When Is Abortion Racism?

If you care about the sanctity and dignity of human life--and I hope that's all of us--then I would encourage you to read John Piper's latest sermon: When Is Abortion Racism?

Here is how he closes. I pray this message would have a ripple effect for the glory of God and the good of his creation:
I know that I am talking mainly to a white audience. But not only. Word spreads. One person could make all the difference.

O that the murderous effect of abortion in the Black and Latino communities, destroying tens of thousands at the hands of white abortionists, would explode with the same reprehensible reputation as lynching. May the Lord raise up from the African-American churches and the Hispanic-American churches a passion to seize the moral high ground against the slaughter of the little ones. Such leadership would sweep the field, and the white pro-choice establishment would fall before it. May it happen in the name of Christ and for his glory and for the good all people until the Lord of glory comes. Amen.
