America's #1 Killer
There is currently at work in our nation a most dangerous killer. It consistently takes more lives than any disease, famine, or war we have ever faced.
Every month this killer takes more American lives than were lost in the entire Vietnam War. Every six months more die from its relentless onslaught than in all our previous wars combined or in all the fatal automobile accidents of the past twenty years. Every 2-3 years it claims more victims than the Nazi Holocaust.
Incredibly, this monumental devastation is carried out by medical professionals and is completely preventable.
The name of this vicious serial killer is ABORTION.
God will not hold this nation guiltless for this great bloodbath. Indeed, the Bible tells us that He hates "hands that shed innocent blood" (Prov. 6:16-17). Certainly there can be none more innocent than the unborn.
Abortion advocates ignore these innocent victims of abortion. Testimony given at U.S. government sponsored public hearings indicated that in the so-called family planning clinics: "The baby is dehumanized as much as possible by being termed a 'blob', 'products of conception' or 'uterine contents'. Not even the term fetus is used by counsellors".
God, however, has a different view of the unborn. He told the prophet Jeremiah, "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." (Jer. 1:5)
He said of John the Baptist: "For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb." (Luke 1:15)
Clearly, God views the unborn as human and precious.
From the human standpoint man does not know the potential of the life that is blotted out by abortion. Had abortion been legalized and condoned in earlier times, the world would no doubt have lost the contribution of some of the greatest minds and talents.
A professor at the UCLA Medical School presented the following case history to his students: A woman who suffers from tuberculosis is pregnant. Her husband has syphilis. There are three children in the family. One is blind, another deaf, and the other suffers tuberculosis. Yet, another child died in infancy. Under the circumstances, most of the students recommended an abortion. They were then informed by their Professor: "Congratulations, you've just killed Beethoven!"
