The U.S. and 32 other nations signed a declaration last week that made clear that "there is no international right to abortion" and highlighted the foundational importance of the family unit to society.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a statement touting the document as an effort to achieve four main pillars:
Servant wrote: An interesting verse I ran across awhile ago: Hosea 9:11 As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception. We see the whole cycle of the beginning of life here, and God walks us right back to the point of conception.
Amen, and thank you for the scripture and comment. Life does begin at conception.
(1) better health for women, (2) the preservation of human life, (3) strengthening of family as the foundational unit of society, and (4) protecting every nation's national sovereignty in global politics. For example, it is the sovereign right of every nation to make their own laws in regard to abortion, absent external pressure.
Abortions are not normally done because of health concerns or because of a lack of healthcare. They are done because raising a child demands much sacrifice and love; therefore they are an inconvenience. Yes, all life should be preserved. Especially the innocent unborn lives. IMO, the family is the most important institution that God created. The above number 4 simply gives every nation the right to disagree with any pro-life statements made.
The above 1-4 sound simply like a political statement that gives lip service to saving innocent babies. But I praise the Lord for keeping this issue in the forefront. If it saves just 1 little life, it is worth it in my opinion.
I wonder if they would say the same thing about murdering your neighbor or murder during a theft. Rhetorical questions.
‚ÄúThe key to keeping abortion legal is to continuously delay its abolition with a never ending steam of incremental prolife ‚Äúvictories‚ÄĚ - Russel Hunter. Ignore Roe. Establish justice. Abolish abortion now!
Wow Jim looks like God is giving us four more years to be on fire for the Lord. I think believers should make this time the best for our king. It's been a real wakeup call. The freedom we have to proclaim His love can be taken away so rapidly. An Obama or Clinton would never have missed this opportunity of a crisis. Whew!
