Since 1973, the United States has slaughtered MORE than 54 MILLION innocent, unborn citizens. In New York City today, 40% of all pregnancies end in abortion. Among minorities, it’s as high as 60%. In some neighborhoods, it’s 67%.
Apparently, even these appalling numbers are not enough to satisfy the blood lust of Democrats. In Albany two weeks ago, Governor Cuomo proposed an even more liberal abortion bill that, if passed, would make New York the bloodiest state in the union by declaring that abortion is a fundamental right that cannot be denied and against which New York may not discriminate.
It would mean:
- NO parental notification for minors;
- NO limits on taxpayer funding of abortion;
- NO limits on late-term abortions.
It would allow people who are not doctors to legally perform abortions, thereby ensuring an even higher death count as women die from botched procedures.
It would threaten the very existence of Catholic hospitals. Long Island alone is home to six hospitals that could be crippled by having Medicare funds withheld if they refuse to comply.
When Cuomo announced these proposals, his audience CHEERED. That’s how far this nation has strayed, that people actually celebrate the prospect of killing even MORE helpless innocents on the altar of narcissism.
Scripture is clear that unborn babes are not “lumps of cells”. John the Baptist recognized His Lord and Savior when he was still in utero!
“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb.” (Luke 1:41)
And the LORD is clear that the lives of the unborn are in no way mere property for women to “choose” to discard.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” (Jer 1:5)
“The fruit of the womb is a gift from the LORD, a reward.” (Psalm 127:3, paraphrased)
“You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. My very self you know, even when I was being made in secret.” (Psalm 139:13-15, paraphrased)
GOD says over and over and over again that killing children is an abomination to Him.
He forbids the practice and says it is an abomination that He detests. (Deut 12:31)
He promises that anyone who does it must be put to death. He promises that, if the people of the land condone such acts by failing to put the wrongdoer to death, He Himself will punish not just the wrondoer, but also his or her family and the people who failed to put the wrongdoer to death. (Lev 20:1-5)
God swore vengeance on the Ammonites, “because they ripped open pregnant women in Gilead.” (Amos 1:13)
Governor Cuomo and all those who would cheer for the destruction of the unborn would do well to heed Jeremiah 7:29-34, where God told Jeremiah to proclaim to the people of Judah that, because they had done this evil – “sacrificed their sons and daughters, something I never commanded or considered” – He would “silence the cry of joy, the cry of gladness … in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem.” He promised to turn the land to rubble and make the corpses of this evil people to “be food for the birds of the sky and beasts of the earth, which no one will drive away.”
Think about this. At the time Jeremiah lived, the estimated human population of the entire WORLD was somewhere between 5 and 7 Million. We’ve slaughtered ten times that number in the abortuaries of this blood-soaked and evil nation. Yet still the Democrats cry for more. We are so screwed.
