Everything we do physically on earth also has a spiritual repercussion. When America legalized murdering of unborn children, a bull's-eye was placed on the back of every child in America. We have a running tally of children killed at school – where, when and by whom – but no one is keeping a tally of children killed by family/friends/strangers.
This spiritual repercussion affects all children. No one wants to hear that, so the killing of children will continue.
