January 22, 2008 – LET US STOP THE CHILD KILLING IN AMERICA, NOW!!
35th Anniversary of the infamous and wicked 1973 Supreme Court decision
By Gerald Christian Nordskog, President & Publisher
“YOU SHALL NOT MURDER!” – Deuteronomy 5:17 (Commandment VI)
“Now this is the commandment, and these are the statues and judgments which the Lord your God has commanded to teach you, that you may observe them…. That you may fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life….” – Deuteronomy 6:1-2
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The Days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” – Psalm 139:13-16
“And God said (to Cain), ‘What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.” – Genesis 4:10-11
As of today January 22, the 35th anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court abominable decision Roe v. Wade: an estimated 50 million babies have been aborted (murdered) in and partially-out-of women’s wombs in the U.S.A.
The magnitude of this (fifty million dead babies) represents a population greater than that of any state in the union; greater than California (36 million people); and considerably more than the next two largest states combined (Texas and New York – 23 million and 19 million people respectively).
Today just under 1.3 million babies are killed by their mothers (and fathers) on average every year (it peaked in 1990 at 1.6 million annually). Repeat abortions by women, mostly single, amounts to nearly 600,000 per year, approaching one half the total.
An estimated 3526 abortions per day, based upon statistics from the Alan Guttmacher Institute, research affiliate of Planned Parenthood, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Right to Life (that by Jan. 22 or 23rd) 50 million will have been put to death, voluntarily in the past thirty five years in our land.
Suction curettage represents the methodology of murder in 87.4% of the cases and sharp curettage 1.2%; with chemical abortions (such as RU486), intrauterine instillation and other procedures of destruction totaling10.8% of the baby deaths.
Abortion deaths have claimed more lives than all the world wars in the history of mankind. And as Francis Schaeffer stated so aptly, “life” is by far the most important of human rights; no other rights are of any value if one has no life. Aboritoriums, as Dr. D. James Kennedy calls the abortion mills (chambers) is the scurge of death; an Abomination! As Brian Fisher of Coral Ridge Ministries stated (on Sanctity of Life Sunday’s Coral Ridge Hour TV show) do not refer to it as Pro-Choice as it is a Pro-Death movement. The innocent baby has no choice in the matter. Enough is Enough! states Mr. Fisher. I say Amen to that! Enough is Enough. Wake up, Church in America!!!
The right of life is no longer (since 1973 in America) no longer “unalienable” because an innocent unborn child can be put to death for the convenience of the mother (and father for that matter when the man is involved in the decision).
Christian action necessary, vital, crucial, demanded, NOW!. If Christians are not going to get involved, who will? Most Believers have sat by (or in their pews, or comfort of their homes) idly by too long and ignored (perhaps prayed, thankfully) regarding this major blight and abomination in God’s sight too long: 35 years! Will we ever begin to act and be those who believe in and take seriously God’s Laws – Christ’s character?
A. Pray. Imprecatory Prayers with fasting.
B. Rescue babies at abortion chambers (sidewalk counseling, picketing, praying).
C. Get involved and elect Pro-Life committed candidates at all levels of government; VOTE right. Vote for those who believe in God and His Laws.
D. Support Human Life Amendments around the country as various states, through mainly Christian activism, promotes measures to define fertilized eggs as human beings and to afford them state constitutional protections (such as young 20 year old Kristi Burton is spearheading in Colorado.) — as reported in January 12/19 special anniversary issue – World Magazine.
E. Work to get Congress to support Congressman Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act (H.R. 2597) to limit the appellate jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and federal district courts to prevent them from adjudicating abortion cases. (FYI, in Roe v. Wade the majority ruling opinion (paraphrased) indicated if it were ever proven that life began in the womb, that fetuses (embryos) became human beings, it could nullify their decision.) Since 1973 hasn’t science, with 3D and 4D imaging machines, along with common sense, proven that babies are alive and growing inside the mother’s womb before actual birth? Roe v. Wade should immediately be challenged and nullified.
F. Lead people to Jesus Christ through your witness and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit. As D. James Kennedy affirmed, the more people who become Christians and commit to our Lord, the less abortions will take place, due to obedience to Christ and His command THOU SHALT NOT MURDER!
Now is the time for all of us who believe in God and His Law (and of course, Pro-Life) to step up our activity, with passion, knowing babies are being murdered right in our neighborhoods. What is our response to God’s Sixth Commandment going to be?
P.S. this mandate to rescue babies includes China and its one-child policy to do forced abortions to kill children (in the guise of controlling their over-population). And everywhere in the world. God’s Law applies to ALL people for ALL time and for ALL eternity* – Jerry
