Tu también eres una gran cantidad de células.
"Si comes carne, tu también matas."
"El aborto no previene el abuso y la negligencia del bebe."
"But abortion is legal."
Just because it’s legal doesn’t mean that it’s morally right. It used to be legal in our country to put black people up on an auction block and auction them off like cattle. But that didn’t make it right. Likewise, during the days of the Holocaust, it was legal to pull screaming Jewish children away from their mothers and husbands away from their weeping wives, hauling them all off to the concentration camps and gas chambers. To allow the government to define your morality is dangerous. The Bible is the only reliable source for wisdom on moral issues and it says, “thou shall not murder.” It is always wrong to take human life unjustly.
"But the baby is really, really small..."
"It's a parasite. If it's in my body, I can kick it out."
By definition, a parasite is never of the same species. The location of the baby a few inches up in the birth canal makes no difference regarding whether it’s right or wrong to kill. Being in the perceived “wrong location” does not mean that it’s suddenly morally justifiable to poison, vacuum, or dismember another.
"I wanted this baby, but now I found out she has a fatal condition and will die."
"I already have two kids and I don't want another."
Actually, you have 3 children. So, why are you terminating this one and not one of your older children? James 2:9 says that “If you show favoritism, you sin.” Instead of picking favorite children to keep and others to terminate, consider the words of Scripture — that all of your children are “GIFTS from the Lord” and you are blessed to have many of them (Psalm 127:3-5).
"The earth is already overpopulated"
Humanity only continues to exist because each generation of people has produced another generation to replace itself. The replacement rate is one person per person. Since women are the only ones who can have children, replacing every person on earth means each woman needs to have two children: one to replace her and the other to replace the man. In developed countries, the replacement birth rate is 2.1 children per women. Even that number assumes that every woman has children and that there are no wars, famine, or disease. In the real world, these kinds of disasters happen all the time and, sadly, not all children reach adulthood – especially in poor countries whose replacement rate is up to 3.3 children per woman. Since not every woman has children, some women need to have more children to balance the birth rate with those having none or only one child. Many of the world’s nations are only barely replacing themselves, while the growing majority of countries have birth rates below replacement – some as low as 1.2 babies per woman. ** Source: overpopulationisamyth.com
"What are you doing about all these unwanted children being born into this world?"
"I don't know who the father is."
''There's something wrong with my baby, and I don't want him to suffer a cruel life."
Dios dice que Él aborrece las manos que derraman la sangre del inocente. Dios nos ha juzgado ya.
"Yo soy Pro-Life, con excepión en casos de violación"
Ambos son actos violentos en contra no solo de la madre, sino también del feto. Cuando una mujer es embarazada por asalto sexual, el violador debe ser perseguido con el máximo impacto de la ley. Si embargo, a la vez, permitir que el bebe pague por el delito del violador es injusto. Al permitir que el bebe muera crea a su vez, dos asesinos. La madre violada sabe mejor que nadie la violencia a manos de otro, por lo cual, ella debería tener compasión por su bebe y no permitir que sufra al igual que ella sufrió. Las mujeres que optan por la vida de su bebe, después de que fueran asaltadas sexualmente, a diferencia de la opinión global o general, han descubierto que al haber optado por esa decisión, ha sido una bendición, que las ha ayudado a superar la memoría de su asalto.
"No es un bebe. Es un feto."
"Abortion is fine as long as the baby is young enough to not feel pain."
Someone who is shot in the head likely doesn’t feel significant pain. Does that mean that shooting them in the head would be “fine” or “morally acceptable”? Would it be “morally acceptable” to dismember a living person against his will as long as he is under general anesthesia?
"I'm really early in my pregnancy, so aborting is okay."
"But what if a mother can't afford a child at that time?"
When we are going through difficult times financially, we rip up credit cards; however, we don’t rip up our children. We get financial counseling, we budget, we apply for new jobs or better jobs, but the last thing on earth we should be thinking of as a financial move is to take one of our children to a hit man to save a bit of money. Would we do that to a 4 year old?
"It's just not the right time to be a mother."
"God knows my heart."
"My local abortion clinic also does so much good!"
"I don't think it's murder as long as the heart isn't beating yet."
Life begins at conception, but you should also know that the heart is beating around the time the mother is taking her pregnancy test. In Jeremiah 1:5, God declares: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” God knows us even before our father’s sperm penetrated our mother’s egg. Let’s err on the side of kindness. Let’s honor and dignify a person starting at fertilization.
"If abortion isn't legal, then women will go back to aborting babies in back alleys with coat hangers."
"It's not like the mothers asked to be pregnant."
“Flee sexual immorality” (I Cor. 6:18)
"I'm personally against abortion, but I'm just here at the clinic to support her and drive her home."
Just like you wouldn’t just ‘support’ someone raping another; likewise, you shouldn’t be supporting this mother abusing her child to death. And as you wouldn’t wait outside to drive the getaway car for a person heading in to rob a bank, likewise, you shouldn’t be waiting to drive the mother home post-kill. Have nothing to do with the shedding of innocent blood.
"Mi cuerpo, mi decisión!"
"El aborto debe mantenerse legal en un caso de una posible complcación que pondría en riesgo la vida de la madre."
No se debería de plantear esta pregunta al revés? En mis 36 años de Cirugía Pediátrica, nunca he confrontado la necesidad de abortar al bebe para salvar la vida de la madre. El doctor Alan Guttmacher reconocido por más de cincuenta años, dijo: Hoy día, es posible para cualquier paciente, llevar a termino un embarazo, a menos que la madre sufra de una grave como cáncer o leucemia, si eso fuera, sería imposible salvar la vida del bebe y la madre. Si el reconocido doctor de Planned Parenthood hizo esa declaración, hace 5 décadas, con mayor certeza, hoy podemos salvar la vida del paciente con los avances en la actualidad.
"Why don't you go help the homeless or foster kids in need?"
Just like it would be unfair to criticize the American Heart Association for not also fighting diabetes; likewise, speaking up in defense of babies scheduled for slaughter is our particular ministry focus right now. We care for all children who are neglected, abused, or suffering; however, our time and resources are, of course, limited. Once abortion is abolished, many Christian anti-abortion ministries will be freed up to focus the bulk of their attention to other causes that are also important to us all.
"I'm just sending my baby to heaven. I'll be with her again someday."
You believe that you’re sending your baby to Heaven (something that is not promised in the Scriptures); however, you yourself will not be there. Revelation 21:8 says that all murderers will find their part in the lake of fire. And we sure don’t want that to happen to you.
"But the baby is dependent on the life of the mother."
"I just don't want it."
There are many good folks who do want your baby, and you can go to www.nightlight.org to hand-pick a loving, forever family to adopt your little one. Adoptions can be “closed” or “open.” A closed adoption means you can choose to never see your baby again. An open adoption means you can still get cards, letters, picture updates, or maybe a phone call or visit, depending on the terms of your adoption. Adoption is usually free for the birth mother.
Romans 2:4-5 says, “Do you presume on the riches of God’s kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to REPENTANCE? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.” And we sure don’t want that to happen to you.
"But in the Old Testament, there are recorded instances of God causing the death of infants or small children."
God has the authority to give and take life.
"Abortion must be kept legal because of eptopic pregnancies."
Dr. Patrick Johnston, says, “The standard of care for ectopic pregnancies is “expectant management,” or watchful waiting, since half of the embryos who implant in their mother’s fallopian tubes perish on their own without medical intervention and are reabsorbed. Nevertheless, in my experience, doctors are often stricter than this standard of care, aggressively intervening in ectopic pregnancies to kill the baby when, in reality, it is not necessary to kill the baby to save the mother’s life. Furthermore, dozens of babies have survived ectopic implantation. Doubtless, one of the reasons there aren’t more cases of ectopic pregnancies surviving is because of the medical community’s haste to kill. I suspect that haste is motivated less by the desire to save the mother’s life and more to protect the physician. Let us be confident in our commitment to God’s Word as the foundation for morality and justice, and not be seduced into straying from this sure foundation by medical scenarios awash in deceit. ‘Thou shalt not murder’ can withstand the scrutiny of the skeptics.”
