Give Me Life or Give Me Death
This is a post I did on facebook a while back when a girl I knew had some questions on abortion. She was not pregnant but she was talking to some friends who were pro-choice and she did not know what to say to them. Any feedback is more then welcome and I tried to reach this through a biblical point and a non-biblical point because I am a Christian but I know that not everyone is so I want to reach everyone with this message. (A special thanks to my friend who let me use her child to make a poster for Pro-Life for my graphic design class and to another friend who helped me decide to make my blogs into more then photography. I am still going to update photos but I also want to make my blog more then that and start talking about things that really matter to me so I hope you enjoy =D)
Give Me Life or Give Me Death
Who gets to decide?
God tells is in Exodus 20:13 that “you shall not murder.”
So, why is it that innocents are being murdered every day? Let's look at some facts. In 2005 (the most recent year for which there is reliable data), approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the U.S., down from an estimated 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2005 more than 45 million legal abortions have occurred in the U.S. (AGI). (taken from Abort73.com)
Why are these babies being aborted? Most common answers are: I can't afford a child, I don't have time for a child, I have to much going on, I am a single mom, or I am having problems with my husband and a child would only make things worse.
How selfish of a world do we live in when we would rather kill a child then to deal with them!?! Abortion has turned into a quick fix. People don't care if they get pregnant because they can abort the child. When in fact they should be more careful and when they do get pregnant they need to grow up and take responsibility!
There are always alternatives to abortion. If you do not want a child, you can always put the child up for adoption.
For those who think that a fetus is not a living being, look at an ultra sound. You can see the child growing, moving, LIVING!!! If there is not a living being in a pregnant woman's body, she would not have to be so careful when she is pregnant!
So what about women who have been raped? Should they have to birth that child? Yes! It is not the child's fault they are the outcome of rape. Why are they being punished by death for something they did not do!?! Only about 1% of abortions are done on rape victims. When a woman is attacked her body kicks into panic mode and starts to shut down making it very hard to get pregnant during an attack. I know of a lady who is the outcome of rape. Her mother did not want her, but choose to give birth to her and put her up for adoption so that she could live! This woman has a wonderful life and goes around to schools talking about drugs and sex and what they can do to your life.
Should a women who has a medical condition that might kill her if she has the child still give birth? Let me answer that with a question. Who has the right to choose who lives or who dies, the mother or the child? I know that I do not have the right to choose.
Why should I care and waste my time on unborn children? Well if you are a Christian, the Bible tells us in Psalm 82: 3-4 that we should defend the weak. Can you think of anything weaker then an unborn child? Even if you do not really have a religious stand point the reason you should care and take a stand against this horrible crime because they cannot defend themselves! If we do not speak for those without a voice who will?
So next time you think that it is the woman's choice if she has a baby or not. Think again and think about the child that is being killed, that can't fight for itself and will never get the chance to speak up. All because the woman who conceived that child was too selfish to put up with 9 months of discomfort to have a child to put up for adoption.
