Industrialized Murder: Prenatal Final Solution

Abortion…it is a practice that should have every Christian screaming and running for the door if someone said they had to do it. If a Christian willingly agrees to this practice they should know it is unbiblical. They should be examining their heart and their heads to assure they are walking a Christian walk if they pursue this course of action. I believe the more liberal of our persuasion prefer the term pro-choice. I personally see it as pro-murder...but enough of my views.

For the sake of brevity and clarity I will save the topic of pregnancy terminations due to survival threat to the mother (as in ectopic pregnancy) and/or rape issues for another time. I am not avoiding it. That would be intellectual cowardice and an easy way out. I will not do this. These two variables (rape & survival) in particular are thorny at best when it comes to the choice to have an abortion. Unfortunately, these variables are often used to re-frame the argument of killing an unborn child. In these situations the victims of rape often become a victim twice. First from the rapist and then by the politicized pro-choice movement that use them as exceptions to the rule but they are not the norm. As is obvious, everyone is free to choose their own actions, right or wrong. People can make righteous decisions and unrighteous ones. I agree, it is a matter of choice: The choice to murder or not to murder. I cannot make people do things. I can inform them though. I will say that, in my opinion, the only possible acceptable situation for termination is if BOTH lives are in jeopardy and even this is a tentative situation-based and positional statement. In any case this should be exceptionally rare.

I am primarily focusing on abortion as birth control method and abortion as irresponsibility of the parties involved (i.e.: people that want to play, but they don't want to pay). The type of irresponsible behavior that ends up leading to wholesale slaughter. Unfortunately, adult businesses/enterprises like Planned Parenthood usually prey on those in society that are socially or financially disenfranchised or worse, they prey on the young. Young girls that have a much more difficult time making mature decisions in the absence of a parent (where many will need to make this decision as parents are not informed most times). These young women will then need to live with this traumatic and life-changing decision the rest of their lives.

The Bible is clear of the condition of the unborn in the womb and murder in general. I will throw in a few early Christian views sources for good measure as many were based in the Bible anyway. Let’s review shall we?

Biblical Sources:

Human life begins in the womb.

Psalms 139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."

God considers us to be human before we are born. Before God gave Moses this law, He gave Noah animals for food and said, "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood". At the same time, God gave the law and penalty for murder (shedding of "man's blood").Therefore, God considers blood to be the basis for life (blood is also a metonymy for life) and the shedding of human blood which results in death to be murder. A heart of the human fetus begins to form 18 days after conception. There is a detectable heart beat at 21-24 days after conception. Therefore blood pumps in the veins of a fetus and blood flow would allow for in this situation that lead to a death...would be murder. End of discussion.

The most damning evidence that says and unborn can be viewed as a human in person/persona is in the birth narrative of Luke of our Lord Jesus Christ. In context these women knew this was the Messiah based on Elizabeth’s response, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!” We then hear…

Luke 1:41 ~“And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit”

Luke 1:44 ~“For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.”

In other words, infants in the womb are reactive. They respond to stimuli. This is the sign of a cognizant being (human). What’s more, this wasn’t just any human being it was the Son of God. If he is indeed considered a person in the womb, who are we to doubt? Can we even imagine if someone have attempted to abort Jesus Christ. How could we possibly say that anything in the womb is not human when we can see a narrative right in the Gospels about our Lord Jesus Christ In Utero being referred to as a person. If he…then logic follows that everyone else would be human in the same situation. The thought of killing Jesus in the womb is unthinkable but then again…this is essentially what Herod tried to the same thing outside the womb and it is what the religious leaders like the Scribes and the Pharisees succeeded in doing at Jesus’ Crucifixion.

The progressive barbarians will have us believe things are much better now that we have the killing covered by our insurance and by taxpayers through organizations like Planned Parenthood (thank you Margaret Sanger). If anything we have regressed as we have now industrialized and automated the processes to make the killing more expedient, efficient and clean. Frankly, we are just as barbaric in our butchery as we have always been since time immemorial. To me, any practice that leaves one dead and the other injured is not health’s either an attack or war.
