It seems right on this national Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday to recognize that someday little black babies and little brown babies and little babies with disabilities of all colors will no longer be subject to the horror of abortion.
It is a focused horror. I’ve covered the issue of abortion and babies with disabilities many times before, but it isn’t limited to disability. Black babies are also targeted (thank you to The Radiance Foundation for this video):
It also seems right to warn those who would destroy them because they are black or brown or disabled or poor that this injustice will not stand, and it won’t be human judges who make the verdict:
For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:30-31 ESV
Jesus can cover this sin of abortion. Isn’t that what we want – more people clinging to Jesus? And that doesn’t just turn people away from doing horrible things to babies, but leads to joy!
And that’s the kind of justice I think we all want:
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 ESV
