A scientific textbook called “Basics of Biology” gives five characteristics of living things; these five criteria are found in all modern elementary scientific textbooks:
1. Living things are highly organized.
2. All living things have an ability to acquire materials and energy.
3. All living things have an ability to respond to their environment.
4. All living things have an ability to reproduce.
5. All living things have an ability to adapt.
According to this elementary definition of life, life begins at fertilization, when a sperm unites with an oocyte. From this moment, the being is highly organized, has the ability to acquire materials and energy, has the ability to respond to his or her environment, has the ability to adapt, and has the ability to reproduce (the cells divide, then divide again, etc., and barring pathology and pending reproductive maturity has the potential to reproduce other members of the species). Non-living things do not do these things. Even before the mother is aware that she is pregnant, a distinct, unique life has begun his or her existence inside her.
2. A study in 2008 done concerning abortions in Va said:
Where Do Women Obtain Abortions?
• In 2008, there were 1,793 abortion providers in the United States. This is virtually unchanged from 2005, when there were 1,787 abortion providers. Seventy percent of all abortions were provided at abortion clinics, 24% at other clinics, 4% at hospitals and 1% at private physicians' offices.
• In 2008, there were 40 abortion providers in Virginia. This represents a 13% decline from 2005, when there were 46 abortion providers.
Restrictions on Abortion
In Virginia, the following restrictions on abortion were in effect as of January 2011:
The parent of a minor must consent before an abortion is provided.
A woman must receive state-directed counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion and then wait 24 hours before the procedure is provided.
Public funding is available for abortion only in cases of life endangerment, rape, incest or fetal abnormality.
3. Rom 10:9,11
Fetus- the young of an animal in the womb or egg, especially in the later stages of development when the body structures are in the recognizable form of its kind, in humans after the end of the second month of gestation (4-6 weeks arms legs and eye sockets are “easily” visible. The question is what is recoignizible?)
This is a fetus at 4-5 weeks. Any recognizable traits?
Gestate/Gestation-to carry in the womb during the period from conception to delivery.
4. The center for Bio-Ethical Reform published statistics that said: 1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient).
5. How far does our accountability go to draw their attention to this sin?
Gen 9:5,6- “lifeblood”: More sacred than the life of an animal is the life of a person. Animals may be slain for food, but no wanton slaying of humans is allowed.
“By man shall his blood be shed” This is not merely a permission legalizing, but an imperative command enjoining capital punishment. Only God has the right to take life, but in this commandment, it is clear that, When God commands man to execute murderers, He delegates this task to man, and it becomes his God-given responsibility to do it. GOD HOLDS MURDER VERY SERIOUSLY!! Jesus put stricter restraints on murder in Mt 5:21,22
Ex 20:13- Of supreme importance in understanding this is the distinction between the word rendered "kill," and another Hebrew word in numerous passages rendered, "Thou shalt surely slay him," or "He shall surely be put to death." In those places the word is [~harag]. Deut. 13:9 is an example. "Thou shalt surely [~harag] him." Now the word here is [~ratsach], which means murder. In those other places, it is [~harag] which means "to slay" or "to put to death." For that reason, this commandment is better translated, "Thou shalt do no murder." It is a false understanding of God's Word, therefore, to quote this commandment as a prohibition of capital punishment.
Nu 35:31- “ransom” satisfaction KJV Albert Barnes says that the Koran condones such action. This verse in context is dealing with a person who is going to a city of refuge. Some would try to pay a “ransom” to the victim’s family as opposed to going to a refuge city for a long time! Nonetheless, murder is never accepted!!!
ILLUS: A woman goes to a doctor looking to have an abortion. She explains that she already has a young child with a mental illness and cannot raise another at the same time. It would just be to difficult. The doctor lets her know he understands her anxiety and has a different solution. He says, “Why don’t you just kill the child with the mental illness and give birth to the unborn? You already know this child has a mental illness and possibly the unborn child will be born without a mental illness.” The lady calls the doctor insane and says that would be murder. The doctor explained, “You have come in here and decided on of your children had to die so your life would be less hectic. I understand your difficulties. I am just giving what appears to be a more logical choice that could possibly greaten the satisfaction in your life. So, I’m offering you a choice which child will die for your life of ease?”
Abortion is murder. Murder is sin. This nation went crazy over Casey Anthony. Meanwhile, a bunch of unborn children are murdered during that child that was never spoken of! How long will we sit back and watch this American Holocaust?
