure is so bad that is worse than how they killed the Jews. This is happening over 3,000 times a day to BABIES! When you abort a child, you are taking the life, the breath from a human being! All that baby wants is to be loved and wanted by his/her mother.

   That child has a right to live; that child has a chance to change the world. There are many famous people that have impacted our life that would never had existed if their mothers would have followed their intentions of abortions. There are also many people that were adopted that would not be here if they were aborted. Abortions kills children! There are lives being wasted away, children helplessly being the one that feeds you and protects you, is the person to take away the one right that you have... life.

   The baby shouldn’t have to pay for the parents’ bad decisions. That baby is a gift from our Creator, the Author and Giver of life. He loves that baby, He has a plan for the baby and wants the child to follow Him. I WILL NOT let this casualty go unnoticed. I will fight against the brutal slaughter of babies. What are you doing to stop this casualty? It is OUR JOB to protect the unprotected, the orphans, the fatherless. Proverbs 24:11 says, “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter.” PLEASE, join me in this fight to save lives, to save the FUTURE. There are many ways YOU can stand locally.

   If you are pregnant and need help, there are BETTER choices! There are people that want to help you and your baby! Several low-income birth centers that do not encourage abortions are ready to help. Please don't kill your baby! Your baby is a gift from God!

   “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

   Many, in this column, have debated on the morality of abortion. This conversation is extremely necessary and those who take part in it are tenacious and brave. But, I am not here to write my opinion, even though I hope some of you already know where I stand on this topic.

   Many of us have very strong view points of abortion. Some see it as an asset, others see it as evil. What do you believe?  Some of us are confused. With all these opinions and statistics, it can get overwhelming. Sometimes we just wish we could push this subject away and pretend that it’s  not important. But, it IS important. Some of us just want to stay out of the argument. To stay neutral. Stay safe. And that is understandable. But that doesn’t mean it’s right. By staying on the fence, we’re taking the easy way out. Believe it or not, we need to have an opinion.

   Why? Because either such a simple human right of choice is being manipulated and attacked, or there really are thousands of innocent children being murdered by scared and frightened women. We cannot ignore this! Either way, our people are being deeply hurt and it’s our job to protect them. Because if we don’t... no one will.

   So I implore you, have an opinion. But don’t get it from your friends or family. Go to the source. For me, that source is the source of morality — the Bible. Look up statistics. Listen to debates. Learn how abortions are done.

   What about us who do have an opinion? Us who know what we want to fight for? Us who deeply believe that abortion is an evil?  What about us?

   Let me ask one question. Where are you?! Our American people are suffering! A wave or a kind smile to the sign-holders, though appreciated, is not going to hold another sign up. You can do more than pinning cute pro-life quotes on your Pinterest boards! Your voices NEED to be heard! Your voice is the voice you’ve been given to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Let them hear it! Stop staying silent. If you really believe in something, then DO something about it. Because all evil needs to succeed is for good people to do nothing.

   So please, stop waiting. Stop just believing. Stop sitting on the fence. Stop trying to stay safe. Do something. Live outside yourself.
