An unforgetable decision: Abortion

Many people will argue that the decision to have a baby is up to the parents… and they are right!   The decision is theirs.   But once they decide to have an intimate relationship, the decision has been made and if a child is conceived, parents become stewards of their child. They must be prepared to accept the consequences of their decisions.  Unfortunately, many people do not take appropriate responsibility for their actions.    

A lot of people who are against abortion will still support special cases when the mother has been raped or when her life is endangered by the pregnancy.  But an abortion is still ending the life of a human being. 

In the case of rape, the baby can be given up for adoption after birth, or can still be raised by the mother with the support of her family and friends.

24 »El Dios que hizo el mundo y todas las cosas que en él hay, siendo Señor del cielo y de la tierra, no habita en templos hechos por manos humanaso 25 ni es honrado por manos de hombres, como si necesitara de algo, pues él es quien da a todos vida, aliento y todas las cosas.p

In the case of the mother’s life being in danger, we must realize that God allows things to happen for a purpose, and we should not cut off His plan in progress by taking matters into our own hands.   A great deal of prayer and a close relationship with God can ensure wise decision making for such matters.
We look forward to the innocent victims of abortion living again in a future resurrection. Yet this does not minimize the grievous wrong of taking their lives today—or of the fact that so much of the world has declared this horrible act to be legal.
