about Pregnancy Interruption?
It is never, ever, too late - Even
after the fact!
There is Hope!
Without wallowing into recriminations and drowning ourselves in
statistics let us look
at how the interruption of a pregnancy impacts us individually and our
society as a whole, and how,
empowered by the
Infinite Mercy of God, we may
start anew no matter what our past
transgressions may have been.
Understanding the Impact of the Act
We must first understand the impact upon society before we can access
the way to peace
of mind and soul. [The following line of reasoning is based on
our belief of a Supreme
Being, A Creator - God.]
1. If there is a pregnancy it is
because God allowed it, thus, there is a human being
2. This human being, upon full
development, will have a real impact on society;
otherwise God would not have created him or her. [He may be a
baker, a brilliant
politician, an ordinary man, a murderer, a brilliant physician, etc.]
3. If that pregnancy is terminated,
that particular future individual and all his
potential capabilities will never become manifested in this world.
Thus, unbeknownst to us, when that pregnancy is
terminated we will all lose
some ultimate benefit in our journey through life,
not to mention committing a grave offense before the Eyes of God.
What if that individual was to be a great researcher who would find a
way to end cancer
(which is better than a cure to cancer); Alzheimer's; or Parkinson's;
etc.? Even murder someone who was going to cause
the world in general, or you in particular, much suffering. [God
will use the sin
committed by one of us for the benefit of another - nothing is wasted
in Creation, yet, we are all accountable for our
sins before God just as Judas was.]
What if she was going to be the greatest world leader mankind had ever
seen or that
unobtrusive next door neighbor who was destined to be, one day, the one
who prevented the suicide of her despairing
What would have happened if the birth of Abraham had been aborted?
Alexander Graham Bell? Noah? Theodore Roosevelt? John Bosco? (1) Mohammed? (2) John F. Kennedy?
Princess Diana? Mother Teresa? You? Yes, you!
What would have happened if Jesus' birth had been prevented? After all,
to the eyes of
the world Mary became pregnant before she was yet married - a woman
who, according to their socio-religious law, would
have been taken to the edge of town and stoned to death.
Could it be that by ignoring the consequences of our actions we are
Russian Roulette but with five
out of six chambers loaded?
A Doorway to the Future - Starting
If we honestly face reality, it is obvious that the condition of the
and socially, is deteriorating year after year. Even those who are
becoming more affluent are leading more frightened
and lonely lives because they are drifting further away from God and
slipping deeper into the well of despair.
If people were leading full, rich and rewarding lives they would not be
trying to escape
their emptiness through material possessions and the temporal pleasures
of the flesh (or the elusive dream of enjoying
However, the situation is not really
bad... we should not feel that lonely because God loves us and
He wants us to be happy and fulfilled no matter what our past
may have been.
He wants to remind us that the worst sin than man may have ever
committed is but a grain
of sand when compared to the Oceans of His Mercy! (3)
to me, all you who labor and are overburdened,
and I will give you rest." [Matthew 11:28]
is what please me, not sacrifice! And indeed I
came to call not the upright, but sinners." [Matthew
with me, I have found my sheep that was
lost." [Luke 15:6]
...and then, after being well rested and reconciled with Him, you can
be all that He
intended you to be in this world. You can lead a full and rewarding
life and then... spend an Eternity of indescribable
joy in Heaven. Really!
