Q:

Why is abortion such a big issue for Christians?


A:

The spiritual condition of man is at the root of the abortion issue. Until man’s spiritual condition is changed by the power of Jesus Christ, we will not find a full solution to this problem. It is sin that produces the problem of most unwanted pregnancies, as well as all the other disorders which plague the human race.

It is also sin that produces the misbelief that women have a “right” to take the lives of unborn babies. The apostle Paul writes, “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like” (Galatians 5:19-21a).

Life is sacred, and we must seek to protect all human life: the unborn, the child, the adult, and the aged. Several Bible passages tell of the sacredness of life and speak to the subject of abortion.

Since the Supreme Court removed restrictions on abortion in 1973, abortions have risen to an alarming level. Mr. Graham strongly opposes “abortion on demand” and was instrumental in the founding of the ministry of Care Net, one of largest networks of pregnancy centers in North America. Care Net seeks to provide the most accessible and effective abortion alternatives possible. For a discussion on the alternatives to an unwanted pregnancy, you may visit Care Net’s website, where there are opportunities to call, email or live chat with someone confidentially.

Some of abortion’s unseen consequences are deep regret and guilt over what happened. If you’ve had an abortion and are experiencing this, you’re not alone. What you did was wrong in God’s eyes—but He has not rejected you or abandoned you.

    I need peace of heart, I need God’s intervention in my life. Otherwise am falling apart.

    Beautiful word Dr. Graham is done and also would we as the body of Christ must do in this day so we can save generations and lead them to Christ!-)+

  3. Sue says:

    One of the 10 Commandments is “Thou Shall not kill” What would a person say if they gave up their child and some day have to answer to Jesus when He returns. God created everyone for a purpose.

  4. Jacque Leek says:

    I AGREE WITH MR. GRAHAM COMPLETELY. I’VE KNOWN PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUFFERED THE CONSEQUENCES OF MAKING THE CHOICE OF HAVING AN ABORTION- FOR CONVENIENCE SAKE – AND THEY CAME TO REALIZE THE ERROR OF THEIR DECISION SINCE. “LIFE IS PRECIOUS.” I HOPE AND PRAY THAT AMERICA WILL “ONCE AGAIN” PROTECT AND TREASURE LIFE FROM CONCEPTION.

    Abortion is an abomination to God.

    God gives, God takes away. All things work together for good to those who love God

    I agree fully to all your comments. It amazes me how a man can say he wants his girlfriend to obey his thinking. In other words he wants his fun with no obligations. We have a problem with creation as our minister says he doesn’t believe it and we say you can’t remove any part of the Bible??

    Continued prayer for this to stop!
