Mourning for the Unborn Children

Jeremiah 31:15 This is what the LORD says: "A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more."

How do we feel when we find out babies are being killed in their mothers' wombs? Are we bothered? Does it matter to us?

The Bible says "Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted because her children are no more."

Are we weeping for the children who are no more?Children are being killed in the wombs of mothers in the Philippines.

Many go to Quiapo church to buy "pamparegla" herbal concoctions from the stalls selling herbs. "Pamparegla"? That means "to induce menstruation". Pregnancy stops a woman's menstruation. "Pamparegla" is from the "damong maria" plant-and it is an abortifacient. But these same stalls are also selling (illegally and unconstitutionally) pharmaceutical-company-made drugs for abortion(black-market prices). they even have "sales agents" who approach guys walking around the quiapo church. they actually say "pampalaglag?" ("abortifacient?") to these innocent bystanders. In Kamias, Quezon City near EDSA there are also herbal sellers who sell "pamparegla" concoctions.

Lord, we weep greatly and mourn as Rachel did- for her children were no more. Impart to us Your compassion for the unborn!
