ABORTION

IntroductionContents

After Climate change, Abortion is one of the most contentious topics currently in the NZ scene and in the US especially. It has been festering for many years with many organisations opposed to it. We believe at its base level, Abortion is the killing of a human being with conception being the start of human life. To us it does not matter where the baby is in it’s growing process as life has already started and life is to be protected. This is the sanctity of life. Just imagine if your mother had aborted you, you would not be reading this passage and have experienced life to date! Here are the contents of this page listed.

ABORTION DEFINITION

Source from wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion

Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus. An abortion which occurs spontaneously is also known as a miscarriage. An abortion may be caused purposely and is then called an induced abortion, or less frequently, “induced miscarriage”.

The word abortion is often used to mean only induced abortions. A similar procedure after the fetus could potentially survive outside the womb is known as a “late termination of pregnancy“.When allowed by local law, abortion in the developed world is one of the safest procedures in medicine. Modern methods use medication or surgery for abortions.The drug mifepristone in combination with prostaglandin appears to be as safe and effective as surgery during the first and second trimester of pregnancy.

Birth control, such as the pill or intrauterine devices, can be used immediately following abortion. When performed legally and safely, induced abortions do not increase the risk of long-term mental or physical problems. In contrast, unsafe abortions cause 47,000 deaths and 5 million hospital admissions each year.

The World Health Organization recommends safe and legal abortions be available to all women.Around 56 million abortions occur each year in the world, with a little under half done unsafely. Abortion rates changed little between 2003 and 2008, before which they decreased for at least two decades as access to family planning and birth control increased. As of 2008, 40% of the world’s women had access to legal abortions without limits as to reason.

Countries that permit abortions have different limits on how late in pregnancy abortion is allowed. Since ancient times, abortions have been done using herbal medicines, sharp tools, with force, or through other traditional methods. Abortion laws and cultural or religious views of abortions are different around the world.

In some areas abortion is legal only in specific cases such as rape, problems with the fetus, poverty, risk to a woman’s health, or incest. In many places there is much debate over the moral, ethical, and legal issues of abortion. Those who oppose abortion often maintain that an embryo or fetus is a human with a right to life and may compare abortion to murder.Those who favor the legality of abortion often hold that a woman has a right to make decisions about her own body.

About this organisation

This organisation website is the result of several years planning and of course many, many hours of work by a small group of people. They intend to continue to develop the website still further, as the New Zealand public continue to provide them with feedback – suggestions, constructive criticism and the financial support necessary to progress to the next stage.

The website is unique. As far as they can tell, it is the first website in the world built as a true portal website relating to life issues, rather than what is called a “single dimension” website. This website aims to present all aspects of an issue, openly, honestly, without passing judgement and as best as possible without the usual bias caused by political, ideological, religious or financial interests.

It is unusual to find such a website on the Internet, even more so when a subject matter is so contentious!

Right to Life Inc. is an incorporated society. We are a Pro-Life organisation based in Christchurch New Zealand with members New Zealand wide.

We are a secular organisation although most of our member are people of faith. Our objective is to protect the weak and vulnerable in our society, life who cannot defend themselves, from forces which do not recognise the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death.  We seek to return our country to sanity with respect to the way we treat the vulnerable.  Part of this process is working to ensure that our laws relating to the legal recognition of our unborn children’s right to life are being administered as intended. Unborn children are endowed by their Creator with an unalienable right to life. It is only relatively recently that our society, driven by a permissive worldview has rejected the right to life of our unborn child, in favour of personal autonomy.

About this organisation

about marina & HOPE

my story and the inspiration behind the Buttons Project

So often we look at other people, and think they have got it all together.

But you never know the journey someone else has travelled.

My name is Marina and I am a New Zealander. My husband, Peter, and  I  have  been married  for 28+ years, and we have three  adult children. Over the  years,  our  marriage—like everyone else’s—has had its ups and downs. But we  also  carried  within  our  hearts  a deep  and secret loss. A loss which we could not grieve  for  or  talk about openly.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT ABORTION?

Source: http://www.gotquestions.org/abortion-Bible.html

The Bible never specifically addresses the issue of abortion. However, there are numerous teachings in Scripture that make it abundantly clear what God’s view of abortion is. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that God knows us before He forms us in the womb. Psalm 139:13-16 speaks of God’s active role in our creation and formation in the womb. Exodus 21:22-25 prescribes the same penalty—death—for someone who causes the death of a baby in the womb as for someone who commits murder. This clearly indicates that God considers a baby in the womb to be as human as a full-grown adult. For the Christian, abortion is not a matter of a woman’s right to choose. It is a matter of the life or death of a human being made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6).

The first argument that always arises against the Christian stance on abortion is “What about cases of rape and/or incest?” As horrible as it would be to become pregnant as a result of rape and/or incest, is the murder of a baby the answer? Two wrongs do not make a right. The child who is a result of rape/incest could be given in adoption to a loving family unable to have children on their own, or the child could be raised by its mother. Again, the baby is completely innocent and should not be punished for the evil acts of its father.

The second argument that usually arises against the Christian stance on abortion is “What about when the life of the mother is at risk?” Honestly, this is the most difficult question to answer on the issue of abortion. First, let’s remember that this situation is the reason behind less than one-tenth of one percent of the abortions done in the world today. Far more women have an abortion for convenience than women who have an abortion to save their own lives. Second, let’s remember that God is a God of miracles. He can preserve the life of a mother and a child despite all the medical odds being against it. Ultimately, though, this question can only be decided between a husband, wife, and God. Any couple facing this extremely difficult situation should pray to the Lord for wisdom (James 1:5) as to what He would have them to do.

Over 95 percent of the abortions performed today involve women who simply do not want to have a baby. Less than 5 percent of abortions are for the reasons of rape, incest, or the mother’s health at risk. Even in the more difficult 5 percent of instances, abortion should never be the first option. The life of a human being in the womb is worth every effort to allow the child to be born.

For those who have had an abortion, remember that the sin of abortion is no less forgivable than any other sin. Through faith in Christ, all sins can be forgiven (John 3:16; Romans 8:1; Colossians 1:14). A woman who has had an abortion, a man who has encouraged an abortion, or even a doctor who has performed one—can all be forgiven by faith in Jesus Christ.
