God will listen as we worked at stopping legal abortion with a Life Amendment to the Constitution as He listened to the people of Ninevah. So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, “Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water. But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?” Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them. Jonah 3:4-10
IS AMERICA LIKE NINEVEH? Will We Repent? As we legally kill more than a million of preborn babies made in God¹s image every year, what can we expect from God? Will he just keep allowing us to break his laws? Or will Americans came back to their senses and follow God¹s plan? Several Proverbs give us insight: Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. 14:34 When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, men go into hiding.28:12 And in Psalm: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12 And in II Chron. 7:14 …if my people will turn from their wicked ways,…I will forgive their sin and heal their land. Let us not become weary in dong good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 We can not give up protecting the most vulnerable among us – the unborn child. God is waiting for the church and Christians to rise up and say, “Enough is enough.”
Here are three of many examples where ordinary people did rise up and stepped out in faith and God orchestrated the result:
1. An unknown pro-lifer, Don Smith, who ran an advertising business to support his seven children, helped produce pro-life films. When he heard about footage of an actual early abortion, he flew at his own expense to interview the person with the footage. It turned out to be Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who had stopped doing abortions after performing over 60,000 abortions in N.Y. City. Dr. Nathanson was then flown to California to be filmed as the narrator of the film entitled “The Silent Scream”. A copy was sent to every Congress person, the Supreme Court Justices and President Reagan. Then the exciting call came to come to Washington D.C. for a press conference. President Reagan had seen the film and he said, “Your film unmasks abortion’s brutal nature…” After the press conference, the film became very well known. “The Silent Scream” went on to be translated into at least seven languages and became the most watched pro-life film in the world.
2. A dedicated pro-life almond farmer in Northern California, Royce Dunn, came up with the idea of having people spread out along a busy intersection for an hour on Sunday afternoon as an extension of the church service to pray against abortion. The first sign said, Abortion Kills Children. This was called a Life Chain. A group in Bakersfield, CA picked up on the idea and formed a chain of several thousand people. Next there was one in Riverside and then Orange County where 16,000 people stood along a busy street. San Diego and South Bay followed. Meanwhile Focus on the Family heard about the “Life Chain” and did an interview with Royce and published an article in their Citizen Magazine. The next week Royce received over 1000 calls! Within a year on the first Sunday in October over a half million people stood praying for the nation and against abortion all across America and eventually in several other nations as well.
3. In 2015 an unknown young man from California brought the world’s attention to the evil of Planned Parenthood as he and his helper exposed the illegal practice of selling baby parts after an abortion. These short films exposed exactly how extreme legal abortion had become. Many states are now defunding Planned Parenthood and even Congress is going to vote on defunding this evil giant!
4. And now a small volunteer pro-life organization is promoting a Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Crusade for Life has been educating on abortion for over 45 years. With everyone’s help it will be possible to stop legal abortion in America forever. Please go to our website www.lifeamendment.org and read the Frequently Asked Questions, the outstanding booklets and other material. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. Join the Life Amendment Coalition and sign-up as we need everyone’s support and help. Thanks!
