I’m 100% against it. Yep, 100%.
“Well, what about in the event of rape or incest?”
Here’s my reasoning. God creates all life and God doesn’t make mistakes.
Even in the most horrific of circumstances, their is always hope, life, love, forgiveness and blessings if you pay attention.
Jesus was perfect and innocent of all sins. He was tortured, beaten, mutilated, savaged, ridiculed, pierced, nailed to a chunk of wood to die an agonizing and lingering death, separated from God, and overwhelmed with the sins of all mankind. The result of all that terribleness is Eternal Salvation to all who believe.
This is why I don’t understand any Christian who supports Abortion. If you say abortion should be legal, you are saying God made a mistake, and you are correcting it. What kind of foolishness is that?
But they almost always use the Rape/Incest scenario. Which is a very small percentage of all abortions. And that tiny bit of ‘justification’ gives evangelical support to legally allowing hundreds of thousands of babies to be dissected, alive, in the womb ever year. So you had a child conceived through rape or incest – that child is a blessing, not an evil little monster inside you to be torn apart and sold for parts. If you can’t mentally handle it, I get it. But there is adoption, and that child is innocent of their parents sins.
Then there is the ‘save the mothers life’ scenario that always comes up. Which is also a very small percentage of abortions. And for Christians, this should be another “No Duh” moment. Because, ya know, Jesus died for YOU. What’s your excuse?
I love my wife. She’s awesome. I could never find anyone better, and I certainly don’t want anyone worse. (That last part sounds weird, but you know what I mean.. I hope.) But when she was pregnant with our daughter, if I had been told my wife would die if she didn’t have an abortion, I would have told them, “No – Try harder or find me another Doctor.”
Because, honestly and bluntly, if you aren’t willing to sacrifice your life and happiness for your kids, regardless of if they are unborn or 18 and obnoxious – you suck.
And if we care so little about the most innocent and precious of life, regardless of the circumstances of the knocking of boots, the hindrance on your free-spirited lifestyle, or the risk of your life, why should we care about each other? Does unborn life have value and dignity, or is it only conditional? If you think it is conditional, that means ALL life is of conditional worth dependent totally on the whims of whomever they are the biggest burden on.
If you can’t raise a kid… And there’s a lot of people out there who certainly shouldn’t, there are 36 people who are looking to adopt for every child available. If Society/Politicians/Celebrities want something to fix, look at fixing the fiasco of children aging out before being adopted when there are around 2,000,000 couples waiting on a list right now.
And this irks me to no end – The left will use the argument that conservatives, “Only care about the unborn, until they are born.” I don’t know what that garbage is about. It makes me scratch my head. Do parents suddenly NOT have a responsibility to provide and care for their children? I know I DO for MINE. I don’t want anyone else looking out for them, that’s MY RESPONSIBILITY. (Keep your hands away. I don’t want your icky influence.)
Personal responsibility is a core of conservative beliefs. Your problems ain’t everyone’s problem. Solve them. And there are a TON of groups that will help you get by. Including the government with my tax dollars. And all those churches everywhere – are ALWAYS helpful.
But the notion that I will NOT let you kill your child, and then somehow be expected to provide for both of you for the indefinite future, is stupid. Sorry, I don’t hand out my bank account number to would-be-murderers and their intended victims.
It’s a weak argument to not commit murder. “Well you won’t support my victim! So I HAVE TO KILL THEM!”
As for your ‘right’ to abort your unborn child. It is not Constitutional. Click here to view the Constitution, now point out where your ‘right’ is. Good luck, cause it ain’t there. It is a judicially created right. Roe Vs Wade is a horrible example of a court not saying what the law is, but what it wishes the law to be.
Abortion is one of the greatest human rights atrocity in the history of the world with over 60 MILLION dead children over several decades. (Communism has third place with over 100 million dead, and Islam has first place with over 250 million dead)
Then there is the racial side of abortion.
The black community has been hit exceptionally hard. Almost as many babies are aborted as are born. Since 1973, the black community’s population has declined by 25%. 80% of abortion clinics are located in black communities. 13% of American women are black, but they have 35% of the abortions. Black babies are 3X more likely to be aborted.
It’s the single leading cause of death for blacks, 2x more than AIDS/ Violence/ Heart Disease/ Accidents / CANCER combined.
Talk about an intentional genocide…
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood. She is a well-established eugenicist. Super race sort of lady. Big Democrat hero also.
“We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
– Sanger, in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble in regards to the ‘Negro Project’.
And yet, blacks overwhelming vote Democrat. I don’t get it.
Ultimately, the debate on abortion is pretty simple.
It’s not a ‘conservative war on women’, whoever came up with that line should be slapped. More accurately, it’s a ‘liberal war on the unborn’. (Besides, fathers are required to make babies also. So why don’t you call it a war on PARENTS? Do men not have a say in their child being aborted? Oh yeah, it’s all about getting an emotional response… men are always the bad guys anyways…)
But you are either pro-life or pro-death. There is no middle ground.
Do you support the mass murder of innocents under feeble excuses of minor percentages, or do you accept that it is morally wrong in any case?
Because once you say, “Well – it’s okay if X, then Y, and Z happens… or if the stars align” – you are not only justifying taking a life that is innocent of it’s circumstances, you are supporting a mass murdering often the sake of convenience.
It doesn’t matter if you ‘personally wouldn’t have one’. That’s a meaningless gesture. “Well, I personally wouldn’t toss so-and-so into a gas chamber”… That’s making an excuse for not doing it yourself, while supporting others who are.
Pick a side.
Hint – it doesn’t involve the one that has a tax payer funded organization that cuts babies apart in the womb then sells their body parts for profit, and laugh about it on hidden cameras afterwards.
