PRO-LIFE POSITION ILLUSTRATED


Red Deer Life, February 13th, 2011. The reason why pro-choice feminists try to banish pro-life illustrations is because a picture is worth a thousand words. A picture like this one is a one thousand word proof that the object that a pregnant woman carries in her womb is a person. Is fetal surgery being performed here on life or on non-life? on a person or a thing? The hand is connected to a person who lives. That’s why surgery is being performed. The fetus has the worth of life. 

What justification can anyone proffer for one fetus getting operated on to improve its life, while the next fetus is crushed prior to its birthday? Is choice, all by itself, a virtue? even the queen of virtues? If it is, then we may choose to do whatever we please. We may defend life and foster it; or we may attack life in order to end it. One choice is as honorable as the other, then. And this rule, when logically extended, puts all life in jeopardy. In order to protect all life, we must be clear on what life is and when life begins, and then value life by legislating death to anyone who dares to end it. Life, especially defenseless, rudimentary life, is so precious that the evil, arbitrary choice to end it ought to be made an illegal act that is punishable by death. A choice for ending pre-born life should be threatened by the legal sentence of death. We should lobby for no less than that.

When an abortion is committed (I use the word ‘committed’ because abortion should be treated as a crime), limbs, torso, head, and heart are broken, torn, and mangled; life is ended; and a soul is returned to God as if he were at fault for generating it. There will be hell to pay, literally, for babies who are ripped from their sanctuary and thrown away. When the womb is gutted, murder is committed. There may be no punishment for the crime right now. But God will require his own pound of flesh hereafter: ‘life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.’ Law exists, whether man regards it or not. The law of God regards life so much as to require life for life. God will not wield his law by halves on judgment day.

Be sure and get your sins forgiven, for each one of us is guilty of disregarding life at some time, whether in thought, word, or deed. Sin must be judged, and it will be. It must be lasting bliss or endless woe for each one of us. There is no in between in eternity. We must go to heaven or hell based on our faith in Jesus Christ or not. Do you have confidence in him to forgive you your sins? In the end, the aborted life regretted most could be your own. Be on the forgiven side. “Whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins” (Acts 10. 43.)
