The Sanctity of the Unborn Baby

abortionThere are 233 countries and protectorates in the world. Of these countries, 210 have a population less than 60 million people. This is significant, because since 1973, more than 60 million babies have been aborted in the United States.

Let’s put it another way: More American babies have been murdered in the past 43 years than people who inhabit 210 countries of the world!

Many people do not understand that when abortion was legalized in the US in January of 1973, it became legal to get an abortion until the moment of birth.

Those with even a passing knowledge of the Bible are aware of what God says about the sanctity of human life in the womb (Exodus 21:22-25; Job 10:8-12; 31:15; Psalm 22:10; 127:3-5; 139:13-16; Isaiah 44:2; 49:1, 5; Jeremiah 1:4-5; Luke 1:15, 41; Galatians 1:15). Yet, there is a full disconnect in the minds of Americans who claim to be Christians.

Many people rightly decry the wicked and evil actions of Hitler and Stalin for their murder of Jews, homosexuals, and the handicapped, yet voted for candidates willing to do much worse by preying and profiting off the most helpless in society, the unborn. They had no difficulty voting for candidates who advance abortion rights and the illegal sale of the dismembered baby body parts for profit.

The only conclusion is that these voters are either woefully ignorant of what God says about an unborn baby or are wilfully rebellious toward Him.

Yes, God will judge us on how we vote; how we vote is an extension of our belief system. The protection of life created originally in God’s image must be an utmost priority of the Christian voter.

The solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His, ” and “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2 Timothy 2:19).

In a four weeks, people around the world will celebrate the birth of a Babe in Bethlehem. As Christians we must be careful to reflect our faith and our Father’s heart in all we do – including how we vote.
