This is taken from the “Evidence Bible” by Ray Comfort…
How would you respond in these situations?
1. A preacher and his wife are very, very poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she’s pregnant with the 15th. They’re living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty, and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending she get an abortion?
(The world is FAR from being over populated by the way, have you ever driven through Kansas? Plenty of space to live there!)
2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. Of their four children, the first is blind, the second has died, the third is deaf, the fourth has TB. She finds she’s pregnant again. Given this extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?
3. A white man raped a 13-year old black girl and she’s now pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?
4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She’s not married. Her fiance is not the father of the baby, and her fiance is upset. Would you recommend abortion?
In the first case, you would have killed John Wesley, on of the great evangelists in the 19th century.
In the second case, you would have killed Beethoven.
In the third case, you would have killed Ethel Walters, the great black gospel singer.
If you said yes to the fourth case, you would have declared the murder of Jesus Christ.
God is the author of life, and He has given every single individual supreme value. Each life- whether inside or outside the womb- should therefore be valued by us. God knows the plans He has for each individual and has written in His book all the days ordained for us before one of them came to be.
When we presume to know better than God who should be given life, we are putting ourselves in the place of God and are guilty of idolatry.
-Ray Comfort, Evidence Bible
And now a quote from Tim Wildom in the AFA Journal…
We know that, biologically, life begins at conception; otherwise there would be no reason to have an abortion in the first place. You do not have to invade the woman’s body with instruments to kill something that does not exist.
Abortion is a gruesome, savage, unnatural procedure. Even pro-choice advocates do not want to hear it described in detail because it is more than most people can stomach.
Abortion is the shedding of innocent blood, and 99% of the time it is done for convenience or birth control purposes. A woman gets pregnant, she doesn’t want a baby, so she goes to the clinic to have it killed. Fifty million babies, so far. That is abortion in America. God, help us.
