                “We don’t need to hammer that,” stated a Christian in reference to objecting to that personal choice that women sometimes make to kill the child AKA “Fetus,” AKA “Unborn child,” in the womb. Many Christians today interject their BUTS into God’s message. There’s scripture, BUT.  I love this one: I’m against abortion; I think it’s wrong, BUT… You may be thinking that this issue is a political one and should be left out of church discussion. But I am of the belief that the abortion issue is more than just a political issue, I believe it is a spiritual one. How dare we as so called Christians stay silent over the death of babies because we think it’s a political issue when it is nothing more than an abomination to God, the very bringer of life.
                In 2013, A Massachusetts woman charged in the deaths of her 9-year-old daughter and unborn son was arraigned on murder and manslaughter charges. Authorities say Fang Chi-Xue of Quincy fatally stabbed her 9-year-old daughter in April and stabbed herself in the abdomen, killing her unborn baby.
Really? A murder charge for the child AND the "fetus"? Why should she be tried and not all the others who kill their babies?
               Robert A. Davis was convicted of killing the fetus of Maria Flores during a robbery in 1991 when she was about six months pregnant.

…we are supposed to speak out, raise our voices, to protect the innocent!
Prov. 31:8-9
8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

Proverbs 12:28
There is life in the path of righteousness,
but another path leads to death (HCSB).

            4000 babies. That’s the number of babies that are killed in the name of politics, democracy, and choice. Jeremiah 1:5 
          Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee…
Words from God, but mommy decided to kill the baby maybe to save her own life, forget the trauma of being a victim, because she doesn’t feel ready, or she cannot deal with what President Obama referred to as a mistake.
Jesus showed special concern for the lame, the blind, the woman with the issue of blood, the lepers. In our day we mustn’t forget. 

          Some studies report that as many as 90% of couples faced with an amniocentesis report of probable Down’s Syndrome will choose to abort. That’s a big number, and they are all little ones! And yet, do you know anyone with a Down’s child that doesn’t tell you that child is the light of their life, an absolute joy, the most loving person they’ve ever known?
          Theologian, writer and pastor, John R. W. Stott, "Man is a unique creation, the object of God’s loving care in both creation and redemption. The reason the Bible forbids the taking of human life, except judicially, is that it is the life of a human being with a divine likeness." Our key idea is: human life bears Gods image making it sacred.

           The Alan Guttmacher Institute that does studies for Planned Parenthood, there are still over 1.3 million abortions a year in America. That is close to the population size of Santa Clara County. They also said that by age 45, 43% of women will have had at least one abortion. Now if you think that this is just people out there beyond the church walls—while there has been some decrease in abortions in our population, there has been an increase in abortions amongst those who claim to be evangelicals Christians—up to 18%. So, over 200K women who claim to be Christ-followers have abortions each year. One of the big reasons is that it’s easier to hide an abortion than it is a pregnancy. Will you stand up and defend those who cannot defend themselves?
