There have been many ways over the eons of time that people have attacked life in the womb. We know that in scripture during the time of Moses’ birth, Pharaoh took it upon himself to pass an edict that destroyed male children at birth. Also during the birth of Jesus, King Herod passed a law that all male children be murdered that were two years old and under.
It’s not a new concept that Satan is out to destroy the offspring of mankind, and he will attempt to camouflage it in a manner that society as a whole will except it.
Spring forward to our modern history in the United States of America and we find more disturbing news on this subject.
There is a term called Eugenics that finds itself in the ranks of this awful behavior. The term Eugenics, was first coined by a man named Sir Francis Galton back in 1883, he was a half cousin to Charles Darwin.
What he meant by Eugenics was the idea of breeding a superior race of people. Which simply meant that those who were not of this superior race would be eliminated. He began to promote this idea in England and it soon reached the shores of the United States of America.
The target of this elimination of course was the poor and uneducated, those with criminal backgrounds, the “unwanted of society”. I was blown away to discover that before World War II in America thirty two States, Indiana being the first, had adopted Eugenics programs. California was the worst with 20,000 sterilizations on the so called “unwanted” from 1909 up until as late as 1960. I was also blown away to find out that Hitler and the Nazi party, were inspired by the American program in California concerning the practice of Eugenics in their slaughter of 6 million Jews.
After World War II was over, many States in America disbanded their Eugenics programs because they saw the devastating and horrific effects from its practice through the Holocaust of the Jews in Nazi Germany.
All except one State, North Carolina which carried on a vigorous program of Eugenics that targeted mainly African Americans, whom they considered not fit to produce offspring.
They were in essence playing God, totally ignoring the Genesis mandate to, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth”, our own US constitution gives everyone the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. From 1929 till 1974, North Carolina had in place their Eugenics program resulting in 7,600 sterilizations of men and women, most without their consent.
This is a recorded fact in the ugly history of the United States of America. There are testimonies to prove that this practice of forced sterilization was carried out mainly on the African American population in North Carolina. As late as October 2014, after a 15 year battle, survivors received their first installment of a 50 thousand dollar settlement with the Sate of North Carolina.
When a society stops valuing the sanctity of life it won’t be long until that same society is ultimately destroyed. As believers in Jesus Christ it’s our eternal duty to stand up and speak out against wickedness in our society.
The word of God says in the last days, “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” II Timothy 3:13. We must do the work of a watchman and shine in this world, just shine!!!
