THE GODLY must raise their voices for those who do not have a voice and protect lives of unborn children.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)
Is not formation of a baby in a mother’s womb a wonder of the world? One cannot but stand in awe and admire at how God creates a human being in the womb. However, do all in this world understand this wonder and value the right of an unborn child to live? It is sad, but a fact, that many children become victims of abortion with consent of their own mothers. Of course, there would be people who would say that an unborn child or a not completely formed fetus is not a human being yet. However, it is a lie of the devil, by which they want to justify their inhuman act.
The Word of God says: “Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?” (Job 31:15)
The mother’s womb, which is a birthplace of life, becomes a grave because of abortion. A mother, whose highest calling is to protect and nourish her child, brings death to them. Isn’t it cruel to see couples who dream of having children for years, and at the same time women and mothers, who kill their unborn children without a feeling of remorse.
“Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.” (Proverbs 24:11)
So, what do we do or what shall be done to deliver the children who are drawn toward death? Some are persuaded that we must secure passage of a law, which forbids abortion. Yes, having such a law would have been a serious step forward, which would have shown the attitude of the Government toward the problem of abortions; however, the most important thing is renewing the minds of people. It is necessary to fight for recognition of the value of a human life, to use all opportunities to shed light to the fact that abortion is murder and is sin. A woman and a man have moral right to decide to end pregnancy only if the fetus threatens the mother’s life; otherwise, abortion violates the commandment, which says, “Do not Kill”.
“Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die.” (Proverbs 31:8)
