Lord Have Mercy

"Nearly half of all African American pregnancies end in abortion."

The report from the Guttmacher Institute is exhaustive. And there is some encouraging news overall, as abortions have hit a 30 year low.

But I could not get over that quote above.

Do we really want to elect someone who will remove all restrictions to abortion?

The report seems to indicate that we're on the right track. We ARE reducing abortions. Signing the Freedom of Choice Act, as Obama has pledged to do on his first day in office will not reduce the deaths of innocents - just the opposite.

As a side note - LBJ's "War On Poverty" - was a well intentioned attempt to help the poor. What it has done is capture them in a cycle of dependence on government, separate fathers from wives, and cast young mothers into peril.

And the "collateral damage" was devastating to millions of the unborn, and continues to this day.

Lord have mercy on us. Christ lead us in Your way and away from the world's solutions. Church stand up and live out your calling to be lovers of the needy.

If I didn't have the hope through Jesus Christ that He will right these wrongs...

What can the predominately anglo churches do to help our brothers and sisters reverse these great iniquities within their communities?

Right now, the most impactful thing you can do is vote against Obama.
