The Abomination of Abortion: What To Do

Dr. David Reagan 90x115by Dr. David Reagan

First, we as Christians need to take a stand for righteousness. Our Savior has called us to be light and salt in the world (Matt. 5:13-14). We cannot stand by passively and allow the innocent to be murdered. Proverbs 24:11 says,

"Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die" (TLB).

Psalm 82:4 says, "Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked."

What could possibly be weaker than a baby in its mother’s womb? What could be more wicked than a medical doctor who perverts his life-saving skills by using them to kill babies?

Proverbs 31:8 says that we are to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves, for those who are unfortunate. Amos 5:15 admonishes us to "hate evil, love good, and establish justice."

The Abomination of Abortion: Political Cowardice

Dr. David Reagan 90x115by Dr. David Reagan

President Reagan spoke out strongly against abortion, but he was never willing to expend his political energy to fight against it. President Bush also spoke out strongly against abortion in his first campaign, but he too refused to follow up his words with strong actions — and by the time of his second campaign, he was waffling on the issue. President Clinton became the first president in history to openly endorse the right of a woman to get an abortion on demand.

But President Clinton — the epitome of the slick politician — took the coward’s way out. He said he opposed abortion but believed in freedom of choice. Politicians all over the country jumped on that bandwagon, hoping it would placate both sides. This position of being anti-abortion but pro-choice is the ultimate cop-out.
