In the United States, from 1973 to 2008 over 53,310,000 unborn babies have been killed (aborted). (see here) We cut up, suffocate and burn our own children! We are just as bad, if not worse than those people of ancient past.
How does this happen in a land of so many Christians? I think the answer is found toward the end of a speech given by a young boy named Anthony Irsik. Irsik said, “I would like to leave a thought with you from Dr. Bernard Nathanson. Dr. Nathanson was one of the founders of the abortion movement. He helped provide 75,000 abortions, one of them being his very own child. He later became a pro-life movement leader. Nathanson explained to the public how he got abortion legislation passed. ‘We knew that the biggest obstacle in our way was not going to be the government or the media or academia. We knew we had those and could easily get those on our side. The biggest obstacle was going to be the church … (Abortionists) never would have gotten away with what (they) did had (churches) been united, purposeful and strong.’”
The Christian church needs to stand together to protect the right to life of the unborn. And if you are a member of a church or denomination which actively promotes and aids the killing of unborn children, you need to stand against them, stop supporting them and get out from their authority. (see a run down of denominations’ positions on abortion here)
As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America you should know where your church stands on abortion. You should find out if the ELCA is one of those churches that has made it possible for over 53 million babies to be slaughtered.
Check out this Exposing the ELCA page to find out more about the ELCA’s position on abortion. It is apparent to me that the ELCA has blood on their hands.
