“You knit me in my mother’s womb . . . nor was my frame unknown to you when I was made in secret” (Psalm 139:13,15)
In today’s society with the application of situation ethics, some areas of our reasoning have grayed from either black or white. I would like you to read the following and then tell me could abortion be the right answer under these circumstances. Would you consider abortion in the following 4 situations???
1. There’s a preacher and wife who 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?
2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have 4 children. 1st is blind, 2nd is dead, 3rd is deaf, 4th has TB. She finds she’s pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?
3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending 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 recommending abortion?
If you said, “Yes” to the first case, you have just killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists in the 19th century.
If you said “Yes” to the second case, you have killed Beethoven.
If you said “Yes” to the third case, you have killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer.
If you said “Yes” to the fourth case, you have declared the murder of Jesus Christ. (Matthew1:18-23).
Suppose a doctor asked God why he hasn’t sent any person into the world who has the knowledge to cure AIDS, help world peace, or cure Cancer, He
may reply, “I did, but you aborted them”.
