I am Pro-Life. Are You?

That is the question; a question once it is asked that will create much conflict and division, especially if we both don't agree that we should be protecting our unborn, rather than viciously, violently, selfishly disposing of them from our lives. I am strongly against abortion; I guess my tone makes that obvious. There is no question or even room for a discussion about this, it's plain and simply: abortion is murder.
What kind of a person, either decides to have their child removed and discarded forever? and, What kind of person actually does the killing? One could only think neither of the two have any sort of morals or conscience when they do either one. It hurts so much, and how sad it is for the one who is being killed can't even defend there own lives.
It's unfortunate and very sad, but the United States is a country that is filled with many very selfish worldly people, that do whatever it is they decide to do, even if it means murdering an unborn child, because they didn't plan it, or the child have special needs and won't be "healthy" when he/she is born and they don't want the burden or expense to take care of them. That is a selfish despicable sin against human life. Indeed my words are harsh against abortion, but it's because I respect and love life dearly.
Who are we to decide in our own selfishness that we can just destroy and kill life, life that God has given to that innocent unborn child. We have no right to even remotely think we are God, and that we can create and destroy life on our own whims. Yes technology and the advances of what we have done in this world are incredible, but should they be used to make and destroy the very gift of life that God has given us. God will most certainly judge all this selfishness.
Do we know for sure that maybe that one person, that group of people who might work together could indeed cure cancer or altimers was not a child who was aborted. Every child we kill as a nation and a planet is one less blessing this world has in it. We have no idea of all the gifts we loose as a planet when we kill an innocent child. How sad it will be for those standing in God's judgment when their day comes and they are asked, "Why did you kill that which I have created?" I sincerely pray for that person when they stand in the judgment of God.
