This is the landmark case that gave permission for a nation to terminate some 54.5 million pregnancies since 1973. This is an estimate of about 1.2 million abortions yearly. The official numbers of the CDC are elusive since California, New Hampshire and other states have refused to comply with the reporting guidelines. California is estimated to be responsible for up to 23% of all abortions in the US.
Does it really matter? Isn't this just a clump full of cells?
No! Jeremiah was told that he was chosen from the womb...
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Je1:5So God is careful to know every soul being formed within their mother's womb. Yes God knows your name, and has chosen you for a purpose from your mother's womb. He has engraved you upon the palms of his hands God says in Is 49:16 So yes, it does matter!
The amazing and unnerving reality is that Norma McCorvey who was known as Jane Roe has since repented and asked "forgiveness of the millions of women and unborn babies who have experienced the violence of abortion."
Sandra Cano who was known as Doe vs Bolton continues to try to rectify the lies that surrounded her case. She pledges to strive to put an end to abortion. These women came together on March 23, 1997
to sign plaques at the National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga, TN.
Of course there are lots of reasons women make this heart wrenching decision, but regardless of the reason, the reality is that the empty womb goes on to leave a void in her heart forever. No one tells you that. No one tells you about post-abortion syndrome and the feelings that you are sure to encounter. It is estimated that 1 in every 2.5 women have had an abortion.
The tears of these mothers are so bitter. They stream down with the sting of grief and they stain their faces with rivers of love for their unborn child. These tears are seen by our Father and he holds a place of forgiveness for you.
The children's blood has stained our land and brought a grievous judgement upon us. The blood runs down the steps of the Supreme Court where the sacrifice of the children was originated by a lie. The blood has turned into rivers running through our capitol of Washington, DC and covering our soil from sea to sea. Our land is polluted, our waters are turned to wormwood and the cries of innocents are lifted to the heavens.
Lord as a nation we repent. I ask forgiveness for any mother that has made this decision. I ask forgiveness for any doctor, nurse or technician that has assisted in this bloodshed. I ask forgiveness for lying counselors and twisted teachings. Lord I ask for mercy and for peace upon all who are left to live with the absence of their child. In Jesus Holy Name, Amen
