I am struggling with this full term abortion that some states are wanting to allow. Actually, I struggle with the idea of abortion at all. Obviously this is one of the most heavily debated topics. As much as I want to jump on a soap box and give you my views, that is not what I want to talk about today. I know. Surprise opening if I am not debating pro-life and abortion, but everyone should know my heart on that by now.
What I want is discuss is if there are so many people outraged at this, why is it happening? We live in the United States of America which I was taught in school is a republic. The definition of republic is: “a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.” Okay, I will agree to that. I have also heard it said we are a democracy. A democracy is “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.”
So whatever our country is, it is “by the people” and not just by the elected. With so many citizens being upset with this latest abortion ruling, I ponder why it is passing. Aren’t there more of us that are appalled and against it than there are that are for it?
If the information I have been reading is true, it is absolutely nothing short of barbaric. For a Nation that says “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. . .” this latest news on full-term abortion doesn’t sound too welcoming. It sounds like veiled infanticide. I see the comparisons of the protection for the young endangered species verses an unborn human child and it breaks my heart.
What can we do? Honestly, if so many of us are disturbed by this shouldn’t we be doing something? My thought is to PRAY FERVENTLY and WITHOUT CEASING. Each day take this before Abba, our Father and Creator. If we are so immensely grieved, He must be so much more than we can fathom. Second, tell every elected official. Ask what can be done to stop this lunacy. Someone much smarter than I should have some ideas on what it takes to stop this killing.
Please, nothing else. No violence, no protests, nothing that could get out of hand. This was something I needed to talk to you about and request prayer. It seems ridiculous that there are so many against this and yet it bulldozes through. We need to put on the Armor of God and pray! Will you join me?
