"…And she smiles at the future." ~Proverbs 31:25

Time to speak up

Ronald Reagan once said, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”

I often wonder how people can defend abortion without stopping to think: What if that had been my child? my mom? my husband? my best friend? me? Would it really have been OK to eliminate that person from society because they were inconvenient/imperfect/fill-in-the-blank-with-whatever-else?

More than 50,000,000 American babies in less than 40 years…slaughtered.

Who might they have been?

What might they have done?

Why do we still not get it? With ease we criticize the Nazis, then turn around and scream out, “God bless the USA!” Are we blind to what’s really happening here?

We tend to focus a lot on the latter part of Proverbs 31–“The Worthy Woman.” But there are some other really important verses in that chapter, too:

Open your mouth for the mute,
For the rights of all the unfortunate.

Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.

(Proverbs 31:8-9)

The world says, “Speak up for women’s rights!” God says to speak up for the rights of those who cannot speak for themselves.

The world says, “Don’t judge!” God says to judge righteously.

The world says, “To each his own!” God says we need to defend each other.

Are you willing to defend those who cannot speak for themselves? To set aside worry and fear and attempt to do things God’s way? Let me hear your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Thank you, Amy! Sharing your post now.

  2. Well said, Amy! I have the voting ballot ready to fax tonight. I will speak for those who cannot speak! Thank you for reminding everyone that it isn´t about our rights. It is about His will.

    • Oh, Lucinda, I am so thankful for people like you. So many won’t vote even when it’s convenient. Others, like you, WILL vote, even when it’s not. Hugs!

  3. Thank you, Amy for your words for such clear understanding.

  4. Dana Martin said:

    Regardless of what anyone will or might have become, the fact remains that life comes from God and we don’t have the right to stand in His place. So whoever and whatever a person becomes should never replace the fact that God has allowed them to come into the world, otherwise their conception would not have occured. Humanism is prideful and arrogant and seeks to stand in the place of God.

    • Dana, thanks for your good thoughts. I absolutely agree that the sanctity of human life “is what it is” because God said so. I was hoping that even people who don’t share our values might try to think of it in a more personal way than “a woman’s choice.” It’s a baby–a human being with personality and potential.

  5. Good post, Amy

  6. Very well said, Amy. It is a heart-breaker that more and more women are voting for the person who will give them ‘a choice’, when it’s not their choice to make in the first place. Thank you for putting your voice out there. Many blessings to you!
