Will you show up….for LIFE?
When you visit the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, you have a very sobering experience. It doesn’t matter how much you’ve learned about the holocaust in school, on television, in movies or in books….when you are exposed so closely to the exhibits in the museum you feel helpless because you couldn’t do anything to change or prevent the atrocity of the murders and more that happened so many years ago.
I’ve been to this museum many times with the youth groups we accompanied to the annual March for Life in January. It takes about three hours or so at the least to view the main exhibit, and when you exit this section, you see the following quote in large letters on the wall:
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Pastor Martin Niemoller
The last time I was there, a teenage girl from the group I was chaperoning came up to me in near tears after exiting the museum and reading the above quote. She told me that she “gets it” now. She said that she was horrified to learn so much about this genocide of 11 million people that the world let occur and that so many claimed they didn’t know was happening. However, we DO know about the LEGAL genocide of 56 million human children in the United States alone that WE’VE LET HAPPEN since 1973 and that we CAN do something about it, and she promised to be part of the solution. She “showed up” then, and she is still showing up now.
Many of us are like the apostle Thomas and need proof to believe in something in order to make a commitment. If that’s you, I’m not being judgmental because I’m just like you a lot of the time. You can find all the proof and incentive you need just by exploring our website (click here). Once you get the “proof”, hopefully you’ll understand that you CAN be part of stopping abortion, euthanasia and all other threats to the sanctity of life!
We provide plenty of opportunities to “speak out“, such as the Life Chain we are begging for people to participate in on October 4 in Akron or October 5 in Ravenna. We need to “speak out” for the innocent victims of abortion, and when we meet up in heaven, they will “speak out” for us. We can’t let the abortion holocaust continue without speaking out. I dread the thought of our descendants someday visiting a National Abortion Memorial Museum to learn about our nation allowing the murder of unborn children for over 40 years.
