“Oh, Come Let us Abort Him!”
By John W. Lillpop
The Christmas story is truly the most remarkable and beautiful story ever told.
The fact that an omnipotent Creator would deliver His plan of salvation for humanity through an innocent child wrapped in swaddling clothes is both moving and telling.
After all, He could have used the enormous forces of nature to draw attention to his dissatisfaction with the spiritual shortfall of the species created in His image. A major flood, a devastating string of earthquakes, violent storms and other calamities could have been visited upon the earth and it’s sinful inhabitants.
Instead, He chose to deliver His message of hope and eternal life through a human instrument, in the form of the baby Jesus. The world has never been the same since that Christmas Eve more than 2,000 years ago.
Paradoxically, while the Creator honored humanity with the presence of a child in order to offer eternal life, despicable men and women have decided that some human life is of no more consequence than rancid animal waste.
This willful and arrogant denial of God’s greatest gift—human life—reached it’s most contemptible apex on January 23, 1973, when the United States Supreme Court ruled, in a 7-2 decision, that abortion was a fundamental right bestowed by the United States Constitution.
How strange that the U.S. Constitution, which was crafted by God-fearing men of faith, would be distorted and misrepresented so completely by the most capable and intellectually gifted men of the times.
Following the death sentence imposed on the unborn in 1973, more than 47 million innocent fetuses have been destroyed. Abortions are justified with a variety of reasons: The inconvenience of a pregnancy is the least moral reason for ending a human life through abortion. In situations where a woman has been a victim of rape or incest, more plausible and reasonable justifications are applied.
Regardless of the justification, the fact is that 47 million human spirits have been destroyed through human, rather than divine, intervention.
Which means that the classic Christmas carol titled “Come, Let Us Adore Him,” has literally been changed to “Come, Let Us Abort Him.”
Oh, and by the way, Merry Christmas!
