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.
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!
