The following was written six months ago when the videos of Planned Parenthood started to be released. I thought it was worth reposting.
I've thought about this for quite some time and decided that due to the current events surrounding Planned Parenthood, I would share my view on humanity.
Isn't it interesting how the term used for a child in the womb changes based on conditions, choice or political agenda? When a woman finds herself pregnant or suffers the heartbreak of miscarriage, does she say, “I’m having or lost a blob of tissue,” or “I’m having or lost a bunch of cells?" Of course not.Sadly that’s how it is in today's society. If a woman is pregnant, we all call it a baby … even when a child is miscarried. But when speaking of abortion, all of a sudden that same baby, to some, is “a blob of tissue” or a “bunch of cells”, and in the last two weeks, we've heard another term, "specimen".
Humanity is not something to be decided based on conditions, choice or political agenda. It is something predetermined by God. It's frightening to know there are people in our lives and in positions of power that consider themselves above His will.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart …”
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
