One tragic sign of the times in Pagan America is the shedding of innocent blood. On Jan. 22, 1973, the machinery was set in motion which began what is surely the darkest period of our history as a nation. On that date, the United States Supreme Court declared the unborn to be non-persons with no rights under the constitution. According to those liberal, ungodly, men, in a capricious and arbitrary decision, the mother could murder her unborn for any excuse through the first trimester of gestation. Further, with the consent of a doctor, the unborn can be murdered up to any time before the umbilical cord is severed.
By the capricious whim of of seven men in 1973, the machinery was set in motion which has produced the greatest pandemic in the history of the world. The soil of our nation is soaked with the innocent blood of the unborn, and with no reprieve in sight. Multitudes of citizens will go before God at Judgment with blood on their hands.
God sent His people into captivity for 70 years because of the shedding of innocent blood. Surely, the words of the prophet to Israel are just as true about modern America; “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind…” (Hos. 8:7a). Centuries later, James wrote to spiritual Israel, “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you…Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you” (Jas. 5:1, 6).
It is not only the mothers and doctors who are causing the abortions and are guilty of murder, but the politicians who vote taxpayer money to fund abortions, the Supreme Court Judges, the people who put political party above principle, the wild eyed radicals who lobby for murder, the liberal media who push the agenda of abortionists, and masses of people who simply refuse to take a stand for truth.
The Hippocratic Oath, which all doctors once took before practicing medicine, reads in part:
I will follow the system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and refrain from whatever in deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce an abortion. With purity and with holiness, I will pass my life and practice my Art (The Oath; Great Books of the Western World, 1952, Vol. 10, p. 23).
Hippocrates was born in 420 BC. He was an idol worshiper and was a heathen, yet how far below the standard he set for himself and other ancient physicians have those in modern medicine fallen who routinely murder the unborn! I do not paint all doctors with the same brush, for there are many doctors who refuse to perform abortions. But for many of them, the Hippocratic Oath is now the Hypocritical Oath.
Since that dark day of Jan. 22, 1973, some 62 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone. Only God knows how many have been performed in the world, but God has marked each one in His book of remembrance. The Bible says, For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb. 10:30-31).
Each minute of each hour of each day of each week, babies are murdered at the rate of 1,206,192 each year at the hands mothers and abortionists in the U.S. Alone. It staggers the imagination and sickens one to contemplate this horror in our “enlightened” society.
In February, 1981, a private pathology laboratory in Los Angeles, which collected aborted babies for disposal, fell behind in payments on its 20 foot-long storage container. It was repossessed and when workers came to haul it off they were horrified to see the headless body of an infant spill to the ground. The stench of rotting flesh and formaldehyde overwhelmed some of the workers and some of them vomited. Inside the container, they found the bodies of some 17,000 unborn infants. A few of the babies were well formed, some of them certainly past the 22-week cutoff point for legal abortion in California.
Editor’s Note: In 2001 an Oklahoma City doctor, who operated an abortion clinic and murdered hundreds of babies, was charged with first degree murder in the death of his wife. In the years he operated his clinic, there was no media coverage of his documented murders of the unborn but the alleged murder of his wife made sensational headlines. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa. 5:20). Since 1980, 1.6 Billion babies have been murdered in the womb, worldwide.
