"But You [G-d] are opposed to dishonest lawmakers who gang up to murder innocent victims." (Contemporary English Version Psalm 94:20, 21)

Since 1973, when abortion was legalized, it is estimated that 63 million babies have been aborted; and according to the CDC, almost 13,000 late-term abortions (i.e. fully developed babies) occur each year.  The excuse that late-term abortions are due to "fetal abnormalities" or to performed to "save the mother's life" are not backed by facts. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute found that abortions for fetal abnormalities "make up a small minority" of late-term abortions, and those that are said to be done to save the mother's life are even a smaller number. Over a thousand medical professionals have concluded that abortion is never necessary to save a mother's life.

In spite of the fact that Roe v. Wade was overturned on June 24, 2022, leaving abortion laws to the individual states, lawmakers under the current federal administration are still "ganging up" to murder more of the innocents. For instance, the Democrat Attorney General does not prosecute crimes committed by pro-abortionists against anti-abortionists. And, the Pentagon says abortion access will continue for the troops, despite state bans; corporate employers are offering to transport pregnant employees across state lines and pay for their abortions; and the Democrats are currently trying to get the "Abortion is Healthcare Everywhere" Act passed so the U.S. can fund abortions in foreign countries, in defiance of the Helms Amendment, which they want to repeal. The Helms Amendment prohibits U.S. foreign aid from being “used to pay for the performance of abortions as a method of family planning or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions,” even if abortion is legal in that country.

"Woe to unjust judges and to those who issue unfair laws, says the Lord..." (Isaiah 10:1a)

"So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it…" (Numbers 35:33 – NKJV)

"So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the L-RD." (Deut. 21:9 – NKJV)

Although Roe v. Wade is no longer the law of the U.S., a curse is still on America since individual states continue to permit abortion. Although lessened, the curse continues for the spilled blood of the innocent pre-born babies whose lives are an ‘inconvenient truth’ that individuals believe can be erased lawfully through abortion. The babies are still being sacrificed on the altar of the 'gods' of personal convenience, wealth, and self-appeasement. Not only do some States continue to legalize the murder of the unborn, but some of our legislators want the U.S. to pay for abortions to be performed in other (poor) countries as well. These are the ‘gods' that make our land polluted, an abomination to the L-RD.

"They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons and to the gods of Canaan. Then they poured out the blood of these innocent children and made the land filthy." (Contemporary English Version Psalm 106:37, 38)

Even though eighty-nine percent of abortions occur in the first 12 to 15 weeks of pregnancy according to the CDC, it is important to know what that means to the baby who has no say or choice in the matter. When lobsters are boiled alive and are knocking against the sides of the pot, we can identify that the lobster is in pain. In the same way, it is important to consider that all abortions are performed without anesthetizing the baby. Yet, people are able to turn a blind eye to the truth about the baby’s pain during an abortion because they cannot hear the silent screams or see the tears of babies being torn apart, burned with saline solutions or who are partially born allowing the abortionist to poke a hole in the back of the head to suck out its brains.

People considering abortion never consciously seek to know what the baby growing in their womb is like. Even before the baby is viable (able to live outside the womb) at 24 weeks, it has developed characteristics that prove it is a thinking, feeling human being. (Information is from http://www.pregnancy.org/fetaldevelopment).

At 9 weeks, the baby is wriggling, shifting, and dancing. The baby is practicing bending and flexing joints.

At 10 weeks, the most critical part of the infant’s development is complete.

By 11 weeks, nearly all structures and organs are formed and begin to function.

At 14 weeks, many babies have learned to suck their thumb.

At 18 weeks, vocal chords are formed and the baby goes through the motions of crying, but doesn’t make a sound.

At 20 weeks, the baby can hear noises outside of the womb and becomes familiar with voices, music, and other sounds. 

At 22 weeks, the baby can hear your conversations.

At 26 weeks, the baby shows response to touch.

At 30 weeks, the baby has the capability now to produce tears within the womb.

At 31 weeks, some babies move to the rhythm of music.

At 34 weeks the baby acts completely like a newborn.

Imagine a 14-week old fetus happily sucking its thumb, or playing with its hands and feet when suddenly, it is being pursued by a knife. Ultrasounds of such abortions show the baby trying desperately to get away to avoid its inevitable fate.

What would make a woman agree to destroy the fruit of her womb or a father his own offspring? The April 2009 AFA Journal published an article that would help explain this ongoing atrocity. For a variety of individual, mostly selfish reasons, couples are choosing not to have children or are starting parenthood at a much later age, thereby limiting the number of children they can have.

"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Another problem that is unique to the day in which we live is that many women feel forced to choose between a career and children either for financial reasons or for personal prestige. The AFA Journal notes that “more and more couples are choosing to organize their lives around their careers, rather than around marriage followed by children,” thus devaluing the lives of children to become just another lifestyle choice. "Their lives" is the important issue here.

“[L]ife revolves around their own personal dreams for happiness, and anything that gets in the way is, well, an obstacle to that happiness.” (AFA Journal April 2009)

In addition, young people are barraged by movies, books and television portraying the opinion that the happiest years for married couples are those before having children and those after they are grown and out of the house; childrearing has become a chore rather than a joy. We are living in a “hyper-individualistic” culture, far from the ideal set down in Scripture for mankind.

“G-d gave them his blessing and said: Have a lot of children! Fill the earth with people… (Genesis 1:28 Contemporary English Version)

It’s time to “Do what is right in the sight of the L-RD.” We must continue to fight against the forces of evil that are trying to destroy our offspring and our land. It’s time for each person reading this article to contact their State Representatives and Senators, as well as other like-minded individuals, to make sure that your state is abortion-free. It’s time to act and pray like never before for the pollution of innocent blood on our land to end!

"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live." (Deut. 30:19)
