I love this video. It brought tears to my eyes. Every life is potential for greatness. Circumstances that look bleak to us can — and are — used to forge phenomenally-capable individuals. Abortion is “playing God”; it is not our place to take another human’s right to life.
It seems that God created me with a soft spot in my heart regarding unborn children. If you knew me in high school, you’ll remember this was what I was fanatic about. Every speech, many papers, lots of conversations — anytime I could persuade people of the evil of abortion and the wonder of life I was on it!
Interestingly, my firstborn son came into the world on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade — reminding me in a tangible way each year of the reality of life and death. Watching my son grow has given me a renewed respect for the gift of life! On the other hand, sometimes I feel I could drown in depth of sorrow living in a country that sanctions parents taking the lives of their children.
I heard on the radio today that a group of people are requesting President Obama sign an Emancipation Proclamation for the Unborn. Did you know African Americans are experiencing a genocide through abortion, right here in the U.S.A.? What a historic opportunity for President Obama to free African Americans from this tyranny.
When you consider how abortion has been used as a racist tactic against African Americans, it is quite ironic that our first black president is so wildly pro-choice. Rev. Johnny Hunt of the Life Education and Resource Network, writes, “Because of some very suave planning by abortion supporters and providers abortionists have eliminated more African-American children than the KKK ever lynched.”
I’m praying that President Obama’s eyes will be opened to the horrors of abortion, not only against black people but all humans whose lives are lost through it.
“I am thrilled we reached this landmark as a country – the first African American President. Isn’t it just a little ironic (and horrific) that millions of future Americans will never learn of it?” —Mike Adair
