Abortion Against the Handiwork of God

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well."  Psalm 139:13-14

Over 80% of abortions performed in the United States use a procedure called dilation and evacuation.  In this procedure, the doctor uses a clamp to dismember the baby while still inside the mother's womb.  The doctor then proceeds to remove the body parts one-by-one until the entire child has been removed from the mother.  Here is a link to a detailed and graphic description of the dilation and evacuation procedure by a former abortion doctor. 

Christians must understand that the dismemberment of a human baby inside the mother's womb is a matter rebellion against the God of life.  The scriptures teach that God himself knits the child together in the womb of the mother.  The physician who crushes the bones of the unborn is undoing the work of God's own hand.  Those little legs and arms are attached to a little torso that contains a little rib cage protecting a pair of little lungs and a tiny beating heart which sends blood to the baby's head containing the baby's brain, and this is the work of God.  Those who would advocate for the destruction of this little life declare that God does not know what he is doing and that his handiwork is disposable medical waste. 

May he have mercy upon us and restore justice to our land.
