To The Editor:
Last Dec. 20 children were killed at school in Connecticut. There was a great outcry over these precious children. People were outraged, angry, numb and rightly so, as I was over the senseless killings of innocent, defenseless children. I have prayed and wept for the parents of these children.
Readers, there is another silent, relentless attack against our precious infants thats thriving today. However, you hear very little about it in the news. Last year over a million babies were killed, aborted. The political world calls them fetuses, it doesnt sound so bad, does it? They try to rationalize, sanitize and politicalize this uncivilized practice as normal. It is brutal, barbaric, unthinkable and unacceptable to God Almightly!
Planned Parenthood killed roughly 334,000 infants last year. Incomprehensible, immoral, unacceptable and unconscionable for a so-called civilized nation to practice. (God help us and forgive us).
When does life begin? God says at conception. Jeremiah 1:5 says before I formed you I knew you, before you were born, I sanctified you. In the Old Testament, the people were offering up their children as burnt sacrifices to false god Molech. What did God say and how did He respond? (He called it an abomination, detestable and He hated it Dt. 12:31 Paraphrased). Since 1973, we have offered our babies as a sacrifice to the baby killers, materialism, and selfishness.
The President and your NY Governor are pushing hard for it to be legal at any age in the womb. Many instances are told of babies lying on the operating table alive, and then killed. The 6th commandment is: thou shall not murder. An infants heart starts beating 18 days after conception, and child feels pain in 9 weeks. It is a human being, Gods creation. PS 139:14 God says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Readers that is what God says about you, you are special, valued and loved.
I feel Gods judgment has begun upon our nation for our continued practice of infanticide that our government has made legal, and are not repenting of it as a people. Proverbs 6:16-17 says six things I hate, seven that are an abomination, a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood.
Fifty-five million defenseless babies have been killed, and we all thought Hitler was a cruel person. Look at the sins mentioned above that our government practices daily. Readers, Gods wrath is coming, make no mistake. What must we do then? Repent of our sin, turn to God and ask for forgiveness. Our only hope is Jesus Christ the Son of God who came to earth to save a sinner such as I.
For those who have had an abortion, please know God can and will forgive you, if you go to Him. To those who were forced, or who knew no better, those who felt there was no other option, the God of Compassion and Forgivenes will you as well. As always, this letter is written in love, concern for our community and neighbors! Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hand of the living God, we as a people need to fear Him.
