We Must Cry Out Against Abortion
It's vital that we cry out against abortion! We must not be silent. Unborn babies have no voice. We must be their voice.
How do we "cry out" you ask?
Does that mean making a public spectacle of ourselves on busy street corners crying out with loud voices against the murder of innocent babies? Yes, it might, if you feel led to do so, but there is another way to "cry out" and be heard by the most important pair of ears in the universe.
We must cry out in our closets against the sin of abortion. God will hear our cries.
Genesis 18:20,21 "And the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know." (NKJV)
God heard the cries of those around Sodom and Gomorrah about its wicked state. He didn't let it go on forever. We all know what happened to Sodom & Gomorrah.
We can trust that God will hear our cries for the innocent unborn. He will not let rampant abortion in America go on forever, but we must cry out against abortion. And we must cry out much and frequently. God will hear our cries. God will act in the way that only God can act.
I'm not against trying to change laws, but in reality, that is a ridiculous way to save these young lives. Legislation takes years, decades, lifetimes....these babies cannot wait that long. They each only have a few weeks or months hanging in the balance of life or death.
Abraham Lincoln wrestled with the power he had in his hand as President of the United States of America. That power was called, "Executive Order". We know little about this power, but as he wrestled within himself, he decided to use that power and free the slaves unilaterally in one fell swoop!
Think about it. Each state had its laws concerning slavery. Some were very complex, detailed laws. Some states allowed slavery. Some states didn't allow slavery. Yet, Abraham Lincoln, in one act, declared all slaves FREE! He had the power to override the laws concerning slavery in every state in the union.
It's the power we need. And we need a man elected to presidency who has the guts and moral courage of Abraham Lincoln to declare each and every unborn baby to be SAFE in its mother's womb from conception to birth to after being born. (What is this absurdity we now hear about called "abortion after birth?" Where will this wickedness ever end?)
Another way we can "cry out against abortion" is taken from Proverbs 1: 20, 21 "Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares .She cries out in the chief concourses, At the openings of the gates in the city She speaks her words:"
This can be done by renting large billboards at the entrances to cities, especially those cities prone to offering easy access to abortion services such as Iowa City, Iowa.
Nomenclature is important. The slogan "Civil Rights for the UNBORN" is wording that everyone can understand. Everyone deserves civil rights. Slaves deserve civil rights, minorities deserve civil rights, underpaid workers deserve civil rights, unborn people deserve civil rights.
I suggest we pick up on the phrase, "Civil Rights for the UNBORN" and start using it on billboards. It's non condemning. It's easily comprehended. It's non partisan. Who doesn't understand civil rights? It's an issue that transcends politics.
It makes, as it should, everyone who wouldn't give civil rights to the most innocent among us look foolish, as indeed they are, the biggest of fools.
Let us cry out against abortion in our closets, in our churches, in our homes. God hears the cry of His people and He can act like no other.
Let us pray for a president with guts to save innocent life.
Also let us cry out against abortion on billboards at the entrances of cities. "Civil Rights for the UNBORN!" Time is short, very, very short for these innocent little ones who need us to be voices for them.
