Over the years I’ve identified with the American Family Association and its passion to protect the unborn. The above graphic from an AFA publication should jolt us regarding the continuing practice of abortion in America.
As a public-policy adviser with Mat Staver at Liberty Counsel, I report what we communicated recently regarding Planned Parenthood and its involvement in the abortion industry. The organization’s 2016–17 annual report showed a profit of $98.5 million, while it “received 543.6 million in taxpayer dollars while performing 321,384 abortions.”
Coming face-to-face with the above brutal realities should move all of us to action. It’s impossible to call oneself a true Christian and not be pro-life.
Scripture directs us, “Open your mouth for the speechless in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9).
This Friday is the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. Participating in a national prayer call with the current director, I can report our desire is that this be the last such event. The time has come to overturn Roe v. Wade once and for all! Now we have a president and vice president aligned with us.
When we lived in the capital area, we participated in the March for Life 20 times. At times the weather was frigid, but we made our statement by attendance. Our local church honored with a plaque and standing ovation the former director, Nelly Gray, prior to her death.
I strongly encourage everyone living within reasonable distance to be there in Washington on Friday. Last year’s attendance was the biggest yet, and momentum is on our side!
Our ministry, Intercessors for America, has all pertinent information on our website. In going there you can also put your signature on a permanent document that will be presented to the Supreme Court regarding restoring a culture of life in the United States of America.
Planned Parenthood said this week in a statement honoring Martin Luther King Jr. that they were committed to preserving his dream for justice. This is deliberate deception, as they do not stand for justice regarding the unborn.
Enough is enough! Let’s pray, proclaim the truth and participate in activities underscoring “all men (including those precious ones developing in the womb) are created equal and have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
