What is Behind Abortion-on-demand Legislation?

What is Behind Abortion-on-demand Legislation?

…And why every Christian should care.

In honor of the 49th annual March for Life rally in Washington, D.C. last Friday—and the first since overturning the historical Roe v. Wade case which legalized abortion nationwide—I want to take a minute to recap. In this article we’ll review…

  1. How the Biblical worldview leaves us no other option than to support life.

  2. Why the billion-dollar abortion industry preys on vulnerable young women.

  3. How pregnancy care centers around the country offer help, support, and hope to struggling young parents and families.

I recognize that this is a very sensitive topic for many people for a plethora of reasons. Please know that there is always grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ for our mistakes if we ask. This is certainly true for women who may have had abortions in their past.

To be clear, a frightened young woman who finds herself, for whatever reason, facing a difficult decision is NOT the problem—the powerful politicians and institutions who prey on her are the problem.

Why this should matter to you.

Throughout our history in America, people of all religions and faiths have condemned abortion. There are a lot of social issues in America today that the Bible doesn’t have any direct answers to, but the case for protecting innocent life isn’t one of them.

For example,

  • Genesis 1 proclaims that God made man in his image.

  • Exodus 20 records the Sixth Commandment, “You must not murder”.

  • Proverbs 6 lists “hands that shed innocent blood” as detestable to God, and

  • Psalm 139 declares boldly and beautifully how life begins at conception.

Severe warnings are given against those who would harm children in both the Old and New Testaments. Luke 17:2, for example, states: “It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble”.
