Abortion is murder of the grossest kind. It is the shedding of innocent blood which God hates (Proverbs 6:16-17). The blood of these unborn children cries out for justice as did the blood of righteous Abel who was murdered by his brother. God said to Cain, “What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10). A God of justice will recompense!
Everyone involved in or supporting the sin of abortion is guilty of the sin of murder, including the following:
- The mother who submits herself to the abortion
- The father who supports her in having the abortion
- Other friends and family members who support the decision
- The doctor who aborts the baby
- Other members of staff involved in the abortion industry
- Governments who legislate the practise of abortion
God finds them guilty of murder of the lowest kind because these unborn children are innocent, and defenceless, in the womb. Their life is violently taken away from them in a gruesome manner before they even get a chance to experience life.
The most natural thing in the world is for a woman to cherish the life that it is inside of her. It is wicked, selfish, and blind for that woman (or anyone else) to seek any harm against that life that belongs to her. It is sin before Almighty God, the giver of all life—make no mistake about it!
God says clearly, “thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13), yet there are 40-50 million abortions (murders) each year worldwide, despite what God says. God will hold everyone including governments accountable for their part in the murder of the unborn (1 Peter 4:5).
Under the Old Testament law, if two men fought and a pregnant woman got injured, and the baby died, the man responsible was put to death, because God said, “thou shalt give life for life” (Exodus 21:22-25). This shows that God equated the death of that baby in the womb to the death of a fully-grown man. If God held that man responsible, who did not deliberately intend to kill the child, how much more will He not hold those responsible who deliberately kill the unborn child?
Don’t Do It!
If you’re thinking of having an abortion, don’t do it. Abortion is never the answer no matter what the situation. Jesus Christ is always the answer. Firstly, you need to surrender your life to Jesus Christ and be born again. Then commit your life and future into God’s hand, and he will work things out no matter the situation.
The Good News
If you have had an abortion or supported it, yes you are a murderer, but the good news is that God can forgive you. You must repent and be born again and receive forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. God will forgive you and make you a new person. Many women experience extreme guilt and depression after an abortion and also are suicidal. In such a case if that woman surrenders her life to God, then He can bring forgiveness, deliverance, and healing into that life from the effects of abortion. Sometimes even a Christian has made a decision to have an abortion, and if so that person needs to go to God and confess that sin and get right with God. These aborted babies all go to heaven because they are an eternal soul from the moment of conception, and they are innocent before God. They do not know to commit sin and are not accountable before God in this regard. This means that if a woman commits the sin of abortion, and she is later sorry and repents and turns to the Lord, one day she will go to heaven and meet her child that she aborted.
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”
(Psalm 139:13-16 KJV)
“And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.”
“For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”
Please don’t think that pro-life advocates are just being judgmental or uncompassionate. We realise that there are different situations, and some of these situations are not easy but the bottom line is what God says, and abortion is still wrong. God is the giver of life and He decides what we should do with it. It is not our decision to take life. Also, many unwanted pregnancies are as a result of fornication, adultery and other sexual sins which God is against. If these sins were not committed there would not be a pregnancy to begin with. Sin is the problem. Of course, not all abortions are carried out on babies conceived by sexual sin, but we do live in a promiscuous society (which God forbids), and this leads to many other problems.
This is not a man versus woman issue. The feminist movement wants to make everything about a man versus woman issue because they are of their father the devil, they want to spread division and rebellion, and raise themselves up to be lords over men—wicked! Men and women are both involved in conceiving a child, and both many times involved in the decisions that follow. Both need to take responsibility. The woman should not take the selfish attitude that it is her body and her decision alone. There are three persons to consider at the point of pregnancy: the mother, the father, and the child. It is not solely a female issue but something that affects everyone. Many times, it is unfortunately the father that pushes for the abortion. There are both men and women for abortion and against abortion.
It is a right versus wrong issue before Almighty God. People need to take stock of their lives and make the right decision regarding all aspects of their lives making themselves accountable to God and doing the right thing no matter what.
There are a number of pro-life and particularly Christian people who would be more than willing to offer help and support in various situations where people are genuinely struggling and need help. We are not here just to “point the finger and condemn”, but we are not prepared to submit to wickedness either that the word of God clearly condemns.
Actually, it is pro-abortion people that often get very angry and upset with us—sometimes abusive.
Many women struggle for years with feelings of guilt and depression after an abortion. Women have confessed this. So not only does abortion take the life of the unborn child, it does not do the mother any favours either. So, by being pro-life advocates we are not only reaching out for the sake of the child but the mother also. We are not necessarily against the mother, but we are against the sin of abortion. It is a sin and there is no way around it.
“If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”
“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
