          If an unborn child is not a human being, what is it: an inhuman being?  What is the distinction between the following?

1. Abortion (as birth control). 

2. Sacrificing a baby for better crop yield (as in idol worship). 

3. Death of an infant from outside forces (murder as defined by our laws).

          There is no need whatsoever for an abortion clinic to exist.  If there is a real medical need for an abortion, it should be done in a hospital where they used to be performed.  Those medical personnel that believe like I do would not have a problem under that system.  ‘Abortion on demand’ is murder straight up.  Abortion is a legitimate medical procedure that, as far as I know, was never against the law.   Abortion on demand is nothing more than birth control used as a substitute due to laziness.  There are many forms of birth control that are much easier, cheaper and less complicated.  What about Choice?  Do you really want to go there?  If there was no choice in the causation of the pregnancy, it wasn’t sex, it was rape.  Since rape is not in God’s plan, it must therefore be considered to be from the only other power in the universe.  There are those wonderful women that chose to keep the child that is a product of rape which proves two things.  1. Good can result from evil plans if God’s people choose to make the effort.  2. The devil cannot create anything on his own, so he has to pervert that which the Lord has established.  Life is established and begins at the moment of conception.  There is no question left about this fact.  “Apart from God, there is no meaning in life.”[1]  Oops, is not, in my opinion, a reason to end a viable life, and that is what abortion on demand really amounts to.

I used to sell medical equipment.  In my years in the field of gynecology equipment sales, I was exposed to many facets of the medical field.  When I sold for Gynemed, I was introduced to the line of Berkley Bioengineering products.   Berkley was the company that made the abortion equipment.  At the sales meeting where the line was introduced, the entire sales force expressed our objections.  It was agreed that we would not actively promote the sale of the equipment, but rather act as customer service.  (I still regret staying with that company.)  We had plenty of other product lines to keep us busy.  Many of the hospitals I called on had the abortion equipment, including the Baptist hospital that was very close to Jerry Farwell’s church.  One of the nurses I remember talking to at the University of Richmond hospital was considering changing her field due to the increased number of abortions.  She said that since the government had stopped paying for their birth control pills the women were using abortion as birth control. 

Another story I would like to relate involves an abortion clinic in North Carolina.  The owner told me his story.  He didn’t even have a high school education, but was the owner of several of these clinics.  He explained that when Roe vs. Wade became law, he recognized the opportunity.  He rented a building, the furniture, and the fixtures.  He also described the doctors and nurses as rented.  At the point of my meeting him, he owned three clinics, buildings, furnishings and all.  He was making quite a bit of money.  He still described his staff as being rented.  He also had the staff sterilize and reuse the ‘disposable’ plastic instruments to save money.

Healthcare workers, with a fervent belief that abortion on demand is a crime or a sin, are told that they need to find other employment. There really is a growing crisis in this country, and that is the lack of sufficient supply of qualified personnel.  Taxpayers, regardless of their beliefs, are being told that they will be funding abortion on demand.  I believe that these same healthcare workers and taxpayers would have no problem with abortion being performed for instances such as rape, incest, miscarriage, health of the mother, baby died in the womb and perhaps some other circumstances - real, legitimate medical reasons. 

          Let’s see what God says about it - In Psalm 139:13-14, David said: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”  Jeremiah 1:5; “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”  Luke 1:41; When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.”  Exodus 20:13; “Thou shalt not murder.”  Proverbs 6; “There are six things the Lord hates ,seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”

Margaret Sanger, the hero of the Planned Parenthood movement, is very seldom fully explained.  She was indeed concerned about the plight of those people who were being saddled with an over abundance of children.  Birth control was needed very much, if only to keep the women alive.  When abortion on demand became the law of the land, I was told by a close relative that it was a good idea because whites would never do it, and it would keep down the population of blacks.  Well as it turns out, that was one of Margaret Sanger’s reasons as well.  Some of her other reasons were, to limit the population of the poor, the retarded and physically and mentally handicapped.  Eugenics was also one of her areas of concern.  Hitler, and some others, joined right in with her.   

          Professor Priscilla Coleman –Bowling Green state Univ., Ohio said: “Terminating a pregnancy can double the risk of severe mental illness.  There are in fact some real risks associated with abortion that should be shared with women as they are counseled prior to abortion.  Among women, one in ten of all mental health issues is a result of abortion.”  Another area of concern is that the procedure sometimes causes infertility.
