Numbers

I have heard a lot of numbers being quoted this week.

40 years and 55 million.

The 40 year anniversary of Roe V Wade  and since that decision 55 million lives lost.

And beyond that 55 million plus lives changed forever.

I was watching a 24 hour news channel where the commentator of the show was celebrating the

anniversary.  As I listened to her talking, I became physically ill to my stomach.

Have we changed so much as a society that now not only do those who call themselves 'pro choice' not only believe in the right to kill an innocent child, they actually want to celebrate that ability ?

If this particular news person and her guests were to be believed- then yes.

Tragic.

Horrifyingly Tragic.

What could 55 million people do?

We'll never know.

Cured cancer.
Found the answer to renewable energy.
Became a great evangelist.
World class chef.
Extraordinary teacher.
Loving, hard working father.
Stay at home Mom.

Kids with disabilities who society might label as 'less than' but who's families would have learned so much from.

Poor children who would be a blessing to others as they learned to care for them.

Families who where made whole by the adoption of these babies into their lives.

But we'll never know.

But, we do know that those of us who didn't get to know these children, lives are marked as well.

So, what do we do now?

My answers are simple and unsophisticated, but we love those parents who've decided to abort their children and we tell them God loves them and their lives can be made whole again.

We offer safe places for girls to go when faced with a pregnancy that was not planned or wanted.

We donate our time and money to keep those safe places open and functioning well.

And we pray.

We pray for forgiveness as a nation.

We pray for the innocent bloodshed to stop.

We pray for healing.

We pray for wisdom for our leaders that they will see the evil of this genocide and stand up for what it right.

And we love. Never shame.

We seek justice for the least of these.

40 years and 55 million. Tragic numbers indeed.

Dear Anonymous,

I'm sorry you feel this way and I want you to know that I am praying for you.
My goal would never be to shame anyone.
Jesus died on the cross for our sins and we when believe in Him and ask him for forgiveness and acknowledge him as Savior we become His child-no matter what is in our past.
