According to Life magazine, the most influential woman of the last century was Margaret Sanger, founder of the abortion mill known as "Planned Parenthood." Consider some of her views compared to the Word of God:
- "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate" (Ps. 127:3-5).
- "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."—Sanger
- "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled" (Heb. 13:4).
- "The marriage bed is the most denigrating influence of social order."—Sanger
Nothing short of the gospel of Jesus Christ, clearly preach and fully embraced, can reverse the abomination of abortion in our land. This land is defiled and it will not be easily purged. It must begin in each of us with fresh, zealous commitment to the covenant-law of our Lord. It must be sown and cultivated in our homes and in our children. Our church, along with other faithful congregations, must reach out to a desperate and dying world. "In him was life; and the life was the light of men" (John 1:4). "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1 John 5:12).
