Psalm 94 and Abortion

I read Psalm 94 today, and had an unshakable thought that, "This psalm was written about abortion."  
Verse 6 reads, 

They kill the widow and the sojourner, and murder the fatherless.
  
Verses 20-21 say, 

Can wicked rulers be allied with you,
those who frame injustice by statute?
They band together against the life of the righteous
 and condemn the innocent to death.
  
Abortion is condemning the innocent to death.  It is taking the life of the righteous.  The United States government has "framed injustice by statute" by legalizing abortion.  But this psalm does not end without hope.  Psalm 94 does not end with unjust rulers trampling over the lives of the innocent; it ends with the LORD restoring justice and taking vengeance on the wicked.  
Verses 22-23 read,

But the LORD has become my stronghold,
and my God the rock of my refuge.
He will bring back on them their iniquity
and wipe them out for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will wipe them out."
Let us pray for the end of abortion.  Only God can wipe out this evil from the land.  If we pray, I believe that the rock of our refuge will answer our prayers and end abortion.
