Roe Vs Wade/Abortion

Forty years.

That's how long its been since the famous court case of Roe vs Wade.

Since then over 50 million babies have been killed. That's more than one million a year. (It takes 12 days to have one million seconds.... that's a large number).

I have a little message for varying groups of people out there:

Those who think abortion is wrong:

When they were deciding whether to make abortion legal, the argument that was used, was women's health. Not their rights, but their health. What if the mother's life was in jeopardy?

That is a legitimate argument. However, we know that health issues are not the reason for most abortions. So, as enticing as some moral arguments are, don't fall for them. Think it through and make the right choice about future decisions.

Those who have had an abortion: 

The guilt you feel (or the guilt you have denied) is normal. You cannot bring your baby back, but you can receive peace and forgiveness.

God formed you when you were in your mother's womb and He loves you.

He loves you so much that He was willing to take the punishment for your sins (you're not the only sinner, everyone has sinned). The Lord Jesus Christ died and rose from the dead for you. So that you may live eternally.

All you have to do is believe in faith that God did this for you. Receive His free gift of eternal life.

Those who are thinking about having an abortion:

Don't do it.

Maybe you're scared or lonely. Maybe you've been raped. Maybe you're afraid of being abused.

If you really cannot take care of the baby, give her up for adoption. There are plenty of people who would love to care for your child.

If you are in an abusive relationship and fear your safety due to pregnancy, please get help. Here's a phone number: 1-800-799-7233. There is no need to lose a child because of an abuser.
