Should abortion be used as a method of birth control? God forbid! Should abortion be used to encourage fornication and adultery? Whether it should or not, the availability of abortion encourages both. That is what it does for many women, with the approval of many men.
Is abortion murder? If the fetus is in reality a person, or even the embryo of a person, when that fetus is aborted, isn't that the killing of a person? Isn't that murder? At least, it is the beginning of a person? I am told that with conception there is inherently the "making" of a person. Isn't that a fact? Suppose that fetus had been YOU, what would be your answer regarding that abortion? Why is it held to be wrong to "kill" the fetus in the last trimester, but not wrong if done in the first trimester? Is "it" a person in the last trimester, but NOT a person in the first trimester?
In fact, why not do as was done in some ancient countries, carry the fetus to term and then kill it? What difference does it make whether the child is murdered in the first, second or third trimester, or, after birth? Or, perhaps take the new-born and leave it in front of a public building for someone else to pick up and rear, as I have read was done in some ancient countries. Wouldn't that be better than killing the child?
Many women claim that they have full and complete rights over their own bodies. This sounds like the woman has absolute control and can have an abortion even without her husband's (or the man's) knowledge or even over his strong opposition. No doubt many women who secure abortions keep this from their husbands or whoever the father is. Isn't the father entitled to a voice in what is done in such a serious matter? After all, a "father" was involved. One thing for sure, the woman did not become pregnant by herself, without some "assistance" from a man!
Women claim that they have full and complete rights over their own bodies. To a large degree that may be true, but is not a father "involved" in the conception? Does the father have no voice or rights in this vital situation? A woman who aborts her husband's child without his knowledge in not only a "murderer," but a deceiver! Many women and girls, who become pregnant (by accident?) and do not want a child, are urged to secure an abortion -- "kill the fetus" (child)! In many cases, the parents of the girl do not know it has happened. Thus deception is added to the sin of fornication and murder! God will eventually deal with those of such callous minds.
Apparently abortion has been around to some lesser or greater degree almost from the beginning. With increasing sin and wickedness all such evils seem to increase. Morals are more and more ignored in our day. Passing out free condoms by the schools and other organizations is tantamount to approving fornication and adultery. Certainly it encourages such sins.
Many children through the ages have suffered in horrible fashion because of callous, unloving parents. The child molester (abuser) is a villain! Perhaps the most inhuman, vicious attack upon little girls is to be "sexually abused" by the father, older brother, other relative, or a male friend of the family. Such is even done to infants, I am told. It is a horrible evil and the guilty should be made to pay the price for his violation of the child. And the molestation of little boys is a sin/evil of the same magnitude. Make eunuchs out of these repeat child abusers that will stop this sin and child abuse!
Sodomy, homosexual practices, lesbianism, and all other perverted forms of sexual activity fall under the condemnation of God. (See Romans 1:18-32:1 Cor. 6:9-11.) Many passages m the Old Testament scriptures show clearly the condemnation of God upon those who do such things. For example: "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. And you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall a woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion." (Lev. 18:22-23.) "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness in upon them." (Lev. 20:13.) God had no mercy upon those who practice such wickedness because it tends to spread and the evils that come from it are many.
These types of sins seem to be on the increase in our day and are even defended by many as perfectly normal and right. The increase of such sins has always preceded the fall of many nations; indicative of the moral corruption of the people. Homosexuals are demanding "protection" from the government in hiring for jobs; that their ungodly lifestyle should not be a reason for rejecting them. Employers must let them come in and "spread" their God-condemned lifestyle. No male is "born" to be homosexual nor are females born to be lesbian, but it can be acknowledged that some are born with the proclivity toward such; and unless they recognize this reality and control it they can fall into these sinful lifestyles.
A nation that does not protect and properly treat its children does not deserve to remain a nation and it won't! It will self-destruct to be taken over by others. America has many clear signs that the nation is getting more and more like Sodom and Gomorrah! Remember those cities? These God-condemned sins and all other like sins (Gal. 5:19-21) will damn a person and a nation! It is time for those who stand with God to rise up and stand together against these increasing evils. NOT against the victims of such, but against the sin itself. They deserve our help and compassion if they will accept it.
Vote out those in Congress, and in other high places, who practice such and/or who refuse to stand against such ungodly behavior, and they are there! Christians must teach and train their children in the way of the Lord and make clear to them God's condemnation of such sins and sinners. Warn them of the dangers that they face in today's increasingly wicked society. CAH
