Thinking about the story of Esther over the last few days. When Esther found out that her people were targeted to death, she took a stand. She had Mordecai tell the people to fast and pray for three days along with her and then she would go to the king and make her petition. In that day going to the king, without permission had a death sentence to it. She took a stand and stood alone. She went before the king by herself and made her petition.
Let’s take this story and apply it to those most targeted today. Yes, we live in a world where Christians are targeted and moral values are looked down upon. The life of the unborn is targeted every day.
Let me take you back to 1966 when Mississippi was the first state to legalize abortion only in cases of rape/incest. Girls/Women who get pregnant because of rape and the children of rape are still targets today. It breaks my heart when people can’t see the that the precious baby who is conceived in rape actually saved their mother from being raped more.
When I first started to share my story, I shared it with Rebecca Kiessling who is the founder of Savethe1.com, and I shared it with Juda Myers who is the founder of Choices4Life.org. Both Rebecca Kiessling and Juda Myers were conceived in rape and saved from an illegal abortion. They had the law to protect them. These two precious ladies have hearts of compassion and love. They educate others and help women and their children. These women need to be applaud not criticized.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have seen how cruel society is towards those conceived in rape and their mothers. There is so much hatred. Society thinks that abortion must be the only option for the rape conceived. While I have seen so much hate over the last few days, I have also seen more women who have conceived in rape take a stand and defend us.
While there is, so much hate and babies conceived in rape are targeted. There are women and children who are the Esther’s in today’s world who are rising up and standing up and having their voices be heard so that All life is protected.
If God can use one Lady, who’s name was Esther to save a Nation. Just think about what he can do with those who have been targeted since 1966 to bring an end to abortion.
