Last night a friend and I had the opportunity to go to Waldorf, Maryland and sit in on the Charles County Right to Life meeting. We got some ideas as to how we can make the Greater Baltimore Right to Life a successful group.
One of the things that we plan to do is have conference calls to give people things to say when they are at the booth, and they get some tough questions asked.
Just recently I was told that I was wrong that we vote for a President, who is pro-life this election. I was told that it’s the women’s choice, and the government needs to stay out of it. I responded back to this person with an outstanding response. I said, In 1966, Mississippi legalized abortions only in cases of Rape/Incest. I said the state government authorized it, and that is the government. I also brought up the Supreme Court in 1973 when abortion became legalized in the United States. I said the Supreme Court is the government.
The reasons why abortion should be illegal.
The First and Foremost Reason abortion is murder, and The Bible says, Though shalt not kill. It is part of the ten commandments. Life is precious we are created in the image of God. We are so special to God that he knew us before we were even formed in the womb. Just recently I read a devotional on fathersloveletter.com, and I would like to share it
4 The word of the LORD came to me, saying,
5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;
When Jeremiah was called to be a prophet to Israel, God declared that even before he was conceived, he was known by God and set apart for His divine purposes. The road that Jeremiah would walk in his ministry life would not be an easy one, for he suffered much abuse at the hands of his fellow Israelites. I wonder if he ever reflected on these words when he was going through his darkest times? When he was alone in that cold, damp prison cell, did he ever go back to the beginning of his ministry and meditate on God’s words to him? I believe the revelation that he was known by God, and set apart for His purposes, gave Jeremiah the strength to continue to walk out his destiny, even in the darkest of times.
Knowing that it was God who knew us, and formed us, and called us into life, is the bedrock of our existence. When everything else around us is not making sense, this truth can give us the grounding that we desperately need to go on. We are all looking for a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. Many people have not received this affirmation from their parents, but it was not their parents who knew them before they were conceived, but God. It was God who formed each one of us in our mother’s womb and called us to life. It was God who set us apart for His divine purposes and plans.
Before an architect constructs a building, he meticulously puts every detail on paper, every component needed to make his dream into a reality. The idea is first conceived in his mind, then is transferred on paper, and then when everything is just perfect, he starts the process of building his creation. In my own limited understanding of God’s creation process, this is how I imagine it to be. He first conceived us in His mind, and with great thoughts of love, He began to chart every detail of our DNA in preparation for the time when he would form us in our mother’s womb. What a wonderful thought, to know that the God of the universe knew us intimately and set us apart for His purposes even before we were conceived!
The second reason abortion should be illegal is because in the Declaration of Independence says that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We all have the right to life. We are given that right the moment we are conceived.
The Third reason abortion should be illegal is because many people say that the government should not be involved. The government is the reason abortion is legal. When we have abortion illegal only then will the government be out of it.
