Life does begin at conception! Every time an abortion is performed a beating heart is stopped and measurable brain waves are terminated. It is not just a blob of tissue. The child has a distinct set of genetics separate from its parents. So why are we destroying these lives? Convenience! But what is convenient is not always prudent. And it is never prudent to try and re-write God’s laws. God says do not kill! Yet Americans have killed 53 million babies since Roe v Wade. What are we doing? These babies are made in God’s image, as you and I are. He values them, and us, above all his creation.
Wake up America! I implore anyone thinking about aborting their child to face up to their situation and take responsibility for their actions. There are just as many families waiting to adopt as there are abortions performed in America. Give someone else the joy of raising your child. They will thank you and so will your child. You never know what God has planned for that little one’s life.
