Every few years, especially as an election approaches, the abortion “issue”
resurfaces to garner either outrage or support from the masses. Everyone
seems to have their own opinion to offer. Supporters are left wondering when
their opponents will “get with the times,” while those who claim that abortion
is murder are wondering when the slaughter of the innocents will end.
Recently, there has been growing optimism in Pro-Life circles that hints at
victory. With new conservative justices in the Supreme Court, numerous
states attempting to pass Heartbeat Bills, and the recent theatrical release of
the “Unplanned” Movie, it is easy to hope that the end is in sight.
Those in favor of abortion are equally optimistic. While abortion in the past
was a thing of shame to be hidden and denied, today’s participants are
shouting and flouting their abortions with pride. A newer generation has risen
with far less compulsions towards the moralism deemed to have kept our
country in chains for so long. Abortion has become normal; it’s opponents
Yet, what is abortion? Is it merely the expulsion of unwanted tissue, or is it the
taking of a human life? For all the political rhetoric and dissent, the “issue”
boils down to one simple question. At what stage does it become murder to
kill a child in the womb?
“If the unborn is not a human person, no justification for abortion is
necessary. However, if the unborn is a human person, no justification for
abortion is adequate.” ― Greg Kouki
Less than ten years after Darwin published his famous book, “On the Origin of
Species,” a German zoologist named Ernest Haeckel released his drawings of
embryonic development which continue to influence the minds of many.
Backing his theory on recapitulation, Haeckel contended for evolution by
using his imagined development of the fetus through various “animal” stages.
Although quickly proven to be fraudulent, this theory has given rise to the
ethical acceptance of human abortion by claiming that the fetus is not human.
In spite of technology which allows us to view and hear our unborn children
before birth, there are still many who view the unborn as a kind of parasite
that begins life as a segmented worm then evolves through various stages like
fish, amphibian, reptile, and pig-like mammal before finally developing into a
creature that resembles a primate, but isn’t quite human. While scientific
discovery has completely proven this theory to be false, the concept is still
peddled to the masses through the teaching of evolution.
“As a physician, I know that human life begins with fertilization, and I
remain committed to ending abortion in all stages of pregnancy. I will
continue to fight this atrocity on behalf of the unborn, and I hope my
colleagues will support me in doing so.” — Paul Broun
As Christians, we believe that every child is created in the image of God and
that all human life is sacred (Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 139:13-16). In the Old
Testament the penalty for killing an unborn child was the same as that of
killing any other human ( Exodus 21:22-25). Therefore, God’s command to do
no murder, also applies to them (Exodus 20:13).
Sixty-One Million… That’s how many abortions have been documented in
America since it was legalized in 1973. Now close your eyes and observe a
moment of silence with me. If you keep your eyes closed just one second per
abortion performed, you would have to keep them closed for almost 2 years. It
may seem like just an “issue” to a politician, but in the eyes of God abortion is
nothing more than an abomination. May God forgive us for the innocent blood
on our hands!
“If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house, than in a field,…it
ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fetus in the womb
before it has come to light.” — John Calvin
