Michigan has shamed the nation

Just as many young Americans in the 18th and 19th centuries grew up thinking Slavery was a natural right, so we've had 50 years of young Americans being told abortion is a "right." Michigan voters have failed the country by passing issue 3, abortion as a right. We must work harder. Al Kresta of Michigan reminds us that after completing his tenure as president in 1829, John Quincy Adams was elected to the House of Representatives. There, he served for the last 18 years of his life, waging war against slavery in a pro-slavery House. "Duty is ours, results are God's," he said. The House established the "gag rule" because he introduced 900 resolutions against slavery in one day! He fought slavery because it was the right thing to do. He didn't live to see success of his cause. Just as fighting abortion is the right thing to do regardless of how successful we are in the short term.

Benjamin Rush (one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence) said that on the final judgment day God will say to all those who belong to Him through a relationship with His Son Jesus, “Well done thou good and faithful — not good and successful — servant.”
