The support of abortion truly nullifies the cries for “justice” in other areas. Consider the outcries against “oppression” by so many who then turn and think nothing of the real oppression and cruelty of the unborn (it has been shown that these little ones do, in fact, feel pain).
Black Lives Matter cry out against the injustices towards the black community, yet many give full support of abortion—of which multitudes of these little ones are black.
Feminists cry out against the mistreatment of women, all the while boast of their “rights” to abort children (of whom many are girls).
The gay community cries out against mistreatment of those of their “orientation,” and declaring their “rights,” while trampling on the value of the unborn and their right to life.
Many feel such abhorrence of the death penalty of hardened criminals who care nothing about the lives of others, yet who have no regard whatsoever for the lives of the innocent ones who’ve done no wrong to anyone.
Even nature itself shows the wrongness of abortion when one sees the gentleness and care beasts have for their offspring. “Civilized” humanity betrays itself when it behaves in ways even lower than beasts.
The support of abortion simply makes their outcries against injustice seem arbitrary at best, if not meaningless at worst.
Furthermore, it’s sheer defiance, a shaking one’s fist at God, to support abortion while also professing to be a follower of Christ. Abortion and authentic Christianity are antithetical.
God is a God of life, abortion is a promotion of death.
Both male and female are made in the image of God, and we don’t have a “right” to destroy it for the sake of convenience (see Genesis 1:27; 9:6).
God is close and intimately involved to the little ones, “knitting” them together, and knows them (see Psalm 139:13-16).
When the Israelites were sacrificing their babies to false gods, God condemned the practice and declared such a practice never even entered His mind (Jeremiah 7:31).
And when Jesus shows His deep concern for children by not forbidding them to come to Him because the kingdom is for the likes of them (see Matthew 19:14), and gives a strong warning to those who would harm and lead them into sin, stating it would be better for a millstone to be tied around such perpetrators necks and thrown into the sea (Matthew 18:6), it goes against sound reasoning to think He would condone the barbaric practice of abortion.
I’ll dare say it, if you profess to be a follower of Christ and support abortion, you do not truly know God’s character and heart. Furthermore, you sin by harboring such wickedness in your heart when you come to the Lord’s table. For how can you truly worship the Lord of Life while condoning the practice of death of the helpless and innocent? Your arguments and rhetoric will never stand in His presence.
