Does that sound too direct? Does it upset you? Well, in the case of a fully formed baby ready for delivery who is snatched from life by a modern day Dr. Mangele it should. A baby that is full term or nearly so is clearly a living and breathing person no matter what anyone says. If the baby is capable of life upon entry into this world, my belief is that we have every responsibility to insure that the child is able to do so.
I don't want to get into a battle with anyone about abortion at the earlier stages of development; each couple will have to live with the decision that the woman makes and the judgment will rest on their shoulders. I say the couple because it takes "two to tango" and both bear culpability for the results of their actions. But I do think that when it is clear that a fully formed and aware human body is there and seen, that should change the equation for all. In my humble opinion to destroy a child at that point is nothing short of murder. And it is a subject that unfortunately is gaining open notoriety as more cases are reported and good Americans see the truth about the abortion "industry" which receives nearly a half billion dollars annually from the taxpayers.
What brought me to this subject today was the recent revelation involving the Planned Parenthood doctor talking about using body parts from a fully developed child in the brutal case of partial birth abortion. She very coolly discussed how they made sure not to crush the "good" body organs as part of the snuffing out of life so that they could be "harvested" and sold. Folks, when a society accepts this type of action and a doctor, a professional who has traditionally sworn an oath to do no harm, performs such a procedure we have not only lost our humanity but our soul as well. It is unfathomable for me to believe that God doesn't look down on such action without pondering a wrathful consequence.
Planned Parenthood and its supporters have continually said that the fetus is just a mass of tissue until birth. They constantly talk about the woman's right to choose and that the fetus feels no pain when it is clear that is not true after twelve weeks of pregnancy. So let's look at the question. If it is true that the fetus is just a mass of tissue why does it have fully formed organs that are so viable that they take care not to "crush" them when they otherwise snuff the life out of the body? I don't think they can answer that because the more they talk the deeper it gets.
Again, folks, each of us has to decide when a fetus is a life, but I want to remind you that yesterday on a talk radio program a representative of Planned Parenthood was describing the circumstances, vehemently defending the woman's right to choose even in the final stages of life's development and used the term baby when describing the mass of tissue. A baby is not a mass of tissue, it's a viable and special life that is a miracle of a gracious God. It's something for each of us to take to our conscience and ponder. I don't believe you can have God in your heart and not find this situation an abomination.
