O Heavenly Father and Most Merciful God, we come to You with broken hearts and in a state of grief-stricken shock and agony of soul.
You have watched us kill our babies for many decades and call it "choice." Killing the unborn has now reached a new level of atrocity as there are those among us who wish to kill babies at the point of birth and even beyond. Their intent is to give this new level of bloodthirsty, murderous evil the full support of law.
Heavenly Father, You have watched as Planned Parenthood has not only promoted the killing of our babies, but also the selling of their dismembered body parts for profit in the name of science. You have surely recoiled in disgust, Lord, as our government supports this barbarism with tax money we pay into our federal treasury.
Our Lord and our God, we know not where to turn except to You. We have shown no mercy to our unborn for all these many years, Lord. We now ask that in accordance with Your Holy Word, the Bible, You would also show no mercy to those who want to kill our babies. In the spirit of "an eye for an eye" we ask that You remove Your protection from those who want to destroy the lives of our infants. Whether their intent is to kill babies in the womb, at the point of birth, or, heaven forbid, even after birth, please, Lord, remove Your mercy from the lives of these destroyers. Let them fully understand that they no longer have Your mercy available to themselves. Let them discover the same level of mercilessness they have shown to our unborn and helpless children. As You have told us in the Bible, Lord, "Judgment will be without mercy to those who have shown no mercy." (James 2:13)
Lord, we dislike intensely that we feel a need to make this request of You. But we say we are a "nation under God" when we are not -- and do not want to be. We say "in God we trust" when we refuse to trust You -- when trusting You is the furthest thing from our thoughts.
How we can possibly think You will not hold us accountable for all the lives we have taken in the name of "choice" is beyond understanding. We have so many millions of precious lives to answer for! You are a God of love, of mercy -- but also of justice. By removing Your mercy from the destroyers in our midst, You will be exacting Your justice upon them. And, Father, we fully expect that we all may be called upon to feel Your wrath and Your justice in this once-great country, the United States of America.
Please let us ALL understand again, Lord, that only You are God. Give us a desire to know You and to trust You, because we will not trust without knowing You just as we do not seem able to trust our own neighbors until we get to know them. Help us to become people who can readily say "in God we trust," understand what that means, and mean it when we say it.
We ask this humbly and with great sadness, but also with great resolve, Lord, in the Name above every name, the Name of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We will always thank You for the privilege of reaching out to You in prayer.
Amen, Amen, and Amen.
Before they call, I will answer; and
while they are still speaking, I will hear.

PLEASE NOTE: All Democrat presidential candidates (thus far), Senators Kamala Harris (CA), Bernie Sanders (VT), Cory Booker (NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Elizabeth Warren (MA) all voted “NO” on the bill which would have required doctors to provide a proper degree of care to babies born alive after an attempted abortion. Among our elected government officials, it is usually
Democrats who repeatedly choose to show NO MERCY both to helpless and vulnerable infants and to their mothers.
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) tried to pass this bill after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) created a fire-storm with his endorsement of late-term abortion and infanticide.
OF FURTHER NOTE: A full-term, fully viable baby can now be legally ripped from its mother's womb in New York. The New York Reproductive Health Act (RHA) signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo has removed abortion from the state's penal code completely. In other words, in the state of New York the womb is no longer, at any point in the amazingly beautiful reproductive process, a safe place for a baby. New York now will not offer a baby ANY LEGAL PROTECTION WHATSOEVER in its struggle to be born alive. Even if an abortion attempt should result in a live birth, a baby in New York WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY MEDICAL ASSISTANCE TO CONTINUE LIVING. Can you imagine any law as barbaric as this one being made part of the legal code in the United States of America? And they call it the Reproductive Health Act? Even before passing this law, New York had an abortion rate that was twice the national average, killing more black babies than were allowed to be born alive.
NEW UPDATE 4-26-2019: Former Democratic VP Joe Biden has just announced that he is also seeking the 2020 presidential nomination of his party. (You may remember Biden as Obama's VP.) Mr. Biden, at the age of 76, apparently has little to do outside of politics, and wants more of the bruising, even brutal, disrespect that his candidacy is sure to generate. Biden has, over his political career, earned the nick-name "Crazy Joe" because he frequently speaks before putting his brain into gear. (Seems to be some-thing that a lot of Democrats have in common.) Biden makes no apology for being another supporter of unlimited abortions up to and after the moment of birth...like the other Democrats who are already in the presidential race.
NEW UPDATE 5-14-2019: The Democrats -- the people who used to support abortion as something that should be "safe, legal, and rare" -- are now fully embracing abortion on demand. Democrats now want abortion to be frequent, dangerous, and completely legal. The president and CEO of Planned Parent-hood of Northern New England said the state of Vermont is now seen as “the shining example for all other states” for its radical, pro-abortion legislation that has become a mark of the Democrat Party. The Vermont legislation requires no interpretation as to whether the mother’s health is a factor in the decision to abort a baby. Any and all abortions would be legal throughout the entire pregnancy, and for any reason. The Democrats have moved so far to the left on this critical issue that there is no longer any place in their political party for a Democrat who is even somewhat moderate on the issue. The USA is fast losing its example to the rest of the world as a place which cherishes life, as we are now moving rapidly toward legally-supported murder of both infants and our elderly.
"Judgment will be without mercy
to those who have shown no mercy."
A. It is wrong to intentionally kill innocent and vulnerable human beings.
B. Abortion intentionally kills innocent and vulnerable human beings.
C. Therefore, abortion is morally wrong and should be illegal.
The unborn are distinct, living, and whole human beings. You did not come from an embryo, you once were an embryo. There is no relevant difference between you the embryo and you the adult that in any way justifies killing you at an earlier stage of development (and for which you should be very grateful). Intentionally killing human beings for any other reason is called "murder" and is severely punishable by law.
If it's wrong to hurt people because of skin color or gender, why is it
permissible to hurt them because they are smaller, less developed,
or not yet able to respond and engage with other humans?
