GOD. But I’ll get back to Him in a minute.
God gave us free will, which also includes opinions….and opinions are like *AHEM* elbows, just about everyone’s got one. When it comes to the abortion question, this is typically the answer: ‘Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one’. WOW…if that doesn’t pass the buck.
Lots of people, men and women, that approve of abortion have never had one nor intend to. So why the fight? Humans want to BE God, not be more Godly.
An article said, “Imagine if I said, ‘Don’t like slavery? Then don’t own a slave.’ Or, ‘Don’t like spousal abuse? Then don’t beat your wife’!” Read the rest HERE.
I have to admit that I thought the same way about abortion many years ago. It seemed a linear way of thinking but the reality is that it was a way NOT to think about it. Pass the buck.
Another article looks into how Jews feel about abortion in situations that suit them (Jews are only about 2% of abortions): “In situations where the mother’s health is at risk and the fetus (he explicitly said fetus) is not viable, Jewish law errs on the side of the mother’s health. I should have the operation and I should not bury the fetus – it is not a life.” I’ve always found it incredible that after the Holocaust Jews would NOT want to kill their own, especially through abortion or eugenic abortion. After all, it was through a eugenic plot that millions of Jews lost their lives – so how is abortion death different from Auschwitz? Both the unborn and the born Jews were innocent! But that is for another post. Read the rest HERE and another HERE.
The opinion of the rape/incest (would they not be the same?) ‘exception clause’ is flimsy and costs lives. The truth is that ‘prolife’ candidates use the loophole to secure the undecided and keeps the money pumping into Planned Parenthood and the like. Government as usual. However there are those rare exceptions who state unequivocally they are against ALL abortion, and thank God for them. Rarely do they see an elected office, unfortunately.
Interestingly, while watching a news show this morning, there were men in one group, and women in the other discussing the election. Men that voted for Obama in ’08 are not voting for him again over economy issues. However, women are STILL voting for Obama because of Obamacare and reproductive issues/health/priorities which of course equals abortion. Seems that men are thinking with their BRAIN and women with??? Isn’t that a paradox…
Okay, this is what we have ascertained thus far: 1) Most Americans are passing the buck on abortion, 2) Jewish women need to protect their unborn in all circumstances, 3) The ‘exception clause’ is a copout, 3) Men think with their brain – women with their reproductive parts, 4) The Government is still the government no matter who is in office, 5) God has been taken out of the equation.
Understanding that this is all truly temporal, we Christians need to understand the One who: 1) ordains Life, 2) gives Life, 3) opens the womb and closes the womb, 4) numbers the hair on our head, 5) made us in His image, 6) provides for our needs, 7) and loves us in spite of ourselves with mercy and Grace.
This election means MUCH but GOD is in control, not us. The Bible says, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.” God will have His way:
