Are you important? Do you think your children important? What about the children all over the world? Are they important? How about those children still in the womb? Are they important?
Unborn Children Are Important
The word tells us that God knew us even before we were born. I don’t think the God of the universe would take time to know someone unless that person was important. So yes, you are important and so are all the born and unborn children in the world. Every life is important to God and of equal value to Him. Rich, poor, tall, short, dark or light!
Life begins at conception. Let’s call it as it is; Abortion is murder. I know this is not politically correct to say it like that, but as Christians, we need to say it as God sees it.
Today marks 45 years of legalized abortion in all fifty states at any time for any reason throughout pregnancy on January 22nd, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
TOTAL ABORTIONS SINCE 1973:60,069,971
Since that time, there have been approximately 60,069,971 abortions that have destroyed the lives of unborn children. Let’s compare that to World War II which was the deadliest military conflict in history in absolute terms of total dead.
Over 60 million people were killed, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population (est. 2.3 billion). I am not talking about the Holocaust victims which were about 6 million Jewish people who died in the hands of the Nazis, but the total people killed in the conflict. If we isolate the Holocaust victims, the comparison of Abortions just in the US alone would tower over these grim statistics.
Some scholars maintain that the definition of the Holocaust should also include the other victims persecuted and killed by the Nazis. Victims that included catholic clergy, Jehovah’s witnesses, Christian missionaries and pastors, the handicapped, and homosexuals. Estimates of the death toll of non-Jewish victims vary by millions, partly because the boundary between death by persecution and death by starvation and other means in a context of total war is unclear.
Using this definition, the total number of Holocaust victims is between 11 million and 17 million people.
Still, in the US alone, we have killed more than 60 million unborn babies in the name of Abortion. In the USA, where nearly half of pregnancies are unintended and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion, there are over 3,000 abortions per day.
Too Many Deaths!
Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion. For those who whould like to understand the magnitude of this human massacre, this represents one unborn baby murdered every 28.8 seconds in the USA. And the numbers are even more staggering when you look at the total estimated babies killed by abortion worldwide. It is calculated that 125,000 unborn babies are being killed every day in the world which means that every 0.69 seconds, an unborn baby is being killed. We need to do something about this and it starts with prayer.
