believe they are doing Godís work when they try to prevent
or make it illegal for women to have abortions. In my
understanding they are doing just the opposite. They are
interfering with Godís wisdom and justice when they do that.
Thereís nothing that I know that leads me to believe that
God would give any religious or political faction the right to
interfere with the covenant that I believe God has made with
I donít believe the issue centers on when the soul enters
the body, although my guess is that the soul enters the body
when a mother and God decide they want it to.
God says, "Mother, as long as it is in your body,
you are to be guardian of this child, having sole authority to
determine its future, with all the rights and privileges
pertaining thereto, including whether it will be born into
life or not. This is only fair, for it would be grossly unfair
to vest these rights and privileges with anyone else but
The mother says, "I will carry this child and do
what I think is best in my understanding. I will trust that
God will help me make whatever decisions I need to make
regarding this child and then stand by me when I do."
The child says, "Mother, my loyalty and my love is
with you. I put my faith,
my trust, and my fate unconditionally in your hands. Being helpless and dependent,
trust you to do what you think is best and I accept your
decision whatever that might be. Whether this is my time
or not, I leave that all up to you."
It is, then, a mother's God
given right and responsibility to decide if now is the right
time for this birth to take place, and no one has the right to
interfere with her decision, because it is hers alone to make.
God loves freedom and God is fair and God is just. Our
role as fellow travelers on the planet is to love and support
her no matter what her choice might be.
All life is precious in Godís eyes and so it is hypocritical
when some people say they want to protect the unborn and yet
have distain for the mother and her life, or choose to
disrespect the relationship that God has with women. If
you would love and cherish every child that comes into the
world, then you would love and cherish every potential mother
too. And that love would not stop on the childís
birthday, but would endure throughout both their lives.
Every child born into this world is entitled to be loved and
protected as if it were our own. That means our attitude
and intention should be to help insure that every child is
able to enjoy all the rights and opportunities we would want
for our own children.
To those who want to do Godís will, God desires that we have
compassion for and offer every potential mother as much love
and support possible as she faces her decisions and her
future. Offer her your personal support, and/or work for
the establishment of a society that supports the needs of
mothers and their families. You can do this by making sure
that opportunities are plentiful and that families will have
the safety net they need to never want for the basic
necessities that sustain life. Further, you can offer your
support through legislative and social initiatives--the means
by which all families have access to the resources they
need--to insure the success and happiness of families and
their children, such as funding for education, medical care,
food, shelter and other amenities or opportunities. This would
be in keeping with Godís wishes and would support His
honorable covenant with women and with children. No
woman should have to consider an abortion because of economic
hardship that some mothers and children now face because they
live in a hypocritical, unjust, and uncaring society. In
the United States, many of the same people who would speak out
against a womanís right to have an abortion, at the same
time remain silent when children who have already come into
this world suffer unnecessary deprivations, or while their
government causes thousands, or tens of thousands of children
to get cancer or be born with grotesque deformities by
poisoning them or their mothers with depleted uranium.
If I know anything at all about God, I know He would never
authorize these people to speak for unborn children.
They have no right, nor the moral authority to speak for the
unborn. Google search: ďdepleted uraniumĒ
