    The word Abortion in this country is considered almost as slang.  People frown on the word.  “Terminate Pregnancy” sounds much better.  Yet, both mean the murdering of an unborn, sinless, gift of God known as a child.  Yet, in most cases the child is called a fetus and again we have a lesser meaning to some.  Planned Parenthood is supposed to mean to prepare for parenting a child, then why do they also carry out the murdering of children, known as “Termination of Pregnancy”?  I wonder if in the counseling sessions of such practices, if they tell the soon to be murderer of her child, the four ways that they do this procedure?  One way is to give the baby an acid bath.  There is a way that they suck the baby into pieces.  Then let us not forget the partial birth abortion when in minutes the baby would be born.  Lastly, we have the tapping into the brain of the baby and literally sucking the brains from the skull.  While this is all morbid to us that love children, it is done daily by thousands of mothers.  In our society if a person is involved in an accident and is charged with manslaughter, or even murder, if there was a pregnant women the court system then recognizes this “fetus” as a human being.  The person at fault would be charged on two counts.

    We know that our society rules this as a mother’s choice since it is her body, and this is not a living human.  Yet, the Lord sees the unborn as human beings, even before conception.  (Jeremiah 1:5) “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”  I am thankful that Jeremiah was born, and his mother did not decide that it was the right time.  The fact is that today abortion is used as a form of birth control.  We can even decide that if the baby is not what we want, then we can abort it.  Our current laws on one being charged with two counts of murder are along with what God wants.   (Exodus 21:22) “If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.”

    The term fetus surely did not come from our Lord.  God calls the unborn Babes.  (Luke 1:40-41) “And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.  And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.”  The Bible is also very clear on what the judgment of murders will be.  (Revelation 21:8) “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Romans 1:28-32) “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
    The next time someone defends abortion, remind that person that they’re mothers had a choice. Murder is a sin unto death, and abortion is murder!
