WASHINGTON, January 8, 2016 — Each year, Time Magazine announces a Person of the Year. For the 55 million babies who have been murdered in the womb, the opportunity to grace Time’s cover will never come.
The annual March for Life Rally will be held this year in Washington D.C. at noon on Friday, January 22. It will be held then to bring attention to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion all over the nation. This year, Americans can make a difference by shutting down the nation’s largest abortion mill: Planned Parenthood.
Silence is betrayal.
A series of horrifying videos have made real the tragedy which occurs in the lives of every woman and man who abandon their potential as future parents. The Planned Parenthood videos zero-in on the callousness which is at the very heart of the daily decimation of human life that obliterates unborn babies’ futures.
America does not have to wait for a magazine to bestow on an unborn child the accolade, “2016 Person of the Year.” The American Christian Civil Rights Movement firmly believes that that right lies with every person, household and supporter of the God-given right to life.
There are some running for the White House in 2016 who may be reluctant to consider or unwilling to embrace the very notion that an unborn child is a person. These candidates are guided by polls, liberal and even conservative pundits, and political advisors who insist that this is an unwinnable issue for them. Since when does defending and preserving the lives of unborn children require approval from political polls?
This year, protecting the lives of unborn children must be more than a radio talk-show talking point or a matter of lip service for candidates. Why not let the movement to support lives of the unborn be guided by Biblical principles?
Ecclesiastes 11:5 “As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.”
Listen carefully to the presidential candidates and ask their views concerning the personhood rights of the unborn. Demand answers at town hall meetings in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and across America. Examine their records and insist that this terrorism against the unborn be ended without excuse a political artful dodge. Demand personhood for the unborn child, now and tomorrow, and do not let up.
Far too often, pledges to protect the lives of the unborn are jettisoned once rallies like the March for Life are replaced in the news by the primaries in February, March and April. The lives of the unborn cannot be left undefended, their fate ignored until the next rally in 2017.
This January, the March for Life must be a launch pad to make the unborn child “person of the year” in 2016. This year we must have more than carefully crafted speeches in Washington, state capitols and Fox News. America’s legislative prolife calendar in the nation’s capitol must be weaponized by conservative congressional representatives while Capitol Hill is in Republican hands.
And it must not stop there. The GOP controls 31 governorships and 30 state legislatures. In addition, for the first time in nearly a century, the Deep South is GOP red from the Carolinas to the plains of Texas. Now is the time to make real the promises of a pro-life personhood revolution that will move across the nation like a red, white and blue blaze of freedom for the unborn.
On January 22, join March for Life in Washington, or support it in your state, community and in your hearts and with your prayers. Join with the American Christian Civil Rights Movement in 2016 to use every moment of every minute, hour and day count to protect, defend and honor their Christian right to life. Your silence is betrayal. Make each and every one of them your 2016 Person of the Year.
