What about GOD . . .
If God is the ďsupreme creator," then we must
only be procreators
(meaning we only partially have a hand in the creation process). In
turn, I would deduce that children must be a gift from god. The baby
may be our flesh and blood but the spirit is not ours to take! Do
you really think that if God is making these spiritual bodies He
wants their physical bodies destroyed? Most likely not. If God is
sole creator, then logically He couldnít be for abortion.
Who wants to answer to the Lord and take responsibility
day for the numbers that are aborted? I donít think I could, I think
Heíd be mad. I have to pray for His mercy enough without having to
worry about the guilt of an abortion on my heart.
Why is a pregnancy seen as a choice for abortion
and not a baby? We
live in a ďME, MeĒ society. This simply means we look out for
ourselves and no one else. Could you honestly say you wouldnít have
cared if you were aborted? Could you honestly say you wouldnít
protest to your personal abortion by your mother? Never a first kiss
or first date, to never meet the best friends you hold dear to your
heart today, never to hear the awesome music at a concert or go to a
party at college and drink for the first time. Never get to love
another or feel the warmth of the sun. Never to stay up late with
friends to watch movies, eat pizza, and just talk about anything!
How can you deny your baby to itís right to live life and experience
all if this!!!!!
What about . . .
The pain and guilt of an abortion?
Why is there pain and guilt? Guilt would imply you have done
something wrong. Guilt is a natural feeling, and then naturally it
would imply you have made a bad decision. Guilt can be so
tremendously overwhelming that it can physically run the body down
(e.g. depression). Whatís unnatural is the suction put on the
uterus during abortion. If itís okay to do, then why are there such
high risks of horrible side effects? Scar tissue rupturing, excessive
bleeding, the loss of the ability to have children Ė all imply that
this practice is unnatural and not what the body is made to undergo. True, not
all women are affected in this way, but that canít change the facts
previously stated that abortions are killing other women.
When is the last time you saw under the obituaries a woman
who died from abortion? Probably never. Why? Women who die from
abortions are kept secret because it looks bad. Couldnít that
inherently mean it is bad? Undercover agents have to look into the
files and such to find this hidden information.
Where can I get help . . . Iím not ready?!
First of all, God is there for you! If He
gives you the baby, then
how could He not help provide for it? Sure we donít always see how
or when He will, but thatís how God is- we canít always understand
His plan. What about Godís plan? Isnít His plan just as important
as ours? Ė Probably more important than ours? We all know the results
of having sex. You donít always get pregnant from sex though so that
must mean God has some sort of plan for you and your baby. Others
argue that we should plan pregnancy and thatís partly why abortion
should be legal. But arenít most pregnancies unplanned by us but
planned by God?! How can you say a baby is unwanted, maybe
inconvenient but not unwanted Ėwho wants to be told thatís what they
are- UNWANTED? Since when should pregnancy be a matter of
convenience? -Take life as it is handed out to you and accept graces
and gifts from the Lord.
There is the option of adoption- how great the number is of loving
parents on waiting lists for a baby. There are social services to
help unwed, teen, and/or poor mothers. Look at all the support you
The all-loving Lord will look with mercy on you
if you feel you are truly sorry for your abortion. But, you must
know the healing process is long and sorrowful. The overwhelming
thought of what youíve done is hard to come to terms with and itís
even hard to forgive yourself. One day you will feel liberated and
at peace Ė ask God to help you on your way.
