Abortions Are Unsafe!

by PRB.org | December 2007

(December 2006) The Population Reference Bureau’s recently updated guide, Unsafe Abortion: Facts & Figures 2006, sheds light on the public health impact of unsafe abortion. An estimated 68,000 girls and women die each year from unsafe abortions and millions more suffer complications that need medical attention.1

More than one-quarter of the world's people live in countries where the procedure is prohibited or permitted only to save the woman's life.2 Yet, regardless of legal status, abortions still occur, and nearly half of them are performed by an unskilled practitioner or in less than sanitary conditions, or both.3

And in 2006, two countries changed their abortion laws: Columbia relaxed its ban and Nicaragua expanded its ban.

In May, Colombia’s highest court overturned the country’s ban on abortion, allowing pregnancies to be terminated when a deformed fetus is not viable, when the pregnancy endangers the life or health of the mother, when artificial insemination or transfer of a fertile egg occurs without the consent of the mother, or when pregnancy results from rape or incest.4

In November, the president of Nicaragua signed into law a broader ban on abortions—even in cases when a woman’s life could be saved. Previous legislation allowed abortions if three doctors certified that the procedure was necessary to save a woman’s life, in the case of rape, or when the fetus was deformed and not viable. The new law would help protect the right to life, which is upheld in the constitution, according to a statement on the president’s website.5

No exceptions are allowed in cases of rape or to save a mother's life. With this shift, Nicaragua joined El Salvador and Chile as the only countries in the Western Hemisphere to place such a ban on abortion.

In developing countries, about one in six married women faces an "unmet need" for family planning. They would rather not become pregnant, but are not using any form of contraception. Reducing unmet need can help reduce unintended pregnancies, which lead to abortions and unwanted births.6

“Thou shalt not kill.” ―Exodus 20:13

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” —Proverb 14:34

The sad truth is that women who have had abortions are GUILTY of murder. Such women have crossed the line, just as Eve did when she challenged God's Word. God says... Thou shalt not kill; BUT, many women today kill anyway, having no regard for God or His Word. Women who think they are exercising their "rights" by having an abortion are in reality foolishly killing their own baby. Do you realize that a baby is aborted by being sucked into pieces while alive, by a vacuum that is 29 times more powerful than a standard vacuum? For more information, please read Abortion Torture Methods. When a women permits a doctor to kill her baby, she is literally handing her beloved child over to an executioner to be tortured to death in a grotesque, painful, and brutal procedure that rivals the Japanese Unit 731 Labs of WWII. 

On the individual level, there is forgiveness for involvement in the sin of abortion. Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God will justly forgive those who repent and believe the Gospel (1st Corinthians 6:11, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God”). God loves you!

What is a Life Worth? (YouTube video)

Please take a look at this YouTube video. It will remind you that every human life is precious and that we can see this truth most clearly through the face of a helpless, innocent baby who can do nothing for us but allow us the opportunity to give ourselves to him in love. It teaches that joy comes through giving oneself to another for their own sake and that authentic joy can be experienced in the midst of difficulties and even amidst tremendous sorrow. Mostly, it will reveal the heroic courage and life affirming witness that is possible for those yielded to and animated by the life of the Holy Spirit. Take a look but make sure you have your Kleenex ready.
