Think About The Babies

Psalm 139:13-16

13 

For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother’s womb.

14 

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works,

And my soul knows it very well.

15 

My frame was not hidden from You,

When I was made in secret,

And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

16 

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;

And in Your book were all written

The days that were ordained for me,

When as yet there was not one of them.

Exodus 20:13

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 “You shall not murder.”

Let us not remain silent. Let us speak up for the babies that are being murdered every day and every year. They have no voice but we can be their voice. Let us get to the polls and speak up for the innocent so they may live to do something great for God.

  1. Very interesting post here. I get so riled up over abortion that I usually can't touch on it at all on my blog. I hate that they say it's about giving the woman “choice” over her body. She made her choice, not it's about letting the child live. Ah, I'm getting too heated, but still I appreciate this post and your taking a stand on the issue. Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!

  2. Thank you Shelia for this wonderful post. It's an issue a lot of people stay silent on for fear of what other will say. I am in agreement with you. By the way, I sent you and email about the glasses, did you get it?
