It's a sickening legacy America has, the murder of unborn babies. Every year, 1.3 million innocent lives are taken by abortionists in our nation. Where is the outrage over their deaths? Who weeps for them?
New York City's contribution to the annual number of babies aborted every year is an astounding 83,750. This is according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest "Abortion Surveillance," published on Nov. 29, 2013.
Let that sink in for a minute, that number is just for the year 2010 alone. The babies murdered by NYC abortionists in that year is enough to fill MetLife Stadium, which holds 82,500, where the Super Bowl is being played at this year.
The number of murdered babies could almost fill Madison Square Garden, which holds 19,763, twice. In the entire state of New York overall, abortionists have terminated 115,724 unborn babies in 2010, according to the CDC report.
In a given year that's more people then who've attended any Super Bowl ever. It is also more people than have attended any single NFL or NCAA football game. The largest number of people attending a Super Bowl, was a crowd of 103,985, according to ESPN.
This was during Super Bowl XIV between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Los Angeles Rams at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 20, 1980. The largest crowd ever to attend an NFL game, also according to ESPN, was the crowd of 112,376 that watched the Dallas Cowboys vs. Houston Oilers in 1994 at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
CBS reports the biggest crowd to attend an NCAA football game was 115,109 during the Michigan vs Notre Dame game at Ann Arbor, Mich. on Sept. 7, 2013.
After contemplating those number read what the president said on the 41st anniversary yesterday of Roe v Wade in Washington D.C. Mr. Obama gave the following speech, according to USA Today:
Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision's guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.
We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman's access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom.
And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

Christianity Examiner Commentary
Yesterday was the 41st anniversary of the day when abortion was legalized by the Supreme Court. They invented the need for a generalized right to privacy which has resulted in 55 million unborn being murdered. It gave women the constitutional right to snuff out the life of a human being as young as six weeks old.
In order to ease the conscience of those killing an unborn baby they call it a zygote or a blob of tissue. In all actually a zygote is the original fertilized cell, whereas an embryo is a multi-cellular diploid that is undergoing the first stages of development. Regardless of what they call the unborn baby, it's a human life.
The sanctity of the unborn life is found in Psalm 139:13-16, it says:
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed (NLT).
We can surely see from what it says above, even before a single day passed each moment of a child's life is laid out. This means life begins even before conception, not at the actual moment of it.
Mr. Obama said, "every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health." He also said, "And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies."
What this Examiner would like to know is, what about the rights of the unborn? Don't they deserve a chance to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? What about the health of the unborn, do they desire to die just because a women engages in sexual activity that will undoubtedly result in a pregnancy?
Unintended pregnancies do happen but the vast majority happen, well because of the woman engaging in sex usually without protection. Truth be told, an unintended pregnancy would be better described as an undesired pregnancy.
When you say a prayer tonight please pray for the women contemplating abortion and for the doctors performing them to be pricked in their hearts not to end an innocent baby's life. When society no longer esteems the life of the unborn, we greatly diminish the value of all human life.
