Some abortions happen because a baby would interfere with education
or career. Other pre-born are killed because a baby would be too
expensive. Some are denied the right to life because they are the
wrong gender, and some because they may have defective genes. And
some babies are not wanted by the pregnant woman for lack of partner
Given that background, would you recommend any one or all of the
following preborn children be terminated by abortion?
1. A preacher and his wife are very poor. They already have 14
children, and now she finds herself pregnant with a 15th.
Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, should
this child be aborted?
2. The father is sick with a virus. The mother has tuberculosis.
They have 4 children. The 1st is blind, the 2nd
died, the 3rd is deaf, and the 4th has
tuberculosis. The mother is pregnant again. Given the extreme
situation, would you recommend abortion?
3. A white man raped a 13 year old black girl, and she got pregnant.
Should she get an abortion?
4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She’s not married. Her fiancé is not
the father of the baby, and he’s very upset. Would you consider
Seems like many people today would be taking that way out. But if
abortion had been recommended in these four cases, denying the right
to life would have been a tragic choice.
In the first case, you have just killed John Wesley, one of the
great evangelists in the 19th century.
In the second case, you have killed Beethoven.
The third death and denial of life would have been that of Ethel
Waters, the wonderful black gospel singer.
If you said abortion was the answer in the fourth case, you have
just advocated the murder of Jesus Christ.
This Friday marks the 48th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Since January 22, 1973, more than 62 million pre-born babies have
been aborted. That figure is more than the combined populations of
New York and California.
God have mercy on this nation.
