My Thoughts on Abortion

My Thoughts on Abortion


Why is abortion so acceptable to most people??

My purpose in writing is not to quote a bunch of statistics about abortion, because anyone can look them up on the internet. I will reference only two details I saw on the internet;

1. Abortion is one of the most common medical procedures performed in the U.S, each year.

2. There is at least one website, maybe more, that says “after effects of abortion can be overwhelming, find support here”.

If, as many say,”it’s only a fetus, not a baby”, why would there be emotional problems after having an abortion? If it’s not a baby to start with, how does it turn into a baby?? If the doctor says you are pregnant, what are you pregnant with?  If it’s not a baby, why do you want an abortion? What are you having the abortion doctor kill, if it’s not a baby?

 Why do so many accept the mantra “a woman’s right to choose”? Why does anyone have a right to commit murder? In any other case of murder, the murderer goes to prison when caught.

Can you imagine killing the small baby you are holding in your arms? Is it okay to kill your one year old child, or a child of any age? Just because you cannot see the unborn child, doesn’t make it any less a child. If that were so, why do expectant parents so eagerly view the sonogram of their “fetus”?

Sad to say. there are people who SAY they are Christians, who also say abortion is okay. Many of these same  people also believe that all religions are equal, and that if you are a good person God will surely send you to Heaven when you die. This is a lie of the devil! Many, many people call themselves Christians just because they go to church, or because they are not Buddhists, Hindus, etc. To actually be a Christian is to be a Follower of Christ Jesus. Anyone who is a TRUE CHRISTIAN will not say abortion is okay.

God says in The Protestant Christian Bible

[Revelation 21:8 NIV] 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

The “fiery lake of burning sulfur” is hell.

You can choose to believe that hell is not real, just as you can stifle your conscience by believing that a fetus is not a baby. But you will suffer the consequences of those choices.

OR, you can choose  LIFE, for your unborn baby, if you are pregnant, and you can choose life, eternal life for yourself. God is a merciful God, and He loves all People. Even if you have had an abortion, God will forgive you, if you repent. This does not mean that all you have to do is say “I’m sorry”.

[Matthew 4:17 NLT] 17 From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

To repent is to ask God for forgiveness for your sins, and turn away from your old life. It is to completely yield your heart and will to Him, obeying the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, and evangelists in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.

Just as Satan is luring you to hell, God is extending His Grace and Mercy to YOU, reaching out with His arms of LOVE, waiting for you to turn to Him. God’s Grace will enable you to understand the Gospel Message, that Jesus ALONE is the Savior of ALL who will turn to Him in sincere repentance. JESUS ALONE IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN, THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN FORGIVE SINS. (No earthly man has the power to forgive sins!)  DO NOT think that you have done anything so bad that God will not forgive you. No matter what sins you have committed, there is only ONE that will cause you to go to hell: that is rejecting JESUS as your personal Savior.  When you sincerely repent, there will be an inward transformation, accomplished by the Holy Spirit of God. (God is a Triune Being, consisting of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all equal in power, known as the Trinity). You will not have to TRY to change, in your own strength, to please God, but when you are born  again, you become a new person.
