Why I am Pro-Life

Updated on March 19, 2013

Abortion There are many views and opinions on abortion. There is not an easy answer for many. I am not that way. I have an opinion on abortion and it is an easy answer for me. I do not believe in abortion, there is a soul attached to that child from the moment of conception. It is not just a thing. It is a whole person; an abortion would be considered murder of a person, not just the disposal of a fetus. . My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:15-16, p. 1057) I understand there are many reasons for considering abortion. In the case of rape, the thought of having that child would be very hard. But you have to remember the child did not do anything wrong. It would be difficult to do but the right thing would be to have the child. If you could not accept the baby there are thousands of couples who can not have children but want them. By giving your baby up for adoption you would be blessing someone else by your tragedy. It might even help you to deal with the situation if you consider it a blessing for someone else. In our society today everything is disposable; it is a disgrace that the life of a child is considered disposable also. Science says that you will soon be able to “order” the baby of your dreams; if it is not the way you want it you can just get rid of it. That mentality will be the down fall of society. Science is wonderful, and very useful, but just because we can does not mean we should. To use abortion as an option for “ordering” a baby is deplorable. However, that is what it is becoming. We have taken out the fact that we are talking about a person. Not a fetus or zygote or any other “thing”. It is not a thing, it is a child; a real life child, with a soul and loved by God. The new human zygote has a genetic composition that is absolutely unique to itself, different from any other human that has ever existed, including that of its mother (thus disproving the claim that what is involved in abortion is merely "a woman and her body").(Ruse ESQ, “n.d.”) There are many horrors in the world that result in the life of a child being created. It is hard to see past the horror and see the child as God does; a blessing and worthy to live. There is no shortage of people wanting to adopt. No matter what the circumstance; that child has the right to live. To make a blessing from a tragedy is something God is good at and if the circumstances were viewed that way it might make the healing process a little easier. To focus on the positive whenever possible is a strong way of healing. There is a point of view out there today that abortion is okay if it is not a convenient time to have a baby. This thinking is so wrong on so many levels I do not know where to begin. First, we must take responsibility for our actions. If it is not convenient to have a child abstinence should be your first thought. If it is not and you find yourself in the position of having to choose the life or death of your child, consider it from your child’s point of view. It is not a something; it is a “someone”. We have taken out the human aspect of this. It is an aspect that should be vital in every decision we make. When we are deciding on abortion, we have to remember what we are really talking about; the life of a child, who has been blessed by God. We as a society are so far off of where we should be. Our thinking has become so “me” based we think we have the right to choose life or death. To be honest, it is not our decision to make. If you do not want children but do something to create a child, the life of that child is not your decision. To keep the child or give the child up for adoption is your decision, not the life of the child. That decision is God’s and God’s alone. Abraham Lincoln in the 19th century said: "No one has the right to do what is wrong." Just because we can do something, like abortion, does not mean we should do something. We have lost the moral issue. We have lost the right or wrong issue. We have lost the human aspect to life. We are not our own keeper. We do not belong to ourselves. We are God’s children. Our body, mind, and soul are His. We do not have the right to decide life or death. We as a society have forgotten that. I do not believe in abortion. It is wrong in any situation. With that being said, I know there are many evils in the world. I know there are situations where abortion is logical thing to do as far as society is concerned. But we have to be more concerned with God’s will. The easy thing to do abort and just forget it ever happened. But that is not really true. You do not forget. Taking the life of the child is not forgotten. By having the child, the decision you have to make is whether to keep him or her or bless a couple who is looking to adopt. Blessing from tragedy has always been God’s way of dealing with situations. There are decisions that are ours to make and there are decisions that are “not” ours to make. That is what we have forgotten. We have to remember to keep our eyes on Jesus. Then we can make the decision based on truth and not on our own way of thinking. References (). Psalms.

      I wish more people could understand the value of human life. Glad to see someone else putting their thoughts out there on this. Voting up.
