Several years ago an elderly friend of mine, who had many years of life behind her, made this keen observation about abortion. "If it's just a blob of tissue or fetus wouldn't the body eventually eliminate it through the natural process? Why worry? Could it be that it develops into something more like a baby?"
The dark side (Satan) was very clever to change the wording from baby to tissue or fetus so the conscience mind would not be threatened by guilt. Thousands of women throughout the years have bought into his lie. Countless millions of lives have been snuffed out through barbaric and heinous methods used by doctors and nurses who severed their conscience of right and wrong, evil or good, black and white. Their deeds now surpass what Hitler did during his reign of terror and death.
Another occasion I recall that was close to my heart was a friends husband weeping outside an abortion clinic as his wife was inside taking care of the "inconvenience" having been coerced by her mother, friends and relatives that it was the "right choice" to make. In this "pro-choice" society women also have the option of choosing life. Once the knowledge of what they carry in their womb becomes a reality they almost always "choose" to allow their baby to live. If our own mothers had embraced the worlds idea of "pro-choice" we would not be here today to experience life in its fullest capacity.
If you are one of those thousands of women who have "chosen" abortion here are some things that you can do to help you get back in the right direction towards wholeness of mind, body, spirit.
1. First you must come into the knowledge there is a dark, sinister plot by the evil one (Satan) to eliminate God's most precious creation through wicked and barbaric methods called abortion. Satan, having conveniently changed the name of baby to fetus or tissue, exempts the participant from any guilt of having taken the life of another human being and thus severs the conscience of the mother. Once you have been enlightened by this truth you are ready to move on to the next steps which is confession, repentance and forgiveness.
2. CONFESSION: Acknowledging that you have had a part in taking the life of an innocent child. It was the "choice" you made through coercion, lack of knowledge or convenience and you now realize it was a sin against the Creator God and Father of all mankind. This will be the most painful part of your regeneration.
3. REPENTANCE: He is the same God that became human like us in the person of the sinless Jesus and gave up his human life as a one time sacrifice for all the sins Satan could think up. Jesus covered the sin of abortion by the shedding of his blood on the cross for all mankind. Through his resurrection He is alive today reaching out to all those who would seek his forgiveness. " For God so loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
4. FORGIVENESS: Once you come to Jesus for forgiveness, ask him to come into your life and set you free. He offers acquittal for all sin and freedom from guilt. You can now go on to live out your life the way He intended it to be from the very beginning. "Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious ideal; yet now God declares us "not guilty" of offending him if we trust in Jesus Christ, who in his kindness freely takes away our sins."
My plea to you would be not to allow the dark side (Satan) to hold you in the bondage of a seared conscience that prevents you from having the relationship our Creator Father (Jesus) desires to have with you as his child. "But to all who received him, he gave the right to become children of God. All they needed to do was to trust Him to save them." John 1:12
Seek Him today and begin to live the abundant life he offers through forgiveness.
