Abortion: The Pros and Cons
Submitted by Bishop David Millar
Abortion, what is it? It is the deliberate removal from the womb of a foetus during pregnancy by methods that are quite horrible.
Medical – Abortion medicines are taken called Mifepristone which stops the hormone that allows the pregnancy to continue, and about 24 to 48 hours later Misoprostol which within 4 to 6 hours breaks down the lining of the womb, causing bleeding and the loss of the foetus. Now depending on the length of the pregnancy an operation may be needed to remove the foetus.
Surgical – Having used an anaesthetic, a tube is inserted into the cervix, and on into the womb; the foetus is then suctioned out, or a forceps is inserted through the cervix and the foetus is pulled out whole or in pieces. These are the most used ways of abortion.
What is a foetus? It is an unborn human baby.
In some cases women’ lives are in danger when a foetus dies within, or is developing not as it ought to be, or is in the fallopian tube, or is not correctly located in the uterus where it would develop. Likewise, those whose physical health is poor that they are at risk; ending the pregnancy may be necessary. For women who through rape or incest are pregnant, you may choose to end the pregnancy, but there are women who have given birth in such situations and are happy that they did. Investigation and analysis show fear to be the 98% reason why women abort their babies. Sadly, merely out of inconvenient convenience. Understand that abortion is an action that has consequences, and here is what I mean!
GOD’S word and response.
GOD says in 1 John 4:18a: There is no fear in love; but perfect love cast out fear: because fear has torment. From the conception of your life you were formed to be born. In Psalm 139: 15-16 David says: My substance was not hid from YOU, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. YOUR EYES did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in YOUR book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. GOD alone is THE GIVER OF LIFE and THE MAKER OF MANKIND. To take or end a human life deliberately without just cause is murder. In Exodus 20: 13 GOD says: You shall not kill (murder). When you commit murder you come under GOD’S judgement. GOD’S judgements come in the form of curses. Breaking GOD’S word automatically brings you under judgement (curses). Curses are carried out by evil spirits. These curses come in various ways such as feeling troubled, guilty, tormented, condemned, mental instability, a clear sense of wrongdoing or even as physical illnesses. Genesis 9: 6 says: Whoso sheds man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of GOD made HE man. Numbers35: 33-34a says: So you shall not pollute the land wherein you are: for blood it defiles the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore the land which you shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel (Barbados). Sadly, abortion (murder) not only brings judgement (a curse in the form of a spirit) on the person (abortor), a curse (spirit) comes into the land, and with enough murders in the land (country) a principality (territorial ruling spirit) comes over the land. Deuteronomy 21: 1-3,8-9 says: If one be found slain (murdered) in the land which the LORD your GOD gives you to possess it, lying in the field (abortion location, clinic or otherwise), and it be not known who (all who were present) has slain him: Then your elders and your judges shall come forth, and they shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that is slain: And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take a heifer, which has not been worked with, and which has not drawn in the yoke. Be merciful, O LORD, unto YOUR people Israel, whom YOU have redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto the people of Israel’s (Barbados’) charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them. So shall you put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of the LORD? The principality (ruler of lesser evil spirits in the heavens) mentioned earlier now sends evil spirits to people to commit all kinds of murdering in the land (Barbados). Here in Barbados we were previously under the 1868 the Offenses Against the Person Act (sections 61 and 62). Note the words the Person: which is exactly what a foetus is. We were all a foetus before we were born! A foetus is not some strange thing, but it is the forming of a person, and not what some others would have us to believe. Now in 1983 the abortion laws were replaced by the introduction of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act (Act No. 4 of 11, February 1983) and the 1983 Regulations to that act, which enabled abortion to become the number one cause of death in Barbados. We stand guilty before ALMIGHTY GOD, and must repent as a nation. Jesus died for our sins, and took the punishment for our sins (eternal damnation) in our place. Only the BLOOD OF JESUS can pay the price for the blood of these lives, and for any sin. Only by repenting can we remove the judgements (curses) – i.e. beatings, murders, shootings, stabbings, cuttings, lawless evils and wicked behaviour from our land, and do what is right. Know that this message is to all. Let us all repent on behalf of ourselves, our children, our family (past and present) and our nation before it is too late. Time is very short, let us do so while we can!
