What Can We Do About Abortion?

“Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest single provider of abortions, yet it gets millions of dollars in federal funding…” **

As we sadly go through the yearly tax process, many of us see thousands of dollars leave our bank accounts and make its way into the hands of the federal government.  There are portions of the federal government we really appreciate and other parts that can make one’s skin crawl with frustration.    

 

 

~ SAD FACT ~

 

One million plus children murdered by abortion (every year in the USA) is a very sad fact. 

“Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended, and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion.  Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion. Forty percent of pregnancies among white women, 69% among blacks and 54% among Hispanics are unintended.  In 2008, 1.21 million abortions were performed.” [READ MORE]

What makes matters worse is the fact that some of our hard earned money is used to fund these murders (abortions).   

“I would assume that most Americans would be surprised, if not shocked, to learn that the largest abortion provider in America is also the largest recipient of federal funding under Title X,” Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) said in January when he introduced legislation to strip Planned Parenthood of its federal funding. Title X is the federal family planning program.” **

“It is the biggest abortion franchise in the nation. One in 10 of its clients receive abortions,” Dannenfelser said on NPR’s Talk of the Nation last month. “A quarter of abortions occurring in this nation are performed by Planned Parenthood clinics.” [READ MORE]  **

Children are very important to Jesus (God).  History has proven that He is able to use children who are planned or not to do amazing things for His eternal kingdom.

“Then little children were brought to Him, that He should put His hands on them and pray. And the disciples rebuked them.  But Jesus said, Allow the little children to come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 19:13, 14).

What can we do?  Write your state senator and other government officials and kindly ask them to work towards restricting federal funds for organizations that perform abortions.  Let us make sure we do not dance through life with blinders on… just hoping do not have to take a bold stance of anything that might make us feel uncomfortable.
