Roughly 3000 people died in the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.
Total number of military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan – approximately 5000.
Number of innocent babies murdered every day in the United States alone: 4000. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
In no way do I mean to belittle those who have given their lives in service to our country or those whose lives were taken away by cold, heartless killers on 9/11. I simply hope that this shows you the vast number of abortions that are performed everyday in the US.
Pro-abortion liberals love to say that they think abortion should be “safe, legal and rare”. Which begs some questions. If there is nothing wrong with abortion- if you aren’t really killing a child, just a fetus – then why should it be rare? Why not perform them as often as we can? If you say something should be rare, then you are at least admitting that it might be a questionable practice. They love to say that they wouldn’t have an abortion, but they think that others should have the right to. Well, now, I certainly wouldn’t commit rape, but maybe others should have the right to. What if rape were safe, legal, and rare?
They love to throw that guilt trip on you and say, “But what about rape, incest, and cases where the pregnancy will kill the mother?”. I mean what kind of a person are you to say that all those people who are raped have to keep their babies? Abortions due to rape and incest combined only account for less than 5% of all abortions. (Most sources actually say it is only 1%). That would mean the other 95% of abortions (3800 per day) are due to people using abortion as birth control.
So the way that liberals get around the fact that abortion is murder is that they claim that the baby inside the womb isn’t a baby. No folks, that is just a fetus. It is not legally considered a baby until it is born. Forget the fact that it has a heartbeat at about 4 weeks after conception. Forget that most babies can survive outside the womb by weeks 25-28. One liberal told my husband that a fetus was like “a car without a driver.”
Let’s talk about partial birth abortion. President Obama thinks it is wonderful. This is the process where the baby is delivered except for the head which is still inside the mother’s body. This way they can say it isn’t born yet so it isn’t really a baby yet. Then the doctor takes a sharp instrument and stabs it into the baby’s brain, killing the baby. Then the baby can be fully delivered. Absolutely horrific.
There is also the little matter of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. This was a measure that was to protect babies who “accidentally” survived abortion. This measure stated that the babies could not be killed or left to die after they were “accidentally” born. President Obama opposed a similar measure in the Illinois Senate. He obviously feels that even though the “fetus” has been born and is now a “baby”, it still deserves to be murdered. After all, he stated that he wouldn’t want his daughter to be “punished with a baby”. Aw, isn’t that sweet?
The Bible says that God created man in his own image. Obviously God holds human life to be very special. “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee. And before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee.” Jeremiah 1:5 KJV “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30 KJV
I believe that life begins at conception. Having been pregnant twice, I absolutely cannot believe that the little people I felt kicking around in my belly were not of any value. Not real people. Not human. I believe that God created each life. Do I think that if I were raped, it would be easy to keep that baby? No, I don’t think it would be easy, but I truly believe that God would not give you a baby that he wanted you to kill.
What if you have already had an abortion? Jesus died for this sin too and offers you forgiveness and salvation when you believe in him. If you are not already a member of a church, contact a local Christian minister and ask for help and counseling. If you are struggling with whether or not to have an abortion, please know that there are other options. I currently know several families who would love to have a baby to adopt. You can birth your baby and give it a nice home. God created this child and would never want you to murder him or her. Please explore your options with a caring Christian counselor. If you go to Planned Parenthood, you will probably be talked into abortion.
Vote your conscience! Tell your representatives that Abortion is wrong, and you will not support murderers on Capitol Hill. God does not take murder lightly! If you are a Christian and vote for pro-abortion politicians, I wonder how you reconcile that with God’s word. You will be held accountable. After King David ordered Uriah killed in the book of 2 Samuel, David confessed to murder. He did not kill Uriah with his own hands, but his words were responsible for his death. When you vote pro-abortion, your words are murdering innocent children. You, like David, are guilty before God.
