6 years ago this week, John Piper posted, " We Know They are Killing Children--All of Us Know ." 6 years later, New York has passed and celebrated a bill that would allow a mother to abort her baby up until the point that the baby was born.

ii. The end of God's appointing this day is for the manifestation of the glory of His mercy, in the eternal salvation of the elect; and of His justice, in the damnation of the reprobate, who are wicked and disobedient.
