Friends of ours are on their way today to Washington D.C. for the 2015 March for Life on January 22, along with more than 400K other prolifers. Many cities across America also have their own March for Life rallies, some huge and some small…but remember, NOTHING we do for the unborn is small in the eyes of Jesus.
Like any other ‘convention’, leaders go to teach, workers come to exchange ideas and share testimonies. The March for Life is no different than any other protest, other than prolifers actually SAVES LIVES.
Here are some observations to and from the March for Life:
One-sixth of the population of the United States have been aborted these last 42 years that we know of. ONE-SIXTH OF THE POPULATION.
The unborn are underserved and under protected. During the last election, we were inundated with liberal infused agenda regarding the 47% that depends on government funds to eat, sleep, get iPhones, healthcare, on and on and on. We, the 53%, pays for what others abuse as ‘needs’ and ironically we cannot pay for our own needs and are not destitute enough to soak up some of those nifty entitlements to compensate having paid for someone else’s. Somehow, their entitlements are far more important than saving lives of even their own unborn children. Our unborn are the underserved and they are under protected, but entitlements to the ‘47%’ overprotects and overserves them to dispose of their pregnancies. It is a fact that it is much more costly to save an unborn child than it is to abort them. Money, money, money.
We are created equal, not born equal. God created each one of us before the world began (Jer 1:5). God created us in His image (Gen 1:27). God numbered every hair on your head (Mat 10:30). IN OTHER WORDS, no one is an accident, no one is a mistake; not one person is NOT known by God regardless of anything (go to first statement of TRUTH). HOWEVER, because of SIN, we are not born equal or at all. We were already morally compromised, shown prejudice, our fate decided within weeks of conception. Because of selfishness and bias, we have been made into a ‘thing’ and an ‘issue’ instead of the human that God made us to be. Are we equal? To God we are, but not to society or the government.
There are over 600,000 FROZEN EMBRYOS in the United States right now. 600K frozen unborn children awaiting their fate at this very moment. Some of these children are designated for family, some for research, some may be adopted, and some will simply be thrown away. This is why IVF is so dangerous. Many embryos won’t survive getting frozen, thawed and some won’t implant…IN OTHER WORDS many unborn children die because people try to jump start God and fertility. You have to wonder how many more unborn children we can add to the 3500+ per day aborted.
Purity and Modesty equals Beauty. First, I am so pleased to see more ministries and non-profits teaching Purity like StandTrue. All girls were pure once, but Desperation…Peer Pressure…Insecurity has led to sexual irresponsibility and sometimes unplanned pregnancy. Girls are being groomed to be sexually permissive and promiscuous which leads to pregnancy and becoming post abortive. Rather than preserving our girls to be great wives, mothers, mentors and friends, parents allow the world into their home to teach these young women to be angry feminists. Since 1973, the government has been allowed in our homes and in the bedrooms to tell parents how to parent our kids to be sexually active without responsibility. Our girls need to be taught to love who they are in Christ because He gave them the gift of Purity and Modesty: “Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies,” Prov 31:10. To be better women, we first have to take parenting back and teach our girls to be proper women, to teach them that they are priceless and beautiful.
Real. Social. Justice. Social Justice is in the eyes of the beholder. Counting back over 100 years of abortion, society as a whole has gotten worse and worse; the culture of death has prevailed and continues in leaps and bounds. Society has become lulled to sleep by a hate driven liberal agenda that looks for the weak and sick and innocent to bully into accepting an agenda to eventually erase them. KeepLifeLegal believes in a Christ-driven social justice, we also seek the weak, sick and innocent to give them the gospel with their immediate need [food, clothing, etc] and real HOPE. Our innocent unborn have become victims of an evil, eugenic liberal agenda that wants to erase a ‘problem’ rather than fixing it at its root: give a hand UP not a hand out until it’s spent. Real Social Justice is ministering to ‘the least of these‘ and who we honor, Jesus Christ.
AND remember this: Prolife efforts and ministries are not subsidized by the government like Planned Parenthood is. We are on the front lines, we preach and teach, we walk the WALK for the justice of just one unborn child usually at our own expense to our bank accounts, our jobs. This is not easy, though it is not hard. If you are called you will suffer persecution, doubt and fear. But once you come to terms with the societal apathy of unborn death by abortion, I promise that you will be encouraged, edified and enrapt with helping the handiwork of God – His Creation – to be born.
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
And THAT’S #WhyWeMarch.
