33 Years. Millions of Lives.

Today is the 33rd "anniversary" of Roe v. Wade, the decision that essentially legalized the murder of millions of innocent babies.

It is a very sad day for our country. Millions of people are missing from our country. We will never know who they might have been or what they might have done. Perhaps the scientist who would have found the cure for cancer was among the 40 million plus babies killed. Perhaps the greatest athlete ever. Perhaps the greatest novelist. Perhaps the first person to live in space or swim across an ocean. Perhaps the next Mother Theresa was murdered or the next President Ronald Reagan. Perhaps the next Mozart's brain was sucked out and his limbs torn off: no music from him.

Of course, we can never know. And those people who were murdered will never have their own children. An entire generation of people is missing, and their off-spring are missing, and their off-spring's off-spring are missing, and so on. There is a huge, dark hole in our country where they should be.

This is far worse than the Holocaust. Far worse than any Black Death Plague. Far worse than a relatively bloodless war in Iraq.

And we all have blood on our hands . . . for allowing this genocide to take place, for not doing all we can to stop it, end it.

Over 45,951,133 precious, innocent children have been brutally murdered by their own biological mothers, with the help of wicked doctors since Roe v. Wade was decided. read it again:

45,951,133 Babies Murdered

Here are some statistics from National Right to Life:
  • In 2000, more children died from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars combined.
  • There were nearly 3,600 abortions per day in 2000, 151 per hour, one every 24 seconds.
  • A survey of women seeking abortions indicated that only 7% of women cited typical “hard cases” (rape, incest, or some health concern with either the baby or the mother) as the primary reason they were seeking abortion.
These are babies who are being murdered. They aren't blobs of tissue, any more than your heart or lungs are just blobs of tissue. They have a purpose and a form.

By Day 22, the "heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mother’s." Usually, the woman does not even know she is pregnant yet. The baby has a HEART BEAT and its OWN BLOOD circulating through it. If you kill any other human with a heart beat, it's called murder in most cases.

By Week 11 – The "baby can grasp objects placed in hand; all organ systems [are]functioning; the baby has fingerprints, a skeletal structure, nerves, and circulation."

By Week 17 - The "baby can have dream (REM) sleep." Babies dream!

What else is it other than a baby? As far as I know, no woman has given birth to a bear cub or a salmon or an owl. Yet Liberals are all about protecting "endangered species" and their "natural habitats." Put a pregnant woman in front of them and they scream for an abortion "doctor" to come over.

The consequences of 33 years of abortion are already being felt in our country. There are countless women suffering, physically, emotionally, and mentally, from the "choices" they made. There is the missing generation of people. And because such a huge number of Americans are missing, we face economic consequences. There are 45 million fewer workers out there, to provide for Social Security. Forty-five million Americans would have been buying items, starting businesses, and helping provide financial stability for the United States.

The worst consequence, however, is the moral decay that has taken hold of this great country. People no longer care that babies are murdered. It is a matter of "choice." What about the baby's choice?

We have become a Culture of Death, where the easiest thing is to murder one's own child, rather than bear the responsibility or even give it up for adoption. There are so many childless couples out there who hope and pray for babies. There are teenage girls who aren't old enough to get their ears piereced on their own, but have had abortions without telling their parents.

It doesn't have to be this way. Every day we have a "choice" to allow abortion to continue or to put a stop to this heinous and EVIL practice. God will forgive those who have, support, and practice abortions. One only has to repent and ask Him. The woman who was known as "Roe" in Roe v. Wade found God and repented of her sins. Norma McCorvey has become a Christian and has worked tirelessly to reverse this horrible stain on our country. You can read more about here here.

Many say abortion isn't harmful to babies. These tell a far, far different story.

This does not have to happen. Women always have a choice. First, they have the choice to have sex or not. Then, they have the choice to preserve life and have the baby or not. What kind of person chooses to murder her own child?

There is so much help out there for women in difficult situations. They don't have to choose abortion. Of course, abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood, and their fans, the Democrat Party, NARAL, and NOW, like to tell everyone abortion is the only choice, but it isn't true.

The Truth is that every human life is precious in the eyes of God. Every innocent baby has the right to be born.

Please help us turn our Culture of Death into a Culture of Life. We must end abortion before it ends us all.
