One Dead, One Wounded...
It Is Legalized
You may be pro-choice, but From the very beginning GOD commanded,
"Be fruitful and multiply; fill the
earth and subdue it."
1:28, and Genesis 8:17, and Genesis 9:1
GOD did not add, 'If it is YOUR
will', or 'If it pleases YOU', or 'If YOU decide to do so',
'IF IT IS YOUR CHOICE', did He?
No, He said 'DO IT',
It is GOD's will, not ours, that children should be brought into this
If you will notice, this command was repeated at least three times in
Genesis alone, and there are similar verses in other books. Now, why does anyone

The word 'children' is mentioned over 1500 times in Holy
From that, I must deduce that 'children' are of
importance to GOD.
To the author of a book the fruit of his works belongs to the author.
To the Author of
Life, the fruit of His works belongs to the Author.

Note: The 'Didache' is the
teaching of the Apostles.
They wrote it and followed it in the first
hundreds of years before there was a New Testament.

"Your hands have made me, and fashioned me wholly round about,
yet you do
destroy me. Remember, I beseech you, that you have made me
as the clay; and
will you bring me unto dust again?
Have you not poured me out as milk, and
curdled me as cheese?
You have clothed me with skin and flesh, and have
with bones and sinews. You have granted me life and favor,
your visitation has preserved my spirit."
"The Spirit of
GOD has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty has given me life."
"For thou didst fashion my reins, thou didst form me in my mother's

I knew you;
and before you came forth
out of the womb,
I sanctified you..."
GOD has a plan for each one of us
and He knew when He would form us,
and He knew it for all eternity.
Holy Scripture is quite clear,
the Author of Life gives life, and only He
may take it away.
We, therefore, have no control over who lives and who dies.
We are all
GOD's children (Gal 3:26), and we must live by the rules of Our
No one 'owns' another human being. No one can say, 'I live but
must die'. No one can say of an unborn child, 'This is my body
and I will do
with it as I please'. The unborn child belongs to its
'Author', the Creator
of Life, and to Him alone, and not to its mother.
The mother serves as a
nurturing vessel, as GOD is forming the
child in her womb. Neither she nor
anyone else has a right to destroy
a human creature which GOD has
"Seek not death
in the error of your life, neither procure you destruction by the works of your
hands. For GOD made not death, neither has He pleasure in the destruction of the
living. For He created all things that they might be; and He made the nations of
the earth for health; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor kingdom
of hell upon the earth. For justice is perpetual and immortal. But the wicked
with works and words have called it to them, and esteeming it a friend have
fallen away, and have made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to be of
the part thereof."
GOD is Pro-Life.
It is GOD's will that we:
fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it."
As a reward for fidelity to Himself, GOD promises
"No woman in your land will be barren or miscarry;
will give you a full span of life."
"I will look with
favor upon you, and make you fruitful
and numerous, as I carry out My
covenant with you."
"Lo, children are a heritage of the
and the fruit of the womb is His reward."
GOD also promised a punishment for those of infidelity:
For those who
cause a woman to miscarry:
"When men have a fight and hurt a pregnant
woman, so that she
suffers a miscarriage, but no further injury, the guilty

"Whoever sheds the blood of man, by a man shall his
blood be shed."
"Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and shall be
filled with their own devices.
The turning away of little ones shall kill
and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them."
"Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the
test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love
him. Let no one say when he is tempted,
"I am tempted by God"; for God
cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one;
but each person is
tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has
conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth
More punishment equated to abortion:
they pass like the snail which melts away, like the aborted
fetuses of a woman which

Hosea asks GOD for punishment of
the Israelites for their iniquities:

you did watch over me when I
was at my mother's breast."
"And when you stretch forth your hands, I will turn away My eyes from

for your hands are full of blood.
Wash yourselves, be clean, take
away the evil of
your devices from my eyes."
"For my eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face,
their iniquity has not been hid from my eyes."
"But your iniquities have divided between you and your GOD,
and your sins have hid His face from you that He should not hear.
your hands are defiled with blood, and your
fingers with iniquity.
Your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue utters iniquity."
"Fathers shall not be put to death for their children,
nor children for their fathers;
only for his own guilt shall a man be put to death.
"They served their idols, which became a snare to them. They even
sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, and shed innocent
blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the
idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood,
and they were defiled
by their own works, and fornicated in their crimes."
"Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully,

the slaughter. If you say, "Behold, we did not know

Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not render
to a man according to his works?"

"Keep far from a false charge,
and do not slay the
innocent and righteous,
for I will not acquit the wicked."
One of the saddest stories in the entire Bible is in the Book of
"Then Herod, seeing that he had been tricked by the Magi,
exceedingly angry; and he sent and slew all the boys in
Bethlehem and all its
neighborhood who were two years old or under,
according to the time that he
had carefully ascertained from the Magi."
Those slain children are called the "Holy Innocents".
There is no one any
more innocent and helpless than a newborn child,
or one who is still in its
mothers womb. They cannot speak for themselves.
They are helpless and
defenseless, and they are all the property of GOD.
Scripture does not give a
clue as to the number of Holy Innocents,
but it must have been a small
number, as Bethlehem was a small town.
Compare those Holy Innocents with the
over 40,000,000 in the USA alone,
and the 1,200,000,000 worldwide, slain in
the last 30 years by abortion.
"Thus said the Lord: A voice was heard on high of
of mourning and weeping, of Rachel weeping for her
and refusing to be comforted for them,
because they are not."
Thus says the LORD: "Keep your voice from weeping, and your eyes from
for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD, and they shall come
back from the land of the enemy.
There is hope for your future, says the
LORD, and your children shall come back to their own country."

St. Augustine of Hippo, Marriage and Concupiscence, 17, 419 A.D.
is, however, one thing for married persons to have intercourse only for the wish
to beget children, which is not sinful: it is another thing for them to desire
carnal pleasure in cohabitation, but with the spouse only, which involves venial
sin. For although propagation of offspring is not the motive of the intercourse,
there is still no attempt to prevent such propagation, either by wrong desire or
evil appliance. They who resort to these, although called by the name of
spouses, are really not such; they retain no vestige of true matrimony, but
pretend the honourable designation as a cloak for criminal conduct. Having also
proceeded so far, they are betrayed into exposing their children, which are born
against their will. They hate to nourish and retain those whom they were afraid
they would beget. This infliction of cruelty on their offspring so reluctantly
begotten, unmasks the sin which they had practised in darkness, and drags it
clearly into the light of day. The open cruelty reproves the concealed sin.
Sometimes, indeed, this lustful cruelty, or; if you please, cruel lust, resorts
to such extravagant methods as to use poisonous drugs to secure barrenness; or
else, if unsuccessful in this, to destroy the conceived seed by some means
previous to birth, preferring that its offspring should rather perish than
receive vitality; or if it was advancing to life within the womb, should be
slain before it was born. Well, if both parties alike are so flagitious, they
are not husband and wife; and if such were their character from the beginning,
they have not come together by wedlock but by debauchery. But if the two are not
alike in such sin, I boldly declare either that the woman is, so to say, the
husband's harlot; or the man the wife's adulterer."

Alexandria, Christ the Educator, 2:10, 202 A.D.

proponents of Abortion would very likely support
aborting the Son of
Pro-Choice, exactly just what does that mean?
The persons who chose that
title did so because it sounds less repulsive
than what it really means,
"I have a
perfect right to kill another human being,
a creature of
GOD's creation, if I choose to do so."
Let us call it for what it truly is...
For those of you who would say,
"It is only a lump of flesh",
I am compelled to ask:
"And what would that
'lump of flesh' become if it were left alone in the womb?"
I am again
compelled to ask:
"Does a 'lump of flesh' have a heartbeat?"
"And behold, Elizabeth thy kinswoman also has conceived a son
in her old
age, and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month."
"And it came to pass, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of
