Abortion Lies

“You won’t die! God doesn’t want you to eat the fruit because when you do, you’ll be like him.”
“Her? No, she’s not my wife, she’s my sister. Sarah, come on over and meet these good Egyptians.”
“Yeah, I know what God told you, but I am a prophet, too. He told me to tell you to come to my house in Bethel and eat supper with me.”
“Look, we sold our land and here is all the money from that sale. Every bit of it.”
“Tell me what makes you so strong, Samson. I love you, but you’re making fun of me.”

Did you recognize those statements as lies from Bible history? Each of those lies had real potential to harm either the liar or the one believing the lie. Adam and Eve were banished from the garden because they believed Satan’s lie. The young prophet who believed the lie of the old prophet was killed by a lion on his way home. Ananias and Saphira were immediately struck dead because of their lie concerning the money for the sale of their land. Samson was captured because he believed Delilah’s lie when she said, “I love you.” The only lie mentioned above was Abraham’s lie that Sarah was not his wife. The only reason that was remedied is because God stepped into the picture to keep Pharaoh from sleeping with her.

“This type of late-term abortion is performed rarely and only to save a mother’s life or to abort malformed fetuses.” That was a lie, too. It was told by Ron Fitzsimmons and the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League according to the Cleveland Daily Banner of February 27, 1997. What has been the result of this lie? Thousands of babies since then, having been partially delivered, have had their brains sucked out of their heads. These babies had actually come part way through the birth canal - they were seconds from seeing the faces of their mothers - and they were killed.
Congress passed a bill to ban the procedure in 1997. President Clinton vetoed the bill, then Congress failed to override the veto. Why did President Clinton veto the bill? He explained that it was because the procedure was used on a few hundred women per year whose babies would be born with terrible deformities. He believed a lie. Why wouldn’t enough Congressmen vote to override the veto? Because they believed a lie. It was not a few hundred, it was a few thousand. It was not just on women whose babies were terribly deformed, many of the babies were perfectly healthy. Fitzsimmons admitted that he lied.
I’m so glad that Congress has passed the ban again, and that it will, no doubt, be signed by President Bush. Consider, whether these might be more lies told by pro-abortionists and believed by a nation ready to be deceived.
“The phrase sanctity of life has no meaning. Life is not sacred.”
“It’s not God’s body. It’s your body and you can do whatever you want with it.”
“Your should have the right to do whatever makes you happy regardless of its effect on the child in your womb.”
Dangerous lies, destined to bring harm. Please don’t believe them!
