Abortion Stops Beating Hearts


What does it mean for a person to be "Pro-choice"? To be "pro-choice" means you support the legal right to kill pre-born human beings. That's it. Being Pro-life means you support the right of all human beings to be born as God intended them to be. From natural conception to natural death. Now some "pro-choice" people have put themselves in differing categories. There are the pro-choicers who believe in absolutely no restrictions to abortions. That is a girl any age can abort her child at any point during the pregnancy as it's "her body to do with as she pleases" and no one can stop her and her parents have no rights to know their own child has undergone surgery or taken pills to induce an abortion. I believe this is a small part of the pro-choice movement. Other's say abortion should be legal if the parents cannot afford the child or the timing interferes with their careers and lifestyles. Another group of pro-choicers believe that it's only OK to kill the preborn if they are deformed or disabled in any way, not perfect.
Sound like eugenics? What is eugenics? According to the American Heritage Dictionary, it is "The study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding." Sound a bit like Adolph Hitler? Planned Parenthood's cofounder Margaret Sanger (who took over for Mary Ware Dennett who founded The National Birth Control League) dreamed of a pure human race in America. Actually she did more than just dream of a pure human race, she worked hard to see that those she considered without value (namely African Americans, those born to poor parents and those with disabilities) would not be born. Sanger's plan was two fold, she wanted those she decreed "undesirable" to be aborted and to prevent any possibility of further such humans, she wanted the parents to be made sterile.
Sanger and Hitler had much in common with their eugenic theology, though Sanger drew the line at gassing the already born "unfit" as she called them.
In 1926, Sanger said: "It now remains for the U.S. government to set a sensible example to the world by offering a bonus or yearly pension to all obviously unfit parents who allow themselves to be sterilized by harmless and scientific means. In this way the moron and the diseased would have no posterity to inherit their unhappy condition. The number of the feeble-minded would decrease and a heavy burden would be lifted from the shoulders of the fit."
As some point out, it's not legally "murder" by our current laws, but by the definition of 'murder: to take an innocent life' it is murder. And of course to God it's murder. He knows us in the womb from the moment of our conception and if a "mother" pays someone to kill children in the womb God isn't fooled into believing that is anything but murder with a price tag. That's what abortion is. Paying someone to kill the child in the womb to make sure that human being never knows life outside the womb. Are my words harsh? Yes. I know it, but abortion is a cold hard calculated industry. Let's call it what it is and not sugar coat it so it's easier for us to live with. Abortion stops a beating heart. Period.
Even Margaret Sanger admitted that pre-born human's were alive and that abortion was murdering them. She never denied it, and though she supported birth control first and foremost, she also advocated it was a woman's right to do what she wanted with her own body-including killing another human being. In 1916 Sanger wrote: "no one can doubt that there are times when an abortion is justifiable,". She also said: "To each group we explained what contraception was; that abortion was the wrong way—no matter how early it was performed it was taking life; that contraception was the better way, the safer way—it took a little time, a little trouble, but was well worth while in the long run, because life had not yet begun."
Today's Pro-choicers don't like to admit that abortion is "taking life" as Ms. Sanger admits. Instead they have come up with new propaganda so the squeamish won't feel so bad about supporting the Pro-choice movement. They have decided it's not a true human being until it's "viable". Well, just what is it then before it becomes "viable"? If it's not a baby, then women are not really pregnant! When a woman is pregnant there is no doubt she is pregnant WITH A CHILD. Hence the term "with child" for pregnancy. At the moment of conception, that child IS a human being. It's in the earliest form, but still a human being. The American Heritage Stedman's Dictionary describes "viable" as: "Capable of living, developing, or germinating under favorable conditions." Well, almost all pregnancies fall under that category, regardless of what trimester the pregnancy is in. Human beings need different things at different stages in their lives and development. To decide that one stage of a human life is an acceptable stage to kill a human being is wrong. Whether it be abortion for the pre-born or euthanasia for the elderly and disabled. It's just wrong and even Sanger publicly admitted it was wrong. People who are pro-choice are supporting the legal right to wrongly take an innocent human life. That's murder, whether legalized by our current laws or not, it's still murder.
What choice does God tell us to make? Let's see what God says in scripture:“... 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
