Let Justice Roll Down: Mlk/Sanctity of Life Day
A continuing of our series in the book of Amos
It is a known fact that during times of war and oppression, women and children get it the worse. Here is no difference. In order to reduce the population so that they could take the land the Ammonites were literally aborting children, by the cruelest measures available to them; they “Ripped Open”those that were pregnant. I know many will not agree that this is the same as the sanitized way(s) in which we condone abortion in the 21st century, but other than the lack of cruelty to the women, it is no different for the baby that is killed and thrown away. Modern day abortion, as well as euthanasia was implemented to keep the population down, especially the population of the undesirables (Namely the sickly and people of color). Abortion is not only cruel to babies, and clearly a sin in the scripture, it is also rife with a racist back-story. Former State Representative, Dr. Alveda King wrote this, “The racism in Planned Parenthood’s history is undeniable. America’s largest abortion provider was founded by Margaret Sanger, a woman who wanted what she termed “more children from the fit, less from the unfit.” She once described aboriginal Australians as “just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development.” She had no problem speaking to a Klan meeting. That racism still exists in Planned Parenthood is also undeniable. Earlier this year in taped conversations, seven different Planned Parenthood offices across the country were willing to accept donations for the sole and explicit purpose of aborting black babies – until their willingness to accept those donations was exposed.” (See, http://www.priestsforlife.org/africanamerican/abortion-industry-racism.htm). The sanctity of life of ALL humans is dear to God and to much of the words of scripture.
Questions for Thought
- Is Abortion right or wrong?
- Why is God concerned with the “Sanctity of Life?”
- Does Christ’s cross cover the sin of having an abortion?
- In what way(s) do you choose convenience over what is right?
