“Once again, the pro-life industry is exposed for what it is, a tasteless enabler of perdition. Donald Trump suggests and rightly so that there should be some form of punishment that should be attached to the murderous act of abortion. Liberals, conservatives, and the usual suspects in the pro-life movement became unglued. They lined up to condemn him.
They believe he is out of step with the official “pro-life” seal of approval. Little do they realize how far out of touch they are when it comes to Biblical reality. God calls it murder and He treats it as murder.
The church and state may fail in treating this demonic scourge for what it is, but God cannot deny Himself. He is the God of justice and mercy. If our government does not punish murder, the penalty does not just magically disappear. It merely moves from the ones guilty of murder to a society that condones it.
God and His moral commandments are inescapable. They provide the framework of all reality. They establish spiritual gravity. Bloodshed touches bloodshed. It breaks out like a plague. If we want violence to be curbed in America and peace to return, we must treat abortion as murder and penalize it accordingly.
There are cases where women are victimized by abortion and we need to be mindful and compassionate towards them. Having stated this, however, it is also reality that most women who obtain abortions are not victims. The baby in the womb is the only victim when their parent’s sexual immorality lead them to commit a murderous act.
For those of us who regularly minister at death camps, we know for sure that most women know exactly what they are doing and are defiant in behavior. They scream, yell, attack, curse, give you the finger, blaspheme, and do vile acts to justify the murder they are about to commit.
In them, the Proverb is fulfilled, “This is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, and says, “I have done no wickedness” (Proverbs 30:20).
Whether or not our government, church, or society calls what they do murder and penalize accordingly, know this for certain, no murderer has eternal life abiding in them. They will not inherit heaven, unless they confess this sin and repent of the crime of murder. They must come into agreement with God on this crucial matter or be lost forever.
Isaiah 55:7 states, “Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.”
When we meet His conditions, God is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Praise be to God for His unspeakable gift that is full of glory and great joy!
In a recent article, Pastor Matt Trewhella commenting on the Trump controversy wrote:
“Even The U. S. Supreme Court saw the inconsistency of such non-penalties. Blackmun used the lack of punishment to the woman and the low punishment to the abortionist as proof that the preborn child must not be “a person.”
The Roe v. Wade opinion reads:
“There are other inconsistencies between Fourteenth Amendment status and the typical abortion statute. It has already been pointed out, n. 49, supra, that, in Texas, the woman is not a principal or an accomplice with respect to an abortion upon her. If the fetus is a person, why is the woman not a principal or an accomplice? Further, the penalty for criminal abortion specified by Art. 1195 is significantly less than the maximum penalty for murder prescribed by Art. 1257 of the Texas Penal Code. If the fetus is a person, may the penalties be different?” [Endnote 54]
The Court is pointing out the incongruity of the Texas law. 1.) The 3 to 6-year sentence for the abortionist came far short of the capital punishment proper to anyone convicted of the premeditated murder of another person; and, 2.) the mother is not punished at all.
By refusing to criminalize the actions of the woman and instead labeling her a victim – we undermine both the humanity of the preborn child and the rightly stated argument that abortion is murder.
When we are asked what the punishment should be for women who have illegal abortions, we should unashamedly respond – whatever the penalty is for murder in the state where it takes place.
Of course, as Christians, we offer the good news of redemption through Christ to those guilty of abortion, just as we would any other criminal guilty of a capital crime. But that does not negate the God-given role of the civil magistrate to administer just punishment on behalf of society.
To think otherwise about this matter, is to give credence to the present matriarchal bloodlust in our nation, just as the Romans gave credence to the past patriarchal bloodlust of fathers who could murder their own sons and daughters by leaving them at the infanticide wall to die.
