To the editor:
Even some atheists believe that a human life begins at conception. And for those who believe the Bible is truly the inspired Word of God, they know there is much in the Bible that indicates that human life begins at conception, especially Psalm 139. The Bible also shows that God is the giver of life, a gift from Him. If God allows a child to be conceived, He has a plan for that person and wants that person to be cared for and not killed so that person can live out God’s plan whatever that plan may be. Think of all the amazing things that could have been accomplished by those who were aborted.
The Bible also tells us that God is a God of love and forgiveness. For anyone who has had an abortion or who has been involved in an abortion in any way, God offers His forgiveness to those who confess their sins and repent of what they have done. Through a God-given faith in Jesus, they have forgiveness. And they have comfort and peace that only He can give.
For those who stand for a woman’s right to choose, what about the woman in the womb? Does that woman not have the right to choose to live? Also, if it is important for a woman to have a choice, then let there be more of an effort to fund and promote crisis pregnancy resource centers where women are provided with more information and help than Planned Parenthood will ever provide. The government provides Planned Parenthood with millions of dollars of funding. Why not do the same for crisis pregnancy resource centers?
Please join me in praying for and speaking up for those defenseless, innocent little ones who cannot speak for themselves!
