Graphic Image Alert – not for young children to view.
There are many things to blog about these days – the national deficit, the national debt, possible presidential candidates, alternative energy, foreign oil, our failing public education system, turmoil in the Middle East, and wary alliances with Russia and China – just to name a few. However, the recent 41st anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade which legalized abortion in America and having just seen my actively growing child in our first ultrasound forced me to confront the pro-choice vs. pro-life debate once more. But let me do a little history review first.
From the years 1939-1945, it is estimated that nearly 6 million people were exterminated by the Nazi regime in Hitler’s concentration camps. Auschwitz was the largest of these death mills. The people were forced to slave labor while on starvation rations, packed into the gas “showers” to the point where some were even laying on top of the heads of those standing, and many were used in torturous medical experiments. Families were split apart as soon as they arrived at the camp. The children and frail women were immediately sent to the showers, and their bodies were taken to the crematory oven by other prisoners, some of them family members. More than 1 million Jewish people were slaughtered in Auschwitz alone. (http://www.history.com/topics/auschwitz/photos#remembering-the-holocaust) I could go into gruesome detail about the living deaths of the people in Auschwitz, but let me have the pictures speak for themselves.19
As Hitler’s power increased and his sinister plot became more evident, his victims pleaded to the world for intervention. The response? Silence. Denial. Refusal to get involved. Eventually the world did step in, but it was too late for the 6 million voices which had been silenced.
Hindsight has 20/20 vision we all like to say. When we read our history books in class it’s easy to shake our heads and point our fingers in righteous indignation at those who could have changed history but did not. “That will never happen again!” is the comforting mantra of pious Americans. Is that so?
In America there are an estimated 582 abortion clinics (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/12/30/Report-Record-87-Surgical-Abortion-Clinic-Closures-In-2013) and between these clinics over three thousand abortions are performed per day (http://www.all.org/nav/index/heading/OQ/cat/MzQ/id/NjA3OQ/). To put it bluntly, there are 582 death mills in our country where over three thousand babies are being murdered each day. They are either set on fire with a saline solution injected into them, pulled apart piece by piece until the head can be reached and crushed, suctioned alive out of the womb, or partially delivered alive and then have their brains sucked out. Since 1973 over 55 million babies have been legally murdered in America. I could go into more gruesome detail, but I will let the pictures speak for themselves:

Over the past forty-one years the blood of these children, our children! has cried from the ground. Their silent screams are echoing throughout the land, pleading for intervention. The response? Silence. Denial. Refusal to get involved. “It’s too political,” we say. “It’s not happening in my neighborhood,” said with a relieved shoulder shrug. “I don’t agree with abortion, but I can’t judge their situation,” we tactfully murmur. “I am against abortion, but I support a woman’s right to choose,” we safely comment. Tell that to the Jewish mom watching her children suffocate in the gas chambers. Look in the eyes of the Jewish man who has been ripped from the arms of his family, knowing theirs is a certain death, and calmly share your excuses for not getting involved. Declare that to the little baby being brutalized as you refuse to get your hands dirty with political incorrectness. Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you support murder; don’t bother washing your hands; the blood won’t come off until you’re willing to get your hands dirty by shutting down death mills.
