This is a classic story, but still valid at pointing out that the unborn are human beings worthy of protection. I made some slight edits, but the key point is the same: Whether the killing is done inside or outside the womb, a human being is destroyed. Hat tip: Marilyn from Facebook
A worried woman went to her gynecologist (who was also a female), and said, “Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.”
So the doctor said, “‘OK, and what do you want me to do?’
She said, “‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.”
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence she said, “‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.” She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request. Then she continued, “You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.”
The lady was horrified and said, “No, doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!
“I agree,” the doctor replied. “But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.” The doctor smiled, realizing that she had made her point. She convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The act is the same!
It is a scientific fact that the unborn are unique, living human beings from conception. Abortion kills those human beings and is therefore immoral except to save the life of the mother.
Abortion is a sin but forgiveness and healing can be found in Jesus.
