God’s Truth Versus The Biggest Abortion Lies | June 6, 2010

Everyone knows the great historical decision that made abortion on demand legal in the United States: Roe v. Wade. What many people do not realize is that the decision in Roe v. Wade was rendered based on blatantly false factual data. One of the main arguments for allowing abortion on demand was that so many women were dying in this country from back alley abortion induced trauma and infection. That information was provided by Dr. Bernard Nathanson of the organization National Abortion Rights Action League, also known as NARAL. Nathanson would later admit that only thirty-six women were known to have died from abortion related injury at the time of his testimony and that the death rate of one in ten thousand from abortion remains at a similar rate now as it did before Roe v. Wade. Because thirty-six women died as a result of their own bad decision combined with medical or personal error, we have now killed millions of unborn children and created a permissiveness in our society that has permeated numerous other areas.

The argument was also made that women were dying because of back alley abortions, but most of the illegal abortions were being performed by medical doctors in their own offices. The balance were spread from nurses, medical students, self induced abortion and finally a few unskilled and untrained abortionists. Nathanson’s own records indicated that at least 91% of the illegal abortions were performed under medical conditions similar to those of today. With that spread of performers the rate of death was one in ten thousand as it is today. That percentage did not change. What changed was the number of abortions being performed. We went from hundreds a year to nearly a million. Nothing changed except the number of murders of unborn children.

Another reason given was that unwanted children were being born and then savagely abused. Therefore, legalizing abortion would decrease the amount of child abuse in our society. The facts are that less than two percent of abortions are done as a result of rape/incest or for the health of the mother. In a University of California study it was determined that 91% of abused children were from expected or planned pregnancies. The other 9% were spread across a group comprised of adopted or foster children, children abused by strangers or non-custodial caregivers and finally a very tiny few who were a result of an unwanted pregnancy. The reality is that reported child abuse incidents increased 500% in the decade after the legalization of abortion by the Supreme Court and has continued to grow annually ever since. Children are not abused because abortion isn’t legal, but rather because we live in an irresponsible and permissive society in which legalized abortion is only one symptom of that irresponsibility. We don’t want to change our immoral behavior, so we try to find ways of erasing the consequences of that behavior in this life.

A fetus is not an appendage of the woman’s body to do with as she see fits. The fetus is a distinctly separate entity with totally separate DNA as part of his/her identity. The fetus is another person entirely, no matter how inconvenient that news may be for those who wish to live their lives at the expense of others, including a child struggling to live.

GOD IS LIFE AND THE GIVER OF LIFE

(John 1:4 NASB) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

(Gen 2:7 NASB) Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

(Job 33:4 NASB) “The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

(Eccl 5:18 NASB) Here is what I have seen to be good and fitting: to eat, to drink and enjoy oneself in all one’s labor in which he toils under the sun during the few years of his life which God has given him; for this is his reward.

(1 Tim 6:13 NASB) I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus

(Gen 30:2,22; Deut 32:18; 1 Sam 1:5; Psalm 71:6)

MAN IS MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE

(Gen 1:26-27 NASB) Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…{27} And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Killing unborn children is nothing less than a satanic act of aggression against God by beings who resent or are revolting against His authority over them! Simple truths can really bite can’t they?

GOD CREATED THAT PERSON IN THE WOMB

Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD answered him and Rebekah his wife conceived.  But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I this way?” So she went to inquire of the LORD.  The LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb; And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger.”
When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
(Genesis 25: 21-23 NASB)

God knows you in the womb! Long before birth, God is aware of the child’s life and
interacts with that child in the womb. The fetus is a person in the eyes of God.

Now the word of the LORD came to me saying,
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
(Jeremiah 1:4-5 NASB)

Each new human being begins at the moment of conception. The first detectable
heartbeat is heard at 18 days. Brainwaves are present and all internal organs are in place
at just 6 weeks. Virtually all of the abortions in America are performed after 8 weeks
gestation. By the time a woman knows for sure she is pregnant, the individual
characteristics of being human are completely detectable by man, but God is aware of
them from the moment of conception. Abortion stops a beating heart almost 100% of the
time. That’s right, I said almost. Sometimes the fetus ends up being delivered alive and
is murdered by the doctor or other staff after the birth. In fact, in the case of late term
abortion this happens every single time. The child is murdered after being born!

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.  I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your 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. (Psalm 139:13-16 NASB)

God weaves us together at the time of conception inside the womb of our mother. Life clearly begins at conception! Abortion is nothing less than killing a life that God has begun.

GOD FORBIDS KILLING YOUR CHILDREN

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
“You shall also say to the sons of Israel: ‘Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel who gives any of his offspring to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones. (Leviticus 20:1-2 NASB)

The Greek word “brephos” is used to mean child when referring to John the Baptist in Elizabeth’s womb leaping for joy (Luke 1:41 and Luke 1:44) The same word is used to describe the child Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes (Luke 2:12). The same word is used to mean child still in the womb and child outside the womb. Therefore killing one is the same as killing the other!

THOSE WHO DID NOTHING WERE ALSO TO BE PUNISHED

‘If the people of the land, however, should ever disregard that man when he gives any of
his offspring to Molech, so as not to put him to death, then I Myself will set My face
against that man and against his family, and I will cut off from among their people both
him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after Molech. (Leviticus 20:4-5 NASB)

Before anyone makes the mistake of thinking that I am one of these espousing aggressive activism against abortion in the streets or outside abortion clinics, let me clearly say that I am not. Much of that aggressiveness is counter productive to say the least. Instead of leading people to the One who can solve their heartache, such activity is chasing them away instead. It drives them into the arms of the tender, “loving” care of the abortion workers. We do need to speak out, but without stepping outside of the peaceful walk of Christ.

Jesus had no problem telling the Pharisees that they were like rotting flesh inside the cemetery. He did not resort to screaming at them or yelling obscenities in their faces. He did not spew hateful comments and curse them to hell. He did not have to. The truth was sufficient. Spoken quietly and directly, the truth is more powerful than any shout, sign or violence of any kind.

We are called to speak and live the Gospel. The Gospel is sufficient to change the hearts and mind of others if we let it. God does not need our help to do that. We cannot change people. God calls. God convicts. God changes. We merely live and represent the Gospel to the world. Our salt and light, our example of living provides the image, God handles the rest.
