50,000,000...a big number!

50,000,000
50,000,000 is big number. Consider the following facts:
  • 50,000,000 days =137,000 years
  • 50,000,000 feet=9,450 miles
  • 50,000,000 people=roughly 5 times the population of Michigan (10,045,697)
  • 50,000,000=the number of babies aborted since January 22, 1973 when Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in all fifty states, at any time, for any reason!

For the last 37 years we've been killing our future! Who knows how much good all these babies could be doing today? How many expert lawyers, genius doctors, or other revolutionary minds has our society forfeited benefiting from because they didn't have a choice to live? We'll never know...

I know that this a broad issue and I won't try to touch on everything, but I want to talk for a moment on when a baby becomes a baby. Some people try to make the argument that a baby becomes a baby when (or shortly before) the baby is born.

The next question becomes what does "shortly" mean? Is it at 8 months? Seven? Well, I was born at six months along and I was "100%" baby!

The Bible says:

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee." (Jeremiah 1:5)

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." (Psalm 139:14)

God ordained life, and we should support life and be willing reach out to women in crises and to share life affirming solutions. For more info go to http://www.rtl.org/

"Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should therefore be slaves. Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide."
~ Ronald Reagan – Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation ~

Thanks for your heart for the unborn children, more need to see them as such. Have you seen the movie called "Come What May"? It deals with the issue of valuing life beginning at conception, and Roe V Wade. Everyone should see that.

If we are going to find what is right we need to keep asking those tough questions.
