To all those people out there who think Abortion is fine let me ask you something.....
Did the word adoption ever enter into your head? Some people I know, find that they won't be able to afford to have a kid. But even though it's harder than its sounds lets look at the bible
If a woman has a baby forming in her womb its not a choice as to if they want it or not. It's what God wants for them. For Everyone.
Abortion is wrong, I come from a big family the funny thing is that all of my relatives aren't pro-life they are pro-choice.
So if slavery is wrong and that was enslaving other human beings and treating them like animals how is it that babies are being killed so easily and with such impunity?
Don't you think God had a plan for that baby? Hm? Yeah, well he does. He has a plan for everyone.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5
Some people like to give people the advice of not having children to save them from the 'burden' and 'stress.' The funny thing is, I don't think I'm a burden to my parents and they don't think I'm a burden to them.
I have always entertained the thought of being married one day and having kids. I would raise those kids teaching them that love is the most important thing in the world, and well isn't it?
In a sense, God is LOVE and so we are suppose to love whatever he gives us. If you get married don't expect that your children will be perfect, but on the other hand don't abort them because that is frankly MURDER.
Plus, parents are suppose to be an example to their children and just think of this as an example: Baby has just been aborted walks up to heaven, St. Peter lets the baby in and God meets the baby. The baby asks why he was sent straight to heaven and God explains how some people abort their kids just because they couldn't be bothered to raise them or say that they cannot afford to. "Oh," says the baby and looks sad "I love you though." Says God and than everything is fine.
But the point remains that abortion is wrong and you can't just say "Hey my kids getting to heaven really quick because I aborted him." God has a plan for everyone. He cares for everyone and that is what makes him so awesome I might add.
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
One of the ten commandments is simply 'Thou shalt not kill' it didn't mean "Thou shalt not kill outside of the womb, but you can kill innocent little babies which are forming in the womb'.
How are you suppose to follow the two greatest commandments in the world i.e. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and Love your neighbour as yourself if you aren't showing that you care a fig about these innocent children forming in the womb. If this is your stance than I don't think I'll be able to understand your perspective of love. Or what you think love is because
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
Another thing is that Jesus came down from Heaven and died for all of us. He thought that we we're worth dying for. He didn't die just for a particular group people.
He wanted everyone who loved him to try to be like him so how do you show Jesus you are trying your best if you are breaking one of the ten commandments.
We should do just as our saviour would have us do, and love children no matter who they are or what they look like, or how God made them.
|This picture is so beautiful!!!! :D|
A lot of people ask the question of 'how can we provide for all these people?' Isn't it better just to abort them when they are babies? So as not to have to provide for them.
It's true that there are some places in the world where people have trouble finding food and are very poverty stricken. However this could be helped by very real intervention in these countries and this does not change the fact that a lot of abortions happen in well to do countries where few people are homeless or in need of food.
For those in our well to do countries who are in a situation of not enough money or family support then there are options of support groups in various churches and other organisations who will help women in this situation. Or again adoption, as many families would love to adopt a child.
A child is always a blessing no matter the circumstances.
Even in trying circumstances it would be better then we remember this:
Matthew 6:26 "Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they?"
Abortion actually damages the mothers inner organs as well!
I copied and pasted the story below from another website. I remember posting this about two years ago.
A Doctor's Wisdom on Abortion:
A worried woman went to her gynaecologist and said: "Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even one year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together."
The doctor said: "OK, and what do you want me to do?" She said: "I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this."
"I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you, too." She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: "You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the second one is born.
If we're going to kill one of them anyway, it really doesn't matter which one it is, does it?
There would be no risk for your body if you chose to kill the one in your arms."
The woman was horrified and said: "No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!"
"I agree", the doctor replied. "But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that might be the best solution.
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mum that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.
The crime is the same! Realizing this was true, the woman withdrew her request and soon found the love and support she needed at a local Church and Pregnancy Care Center. The mother and child are both alive and well today. I really love this story and I wish more people would understand that abortion is murder!
