I really got mad at a pro-death article tonight, so I'm venting and hoping that somehow this blog serves to save at least one life. This is the greatest apologetic I've ever heard against abortion...and I don't know who to attribute it to, whoever wrote it probably won't mind if you and I use it:
Women have rights. You will rarely find someone to disagree with you, and people that support abortion often flee to the rights of women. These are the very same rights as men. As Mr. Jefferson put it so well, the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of property and happiness.
But the question is, when do those rights come to fruition? I believe it is when a woman becomes a woman.
I believe a woman becomes a woman and earns all of the same rights as a man at the age of 18.
No, I'm kidding. Actually it's younger, 13.
You probably still don't agree; I am still being coy.
She has the same rights as a man the moment she becomes a woman.
When is that? Conception; two X chromosomes get together and she earns the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of property and happiness.
If you want to deprive this precious little girl of any of her rights, well then thats between you and God.
When I heard that the first time, I was amazed at how clear and persuasive this argument is. People that really hate God will still be able to find a way around it, but it is aimed at the tenderhearted.
But I can't leave it at that. If you have had an abortion, God will forgive you, Jesus has washed our entire past, and God the Comforter will grant you peace. In almost all occasions, sanctification is the greatest news, but not necessarily so in this case, if you'll read 2 Samuel 12:16-24, we have hope that this wonderful baby will be awaiting your arrival in Heaven. As David put it, "I shall go to him," and you will be reunited, but even more beautiful, Jesus called the little ones, "angels that always see the face of my Father in Heaven." (Matt 18:10)
Thank you for reading.
