What #Concerns me at this moment – an email I received from Christian Media regarding a petition on the topic of Abortion – known as Sign the Life at Conception Act by US Senator Rand Paul. The email begins with:
For 45 years, a few unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life. They have invented laws that condemend to painful deaths without trial more than 61 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.
The email further goes on to state – Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.
The Huffington Post wrote an article titled: Truth About Christianity:
In a 2015 journal article for the Human Life Review, William Doino summarized the views echoed in print, media, flyers, commercials, and teaching by pro-life Christians across the country, saying, “Abortion is the worst domestic crime ever sanctioned by America, and the statistics become grimmer by the year: nearly 60 million unborn children have been legally murdered since Roe.”
Furthermore a post from Active Christianity stated:
As Christians, we must base our life and our faith on God’s Word. Though nobody can scientifically prove when life actually begins, we know from the Bible that God is the creator of all things, and He is the source of all life. When God created the first man Adam, he was not alive until God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life”, when he “became a living being” (Genesis 2:7). In the same way, it is not a certain chemical combination that makes an unborn child live, but the breath that God has breathed into him, and nobody can know when that takes place.
So what am I concerned about: Why would Christian Media or any other forum request signatures to handle something God is already aware of and at the soft blowing of the wind could make it so that when anywoman become pregnant she could in no way abort that which He has breathed life into? Do you really think a list of signatures is more powerful than prayer?
