Death Is Not A Choice By David S. Roberts This is a difficult subject along with emotions running very deep on both sides of the issue. Many fear to approach this subject with valid reason, few want to take the stand that I will and do because of my own deep convictions about this topic. In preparation with this article, several sad facts came to light. First, there's a deadly contradiction at work within American society. Second, it comes with an underlying value being ignored in American society. And third, there is a terrible apathy about this subject in american society. You will not agree with every thing I write, and that's okay, I would simply ask that you simply listen and open your mind and your heart to the message. I.There is a deadly Contradiction at Work. We all saw the headlines. I do not think that there was one of us that wasn't shocked whenever we heard that Susan cruz drove that car into the lake with her children within. She killed them simply because, now as a newly divorced mom, they had become bothersome, disposable because her love life was suffering. The outrage of the country was immediate, callers to radio stations everywhere challenging that she be dealt the same fate she gave her sons, trapped in a car, at the bottom of a lake. Or what about Andrea Yates or even Kasey Anthony what individual with a quarter of a mind didn't scream out, 'God what's happening?' or even what about the case of the man charged with vehicular homicide lots of years ago because the pregnant woman he struck suffered a losing the unborn baby The outcry is there, an infant is dead and the mom suffers a loss, and also the community cries out to stop this kind of misfortune, but give that same man a license and a clinic and the baby he just killed becomes just another 'fetus'. And there is NO OUTCRY! What about the pregnant lady who was charged with, get this, 'reckless endangerment of LIFE' whenever she disregarded the judge's orders to quit using drugs and used again? What about the teenager who had been charged with felony child desertion, when she left her newborn child in the garbage bin in an alley? We all think, how might a mother kill her own child But given the right conditions, not one of these crimes could be prosecuted because in some cases, the actual fetus is a baby, as well as in others it's just a mass of cells. There is a deadly contradiction at work here. The discussion for abortion used to middle around whether the fetus really was a living human. But the pro-abortion folk lost that debate in every round, so the discussion has changed focus. Whether the fetus is human or otherwise is no longer the issue. It's PRO-CHOICE! For the woman who wants her unborn child, the man who kills the child, accidentally, is faced with murder. For the woman that doesn't want the child, she is billed $425 by a man that kills her child lawfully. For the Andrea Yates or even Kasey Anthonys' of the world, they're considered monsters, for the lady emerging from the abortion center, she is a hero of liberal causes. There is also a deadly contradiction in the news media, (surprised?) all of us heard about the Florida abortion doctor who


was gunned lower in his home, it was upon 24/7 until the killer was caught and jailed. How many of us heard about the Pro-Choice advocate who stormed into a church service one sunday and gunned down the Pro-Life Minister? Where was that on the news? Or how about the woman who bled to death within hours of her abortion from the very clinic that the doctor who had been gunned down worked in. What about the woman who was fired from her job from US West for putting on a pro-life pin to work Was there any protection of that? Outside of locally, absolutely no there was not. Did you hear any kind of news of the prayer group who were meeting outside a good abortion clinic who were beaten by police as they place on the ground? Or about the van that deliberately and gradually ran over the pro-life activists, trying to deliver a woman to get an abortion? What concerning the complaints from abortion treatment centers to the billboards being built near their places associated with business that show a picture of a murdered unborn child. Pro-Choice advocates call them "tacky, in bad taste, and offensive". Quite simply, as long as what we are doing in here is not visible to the naked eye, then it's legal, protected and acceptable. But how care you show other people what we do! Do any of these instances sound familiar to you, heard about them in the media? No, and you won't because as anyone with half the brain knows now-a-days, the actual media has an agenda almost all their own. But think of it, when it is choice that determines whether an action is murder or acceptable, then we have removed any standard of right and wrong. Choice does not make the determination of life versus. NOn-life, life is life regardless, the choice is in the taking of that life and that is not one that people have the right to make. This particular brings us to our 2nd truth. II.There is definitely an Underlying Value being ignored. Life is important to god. From the life of the unborn child to the life of the retiree, life is important to God. Psalm 139:13-15 "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mom's womb. I praise a person because I am fearfully as well as wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame wasn't hidden from you when I is made in the secret place." Jeremiah 1:4-5 "The word of the lord came to me saying, "prior to I formed you within the womb I knew a person, before you were born we set you apart; we appointed you as a prophet to the nations." In reading these and other passages, we view that life is important to god, including the life of the unborn baby, whom God knows, whom God forms, whom god can set apart. However in this country, choice has become God. We are ignoring a standard God Himself set. Whenever we ignore the value of life in favor of choice, the choice then needs to extend to the the children who are born, but who turn out to be hard to manage, to elderly parents who become incapable of fending for themselves, and to the handicapped who don't "contribute to our society". And if you think that this sounds cruel, or even farfetched, listen a moment. Within the Netherlands, where abortion is actually and has been socially appropriate for more years than it's been here, they passed the euthanasia law allowing individuals to kill themselves if they so wish. But today, in the


holland, doctors in emergency rooms are given the option of whether to spend the time and efforts trying to save a life, as a matter of fact they have issued little credit cards much like our organ contributor cards that say essentially, "please don't let me die, try to save me." If an incident victim does not have that greeting card, the doctors make which person's final determination as to whether they will live or die. And it was just ten years back that they introduced a regulation that would allow parents of any child born sightless, deaf, retarded, or seriously handicapped to decide if that kid should be allowed to live, or even left to starve in order to death alone in an isolation ward. CHOICE HAS BECOME lord ! Now it's no longer an issue whether the life is human or otherwise, now it's a matter of a parents', a doctors', a stressed out adult child's term, and a life can be legally discarded as if it were trash. With respect for life is so scarce, no wonder we've got children killing kids just to observe what it would feel like. You might say, Dave, what about the arguments the pro-abortion people use? Is the unborn infant human? Well, the bible says so, and for me that is good enough. But for people who can't accept the actual Bible, what about Science? technology says so too. Life is understood to be that which has ability to reproduce itself, and from the moment of conception, when each cell divides and reproduces, that's life. Some use the "it's my body" argument against ending abortion, when in actuality, it isn't the woman's body. The child is incorporated in the woman's body, but is distinct and separate from the woman, often having a different blood type than the woman. This is not a procedure to remove a tumor, it is a violent behave of murder upon a good innocent human infant. But let's just say that this isn't the case that the baby really is part of her entire body. We don't allow a woman in order to inject illegal drugs into her body. We don't allow her to sell her body in prostitution, except within Vegas, so that shouldn't really surprise anyone. So if we don't give a woman a right to do these things, how can she need the right to murder her unborn baby under the guise of "it is her body". It is a false debate entirely. But Dave, you might say, what about the children who are delivered handicapped. Wouldn't their "quality of life " mean anything to you? let me answer you this way, once the right of another person to reside comes down to the judgment of their contribution to society, or even their comprehension as to the globe around them, then all of us open the floodgates for increase moral disintegration. There are lots of healthy, sane people who only contribution to our society is in raising their children right, i would say that is a great contribution to society. We wouldn't have the inspirational stories associated with Helen Keller, Ray Charles, or any other handicapped individual who might not have contributed like Keller or Charles but perhaps they've value because life is important to God. And He values all of them. But let's use this same logic. Shouldn't we then because was done in the movie, Logan's Run, set an age limit up to which one might live? In the movie age was 30, now, composing as a 40 year old, i'd object to this policy, but let's say set it at 65. After all, they are done working then, so therefore cannot contribute any more to society. So that all Senior Citizens upon reaching sixty five years of age will be


humanely put to sleep, medical costs would plummet, Social Security could be saved, but what for and nursing homes would not be a necessity. Sound heartless? every day life is life, whether it is the unborn baby, or the retiree. And a woman no more has the moral right to the choice to end her unborn child's life than i must end hers, yours, or even anyone else's. Is the unborn baby a life? Consider these facts : The unborn child has a heart beat by the 18th day. The unborn child's mind begins to function at forty days. The unborn child breathes, moves and sleeps. The unborn child grows, hiccups, and sucks his thumb. The unborn child is operated on to correct defects and this is how they learned that the unborn child feels pain. The unborn child is fully formed before the mother actually knows she is pregnant. The unborn child can endure outside the womb at twenty weeks and with current technology improving, that number will get pushed back to 19,18 Abortions can be performed on these unborn children up to as soon as of their birth. Most people aren't aware of what happens in an abortion, and though not pleasant, the fact is you've been lied to regarding the normalcy and ease of this procedure. Abortion is a violent, dangerous procedure. I will not explain the methods used, I choose to not. What I will describe for you are the saddest cases, the babies who are not wanted, but are too developed to be murdered without risk to the mother. They induce work, and the child is left on it's own in a room separate from the viewing room at the hospital. They are allowed to starve in order to death, some who are as well developed are taken component way out of the womb as the 'doctor' strangles the life from the child, which upon death, is discarded in the trash. III.There is a horrible Apathy poisoning our Culture. There is a terrible apathy harming our culture. We've got people heading all out for all causes. There is a car driving around Kissimmee with loads of bumper peel off stickers on the back, among them tend to be, "Save the Whales", "conserve the Manatees", "Meat is actually Murder" and finally, "I vote Pro-Choice". In other words, save every thing but the humans! We have people devoting time and energy to causes like saving the whale stuck in the ice circulation, save the polar bears from global warming, bring back the red M&M, however very few are even attempting to stop the murder of children ! And the most tragic part of it all is that there is a horrible apathy among Christians in regards to this subject. We think that there's nothing that we can do because the problem is too big. But that's wrong, there's a lot we can do. If you choose to picket an abortion clinic, that's legitimate, if not legal. If you choose to pray concerning the situation, that where the power comes from. Maybe you can support a pro-life organization monetarily, that's another choice. But the single most important thing you can do only requires a few moments of your time. And that is, you can vote Pro-Life. Disagree with me if you wish, what issue is more essential than the life of an unborn baby Security of our nation? how long do you think we will stay secure if we keep offending


God by the murdering of the innocent? Romans 1:thirty-two makes it clear that those that give approval to sinners for committing sin, are just as guilty as individuals committing the sin. So the next time you go to vote for the lesser of two evils, or for your union work and the candidate is for the actual murder of human babies, just imagine yourself with your hands wrapped around the neck of the newborn, who came along along with just bad timing, since your vote for a pro-abortion candidate is exactly the same as approving, actually committing the act of abortion. When I saw my daughter born 9 weeks prematurely struggling to breathe, along with wires coming out from just about all angles, I knew which no one would ever be able to tell me that abortion would be a choice any longer. Her arms were almost as heavy as a crayola marker, she was almost six lbs, and she was the biggest infant in the neo-natal ICU. Other peoples' arms were thinner than a #2 pencil, tubes stuck down their throats allowing them to breathe, I watched as the nurses pricked heels to draw blood and the expression on the faces of the infants in pain. I do not believe which anyone after seeing the size of the premature baby or one of these new 3D imaging sonograms, I do not believe that anyone seeing that can still be for abortion without surrendering their humanity in the process. The question is now what are you going to do about it, because passing away Is Not a Choice. Jeremiah 29
