“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul. Can wicked rulers be allied with You, those who frame injustice by statue? They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge.” Psalm 19-22
During a time of meditation, this scripture turned my attention to the current debate regarding abortion, artificial invasive and harmful birth control methods, and the Roe vs Wade decision which legalized the killing of little innocent babies in the womb. I find myself wondering yet again, why does America allow laws that uphold abortion, and use tax dollars to support the abortion agenda?
Often, during the day to day exploits and activities of the pro-life movement, we come into contact with friends and foes. The thin line comes in when we consider that pro-choice today can always become pro-life tomorrow. That’s what happened to me, not quite overnight, but I was once pro-choice and now I am pro-life.
What causes someone to turn from being pro-choice (which includes the agenda of abortion and euthanasia), to becoming pro-life? There are many, many testimonies about women and men who were once pro-choice and are now pro-life.
How does one turn away from the rebellion of the pro-choice agenda to the repentance and affirmation of the pro-life mission? I would strongly urge us to consider that such a transformation can only occur when there is a “change of heart.” God, by the Power of the Holy Spirit causes us to repent and turn to Him. In turning to God, we realize that the pro-death agenda is just that. Death.
In the scripture above, we read that there are those who frame injustice by statue (law.) Roe vs Wade, the proposed HHS mandate to pay for distribution of harmful “birth control” drugs and devices, millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, all are part of the framing of injustice in America. As my uncle once said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
My friends, Planned Parenthood has launched a 40 days for abortion prayer campaign. Is this unbelievable or what?
America needs revival. God isn’t playing with us. There can be no revival without repentance. This won’t be the time for pointing fingers at one another, this must be a time of speaking up and out for life, for protection of our religious freedoms, and for repentance. We must love and encourage one another in this battle, and we must also love those of the pro-choice persuasion. We must fight to win them with love and truth. Amen? Amen!
