Be The Voice

Earlier this year I had a layover in Atlanta on a flight back from a business trip. There is something about looking down at the clouds from above that changes your perspective. On this flight I wondered how God views the world He made. Does he look at the beauty and cleanliness of the upper atmosphere and delight in His creation?

Or is the beauty of nature ruined by the wickedness of man? As He looks down on the habitations of men, is it all ruined by the strife and violence that He sees? Does the blood of the innocent crying out from the ground prevent Him from enjoying the good?

As I thought on these things, I flew into Atlanta, with its familiar downtown skyline. This is a city where thousands of babies are aborted every year. It's a city where Let Me Live has invested thousands of dollars in billboard advertising to turn women back from abortion. When I think of Atlanta, I think of the abortion clinics we target with our billboards and the thousands of women who make the fateful decision there to end the lives of their young ones.

At the Atlanta airport I found my way to my next flight in another terminal, and passed this poster:

"Be the voice for those who have no voice."

Should someone speak for the baby elephant? Perhaps. How much more must we speak for the protection of the baby humans.

Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
If you say, “See, we did not know this,”
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work? Proverbs 24:11 (NASB)
Be the voice.

I have seen those signs so many times and have always thought the same thing. A fetus needs a voice.
