You probably are expecting me to quote such commandments in Scripture like, “Thou shalt not murder.” I think 95% of the people on both sides of the abortion argument at least agree PUBLICLY (what some abortionists REALLY think might be another matter) that one should not murder, so I will not do that, because I don’t think it’s necessary. That’s just common sense to most people except those who just openly hate Yah and His children, regardless of their age. Such people who won’t acknowledge that murder is wrong are just pure evil, and don’t care what the Bible has to say about it, let’s face it.
I am also not going to give you just a bunch of scientific theories, facts, or arguements, or my own understanding or other people’s opinions, but I will throw some of that stuff out there just to show how silly it is that we are even arguing when the Bible clears up the matter quite refreshingly. I have recently found a Scripture that I believe settles the abortion argument for those who are genuinely confused about what the Bible says about this issue.
Many of us struggle to understand those who are confused about whether it is immoral or considered murder to end a woman’s pregnancy and destroy the baby in her womb. They are confused about whether this is a sin, whether they could lose their salvation, whether they will face any punishment while living on this Earth or after death. Why are they so confused? Why was I so confused about this issue for so long in my youth? I was not confused on this matter until my late teens, basically, when sexual sin entered the picture. It was black and white until my sins started to make the matter less clear. All of a sudden, scales started growing on my eyes and I started to wonder if there weren’t some circumstances when abortion might be okay, and the lines got blurrier the more sins I accumulated. Then you add the liberal media, a lack of knowledge and boldness in the pulpit, and lack of righteous influence in a girl’s life, and you can start to see why people who claim to believe in the Bible are confused about what it says about abortion.
I was recently listening to a couple of conservative talk show hosts complain about what Alyssa Milano recently said about her supposed beliefs, the Bible, and abortion. I says “supposed” beliefs, because I have not seen any works that are evidence of any belief in the Bible, and she even seemed to admit that her faith opposed her stance on abortion. She is a Hollywood actress who pushes for a woman’s “right” to have an abortion. Here is what she said recently that sparked the conversation on these two radio shows:
“I love God. I believe in God. But I don’t believe my personal beliefs of which we can’t confirm should override scientific facts and what we can confirm.”
She then quoted the Bible:
“If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?” John 3:12
Personally, I believe that scientific facts that we can confirm, are consistent with the Bible and my personal beliefs. Why would Alyssa Milano hold belief in something that she believes science confirms to be wrong? Why would anyone? Science is really just the study of Yah’s creation. While SOME mens’ interpretations of science and Yah’s creation sometimes contradicts what the Bible says, it’s man’s mistaken interpretations that are wrong about Yah’s creation. Science, when not misconstrued by man, confirms the Bible, and confirms abortionists who claim to be enlightened, aren’t very knowledgeable about Science. Science, the faith they CLAIM they have that they CLAIM trumps other religious beliefs one may hold, confirms that living things grow, and non-living things do not grow. Therefore, we do not need to hear a baby’s heartbeat in the womb to confirm that the baby is alive, we only need to know that the baby is growing in the womb to know the baby is a living being. When does the growing process begin? At conception! If there was no living being, there would be no need to kill in order to terminate the pregnancy, and as one bluntly and plainly true bumper sticker I once saw said, “If it ain’t a baby, you ain’t pregnant.” Women know there is a pregnancy at conception, that a baby is growing, or else they would not seek the morning after pill or abortion pills immediately after conception. They don’t need to hear a heartbeat to know they are pregnant. It is their belief and intuition that a baby is growing inside them that propels them to go to the doctor to abort the pregnancy in the first place. No ultrasound or sonogram is needed to confirm this for them or the doctor.
The argument that a woman should have the right to abort her child is often based on their assertion that the baby is part of the woman’s body, and the woman should be able to do what she wants with her own body. This argument is illogical, as well. Science confirms that her unborn baby is a separate being and not part of the woman’s body. Her baby is not one of her body parts. Her baby has his or her own DNA, own genetic identity, own blood type, own gender, own set of two arms and two legs, own heart, own mind, etc…
What frustrated me even more than what Alyssa Milano had to say about hers or someone else’s beliefs, and her misquoting of the Bible in an effort to support her apparent lack of belief in it, is that the two “CONSERVATIVE” talk show hosts both kept asserting that abortion, per se, is a social issue that is not explicitly addressed in the Bible, but that it is implied that it should be understood to be murder if you have any intelligence. This was extremely frustrating to me, because it’s not true, and these 2 talk show hosts are apparently just as confused as the others, because they can’t pinpoint a verse establishing that killing the unborn baby while in the mother’s womb is a murderous sin that calls for the death penalty.
Their lack of knowledge of such a verse reminds me of another one:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My priests. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. Hosea 4:6
Because people are unaware of what the Bible says, because they have rejected the Bible, the law, REAL KNOWLEDGE, our children are being killed, they are dying, they are destroyed.
What’s even more sad, is that Huffpost, a pro-abortion publication, published an article in 2012, that came closer than these 2 conservative talk show hosts to identifying the verse that establishes that killing the unborn baby is murder punishable by death, but the writer of the article either purposefully left out or accidentally missed the key portion of the passage that condemns abortion and those who support it. Here’s what Huffpost said:
“Exodus 21:22-25 describes a case where a pregnant woman jumps into a fight between her husband and another man and suffers injuries that cause her to miscarry. Injuries to the woman prompt the normal penalties for harming another human being: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life. Killing the woman is murder, a capital crime.
The miscarriage is treated differently, however — as property loss, not murder. The assailant must pay a fine to the husband. The law of a life for a life does not apply. The fetus is important, but it’s not human life in the same way the pregnant woman is.”
Oh, no, Exodus 21 states the opposite of what the author of the article claims. It DOES prompt the normal penalties for harming another human being: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life, in regards to the unborn baby. The confusion, I believe, for some people, may have to do with which version of the Bible one is reading. Not that there is anything wrong with using the King James Version, but let’s admit that people in our current times tend to misinterpret the Old English. Here is what Exodus 21:22-25 actually says according to the New King James Version (which doesn’t always get it right either), in more plain modern English:
If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.“But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, “eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, “burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. Exodus 21:22-25
It is saying that if the woman gives birth prematurely to a live child (not miscarries and loses the child), and that the baby recovers and survives, her husband can demand damages (in our modern society, that may be to cover hospital expenses for a baby in the NICU, or any health issues that may have resulted from the early birth preventing the baby from earning a good living or caring for himself without assistance). It goes on to say that if the baby winds up dying after he comes forth from the womb (any harm follows), then life is demanded for life. It’s murder which demands capital punishment.
I’d like to point out that it’s what the husband demands, not the woman who has been harmed, that the Bible says matters. It’s not because the Bible treats women as property, it’s not because Yah doesn’t care about the woman or is insensitive. It’s because the husband is her protector, he is supposed to defend her and see to it that those who harm her don’t do it again, that they pay the consequences so that nobody else feels that it’s okay to harm her or their child. The husband is a picture of our Heavenly Husband and Father who protects us and sees to it that anyone who harms His Bride or their children will pay, and if necessary, life for life. Remember how Pharaoh killed the Hebrew babies being born? Did YHUH let Pharaoh get away with that? Exodus 21 tells us He won’t let people get away with killing the unborn, either.
A husband who would let his child be aborted is a murderer, as much as the doctors and nurses who assisted, as much as the mother who would order her baby’s killing. This nation needs to repent. All offenders, all abortionists, must repent. Roe vs. Wade must be overturned. Murder laws must be enforced. Death penalties for unrepentant murderers must be called for and carried out.
I am concerned that conservatives have become lax on abortion laws and Bible thumping people with anti-abortion verses because they feel maybe it’s not so bad if abortionists kill their own babies who would otherwise probably end up even more wicked than their parents. I can imagine religious conservatives reasoning that the world would be a better place if abortionists don’t reproduce. My argument to that position would be, then maybe we are as evil as abortionists to think we have the right ignore the Bible and allow abortionists to decide who should be able to determine if a baby should live or die. Let’s also not forget the fact that there are people like me who have become knowledgeable and chosen life because of the Bible, regardless of the fact that their parents could care less what the Bible has to say. Why should they not have the same chance to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and knowledge, that you have? Why should the children die for the sins of their parents? What if those abortionists convince your wife or daughter or granddaughter to abort? Don’t think it couldn’t happen to you or yours. It’s amazing how abortionists who don’t really care about what the Bible says have resorted to using the Bible to try to deceive those who actually do care what the Bible says. Read your Bible, and read them in several different versions, for there is safety in a multitude of counselors.
Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy, while Messiah Yahusha comes to give life, and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) Who’s side are you on? Choose life, that you may live…
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. Deuteronomy 30:19
But the children of the murderers he did not execute, according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, in which the LORD commanded, saying, “Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their fathers; but a person shall be put to death for his own sin.” 1 Kings 14:6
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Revelation 21:8
But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. Revelation 22:15
