Speak of What You Know (John 3:11)

17 Apr Speak of What You Know (John 3:11)

Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB).  Guest Authors.
“Amen, Amen, I say to you, we speak of what we know and we testify to what we have seen, but you people do not accept our testimony.” John 3:11 (full readings)
Rob’s Reflections:   This is one of the great frustrations of the Pro-Life community.  Embryology textbooks have long stated that life begins at conception.  Arguments to the contrary are simply dishonest.   The pro-abortion community has long argued for abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.”   One of the safety arguments cited often by the pro-abortion community is that 5,000 to 10,000 women died from illegal abortions EVERY YEAR prior to Roe v. Wade.  Those who conjured up these numbers out of thin air subsequently admitted the numbers were manufactured.  The actual number of maternal deaths from illegal abortions prior to Roe was likely in the dozens per year, which would mean more women die from LEGAL abortions than ever died from illegal abortions.  With over one million “procedures” every year, abortion is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States.  That leaves “legal” as the only element of truth in pro-abortion industries’ “safe, legal, rare” mantra.  And legal is an understatement.  Abortions are always legal at any time a mother’s emotional health is deemed to be in jeopardy.  That “emotional health” provision means the stark reality is abortion is legal in the United States at ANY TIME for ANY REASON.  And yes, that includes up until the moment of birth.  Many choose not to accept this testimony just as many chose not to accept the testimony of Jesus in today’s Gospel.
Faith Challenge:  Always speak the truth about abortion.  Commit yourself to patiently reminding the many who unthinkingly align themselves with the pro-abortion industry that abortion is not safe, not rare and it is vastly more legal than they choose to believe.
