A Note from the Author
In the coming months, a series of discourses on abortion will be published below under the heading “Let Them Breathe: The Discourses.” These writings will use Biblical and cultural precedents to establish why abortion is such a travesty. My aim is not to indict those who have had an abortion; rather, the purpose is to display God the Father’s will towards the unborn and if possible, change someone’s moral perspective on the issue.
“I am guilty of promoting the archaic agenda to protect the innocent. I have committed the offensive crime of advocating for the fetus to be recognized as a precious human life rather than a glob of tissue. I lobby for the seemingly despotic vision to see the unborn as they were intended—free to breathe.”
Like Dr. King Jr., I too have a dream—that one day, little boys and little girls would join hands together with the knowledge that in a former age, they would have been aborted, yet they breathe because of pro-lifers long before them.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Unconditional Surrender: The Abolition of Abortion
“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”-Ezekiel 22:30
Who will stand for the Unborn? The bell has been answered by pro-lifers over the years, and the foundation has been laid. However, just as the enemy harassed Nehemiah when rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem, the secular left has bullied, mocked, and jeered. Already, pro-lifers spanning multiple generations are uniting and pushing ahead to end the tragedy that Roe v. Wade instituted. My vision is to support the pro-life movement in states across America and abroad.
Emancipation of the Unborn
I’ve coined the term “Let Them Breathe” as a way to communicate my heart’s desire for the babies whose lives hang in the balance. That desire is to know that these babies are permitted to simply make it out of the womb. It’s a call to all the prospective mothers to allow their babies to simply breathe and willingly reject abortion—even if it’s an option.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” -Genesis 1:27
