1. Abortion is the “sacrifice” of the unborn. "They sacrificed their sons and their daughters”
2. The unborn are family, our sons and daughters. “They sacrificed their sons and their daughters”
3. Abortion sheds innocent blood. “They shed innocent blood”
4. The innocent blood of the aborted is sacrificed to demons. “They sacrificed…to demons.”
Eric Holmberg & Jay Rogers, in their work, Massacre of Innocence, summarize, “The spiritual heritage of the Moabites and the Ammonites is passed down to our own day through abortion. Today the church is fighting against those same spiritual forces for the very survival of our nation.”
The writer of Proverbs said something very similar, (Proverbs 24:10-12a)
"Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death;
Don’t stand back and let them die.
Don’t try to avoid responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it."
On January 20, 2011, Rev. Flip Benham of Operation Save America issued the following statement in a press release.
"...the time is now, for the Church to rise up and not wait for political parties, or the president, or Congress, or the Supreme Court to take care of the issue. It is our responsibility. The gates of hell will not prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ. Abortion will come to an end, when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end not a second sooner. The responsibility for ending abortion in America rests squarely upon the shoulders of the Church of Jesus Christ.”
I think he's right.
Unborn children are our neighbors.
