Topic: Abortion, Murder and Genocide
I am pro-life. I accept the rationale behind allowing abortion when the mother's life is in danger. From my Christian perspective, though, abortion is murder and a heinous sin.
Governments that try to reach compromises have fallen into evident irrationality and propagate absurd justifications in defence of sin.
The battle of course revolves around a very simple question: When does life begin? The right of a woman to choose become a non-issue if life begins at conception. No human has the right to take another human life, period.
Conveniently, the pro-abortion side informs us that life begins when various biological events of their choice take place within the foetus. Thus some propose a few weeks, others a few months. Some have settled for three months.
I find 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.
What some abortionists propose to us is that before midnight at the end of the third month the foetus is not life, but one second later it "does" become life. Thus, if a doctor pulls a babyout of the mother a few seconds "before" midnight, it is only lifeless flesh, and thus 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, please!!!
This is the kind of surreal justifications that millions of supposedly intelligent human beings have actually adopted so as 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 at all?
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, Peter Singer. Singer writes the following, in 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 foetus.
And writing 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."

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 favourite 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.
Worst of 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 offspring.
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.
Ultimately, dear 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 occurrence worldwide.
I applaud the countless courageous and unrelenting fighters who refuse to surrender and who continue to invest their time and effort in the defence 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 preventing murder.
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 the way.
