With Abortions Up to Birth and Infanticide, We Need to Pray for Revival in America

Have you ever heard of Baal worship? It’s mentioned several times in the Bible, and it’s never a good thing. In biblical times, people worshiping Baal sacrificed their newborn children by throwing them on burning altars.

Why am I bringing this up now? Well, a shocking story recently broke in our nation’s capital. Big media and local politicians are doing their best to ignore it, and it is playing out in, sadly, predictable ways. Here are the basic facts.

Pro-life activists became increasingly concerned that an abortion clinic in Washington, DC, was performing illegal late-term abortions. They confronted a truck driver who was seen removing large containers from the clinic. The driver allowed the activists to take one of the containers.

In it, they discovered the remains of more than 100 aborted babies, including several full-term baby bodies. There are indications some of the babies may have been born alive.

The truck belonged to a waste disposal company in Baltimore, Maryland. Until just a few days ago, the company advertised on its website that it “utilizes Waste-to-Energy incineration to safely convert biomedical waste … into useful energy.”

Not surprisingly, the company denies that it is burning aborted baby bodies to provide energy for the city of Baltimore.

Not surprisingly, authorities in Washington, DC, are refusing to perform autopsies on the recovered bodies.

And, not surprisingly, the pro-life activists who uncovered these potential crimes are now facing charges themselves — just like the undercover activists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted baby body parts.

Shocked by the images of dead babies and the inaction of local officials, Rep. Chip Roy said, “These children’s voices were silenced before they could speak, but their memory cries out for justice… May God have mercy on this nation.”

This past holy week, we celebrated the God who said, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”

We should ponder those words as we pray for a revival in America and for the restoration of the sanctity of life.
