All Abortion Is Murder, 4/3/19

There is a lot of debate about whether abortion is murder and if so whether it is always murder. The simple answer is, yes it is always murder. The life of a baby begins at the instant of conception. This is morally and scientifically undeniable. Parents of innocent babies are responsible for their choices that led to the pregnancy most of the time. Sometimes there is rape-caused pregnancy. Sometimes there is a health risk to the mother. It is easy to get distracted by these sad eventualities. But we need to submit to God and take the biblical attitude of valuing life highly, especially the lives of children. Jesus said to show God's value of children:

Luke 17:2
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

We need to agree with this. When we do, we see that no one has the right to take the life of an innocent baby under any circumstances. Most of the time the mother is not a rape victim. But even then the baby's life needs to be respected and valued. And in health-threatening circumstances we need to remember that it is an honor to give one's life for the child. Jesus said:

John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

If one takes the moral high ground and takes on these God-ordained biblical attitudes it is a great honor to lose one's life protecting the baby's life. I do not pretend it is an easy choice. But it is a clear one.

Let us not be guilty of ever devaluing the life of a precious, innocent baby created in God's image. Babies deserve to live. Ending their lives for any reason is murder. All abortion is murder, and Voting for Abortion Is Accessory to Murder.
