Today marks the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States

It is estimated since that decision in 1973 over 56,000,000 babies have perished.

56,000,000 little ones who never had the chance to be someones son or daughter, brother or sister, someones grandchild. It is easy to believe that after so much time has passed it will never change.

Don’t believe it.

Slavery existed in England for hundreds of years. One man William Wilberforce who converted to Christianity in 1784 made it his mission to see the end of slavery. In his lifetime it came to pass. In 1833 shortly before his death, slavery was outlawed in England. All because of one man

The end of abortion can happen in our time..

Pray that it will.

Pray the time will come when every precious little life will be valued and protected.

Pray that God will raise up the William Wilberforce of our time.

Maybe that person is you.

About HCliffCraig.com

“Now at last they were beginning chapter One of the great story no one on earth has read: which goes on forever”. I love this line at the end of the Last Battle by C.S. Lewis. Everyone has a story to tell and ultimately we are all part of a greater story that someday will be revealed in full. “ For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things”. ( 1 Corinthians 13:12). My story is not remarkable, although the events I have had the privilege in my life to witness have been. I grew up in the south “the land of cotton” and the old times there were definitely not forgotten. I remember where I was and what I was doing when JFK and Martin Luther King were murdered in Dallas and in Memphis. I remember the Civil Rights movement, a time of great unrest and change. I remember the dawning of the “Age of Aquarius” in the late 1960’s. It was also the dawning of my love for playing music, a love that has stayed with me throughout my life. If my life were chapters in a book one would tell of my precious bride of 20+ years who endured so much and stood beside me through the good and the bad. One would describe the blessings of being a father and a grandfather. One would tell about how despite being “the wretch” the song sings about God was able to change me, and use me to make a difference in others lives, make me a servant in His church, and surround me with friends all because of His goodness. All part of a story that has had many twists and turns. I think of the words Jimmy Buffet wrote in one of my favorite songs "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin’ man I have chalked up many a mile Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks And I learned much from both of their styles" And so it is true for me. But in all of my travels and all I have read and experienced nothing compares to where I am headed. The place where my story here ends and the story that goes on forever begins! "" I am confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion until the day He returns". Philippians 1:6 My hope is that as we all run our race that in some small way my words will encourage and speak to you, as your story is being written. And draw you ever closer to the One who loves you. Further up and further in!

    Those who respect the sanctity of the unborn child respect their own lives too for the pain of abortion is enduring to those who do not. There is no peace to the wicked.

    good word – I stand in fervent prayer agreement with you, and all who read this message, for the killing of God’s children come to an end. I will also be praying for all those able to walk in Washington d.c.
