Have a Dream
Rev. Charles LaCroix
Foreword by Angela Michael, Baby Abolitionist
"Black Americans are dying at a higher
rate and the leading cause is abortion, immorality, and apathy.
We recently honored MLK Jr. day. Black History month is just around
the corner, and we are off to a shameful start as we witness daily disproportionately our
Black brothers and sisters literally being lynched right before our
eyes inside this abortion mill. Not one Black pastor, let alone the
Black community will stand in the gap because there is a fog in the
pulpit and a mist in the pews. The Black woman's womb has
unfortunately become a tomb. The worst form of racism is
to kill your own child and for the church to stand by and give its
seal of approval with the silence of their lips."
I have a dream where sanity meshes with reality. Where right
is right and wrong is wrong. Where good is called good and evil is
called evil. Where people acknowledge the true sentiments that lie
deep within the bowels of their hearts. I have a dream, where
precious little babies are held up in the highest esteem. Where they
are not denied their very lives because of age or place of
residence. Where the baby inside the womb has the same rights as
those of babies outside the womb.
I have a dream, where once again, the womb will be the safest
haven on earth; a warm and nurturing refuge. Where the intra-uterine
child can freely enjoy her playground; kicking, jumping, blinking,
sticking out her tongue: all the things her brothers and sisters are
doing on the outside.
I h have a dream, where the child is valued higher than the
purest gold, a sacred gift from our Creator. Who could reject an
offering form the creator; this gift with all her miraculous
marvels? Who could not accept this present; the likes of which has
never been seen before and never will be seen again?
I have a dream, where churches will act like churches. Where
they will jettison themselves from their comfort zones of tax-exempt
status and public respectability. Where church people will boldly
act like abortion is murder. Where shepherds will care less about
what will happen to the collection plates and more about what
happens to the souls of their flocks.
I have a dream where the laws of this country will do that
which they were meant to do: protect the rights of the weak and
vulnerable. Where there are laws which buttress life, rather than
help destroy it; laws that punish the criminal and extricate the
I have a dream, where politicians vote according to what is
morally just and not what will garner them the most votes in the
next election. Where elected public officials seek to promote that
which is good for society and not that which is good for their
I have a dream, where a society learns the valuable lessons
of the past. Where a society learns from the American slavery
tragedy and from the horror of the Nazi holocaust; that a person is
a person, no matter how much the evil forces try to suppress this
I have a dream, where a society embraces the facts given to
it by medical science which unequivocally submits that life begins
at fertilization and at no other time; a life that is uniquely its
own, with its own blood type and genetic code. Where a society
listens to such truths and acts accordingly.
I have a dream, of a society that cares more about the life
of a human being than it does of material wealth or personal
comfort. Where the sacredness of a child has more value than one’s
public image or social status.
I have a dream, where those who stand to defend life are
encouraged and not persecuted. Where pro-lifers are met with
acclamation and not with ridicule, jail sentences, loss of jobs and
homes, and degradation. Where abortionists are jailed and pro-lifers
I have a dream, where true feminists will revert back to
their original declaration that abortion is anti-woman, recognizing
that it ends one life and shatters another. Where to be a feminist
means to rejoice in the unique ability to nurture the miracle in the
I have a dream, where doctors will once again be those who
serve to uphold life and not destroy it. Where physicians will once
again be respected and trusted, and not suspected and feared.
I have a dream, where millions of couples, longing to adopt a
child of their very own, can do so without waiting many agonizing
years due to the shortage of available infants, a shortage due to
abortion. That women in difficult situations will realize that there
is always a loving family waiting to receive a much longed for
I have a dream, where the person in the womb will be
recognized for her intrinsic value and will never be punished for
the sins of her father. Where doctors will recognize that they have
obligations to both their patients: mother and child; and will never
do anything to purposely endanger the lives of either of them.
I have a dream, where public authorities follow the law that
is written in their hearts and will serve to uphold and defend human
life no matter what the statute says. Where law enforcement
officials will tell their superiors that they will not be an
accomplice to a crime against humanity.
I have a dream, of a world that recognizes how fearfully and
wonderfully made the child in the womb is, known by the Creator.
Where a child can be baptized in living waters and not in her own
Yes, I have a dream, of a world that acknowledges that God
gives life and that He alone takes it. From the
Great Wall of China
; to the land Down Under; to the land of the free; Let them live,
let them live: may mercy be upon us, let them live!
