The remark, "The fetus was removed from the uterus and breathing." It amazes me how even as a child is born and begins to breathe that abortion clinics try to de-humanize the child by using the term, "fetus".
So many families enter into an abortion clinic believing that they are ending an unfavorable situation in their lives. They many times do not understand the long-term effects that this has on a human being. Post-abortion syndrome is a very real and devastating diagnosis. I myself have counseled women 20 and even 30 years after an abortion that are in emotional pain.
Abortion is a lifetime decision. It is not a quick fix! I have often heard women that have aborted their babies say, "it changes a woman." They could never have imagined how this would effect their entire life in such a negative way.
South America is suffering with an epidemic of the Zika virus. The virus, which is transmitted by mosquitoes and has been linked to the serious birth defect microcephaly and is spreading around the world. An organization is going, and may have arrived, to offer RU-486, an abortion pill, to women in South America for early pregnancy termination.
This organization uses a ship that will remain outside the territorial waters of these countries to offer RU-486. Eligible women must be less than nine weeks pregnant to receive this drug.
So this organization that states they are offering hope to pregnant women are going by these countries offering early abortions to women that have been raised in a strong Catholic culture that forbids abortion because of their moral beliefs. Hundreds possibly thousands of babies will be killed, because the possibility of the Zika virus that may have an effect on them and this is what they call hope!
There are now in the United States nine confirmed cases of pregnant women with the Zika infection. Three of those babies have been born, one with a brain defect. Two pregnancies ended in miscarriage and two ended in abortion. Two pregnancies are continuing without reported complications.
We are going to see abortion rhetoric increase tremendously around the world. I believe life begins at conception. The moment the sperm meets the egg it starts replicating itself and by the time it is implanting into the uterus there are hundreds of cells. This is life! At least we could say that a baby's heart will start beating at 21 days from conception it is alive. We pronounce people dead when their heart stops beating, why is it we do not pronounce life the moment the heart beats?
I could go on and on with this, but my point today is that life is a gift from our Creator. He is to choose when life begins and when life ends, not us. We are to fight for life and the rights of every human being on this earth. These children have rights also.
I ask you to pray as I see the tool that Satan has placed in his tool chest. He will use this to promote taking the lives of thousands more and label it, "hope!"
