January 27th was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On January 22nd, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation legalizing abortion up to the moment of birth to thunderous applause and skyscrapers lighted in celebration of the march of inhuman progress.
The first time I was in Jerusalem, I visited Israel’s Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem (Hebrew for “a monument and a name”). To call it a sobering experience is like saying Auschwitz was a place where crimes were committed.
I didn’t lose it until I came to a simple exhibit – the worn shoe of a child of perhaps two or three, sitting alone in a glass case, representing the horror of one million Jewish children murdered by the Nazis. What did these innocents endure? Could they even comprehend what was happening to them?
At least the Nazis killed someone else’s children. We’re sacrificing our own – on the altar of a warped ideology. Many of us have been lying to ourselves for so long that we are blind to a simple reality – The life created by a human male and a human female, is in fact human.
Guards had to look at the faces of three-year-olds as they were herded into gas chambers. Andrew Cuomo doesn’t have to look at a woman lying on a table, her belly swelling with new life, and then witness the bloody aftermath of “reproductive rights” when the procedure is over.
Thomas Jefferson famously remarked: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
But how do the Cuomos of this country sleep at night – and where will they sleep for eternity?
Editor’s Note: This is the same reason pro-abortion advocates fight against showing images of babies in the womb that reveal just how human they are.
A question I often ask pro-abortionists is at what age does a ‘fetus’ become a human?
Our youngest daughter was born 5-weeks premature.
She was fully human and is still living today.
Yet Cuomo and his bloodlust cronies say that she wasn’t human, at least until she drew her first breath.
But many babies are born much earlier than our daughter, and yet they are fully human.
Does breathing make them human?
Technically, they breathe the amniotic fluid while in the womb, so, breathing can’t be used.
One pro-abortionist told me that they become human when they can survive on their own.
My answer was that no child can survive on their own for a number of years after being born, so, that doesn’t work for them either.
I’ve shown them were babies in the womb react to sounds and pain, whereas pieces of tissue don’t.
Then I ask them why they are so anxious to murder innocent unborn children and at the same time oppose the death penalty for convicted murderers?
That usually ends the conversation because they have no more defense to fall back on.
