Whether a baby is inside the womb or outside of it, it’s still a baby. Certain people may try to lead you to believe otherwise and say a fetus isn’t a child.
They may say they cannot feel pain.
They may say it doesn’t matter what happens to the baby because the mother has a choice and it is in her body.
But I’ll share the truth with you: abortion is not only a choice, it’s murder.
To kill an innocent baby, whether on the inside or out, is still taking someone’s life.
Even the king of an immoral and pagan culture knew it was murder.
“The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives—the first, whose name was Shiphrah, and the second, whose name was Puah— ‘When you help the Hebrew women give birth, observe them as they deliver. If the child is a son, kill him, but if it’s a daughter, she may live.’” (Exodus 1:15-16)
Take the life of a baby.
The Pharaoh was trying to control the Hebrew people from growing and fighting back. If they killed all the boys, they killed all of the ones who would revolt and also the Hebrews could cease to exist if the women were left without men to marry.
But even Pharaoh declared the truth for what it was – murder.
Today, if you are considering abortion, I beg you to stop for a moment and consider adoption. There are many loving families who are desperate for a child. No matter your circumstances, this will be a decision you will have to live with for the rest of your life.
God loves you. That baby, no matter what happened, is no mistake. It is an innocent child who can feel, think, hear, see, and know it’s mother’s voice already.
“For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made. Your works are wondrous, and I know this very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)
