One of the most urgent and important issues confronting the Church today is the right to life of pre-born babies.

The Un-Choice
According to the Elliot Institute, up to 83% of abortions are unwanted. 64% involve coercion. Abortion is the un-choice. It is unwanted, unsafe and unfair.

You can save lives!
The 1st of February will mark the 23rd anniversary of the legalisation of abortion on demand in South Africa. Since 1 February 1997, more than one million, seven hundred thousand babies have been killed in South Africa - by abortion - legally. On 2 February 2020, all churches are encouraged to observe a solemn and serious time of Repentance and Prayer for the national sin of abortion.

Abortion Holocaust
A growing number of Christians worldwide recognise the abortion holocaust as one of the greatest crimes being committed in the world today. In fact, abortion is South Africa’s hidden genocide. The most dangerous place in the world is not Egypt, Syria, Nigeria, Iraq, Congo, Sudan or Zimbabwe. The most dangerous place in the world is the womb. Pre-born babies are being killed in their mother's wombs at a greater rate than any other section of society. It is an urgent priority for the Church to expose, oppose and end this war against children made in the image of God.

Recognising Reality
Abortion is the violent murder of an innocent and helpless person. Gregg Cunningham of the US Center for Bio-ethical Reform says, “Abortion represents an evil so inexpressible that words fail us when we attempt to describe its horror. Abortion will continue to be trivialized as ‘the lesser of two evils’ or perhaps even ‘necessary evil’ as long as it is allowed to remain an invisible abstraction.”

Wake the Sleeping Giant
According to the South African Christian Handbook there are about 30 million churchgoers in South Africa. If most of these churchgoers could understand what the Bible teaches about when life begins, the sanctity of life and our Christian responsibility to stand up for the right to life of the pre-born - then we could save many thousands of babies from abortion.

Mobilise for Life
Most of the medical personnel in our country are church members. Most mothers go to church. Most voters in South Africa claim to be Christians. If Christians in South Africa could stop and look at the abortion holocaust in the light of Scripture; if we could understand something of the heart of God on this disgraceful abomination - then we would be roused to action.

"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this', does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will not He repay each one according to what he has done?" Proverbs 24:11-12

Speak Up for those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves
There are over 150 000 churches in South Africa. There are about 300 000 ministers in the country. If just half of them could be inspired to study what the Word of God says on when life begins and what abortion is; if only half the churches in South Africa observed Sanctity Life Sunday in Bible study, repentance and prayer - then we could begin to end the legalised killing of babies in South Africa.

“Could you men not keep watch with Me for one hour?” Matthew 26:40
