Abortion is the Human Rights Issue of Our Day

This week, Christians across the world are gathering to launch 40 Days for Life — the largest international pro-life effort in history, mobilizing people around the world to end the injustice of abortion in their local communities. 

The tide is turning on this issue as more Americans become aware that a baby in his mother’s womb is not a blob of tissue, but a human being “fearfully and wonderfully made” in the image of our Creator. A couple years ago, I had the privilege of sharing this truth at Christ Community Church, a multi-campus megachurch in the Chicago suburbs. I truly believe abortion is the human rights issue of our day. And, as believers who know the truth, we must not remain silent, but boldly and compassionately expose this evil and call people to renounce it.

Help me spread the truth about abortion by watching this video and sharing with your friends and family. Then, find a 40-days-for life event near you and get involved!

  1. Abortion is vile, it is truly murder. Killing a child for convenience is disturbing and yet the public have been so manipulated and brainwashed by radical feminism and far left ideologies they bought into the lie that the unborn are merely a glob of tissue.
    Isn’t it also sickening that adoption can cost upwards to 50 grand while abortion is at low low cost?

    As a devout Christian and student of scripture, I have turned to the Bible for God’s Word on abortion. My conclusion is, He’s not only accepting of it, but uses it Himself as a way to make a point. Hosea 13:16 makes it undeniably clear that God kills not on fetuses but infants and pregnant mothers. We Christians have no idea how mysteriously God works, so we need to put aside our judgmental ways and understand that if God terminates pregnancies (and the lives of infants and mothers), then we should let God’s Word be our guide. Praise. Glory. Amen

      Wow, what a small world it is! I too have grappled with this same issue regarding God’s willingness to kill mothers with child, infants and fetuses. This exact same point was discussed at a recent church retreat and it truly changed my views on abortion. There’s even a more vexing truth that I could not avoid, and that is the way the Bible teaches that God often kills people by using other people as the killers. How, back at the time God killed a person, did anyone else know it was God who was behind the killing? Consider this situation back then and then imagine a similar situation today:

      Let’s take the Hosea 13:16 example you cite: Let’s imagine we’re local citizens who witness a group of sword-wielding men suddenly start killing Samarian women, children and fetuses. In our horror, we yell for the men to stop the slaughter; but, one of the men turns to us and states that this is God’s will and the killing is really a good thing, and for us to go away. How would we react? Wouldn’t we claim that such talk is nonsense? Or, would we nicely nod and agree that the killing is all for the good and for the men to carry on doing God’s work?

      Fast forward to today and imagine a person walking into a shopping mall with an automatic weapon. He starts killing people but claims that God has ordered him to do it. How can we, as Christians, disagree with him? It’s no different than what’s often described in The Bible. It’s made me really take stock in how I judge events. Thanks for bringing up the topic.

    To the last two responses:
    I am a bit fuzzy on the details myself and I am but a flawed human but let me try to clear it up for you:

    You are only referring to God’s covenant with the Jews before Jesus. Notice you only quote the events from the OT. The law of God was upheld more directly through his people and prophets. The promise God had made with his people had different terms. Justice carried out by the hands of man was ok under those terms. But…
    Jesus promised a NEW covanent between Himself (God) and his people through his bloody death. He was and is the new Passover lamb! That’s why we no longer also have to preform bloody sacrifices using live animals either which the Jews were bound to during Jesus’ time. Jesus has done it for us and continues to every moment in time! He takes away the sins of the world! Here is a biblical quote from the Old Testament that predicts Jesus’ coming.

    Jeremah 31:
    31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah– 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, F23 says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more”

    Doesn’t mean we don’t have our jobs here to do too, like love God, love our neighbor.

    Sorry for the long post.
    I am surprised such devout Christians could interpret the Bible so differently. If only there was a lineage of theologians that could correct any mistakes in our own interpretations and get us all on the same page…

    I hope I helped. JMJ

    also in response to Rachel whitehead who asked: “He starts killing people but claims that God has ordered him to do it. How can we, as Christians, disagree with him? ”

    God, the OT prophets, Jesus, and the apostles all warn about false prophets.
