SING A LITTLE LOUDER
After a speech, pro-life activist Penny Lea
was approached by an old man. Weeping, he told her the following
"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
"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
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!
FACTS ABOUT ABORTION
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
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".

BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
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.
EVERY CHRISTIAN HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO RAISE
THEIR VOICE AND DO SOMETHING TO SAVE THESE UNBORN CHILDREN
FROM BEING KILLED BY THE HANDS OF AN ABORTIONIST. IF YOUR
HEART IS NOT GRIEVED AFTER READING THIS AND NOT MOVED TO DO
SOMETHING TO FIGHT AGAINST THE MURDER OF THESE UNBORN CHILDREN,
YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN.
