The Right to Life is the most fundamental of human rights for those both inside and outside the womb. Human life has lost its sanctity in South Africa as a result of tax-payer funded abortion on demand.
Friday February 1, 2013, marks the 16th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion-on-demand in South Africa. Since that tragic day, more than 1 100 000 unborn babies were murdered in the womb.
The argument for legalising abortion-on-demand was to “provide proper medical facilities for women” who risked their lives utilising the services of illegal back-street abortionists.
However, 16 years later, there is no discernible reduction in illegal back-street abortions. In fact, stickers boldly advertising illegal abortion services are prominently displayed across the city.
Peter Throp, a pro-life activist walks around the city of Cape Town pasting “value life” stickers over the illegal abortion adverts. He has been prosecuted for this while illegal abortion stickers remain prominently displayed.
“Watchmen on the Wall” will broadcast Peter Throp’s story as well as Africa Christian Action’s annual National Day of Repentance March and Prayer Vigil in Cape Town on Tuesday February 5 on TBN at 7pm.
The Church of Christ is the conscience of the nation. When the Church remains silent on issues like the slaughter of the unborn – spiritual darkness prevails and moral degeneration ensues.
The solemn procession to, and Prayer Vigil outside Parliament is a necessary reminder to government and civil society that abortion is the legalised murder of the most innocent.
Please take a stand for life! Join any one of the following pro-life events across the country and make your voice heard for the sanctity of life. Please help us revive South Africa’s moral conscience.
