You all remember Pastor Andrew Street. He gave the abortion mill in Fort Wayne, Indiana, heaven this 39th Memorial of Roe v. Wade as he conducted a press conference outside its doors. The words he spoke were so full of truth and God’s Holy Spirit that I couldn’t wait for you to read them.

39 years ago this coming Sunday, the Supreme Court of the United States of America de-criminalized this barbarism. In that infamous Roe vs. Wade decision, they declared open season on defenseless unborn children from conception all the way up to birth!
Imagine standing in your back yard and your precocious 10-year-old son comes up behind you and asks: “Can I kill this?” Your instinctive reaction would be “What is it?” If it’s a mouse, shrew or snake he found in the bushes, not that big of a deal. But if it’s his 3-year-old sister, then you certainly wouldn’t grant permission!
Anyone who would answer the question, “Can I kill this” with a “Yes” without first asking “What?” would be punishable by law if indeed a human being is the object! Yet that is exactly what the Supreme Court did in 1973. Unless you are sure that the object in question is verifiably not-human, you have no grounds to justify it’s murder!
Our own president, Barack Hussien Obama, was posed the question: “When does human life begin?” He parried the question by saying, “That’s above my paygrade.” And yet he has been a staunch and ardent supporter of abortion with his voting record. If you’re not sure, then you may not kill it!
Since 1973 medical science has done anything but verify the human embryo as non-human. Indeed, the more we have found out about the development of these little ones, the more and more we are forced to admit they are just as much a person, who needs the protection of the law, as any little defenseless child!
Abortion is not a political issue or an academic discussion, it’s a moral evil! Every Thursday morning, here at this abortion mill, 2210 Inwood Drive, Fort Wayne, the abortionist, George Klopfer, reaches into the private sanctuaries of unborn children. Without warning and without mercy he rips their arms and legs from their bodies, rips their heads from their torsos and, if the head is too large, he crushes it and removes it piecemeal.
This is unconscionable! This is intolerable! Yet we as a nation, as a state, and as a city have not only tolerated it, we have approved it! My challenge to the media this morning is not to show those of us who are standing here, but to show the babies – the babies who have been victimized by abortion. You show what has happened when war and terror strike a country; now show what happens when an abortionist strikes a baby!
We’ve outdone Hitler’s holocaust against the Jews by nearly 9 to 1! And the greater tragedy is that we’re still counting the bodies. Just yesterday there were even more mothers who went inside this mill to kill their babies.
God is the God of love and throughout the scriptures He tells His people to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. All through the scriptures He commands us to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. All through the scriptures He says, “Remember the fatherless,” and He’s told us to care for the “least of these.” He’s said, “Rescue those being led away to death, those staggering toward slaughter, O hold them back! (Prov. 24:11)” But not only have we not rescued them, as a nation, as a state and as a city, we have killed them!
Now hear the Word of the Lord:
When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; Even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. Isaiah 1:15
As a nation, we’re finding out that if you sow murder in the womb, you’re going to reap it in the streets!
We’re gathered here today to repent and to call to repentance. We’re here today to declare our sorrow for allowing this gross evil to go on. We’re here today to pronounce the obvious: The loving God of the Bible cannot and will not tolerate this sin! We’re not here to speak about the need for a cleaner clinic, increased regulation and tighter restrictions on abortion. There is but one acceptable solution: the killing must stop! This is not an issue to be relegated to the Congress, the Supreme Court or even the State House. This is an issue for the citizens of Fort Wayne. You must repent for allowing the blood of innocent children to course through your streets. You must stand against this evil because the politicians have not and will not until you do! You must speak up and speak out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. God’s will is for an abortion-free Fort Wayne!
But we’re here also to extend redeeming grace. The end of the story is not yet written for George Klopfer, or for the employees of this murder mill, or for the mothers who are contemplating killing their child. No, not even for those mothers who have already killed their baby. Jesus is not willing that any should perish, but that all will come to repentance!
His Word states:
Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, 17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. 18 ” Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool!”
Nationally, we are in dark and dangerous times. God is judging our land. If we continue to tolerate the intolerable sin of abortion, God’s judgment is going to get worse! We have come to bring this city to the awareness that God is judging our nation because we kill our young. We’ve come to say, “Enough! It’s time to quit this sin TODAY!”
But personally, grace is still available. You can be forgiven, cleansed by the blood of Jesus, and set free from all your guilt. We’ve come to offer help, real help, healing and hope through Jesus Christ. We’ve come to invite the city of Fort Wayne and its surrounding areas, and especially the pastors and churches in and around this “City of Steeples ” to stand up, stand out and speak against this intolerable wickedness! Fort Wayne, you may not, you cannot, kill your children!
