An Open Letter to Pastors:
I am a Christian and an abolitionist of abortion. For decades now, we in Florida (and America), have failed to protect our preborn neighbors. Every week in Florida, more than 1600 babies are murdered by dismemberment. Many more babies are killed by chemical abortion.
The appropriate response of the church, according to the Scriptures is to keep ourselves from this evil, to expose it, and to rescue its victims from slaughter.
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. —Proverbs 24:11
My fellow abolitionists and I are part of a mission called, “Searching for Wilberforce”, our Facebook page. We also have a YouTube channel. By God’s grace and for His glory, we are approaching every legislator with an appeal to file abolitionist legislation in order to provide legal protection for every single baby in the womb, without exceptions. This is the right thing to do. And you and I must insist on it. We are also approaching every pastor for your help in joining our cry for justice for our tiniest neighbors. Specifically, we request that you:
- Visit and “like” our page.
- Write a recommendation for it.
- Promote it to your congregation.
- Preach on passionate love for our unborn neighbors.
- Pray fervently for justice in our state.
If we do the footwork and you do the fingerwork of “liking” our page and spreading the word, our legislators will sit up and listen. And even if they refuse to listen, it’s still our duty to raucously decry this injustice committed against the youngest and smallest persons in our community. We owe our tiny preborn babies in Florida protection from the violence of abortion.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. —Proverbs 3:27
Please repent with us. Perhaps the Lord will visit our state and our nation with a revival of historic proportions. Thank you for considering our request. To God Almighty, the Judge of All, be the glory forever and ever.
The pro-life movement has always been animated by compassion and a zeal for human rights. But if you asked people on the streets whether they associate those two things with the pro-life movement, I wonder how many would agree.
