Abort and try again????
We’re not talking about a rocket launch here! First of all, Mr. Dawkins, the baby in question is not an “it”. We’re talking about a person; with a spirit, a mind, dreams, and desires. In America, at least in principal, we espouse that each person is given by God, the unalienable right to live.
What is the solution to this self-serving, short-sighted, and faulty thinking? The answer has been given to us by God Himself.Julia Millington, of the Alive and Kicking Campaign, said: "It is all about our perceptions of perfection. Increasingly things are moving along the lines where nothing is good enough. it seems we can no longer tolerate any imperfection. Babies are at the mercy of ultrasound scans and what they may disclose."
No one is perfect. The Bible tells us, we are all made in God's image. It also tells us we are all made “broken”, have imperfect DNA, and an inherited sin nature. We have ALL fallen short of God’s original glory- and yet He loves us. His response to our sin and brokenness was to have compassion and mercy on us. Instead of aborting us, He saved us. His love reaches down into our frailties and imperfections. He offers redemption and restoration. His love compels us to love others as He, Himself loves. That is why we shouldn’t abort anyone, and start over.
