Abortion: What are we doing about it?

Dear Editor:

I am shocked that we have allowed abortion to go this far.

When before in our nation’s history did we legally allow the murder of over 3,000 of our children a day? When did we last give someone the so-called “right” to have power over another individual to decide if they die or live?

We hear in our churches and amongst our friends that abortion is a bad thing, and that over 56 million precious lives have been lost to its cause, but what are we doing about it?

We ignore it.

We turn our back to the truth and deceive ourselves into believing that everything is OK. Well, it’s not. Everything is far from OK.  Mass murder is happening in our country, and we care more about the next movie coming out than we care about more than 3,000 little babies die each day. And no, it is no excuse to say you are “personally” pro-life, but you would not push it on someone else.

If you are personally pro-life, you are not pro-life at all. To be pro-life is to care about the over 56 million babies that have died. You do not care about those babies if you will not “push your belief on someone else.”

It is time to stop playing the blame game. Something has got to change. Can you imagine if everyone in our nation who cares about the lives of millions of babies gathered together and started actually practicing what we preach? It would be amazing. It would be revival.

How can we make this change? You may feel like your voice is small, but it is not. As an American, you have a voice, and there are many options on how to voice it.

But don’t just read this and go back to what you were doing. That is why babies are dying. Do something. Babies’ and women’s lives depend on it.
