To say I dislike abortion is a major understatement. I believe in my heart that the practice of contraception through abortion is beyond unjustifiable. Let me start by saying I am not interested in the “what about rape and incest” argument because those account for less than 1% of all abortions. I don’t want to discuss the “what if the mother’s life is in danger” because that has always been legal as a medical emergency. I’m talking about the 99% of abortions in which a man and woman have unprotected (or failed protected) consensual sex that results in pregnancy. That pregnancy is unwanted and the result is the destruction of the unborn child.
Sex, as an action has ramifications. They are not negative or positive, just natural outcomes. If I throw a rock up in the air, it comes down. Throwing stones has positive and negative outcomes. If I throw it just right, I can skip is across a lake, play a game of stick ball or even kill a giant threatening to destroy my people. I can also break a window, hurt someone or myself if I throw it straight up. Sex is the same way, my wife and I have three wonderful and beautiful children. We wanted each of them and feel blessed to have them. Some people engage in sex and get pregnant with a child they didn’t particularly plan for. It’s a reality of the activity of sex, it makes babies. We have known this for all of human history, the entire animal kingdom knows this, sex makes babies. To have sex, make a baby and then destroy the baby is a barbaric and inhumane action that doesn’t belong in a civilized society. It’s unjustifiable killing of a child.
Let’s face it, birth control in our day and age works pretty good. Condoms come with built in spermicide and are 99% effective. If you get pregnant on accident, it was because you were irresponsible. That might seem harsh, but you got caught in the moment without having protection and you did it anyway. Things fail, but they fail rarely, most of the time it’s because the proper precautions weren’t taken. What we have done is allowed people to be irresponsible and destroy the new life, and let’s be clear, it’s alive. It’s living cells, living tissue, and by the time a woman knows she is pregnant, it has it’s own heartbeat. It’s a living being, a life that deserve an opportunity to live it’s life.
We have found out that planned Parenthood is taking the aborted babies and selling the body parts. There is video of a national leader of the organization talking about what parts are often sold and how they can make sure when they do the procedure, they can keep the desired parts intact. They have become a business enterprise to farm human organs and body parts, at tax payers expense. This is butchery of a human being to sell off, and it’s unconscionable. They have duped the American people, using terms like “it’s a woman’s right to choose” and having no concern for the woman or the baby. Their concern is clearly the financial gain that comes from the harvesting of human tissue with the blessing of the American people and the Government.
Christians have protested, picketed, campaigned and above all prayed. We need to continue to do these things, but we must convince others that abortion is barbaric murder. We must convince our Senators, our congressmen, our leaders and of course our neighbors. We are a government of the people and by the people. We as Americans must convince people that abortion does not belong in a civilized society. We have the means to prevent pregnancy, if pregnancy happens that we have individuals who would love to adopt and raise a baby. As a foster parent, I know there are people who wish to bring in children to their homes and care for them. Children and precious, and the idea of killing them, chopping them up and selling their parts should bother you. We must find a way to change the heart and mind of America to make this heinous activity a thing of the past.
