Continuing abortions will rob U.S. of God's blessings

About a month ago, protesters against abortion returned from their annual trip to Washington. When will America learn every abortion takes away a life?

It saddens me to observe how little we think of the value of each person's life. After World War II, we pointed our finger at Hitler's supporters who killed millions of Jews. They were unwanted and had to be discarded as garbage. The nearly 50 million of unborn who could have been supporting our economy couldn't.

In the Bible, the prophet Malachi in chapter 3 verse 8 asks, Will a man rob God? The answer was yes. They didn't give God their tithes and offerings.

I can say another Bible passage, Ephesians 2: 8-10. We were created by God to do good works. God's people were given life to help the poor, the widow and orphans. They can't if they lost their lives.

Can we expect God's blessings if we continue to rob Him? We need His blessings in our schools, our economy, safety and our food, shelter and homes.

What will history tell of the values of this present society?
