A Pro-Abortion Mindset
“No more children should be born when the parents, though healthy themselves, find that their children are physically or mentally defective. No matter how much they desire children, no man and woman have a right to bring into the world those who are to suffer from mental or physical affliction. It condemns the child to a life of misery and places upon the community the burden of caring for it, probably for its defective descendants for many generations.—Margaret Sanger”1
“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:16-17; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Sanger’s words above are part of the root of the modern-day abortion movement. Thank the Lord for every single child, healthy or not.
Declare that God has a destiny for every life He creates. He makes no mistakes.
Declare that every life has value and purpose.
Pray for any parents you know who have children with disabilities.
Think of a way you can do something kind to let a parent with a challenged child know they are supported.
Ask God for laws that protect the unborn from selective abortion.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, Margaret Sanger’s words above are shocking! It is very clear that Sanger believed, from ideas rooted in eugenics, that any person not “perfect” has no right to live. That is not how You feel. You love and value every life and we Believers are to value every life, as well. We are to come around the struggling and assist them in their circumstances. Encourage parents with disabled children, Jesus. (Pray for thse you know.) Show them how loved they are. Whisper acts of kindness I can do to help lighten their day a bit. Intervene supernaturally to get laws passed that prevent selective abortions of any kind. Amen.
I decree that every life has value and U. S. law will protect each life from selective abortion!
