Friday NEWS, January 22, 2021

Today, January 22, 2021 marks the 48th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision by the US Supreme Court in 1973 that LEGALIZED abortion in the US

Abortion is the leading cause of death in America (and the world).

Estimates range between 42 million and 54 million babies aborted.

Fact: More lives are lost to abortion worldwide each year than all other causes of death combined. Abortion kills more people than war, famine, and genocide combined.

*Danielle D’Souza Gill’s new book, The Choice: the Abortion Divide in America, reports that, “Abortion is the greatest form of mass killing in the world by far.

In 2018, cancer took 8.2 million, HIV/AIDS took 1.7 million lives.

But, Abortion claimed 41.9 million lives.”


Today is Sanctity of Human Life Day

Compassion: One in three women inside the church has had an abortion.

Many Christian women who have experienced abortion struggle with the ‘lie’ that God does not forgive this sin, but this is not true.

*Romans 5:8 says, “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (ESV
There is hope. There is forgiveness. There is freedom.
