In reference to abortion
My response to a sister in Christ—-who asked me about this,
In reference to your question about abortion—and more deeply about “does life begin with conception or birth?” Thank you for your interest and your question. This is a very controversial issue, and certainly should not be–at least for a true believer, a follower of Christ!
And, let me begin and end this with my own confession——–that I have been a “willing participant” in this heinous sin, this abomination against God———abortion! First, in my youth, I was “living in sin” with a woman to whom I was not married——-and when she became pregnant——–I told her we needed to “get rid of her pregnancy” because I was not ready to “father another child” (as I had my son from my previous marriage, and his mother’s pregnancy is what I based my decision on back then to “get married” as “the right thing to do”——-and that marriage failed, because “neither of us” honored God, or His blessing on our lives the son He gave us,)———-so certainly, in the delusion of my selfish sin, I did not want to begin another “marriage because of pregnancy!”
So, in my case, sin lead to more sin—-first “living in sin, unmarried, and second, the abortion when she became pregnant!! And in this sin, I “lead the way” to murder an unborn child, by abortion! And back then, in the 60’s since abortion was illegal, it was a horrendous experience, in which we traveled to Washington DC, and she went to a horrible place, and we paid the money, and the lady inserted a “coat hanger” into her womb, and told us to drive around until she “aborted” and then to come back to her house. So, we eventually went to see a movie——-The Pink Panther Returns——and sat there while that horrible event was progressing! When finally it penetrated, and she started hemorrhaging, we went back to that horrible house, and they “did something” to stop the bleeding, saying the abortion was completed, and we then traveled back to New Jersey, where we were living. But, the bleeding increased, and finally we took her to a doctor for help, and he had to do a surgical procedure called a D&C then to stop the bleeding (she almost died) and get her on the path to healing. She said he told her it was twins!!
