January 19, 2018

Some might ask, if over a billion unborn souls have been sent to heaven by abortion, why should we oppose it so fervently?

Before I answer that let me say this, "We should not worry as much over the souls of the unborn as we should over the soul of America."

Here are several reasons why:

1) Abortion grieves the heart of God

Abortion preys on the innocent and defenseless which goes against the plan of God.

Abortionists make life and death decisions that are to be reserved only for God.

When you combine those factors with the act of taking advantage of young women at a very vulnerable time that grieves God! 

2) Abortion is murder

We believe that life begins at conception because the Bible says so and science affirms it. So abortion stops a beating heart.

Abortion is a direct violation of the sixth commandment, "Thou shall not kill (murder)". And to do this vile act purely to make large amounts of money makes it even more reviling. And if those atrocities are not heinous enough body parts from aborted babies are harvested for sale.

3) Abortion has ushered in a culture of death

Since we started down this slippery moral and ethical slope in 1973, we have seen a discernible decline in respect for life. 

When unborn children begin to be seen as nothing more than an inconvenience that need to be disposed of it's not long until elderly people, the chronically ill or the terminally ill become targets of euthanasia or "assisted suicide".

4) Abortion is based on lies

In order to be able to justify an act as cruel as an abortion you have to lie and delude yourself. You must tell yourself, "It is my body! No one can tell me what to do with my body!"

The truth is there are many laws that tell you what you can or cannot do with your body. So that is a bogus argument.

Also, the Bible says your body is "the temple of the Holy Spirit" so it belongs to God not you.

To make the "it's my body" argument seem more logical you have to also believe the lie that it isn't really a baby it is just a fetus - an nonviable tissue mass.

Once you believe a couple of lies you can convince yourself of others!

5) Abortion is bad policy

One of the reasons that Abortion has remained such a contentious and controversial issue is because it became law not from debate in the Congress and then votes by the House and then the Senate but it was legislated from the bench by an activist court.

It is controversial because the court twisted and tortured the 10th and 14th Amendments into saying some things they don't say in order to get the ruling they wanted from a judge they picked.

6) Abortion harms women

There is ample medical and scientific data proving the long-term risks of an abortion. Quoting statistics and numbers can make your eyes glaze over but they are plentiful on the internet.

Abortions can cause infertility for women making future pregnancies difficult.

Breast cancer, cervical cancer and uterine cancer have been traced to abortions.

Beyond the considerable physical risks caused by cancer are the emotional and psychological problems suffered by women who have had an abortion.

So, if you care about souls you MUST care about the considerable damage to the body, the soul, the mind and the spirit of a woman who chooses an abortion.

If you are pro-life you are pro-soul!
