MLK and the fight for Life


Sunday was National Sanctity of Life Day. It happens every year, on the closest Sunday to January 22, when the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide in Roe v. Wade.

For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
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

Both of these causes—pro-life and civil rights—hinge on the fact that God made each of us and loves us all. He expects us to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. As Martin Luther King, Jr. heroically fought for the rights of African-Americans, let us fight for the unborn children who are being ruthlessly murdered through abortion. Just do what God wants you to.

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.
~Psalm 24:10-11
