Recently, we had the March For Life take place, which brought out some of the biggest crowds ever seen! Abortion is a problem in our society, and it needs to be stopped! God says that abortion is murder for you are taking a life. Aborting a baby doesn’t make the baby go away, it just makes the baby dead. There are so many others alternatives a woman can take if she does not want her baby, but she declines them because of one reason. “I don’t want to go through that” or “I don’t want my body to go through that.”
You aborting your baby doesn’t erase the mistakes you committed! In our culture today, you have women parading the streets claiming they are for women’s rights when they believe in aborting baby girls who would eventually grow up into women. The hypocrisy is astounding.
Taking a step back from our society, what does God say about this? God is the Ultimate Judge, so let’s see what He says, and I can already tell you what He is going to say.
““If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.” Exodus 21:22-25
Exodus gives us some insight to God’s ruling on abortion. If a baby dies and cannot live out the life that God gave the baby, you will be punished. These verses clearly show that God takes the life of a baby seriously. Therefore, this shows us what God thinks about our society taking away the life of the unborn.
Many people will argue with you about this. They will say that the baby isn’t alive, when in all actuality, the baby is in fact alive. People will get offended and tell you to be quiet if you’re opposed to abortion, for they do not want to offend anyone. I am not going to silence myself just because someone had an abortion. If that sin is bothering them, then maybe they should ask the Lord for forgiveness.
If you have any guilt after you did something, chances are, it was wrong. So many women feel bad for having abortions, which shows that the act is wrong. If abortion wasn’t wrong, then why are they sad about it?
“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16
Before we were born, God formed us, He knew us, and He even knew the future of our lives. God says we are alive from the moment of conception! Just because we are in the womb for nine months, does not mean we are not alive. If babies were not alive in the womb, then how did they grow? Things that are nonliving cannot having living bodily functions, the ability to grow, and the list goes on.
Abortion is turning into another Holocaust. Everyone says it is okay and that abortion does not hurt the baby, but it does. When you abort a child, you are pulling it’s limbs apart! How does that “not harm the baby?”
God is the Author of all life and of all creation. No man, woman, or thing has the power to dictate when something is to be born or is to leave the earth. When you try taking away God’s divine power, you are rejecting Him!
When you think you know more than God, you say you do not need Him. When you abort a child, that shows that you do not trust Him to guide you through your pregnancy or parenthood. God said He would never lead us into disaster, so there is no excuse to have an abortion.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
God is a just and forgiving God. He is willing to forgive you of your sins, even abortion! He sent His Son to die for us so we could have eternal life. All you have to do is accept Him and lay your sins down at the cross.
The unborn need people to stand up for them! They do not have a voice, so we have to be their voice. From 1970 to 2013, there have been 51,888,303 babies aborted! Heaven is full of babies that never got the chance to their lives! Who knows what those babies would have become. Some of them could have been the president, some could have been amazing preachers, and some could have been world changers, but they won’t be able to do any of that due to the decision of their mother.
How could people be insensitive to the unborn? Who could fight for the right to end their lives? Less than 0.5% of abortions are from rape, so most abortions are not even rape based! Most abortion are from people who go out, make a mistake, and they abort the baby because “they weren’t ready.”
“The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
Keeping watch on the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3
God watches everything, He sees everything, and He knows everything. You might think you are slick by getting an abortion in secret, but God sees that. Instead of being guilty and hiding it, confess to the Lord and accept Him as your Lord and Savior while you still have time.
No matter what our society says, I will NOT support abortion! No matter what others say, I will always be a voice for the unborn, and there are many other people who are with me on this. When we become one voice, change will happen. When we uphold Christian values, then things will begin to change. When we have the armor of Christ, nothing can take us down, so be fearless and stand up for the unborn who cannot speak for they have no voice.
