Hello everyone! Today I am addressing a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Pro-Life. I know this encompasses several things, but I am focusing on the right to life for the unborn. They can't speak for themselves. So I am going to today.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
King James Bible
That’s kinda a given. I mean, in order for someone to have freedom, they have to be alive, right? But what constitutes as Life? Some say it’s when a baby takes it’s first breath. Others say it’s when it’s heart begins to beat. Still others say it’s the moment it begins to form. This is the stance taken by most Pro-Lifers. But what if Life begins…before even that?
The verse above states that God had written down all the members (or parts) of David’s body in a book, before they were even formed. From this, we find that Life, as God sees it, began from the beginning. He knew who everyone was and would be before they were even thought of by man. He knew what you would look like, what you would enjoy doing, what kinds of foods you would like…back before He even created Adam and Eve. Let that sink in for a minute!
Our Nation stands on the fundamental, “That all men are created equal” (originally this was referring to governments, but now means to us, no race is better than another; in abilities and character, nobody is equal to another, God made us all unique! He truly is Awesome!) and “that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable (cannot be taken away or denied) Rights, that among these (but not only these) are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Since Life was determined from the beginning, then abortion has no leg to stand on. By tolerating this practice in our Nation, we deny human, unalienable rights to our future citizens! We deny them every Right endowed to them by their Creator! Will it stop here? If we can steal Life from the unborn, what is to stop someone from determining whether someone else has a right to live or not? (Think Adolf Hitler.)
The Pro-Life movement is more important than people realize. It is the heart-cry of humanity, justice, decency and Christianity. Please, speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves! If we don’t, who will speak for us when we no longer can?
…Among these rights are LIFE…
