Abraham Lincoln said it:
“I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.”(House Divided Speech, June 16, 1858, upon accepting the Illinois Republican Party nomination for U.S. Senate)
And can our nation continue to exist today, half choosing life for preborn children and half choosing death for preborn children?
Lincoln spoke prophetically in his speech. The poem “Prayer for the Preborn Child” (see below) speaks prophetically to us today. The word “Nuclear” that we hear in the news appears in the poem that was first published 39 years ago.
The Lincoln Memorial is our nation’s monument to “EQUALITY”. From its steps this January, we need to make the case for the equal humanity and personhood of the preborn child.
