It is now on the governor’s desk for his signature. You may remember him, John Kasich, former presidential candidate who refused to back the Republican Presidential Nominee. Kasich may not sign the bill, and if he doesn’t, I would venture to guess it would be because the bill will prohibit abortion in cases of rape or incest, again, after the heartbeat.
If Governor Kasich does sign the bill, the ACLU (the anti-Christian liberties union) is already prepared to challenge it in court.
For the record, I am withholding my thoughts on cases of rape or incest because those sensitive cases deserve more than a few passing sentences in a pro-life blog post.
I am definitely pro-choice, but the choice is not whether or not to take a baby’s life. Choices begin when one makes a decision to have unprotected sex…however, since no birth control is 100% effective, the choice actually begins when you decide to have sex.
Already deceived and narrow-minded activists in Ohio are chanting:
“O-H! I-O! Abortion bans have got to go!” carrying signs that read, “Stop Playing Politics with Women’s Health.”
Since when did ripping a baby from the womb cease to be about a baby being ripped from the womb and about a woman’s healthcare? Abortion is not healthcare. It is not healthy!! Least of all is it healthy for the baby...who actually dies...
You can call it a fetus, or you can call it a “clump of cells” but God calls it life. The Bible tells us in Psalm 139 that He sees our substance being yet unformed (in the womb) and in His book are written all the days He fashioned for each of us before we were formed. That makes us all pretty important.
Perhaps you don’t believe the Bible is God’s word?
I hope you get revelation before it’s too late.
But I digress.
I’ve heard people say that Conservatives are not pro-life, they are pro-birth, meaning that they don’t care about how babies are cared for once they are born. And for the most part, I agree with that supposition. Let me say it again, the choice begins BEFORE the pregnancy.
Pro-abortion activists point out that abortions were always available. Before it was legal, they were performed in dirty basements and back alleys, where women died. And that is true. But that doesn’t make neutralizing unborn babies any more acceptable.
In a world where people are lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, abusive, disobedient, ungrateful and unholy (2 Timothy 3)…deceived into thinking that they can live by their “anything goes” rules instead of God’s rules, where do you start to combat this war on the unborn.
I mean, how do you fight deception?
Not by flesh and blood.
So we start by praying.
And follow up with education…show them what really happens in abortions. Show them other options, such as adoption. There are so many couples waiting for babies! Remind young women that they are worth so much more than casual sex! And we give…find a local charity or pro-life clinic (such as our local Shoals Sav-a-Life) and help support them.
People who are pro-abortion are just as convinced as I am that they are right…
only they don’t have God’s word to back them up.
For those who have had an abortion, I wrote THIS. (link)
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
