God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

The horror of Roe v Wade

by Barbara Latta

Despite scientific evidence of life at conception, secular humanists, atheists and liberals continue the fight disguised as a women’s health care to promote abortion on demand.

The battle has gone so far now as to killing a full-term baby after birth if the mother decides she doesn’t want it. None of their other excuses have anything to do with women’s health, but how this latest act can be promoted as health care only exposes their power-hungry agenda and lack of respect for human life. This same group will push aggressively to protect eagle eggs, baby seals and whales from extinction but a human is relegated to tissue that can be discarded.

Since 1973, when the Supreme Court made abortion on demand legal, over 60 million abortions have been recorded. The worldwide data is over 1 BILLION since 1980. And the total is probably more as this is the recorded data. 

This is one of the most selfish acts a person can commit. Actress Alyssa Milano had two abortions because she stated she was not ready to be a parent and she had a future and a career. But there was no future for those two babies.

God tells us in His word, Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you (Jeremiah 1:5a).

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them (Psalm 139:14-16 NASB).

This is by no means a condemnation to those who have experienced abortion. God has extended forgiveness for all sin through Jesus Christ. It is up to us to receive that gift from Him. 

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1)

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us (Psalm 103:12).

But it is a condemnation of the legislation, the fight to keep the law, and the lack of regard for humanity by those who are only concerned about their power and money. Ronald Reagan said, "I've  noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born." 

The anniversary of Roe v. Wade only brings us more aware of the horror we have allowed into our society. Because of the 60 million babies who have died in the United States alone, the effect they would have had on society is gone. Millions of teachers, preachers, parents, doctors, lawyers, politicians, business leaders, scientists and citizens don’t exist. And neither do the children they would have had.

May we continue the fight to protect life. For help in finding pro-life aid or defending the unborn here are a few resources:

  1. Such a sad commentary of our nation, and our world Ms. Barbara. Well said author! Although, I truly pray we will one day never have to utter the "A-word" again. God's blessings ma'am. Let's resolve to "fight on."

    1. Yes, J.D., we should always fight on until this act is totally abolished. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings!

  2. Each time I hear these statistics, I shudder. Thank you for reminding us of the need to pray and speak up.

    1. The statistics are staggering and we should never stop praying and fighting for the unborn. Thanks for stopping by, Jeannie. Blessings!

  3. It's my prayer that this upcoming election does not bring more voices who desire to back up this horrifying execution of life. If only there were more talk about how these abortions affect women. There is so much talk about their rights and what they want from life. But from everything I've heard, no woman ever just "gets" her life back. So, so sad. Thank you for spreading awareness.

    1. It is my prayer also, Emily, that our elections will show the politicians and pro-choice people what this really is and that the country does not want it. I also pray we can stop funding Planned Parenthood. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings!
