I just read the following quote from President Obama’s State of the Union address last night: “We still may not agree on a woman’s right to choose, but surely we can agree it’s a good thing that teen pregnancies and abortions are nearing all-time lows, and that every woman should have access to the health care she needs.”
Let’s dissect this statement.
First, notice that Mr. Obama takes the usual liberal course in talking about abortion. He does not mention what the choice is, he simply chants the mantra, “right to choose”. Finish the sentence! Choose what!? A woman certainly has the right to choose her profession, her husband and the toppings on her pizza. However, she does not have the right to choose to end the life of her child simply because that baby’s existence has become a nuisance to her.
Next, why is it a good thing that the number of abortions are decreasing if you say that abortion is not wrong? If abortions should be permitted, as you say they should, the lower number of abortions is not a good thing—it is just a thing. If you say that the decreasing number of abortions is a good thing, you unwittingly lend support to the pro-life movement.
Finally, let’s not fall for the argument that abortion is about health care. It’s not. It’s about abortion. Those who have abortions tend to have more health problems, not less.
Don’t be fooled by those who oppose the Lord. Their arguments are shallow and their positions are indefensible. Base your stance on the Word of God.
