Rescue those being taken off to death, and save those stumbling toward slaughter. Proverbs 24:11 HCSB
The state of Kentucky just passed a new law requiring that all women desiring an abortion must first have an ultrasound. Kentucky has also passed legislation banning all abortions after 20 weeks. This is a reversal from current policies that did not require an ultrasound and allowed abortions up to very late in the pregnancy.
This verse in Proverbs reminds us that all of life, from conception until death, is valuable and important. Therefore life is worth protecting at all stages. The unborn child that is being aborted is being taken off to death. If at all possible, we are to rescue the babies who are being slaughtered. There are people we encounter every day who are not Christians and who are stumbling toward eternal separation from God. We must share the Good News and rescue them from death.
Challenge: Pray for women who are considering having an abortion. Consider supporting a Choose Life clinic that is trying to save children from abortion. Volunteer your time or make a contribution to a clinic which protects the unborn. Pray for and share the Good News with those who need to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.
