The American Holocaust
As I write this I reflect on this past week’s celebrations of the National Day of Prayer as well as Mother’s Day. On the National Day of Prayer our nation is called to seek our Creator with humble repentance, requests, and praise. On Mother’s Day we thank God for the blessing of the biological, foster, adoptive, and spiritual mothers He has given us. In 2022 these two days have fallen in midst of a week of news and debate about the potential Supreme Court overruling of the horrendous Roe vs. Wade 1973 judicial overreach that legalized the murder of babies in American wombs.
2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (ESV)
In recent years, I have seen videos of the process through which abortionists have killed tens of millions of babies within the womb. I cannot unsee the photos of children’s crushed, cut, and suctioned bodies. I grieve that their mothers and fathers allowed the bodies of their children to be broken, dismembered, and disposed of or incinerated as trash.
Holocaust (dictionary.com): “any mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life”
German history cannot ignore their past reality of the Jewish holocaust. A mass slaughter of people deemed “life unworthy of life” (German: Lebensunwertes Leben) due to their ethnicity or different abilities. 17+ million souls murdered from 1933-1945.
Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.”
American history cannot ignore their past and present reality of the American holocaust. A mass slaughter of babies has occurred in the name of “choice”, “convenience”, “women’s health”, “privacy”, and “rights” by giving parents the “right” to murder their own children, declaring their child to be “life unworthy of life.” 63+ million souls murdered from 1973 to 2022.
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”
To Those Who Continue to Support Abortion. Stop, before it is too late. God assures us of His just wrath against those who murder. Hear and heed His loving warning. Watch a video of an abortion. See the photos of dismembered infants. Study the science and Scripture of life - watch babies sucking their thumbs in the womb, hear the heartbeats of 6 week olds, and feel the physical response of in-utero children to their mother’s voice.
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil”
To Those Who Regret Their Past Abortion or Election of Pro-Abortion/Choice Leaders. Confess to God that you are sincerely sorry. Repent and turn away from your sin against your Creator and His creation. Trust and believe in Jesus’ death and resurrection. Ask God for forgiveness. Enjoy Jesus’ love and peace forever.
1 John 1:9–10 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
To Those Who Pray and Vote for an End of Abortion in America and Beyond. Don’t stop. Speak the truth and love of Jesus. Keep praying fervently. Vote for life. Pray for our national, state, and local leaders. Support Clarity Solutions for Women and other pro-life causes in our region. Open your heart and home to adoption for the hundreds of thousands of babies that will need families if abortion is made illegal in the majority of U.S. states. Don’t grow weary in doing good. May the Lord heal our land.
Proverbs 31:8 “Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.”
