This week our nation should be in mourning for our missing children who will never go through the school gates. They have been deprived of their lives in the ‘sanctuary’ of their mother’s womb.
”I will never know the tides of time; For I was coming but unloved, and that my only crime. Nameless am I, a grain of sand One of the countless dead, but the deed that make me ashen grey, floats on seas of red.” [Ballad of the Unborn Child]
Nearly 10,000 5 year olds will commence their schooling this week, happy and laughing, full of the joy of life. A total of 50,000 5 year olds are expected during the four terms of 2018. Sadly around 13,170 who would have been the same age are missing. What would have been there joy and laughter replaced by a deathly silence. This represents nearly 526 empty class rooms. What a loss to our nation. They join the ranks of the 500,000 children who have been murdered in their mother’s womb since 1977. These are the children who were considered of little worth and whose lives were terminated by abortion. These are the nameless and whose only record of existence is a cold statistic in the Abortion Supervisory Committee’s annual report to Parliament of 2014.
