Roe Vs. Wade Memorial

Every January, Between 50 and 200 people gather for a memorial service in downtown Charlotte.  Grandparents, families, and lots of young children huddle in the freezing weather to sing praise and worship songs, to pray, and to be stirred and edified by strong preaching and testimonials.  They pass out tracts and informative pamphlets to men and women who walk by, even engaging some in conversation. They gather to glorify the name of Jesus in the holding of a memorial service for the 57 million lives lost to abortion.  A service in remembrance of Roe Vs. Wade, the day abortion was legalized in America. Today was that day, and here are some pictures I took.

I find it sad that we have to have a memorial service at all.  Sad that abortion isallowed here-sad that it has been allowed for 41 years already.  But we need to accept and understand the fact that abortion does not have to be "legal," we do have to option still to stop this insane killing of our offspring.  But abortion is not going to end itself.  And if it's not going to end itself, do you know what's going to have to end it? Us. Me. You.  If the whole church of Jesus Christ were to stand up for what they really believe, the truth; if they would stand up for Jesus, the enemy would buckle and fall.  Abortion would end.  But until we make up our minds that is going to happen it won't.  We should have ended this 41 years ago, but we didn't.  Now is the time! 41 years of "legalized" baby slaughter is ENOUGH! Stand up!
