Why Do We Show Pictures of PreBorn and Aborted Babies

The Personhood FL Tour is coming to Port St Lucie Tuesday afternoon, and already it has caused quite a stir. Thursday’s Article: Group to bring oversized photos of abortions to main PSL intersection has received 217 comments so far, and an online poll showed that TC Palm readers don’t want to see pictures of what they blissfully tolerate in our community. Sunday’s paper features a new article by Editor Anthony Westbury: Anti-abortion pictures unlikely to have impact. Please take a moment to read the articles, take the poll, and comment on them.

The Port St Lucie event is part of the Missionary to the PreBrorn Personhood FL Spring Break Tour which has already been to Panama City Beach, Tallahassee, Ocala, Tampa, Sarasota, Ft Myers, Naples and Miami and will cover Ft Lauderdale and West Palm prior to the PSL stop and then continues to Orlando, Daytona Beach, before ending in Jacksonville. The tour features two truth trucks with large signs of born, preborn, and aborted babies along with 45 prolifers with large signs. (Several of the cities on the west coast and central part of FL only had truth trucks due to excessive rain and high winds Thursday and Friday.) Participants will also pass out literature promoting the Personhood FL Constitutional Petition, which when enacted will end abortion in Florida and directly challenge Roe v Wade.

Why are we doing this? To remind post abortive women and men of their sins? No! To expose children to pictures they shouldn’t see? No! We’re doing this for the same reason William Wilberforce brought slave ships by the ships of English nobility. We’re doing this for the same reason that the world saw pictures of Nazi holocaust victims. If abortion is so horrible that we can’t stand to look at pictures of the mutilated babies, should we really tolerate it? You see, without the pictures, we can easily go about our ordinary business and forget that we allow 1,200,000 baby girls and boy per year in the US, 88,000 in Florida, and 1,000 in St Lucie County to be brutally murdered. Without the pictures, it’s easy to forget that we allow the shedding of the blood of more than 52,000,000 preborn children in America while we go to work, school, church, play, etc. Without the pictures, it’s easy to forget that the prosperity that we have enjoyed since abortion became legal has been earned by ignoring the precious children who were fearfully and wonderfully made in the secret places of their mother’s womb yet face the threat of death by abortion. (See Psalm 139.) How long can we expect God to withhold His judgment from America? How many more babies can we possibly kill before our land will vomit us forth as Canaan did to the Canaanites? How many more babies will we allow to be ripped limb from limb before we see “the great and dreadful day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:5) as Israel experienced because Manasseh, “filled Jerusalem from one end to another” with innocent blood. (2 Kings 2:16.)

For post abortive women and men, we have one message: full confession leads to full forgiveness and healing that can only come through Jesus Christ. And the children who see these pictures see clearly what should be done: stop the killing! Our message is clear: It’s time for abortion to end! We’ve waited 37 for incremental legislative approaches to stop abortion. 52,000,000 babies later, we realize that they have failed! True, we have made progress, but the killing continues. We’re here to say: Abortion will end in America, and we’re going to make history by ending abortion in Florida and protecting every innocent human life! Will you join us on the streets?

Matthew 10:26 – “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”
Matthew 5:14 – “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Ephesians 5:11-12 – “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.”

Join me in shining the light of Jesus Christ to expose sin, offer forgiveness to post-abortive women and men, and to protect innocent human life.

I invite you to listen to and watch my sermon, Why Do We Show Pictures of PreBorn and Aborted Babies? Afterward, listen to and watch other sermons that apply God's word says about Sin, Obeying God, the divinity of Jesus Christ, abortion, pro-life, taxes, homosexuality, homosexual marriage, government, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, parents, reading, studying, and meditating on the Bible, prayer, and more.
