Abortion: Speak Up For Those Who Will Never Speak

15 July 2010

I have shed many tears and worded many fears involving this topic. It is in the hopes of possibly speaking my emotions and helping others that I have decided to write this post. 

Abortion is a subject close to my heart for one specific reason: it breaks my heart to hear of woman and doctors together killing a human being. A child chosen by GOD. How can they know His plans? How can they give themselves the right to end a life? God gave women the honor of carrying children, but that is not a gift to be taken lightly or thrown away. Just think, that little baby boy or girl could have grown up and been a true example of Christ; he/she could have lead many to the Lord; he/she could have touched lives. And yet, in one foolish decision, the mother ends that life.

Of course, a good debater will consider all alternatives. I am willing to consider and debate fairly all that pro-abortionists would argue back in response to this post. Let us consider all of their excuses:

{1} It is the women's choice to do what she wants with her body

There are so many things wrong with that phrase. For one, who said it was the woman's body? Wasn't she created by the Lord? If you make something, wouldn't that item be yours? So wouldn't that make the woman's body God's?

Also, it is not just the woman's body. Abortion is not the same as having a kidney transplant. A human being is in her body, not just something to be thrown out. And who gave the woman the right to end a life out of her own "choice"?

{2} The child could have added to the over-population of the Earth

A scientific fact: the Earth is not in any danger of over-population. And I'm getting that from Dr. Jay L. Wile's Exploring Creation With General Science, which I read for science last semester. So you know it's the truth. :) And let's just say that the Earth was rapidly heading towards over-population. We still come back to this same subject: who gave them the right to choose whether the child should or should not live, even if there was danger of over-population?

{3} The miscellanies

There are, of course, all the little unrelated debates, such as "The mother may not have a husband, and so cannot care for this child adequately," or "What if the woman is not ready to have a child?" This all brings us back to the woman not having the right to choose - that's God's job. He made that child in her womb for a reason - and, often thinking nothing of it beforehand, the mother just ended that life, as if she were only making a choice, such as choosing between chicken or fish for dinner. 

Here's an interesting quote from Ronald Reagan that I found on Brianna's blog. I think is brings up another excellent point about abortion.

"I've noticed that everybody for abortion has already been born."
And here is a verse from the Bible itself...

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." - Jeremiah 1:5
To end this post, this song by BarlowGirl had alway brought a tear to my eye. The words are so poignant and true.

"I've had this same dream many times, it haunts my mind
It starts with a life but it ends every time
And oh, so many faces that this world will never see
A reason for your life but your heart will never beat

May the tears fall down
Let them soften this ground 
May our hearts be found 
God forgive us now
 Oh, what have we lost because we chose, we'll never know
 And loving You is better than feeling alone
 And all our claims to freedom have become these heavy chains
And in the name of rights we keep filling nameless graves

May our tears fall down
Let them soften this ground      
May our hearts be found
God, forgive us now

May our tears fall down 
Let them soften this ground
May our hearts be found
God, forgive us now.

  2. How true!! I couldn't agree more! Thank you so very much for posting on this... I should do the same.


  3. Kira says...
    This was a lovely post. I would like to note that there is an alternative to abortion. Its called adoption. Though, its not a very loving thing to do to a child, a foster home or an adopted family is much better than not ever getting that chance.

  4. Thank you for writing a post full of truth. It saddens me to think of all the lives lost -- little ones without a voice. Thank you for speaking up.

    May God Bless you!

  5. Yeah, Abortion is just...sick. I had to read like the 9 ways in which an abortion is committed. I won't convey the facts lest I make you sick. It made me feel queasy. My sister actually got a lot of rap about posting even one sentance against abortion so she shut down her blog. that's mostly why she's hesitant on blogging.... :) anyways, I agree. It's gross and heartless.

    p.s. if you're so concerned about the "woman's body" what about the "baby's body"...just a question for abortionists. :)

  6. Hello!
    I changed my blog address to :


  7. Abortion is sick... I am totally appalled by it - your post is so true.

    Oh, on a side note, because I debate this with other peers at my online school all the time (and it gets quite ugly), another point that the pro-choicers use is "the fetus isn't actually alive". Which, of course is... a falsehood. A "dead" fetus cannot be living and moving inside of their living mother's body.

    ... before I get too heated up *ahem*, I'll sign off now, Or else this'll be twenty pages long....

  8. Hey, Lizzie, I had a question to ask. From the 27 to August 6 I'll be on vacation and I wondered if you'd like to guest post on Shilah? :) If you don't have time, rather not, then just tell me! you can email me if you're interested, we can discuss details and get a date down for you. :)

  9. Abortion leaves me in tears whenever I think about it, too. Women are carelessly throwing away babies' LIVES! And, not only that, so many women aren't able to have children and would do anything just to have a baby while other women just carelessly throw away their babies' lives! It's just completely wrong. This post is very well written and is so true!

  10. Thank you so much for posting this, Elizabeth Rose! Abortion is insanely close to my heart - I lost an older sibling to it (my parents have not come to accept Christ yet). I can't think of it without crying for the precious babies who have never had a chance to live.

  11. Abortion is something that is very close to my heart as well. To me, life is very precious....and in today's world it is treated so cheap. May God touch the hearts of those women who do not value their precious baby's lives! And may Christians start speaking up about it and turn the world around!

    Love you!

  12. Hi,
    there's not too much I can add to what's already been said. What can a person say? Of all subjects, this just aches my heart.
    I also feel for the thousands of women who've been persuaded, either by individuals close to her, or by society's view in general, that an abortion is the best thing to do. Many, many women never get over the guilt of what they have done. God's grace is sufficient, but many of them feel 'unforgivable'. We ought to pray for them too. They have powerful stories to tell if they are able to warn others that aborting your child (oh, even saying these words is awful) is not an easy way. Many are haunted by their decision for the rest of their lives.
    Anyway, I wasn't going to say much! Just to introduce.... I'm Anne, from Scotland. Hubbie and I have have 4 kids; we homeschool. Our eldest daughter will soon be starting her own blog, and will, no doubt, follow you! For the moment, my blog is
    Nice to 'meet' you!
    Love, Anne x

  13. Hey, Lizzy, I just wanted to say two things;
    #1: Absolutely wonderful, heart-wrenching post! You are a very talented writer.

    #2: Thank you for sending me this link! I can feel inspiration flowing through me already! You are a lifesaver girl!


  14. @Miss Gwenea -- Aww, thank you so much, dear!

    Oh, it was my pleasure. I'm glad it helped!
