(ThyBlackMan.com) The values on which pro-life activists are basing their solutions to abortions are not biblically  based. We, together, will factually examine this issue. Even, a 5th grader will be able to understand, what the Bible says, in regard to this issue, that is, if understanding is what you truly seek.

America does not have an abortion problem; it has a sin problem. The real problem is, do the American religious communities believe in the principles, judgments, precepts and verses, as laid out in the very Bible, that they are obligated and required to live up to and defend, as the Lord our God has laid out solutions, when it comes to sin.  And yes, the solutions include, as “the current hypocritical crop of Evangelicals” like to say, the murder of an unborn child.

It is not commonly known, but the Roe v. Wade decision made, by the Supreme Court of the United States, was actually supported “by five” Republican Party-appointed Justices and the Chief Justice, Warren Burger, was an appointee of Republican Party President, Richard Nixon. The significance of the five Republican Justices voting in favor of Roe v. Wade, cannot be understated, as had the Democratic Party-appointed Justices, not voted with the majority Republican-appointed Justices, the right of a woman to choose to abort an unborn child, would still be the law of the United States. The Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision was a landmark, 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a woman’s legal right to an abortion. The Court ruled, in a 7-2 decision, “that a woman’s right to choose an abortion,” was protected by the privacy rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

So, at this point, let’s hash out the issue of abortions from a Biblical stand point. You may go to your Bible and verify, what is about to follow. There is no intent to spin this issue.   The abortion issue has been politicized, by the current Republican Party and “hypocritical Evangelicals,” for their own nefarious gains. You only need to examine some of the state legislatures sponsoring these bills; they are some of the most overtly, racially oppressive and anti-equal rights states in our union. They have advanced a  misinformation campaign, when it comes to the scripture of the Holy Bible and a woman’s right to choose, when it comes to her body, in order to get gullible voters to vote for Republican candidates, because of this one issue. Roe v. Wade, the decision by the Supreme Court, simply gives women the right to choose, whether they will follow God’s edict, when it comes to the issue of aborting a fetus. That’s no different, then you as a person having the choice to sin or not to sin. However,  God tells everyone, if you make the choice, that is not in keeping with His commandments, you can expect to suffer consequences for your sinful behavior. See Deuteronomy, the 28th chapter, starting at the 15th verse.

Here is what the Holy Bible clearly and unambiguously states, when it comes to a woman’s right to choose and notice, these scriptures do not differentiate, in regard to men or women. The scriptures apply to both, men and women. Go to the texts of these verses, and see for yourself.  The verses do not say, only men have the right to choose!

Deuteronomy 30:19
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Joshua 24:22
And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.

Judges 10:14
Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

Proverbs 1:29
For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

Luke 10:42
But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

So you clearly see, that God, does not take from a woman and anybody else, the ability to choose, when it comes to walking in His ways and following His commandments, statues, and judgments. The propaganda, that the current Republican Party promotes and has ingrained in the minds of non-readers of  and those who do not study scripture, is that the Lord our God, in some manner, has taken away the right to choose from women. And that, is just not true. There is no scripture in the Holy Bible that supports, that notion. The verses do not exist. The simple point, being made here, is that women, just like men, according to the Bible, have the God given right, “to choose,” whether they  indulge in sin or follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Of course, abortion is a sin, and any woman who chooses that sin, is guilty of violating, the commandment to multiply life. Given that; a clear deterrent to women, considering an abortion, is an effective confession from women that conveys their experience of the consequences of the sin of aborting a child. But, we rarely see such confessions today, by women or men for that matter, in most churches, primarily due to confessions not being politically correct or encouraged. Here are the relevant scriptures from the Bible itself, which clearly states how to reduce sin, and the rate of abortions, which of course is a part of that sinful universe. Please, look-up these verses and read the text of each, yourselves!

Leviticus 5:5
And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:

Psalms 32:5
I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.

James 5:16
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

There is almost universal agreement within the American society and indeed worldwide, aborting of a fetus or intentionally terminating a pregnancy, is a sin. However, there is little agreement, when it comes to solutions to this sin. Thus, the current Republican Party, along with hypocritical Evangelicals have exploited this lack of agreement, when it comes to the solutions surrounding the abortion issue; using the issue to advance their political agenda. And now, we as a nation are stuck with the politicization of this issue, which is unfair to us and to the millions of women who find themselves engulfed by this campaign of politicization. They are able to do this, because the American church, has largely abandoned its responsibility in providing women and men with the  experience of confessing, as outlined in the Bible to the sin of abortion and all sin.

If you, do not believe that confessions work, when it comes to impacting sinful behavior, you need only look to the organizations of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.  At these meetings, one must confess in front of others that he or she is an alcoholic or an addict, before speaking about the consequences of their use of alcohol and narcotics. These two organizations, use the principles of confessions, as laid out in scriptures of the Bible, of one’s sinful behavior, when it comes to the abuse of alcohol and narcotics. In the case of Alcoholics Anonymous, they have been doing it with great success for approximately 85 years, and Narcotics Anonymous has been doing it with the same success, when it comes to narcotic addiction for approximately 70 years.

At the heart of these organizations success, is a 12 step program, which emphasizes confessions, as a mean to free the user from the addiction of these drugs, and forever change their lives. I make the argument, that the power of confessions, as described in the Bible above, not only helps the individual, but it also affects the listener. Others are chastened  and disciplined by one’s words. Public confessions in front of an entire congregation, or even small group confessions reminiscent of the early Christian church, especially when it comes to the issue of aborting a child, will have an affect. The affect will not only be upon the speaker in terms of healing, but also upon listeners, who maybe thinking about having such a procedure or know of someone, who might be thinking of having the procedure, because the Bible shows us the power of confessions, when it comes to sin.

This is why I stated at the beginning of this piece, the values on which pro-life activists, are basing their solutions to abortions are not biblically based, because they have dismissed the wisdom of the Word of God, when it comes to the use of confessing. These people, who call themselves Christians and indeed, the American church have abandon their responsibility to use the solution of confessions, as outlined by the Lord our God, to reduce the sin of abortion and unhealthy sexual encounters, which lead to an abortion.

Here is the conclusion of this matter; there are, too many, well meaning people, some Christians among them, who would rather follow an admitted liar, the current Republican Party, which has politicized the sin of abortion for political gain, and hypocritical Evangelicals, instead of the wise teachings, as detailed in the Holy Bible, which is the Word of the Living God.

Refer this article to your Pastor or Spiritual Leader and ask them to comment on it, for further clarity.  Biblical facts and the truth matters.

  1. I for one don’t like Abortion…it is murder, still it historically is not the same as a fully formed post-birth adult..

    That is the consensus of our republic.

    Trevo Craw get it through you extremist skull that we live in a state of Separation of Church and State. If you don’t like it move to Turkey or Saudi Arabia or even Russia. Our loyalty is to the Republic not to Jesus Christ. You sound like a Medieval Barbarian. Of course we don’t support slavery. We amended that through altering the Republic…

    You seem to think that there is some sort of shining gleam of morality where there is none. Like Bitcoin humanity itself is merely a decentralized moral base. The majority of African Americans think Homosexuality is somewhat wrong hence the stigma. The opposite can’t be seen for adultery…especially millennial African Americans regarding adultry. ~92% acceptance

    At one point we worshipped period blood from women…even traces of Homosexuality amongst what we now call Nigeria happened in ever delicate amounts regarding tribal power/kings before occupation. (They don’t say we abandoned God for nothing 😉

    See the beauty of Morality is that it changes and is flexible and fluid for the times when needed. It is warped and shaped for the good of society…FORWARDS.

    Taking control of Women’s Wombs is insane…I hate abortion..but it isn’t “real murder”. I want the Planned Parenthood Clinic dissolved for taxpayer dollars too. You can be against Homosexuality, but if you start bullying or infringing upon rights severely you must be taken down. (I as a pro-gay liberal support people’s rights to NOT bake a gay wedding cake …but that’s about it).

    My allegiance is to the Republic…not Christian Shariah../before you begin your idiocy of (what about slavery)…> we have taken precautions that some things like Sexuality or Abortion can be discussed while slavery simply can’t with no room for further discussion. Guesss what??? By MAJORITY CONSENSUS.

    The age of consent for sexual intercourse was 13 in the year 1880.

    Going by God’s law established by hormones that would be okay now.

    That explains why Churches are so linked to “pedophilia” (I say quotes because it means nothing compared to “biblical law”). Curiously this would be just the right term for “abomination” but noooo..

    The Bible furthermore has many contradictions and can be interpreted at any given way, which is watered down by decentralized consensus that is the moral framework of society. Because the latter and former are really the same. “OBEY YOUR MASTER” was once given extreme prevalence (and not just by white people either). Even further verses cited to support this can be debated!!

    Ironically you bow down to a centralized religion, not realizing that aformentioned centralized religion has laws (a few of which I spoke on) that vary based on time period and society.

    By your reasoning punishing people for adultery should be re-instituted, otherwise feminism, adultery etc can’t be contained.

    Religion NOT the lack of it indeed is a slippery slope.

    If religious freaks had your way atheists, gays, and adulterers would be put down. Women would be stuck in the kitchen again destined to only serve men.

    That probably turns you on you sicko!

  2. Trevo Craw says:

    To You Cowards Who Support Abortion,

    Sit through one and look at the unborn child ripped apart piece by piece then say that is the right thing to do. Or say it is just the woman’s body. Or say God sanctions such evil. You can’t unless you have reprobate minds and dark hearts of denial. And if you do, maybe your mothers should have had an abortion.

  3. Trevo Craw says:

    To “Trevo’s Son” Which You Are Not,

    My sons are godly and they don’t make excuses for killing innocent unborn children. Your masquerade is just plain ignorant and serves no purpose. Try to be productive or else you are part of the problem

    AND JAMES:

    Maybe you would have been fine with slavery too and segregation, both of which were the law of the land at one time in America.

  4. Trevo Craw says:

    To James,

    In your first paragraph you argue two points against each other. And you leave out that satan is the ruler of this world system. You also leave out that righteousness exalts a nation, not sin. If the laws of man stand against the laws and authority of God, we are to choose God’s rules, not that of man’s. You don’t seem to get that. Instead your argument is to go along with the sin because it is the law of the land. But you also forget states have their own laws as well. And a number of them like Georgia and Alabama make abortion illegal. Thus your entire argument folds in on itself from several angles. God determines what life is and who should be authorized to take it.

    You will not find anywhere under the New covenant that God authorizes women to take innocent life to cover for their fornication nor lack of responsibility. If you are going to use the Bible, know what you are talking about and you don’t.

  5. James Davis says:

    To Mr. Craw and others, those who are faithful to the Word of the Living God and to those who may become followers:

    Here is what we all must understand, the act of committing an abortion is a sin. As stated in the article, America does not have an abortion problem; America has a sin problem. However, we live in the United States and the United States is governed by its Constitution. And when the Supreme Court looked through the lens of that Constitution, and by the way, it was a Republican Court; those five Republican Justices decided constitutionally women, when seeking to abort a child were not in violation of this nation’s laws.

    The Lord our God states He is responsible for the creation of governments, all governments, which make decisions, when it comes to “their laws.” These governments are not wrong for doing that; as God created them for that purpose.

    Colossians 1:16
    For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    The government spoke on this issue in 1973, and again, as a matter of fact, it was Republican Judges, who presided over that decision. Having done that, it was and still is up to the church to deal with that decision. The church, as a whole (not every single church), instead of dealing with the decision, by going to the Bible, handed the Roe vs. Wade Decision, off to politicians to see if they could reverse that decision, rather then viewing this issue of aborting a child as the sin it really is, no different from adultery, stealing, unlawful murder, etc. The Lord our God has outlined a solution to sin and part of that solution is the confession. Instead of organizing creatively around that solution, creating a space for confessions within the church, the church let us down, leading us to the politicization of this issue.

    However, we must realize, the church has dropped the ball in the past. During the ministry of Jesus, the leadership of the church did not measure up; the church failed us during slavery, Jim Crow, and the Civil Rights era and I am sure there are other times, when the organized church has failed us, also.

    Nevertheless, that does not mean we, as Christians, should or, have to follow today’s church down the rabbit hole of politicizing the abortion issue. Alcoholic Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, as God intended, demonstrates to us that the process of confessions work, when it comes to impacting sinful behavior. This is the message, we must take to the church. We must be creative in attempting to re-incorporate this message back into the church, because we know it works, when it comes down to saving the lives of unborn children.

    Here is what we know as believers, that the Living God has subjected both men and women to consequences due to the sin of abortion. We know also, there are many women who want to confess and talk about these consequences; they want to educate others, in that they want to tell them that they don’t want to go down the road of abortion; they want to tell us why they felt they had to abort a child, and they too want a different outcome. These women deserve to be heard.

    Will confessions eliminate all abortions? No. Has all the sins of lying, stealing, adultery, whoredom and any number of other sins been eliminated? No.

    Nevertheless, as Christians, we are obligated to practice the Word of the Lord, even when leaders of the church do not. And believe it or not, showing through our actions that the sin of abortion is also subject to confessions, we follow the message of Jesus Christ. God never said it was going to be easy, as it was not easy in Jesus’ time to change the direction of the organized church. But we must press ahead, knowing the Lord our God is with us.

  7. Trevo Craw says:

    Trevo Craw, you only want to hook up to white zaady and jump on the social media lap of the alt-right.

    Trevo Craw is the definition of a born and bread tap-dancing coon.

    Go lick you buttered biscuits off masters shoe you Sambo-coon.

    We are dealing with too many kids as it is. Now you promote them possibly living the lives of misery. Know women have to do “it” themselves??

    Tell us what the seamen of Alex Jones tastes like…

    Work your neck Trevoria! work it, work it, work it!!! OOOOOHHHH WEEEEE’! (song)

  8. You “Christians” are nonsensical.

    Do you donate to foster kids or work to improve their system? Have you started campaigns against abuse and near slavery conditions in FOSTER HOMES?

    Do you protest against Saudi Arabia’s Genocide of Yemeni civilians with our tax dollars/jobs funding it?

    Do you protest against 70% of nature being destroyed by humanistic expansion? Do you protest against the inherent obvious dangers of 5G Wifi?

    Do you protest against McDonalds, Monsanto etc and the dangerous diseases they promote and cause millions of us to die early? Do you protest against genetic manipulation of God’s precious crops?

    Do you protest largely against Black on Black murder in Chicago and other places?

    You do know the church of old referenced 1st tri-mester abortions as legit right?

    STAY OUT OF MY F**** WOMB AND BODY YOU PIECE OF SH***T

    GO BITE YOUR BALLS OFF BYTCH A@@ NEEGA!

  9. ThouRealSolomon says:

    I am sharing the previous brother’s frame of mine and am sick and tired of this.

    You Christians are disgusting and pray to an idol. The Tribune or Trinity, is nauseating and was for spiritual reasons not to be associated with THE MOST HIGH!

    I have witnessed disgusting troll armies try to slander God Farrakhan. But you can’t use scripture NO you have to bring all kinds of irrelevant stuff. Even a white hip-hop song. You Christians are a din of SNAKES, AND VIPERS. It is not wonder our Quaran says don’t take one as your friend.

    Keep HIS name out your mouth you heathen scum *hores…meanwhile 92% of you are adulterous, you are indifferent to murdering babies and half of you support the gays!!!

    Go back to eating the flesh of Jesus you deviant demon!

  10. Chrisitanity is a slave idolatrous religion. Much origination comes from Greece “baby jesus” pedophiles to Europeans who were hell bent on worshipping an idol.

    It is unnatural as it is deviates from Jewish/Talmudic/African scriptures and steals countless quotes of wisdom from its ancestors.

    The Black Man is God…..not some God’s son/idol/arab/pale-face image from the sky.

    The only way we can truly win is to drive the Demon DemiUrge of Christianity into the seas of the abyss.

    In this world and the next I eagerly relish your destruction.

  11. Trevo Craw says:

    To James Davis
    I would speak to you by phone and prove you wrong a dozen times over but you cannot hear nor can you see. Thus it would be a waste of time. Try self abortion. And leave the Bible out of it.

  12. Trevo Craw says:

    To James Final,

    You would actually be dumb enough and have the nerve to use the Bible to promote that a woman has the Biblical right to kill an innocent unborn life that God created? How dumb are you? How do you walk and breath at the same time? You have No understanding of scripture.

  13. Trevo Craw says:

    To James again,

    You are so off. Talk to Norma McCorvey who was Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade. She realizes she was wrong and that she was used for the agenda of others. I suggest you study about population control and Eugenics. And maybe your mom should have had an abortion when she got pregnant with you. If she thought backwards like you, should probably would have.

    God creates life, God defines life and while we have free will, God tells us how His children choose. You are really lost

  14. Trevo Craw says:

    God creates life in the womb. It is not the woman’s right to take the life God creates. It is a shame that I have to explain that to some of you because it shows you don’t understand who decides about life. And I dare you cowards to sit through an abortion, look at the unborn innocent child ripped into pieces then say that is anybody’s right to do that to a child. If you can still say that after sitting through an abortion and looking at the results, YOU HAVE NO SOUL!

  15. Trevo Craw says:

    To James,

    You really are lost. You misapply the scriptures. Too many errors to list here because it would take me all day. Each person has the right of choice but God then says CHOOSE LIFE. Like your formula, the foolish and ungodly people chose incorrectly.

    AMERICAN HAS LOST ITS MORALITY

    America has gotten so warped, lost, deceived and immoral that there is actually a debate over whether a woman has the right to kill an unborn child or not.

    America has gotten so twisted and confused that men think changing out parts make them women, women think the same and people think they can change their gender by feeling like another gender.

    America has gotten so much like Sodom and Gomorrah that people cannot see the sin of LGBTQ and they instead make excuses for their confusion. They call the truth “hate speech” and our churches preach tolerance of these abominations. Then when people who understand what God’s word says actually speak out, we are made the bad guys and ladies.

    Nobody is perfect but we need to stop making excuses for sin. In God we trust? Really? Wake up people before God does to America what He did to Sodom and Gomorrah. Pastors won’t speak the truth because they don’t want to lose members who pay for their jets and mansions. Awful.

    Politicians will say anything or flip flop and sell their souls for votes. And the Devil is collecting a ton of them. Shame on everything politician who will trade his or her soul and morality.

    THE BIBLICAL TRUTH IS NOT HATE SPEECH!!!
    And many of you backwards lost people are the same type people who nailed Christ to the cross.

    You don’t hardly see them anymore, those shotgun shanty houses built of substandard pieces of pine wood in poor black communities in the south. These were places where the echoes of women, and girls talking, and arguing can be heard by the next door neighbors. Next door a young girl is arguing with her mamma.The young teen aged girl was pregnant with a baby that she didn’t want. She and her boyfriend didn’t want the baby after thinking about how raising the child would negatively affect their lives, but her mamma wants her to have it. Her mamma is being brutal with her words after finding out that the young girl, and her boyfriend raised the money, and paid a woman across town to use a metal coat hanger to abort the fetus.Many African American women have been in this place before. They were forced to use primitive, crude, unsanitary, and dangerous methods of abortion using both home made instruments, and chemicals.These conditions are where some voters in America want women to return.They want to use religion, and capitalist utilitarianism to drive abortion underground. Women should fight hard to keep abortion legal in all states of the union.

  19. Pelvo White, Jr. says:

    These insights have all been quite interesting, but I don’t believe that God’s will requires cosigning by man nor can be prevented by man.Controlling the reproductive organs of a man, and a woman by law is born out of world theologies, and political structures that allow these religious existences, but I think that the clearest explanations of God’s processes of birth and decay are explained in the book of Genesis, and by King Solomon in the book of Ecclesiastes in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. We grow, in our mother’s wombs, are then born into the world,are juveniles,young adults,middle aged adults,old adults, and then death.This cycle of birth and decay has gone on for centuries. Concepts like ” sin ” exist only in the minds of theologians. Although we exercise a degree of freedom of thought and actions we are not outside of God’s overall control. If you think that you are, see how long you can hold your breath before you must breathe again. I think that the issue of abortion is strictly between God and the woman desiring to abort not the courts of the land.

  20. James Davis says:

    To Mr. Craw and Mr. Ellis:

    The Holy Bible clearly and unambiguously states, when it comes to a woman’s right to choose, whether she will indulge in sin or follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the scriptures do not differentiate, in regard to men or women. The scriptures apply to both, men and women. Go to the texts of the verses above, and see for yourself. The verses do not say, only men have the right to choose!

    You say that the Lord our God, in some manner, has taken away the right to choose from women, whether they indulge in sin or follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. And that, is just not true. There is no scripture in the Holy Bible that supports, that notion. The verses do not exist. The simple point, being made here, is that women, just like men, according to the Bible, have the same right, as men, as to whether they choose to indulge in sin.

    NOW, IT IS BINDING UPON YOU BOTH – SHOW THE READERS OF THIS PIECE, AND INDEED MYSELF THE SCRIPTURE OR VERSE, IF YOU CAN, WHERE IT CLEARLY STATES THAT WOMEN DO
    NOT HAVE THIS RIGHT!

    Roe v. Wade, the decision by the Supreme Court, simply gives women the right to choose, whether they will follow God’s edict, when it comes to the issue of abortion. That’s no different, then you as a person having the choice to sin or not to sin. However, God tells everyone, if you make the choice, that is not in keeping with His commandments, you can expect to suffer consequences for your sinful behavior.

    The current Republican Party, and hypocritical Evangelicals have advanced a misinformation campaign, when it comes to the scripture of the Holy Bible and a woman’s right to choose, when it comes to her body, in order to get GULLIBLE voters to vote for Republican candidates ONLY, because of this one issue.

    Again, SHOW THE READERS OF THIS PIECE, AND INDEED MYSELF THE SCRIPTURE OR VERSE, IF YOU CAN, WHERE IT CLEARLY STATES THAT WOMEN DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO SERVE THE LORD.

    Here’s the thing: I understand the pro-choice position which seeks to first deny this particular stage of development its humanity by whatever arbitrary criteria. An abortion is the same as a haircut or appendectomy by that P.O.V. All of that has its own logical issues, but we’ll leave that be.
    What I do not understand is when a person thinks, believes or knows abortion to be wrong and yet still supports choice. If abortion is wrong, why is it wrong? It is wrong because an innocent human is losing their life. INTENTIONALLY taking a specific life that is innocent of crime is the definition of murder. You have a responsibility to AT THE VERY LEAST not support the conditions for murder to occur. So what you are saying is that you believe a human is losing their life or even MAY be losing their life, but you cannot be bothered to assist or care and that no laws should interfere with the taking of this life. That mushiness speaks volumes toward the character of those holding that view.
    I remember when Bill Clinton espoused that same view in 92. I was pro-choice back then and I thought, “what a pansy! Only a politician can say that garbage with a straight face.” Now that I am older and wiser, I know better: it’s not just politicians.
    The author used the word “fetus”. Fetus is just a label for a stage in human development rhetorically intended to dehumanize the victim. A fetus isn’t a nonhuman “thing”. Are a fetal elephant and fetal human the same thing? It’s a stage. Every human reading this passed through a fetal stage. When did they stop being a fetus and become a human? It’s a false question. You can easily replace that arbitrary label with “elder,” “toddler,” “adolescent,” “adult,” or any other label you wish to declare nonhuman.

    Why Don’t Unborn “Black” Lives Matter?

    Recently in Georgia the state government passed House Bill 481 which states that a woman in Georgia cannot receive an abortion once the heartbeat of the unborn child can be detected. That can be as early as 6 weeks into the pregnancy. Bravo Georgia, bravo. And while a bunch of irresponsible women (and men) are outraged at House Bill 481 because they want to penalize an unborn child for their “mistakes”, lust and indiscretions, they have no problem with using murder to selfishly escape accountability for their own actions. But there is an even darker side to this issue that the African-American community needs to wake up to.

    In this decade abortion kills more African-Americans in this country than police brutality, black on black crime, AIDS, Cancer and war combined. And Black Lives Matter is strangely silent – no marches, rallies and protests for the killing of our own by our own. Hypocrisy, self-inflicted eugenic genocide, irresponsibility, lack of accountability and selfishness have all reached a new low. Where are you NAACP? Where are you SCLC? Where are you 100 Black Men? Where are you 100 Black Women? Where are you children of Martin Luther King Jr.? Mostly silent, absent and on the wrong side of the issue.

    AN UNBORN BABY IS NOT THE WOMAN’S BODY – IT HAS ITS OWN

    The most selfish, immoral, ungodly, irresponsible thing any man or woman can do is to punish someone else for what you/he/she/they did – especially a helpless and innocent life. Abortion kills a child, pure and simple, usually for the convenience of the mother, father or both. So now death is based on convenience? That is both sick and sad. Then there are the labels to make murder easier to swallow. The fact that the pregnant women, doctors and pro death choice groups refer to an unborn human with a heartbeat as a lump of tissue or a fetus indicates they don’t even have the courage to accurately name the life they are taking.

    To the women who support abortion, have abortions to cover their tracks or avert their responsibilities, three points of unfair double standards come to mind. The first is that men are told to “man up” and take care of our children. So why aren’t women told to “women up” and have their babies instead of killing them? The second point is that men are told “you should not have gotten her pregnant if you were not willing to step up”. So why aren’t women being told “you should not have gotten pregnant if you did not want to have a child”?

    ABORTION MAY BE FEDERAL LAW OF THE LAND BUT SO WAS SLAVERY
    AND STATES HAVE THEIR OWN LAWS JUST LIKE AMERICA DOES

    Third, what are you aborting? Finish the sentence ladies. I dare you to have the courage to say “I am having an unborn child torn apart and killed in my womb because of my own preferences and selfish reasons”. If you are going to do something and you believe it is the right thing to do, why not be honest about what you are doing and call it exactly what it is? In fact I dare any woman who so casually chooses an abortion to watch a video of even one abortion taking place. I am a man but I have seen it on video and there is no denying what is happening once you see it.

    THE ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD “FETUS”, according to the Online Etymology Dictionary:

    “the young while in the womb or egg”, from Latin fetus “the bearing or hatching of young, a bringing forth, pregnancy, childbearing, offspring”.

    Hmmm. To the women who support abortion, it is hypocritical and inconsistent for you to want the law and the courts on your side while at the same time wanting the law and the courts not to tell you what to do with your body. Which is it? Do you want the courts to tell you go ahead and have your abortions or do you want the courts to tell you the opposite? Either way you want the law and the courts to say what should happen. That is hypocrisy.

    Ironically neither a woman nor a man in America can do whatever you want with your own body. And it is a bogus argument to say that you can. Prostitution using YOUR body is illegal. Suicide using YOUR own body is illegal. Even attempted suicide is illegal. Drug use and abuse on YOUR own body is illegal. Urinating or exposing YOUR own body in public is illegal.

    If a mother has the right to life, why doesn’t the unborn child? Many selfish and irresponsible women will say “it’s my body”. But they refuse to acknowledge the obvious. The unborn child is NOT her body. The unborn child has its own body. And the hypocrisy is that the woman wants to do whatever she desires with the unborn child’s body – an authority she does not have by law days, weeks or months later. A complete authority she certainly does not have after the child is born.

    Abortion teaching the easy way out and lack of responsibility. Those who support abortion (pro-death) are teaching children not to be responsible for their actions, but rather to take the easy and cowardly way out. This does not teach there are consequences for our irresponsible behaviors. Instead abortion teaches that death is based on one-sided preference and convenience. And pro-death supporters are using labels and excuses that hide the truth of what the mother is actually doing. Let’s get real.

    Abortion supporters believe the mother should have the right to makes choices of life and death that will impact the unborn child, the father, the entire family, the community and African-Americans as a people. The inconsistency is sickening. If a baby is in the womb, in many places in America he or she is given no right to life. But a month later he is given that right while still in the same womb. And if he is removed from the womb alive one day later, presto he is given even more rights. In such cases the woman is not authorized to determine what life is anymore. And if we really think hard about it, where does any woman think she has received the authority to determine where life begins and when it should end? Playing God? Yep. But who authorized that?

    Abortion is sexist discrimination against men all the way. Why? Because the man is given little or no say about the birth in many cases. Yet it was just as much his sperm as it was her egg which together caused the conception in the first place. Yes the woman must carry the child by herself. But she did not conceive by herself. And if the child is born (not murdered), the same man restricted from decisions while the child i in the womb is then forced to follow state and federal guidelines involving the child. Since the man will be forced to be responsible (as he should choose to anyway), why shouldn’t he have some say in the matter? Again the child is just as much the man’s sperm as it is the woman’s egg.

    In cases of rape, sexual abuse or the endangerment of the life of the mother I understand the argument for abortion. But those cases do not represent the majority of abortions – not at all. In cases where the mother’s health (not life) is at risk, that is no excuse for abortion. Why not? Because any pregnancy and birth is a risk to any expectant mother. She can develop diabetes, get sick or even worse. But if the standard for giving birth includes no risk of health to the mother, we might as well stop all women from giving birth period. And the medical industry does not need to scapegoat the problem of women’s health during pregnancy or birth when the medical industry is clearly advanced enough to help her out without killing an unborn child. So to the medical industry I say stop taking the easy, convenient and cowardly way out. You can do better and you know it.

    Abortion says a lot about the woman and the man who supports or encourages it.

    What does it say about a woman who wants to discard a helpless unborn child in the trash like he or she is nothing? Like he or she has no value. Like he or she is inconvenient tissue? And what does it say about a weak, cowardly, irresponsible man who encourages it? How would the man and the woman like to be treated that way? It says somebody is selfish. It says somebody is irresponsible. it says somebody wants an innocent unborn life to be taken because of the horny actions of the girl, woman, boy or man.

    So the woman who wants an abortion says it’s her body? But that is not true either because the unborn child has its own separate body. Dependent on the mother? Yes, but so is he once he is born. No excuses irresponsible, heartless women out there.

    To The Author,

    As a Bible scholar, teacher and published author, I have to say this is one of the poorest articles I have ever read. You took an issue as scientifically obvious as life and ignorantly made it about partisanship. You neglected to say that Norma who was Jane Roe was not only used as pawn for the agenda of others. but you also left out that she is Pro-life.

    You set up strawman arguments throughout your article then you use the misapplication and your lack of understanding of the scriptures to try and shoot the fake arguments down that you made. You may fool some people but you are really justifying your pro-death abortion position. Maybe your mother should have thought like you but if she did, you would not be here to write anything.

    Your pro-death position fails to acknowledge so many facts. It is not just the woman’s body. The unborn child has hiss or her body. Women (nor men) can do what we wish with our bodies under the law. Thus prostitution, illicit drug use and suicide are all illegal. You neglect to talk about obeying the law of the land and that includes laws made by the states, not just federal Roe vs Wade.

    You don’t cover how Margaret Sanger was a racist into population control (Eugenics) and wanted black people exterminated. You don’t cover how she put planned parenthood into the black community to do just that.

    Your theological “proof” is very weak because your starting premises are all wrong. You overlook the obvious. It is God who sets forth life and death. And it is God who defines life and death (of any and all types).

    You go off on tangents, squeezing scriptures to try and make them fit where they do not apply. And it is obvious that you are using them to push your beliefs and preference instead of letting them shape your beliefs. The Bible is not your hostage. be careful how you are using it. beware.

    You say abortion is a sin and you got that part correct so don’t argue against yourself. You jump around in this article from sociological to political to the Bible, not knowing what goes with what and what fits where.

    I suggest you look up what the latin word “fetus” means. Maybe you will understand how people change the names when they know calling it what it is will wake people up. I could go paragraph by paragraph in your article pointing out how lost, confused and/or misguided this article is.

    Beware of misleading people.
