Should I abort the baby when the doctor says it’s going to kill me? Wait— it? First of all, the foetus or baby is not an ‘it’… whether its four weeks old or eight months old. Why? Because the physical body isn’t all that there is. We all existed before we were born, because God said so! He knew us before we were conceived and had a plan for us!
Okay, so why then is the world such a terrible place if God planned good for everyone and doesn’t want anyone to go the wrong way?
Easy: Man has the WILL. Man was given the CHOICE. God will always give you the choice— wrong or right? Left or right? Up or down? He will provide you with tips to make the right choice. But ultimately, he won’t decide for you!
Hold on a second, I will return to the abortion bit… Jeroboam was destined to rule Israel after Solomon’s heart was turned away from God in the latter days, and the kingdom was foreseen to leave David’s house for a number of generations. What did Jeroboam do when he learned of God’s plan for him? He rejected it, and chose his own “reasonable” plan. The rest is history— he was dubbed ‘the man who made Israel sin’ and God restored the line of Christ back to the House of David.
Back to the abortion… You are going to do it because it will kill YOU if you don’t? Where is your FAITH? I know I am VERY controversial with this article, but well, I have the chance to express myself! There are countless stories of how ladies were declared barren. Their wombs were destroyed, and they were NEVER going to give birth. Does that sound familiar? Sarah, Abraham’s wife was one of those people who were physically condemned to not give birth. Even she doubted, but what happened?
Abortion is deemed evil when a promiscuous girl gets pregnant and decides to abort, or when an unmarried lady chooses to sleep around and gets pregnant. But when a married woman decides to abort a baby on ‘medical’ grounds, it suddenly becomes a necessary evil! When did the wrong thing become partially wrong, or conditional?
Personally, I believe that children are gifts from God, born or unborn. My mother or your mother were probably married when they conceived us. Does that mean they would have been justified to get rid of us if they had thought of us as threats to their own lives? Think about it. Where would you have been, reading this article?
I do believe we all have varying degrees of faith, and not everyone will have the courage or faith to put their life on the line for an unborn child. But this is my thought: I have enjoyed some life on this earth, and I have enjoyed God’s gifts. If I will die in that hospital room, then I will put my house in order, and then see myself as the channel through which another life will get the chance to enjoy God’s gift of life in this present world. Whether you think it’s a bluff or not, I think I would feel much better with this thought than asking myself what that baby could become… if God himself is watching over us, and recognizes you as His child, and does not require you to leave this world, He will intervene when you think it’s impossible for him to do so, irrespective of our choices—those are the rare times when he awards FAITH.
Example, do you know what it would mean for the sun to stop moving because a man asked God to make it stop? That means the earth actually stopped moving! God did that for a man who was fighting for him on the battlefield! How awesome is that?
I can’t convince you to make a choice; I can only say what I think… I think whether or not it’s considered safe or unsafe, bad or good… abortion isn’t the right thing to do. A life is asking for a chance to live… Will you make it happen?
