THE RIGHT TO LIFE IS INALIENABLE…


Since the Supreme Court overturned or returned Roe v. Wade to the states there has been an unending attempt to spread misinformation, disinformation, paranoia, and hate.  There are members of our government encouraging violence against pro-life groups and pro-life clinics.  Those same people insist that any attack on a pro-abortion or Planned Parenthood Clinic should be treated as the most heinous of crimes.  Therefore, it is not about life and protecting against criminal activity but protecting an ideology and agenda.

I have heard some preachers insist that the Bible does not address abortion and that it is justifiable within the scope of a woman’s choice and right to abort an unwanted fetus.  They do not call it a baby unless it is convenient but rather the impersonal term fetus.  Before I refer to some pertinent Bible references to life let me offer some of the writings of the Early Church Fathers on the subject.  THEY ARE WRONG!

The Didache – “The second commandment of the teaching: You shall not murder.  You shall not commit adultery.  You shall not seduce boys.  You shall not commit fornication.  You shall not steal.  You shall not practice magic.  You shall not use potions.  You shall not procure [an] abortion, nor destroy a newborn child.”  [Didache 2:1-2 {A.D. 70}

The Letter to Barnabas – “The way of light, then, is as follows. If anyone desires to travel to the appointed place, he must be zealous in his works. The knowledge, therefore, which is given to us for the purpose of walking in this way, is the following…Thou shalt not slay the child by procuring abortion; nor, again, shalt thou destroy it after it is born” (Letter of Barnabas 19 [A.D. 74]).

Tertullian – “In our case, a murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the fetus in the womb, while as yet the human being derives blood from the other parts of the body for its sustenance. To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born or destroy one that is coming to birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in its seed” (Apology 9:8 [A.D. 197]).

Tertullian – “The law of Moses, indeed, punishes with due penalties the man who shall cause abortion [Ex. 21:22–24]” (ibid., 37).

The Apostolic Constitutions – “Thou shalt not use magic. Thou shalt not use witchcraft; for he says, ‘You shall not suffer a witch to live’ [Ex. 22:18]. Thou shall not slay thy child by causing abortion, nor kill that which is begotten…[I]f it be slain, [it] shall be avenged, as being unjustly destroyed” (Apostolic Constitutions 7:3 [A.D. 400]).

I do not want to make this strictly a religious discussion but if we go to Jeremiah 1:5 we read the powerful words about the beginning of life – “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”  If life does not begin until after the baby is birthed, then God’s statement has no weight.  Then in Psalm 139:16, we read, “Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, everyone one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”  That would mean that life began at a minimum of conception but in truth long before in the heart of God. 

We have many other passages that refer to life and there is a myriad of verses regarding the sanctity of life.  God’s Word makes it clear that He values every life and expects mankind to do the same.  He gives conditions in which a life can be forfeited and the penalty for taking a life wrongfully.  Therefore, I cannot support abortion based on my belief in God’s Word and I dare not make my value of life less than what the Bible declares.

One of the most ridiculous analogies attempted was by the New York Times equating abortion to a miscarriage.  They produced an article that asked, “Why do we talk about miscarriage different from abortion?”  The ridiculousness of that question deserves no mention, but it must be addressed because it is an attempt to take polar opposites and make them the same.  But that is the modus operandi of the followers of toxic liberalism who bow at the altar of human convenience.

Do we equate brain aneurysms to capital murder?  No? Based on their argument, why not?  Both result in death which is the only valid comparison.  Do we make consensual sex the same as rape?  No? Why not?  Both result in intercourse, right?  How about being paid a wage for doing a job and being held captive in a state of slavery?  NO? Both result in a job being performed, so using their analogy or comparison they would be the same, right?  Anyone with a temperature above room temperature should know better.

Our societal mores have declined and disintegrated to the place that in the United Kingdom more babies were born to unwed mothers for the first time in recorded history.  The decline in moral values and the relegating of the family to the back burner have elevated the view of convenience.  The lack of willingness to commit to marriage and family opens the door to abandonment and failure to perform our societal and biblical mandate to train, nurture, and provide for our children. 

The lack of civility and understanding of what constitutes a life and the life in the womb is producing growing violence against those who support life.  The followers of the pro-choice movement are taking to social media, targeting the Justices of the Supreme Court, physicians who take a pro-life stance, and anyone who opposes their view.  As was the case after Trump’s election in 2016, the media, the Leftists in government, and the activists insist those acts of violence are justified. 

I find it impossible to extricate eugenics from abortion because abortion is the taking of a human life.  Abortion is targeting the most defenseless among us.  That baby in the womb is proven by science to be a living organism (human being) and in the very early stages of development feels pain, has body parts, moves, and reacts to stimuli.  Yet, the insistence is that it is a woman’s right to end that life for whatever reason.  That is appalling to me. 

My question is and will always be if the life in the womb is not valuable and we deem it morally acceptable to end that life before it can even begin living what is next?  There have been diabolical forces seeking to eradicate our world of the weak, elderly, sick, and those who are deemed defective.  When abortion becomes so caviler and with extreme callousness, no thought is given to the right of the baby in the womb, then the next steps become much easier.

Those proponents of this ideology and agenda include Bill Gates who has advocated for a long time for the reduction of the world’s population by as much as one-third.  Today, we are cognizant that there is an ongoing effort to produce laboratory synthetic meat for human consumption.  The use of vaccines has been advanced by Mr. Gates as a method of achieving the goal of population reduction.  Where will it end? Who will be targeted?  Will it be a medical decision, a political decision, or a tyrannical decision?  Remember the efforts of Hitler to produce a super-race and eliminate the Jews from existence!

As a believer in the Inalienable Right to Life, the Bible, and a moral conviction that murder is wrong I cannot support any political party, candidate, or agenda that supports abortion.  If you find me offensive for my view, that is your choice.  I will defend your right to hold your view but ask that you also defend mine.  We, the world, are on the precipice of destruction through the new religion of personal convenience. 

I pray that God will forgive me, and our nation for our failure to do the right thing.  If there were no other issues on the ballot that would be enough for me to reject the Leftist.  I will vote in November with a clear conscience and reject those who advance this ideological agenda of devaluing life (abortion). 

God bless you and God bless America!
