God is the giver of life and forgiver

by Carol Clemans –

 

Since Roe vs. Wade, we’ve had over 50 million babies murdered from their mothers’ wombs.  That means we’ve had over 50 million ‘mothers to be’ who have had to live with the haunting memories of the abortion.

 

God is the giver of all life starting at the time of conception. God is also a forgiver of sin. He came to earth in a ‘robe of flesh’ and became the supreme sacrifice for our sins on the cross over 2,000 years ago.

 

Mothers, who have had an abortion, or maybe more than one, carry heavy guilt.  They have told me so.  Many feel great sadness on the anniversary day every year of their aborted baby.  The most sorrowful mother is the one who aborted a baby in her young years. Now she is married and wants children but because of health problems in her reproductive system caused by the abortion, she cannot get pregnant.

 

This is the ‘dark side’ of abortion that no one tells the pregnant mothers who go to Planned Parenthood. I’ve never had a mother who aborted a baby say they were happy they had an abortion.  It’s impossible to celebrate the murder of a baby.

 

For mothers who have genuine regret for having an abortion need to understand that God forgives all sin.  When we come to God with genuine repentance, He is faithful and just to forgive sin. 

 

Peter tells us how to be saved in the book of Acts. It is the history of the New Testament church that started over 2,000 years ago on the Day of Pentecost. God desires a repentant heart. HE says, “Go and sin no more.”

 

Your enemy, Satan, wants you to believe the lie that God will not forgive. The devil wants everyone to go to hell with him. I’ve read the end of THE BOOK. God has already won total victory over death, hell and the grave. Don’t be a loser with Satan.

 

God is love. He loves the sinner, not the sin.  God came to earth to give us abundant life and a hope of eternal life with Him. God wants to heal your broken repentant heart and have a close relationship with you.  He is the giver of life and the forgiver of our sins.

    Thank you for this beautiful article….you show the very nature of God ….mercy. I wrote a poem I would love to post on a bulletin board at all the abortion clinics. I can’t imagine the pain these women go through…but I know there is a forgiving God and appreciate your ministry in offering healing for each one of them.

    YOU WERE INSIDE ME…….BUT ONLY FOR A WHILE
    ONLY IN MY DREAMS…DO I EMBRACE YOUR SMILE
    IN MY THOUGHTS I SEE YOU….MY BLEEDING HEART IS TORN
    FOR MY DARLING LITTLE BABY WHO COULD NEVER BE BORN.
    THOUGH MY ARMS ACHE TO HOLD YOU AND MY PAIN SO
    HARD TO BEAR…THE PAIN YOU MUST HAVE FELT THAT DAY
    MY PAIN CANNOT COMPARE
    IF I COULD LIVE MY LIFE AGAIN….THERE WOULD BE ONE
    LESS REGRET…THE DAY I TOOK MY BABIES LIFE….
    THE DAY I CAN’T FORGET.

  • DEAR CAROL CLEMANS:

    It’s really none of your business. Personally I am pro-choice for the following reasons:

    1: I believe most Americans recognize that there is a moral and ethical distinction to be made between the termination of a pregnancy and the wanton killing of a living, breathing human being.

    2: I believe most Americans know that while a woman’s fertilized egg or blastocyst is genetically “human,” the resemblance to a person ends there.

    3: The vast majority of abortions take place within the first trimester of pregnancy, and most American still prefer that women still have that option.

    4: The most emotional arguments against abortion hinge on religious beliefs: That a human pregnancy is somehow “sacred” or that a fertilized egg is imbued with some kind of “soul” or other supernatural characteristic. Since such religious beliefs vary widely from person to person, all I can suggest is that pro-lifers are welcome to conduct their own reproductive lives as their conscience and religious beliefs dictate. They have absolutely NO right to demand that others do the same.

    5: I consider a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy absolutely FUNDAMENTAL to her right to self-determination. PERIOD.

    Thank you, Carol Clemens. May I correct an error made by one of your detractors?
    It is your business.

    I know most Americans do not see a clear distinction between killing a fetus with a beating heart and active nervous system – a human being living and “breathing” in amniotic fluid (about the 12th week), and with-holding food and water from a terminally ill octogenarian, a human being living and breathing in a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere.

    I know that what distinguishes a “human” is not the physical appearance. What a coarse, ignorant way to determine a person’s value. By that logic, it shouldn’t be as tragic when a double amputee is murdered as when someone with all limbs still attached is murdered. Or when a very small person is murdered, the resemblance being “slight”, it shouldn’t be as terrible as when a very large person is murdered. Your detractor’s concept of what it is to be a “person” is grossly materialistic, superficial and simplistic.

    I’m afraid I disagree that the timing of a murder ameliorates the crime, sin, travesty. Whenever a person is killed – in the first trimester or in the first three post-natal months – it is a tragedy. And, sadly, the tragedy expands as post-natal “abortions” continue to increase in number, having nothing to do with “the mother’s health”.

    “…most American still prefer that women still have that option.” I admit I do not know if that statement is true. I do know, however, that many if not most early 20th century Europeans preferred that Jews would leave their communities in peace, and many if not most 19th century Americans seemed to think that race slavery was a viable option. So why rock the boat? Maybe because the boat is going in the wrong direction.

    Emotions are valid, and religious beliefs have saved more lives than irreligious beliefs have saved. Emotional values should not be discounted – and are not, except by the callous. Religious beliefs should not be discounted – but must be in order for universal values to be ridiculed and rejected.

    Finally, the issue is not about “reproductive lives”. What is that anyway – sexual intercourse – is that what is meant? The issue is the wanton killing of the unborn and by extension the murder of the recent-born. If “reproductive lives” were conducted responsibly and intelligently, with forethought and even a moderate degree of human compassion, then the subject you have raised – 50 million slaughtered, only a fraction of a percentage for the sake of “saving the mother’s life” – would never have been born.

    This is such an important issue that absolutely NO one has the right to demand that you sew your lips shut, avert your eyes, and allow it to continue. If killers want to keep killing they are welcome to conduct their materialistic lives as their lack of conscience and irreligious beliefs dictate. They have absolutely no right to demand that others stand silently by while they continue their promotion of inhumane mass murder.

    I consider a baby’s right to be born absolutely fundamental to its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
    I consider a woman’s right to self-determination an integral part of determining when or whether to have children.

    But killing a child simply because you don’t want it is totally inexcusable. EXCLAMATION MARK.

    Thank you for your frankness and unapologetic boldness, Carol Clemans, for addressing this controversial topic.

    Abortion is murder. It is forcing the end of a life. I was surprised to discover that abortions were no longer just for desperate unwed mothers or rape victims but that abortions are now conducted for healthy married women who are just selfish. And now children are being killed right after they are born! 89% of children diagnosed with down syndrome are murdered in the womb! 40% of African American pregnancies end in abortion! Fathers have no choice about the murder of their own children! When I had my son, I felt like a little piece of my soul became part of his. When you murder your child, you are murdering a piece of yourself.

    It is a contradiction that abortion is only supported by those who were born themselves. Are you saying that another life is less precious than yours? What gives you the right? Whether it is your child or someone else’s, how do you measure the value of a human life and conclude that you deserved a chance but another doesn’t?How do you explain to your children that you have later that you killed their brother/sister? If you are repentant of having an abortion, then I thank God that you had a revelation of the sanctity of life in every stage. I hope that you use that revelation to save the lives of the next generation.

    I appreciate articles like this that stand for what is right instead of what is politically correct. Politically correct is not spelled B-I-B-L-E
