Thoughts on the 44th anniversary of Roe Vs Wade

Posted by Scott Tibbs at 4:00 AM (#)

It was 44 years ago today that the Supreme Court threw out laws against abortion in all 50 states, trampling state sovereignty and the Tenth Amendment. But much worse than that, the court opened the floodgates to 58,000,000 babies being brutally slaughtered in the name of "reproductive choice" and "personal autonomy." This is the great moral stain on our nation, far worse than slavery, Jim Crow, the genocide of the American Indians or any other wicked thing our nation has done.

What must a holy and righteous God think when he looks upon this slaughter? We can discern what He thinks from His holy Word:

  • And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. -- 2 Kings 17:17-18
  • Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto Me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, That thou hast slain My children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? -- Ezekiel 16:20-21
  • And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. -- Jeremiah 32:35

I have been accused of using "inflammatory rhetoric" when speaking of abortion. But when over a million babies are being murdered by dismemberment every single year, is there any language that can be used to describe it that is too inflammatory? No, there is not. The reason people object to "inflammatory" terms like slaughter and murder is because it exposes their shame and the reality of what they support. I refuse to use language that covers for and gives euphemisms for murder.

I have been told that my "inflammatory rhetoric" will not convince anyone why abortion is wrong, but the reality is that I do not need to convince anyone. We all know what is going on here, no matter how fervently we deny the truth in front of our eyes. Most of us have seen the pictures of bloody aborted babies. Instead, I am calling on this nation and this city to repent of the bloodshed we have allowed and supported. While I certainly support efforts to inform people about abortion, the need we have is not education. We need repentance.

We have heard much in the last year about how we need to "make America great again," but America will never be great so long as we are exterminating millions of unborn babies with the full protection and blessing of our state, federal and local governments. No nation that embraces such wickedness and denies basic human rights to the most defenseless among us is or ever will be great.

There are things to be encouraged about. We have seen a lot of pro-life legislation, and it is very encouraging to see young people motivated to oppose abortion. But what we really need is God's mercy on us. We need to pray that God sends His Spirit to us to convict us of sin and righteousness and judgment (John 16:7-11) and being us back to the Cross. Without a spiritual reformation, we cannot and will never win this war and protect God's little ones. We will instead be in line for God's judgment.

Won't you pray for repentance on this bloody, horrible day?
