When we repent of sin, God forgives us. If you have had an abortion, Jesus is waiting to take you into his arms in forgiveness and love.

Patriotism and the American Way - Who will help?

 On a plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty reads this section of the famous poem written in 1883 by Emma Lazarus:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

  As we near Presidents Day and the celebration of the birthdays of our two most famous Presidents, I am pondering the meaning, and the cost of, liberty. Presidents Washington and Lincoln were both embroiled in wars which were essentially movements for peace. There would be no peace in America until the colonies were freed from the rule of a foreign king whose interests were not with the people of this continent and so the Declaration of Independence was written and signed in 1776.
  Likewise, there would be no peace in this land until slavery's ugly head was severed and the Emancipation Proclamation was written in 1863. Noticeably, the Revolutionary War and the Civil War raged on after these precious documents were written, but they were catalysts towards the end reward of peace.
  Foreigners have fled foreign soils for many years to come to this dear land of freedom and bravery where anyone willing to work hard can earn a living and ostensibly at least, be free of tyranny.But there are those who can not run or hide or speak for themselves. We have, living among us, unborn babies in mother's wombs.
  Maternity clothing lines and baby outfitting shops cater to those who look forward to and are planning the birth of these babies. Cheerful and bright colors predominate the marketing scene, trying to catch the eye of the buyers for these little ones to be born. On a darker side, there are unborn babies traveling in wombs to seedier destinations. These are babies who will never see a bright color or hear a new musical toy. Their first and only taste of the outside world will be an abortionist's killing tools and chemicals.
   We need a document such as the Emancipation Proclamation or the Declaration of Independence, which embodies the feel of the poem that resides at the Statue of Liberty. This will be a Resolution which publicly unites those who value life in a call for freedom of the unborn. Who is willing to help? I believe we need to do this in two steps. The first step is to write a document which will declare unequivocally that we, as taxpayers will in no way federally fund abortions. Beware, no matter what the political rhetoric may be, they are trying to slip this one in through the side door, even though most taxpayers will not approve.
   The next step is to write a document which will call for the end of all abortions.
   I understand that there are politicians in Washington trying to work this out, but they are in the minority and they need our help. The minority in Washington is representing the majority in the US! The majority in Wash. is representing the minority!
 
   Who is willing to help write the first document which will declare that no taxpayer funds should in any way be used to pay for abortions? I know I am really stepping out on a limb here, but somebody needs to do something! Time really is of the essence. Once the health care reform bill gets passed with ambiguous abortion language this will open the door to federally funded abortions and we, as a nation will never go back.
   Look what happened when the Bible was taken out of public schools. One woman, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, was against the nation and she won. Nobody did anything to stop her. Look at what happened with Roe vs. Wade. This nation stands accountable for 52,000,000 aborted babies. The eyes of God are upon us now. Who will take a stand?
 "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
