THE ATROCITY OF ABORTION

The whole Bible teaches the sacredness of life. God commands, "Thou shat not kill" (Exodus 20:13). For life is a gift from God.

Acts 17:25 tells us, "...he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things." Human life is made in the image of God who said, "...Be fruitful, and multiply..." (Genesis 1:28).

Psalm 127:3 says, "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

Jesus taught that value of human life. He said, "...I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

Jesus further said, "Even so, it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish" (Matthew 18:14).

All true Bible-believing Christians are anti-abortionists. God says in Isaiah 58:1, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up they voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression..."

RELIGION OR POLITICS

Being pro-life is just basic decency. It is a multi-faceted issue, not just a political issue. Life is medical, social, legal, religious, etc. Therefore, abortion is an issue in all of these aspects.

Some will say, "Preacher, stay out of politics, and quit forcing your religion upon others." But abortion practitioners force their immoral mentality upon infant boys and infant girls. The Church should lead in educating the public as to what is right and wrong. Christians should actively oppose all such evils.

HUMAN LIFE

Abortion is a pitiful population control method. Do you realize that three little babies are killed every minute in the United States alone? What a callused disregard for human life. It is a solemn massacre.

Many people are outraged at the senseless slaughter of seals, whales, pelicans, and penguins. Jesus told us that, "...ye are of more value than many sparrows" (Luke 12:7).

Abortion degrades the dignity of human life. It is not just against the individual baby, it is against the human race because it is genocide.

The world is full of unwanted husbands, wives, in-laws, and the aged, but we don't have the right to kill them off. What if children killed their parents in their old age, because they did not want to support and care for them? We all have an obligation to provide a safe and sane society for our future generations.

MORALITY OR PROMISCUITY

God command, "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (Exodus 20:14). But seventy percent of abortions are unwed mothers: Abortion is a selfish act. Fornicators and adulterers selfishly indulge in sexual pleasure, then wish to kill the baby that would embarrass them. It is bloodshed in the name of convenience. Playboys grow up and raise your own offspring.

MOTHERS

Mothers who murder their babies have lustful passion, but no loving compassion. Some professional women prefer to kill their babies rather than bothering to feed them. They would rather kill the baby than accept the responsibility of parenthood because it might hinder their personal ambitions.

Any mother who deliberately kills her own innocent child lacks the normal motherly affection of a dumb dog. God condemns those who are without natural affection (see Romans 1:31).

A woman's rights do not cancel out a baby's rights. No one may have the right to choose death for an innocent victim.

DOCTORS AND NURSES

Doctors cannot play God. They must not deliberately terminate a child's life. In the Hippocratic Oath, doctors are sworn to protect life. But abortion is a multimillion-dollar business. Deuteronomy 27:25 tells us: "Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person..."

YOU WERE A BABY

Little children were precious to Christ (see Matthew 19:14). The developing child has a sense of pain, but is too weak and helpless to cry out. Abortionists are child abusers to the ultimate degree.

The baby would say, "Please don't remove me before I am ready. Just give me time to grow."

A doctor would not want to be salt poisoned.
A nurse would not want her body ripped apart by a terrible suction machine.
A mother would not want to be dismembered. Jesus taught, "...whatsoever ye would that men should to do you, do ye even so to them..." (Matthew 7:12).

MEDICAL

Justified abortions are extremely rare. Cases of rape, deformity, incense, and threat to the mother's life, are less than one percent of the one and a half million abortions done every year.

It is brutality in the name of medical science. Abortion clinics are wholesale murder houses. What a horrible nightmare!

LIFE BEFORE BIRTH

According to the Bible life begins at birth (see Job 31:15; Isaiah 44:24; Isaiah 49:1).

Luke, who was a physician, said the baby leaped in Elizabeth's womb upon Mary's greeting. So John (the Baptist) was not just a glob of cells.

Mary was an unwed, pregnant, poor girl, but she had Jesus Christ.

A PERSON

The Scriptures make no distinction between the born and the unborn, the prenatal and postnatal babies (see Luke 1:31-41).

The Christ Child in Mary's womb was not just a blob of tissue.

An embryo or a fetus is a baby!

The dictionary says that a person is a living human body. A child in the womb is living, is human, and has a body. Therefore, abortion is killing a precious living little person.

Life begins at conception. A new creature occurred at the moment of fertilization. When the father's sperm and the mother's ovum united. A brand new life began, not just an appendage of the mother's body.

COURT OR CONSTITUTION

All Americans have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. So abortion is a human rights issue that should concern all of us.

The Supreme Court violated the Constitution of the United States in 1973 by allowing abortion on demand right up until live birth, thus placing the unborn on death row. Those justices should be forced to watch the babies die.

Clearly we need a Constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to life from the moment of conception.

LEGAL

Laws are made to protect. The unborn children are part of the human family and should be protected by law. No one should be deprived of life without due process of law, yet thousands of babies are put to death everyday without benefit of trial or counsel by extremely cruel and inhuman techniques.

Such deliberate taking of human life without provocation is cold-blooded and premeditated murder. And the penalty for murder is death to the murderer (see Exodus 21:22, 23). Abortionists should be given capital punishment!

HISTORY

Pharaoh exterminated the Hebrew baby boys.
Herod slaughtered the babies in Bethlehem.
Adolph Hitler tried to exterminate the Jewish race. But Nazi Germany had nothing on this country's current bloodletting. Abortion is America's holocaust. America, where is your conscience?

Psalm 106:38 says, "And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters...and the land was polluted with blood."

Numbers 35:33 tells us, "So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, buy by the blood of him that shed it." God exterminated the ancient civilizations that sacrificed babies.

History is once again repeating itself.

Just because something is prevalent does not make it right. Abortion is wrong. It is a SIN! And sin is bringing down our nation.

Someone needs to get emotional and indignant about it. Wake up to the terrible crime of abortion before it is too late.

DIVINE JUDGEMENT

Jesus said that the Father in heaven sees every sparrow that falls, and He watches every little baby die.

Someone is going to answer for the ten million babies killed just because they weren't convenient.

The Bible tells us, "These...things...are an abomination unto him...hands that shed innocent blood" (Proverbs 6:16, 17).

Only a corrupt money hungry politician would advocate abortion, and God's wrath is upon them.

Pro-life is not a war of words and their definitions. We are talking about compassion for developing children.

Proverbs 21:13 says, "Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard."

Don't reject the Ten Commandments. Reject infanticide.

Choose life that you and your children may live (see Deuteronomy 30:19).
