March For Life 2008

Another year has passed, and we have attended the March for Life yet again. Since last year, the number of babies slaughtered in the womb has been downgraded to approximately 3,000 per day. That's 1,095,000 human lives snuffed out at the hands of the abortionists. Could you imagine if this was the number of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan every year, how people would be up in arms, demanding an immediate ceasefire? It would be the lead story on the news every night, with congress calling for the president's impeachment, criminal charges being filed against the commanders in the field, and massive protests in this country?

Those being murdered in the womb aren't considered human; they're not even considered sub-human. They're nothing but "blobs of tissue", who are leaching off women and must be destroyed.

Mother Theresa said it best on February 3, 1994, during the National Prayer Breakfast. Two of her quotes come to mind:

But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

From the end of her speech:

If we remember that God loves us, and that we can love others as He loves us, then America can become a sign of peace for the world.

From here, a sign of care for the weakest of the weak - the unborn child - must go out to the world. If you become a burning light of justice and peace in the world, then really you will be true to what the founders of this country stood for. God bless you!

How right she is!
