ABORTION IS BOTH IRRATIONAL AND A GREAT CRIME
This author is
pro-life. He accepts the rationale behind allowing abortion when the
mother's life is in danger. From his Christian perspective, though, abortion
is murder and a heinous sin. He also holds that it is self-evident that for
every abortion which takes place one not only ends a life but, potentially, also a
vast number of other lives who would have descended from the killed baby.
try to reach compromises have fallen into evident irrationality and
propagate absurd justifications in defense of sin. The battle of course revolves around a very simple question: When does life
begin? The right of a woman to choose becomes a non-issue, if life begins at
conception. No human has the right to take another human life, period.
pro-abortion side (Atheists are almost totally pro-abortion) informs us that
life begins when various biological events of their choice take place within
the fetus. Thus some propose a few weeks, others a few months. Some have
settled for three months.
finds such starting points absurd, ludicrous and just plain irrational.
We are told by the abortionists in our midst that life does not begin
at conception but when they, the new gods, decide it happens. Beside the
blatant arrogance behind such a viewpoint, one cannot but be shocked by the
distorted logic used to justify it.
abortionists propose to us is that before midnight at the end of the third
month the fetus is not life, but one second later it "does" become life.
Thus, if a doctor pulls a baby out of the mother a few seconds
"before" midnight, it is only lifeless tissue, and it is therefore legal. On
the other hand, if he waits a few more seconds into the fourth month, it
would be a "living" baby, and thus illegal.
Can someone help me
to understand this absurdity, please!
This is the kind of
surreal justifications that millions of supposedly intelligent human beings
(and most atheists) have actually adopted to justify abortion. This is the
kind of reasoning that rationalizes thousands of babies' deaths worldwide
every single day.
Since the moment life begins is up for grabs, it is not a coincidence that
now some want abortion to be allowed up to the day of birth. And why not?
Since we are dealing with a personal, subjective decision, why have limits
In fact, why not
dispatch children after they are born, if they become a burden or a
nuisance? To see how far this satanic thinking has gone, let me tell you
about the views of bio-ethicist and atheist, Peter Singer. Singer writes the
Rethinking Life and Death:
Human babies are
not born self-aware or capable of grasping their lives over time. They are
not persons. Hence their lives would seem to be no more worthy of protection
that the life of a fetus.
specifically about Down syndrome babies, he advocates trading a disabled or
defective child (one who is apparently doomed to too much suffering) for one
who has better prospects for happiness:
We may not want
a child to start on life's uncertain voyage if the prospects are clouded.
When this can be known at a very early stage in the voyage, we may still
have a chance to make a fresh start. This means detaching ourselves from the
infant who has been born, cutting ourselves free before the ties that have
already begun to bind us to our child have become irresistible. Instead of
going forward and putting all our effort into making the best of the
situation, we can still say no, and start again from the beginning. (1)
When humans reject
God's plain teachings, they move into a state of irrationality and absurdity
which deteriorates gradually into insanity. Singer is evidence of how far
the human mind will go when it dares to arbitrate on moral issues that
belong only to Someone by far greater and smarter than they are.
I have been blessed with some beautiful fruit trees. My favorite is my pear
tree. It is covered with growing pears that are now too small and tasteless
to eat. They are pears nonetheless. From pollination a process began which
will culminate in full grown pears. I only have to wait and let nature take
its course, and the result will be wonderful.
The process of
human life also begins at conception. Leave the egg alone and it will go
through its own process that will finally lead to a wonderful, full-grown
baby. If you abort, you are interfering with the miraculous process of life.
You are bringing about a cessation of life -- a life that would have grown
to be an intelligent, capable human being filled with dreams and hopes.
all, if you abort you are bringing about the cessation of countless other
human lives that would have been born from the aborted baby and his or her
Without realizing it, you
are committing, or you are helping to commit "genocide."
Years ago, a
relative of mine who was undergoing great marital stress asked me if I
thought she should abort. My answer was a resounding, "No!"
My relative went on
to have a beautiful baby girl who in turn many years later had two precious
baby girls who some day will have more beautiful children.
They and their descendents would have been terminated, had I suggested that
she only think about herself and have an abortion. Thank God, I did not.
abortionists, unlike what you may want to believe, the issue is not about
"choice." The issue is about selflessness versus selfishness. Furthermore,
the issue also revolves around taking upon yourselves the right to play god
and have a say over who lives and who dies.
Please do not judge brutal dictators who were responsible for the deaths of
millions. Each time you decide to have an abortion, or each time you support
someone who has an abortion, you too become a great killer like Stalin or
Hitler. For the decision to abort will lead to the death of countless
innocent victims who had no choice.
Abortion is a great evil. It is an evil that now is being openly
supported by very influential world leaders who are contributing not only
their verbal support but also vast quantities of money to facilitate its
I applaud the
countless courageous and unrelenting fighters who refuse to surrender and
who continue to invest their time and effort in the defense of
innocent babies. Know that for every woman
who refuses to abort because of your efforts you are helping to give life
not only to that one baby but to countless others who someday will know, in
God's good time, that you were a co-worker with Him in giving life and
Your work is a
life-giving work on a grand scale; and there is no greater cause anyone
could be committed to. I am behind you all
