What’s Next If Abortion Isn’t Banned… It could lead to other barbaric practices like the killing of preschool age children, disabled children and the elderly…
Ridiculous? Impossible?…Ridiculous, Yes! Impossible, Unfortunately not!
It’s the slippery slope we are currently standing on. Since the passing of Roe vs Wade we have stepped even farther away from a regard for life with late-term abortions, partial birth abortions and infanticide.
Who would have ever believed we’d descend to this level of atrocity?
The most recent passing of legislature in New York and Virginia regarding abortions confirms that we have. This bill gives specific permission for licensed healthcare practitioners “nondoctors” to perform abortions. These abortions can be performed up to the moment of birth.
Furthermore, this bill repeals protections for babies that have somehow survived the horrific procedure and are born alive. Making it legal for those performing an abortion to deny medical care to the infant and leave the baby to die – which make take hours or days.
Sadly, the passing of this legislation was celebrated with cheers and cries of victory by its proponents. But the USA is not the only nation with such laws and practices; Canada, China, Netherlands, North Korea, Singapore, and Vietnam also allows elective abortions after 20 weeks. And, Iceland has eliminated almost 100 percent of babies identified with down syndrome through prenatal screening.
“The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” – US Vice President, Hubert Humphrey
When these laws were being discussed, my niece exclaimed, “That’s impossible. They’ll never pass!” And then when they did, she asked in horror, “What’s next? Our toddlers?”
She had no idea, God was speaking to us as that time to reshoot, The Letter – What’s Next?, a shocking nine minute film we first produced in 2009, depicting the truth of abortion and where it can lead.
The Letter was originally written 20 years ago by Rocky McKinley, (Pastor of Destiny Community Church in Newberry, FL) and performed as a drama. I’d say it’s prophetic, given where we are in this country with infanticide. We felt an urgency to release it to the public to get the message out there and it’s available now to watch on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Our Heavenly Father considers all life valuable. And I believe abortion is not only on the heart of God – it grieves the heart of God! Perhaps one of the reasons is the spirit behind abortion comes from the child-sacrificing worship of the ancient demon-gods, Moloch and Baal (but that’s for another blog poast).
And, I believe God is speaking to and through His prophets at this time. In fact, while we were filming I began to see similar messages coming through my social media feed and online sites like Charisma and GOD TV. I felt encouraged by the confirmation and also shaken by the severity of the warnings!
What’s Next? The Killing of the Elderly
In February, Oregon State Legislature just signed off on a bill that allows starving mentally ill patients to death. Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the practice of assisted suicide, and at that time Pro-Life advocates feared it would lead to euthanasia. It seems that is exactly where it is leading. I shudder to think What’s Next.
Unplanned is doing exceptionally well at the box office and does a marvelous job exposing the horrendous acts of the abortion industry, while also offering grace for those who have had abortions. Several states in our nation have issued bans against abortion, in spite of the opposition from Hollywood and the ProChoice Movement.
We currently have momentum in this arena and God has called us to be victorious, but we cannot pull back now. We must not grow silent, weary or crawl back into our caves of apathy or complacency. There has always been immense warfare regarding this issue, but it has intensified. The enemies of God will not give up without a fight. There is more at stake than many realize, and warnings are being issued from within the body of Christ.
We cannot claim ignorance. Speak up for the defenseless!
Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death. Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew.” (Proverbs 24:11-12)
