Is Abortion Bad?

I was 13 when I first learned about abortion.  I asked my mother, “Is abortion bad?”

“Yes, it’s bad!  Abortion is the killing of an unborn baby!  It’s a terrible thing!”

That was it for me!  If my mother said it was a terrible thing, then it was.  Years later as a registered nurse,  I watched a video of an abortion. What affected me most were not the cries of pain from the unconscious mother.  It was the callous attitude of the abortionist.

He seemed unnecessarily rough as he jabbed at the mother’s insides.  I thought it was brutal.  He removed the baby’s body parts with a look of disgust. Did he know he was being filmed? If so, what must he be like without a camera on him?

I felt sickened and sad, not just for the baby and the young mother, but for the nurses and the doctor as well.  Everyone in that room would go home trying not to think about their day.

I wonder what happened in the earlier life of that doctor or the nurses?  What causes people to make baby killing their life work? What do they talk about on their coffee breaks?  What kind of people are they when they go home at night?   I wonder if they ever think about God.  Perhaps they try not to.

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.

    What gets me with people is they try and draw lines through things. They say abortion is wrong UNLESS it is a case of rape or the mother’s life is in danger. But you can’t draw lines through this. The Lord knows a woman is raped and yet he gives her a child. Instead of looking at it as a punishment or a curse, they should look at that baby as the Lord’s way of putting some light back into a dark time. Or what about when a woman’s life is in danger, the Lord knew this. It is not our place to decide who lives and who dies and yet that is what we do with abortion.

    I also hate when people say a man should not have a say in whether a woman has an abortion because it is her body. Well it is his baby too that she is thinking of killing. If a woman does not want a man having a say in her body, then she should not share her body so intimately with him.

    For those who are not ready for a baby and decide to have an abortion, have they not considered that their timing is not God’s timing. He gives babies to us when he is ready not when we are ready.

    That is the most heinous thing we have done in our country; and I believe we will suffer for it. It must have been horrific for you to have to see that…

    We have taken the 10 commandments out of all schools, so the teens have no standards to go by and this “fetus” is just an inconvenience, so get rid of it. We are already under judgment.
