This week bookends the birthday of a man with a great cause, Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fight for civil rights, and the Right to Life March that peaceably protests on the largest and ongoing holocaust of all time–abortion.
Monday, January 17, we celebrated the MLK holiday and Friday, January 21, the annual March for Life is scheduled in Washington, D. C. Martin Luther King believed in both “rights” found in the Declaration of Independence–the right to life and the right of liberty.
It’s time to reject a whopper of a lie.
When abortion became legal nationwide on January 22, 1973, I was oblivious to Roe v. Wade–being a naive 19 year-old, living in New Zealand and looking for God’s plan for my life.
Soon thereafter, I became educated and burdened. I began to pray against the abortion holocaust and participated in marches in Washington, D.C.–some with upwards of 100,000 in attendance.
Yet, abortion remained the law of the land for decades despite an estimated 60 million babies being slaughtered on the altars of the Sexual Revolution.
That may be about to change.
It’s what we’ve prayed for for 46 years.
