Our children

Mingi.  In Ethiopia, some members of the Hamer and Karo tribes kill mingi children by leaving them alone in the jungle or drowning them in the river.  Drawn From the Water was an orphanage that worked to save these children until they were shut down by an Ethiopian insider who betrayed them.  How does a child become mingi?  Among other ways, by being born a twin…

Missionary Mary Slessor, affectionately known as the “White Queen of Calabar” went to Nigeria in the late 19th century.  She adopted many Nigerian children who were sentenced to die.  Why were they sentenced to die?  Because they were twins…

Throughout ancient history, and in many cultures, twins have been considered bad luck.  Kings would sometimes kill one son so that the other would be free to reign.  Parents would kill one child or give her to a local orphanage so that the “devil’s child” would not remain in their family.  All because these children were twins…

I would estimate that 99.9% of Americans reading this would be shocked with horror.  Why in the world would we kill an innocent baby simply because he or she is a twin?  Well, apparently, a rising trend in America is to kill twins.  In our “modern society”, many women have a selective abortion if they are pregnant with twins or other multiples.  They simply choose which child they want to keep and kill the rest–kill the rest inside the mother’s womb, while the “chosen” child sits and watches his brother or sister be murdered.  Creepy visual, I know, but that’s exactly what happens.

And do we really think the “chosen” child is going to grow up a secure, emotionally healthy individual?  I highly doubt it.  If my parents had killed my twin, I’d personally wonder what I could do someday that would possibly make them want to kill me.  What if they have a younger child later on that they like better?  What if I somehow become inconvenient to their lifestyle?

Be SURE to read this newsbreaking article yourself.  You can find it in the  August 14, 2011 edition of The New York Times Magazine’s cover story, “The Two-Minus-One Pregnancy.”  Go here http://www.christianpost.com/news/this-isnt-meddling-its-murder-54062/ for selected portions of the article and an explanation.

I also HIGHLY recommend reading this blog post:  http://prolifeintn.blogspot.com/2011/08/has-abortion-industry-finally-jumped.html.

What are we going to do to stop the rising genocide of twins in America?  What are you going to do?  And how is killing a twin any different from killing any other innocent child?

    Ever since 1973, when Roe vs. Wade made the murder of unborn human beings in the womb legal, children’s lives have become less and less valuable to many people. Of course abortions were performed long before 1973, but since that black time in our nation’s history, many people have gotten rich on the blood of murdered babies. I cannot imagine what our God thinks of this. Only He has the power of life and death. Physicians, all required to take an oath to “do no harm,” have apparently forgotten these words the minute someone waves money under their noses and eagerly participate in the holocaust against the unborn. Planned Parenthood, one of the most evil organizations since the Nazis are rabid in their quest to kill. I wonder why. Surely it can’t all be about money. No, there is something else going on in the hearts and minds of those who so vehemently support abortion. Selective abortions – that is the killing of one or more unborn babies while leaving at least one survivor is just another part of the madness that is abortion. What can we do? We can call, write or email our state representatives and those in Washington, D.C. and let them know we want abortion stopped. We can pray outside of abortion clinics. This works and many mothers have not had an abortion because of those who were outside praying. We can put pressure on our government to see that it does not pay for abortions or fund any clinics that do them. We can get Roe vs. Wade overturned. Yes, it can be done! Above all, we can pray to our Lord God in Heaven, asking His forgiveness and for His help to get the slaughter of unborn human beings stopped everywhere in this world.
