After a speech, pro-life activist Penny Lea was approached by an old man. Weeping, he told her the following story:

"I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian. I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews, but like most people today in this country, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?

A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when one Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews. They were like cattle in those cars!

Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we'd just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.

"Their screams tormented us . . . If some of their screams reached our ears we'd just sing a little louder."

Now, so many years later, I see it happening all over again in America. God forgive you as Americans for you have blocked out the screams of millions of your own children. The holocaust is here. The response is the same as it was in my country - SILENCE!"

Have you ever wondered HOW people could have stood by and let the holocaust just happen? Do you wonder why the Christians in this story chose to just sing their praise to God a little louder to drown out the victim's cries?

The old man's story is in the past. The past cannot be changed. It is easy to think we would act differently now. But the old man's last words are haunting "It's happening all over again in America with abortion. The Holocaust is here."

As American Christians, we have become so comfortable in our lovely buildings and padded pews. We have beautiful fellowship halls for our many banquets. We have the latest sound equipment for our praise and worship. We have computers to keep our records. We gather together each week and shut ourselves inside our buildings. We raise our voices as loud as we can, all in the name of God.

And yet, in the heavenly realm, our voices raised in praise are drowned out by screams of agony from millions of babies who are being executed before they are born. We can't see them. We can't hear them. But it is happening right now!

Babies are being aborted UP UNTIL THE DAY OF BIRTH in this country. Their organs and brains are "harvested" for use in medical experimentation. In Wichita, Kansas, the smoke stack from the furnace of Dr. Tiller's abortion clinic belches out black smoke and the sickening smell of burning flesh. These are the bodies of 7th, 8th and 9th month old babies being "disposed of".

If the Christians in the old man's church had done something, they would have probably been killed. That is not the case with us. We don't even have that as an excuse for our silence.

Years from now will you be like that old man trying to explain your apathy as millions were led away to slaughter in abortion clinics? Or will you raise your voice and cry out in protest for those who have no voice! The choice is YOURS!


Fact: In the United States it is legal to abort a baby up until the day of birth.

Fact: In the D&X procedure babies are "partially aborted" so the head is still in the cervix but the body is out. While in this position the live baby is still considered an "abortion" therefore a non-person. The live baby's brains are sucked out and the other organs are harvested and sold to "researchers". The baby receives no anesthesia and is alive until the procedure kills him.

Fact: Every day in America about 4,400 babies die painful deaths by dismemberment, chemical poisoning, lethal injections into the heart, being torn limb from limb and now, being partially delivered and having their brains sucked out and their organs sold.

Fact: Abortion has two victims - the baby and the mother. Many women who have abortions suffer both physically and mentally. Depression, anxiety, grief, infection, sterility and even death are not uncommon as a result of the abortion.

Fact: Only 1% of abortions are performed as a result of rape or incest. Most abortions are done as a form of birth control because the baby is "inconvenient", "too expensive", or a "burden".

I found myself in danger, I cried out in despair
I prayed, "Lord let them hear me! Let just one person care!"
I raised my voice to heaven as the train kept moving on.
As we passed behind the church yard I could hear the worship songs.
I cried out all the louder to the Christians there inside
but they raised the chorus louder not hearing me outside.
I knew they heard the whistle and the clacking of the tracks
They know that I was going to die and still they turned their backs.
I said, "Father in heaven how can your people be
so very hard of hearing to the cry of one like me?"
I shouted, "please have mercy! Just a prayer before I die!"
But they sang a little louder to the Holy One on High.
They raised their hands to heaven but blood was dripping down
The blood of all the innocent their voices tried to drown.
They have devotions daily, they function in My name
And they never even realized it was I upon that train.

"For as much as you've done it to the least of my brethren, you've done it unto Me."
-Jesus Christ

1. Educate yourself! Research and study about the worldwide abortion holocaust, which is only taking place because of our silence and apathy.

2. Pray daily and ask God to show you how to help in awakening the church from its sleep.

3. Challenge your pastor to take a stand with you in preaching on and mobilizing your church to be active in fighting abortion.

4. Locate the abortion clinics nearest you, find out when they kill babies, and go there to minister by holding a sign exposing the reality of abortion and to distribute life-saving literature. Countless numbers of women have decided not to go through with the abortion when they met Christians at the doors and outside the clinics with open arms and compassionate hearts. Babies are saved when Christians act like Christians!

Meet Amber and Allison who both were saved from the murdering hands of an abortionist—thanks to Denny Green of Life and Liberty Ministries by ministering outside of an abortion clinic in Richmond, Virginia.

5. Volunteer at a local center helping young women in crisis pregnancies. Crisis Pregnancy Centers and Birthrights need help in every area - from sorting and mending baby and maternity clothes to counseling. These organizations can be found in the yellow pages under "Abortion Alternatives”.

6. Please plan to come on Repent America’s annual pro-life evangelism tour in October of each year. It is when we expose the reality of abortion and minister the life-chaning Gospel of Jesus Christ on high school and college campuses. Please contact us and let us know that you are interested in coming. We will then send you information on the tour.

7. People need to see the truth of abortion. Leave literature in restrooms, laundromats, lobbies, waiting rooms, airports - anywhere it will be read. Put it in every bill you pay. Please contact us for information on organizations which can provide you with this literature.
