The Intercessor For America Newsletter, 1/2000 reports, It has been revealed that the reason partial-birth abortions are favored over the previously used method is that private companies involved in selling the organs and body parts of aborted babies wanted whole parts. Price lists show brains selling for $999, spinal cords for $325, arms and legs at $150 and skin for $100. Some universities and federally funded embryology labs operate round-the-clock collection services at abortuaries. The House, by voice vote, passed Resolution H. Res. 350 which mandates hearings and action if necessary, concerning this grizzly business. It was in 1993 that President Clinton signed the NIH Revitalization Act which lifted the ban on federally funded research involving the transplantation of fetal tissue (via The Witness).

We do not print the above information simply for vain sensationalism, but to allow those who are becoming more tolerant of "pregnancy termination" to begin to realize why such a "choice" is becoming more and more available in this society. Abortion is a very profitable business. We see abortion as a despicable sin of this modern world, but it has become (believe it or not) the advice given to girls in the church who find themselves pregnant and unmarried. Some give young girls the advice that "this 'choice' is better than having to live with the embarrassment and humiliation of giving birth to an unwanted child... Just think what this will do to the rest of your family, and to the church... Then you have to decide how to dispose of it after it gets here... If you decide to have this baby and raise it yourself, you'll have to live with this stigma forever... And then if you give the child away for adoption you'll always wonder if it has a good life, or is it being abused... No, it's just better to end this mess quietly... That way you can go on with your life... There's no use your having to continue to deal with this mistake, and let it mess up your life... Just get this over with."

At one time some Christian women were discussing the subject of adoption of a baby born to an unmarried girl. One sister spoke up and said, that in order to spare the girl's parents and family the shame and humiliation, she would advise the girl to have an abortion. Shame, shame, shame!!! Sister, do you mean that all of the teaching of the New Testament should be thrown aside for the purpose of sparing someone embarrassment? We all know that God allows the satisfaction of the sexual desires of humans only in the marriage of a man and a woman (Hebrews 13:4). All other means of satisfaction are sinful. Doesn't the New Testament teach that Christians, young and old, are to keep themselves pure (1 Timothy 5:22)? Aren't Christians, whether they are young or old, taught that adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, etc., are works of the flesh and they will cause persons who do them to lose their own souls (Mark 7:22; 2 Corinthians 12:21; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 4:19; 1 Peter 4:3)?

We've all heard the expression, "two wrongs don't make a right." Listen, fornication plus abortion doesn't equal liberation. When that takes place you are not rid of guilt--one sin plus one sin equals two sins, and mounting guilt! Paul wrote, "But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God" (Romans 2:5). Anyway, since when did the murder of an unborn child become an "option" for a Christian to correct an embarrassment or a possible inconvenience? We wonder if a Christian girl's mind would be changed if she knew that her baby's body-parts were going to be sold? Sorry, but that is the crass, ungodly practice going on today!

Of course, going out and killing the workers at an abortion clinic is a sin which Christians cannot commit either. It's not even our purpose to rally protesters all over the world to picket local "abortuaries". We are simply trying to get faithful Christians to see abortion for what it is, and to encourage them to teach all others what a awful sin it is in the sight of God.

Christian parents need to train their children to be pure and chaste. They need to teach young men and women to resolve to keep themselves undefiled before marriage. And if, sadly, a sin is committed, Christian parents need to help their daughters and sons to gain God's forgiveness and never, never commit other sins to cover up that one. Christians have to combat an ungodly society which teaches our young people "the proper use of contraceptives," and not only teaches about their use but even provides such devices without their parents' knowledge. They say, "We know they'll do it anyway. You know you can't stop them. We are simply helping them prevent an unwanted pregnancy." Please tell us, where is the God-given solution--abstinence??? Parents in the church need to teach their children that there is no way in the sight of God to sin successfully!

When youngsters see their parents with a bent on getting anything and everything they want, how can they expect their kids to "just say, 'No'"? Parents, you need to be an example, being temperate in all things (1 Corinthians 9:25-27). The Deceiver is telling young people, "You're only young once, and a little booze and drugs, and 'safe sex' will assure you of a fun, exciting and successful transition through your teen years." But this wicked lie doesn't reveal the countless ruined lives full of helpless addiction, joblessness, hopeless, misery, guilt, disease-racked bodies, and even early-deaths which are, many times, the results of starting life this "fun and exciting" way. Each one of these things puts a soul at risk of never finding true happiness in this life and, of course, never being saved and gaining an eternal home in Heaven.

Remember, sin will "fool you" -- it is deceptive. The Scriptures say, "But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin" (Hebrews 3:13). Please continue to be strong, keep the faith, and pray for our young Christians.
