Death Is Not A Choice By David S. Roberts This is a difficult subject along with emotions running very heavy on both sides of the issue. Many fear to strategy this subject with good reason, few want to take the remain that I will and perform because of my own deep convictions about this topic. In preparation with this article, several sad facts came to light. First, there is a deadly contradiction at work in American society. Second, it comes with an underlying value being overlooked in American society. As well as third, there is a terrible apathy about this subject in american society. You will not agree with every thing I write, and that's alright, I would simply ask that you simply listen and open the mind and your heart to the message. I.There is a lethal Contradiction at Work. We just about all saw the headlines. I do not think that there was one of all of us that wasn't shocked when we heard that Susan smith drove that car to the lake with her children inside. She killed them simply because, now as a newly separated mom, they had become inconvenient, disposable because her dating life was suffering. The outrage of the country was immediate, callers to radio stations everywhere challenging that she be worked 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 guy charged with vehicular homicide lots of years ago because the pregnant woman he struck suffered a losing the unborn baby The outcry is there, a baby is dead and the mom suffers a loss, and also the community cries out to stop this kind of misfortune, but provide that same man a license and a clinic and also 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 medicines and used again? What about the teenager who was charged with felony child abandonment, when she left the woman's newborn child in the trash bin in an alley? We all think, how could a mother kill her own kid But given the right circumstances, not one of these crimes can be prosecuted because in some cases, the fetus is a baby, and in others it's just a mass of tissue. There is a deadly contradiction at work here. The debate 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. If the fetus is human or not 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 who 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 had been caught and jailed. How many


of us heard about the Pro-Choice advocate who stormed into a church service one weekend and gunned down the actual Pro-Life Minister? Where had been that on the news? Or how about the woman who bled in order to death within hours associated with her abortion from the really clinic that the doctor who had been gunned down worked within. What about the woman who was dismissed 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 slowly ran over the pro-life activists, trying to deliver a woman to get an abortion? What concerning the complaints from abortion clinics to the billboards being built near their places associated with business that show a picture of the murdered unborn child. Pro-Choice advocates call them "tacky, in poor taste, and offensive". Quite simply, as long as what we are doing within here is not visible to the naked eye, then it's legal, guarded and acceptable. But how care you show other people what we do! Do any of these cases 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 media has an agenda all their own. But think of it, when it is choice that determines whether a good action is murder or even acceptable, then we have removed any standard of right and wrong. Choice doesn't make the determination of life vs. NOn-life, life is life regardless, the choice is in the taking of this life and that is not one that people have the right to make. This particular brings us to our second 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 personal inmost being; you knit me together in my mom's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully as well as wonderfully made; your functions are wonderful, I know that complete well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place." Jeremiah 1:4-5 "The word of the lord came to me saying, "prior to I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born we set you apart; we appointed you as a prophet to the nations." In reading through these and other passages, we view that life is important to lord, including the life of the unborn baby, whom God knows, whom God forms, whom lord can set apart. But in this country, choice is becoming 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 become hard to manage, to seniors parents who become incapable of fending for themselves, and to the handicapped who don't "contribute to our society". And if you feel that this sounds cruel, or farfetched, listen a moment. Within the Netherlands, where abortion is actually and has been socially appropriate for more years than it has been here, they passed a euthanasia law allowing people to kill themselves if they therefore wish. But today, in the


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


be humanely offer sleep, medical costs would plummet, Social Security could be saved, but what with regard to and nursing homes would no longer be a necessity. Sound heartless? every day life is life, whether it is the unborn baby, or the retiree. And a lady no more has the moral to the choice to end her unborn child's life than i have to end hers, yours, or even anyone else's. Is the unborn child a life? Consider these details : The unborn child has a heart beat by the 18th day. The unborn child's brain 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 actual unborn child feels pain. The unborn child is fully formed before the mother even knows she is pregnant. The unborn child can survive outside the womb at 20 weeks and with current technologies improving, that number can get pushed back to 19,18 Abortions can be performed on these types of 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 truth is you've been lied to regarding the normalcy and ease of this procedure. Abortion is a violent, harmful procedure. I will not describe the methods used, I choose to not. What I will describe for you are the saddest cases, the actual babies who are not desired, but are too developed to become murdered without risk to the mother. They induce work, and the child is left alone in a room separate from the viewing room at the medical center. They are allowed to starve to death, some who are as well developed are taken part way out of the womb while 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 going all out for all causes. There's a car driving around Kissimmee with loads of bumper peel off stickers on the back, among them are, "Save the Whales", "save the Manatees", "Meat is actually Murder" and finally, "I vote Pro-Choice". In other words, save every thing but the humans! We possess people devoting time and energy to leads to 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 trying to stop the murder of kids ! And the most tragic some of it all is that there is a horrible apathy among Christians when it comes to this subject. We think that there is nothing that we can do since the problem is too big. But that's incorrect, there's a lot we can perform. If you choose to picket an abortion clinic, that's legitimate, otherwise legal. If you choose to pray concerning the situation, that where our power comes from. Maybe you supports a pro-life organization financially, 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 beside me if you wish, what issue is more important than the life of an unborn child Security of our nation? how long do you think we will stay secure if we keep offending


God by the murdering from the innocent? Romans 1:32 makes it clear that those who give approval to sinners for committing sin, are just as guilty as those committing the sin. So the next time you go to vote for the actual lesser of two evils, or for your union job and the candidate is for the murder of human infants, just imagine yourself with your fingers wrapped around the neck of a newborn, who came along along with just bad timing, since your vote for a pro-abortion prospect is exactly the same as approving, actually committing the act of abortion. When I saw my daughter born 9 weeks prematurely struggling to breathe, 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 hands were almost as heavy as a crayola marker, she was almost six lbs, and she was the biggest infant in the neo-natal ICU. Others' arms were thinner than the usual #2 pencil, tubes caught down their throats allowing them to breathe, I watched as the nurses pricked heels to attract blood and the expression about the faces of the infants in pain. I do not believe that anyone after seeing the size of the premature baby or one of those new 3D imaging sonograms, I do not believe that anyone having seen that can still be for abortion without surrendering their humanity in the process. The question is now what will you do about it, because death Is Not a Choice. Jeremiah 29
