Abortion in America

Posted: January 13, 2011 in abortion, america, justice, politics

In a recent post, Al Mohler offers some truly tragic statistics regarding the prevalence of abortion in the United States.  He writes,

“The enormity of the abortion rate in America underlines the fact that abortion is anything but rare. Over 1.2 million abortions were performed in the United States in 2008, the last year with full numbers reported.

This means that abortion is taking place in your neighborhood and in mine. The abortion rate in New York City staggers the moral imagination, but the abortion rate nationwide is itself ‘chilling.'”

But don’t just stop there.  Read the whole article.  And pray that the church, God’s holy people (1 Pet. 2:9-10), would be empowered by Him to take a stand for justice.

“What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the LORD; I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed beasts; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats. … Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” – Isaiah 1:11, 16-17

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” – James 1:27
