A Solution to Abortion
Abortion ultimately is ultimately a spiritual issue. Thus the solution to abortion must be spiritual. Abortion is a sin issue. The solution to sin is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As much as I believe the answer is Jesus, there are several options to help reduce abortions.
As strongly as I believe that abortion should be outlawed just like slavery was outlawed, I do not believe that legislation is the solution to abortion. Laws can make it harder for abortions to take place, which will lessen the amount of abortions that occur, and laws can change behavior, but laws will not change hearts. We still have racism in our country even if we have laws to stop discrimination, and always will while there are sinful human beings on earth. Saying this, it is clear that as a nation we should protect the rights of human beings, especially the right to live. Thus there should be legislation that makes abortion illegal. Those who perform abortion s should be seen and dealt with as murderers. But the real solution is the Gospel.
Change of Behavior
There are abortions that may occur for the sake of saving the life of the mother. There are abortions that are because of rape and incest.For the sake of argument this separate these abortions from other abortions. All other abortions are because of sinful behavior, poor choices, or self-centered. The biggest way to stop abortions is to not have sex before married, If going to have sex outside of marriage, don’t have unless using contraception or ready to have a baby. Don’t being using alcohols and drugs and having sex. Don’t have sex unless your willing to have a baby. If married use contraception until ready to have a child. If there is conception by accident accept it and carry the baby to term.
If both men and women would change their behavior abortions would be reduced tremendously. But of course, most individuals do not have self control, especially regarding sex, so that is why there is the need of the Gospel.
Another solution to abortion is to see adoption as a viable option. There are multitudes of families that are wanting to adopt, especially newborn babies. We need to make adoption easier and affordable. We need to help women to understand that is a good thing to put up their baby for adoption if they feel they cannot raise a child. It does not make them a bad mother, it makes them a great mother to carry their baby to term. But it hard be very hard to carry a baby to term and release it to someone else. That is why there is the need for the Gospel.
Men and women need to be made more aware of the fact that the fetus is more than tissue, but a human being. More aware of the development of the baby in the womb. They need to made more aware of what occurs during an abortion, it is not just some procedure-it is actually the killing of a human being. Made aware it is an act that cannot be reversed. Made more aware of how many people who have abortions regret it later. But not every baby will be adopted. That is why there is the need for the Gospel.
All of the above are steps that can be taken to help end abortion. But along with these solutions, a solution, THE SOLUTION, is for sinners to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior. When Jesus is Lord in someone’s life, behavior changes. Sex outside of marriage stops, sex and substances stops, irresponsible behavior starts to disappear, and being self-centered goes away. When abortionists come to Christ, they stop doing abortions.
If Christians were as faithful, more faithful, to share the Gospel as much as they are to push for abortion laws, more people would hear the Gospel and become transformed. But here is the truth, there are Christians that support abortions and get abortions. Why? Because they see Jesus as Savior but not LORD. The first solution to abortion is for the Body of Christ to get right with God. The real solution is we need renewal, repentance, reformation, and renewal in the Church and in America. The GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST is the ANSWER!!!
Is the Gospel the only answer? No. But with the above options and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, abortions would be tremendously reduced.
The answer to the holocaust in America is Repentance, Renewal, Reformation, and Revival.
