The definition of abortion=an operation or process to end a pregnancy deliberately
Abortions, even so called ‘natural’ abortions, don’t happen just by accident, an abortion is a deliberate end to a pregnancy.
A Pregnancy means to carry a foetus in the womb
Although there are such things as ectopic pregnancies which are rare, an egg which has been fertilised has a human sperm, has a human RIGHT to embed itself in the wall of its mother’s womb. ANY methods which stop this occuring are wrong and these include the morning after pill and the coil, marketed cleverly as solutions to ‘accidents’ and women don’t realise what they really are.
Some argue that certain contraceptives which stop a foetus embedding in the wall of the womb (by making the womb wall too thin or ‘hostile’ for the embryo) aren’t a form of abortion because the foetus hasn’t embedded yet. If you think of this argument logically it doesn’t make sense as the embedding is a matter of time. The abortion still takes place as if there is a living embryo, it can’t embed in the womb wall and is expelled and therefore dies outside the womb.
I also wish to point out to highlight the remarkable findings in recent years of the pioneering doctor, Dr Stuart Campbell and his 4D foetal scans.
From these amazing 4D scans scientists have discovered that:
- From 12 weeks, unborn babies can stretch, kick and leap around the womb – well before the mother can ‘feel’ their aerobics!
- From 18 weeks, unborn babies can open their eyes (previously this was thought of as being at 24 weeks)
- From 26 weeks old unborn babies show a range of movement typical of baby behaviour and moods, including scratching, smiling, crying, hiccuping, and sucking. This is particularly interesting because smiles (showing signs of affection) were considered to start after six weeks of birth, not months before birth!
With regard to abortion we can agree with the words of GK Chesterton: “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.” Abortion is ‘fashionable’ but it was also ‘fashionable’ to own a slave once and ‘fashionable’ to kill Jews if you were a Nazi, does that make these right? Of course not.
Questions need to be asked and the truth needs to be told.
