For You and for Them

I have been seeing article after article posted on my Facebook News Feed today about the undercover video that was just released showing a Planned Parenthood executive casually over lunch, sipping her wine, discuss partial-birth abortion and the profitable selling of these children's organs and limbs. It causes me to shudder to even write about such a gruesome thing, but there is no possible way to make abortion sound prettier than what it truly is.

This is America, this is my country? These are our fellow Americans who are being literally torn apart in their mother's wombs... all in the name of "choice," all for the almighty dollar.

What causes my stomach to churn the most is thinking of my little Lily, my cherished daughter, who passed away just before being born at term in 2010.

You see, these babies are Lily. Whether they are treasured like her (or your child) or not doesn't determine their worth or right to life. They are the same. They are her brothers and sisters of the womb. And so when I think of them being killed and sold for profit, I feel outraged, I feel disgusted, I feel devastated. It makes my blood boil to think of their value being diminished, as if they aren't real, as if they don't matter. Killing them is sheer evil, but then add in selling their body parts into the mix, and you have evil at an entire new level. These precious little bodies have had all dignity stripped away from them.

How much is it going to take to wake us up? What are we going to do about it? Are we simply going to get mad and then do nothing? Or will we allow the passion caused by this great injustice to move us to action?

My fellow Christians... my fellow Americans - I don't care what your political affiliation is, how can you hear about what is going on on our own soil, right under our noses, and not care? This is what abortion truly looks like. NOW is the time to stand firm, NOW is the time to be a voice for these voiceless ones who are crying out for a rescuer.

Father, infuse courage into the hearts of men and women facing crisis pregnancies. Give boldness and passion to people to do what it takes to see abortion end in America and the world. Reveal the truth to hearts so hardened by lies.

What are YOU going to do about it?? We are here for such a time as this. And I count it a great honor and responsibility to be able to speak up for the least of these.

My Lily - I will spend my life sharing your value. Each one of your brothers and sisters in the womb are precious and irreplaceable and my heart aches for others to recognize this. I will never stop sharing... for you... for them.
