ABORTION FACTS

Post  dove on Fri 21 Sep 2007, 11:54 pm

The true facts about abortion come straight from God Himself. Facts on abortion can be found in many places. Researchers have statistics, medical doctors have medical histories, and many women share their own detailed facts. The Bible makes it clear that abortion is murder because various passages verify the fact that human life begins in the womb at conception. Looking at the Bible's teachings on human life, clearly one sees that no matter what our nation's laws permit, God does not permit the murder of the innocent. Although He will forgive, people have to understand that abortion isn't an option when it comes to an unwanted pregnancy.

While not obviously stated in the Bible, and with no specific reference to facts about abortion, the choice is a sin. There are many specific sins that the Bible doesn't reference. For example, the Bible makes no mention is ever made of stealing one's identity online, but this would fall under the commandment, "Thou shalt not steal." In just the same way, murder is mentioned in the Bible. Among the commandments, Exodus 20:13 says, "Thou shalt not kill." Murder is a broad label meant to cover the intentional termination of any human life by another human being. This medical procedure is the intentional termination of a human life. Thus, the facts on abortion prove the procedure is murder.

The Bible's teachings make clear that the human fetus is a person. A developing toddler is no less of a person than an forty year-old man. The fetus is clearly not just another part of the woman, but an individual being. The child is not a tumor or diseased organ to be removed. Rather, the human fetus has a heartbeat at seven weeks and, at three months, the baby's organs are formed and almost functional. One might argue that having an abortion before seven weeks justifies that they are not destroying something with a heartbeat. Medical facts on abortion shows that even at three weeks, the brain, heart and spinal cord are developing. No one can deny that the process is terminating a life no matter when the abortion takes place. Facts about abortion and fetal development can affirm this.

The Bible often refer to the womb as the starting place of life. Psalm 139 4-6 says "For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it." God knew us even before we came into this world. The book of Psalms confirms that we were sinners, even in the womb: "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me." Animals are not sinners, nor are our individual body parts the sinning instigators. No, only the souls of human beings are considered sinners willing our parts into sin. Psalm 139:13-15 says "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth." Humans aren't made human after they're born. They are formed meticulously by God in the womb. Facts on abortion prove that the use of 'pro-choice' denies the teachings of God.

Another of the facts from the Bible is that babies within the womb are acknowledged in the Bible as living beings. In Luke, we see not a reference to a fetus, but to a babe when Elisabeth heard Mary arriving and her baby within her 'leaped in her womb.' The babe in Elisabeth's womb was actually aware of the good news of the conception of the Messiah and reacted to the Holy Spirit. The Old Testament even shares this acknowledgement as the words of Job remind us that the fetus is a living person. How could something that isn't living die? Naturally, the fetus is a living being in the womb, susceptible to death like any other living creature which contradicts the pro-choice side's facts about abortion.

The Bible makes it clear that life begins in the womb at conception. The Psalmist indicates that God knew him while still in his mother's womb. From the womb, humans are sinners under God's influence and reign. Thus, the termination of a fetus is the murder of a human being - no different from shooting or stabbing an adult to death. Making the choice to abort is no different from making the choice to pull the trigger. Mothers have to understand that they hold the life of a human being in their hands. They don't have to choose abortion. In America, we are blessed with the options of parenthood and adoption. Mothers do not have to make a choice to be regretted for a lifetime. Understanding facts about abortion, based on the Bible, makes it clear that we are made in God's image and meant to live a life that glorifies Him.
