This crime is really too horrific to dwell on comfortably, but it is an example of what happens when human life is thought to be cheap. Kermit Gosnell is on trial for the murder of ┬áinfants who survived their late-term abortions. He uses a procedure called snipping which basically involves cutting the baby’s spinal cord with scissors. While this sounds like the stuff of horror movies, it is real life. The acts are not denied. It is more of a matter of whether this behavior is wrong in the eyes of the law. This is a mirror held up for the American people to consider what happens when we say it is okay to kill certain innocent humans. Where do we draw the line? Please go to Colson Center to learn more about what we can do to stop this kind of heinous crime. The documentary about this crime is called 3801 Lancaster… the street address of the clinic.

The Esther Call is a call of repentance. This event will end coinciding with Good Friday and the start of Passover 4/6/12. It is an appeal to Heaven for 54 million babies murdered in our country in the last 39 years. Thirty-nine young women from a variety of ethnic backgrounds (hear their stories) will walk 250 miles from Houston to Dallas, from the largest Planned Parenthood abortion facility in America to the courthouse steps where the original Roe v. Wade papers were filed. From there the 39 young women will walk to a nearby convention center to join thousands of others in a time of solemn prayer for our nation.

If you are interested in this event you can learn more from their website or from the FamilyTalk broadcast where I heard about it.

As teachers why should we be interested? Aren’t we in the education of children business? Would we be having a social security crisis if those aborted babies had grown to adulthood and were paying taxes now? Wouldn’t there be more teaching jobs? When a nation’s birth rate falls below replacement rate, we have what is called a demographic time bomb. Abortion has greatly contributed to many nations falling into a demographic time bomb decline curve. Japan and China are both at different points in this process.

Interestingly, while polls in America and much legislation is pro-life in America now, there is still momentum and money behind the abortion industry. In the Journal of Medical Ethics two Australian doctors argue that post birth abortions should be freely available, basically arguing from a medical point of view that newborns should have no protection under the law. Now while killing newborn babies is abhorrent to most, if we use legalized abortion as a precedent why should there be a difference in taking a life when it is permissible just a few inches away inside the womb?
