Today is Sanctity of Life Saturday as we remember that 38 years ago today our Supreme Court decided against the sanctity of human life in favor of a woman's right to choose, hence legalizing abortion on demand... even as a form of birth control.
Historically, in 1983, President Reagan issued a proclamation creating a special day to focus on the sanctity of human life and the fundamental right to life. National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is held on the Sunday in January that falls closest to the day on which the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.

Here are the facts:
FACTS ON ABORTION AND RELATED ISSUES
(AUGUST 2010)
Abortion in the U.S.
Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended, and 4 in 10 of these end in abortion.In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were performed, down from 1.6 million in 1990, a 25% decrease. The abortion rate decreased 9% from 2000 - 2005 to 19.4 abortions for every 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44. From 1973 through 2005, more than 45 million abortions occurred. At current rates, about one-third of women in the U.S. will have had an abortion by age 45.
After the horrendous report that came out of the Philadelphia abortion clinic regarding the governor's ceasing of regulations of clinics throughout Pennsylvania, The American Family Association has been tracking this development and is making it very easy for us to contact our own governors to plead the case for proper state regulatory action at least to insure humane abortions in the future.
I am all for the human right to choose, but to choose responsibly... before the act of conception... for more on this topic this site has more thoughtful discussion. There is a wonderful poem written by the author of this site which demonstrates my feelings on the topic. They say now that since 1973 over 50 million babies have been aborted.
To me this is a huge sin of our nation... a sin against God for we are created in His image. How long will God sit idle before His full wrath is brought upon us,,, for God is a mighty judge of the nations. Please pray with me for those women who are thinking of and deciding now to choose abortion... pray also for the miracle of our nation repenting and turning back to God, repealing this heinous aberration, and choosing instead to value life, protect the innocent, and live wisely as before the Almighty who is faithful to forgive the truly repentant heart.

  3. G'morn ~ We went to an abortion meeting to help stamp it out ... how ever can anyone, Dr. or otherwise, ever desire to snuff out God's perfect creations, life of baby ... I cry when I know that all the lives are given for such selfish evil reasons. They all sit at the feet of Jesus, blessed.

    Great share, thank you.

    Have a beautiful PS weekend ~
    TTFN~
