Would You Consider Abortion in These Four Situations?

copying from maranatha777 (visit her great blog!)

Would You Consider Abortion in These Four Situations?

1. There is a preacher and wife who are very, very poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she is pregnant with her 15th. They are living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending abortion?

2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have 4 children. The first is blind, the second is dead. The third is deaf and the fourth has TB. The mother finds she is pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you recommend abortion?

3. A man raped a 13 year old girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?

4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She is not married. Her fiancee is not the father of the baby, and he is very upset. Would you recommend an abortion?

If you have answered “yes” to any of these situations:
In the first case you would have killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists of the 19th century.
In the second case, you would have killed Beethoven.
In the third case you would have killed Ethel Waters, the great gospel singer.
In the fourth case you would have recommended the murder of Jesus Christ.
With U. S. abortion deaths topping 30 million, only God knows what we have sacrificed in lost human talent and creativity.

We are not in the extreme poverty the Wesleys experienced, but we are a preacher's family joyfully expecting our tenth child. According to Canadian standards, we are well below poverty level, but they are wrong. We are richest people there are. Rich in Christ, rich in the family of God, rich in the love of our children.

Abortion is never the answer, even if it would have killed the worst of dictators or the wickedest of murderers.

to Cathy,
Actually there is no relation between financial freedom and number of kids, even though they may affect each other in some sense (I am saying this because many of our church member are below the living standard in UK even with only 1 child or NONE). And yes, I believe strongly that abortion is not the solution, Jesus is. God bless you and your family, I believe that children is God's way to reward us :-)
