Let's Get Serious About Death
Buying a gun doesn't mean that you are going to kill someone. In fact, MOST gun owners never killed anyone, nor will they ever kill anyone.
Getting an abortion 100% means that you're going to kill someone. Every. Single. Time. That's the point of abortion.
Don't hear me wrong, what happened in Orlando was awful. Fifty people died. They're never coming back. A nation mourns, and rightly so.
But every single day in America, an average of 3,000 babies are aborted. Real people with real souls, given to them by God. People who will never even get a chance at life. And they aren't coming back, either.
Three thousand babies per day. More babies are killed in one five-day "work week" than all of the people who died from gun violence in all of America in all of 2015 combined.
Three thousand babies per day. But we've become completely numb, because we've bought the lie that it's a "woman's right" to kill what is living inside of her body, a "woman's health issue" that allows her to destroy another human life.
Even most non-Christians realize that their body has a soul, something deeper than just their intellect and emotions and physical body parts. Souls don't develop at the 3-month point of a pregnancy. Souls are given to us by God from the outset of pregnancy -- just as when He knit King David together in his mother's womb. (Psalm 139:13)
But yet we still kill 3,000 babies per day, and no one says anything.
Except for when they complain that it's too hard to kill the 3,000-and-first.
I agree that mass killings are a problem. But yet half of this country passionately supports mass killings, as long as they're to their own benefit. After all, who wants the inconvenience of a gift from God?
If guns are on the table, then let's REALLY get serious about death and put abortion on the table, too. Now is as good of a time as any to talk about THAT issue of mass murder -- and much longer overdue than the gun debate.
