Here is my response:
You said that all we pro-life people are crazy. I would like to ask you, why do you think so?
IS IT BECAUSE doctors and scientist have affirmed and scientifically proven that at conception we are a person? If you are interested in truth please read:
…”Thus, human embryos are what the embryology textbooks say they are, namely, human organisms — living individuals of the human species — at the earliest developmental stage.” – Dr. Robert George (taken from: http://www.fallibleblogma.com/index.php/when-does-science-say-human-life-begins/
OR DO YOU CALL US CRAZY BECAUSE we know that when a eight week old baby is aborted he or she has excruciating pain and we are appalled at what they are doing to un-born people? We are a voice for them. Please read:
At 8 weeks, and all abortions are performed after eight weeks, the baby is completely formed and suffers an unimaginable agony inflicted by the abortion. Films like The Hard Truth and The Silent Scream portray the suffering of these babies.
DO YOU CALL US CRAZY BECAUSE we are trying to help young mothers know the truth about abortion? Many do not understand what they are doing, they believe it’s their body and can do what they want. However they have no idea the impact it will have on them for the rest of their lives! We are trying to help them understand. Please read:
“Abortion is war on women because it causes physical and mental ill-health. It leads to disrespect for women and attacks, such as rape, on women – in America where an abortion is performed every 23 seconds a rape occurs every 6 minutes. This is because where there is abortion, the traditional respect for women as nurturers of life and mothers, is broken down. Where there is no respect for life there can be no respect for women.” from:
“Post abortion symptoms are numerous. One of them is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a psychological disorder that affects individuals who have been involved in intense traumatic events such as torture, murder, rape, or war. Often PTSD includes frequently rehashing the event in the mind of the effected individual: nightmares, fatigue, irritability, nervousness, forgetfulness, and/or social withdraw.
Relationship problems often occur after an abortion. This is possibly due to sexual dysfunction, especially considering many women withdraw socially. Adding to relationship problems is the effect of another pregnancy among women who have opted or have been coerced into an abortion. The second pregnancy often leads to another abortion.
Studies display several concerns regarding the effect of abortion on women. Clinical depression is prevalent among married women who have had an abortion. Suicidal thoughts are common among teenagers who have recently had an abortion. Eating disorders ”
OR DO YOU CALL US CRAZY because we know the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. He said, “You shall not murder”. He places very severe judgment on those who disobey this command. To kill another person is to trample God and His commandments under foot. A person who kills another person cannot escape the internal agony and conviction that God places on them, that is why they have such severe reactions for the rest of their life, after an abortion.
The only way a mother who has killed her child through abortion can find peace is through Jesus Christ. He died on the cross for you. He rose again from the dead the third day. He is alive today and offers hope to those who believe on Him in their heart and repent of their sins. Please read this if you are interested in know the truth about God and His love through Jesus Christ:
“Whoever believes in him (Jesus) is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. (John 3:18) You can not save yourself, only God can save you. Jesus Christ died on the cross so that he could be punished instead of you. He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned–every one–to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:3-6)He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24)For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23) Jesus Christ rose up from the dead and he will be your judge when you die.”
Finally Lily, do you think we are crazy because we love you and all people, and want to help them? We love you and them through the love of God that He has instilled in our hearts through Jesus Christ.
Please let me know your reasoning.
