An 88 year old woman who collects garbage for a living in China has been saving babies from infanticide since 1972. Only one year after she began saving babies, America bought the lie that legalized abortion would make it safe and lower the maternal mortality rate. Because we bought that lie, many Gosnells and Karpens flourish in unsafe, detrimental killing practices that go unnoticed for years. Pro-abortion advocates claim that the laws and regulations which actually do ensure safety only make it more difficult for women to get their abortions. Some call inspections designed to keep facilities clean “barriers” that will keep women from practicing their right to abort their babies. Many ridiculously complain that requiring hospital admitting privileges for abortion centers is just a pro-life ploy to keep women from killing babies, while at the same time claiming to be “health centers” that promote the health of women.
In China, Lou Xiaoying has saved over thirty abandoned babies on the streets. The reason babies are abandoned so often there is because of their strict one-child laws.
“The whole thing started when I found the first baby, a little girl back in 1972 when I was out collecting rubbish. She was just lying amongst the junk on the street, abandoned. She would have died had we not rescued her and taken her in.”
Wasn’t the one infanticide charge of which Gosnell was not convicted an instance where the baby was thrown in the garbage? Aren’t babies taken out like garbage every day in America?
According to this article, last week there was news of a baby found having her throat cut and then put in a plastic bag and thrown in a dustbin at Anshan city, in northeast China’s Liaoning province.
Does that sound familiar too?
Former employees of Karpen recently admitted that they saw and participated in killing babies born alive by twisting their heads and throwing them in plastic bags to ensure they suffocate.
Desperate families in China kill their babies or discard them on the streets because of the fearful law under which they live. Yet even with the strict laws they have, heroes remain who want to save the babies, even on garbage collector income! The baby in the plastic bag in China was rescued and was allowed to live. The baby found in a plastic bag in America died and was assigned a letter.
Where are the heroes in America? The ones who will have pity on the brutally murdered, abused babies?
We have infinitely more resources than this garbage collector in China. Even in ambitious corporate, capitalistic, America, we are superbly more child-friendly than in China. We have more resources, and more opportunities, and spend more in a day than this woman makes in weeks, yet we fight for the right to be cruel or stand by knowing the evil that takes place here?
The difference is, our garbage dumps are legal, unregulated, cruel abortion facilities, and thankfully, most of us do not make a living collecting that garbage. Since we cannot go rescue the babies in trash bags dying to live from the hands of their hired murderers, and we are aware of the evil that persists behind semi-closed doors, there is something we can do.
Everyone of these murders in America are witnessed by someone. There is usually at least one employee who sees and hears what evil occurs.
Please commit with me to pray for the employees at the abortion centers near you to become American heroes like Xiaoying is in China. Please pray with me that God will turn the hearts of abortion center employees to Him and to life. Pray with me that the workers at the specific center near you will suddenly experience compassion for the children and have courage to leave that job and report any illegal or unsafe activity. Pray also for employees at hospitals near you are aware of infanticide laws and report anything that appears to oppose the safety of babies born alive. Let’s also pray for God’s favor, provision, and protection for the ones who leave the abortion industry and report misconduct.
If you want to build your faith and be encouraged that God does change hearts, please read these two American hero tales.
