The Hebrew Bible is not for the squeamish. And its harshest maledictions are called down upon those who practiced the abomination of child-sacrifice.

Thus the Psalmist:

“They sacrificed their sons and daughters to the demons/they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood./Thus they became unclean by their acts, and played the harlot in their doings./Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage./ . . . they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low because of their iniquity” (Psalm 106:38-40, 43).

And the prophet Ezekiel, delivering the word of the Lord:

“And you took your sons and your daughters, whom you had borne to me, and these you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter that you slaughtered my children and delivered them up as an offering by fire to them? . . . Behold, therefore, I stretched out my hand against you, and diminished your allotted portion, and delivered you to the greed of your enemies . . . ” (Ezekiel 16:20-21, 27).

Thirty-nine years after Roe v. Wade created an unrestricted abortion license in the United States, and during the week when hundreds of thousands of Americans pray and march for life, all Americans ought to ponder these words”and the kind of country to which Roe v. Wade led.

It was supposed to be a country in which women were liberated; it became a country in which women were ever more the victims of predatory and sexually irresponsible men, left alone with their “rights” to find a technological “fix” to the dilemma of unwanted pregnancy.

No matter how much women pretend that they were "liberated" by 'Roe v Wade' and/or the 'Sexual Revolution', my guess is that very few, if any, women who "liberated" themselves really feel "good" about being promiscuous when looking back at their lives.

Yet another lie, among many, the adversary uses to lure God's children away from Him.

well-meaning people presume I have children and wish me a "happy mother's day".

I used to inform them point-blank in the check-out line/church/restaurant/etc.,

"I have no children."

Now that awkward moment was ripe for Candid Camera. LOL

*I have never sacrificed children.
