What would you say to Emma?

 | 

Cities4Life wants the “What Would You Say?” posts to be as interactive as possible. Not only is this good practice for thinking on your feet during everyday encounters you might have with people who oppose your worldview, but it is also good training for those who want to do Frontline Ministry outside of abortion mills. And remember, scripture addresses the root of these problems.

“The baby I am carrying has severe health problems. The doctors say it would most likely end up dependent on machines to survive, and there is no guarantee the baby will live at all. I don’t feel emotionally able to handle taking this pregnancy to full term and giving birth to a child that probably won’t survive. I think abortion is the best option in this case, it would be less painful for myself and the child.”

    First of all, only God has the final say about the quality of this child’s life. I have heard many testimonies of women whose doctors told them things about the baby and the child ended up fine or at least having significantly fewer problems than were predicted.
    Secondly, there have been many famous children who were predisposed to physical issues and if aborted would have never been given the chance to become what they did. Beethoven was one child who had severe setbacks, as did his siblings.
    The issue becomes where do you draw the line. It becomes very problematic when we begin to Put ourselves in the place of God, determining who should and should not have a chance. No death of dismemberment is painless. And even the most painless death would be murder if inflicted upon qn innocent victim without a voice. God is bigger than physical problems. He made this child and
    He made you. Consider that and consider that you will see Him one day. He wants you to trust His plan, not allow the evil one to steal from you and destroy a child.
