This little baby boy was found frozen in a jar with
three other little children at an abortion mill in Dallas, Texas, in February
1993. We were stunned when we found him. There were jars upon jars of frozen
children in that abortion mill. Rhonda Mackey, our executive secretary, brought
this one jar out and asked me what we should do with it. I had no idea, but I
instinctively knew we could not leave it there. We brought the jar to Dr.
McCarty, a wonderful ObGyn in Dallas, who put the pieces of this baby and the
others back together.
The entire process was put on video as Dr. McCarty, and all who were present,
wept at the reconstruction of these precious children. The life that was once
there was now gone forever. It became apparent to all of us that God had given
us these children, one in particular, to show to the entire world the horror of
abortion. One picture can speak louder than a truckload of words.
We prayed, and asked God to allow this little boy to speak to our nation. We
remembered the scripture in Hebrews 11:4: "...he still speaks, even though he
is dead." It was upon a very specific revelation from our Lord that we had
the picture of one baby blown up to poster size. Rhonda asked me if she might
have the privilege of naming this little baby boy. She prayed, and God gave her
the name that this child would become known by all over the world - Malachi!
This name strikes terror in the hearts of those who kill children, for they
know that this child, more than anything else, reveals the incredible horror of
what abortion really is.
Yes, he has done that and so much more! Though he is dead, yet he still
speaks! Thousands upon thousands of children have been saved because of his
precious little life. It lasted only 21 weeks, yet fathers are now joining the
battle to defend the defenseless.
We buried Malachi at the Cemetery of the Innocents in Dallas, Texas, in the
summer of 1993. The funeral was held at the mammoth front portico of the Dallas
City Hall. Hundreds gathered to pay their last respects to Malachi. We loved him
deeply though we knew him not. When those in City Hall realized that we were
having a funeral for a real child they demanded that the Dallas Police put a
stop to the whole funeral. Captain Kowalski, the head of SWAT in Dallas, told
his superiors that he would in no way violate this funeral. This man, who had
arrested us on several occasions, now joined with us in honoring the life of
this one small (so very small) child. He stood for Jesus. HE STOOD!
When he relayed to me that he would not interfere with the memorial
service, nor would he allow anyone else to interfere, I wept. I wept because
I knew that Captain Kowalski was now taking his stand and all his officers knew
it - all City Hall knew it! I wept because I knew that Malachi was beginning
his missionary journey and that he was already fulfilling the purpose, for his
Listen to these words, you mothers and fathers who have aborted your
children. Listen to these words you, who have failed so miserably and found
there is no way to undo the wrong you have done. Hear the word God and your
child are speaking to you: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for
good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." Genesis
If you know the mother and father of Baby Malachi, would you please tell them
that God is using him powerfully to speak for those who cannot speak for
themselves? Will you please let them know, that though they intended him harm,
God is using it for good? Will you please tell them that God loves them and that
the guilt that has driven them so far from Him can be overcome in one divine
moment? Please let them know that it is time to come home to Jesus.
Malachi means My Messenger. Malachi's message is that the killing of
innocent babies must stop!
