Extreme Abortion Law: Celebrating Infanticide?

63 Million Babies Killed

Since the passage of Roe vs Wade legalized abortion on demand in 1973, an appalling 63+ million babies have been killed in the US alone. Certainly anyone can understand that unintended pregnancy is a daunting, life-changing experience, but the killing of 63+ million babies on demand by the abortion industry? Indefensible. It is the equivalent of the killing of a whole generation; almost as many as died in WW II. This statistic speaks volumes about the lucrative abortion industry as a whole, one that takes advantage of vulnerable women and ends the life of precious babies. 

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." Jeremiah 1:5

'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart...'

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."


strong>Abortion Up Until Birth
New York recently passed a bill, the Reproductive Health Care Act, legalizing abortion of babies up until the hour of birth. Abortions there can now be performed without a physician present, or regulations to ensure the mother's safety. This bill reverses many of the precautions and protections for the mothers, promotes abortion on demand for virtually any reason, and most importantly, mortally endangers baby's lives through infanticide. The passage of this new law in NY, more than a few other states are planning to follow suit in a sort of domino effect including OR, RI, NM, VT, VA, and CA, among others. 

Upon passage of this new, 'progressive' infanticide legislation in NY, there was great jubilation, revelry, and celebration in the legislature, and the streets, by Governor Cuomo, and others and across the US. Surreal as it was to witness via mainstream and social media, prominent buildings in NYC were lit up in bright pink to commemorate this new infanticide law, bringing to mind the following scripture:  "12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men... 14 who delight in doing wrong, and, rejoice in the perverseness of evil..." Proverbs 2:12-15 (NIV)

Abortions in NY Surpass Live Births

There is much money changing hands within the abortion industry. According to Planned Parenthood, women pay approximately $1000. for an abortion, but other places may charge as much as $10,000 for an abortion. There is also a cost associated with having the remains of abortion disposed of. Baby parts are often sold for top dollar on the black market, and are then 'recycled,' used by medical researchers and for some vaccines. 

Some news reports say that in New York City, there are now more abortions than live births. In a very real sense, we are all witnesses to this reprehensible, new extreme pro-abortion law promoting infanticide of unwanted babies. This legislation does not bode well for women, babies, or our country, and it is not 'health care.' Rather, it is life and death. It is time for Americans with a conscience to speak up and speak out boldly on behalf of vulnerable women and their unborn babies, and to pray for an end to infanticide before this heinous practice of extreme abortion takes root.
