Pastor Robert Kujawski believes the Bible is clear about abortion – and science is, too.
In a column for the Herald Times Reporter, the Lutheran pastor explained why he believes every human life is valuable and why he has hope for the future.
“There is a major battle being waged regarding this issue. On the one hand, we have politicians who are espousing allowing a mother and her doctor to kill the child even after a baby is born. Many of these same politicians and activists openly oppose and threaten to veto attempts to curb abortion practice,” wrote Kujawski, the pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
“On the other hand, some states, most dramatically Alabama, have now passed laws making it once again illegal to perform an abortion,” he continued.
Though tens of millions of babies have been killed in abortions, Kujawski said there is hope for the future when people really seek the truth.
“The Bible makes it clear that human life begins at conception and that all human life is precious,” he said.
Even those who are not Christians need only to look to science to realize that abortion is an injustice, he wrote.
Reexamine the science. Our society is constantly telling us that in many issues facing us that science is what must be considered first and foremost. So what does biology tell us about what is growing inside a pregnant woman? As in other sciences, our understanding of biology has grown by leaps and bounds between 1973 and 2020. Have the scientific advances shown us that the child growing inside of a woman is more or less of a human being than was thought in 1973?
I think you will find that the answer is obvious to any impartial observer.
He challenged Americans to read the testimonies to the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and to research the history of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America.
“Observe how assurances that abortion would be rare or would not be used as birth control have proven untrustworthy,” Kujawski said. “Reread the history of Planned Parenthood and discover the underlying philosophy of its founder — you will probably be surprised.”
The truth is clear when people search for the truth. Unborn babies are unique, valuable human beings from the moment their lives come into existence, the moment of conception. Abortion destroys their lives, and the abortion industry profits from their deaths.
The truth is undeniable, whether a person is a Christian or not. Unborn babies are precious, valuable human beings who deserve to be protected.
