It is time for a change. A change for Life. A change for Justice. A change for those that can NOT speak for themselves. A change to do that which, we know is right in the sight of God and mankind. A change that is fair, balanced but for the right reasons NOT for self centered reasons. It is time for a change and the time is now.
Mankind makes bad decisions everyday without having a legal right to do so. Why than just give them a free pass to make one whenever they feel like it? That’s what we will be doing if we don’t take the time to stand up for those that can’t make a real choice if their lives depended on it. Those people that would rather listen to a friend, or worse yet not try to see what options are available to them, other than taking an innocent life.
No change today, no change tomorrow, no change next week, no change next month. No change in this election, will mean millions of innocent lives will have no choice of their own. No choice to speak for themselves. There is no time like the present and mostly, there is no time to waist.
So I ask you, how much time do you need to do what is right for future generations of your own bloodline. Yes, your human immortality will be at jeopardy. Is that your will? Is that what you want for your children and grandchildren? Your great grandchildren? Even your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandchildren? I used 14 great grand children because that is the number in the genealogy of life from the beginning to the birth of Jesus Christ himself.
Just think what the world would be like, if someone in His genealogy had had an abortion anywhere along the line. Isn’t it time to be a real man, a real woman that has love for life and not free will to take life. Yes there is a choice and Jesus is waiting to see what choice you will make.
Would you condone murder by looking the other way? What if it was a member of your family that was murdered and a friend saw the whole thing happen and decided NOT to get involved. How would that make you feel. We see it most everyday play out in other peoples lives but it yet has hit close to home for many of us. Many of us to even care, that is.
Should that stop you from feeling sorrow for those that have lost their lives? We’ll whats the difference than of having the right to have an abortion, just because you don’t want the child? The bible states – Thou shall not kill but what is abortion then if not killing?
The answers are in you, and the question is, isn’t it time for you to do something about it. It’s not just a Christian issue, it is an issue about where humanity with be 25 or 50 years from now. That is if you don’t take the time to do what you know is right. Just remember what might be right for one person, may not be right for all persons. Weather it is their right or not…
