For You have formed my inward parts; You have covered me in my mother's womb...Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.
-- Psalm 139:13,16 (NKJV)
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
-- Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
Thousands came from all over the United States to participate in the annual March for Life in Washington DC on January 22, 2002. It has now been 29 years since the Supreme Court issued a ruling that gave approval and legal sanction to the destruction of an unborn child in the womb for any excuse whatsoever!
Perhaps what makes the 02-01-22 event a bit different is that just a few months ago a little over 3,000 persons lost their lives in carefully planned and executed plans on the part of terrorists against the United States. The president and the nation were outraged, with elaborate plans made to pursue war against all terrorists even to the ends of the earth!
What is most disturbing in this is the fact that our president pays some lip service and expresses some degree of concern for the unborn and the abortion on demand issue but gives no indication of being nearly as agressive in dealing with the fact that there are more unborn destroyed in acts of violence on any given work day in this nation than the number of lives lost in the terrorists' attacks of 01-09-11 -- he wasted no time in taking action to deal with terrorists and their planned violence against U.S. citizens! Why not some aggressive action against the U.S. Supreme Court approved "terrorists" who destroy future U.S. citizens while they are still in the womb?
Anyway, someone has taken the time to write an appropriate tribute to the more than 40 million victims of the United States' version of holocaust!
On Turning 29...
This week I turn 29.
It's hard to believe. How time flies. January 22, 1973 seems like so long ago. I'm the oldest in my family. Itís a pretty big family, but I'll explain that later.
If you're a boomer, you probably don't think much of my generation -- Gen X. But that's because we're a threat to you! My generation is changing the world! Just think of all that has happened in the world these past 29 years...
The end of Vietnam. Watergate. Jimmy Carter. Actually, I don't remember much from the 70s, since I was just entering elementary school when Ronald Reagan became president.
I loved the 80s. That's when I grew up, but I had no idea just how much the world was changing.
Then, the Berlin Wall fell. I'll never forget that day in November. 1989. I was 16 and on top of the world. I can remember my history teacher telling me that the world would never be the same. He was right.
Then, something even more dramatic developed. The Internet. If you want to understand me and my generation, then go online. When I was in college, a few of my friends saw it coming. We helped start a revolution online. And don't believe it when they say the Internet bubble has burst. The only thing that has burst is the old way of doing business.
Now, I'm working on my third business startup -- all before age 30. Not bad, eh? I got married three years ago, and we're expecting our first child in three months. A new generation begins...
Except for one problem.
You see, I wasn't actually born on January 22, 1973. In fact, I wasn't born at all.
I never was given the chance to take even that first breath - never mind then 381 million breaths that would have followed over these 29 years.
Not a single breath.
That's because of something else that happened on January 22, 1973.
Seven Supreme Court justices made a decision that would dramatically affect my life - and the lives of 40 million others who would never take a breath.
That's my family. And it's growing every day. In fact, in the next 24 hours the family of abortion victims will grow by about as many people who died when the Trade Center buildings collapsed.
The cleanup from 9/11 continues. And so does the clean up from 1/22/73.
And to think it was all based on a lie. Jane "Roe" of Roe v. Wade was lied to. And so were you - if you believed even for a moment that the mass of tissue wasn't a human life.
That mass of tissue was I!
My goal here isn't to make you feel guilty. Rather, think of me - or what could have been me - the next time the topic of abortion comes up.
Think of me graduating from high school and going to college. Think of me getting married and having children. Think of me celebrating my birthday with family and friends.
Think of me turning 29.
