Ancient Abortion Carving

LCG recently put together the following world news item:

Record Rates of British Abortions. This past year, more than 3,000 “late term” abortions were performed in Britain—a 44 percent increase in the last 10 years. Late-term abortions are performed during or after the 20th week of pregnancy—well into the 2nd term. One-third of women seeking late-term abortions last year had already had a previous abortion. Additionally, the most likely age for a mother to have an abortion performed was 19 (The Sunday Telegraph, March 9, 2008). God warned Israel of impending judgment because of their hedonistic behavior… “and I pronounced them unclean because of their ritual gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire, that I might make them desolate and that they might know that I am the LORD…. Are you defiling yourselves in the manner of your fathers, and committing harlotry according to their abominations?” (Ezekiel 20:26, 30). Today’s society lusts and follows after detestable things. It calls evil good and good evil and endorses a woman’s “right to choose” to terminate her own child’s life. Nations that have led the world in greatness are now leading the world in sin. But the time is coming when Christ will return, and sinful nations will repent of their sinful ways, and God will once again pour out His blessings on them (Zephaniah 3:20). 

It is sad that abortion is used at all.  It is also sad that abortion seems to be acceptable to more and more in the world today. 

Of course, promiscuity has been increasing in the “Protestant” countries (see, for example the news item New Zealand Promiscuity).  And promiscuity and other sins lead to increased tendencies for even more sins, such as abortion.

Also notice this news item also put together by LCG:

More Than 25 Percent of American Teen Girls Carry STDs. Only about half of teenage girls surveyed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention [CDC] say that they have not had sex. Of those who have had sex, about half are infected with at least one sexually transmitted disease (Reuters, March 11, 2008). Twenty-six percent of girls age 14-19 reported having an STD; 15 percent of those infected have more than one STD. Twenty percent of those reporting just one sexual experience had at least one STD, according to Dr. John Douglas, director of the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention. “Therefore, any given sex act with any given partner, a person who’s not infected has a greater risk of coming into contact with infection and getting infected.”  The actual STD rate may be even higher than reported, as the study did not survey syphilis, gonorrhea or HIV infection.  Infections found in the study included Chlamydia (which damages female reproductive organs), Trichomoniasis (caused by a parasite) and genital herpes. God wants us to teach His children, “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints…. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them” (Ephesians 5:3-7).

So 1/2 of sexually active teens in the USA have an STD.   

As far as a woman’s right to choose, the following article may be of interest, appropriately titled Abortion, the Bible, and a Woman’s Right to Choose.
