On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service launched an unprovoked attack on the United States naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory. (History.com, 2018) This attack served as the catalyst for the United States’ involvement in World War II. Unbeknownst to the Japanese and their Nazi cohorts, this attack also precipitated their ultimate demise. (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2019) This act was a momentous turning point in the War. There are many significant events in human history that have shaped our societies for better and for worse. In my estimation, one such event happened in 1973, when the United States Supreme Court federally sanctioned the murder of children in the womb. (Findlaw.com, 2019). Before this regulation was passed, abortion was legal in several states, but this piece of legislation seemed to tip the scale in the favor of abortion practices becoming what it is today. In our day and time, new laws have taken root in several states making abortion available up to the time of birth. The abortion apologists argue that these laws do not promote abortion on demand but provide only the option to terminate the pregnancy in extreme cases. The law states that a healthcare professional (which is a very broad term)
May perform an abortion when, According to the practitioner’s reasonable and good faith professional Judgment based on the facts of the patient’s case: the patient is within Twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an Absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the Patient’s life or health. (New York Senate, 2019)
In other words, abortions can be performed at any time based on the health care professional’s “reasonable and good faith professional judgment.” The same healthcare professionals that promote hormone-blocking drugs for children. The same healthcare professionals who dispute the invariable nature of the male and female genders. The same healthcare professionals that spend half of their time literally ripping children apart in the womb. These “professionals” can determine whether or not a child lives or dies. These individuals will do what others have done in the past, that which is right in their own eyes (Judges 21:25 & Cf. 1 Corinthians 10:13).
Many sound-minded, God-fearing people are outraged by this practice, as am I. In an attempt to bring sanity to the table, many have once again reemphasized the tried and tested argument of when life begins. This, in my estimation, is an exercise in futility for the times in which we live. Going back and forth with abortion apologists about the sanctity of life and when it begins is tantamount to arguing with the Devil about the need for obedience. The truth of the matter is that most of these individuals could not care less about when life begins. They know the truth, they have heard the truth for years and they have outright rejected it. We ought not to cast the precious pearls of Christ before these swine or give that which is holy to the dogs (Matthew 7:6). The tone of our message must reflect the times in which we live. We must take our cue from the Lord when He addressed various nations including His own about their sins. In these instances, the message was that of repentance. Throughout the Bible God made His case against sinful individuals, He told them exactly where they went wrong and demanded their immediate repentance. Furthermore, the Lord pronounced their impending doom if they refused to change. Noah’s world (Genesis 6 & CF. 2 Peter 2:5) Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19) Nineveh (Jonah 1:1-2) and the nation of Israel (Amos 5:4-6) are prime examples of a God who said enough is enough, change or else. This is the type of message we must preach to a nation who has refused to reason, Repent or Perish (Luke 13:3-5, Acts 17:30-31).
Repent of your Selfish Attitudes. In the celebration of this heinous law, the “rights” of women were taunted as paramount. Forget the child in the womb, it’s about what I want. The action of abortion has to be the epitome of selfishness. You knowingly slept with an individual, and as a result of YOUR actions, you became pregnant. Did you not know that this is how babies are made? Were you unaware that children are produced by intercourse? Sure, you did know, but at that time the only thing on your mind was YOU and your carnal pleasures. Now, the child has to die for something YOU did. The child becomes this great inconvenience and must be horribly put to death so you can continue with your life as it is. Even the lawmakers in this instance claimed to share the interest of women when in reality they are wholly politically motivated. The Lord clearly grouped this type of attitude with a host of other sins. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 Timothy 3:2. (Emphases MWS). Repent of your selfish ways so that you and your child can live.
Repent of your Lack of Humanity. Contrary to the beliefs of most of you, mankind was created not evolved or hatched. Furthermore, we were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27). This meaning, we were created differently from and above the animals. In the United States Declaration of Independence, it states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (Wikipedia, 2019)
Your abject denial and refusal of this Declaration and the historical Biblical record are what led us to this point. God-fearing individuals are not surprised at the conclusions you have reached, it is to be expected. Putting mankind on the same plain as animals will inevitably lead to a degradation of our worth. Your fervor in promoting the heresy of evolution and your refusal to listen to reason has caused you to lose your humanity. Having affection for our kindred or offspring is a natural thing. One does not have to instruct a mother or father to feel something for their children. However, you have lost that affection. You are what the Lord describes as being without natural affection (Romans 1:31 & 2 Timothy 3:3). Men and women enter an abortion establishment and watch their offspring being ripped apart. Some shed a tear and realize what they have done; we are glad their conscience still bothers them. However, as is evident by these new laws, many of you could not care less about a fully developed child of your own. It is the height of hypocrisy to lecture others about taking care of the poor or helping the disfranchised and yet murder your own offspring. Friends you need to repent, you need to dig deep and find your humanity again before it’s eternally too late.
Repent of your Bloodthirsty disposition. The following excerpt is taken from the New York’s amendment of their abortion laws. “Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures performed in the United States.” (New York Senate, 2019). This statement highlights a mindset that is beyond my comprehension. The only word that comes to mind is bloodthirsty. Have you seen pictures of an abortion? Do you know what happens in an abortion procedure? I have and it sickens me to even write of such things. There are many ways to describe an abortion but “safe” is not one of them. You, lawmakers and abortion apologist parade yourself around as decent individuals, compassionate, caring and progressive in thought and practice when in reality you are no more than murderers. You take innocent lives at will, you gleefully cheer as laws are approved to make easier the taking those lives. You look upon men like Hitler and other genocidal dictators with disdain and yet the truth of the matter is you are in league with them. You have glamorized murder, you have sanctioned the shedding of innocent blood and for this, you must repent. These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, Proverbs 6:16-17.
Please understand, a time of reckoning is coming (Acts 17:30-31). You have been warned multiple times to change your ways and you have waved your fist in the face of God and rejected His laws. There is no salvation in your current state, there is no hope at the end of the path on which you are. We will continue to pray for your repentance, we will continue to pray for your hearts to be softened. We will continue to lament and cry for the millions of children you have murdered. We will stand firm in the Lord and we will not now or ever change our minds about this matter. You are murdering our future by the scores and you need to Repent!
