In 2015, 638,169 abortions were performed in the United States. 638,169 children were murdered before ever seeing the light of day. It’s honestly somewhat barbaric.
Clearly, I don’t believe in abortions. I don’t, unless the mother’s life is in danger, and abortion is the only option to save her. Otherwise, it’s absolutely horrific, and my heart hurts for every child so brutally killed every year.
Why do so many women see it as the only option, or it’s the first thing that comes to their mind? Why should stopping a heart, a heart that beats just the same as the mother’s own, be the answer? What did these unborn children do to make them worthy of death so early on in their precious lives?
Nothing. And that’s why it’s so horrible.
I suppose popping a pill is a quick and easy option for women who had sex, got pregnant, and want to continue their lives as normal. They’re not ready for a baby, and that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with that, what’s wrong is the way they choose to deal with it.
So many couples in the United States cannot conceive, due to fertility issues. How many of these couples would do just about anything to get one of these babies that mothers are killing inside themselves every year? People want to adopt, and people are getting pregnant and not wanting the baby. People who would even get paid for giving up the baby.
And yet, they choose to spend money on a pill, and then they go about the rest of their day as if nothing at all has happened.
Many of these women, even, are Christians, who claim to follow God’s teachings.
And God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fertile and multiply.’
God tells us to multiply, to inhabit the Earth He has created for us and keep it beautiful. It can be said that it is simply our duty to Him, to create children.
Upon thee was I cast from my birth, and since my mother bore me thou hast been my God. Be not far from me, trouble is near and there is none to help.
God considers us humans from the moment of conception, even when we still inhabit our mother’s womb. We are His children, and from the moment we begin to exist, He loves us.
He said to him, “Which?” And Jesus said, “You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness…”
Jesus tells us in no uncertain terms that murder is wrong, and we should not commit it. It’s the ending of the life of one of he people He loves, so of course he would do anything but endorse it! And if we are humans, whom He loves, from the moment of conception, then ending a child’s life before it even enters the world is indeed murder.
But that doesn’t answer the question: why do so many women each year do it?
And despite the title of this post suggesting I’ll have some grand answer to present- I don’t. Other than the obvious, that these women do not want/are not ready for children.
The answer I give is how to stop them from making this horrific decision.
It’s simple, and quite obvious.
Teach them about how Jesus would feel about them killing their babies. Show these verses, and the many, many others, as evidence that this is not what He wants for His children. Tell them, in no uncertain terms, that what they’re doing is murder, and that they should simply carry the child to term and allow it to be adopted.
It’s our duty, as Christians, to teach God’s word, and therefore, to teach young women not to kill their babies.
So if you see a woman who’s going to get an abortion – do not try and sway her with threats. Sway her with God’s word, which is the truth. It always has been, and always will.
