Abortion is not a budgeting tool (July 15, 2021)
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’”– Matt. 5:21

For years, some pro-abortion advocates have said that abortion must be legal and remain legal because abortion will relieve single mothers who are struggling financially of the financial stress that comes along with caring for a child. These advocates view abortion as if it is a tool to help women struggling financially to somehow get ahead.

Interestingly enough, however, scholars at the Charlotte Lozier Institute found in a recent study that the financial pressure that would persuade a woman to abort her child is likely to continue well after the abortion procedure. The study confirms that abortion does not help women who are struggling financially.

The study also showed that women who had an abortion because of financial struggles are likely to have a repeated second abortion due to the same financial issues. Abortion is not and never will be the answer to problems that a woman or couple may face in life.

The Bible explicitly condemns murder, and when one chooses murder (abortion) God’s blessings will not follow that individual whether it be financially or in other ways. God will not bless disobedience to the tenets of His Word.

LET US PRAY . . .
Father, please help women who are struggling through pregnancy right now to choose life. Lord, give them Your wisdom to see that there are no blessings that follow when one goes against Your truth and commits murder. Father, may the lies and deceptions perpetrated by the abortion industry be brought to the light and exposed. Lord, help those who are spiritually blind to see the evil of abortion. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
