Article - Today's Holocaust

Every day, thousands of babies are dying. These are not normal deaths because they are done by doctors. Not many people are aware, or excuse it by saying that they're not really people. This is today's holocaust, and as Christians it's our duty to stop it. Abortion is just as evil in God's eyes as the holocaust. Sitting around and doing nothing to save millions of babies' lives, is worse than refusing to save the life of one full-fledged adult if you have the power to do so, because each baby is a special creation of God and is fearfully and wonderfully made, as Psalm 139:14 says. Here are some ways you can help: Pray; Vote pro-life; Volunteer at a pregnancy counseling center, and if you know anyone considering abortion, let them know of the consequences and point them in the direction of a pregnancy counseling center where they will receive help and support spiritually and physically.
Let me ask you this question: if it's okay to kill unborn babies, but considered "murder" to take the life of infants after they're born, WHEN does a baby become a human being?? Before you put this down, I want you to understand what abortion really is. If you are pro-choice and think abortion is okay, than this is what you are agreeing with.
D&C method - The abortionist puts a long, loop-shaped knife into the womb. He cuts the baby into pieces and scrapes them into a container for disposal.
The suction method - A hollow tube is attached to a suction apparatus inserted into the womb. The suction tears the baby into pieces which are suctioned out and thrown away.
The hysterectomy method - This is done during the last three months of pregnancy. The mother's abdomen and uterus are surgically opened and the baby is removed and allowed to die slowly.
The saline method - This method can only be used after the sixteenth week. A strong salt solution is injected through the abdominal wall into the amniotic sac where the baby lies. As the baby swallows the solution, he is poisoned, and dies. The mother delivers the dead baby about a day later.
So, if you are pro-choice, you are saying that it's okay to throw away human life.
Forcing women not to have an abortion is not the answer, and it is not showing the love of Jesus. We need to lovingly share with them that abortion is not the answer, and will just bring them more hurt and pain. What they really need is salvation.
Thank God that your mother chose life!
Priscilla here again. I'd like to add something to that. If you're already pro-life, I'd like to challenge your thinking a step further. Think of children as a blessing, and let God control your family size. I can't tell you how many times, I've heard pro-life, Christian people talking down about children. Oh, they want children! But not too many. Comments like . . . "I could never have that many kids." "How do they survive?" "I'd like to wait at least a few years after marriage before having kids." "I'm not going to have kids that close together!"
The Bible is very clear on the fact that children are a BLESSING! Why wouldn't you want God's blessing in your life? Why would you say, "Hey God, I want you to bless me, but I'm too selfish to want that blessing now, can you wait a few years?" Do you trust God? Then trust God to give you the right amount of children! He's not going to give you more than you can handle.
I'm so grieved when I see christian's using birth control. First off, birth control pills do not always stop you from getting pregnant! Sometimes, they allow a baby to be conceived, but then cause a miscarriage. In a sense, birth control pills are a form of abortion. And, even if they weren't, why would you have your doctor help you control your family size? Do you not want God's blessing? Do you not trust God to give you the right amount of children? Do you think God wants to ruin your life?
Don't look at mom's with lots of kids and complain about how full their hands are, and how hard they must have it, and how you could never do that. Instead, look at them from a Biblical perspective. They are blessed! Sure, their hands are full, but so are their hearts! God gives grace, and I REALLY respect people who are willing to trust God with their family size.
If you've never studied children from a Biblical perspective, I challenge you to do that. What does the Bible say about children and family size? Are you living in accordance with what the Bible says?
