Abortion is evil

Now that I have your attention, I would like to turn it to a couple stories I have read recently.

The first is of a boy named Charlie: the real “boy who lived”. Born a mere 23 weeks into his mother’s pregnancy, he was not expected to live long at all. Now, five years later, he is a boy who is full of life. Read the whole story here.

The next is more horrific than what we usually think off when we hear of abortion (if that’s even possible). Have you heard of Pregnancy Reduction? What if you actually wanted a child but ended up with twins? Well, in some places it’s possible to have your wish after all. Read about Pregnancy Reduction here.

We have heard every excuse for why abortion should be legal. From “I was raped and shouldn’t have had this baby anyway” to the more selfish “I don’t have time/money for a baby”. None have sufficed to convince me of the necessity and ethicality of abortion.

So what are some reasons you mind give instead? Church, I can think of some great reasons to stand against abortion:

  1. Everyone is made in the image of God (including that child whose face has begun to form at six weeks).
  2. Your life is not about you, it’s about the glory of God- which possibly will include children.
  3. Adoption is a beautiful picture of God’s grace. We should be active in this area.
Let’s pray that we will be bold in the face of this brutality.

One thought on “Abortion is evil

    Abortion is the secret tool of Satan. First it is a sin, transgrassion of the word of God, you should not kill. Second, the cause of abortion is the guilty consciousness behind the sin of adoltery. One can not erase a sin by sin but by the grade of God and the Blood of Jesus.

    Abortion is sin.

    The Blood of Jesus Christ His Son Cleanseth us from all Sin. – 1 John 1:7
