Wow, now this is a topic....and it has been something i've been trying to wrap my head around for years. Let me start off by giving you's a little description about where and how i got my understanding of abortion in the first place.
Well i went to a christian highschool, and my christian ed teacher actually worked at a Life center, dealing with teenagers, women, abused women, etc. and abortion was something she came across many times.
Abortion....well as you all know...its something that can be looked at from so many aspects and views. My opinion....it is WRONG no matter what. There are no exceptions. I am not going to go into the bible and just pull out scripture to back up my opinion because i know most of you all here know Gods word enough to know that killing...is wrong and a sin.
Before i go further, lets define Life:
There are really two simple definitions, which also define WHEN life is actually life. You must ask yourself this question,
Is life the moment the sperm meets the egg?
Is life once the baby has been removed from the mothers womb?
This is where the whole arguments start about the issue with Abortion. Many, believe that Life isn’t officially Life until the baby has been born. That is when they think its ok to abort before the baby comes out.
The argument is, its not life because we can’t see him or her. But hang on, that’s not true, mothers can go in for tests that take pictures of babies while their in the womb, right? Everyone is excited to see the baby’s heart, small hands…etc…so isn’t that life? So by you tearing out the body in abortion, is that murder.
As a Christian, a life is from the moment of conception…as soon as that egg is fertilized…that is officially Gods Special creation. Abortion is murder…and extremely horrific at that. I don’t know if any of you’s actually know how abortion happens…but just to give you’s a little description, to hopefully help you’s understand, abortion is simply ripping out the body, out of the mothers womb. Tools are used that grab the head of the baby, and slowely it is tugged on and squashed so it can be safely removed from the mothers womb. Abortion is such a cruel process….and its soo horrific. It is clearly murder, and it should NEVER have been allowed. Not only do you destroy Gods creation, you injure the mother as well, from diseases..or simply accidents that happen during the surgery.
So, now my opinion on this matter…as some of you must already know…Abortion, in my eyes…is a cruel way of murdering something God created, just because it doesn’t fit in your life. I don’t think it is ok in any circumstances. If you got raped, or if you were sleeping around….well you know what, its not by chance that God left you with this baby. Now some of you are going to say…well then why must a mother keep a child if it was a mistake…because of rape or simply sleeping around. Well let me answer this for you…very clearly…and hopefully this lights a bulb in your mind.
I am adopted, I do not know the reasons for my parents leaving me…and I really don’t care at this point, I have a great loving family and I would like to thank God for handing me over to my parents. Now, when I hear about women aborting children, I think to myself…you know what…that could have been me. Perhaps my mother was raped….perhaps she was sleeping around and I simply entered her life when she wasn’t ready….well obviously she had the choice to abort me….or give me a chance. So if I was given a chance…then why isn’t every other baby out there given the same chances? I am very lucky to be here with my loving family…cause who knows, I could possibly not be here talking with any of you right now.
So I ask you again…do you think abortion is ok? Even if a mother was raped, or sleeping around? I hope you will answer No to both questions. If you are not ready, then you are more the welcome to hand over a baby to an orphanage or some type of organization that is willing to take care of children and find them new families.
Well that’s my story, personal but yet very understanding…abortion is wrong and wrong….and there are no exceptions. God created each and every one of us for a purpose….and YOU do not have the right to take that away from Gods children.
Hope this sheds some light on some of you,
If you have any questions you'd like to ask me, or discuss further, please just ask...don't feel afriad or shy to ask
Sorry if its abit complicated to understand, i tried to write this exactly how i was thinking it
