To Care about the Unborn Child

Followup - October 21. In reference to the below, the very person George and I met with has some practical suggestions for getting involved with the Pro-Life movemement, such as "joining a pro-life group, supporting a local crisis pregnancy centre or encouraging your church to start one. Or, how about getting your church to hold a "Pro-life Sunday" and invite a Christian Pro-life speaker? Also good [for Britons] to mention the BVA (British Victims of Abortion) Helpline for post-abortion counselling and crisis pregnancy advice."

----------------

Yesterday George and I met with a Pro-life advocate here in Britain. It made me realize how little I had cared about this issue. I repent, and hope this apathy will change permanently.

The number of babies being killed is horrendous. Over 6 million (the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust) in Britain alone since abortion was legalized here in 1967. One in three women has had an abortion (not confirmed). This is just Britain. And Christians don't talk about it here.

In Eastern Europe some women have had abortions more than five times. In some places there are far more abortions than births, and in many places abortion is legal *right up until birth* if there is anything "wrong" with the baby. In many Western nations, 80% of pre-born babies known to have Downs syndrome are being aborted. This is like the Holocaust, where everyone deemed less-than-perfect was done away with. We're just doing it earlier.

Another interesting fact: apparently when a mother can see a picture of her unborn child, she is is *far* more likely to keep it.

When a baby is aborted, a human life ends. Every time a mother decides not to abort a baby, she brings a whole new life--for childhood, marriage, family, worshipping and serving God--into the world.

I know this is a sensitive subject, but I just needed to confess my apathy for it, because what is happening is abhorrent. What are the eternal implications??

What can we do? We can do something, and we can start by caring.

God have mercy.
