“I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.” – Psalm 22:10
“See, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” –Psalm 127:3
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” – Psalm 139:13-14
“Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?” – Job 31:15
“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;” – Isaiah 44:24
There were women’s marches across the world recently, and many were marching for the choice to kill their unborn babies. I still don’t know how anyone can justify such an evil act. To me, this goes beyond politics. It is a human rights issue.
In my experience praying for deliverance, I have come across women who had an abortion, and they felt their bodies turn cold, which can be associated with the spirit of death. By shedding innocent blood, they may have opened themselves to the enemy.
Frank Hammond dealt with the spirit of death as well. He remarked that a woman herself didn’t have an abortion, but received a spirit for merely agreeing with a woman having an abortion!
The late Pastor Derek Prince revealed that in his experience, abortion is associated with the spirit of murder:
If you were involved with an abortion, Jesus Christ could forgive you. God can forgive even the worst of sinners. God is faithful and just to forgive when the sins are confessed to Him. May Jesus heal you and restore you.
Satan wants people to dehumanize others because we are made in the image of God.
“And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” – Jeremiah 32:35
The ancient Israelites practiced child sacrifice unto the false god molech. According to statistics, most abortions in the U.S. are done for the sake of convenience. Essentially, people are sacrificing their unborn babies to the god of self. Whether it is the god of molech or god of self, they are still false gods.
If you know Jesus Christ, trust Him to provide for you and help you if you have had an unexpected pregnancy.
The Early Church on Abortion
74 AD The Letter of Barnabas “The way of light, then, is as follows. If any one desires to travel to the appointed place, he must be zealous in his works. The knowledge, therefore, which is given to us for the purpose of walking in this way, is the following. . . . Thou shalt not slay the child by procuring abortion; nor, again, shalt thou destroy it after it is born” (Letter of Barnabas 19).
150 AD Didache “The second commandment of the teaching: You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not seduce boys. You shall not commit fornication. You shall not steal. You shall not practice magic. You shall not use potions. You shall not procure [an] abortion, nor destroy a newborn child” (Didache 2:1)
150 – 270 AD Minucius Felix “There are some [pagan] women who, by drinking medical preparations, extinguish the source of the future man in their very bowels and thus commit a parricide before they bring forth. And these things assuredly come down from the teaching of your [false] gods. . . . To us [Christians] it is not lawful either to see or hear of homicide” (Octavius chap. 30)
177 AD Athenagoras “What man of sound mind, therefore, will affirm, while such is our character, that we are murderers? . . . [W]hen we say that those women who use drugs to bring on abortion commit murder, and will have to give an account to God for the abortion, on what principle should we commit murder? For it does not belong to the same person to regard the very fetus in the womb as a created being, and therefore an object of God’s care, and when it has passed into life, to kill it; and not to expose an infant, because those who expose them are chargeable with child-murder, and on the other hand, when it has been reared to destroy it” (A Plea for the Christians 35, Embassy chap. 5).
177 AD Athenagoras, “What reason would we have to commit murder when we say that women who induce abortions are murderers, and will have to give account of it to God? For the same person would not regard the fetus in the womb as a living thing and therefore an object of God’s care, and at the same time slay it, once it had come to life.” (Athenagoras Plea, ch.35)
210 AD Tertullian “Among surgeons’ tools there is a certain instrument, which is formed with a nicely-adjusted flexible frame for opening the uterus first of all and keeping it open; it is further furnished with an annular blade, by means of which the limbs [of the child] within the womb are dissected with anxious but unfaltering care; its last appendage being a blunted or covered hook, wherewith the entire fetus is extracted by a violent delivery. “There is also [another instrument in the shape of] a copper needle or spike, by which the actual death is managed in this furtive robbery of life: They give it, from its infanticide function, the name of embruosphaktes, [meaning] “the slayer of the infant,” which of course was alive. . . .” [The doctors who performed abortions] all knew well enough that a living being had been conceived, and [they] pitied this most luckless infant state, which had first to be put to death, to escape being tortured alive” (The Soul 25).
210 AD Tertullian “In our case, a murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the fetus in the womb, while as yet the human being derives blood from the other parts of the body for its sustenance. To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in its seed” (Apology 9:8).
210 AD Tertullian “Now we allow that life begins with conception because we contend that the soul also begins from conception; life taking its commencement at the same moment and place that the soul does” (Apology 27).
210 AD Tertullian “The law of Moses, indeed, punishes with due penalties the man who shall cause abortion [Ex. 21:22] inasmuch as there exists already the rudiment of a human being,…” (The Soul).
228 AD Hippolytus “Women who were reputed to be believers began to take drugs to render themselves sterile, and to bind themselves tightly so as to expel what was being conceived, since they would not, on account of relatives and excess wealth, want to have a child by a slave or by any insignificant person. See, then, into what great impiety that lawless one has proceeded, by teaching adultery and murder at the same time!” (Refutation of All Heresies).
250 AD Diognetus (a likely reference to both exposure of infants to die and abortion): “(Christians) marry, like everyone else, and they beget children, but they do not cast out their offspring.” (Letter of Diognetus (late 2nd or 3rd century; ch.5, vs.6)
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
