It has been almost a week since nearly 100 people were killed by a lone gunman – see article. Most of those killed were youngsters, apparently with the youngest being just 14. The whole nation is in shock and disbelief that someone could have carried out this atrocity, and rightly so. All life is of value and is given by God.
However, we must not forget that Norway, like the vast majority of countries around the world, has legalised the killing of children by abortion. According to Wikipedia “Current Norwegian legislation and public health policy provides for abortion on demand in the first 12 weeks of gestation, by application up to the 18th week, and only under special circumstances thereafter.”
As can be seen from the figures here in 2008 Norway killed by abortion 15,956 babies. Between 1979 and 2008 there have been 434,581 babies killed by abortion in Norway.
Where is the outrage of the public over these deaths? Who is helping the mothers of these babies come to terms with the death of their children that took place by their own actions and with the sanction of the law? Who are the doctors that carried out these killings? Who are the people who allowed these laws to come onto the statue books? Who are the people who promoted these changes to the law prior to 1979 that have the guilt of so many deaths on their hands?
Only the Lord can heal the hearts that are breaking, whether that be the hearts of those caught up in this recent bombing and shooting tragedy or those whose children died because the law of man was placed higher than the law of God that says ‘Thou shalt not kill’.
Please see May Blossom Ministries – Christian Healing after Abortion if this has made you realise that you also are suffering from the death of an unborn baby that was killed by abortion.
This is the real Norwegian tragedy.
