Big Numbers from Little Ones

An estimated 11,000,000 people died in the Nazi holocaust. About 6,000,000 of those were Jews, about 1,100,000 were children.

Those are big numbers.

The Haitian government estimated 220,000 died in the 2010 earthquake.

Over 5,000 died in the Philippine typhoon last November.

Around 230,000 died in the Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

Big numbers.

When even one person dies, it is a big number to those who loved him.

Where are they?
Where are they?

Here’s another big number: 56,600,000.

Fifty times the number of babies Hitler killed.

That’s how many babies America has killed since Roe v. Wade.

God had a plan for each one of them. He loved each one.

Abortion terminates the lives of human beings with souls, with beating hearts, with digesting stomachs–babies recoiling in pain, desperately trying to escape their killers. Yet their killers claim they are not really taking a life. How can they honestly say that?

If a coroner checks for absence of a heartbeat to determine death, shouldn’t the presence of a heartbeat prove there is life?

We must continue to pray and to repent .We must not become weary in this battle for life. We must continue to speak out, raise our voices, and vote to protect the innocent; but above all, to pray. We are not fighting flesh and blood–this is a spiritual battle and our prayers are more powerful than politicians and judges.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31: 8-9

The pro-abortion crowd screams about freedom of choice, saying, “IT’S MY BODY!”

What about the baby’s body?
Who will cry out for the baby?

While you go about your business, today, 4,400 more innocent people will be submitted to capital punishment, although they have committed no crime and have had no trial, no attorney, no basic rights we’d give even to a prisoner of war.

Not only will they be denied the basic anesthesia even a veterinarian would use, but also, they will be ripped to pieces and injected with toxins.

Four thousand, four hundred times, today.

That’s a big number.
