On Sunday the 6th of October 2019, the National Alliance for Life held a national march celebrating life from fertilization at Umhlanga, north of Durban. Present were 600 people from KwaZulu/Natal, Gauteng and other provinces.
Each group present had their own placards or their designed T-shirts. It was an excellent march along roads with high traffic volumes. Most of the public approved the message of life.
On the 5th of October 2019, a pro-life Conference was held at Gateway church with Brad Mattes from the USA the main speaker. He is President of Life Issues Institute in America. He clearly indicated that the life of the unborn child commences at fertilization mentioning that no person on earth has the same DNA. Each person at fertilization is unique, planned by God from the beginning of creation and has a certain God ordained purpose. God said to Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet of the nations.”
When Trump became President of the USA, pro-life groups gave him 4 points to endorse. He did that adding some of his own. He became the first President to take a pro-life stand at the United Nations meeting. He also at a White House meeting this past week for the Hispanic Heritage said: “We trust in God and we cherish the dignity of every human life.”
Brad Mattes mentioned that if the mother sees the unborn child on ultrasound about 86 % will decline an abortion. If they have an abortion both men and women may have severe psychological problems. Siblings also are negatively affected.
The abortion industry is built on lies and deception. God says choose life because no murderers will inherit the Kingdom of God. It is only the blood of Jesus shed at the cross that can heal if people repent of the sin of abortion.
In South Africa back street abortions are way more than legal abortions. According to the Department of Health 6.3 times more. With about 100 000 legal abortions annually it means that 2665 babies are aborted every day. From Durban to Stanger more than 50 internet advertisements are listed advertising “safe abortions” by chemical means. It is an easy way to terminate a pregnancy but God is mocked and will bring a curse upon a country.
Births in KwaZulu/Natal and in South Africa have gradually been declining by about 2 percent per annum since 2008. According to Brad Mattes, it has been found that African Americans experience abortion 3.5 times more readily than white Americans.
Almost 20 pro-life groups in America have in the past week signed a petition that has been handed to the Supreme Court with 250 000 signatures to “overturn” the Roe v. Wade abortion decision.
Abortion is as horrible as anything terrorists can fathom, because it strikes at the very core of our country – the family. By destroying the most basic human bond of all – that between mother and child – abortion dissolves the precious glue that binds people together.
Let the unborn child live and let them enjoy the task God has put aside for them.
