~ The Least of These ~
I am burdened...I have been thinking about the American election lately as it is just around the corner.
So many Christians seem torn on the issues. I don't know all the ins and outs of the politicians, I don't have the time to follow it all. Yes, I agree McCain is not a shining example of Christianity.
However, I do know him and I share the same stance on abortion.
Here in Canada, being a socialist country, we have exactly what Obama is offering Americans, free abortion on demand. This means late term, partial- birth abortions. NO restrictions.
It's so difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that in the same hospitals we give birth to our beautiful new little ones, that on just another floor FULL-term babies are being ripped from their mothers wombs, tortured, killed, or left to die. This IS legal here in Canada.
If the ban is lifted in the States, which is Obamas plan, than it will be IL-legal to even save, or rescue a baby who has survived an abortion. (this does happen)
If you are unfamiliar with Gianna Jessens story, go read it, watch her you- tube video. Compelling stuff. I actually saw her speak when she was a teenager. Her story is amazing. She is a product of a late term abortion. Left to die, burned, struggling to breathe with a will to survive, a nurse rescued her and took her home.
To my American readers, spend some time researching this, read others thoughts.
Take a couple of minutes and watch below. (turn off music in my sidebar)
My Canadian email friend Stephanie says:
"Please stop and think about this one thought. Abortion is the defining moral issue of our day, decade, century. Last century it was slavery. A few decades ago, it was the Holocaust, and the extermination of Jews.
Abortion may not be the only issue, but it is the moral issue that defines us as a culture (and in saying us, I am referring not just to your country, but to all of Western civilization)"
And ladies, join me, Pray...pray hard.
These are dark days... may God help us.
