Turning the Tide in the Abortion Struggle.
In 1995, Gallup polls showed 56% of Americans called them selves pro choice (although very few ever saw the "choice," before or after the abortion) ) and 33% Pro Life. Today polls show that 51% of Baby Boomers, the children of WW 11 generation, and the largest supporters of the legalization of abortion to begin with, now view abortion as wrong. 58% of Millennials (age 18-29) and 60% of Generation Xers (age 30-44) say abortion is morrally wrong.
One reason for this change, is this change in demographics. In addition, it is the people who respect life that are having the future Pro Life citizens.
Two other reasons for the change are technology and the truth. In 1973, Justice Blackmun appealed to ignorance to justify the decision in Roe v Wade, which made "legal" the slaughter of children right up to thre moment of birth. His written decision said, "at this point in the develoment of man's knowledge, we can not resolve he difficult decision of when life begins." "If it could be determined that the fetus is a living human person, then the case collapses, for the fetus right to life would then be guranteed specifically by the 14th amendment.
New Pro Life activists use technology to depict the moral corruption that follows when the sacredness of life is denied. The internet, new media, and social networking all spread the word. Sonograms, ultrasound, photoscopy (camera in the womb) all testify to the humanity of the soon to be born child within the womb, while pictures of what abortions does, is available through the internet and often shown in front of killing centers such as Planned Parenthood.
Life is the most precious gift we are given by Almighty God. It is the foundation of every other right we enjoy. One can be a little hungry, a little naked, a little in prison, but not a little alive.
Those who support abortion directly, or indirectly by their silence or their vote, play God by their actions. To them, the right to life is no longer absolute, but now based on the acceptance and worth that others give to the child. Scripture alone answers that question.
The Bible will always remain the greatest "history book" ever compiled. Recording of course clearly God's will for HIS people. Lets end by looking at what Christ's words are regarding the evil of abortion and the sanctity of life within the bible. We need to ask HIS forgiveness for those who have ignored these teachings. Ponder in our hearts these words of God that follow in order to discern HIS will as spoken so clearly.

Thus says the Lord; do wha is right and just. Rescue the victim from the hand of his oppressor. Jeremiah 22:3

And my favorite. My marching orders over the past 38 years have come clearly from this:
Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death. Don't stand by and let them die. Don't try to disclaim responsibility by saying you did not know about it, for God who knows all hearts knows yours, and HE knows you knew! and HE will reward everyone according to his deeds. Proverbs 24: 11-12.
Words of great wisdom from HE who loves you more than any earthly creature. Who is with you to love, forgive, and direct you to eternal life. Ignore with the free will God gave us at our own peril.
