Celebrating abortion? New York’s new abortion law which extends abortion to the 9th month, the actual day of delivery, is being celebrated by the Liberal Left across the country. Under this new law, the gift of life in the womb of the mother can be killed moments before coming through the birth canal. It’s the difference between a piece of skin and one breath!
What is the difference between strangling a child after coming out of the womb and killing it through abortion? We are talking about a matter of seconds and just a few inches traveled.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:21 “Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.” Our nation is being judged by God today for all the innocent lives that have been slain by the evil of abortion and it affects all of us.
Most would argue that the Bible is silent regarding the topic of abortion but there is a reason. The silence of scripture does not mean that God does not detest an evil act. We must go back to Eden to know God’s mind. The command to Adam and Eve was, “Be fruitful and multiply.” To multiply means to reproduce; to procreate; to increase. This view is in total opposition of abortion. Also, in the days of the Bible, it was an honor to have children. The more children you had, the more you were honored. Also, the Bible clearly speaks out against murder of an innocent life. And science has proven that life begins at conception.
Though America was founded on the Bible and the Christian faith, our initial laws have been changed. Given the continual downward spiral in our morals, we must re-examine our culture, our society, our religion. Who are we, where are we going and what is the end result? If we are willing to embrace the murder of an unborn child, what else are we willing to embrace? How far will this go? If we don’t change course, our nation as a whole will face the consequences.
