Today, Jan 22,2010 is the 37th anniversary of the date mass murder of babies in the United States began – one that makes Pharoah efforts to wipe out the male Hebrew babies in ancient Egypt, look like miniscule. Here are some links to visit:
According to The Guttmacher Institute:
There are approximately some 42 million abortions a year worldwide with some 1.37 million of those happening in America.
Since 1973 though to 2008 45 million induced abortions have been performed in the US.
Think abortions are limited to non Christians? Think again. According to The Gutmacher Institute’s studies, 43% of abortions are to women who identify themselves as Protestant, while 27% are performed on Catholic women.
The greatest incidence of abortions occur among the poor.
It’s a tragedy. A holocaust really. And we wonder why we’re having so many issues in America?

Overturning and Undermining Roe v. Wade: An Interview with Clarke Forsythe (via Justin Taylor)
Why should Roe v. Wade be overruled?
It authorizes the homicide of the unborn child as national policy, a national “right.” It means abortion on demand nationwide as a practical matter, and it is an unjust, unconstitutional usurpation of the people’s right of self-government to decide the abortion issue, as the people decide other controversial issues, through the normal processes of representative government.
An excerpt from Richard Hays on Abortion (via Seth Ehorn)
Abortion is an extraordinarily challenging test case, because it is a major ethical issue not addressed explicitly by any NT texts at all. Thus, our opinions on the NT trajectory and the appropriation of any NT ethic on abortion should be met with humility about our claims and sensitivity to the task at hand. Hays will include some relevant OT texts because they inform the issue and are cited in the debate (although his book is mainly about the NT).
Well, it’s something to ponder. May God have mercy on us all!
