CONVENIENCE. It is just not convenient to have the baby.

Christians who vote liberal (Democrat)are pro-death, they have the blood of 40 million babies on their hands

at just a few weeks a baby can feel. a few more and a baby has a heartbeat. at four months the baby can be felt moving in the mother's womb. if that's not life then i don't know what is. who are we to decide who lives and who dies? abortion does not cover up a "mistake" it makes you the mother of a dead baby.

Luke 1:41
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the BABY leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Clearly the Bible is telling us the the child in the womb is alive and does react, can feel etc..Elizabeth was 5 months pregnant with John the Baptist.
Note: it did not say fetus, fleshy blob, or non-life or not a human being. I beg you to hear what is being said here in the Bible about babies in the womb!
And the truth shall set you free!

The Lord did this:Psalm 139 13For You formed my inward parts;You wove me in my mother's womb. 4I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;My frame was not hidden from You,When I was made in secret,And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;16Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me,When as yet there was not one of them. Knowing this, it would not be wise to have an abortion at all ever for no reason.
---Lisa on 7/3/07


Over 20 years ago I had 3 abortions. My excuses were drugs/alcohol. After being saved I learned what I had done. I took the lives of 3 of God's children. The Bible says thou shalt not kill. Plain and simple. Got my pic in the paper new holding an "abortion kills" sign. They should be completely outlawed.

MikeM, pray for them. And support those agencies that seek to help women to choose life for their unborn children. I also try to avoid supporting agencies dedicated to their destruction (I do not support these directly, but I am finding it hard to avoid other companies that are supporting them indirectly)

If abortion is counted as murder,then what shouild be done with those who perform/have them?
---MikeM on 6/9/07




Read this passage in Gen.9:6,:Whoever sheds the blood of man,by man shall his blood be shed". Well I believe every unborn baby has a heart that beats;Who wouldn't call it "Living"!I call it a precious "Life" and God cares too!
---rosem4839 on 6/9/07


Notlaw, where did you read that? I would like to verify your statement because I have not heard that before. I'm not saying that you are wrong I've just never heard it.
---Jared on 6/6/07


notlaw99- I find your comments impossible to accept as the Bible says we are who we are even unformed in our mother's womb. See Isaiah 49.1,Jeremiah 1:5,Psalm 139 14-16.

If it was to save the mother's life then that may be different but otherwise it is murder most foul.

To murder anyone is evil but to murder a totally defenceless child in what should be the safest place is indeed the vilest of acts.
---Warwick on 6/6/07


In reality the Bible does not any where prohibit abortion. Jewish theology at the time of Christ recognized the need for abortion and mandated abortion to the extent of cutting it out piece by piece if necessary if the life of the mother was in danger. Jewish theology recognized the difference between potential life and actual life. Actual life begins when the baby can breath air and not until then. Until then it is only a clinical medical issue between a woman and her physician.
---notlaw99 on 6/6/07


As Christians we are to let the mind of Christ over shadow our own minds and will, we who should know the love of God need to search our heart if not the scriptures, and base the life of the child on that. The love part comes from NOT damming the baby to death and a terrible one too, without applying love which is the last commandment. Life first and self next. How do you then say I have the Love of God and abort?

Death by famine IS death of natural cause(allbeit the word NATURE:no stabbing,shooting,beating) .I am not into controlling population. You mentioned population control . Abortion is an abominable method. Murder is murder thus the parallel of child abuse murders. They are simply older. Just food for thought. Remember that Jesus had a special heart for children. I am not judging individuals. I appose the Law.

Rebecca D, I do not condemn the women seeking abortions. I do condemn those who profit from it. As for the victims of rape, this affects a lot of women, and most will feel violated and traumatized by it regardless of whether they have an abortion or not. But God is firm, thou shalt not kill.

There are many children of rape who have gone on to live productive lives in Christ, some having grown up with their victim mothers, and some with adoptive parents. How can we condemn an innocent child?

Do we know the mind of any victim?, I can imagine one being violated and then having to live with the trauma of giving birth not having a choice of who her fathers child could have been and feeling blighted.

God knows every situation and it's not up to us to judge. I judge those that abort for fashion, because I am human but how much is God not like man and able to search the heart. He said he'll have mercy on whom he will and that is when and if he chose the case to judge whatever case to save.
---Carla5754 on 5/22/07


If a woman were raped, she needs to go to the Police, then to the hospital and have a DNC done. Just in case she were to be pregnant. Because at that point she wouldn't know if she would be or not. Believe me, I know all about being raped, and thought I was pregnant at age 13 years old.
---Rebecca_D on 5/21/07


Rebecca_D, there is a group called "Silent No More" who is made up of former victims of rape and/or incest who are upset because they were strongly encouraged to have abortions after being victimized. Many such victims have claimed that to have an abortion after being raped was like being raped a second time. Often such abortion cases are to ease the consciences of family or friends who are uncomfortable with the idea of a woman carrying the child of a rapist.

Rebecca_D P2: The number one reason for procurring an abortion for a victim of incest is to hide the crime. In effect, to allow the abuser to continue engaging in his crime without detection. I have read that some abortion clinics have even been chastised for refusing to report incest cases when performing such abortions.

In both rape and incest, the unborn child is also an innocent victim and the knowledge of this will affect the woman for the rest of her life if she aborts.

Jody; Since when is dieing of hunger a "natural cause"? This is how you think God is controlling "over population"? What do you mean by "people like you"? Where do you read in my post that I support any of this?
---1st_cliff on 5/21/07


Cliff , There is a difference between babies dieing of natural causes and murder and/or abuse of babies . I suppose you endorse child abuse as well ? Kids are also beaten, burned ,stabbed ,or die in closets. Right? Are you God controling over population ? Is that implied? Christians will account to God for abortion and child abuse in this country because of people like you.
---jody on 5/20/07


Is abortion murder? Jesus says if you hate a person, you have murdered that person, in your heart.

When a woman kills their unborn, in her heart she kills the person she feels that unborn would become in her life. She has imposed her own perception of who that person would be.

And we, in our hearts, also can ABORT our kids by imposing on them our own perception of them, then treating them like ones who they are not.

Ones say they are not ready to have a child; they may claim they will be rejected by friends and family if they keep their unborn. This tells me they do not have real love with the ones they depend on.

But a woman can have real love with her unborn > they can LEARN and discover real love t-o-g-e-t-h-e-r > "'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29)
---Bill_bila5659 on 5/20/07


Rebecca. Just wondering about Ex.21:22-23. That doesn't seem to speak about abortion, it speaks about physically hurting a woman and her having a miscarriage because of it.
I don't think you will find any direct verses about abortions but it would fall under the category of thou shalt not kill.
I can understand how a woman wouldn't want the offspring of a rape but would 2 wrongs make the first one right and is it the unborn childs fault that he/she should pay with it's life?
---john on 5/20/07


Lanet. All life is sacred? I read those verses but didn't find that it said that. You mean to say all human life don't you? Otherwise you wouldn't be allowed to swat a mosquito.
---john on 5/19/07


Rape. How many women could carry a child 9 months knowing that the raper is the father? Not many. The only thing I found on abortion in the bible is, Ex 21:22-23, as judgement Ho 9:14. If a woman has an abortion, we can't judge her because we have not walked in her shoes.

Lanet; Very interesting stats,when you compare it to the fact that 10 times that number 30,000 children die each day of malnutrition and hunger related diseases! Who would you say is responsable for these deaths? 3 babes are born every second.
---1st_cliff on 5/19/07


I recommend visiting a site called "Priests for Life" to see real-life, uncensored photos of murdered (aborted) babies. Warning - they are extremely upsetting! After see these photos all of the "reasons" for abortion seem more like excuses. What ever happened to being an "expectant" mother, rather than a "reluctant" one?
---Anthony on 5/19/07


Lanet,that was great! Women get abortions when it is inconvient to birth a child. Maybe they wish to finish school or advance in a career. Some are not married or are financially unable to support a child. Some have a family and simply do not want another child. Some are too young as in teen pregnancies. Women completely separate themselves from beliefs and feelings when chosing abortion. The heart is cold at least temporaraly
