C. Everett Koop once said, “Both sides, pro-life, pro-abortion … care simply about winning: winning each court case, each legislative battle, each electoral contest, each rally. They glare and shout at each other over an unbridgeable chasm … I wonder if each side has forgotten the human element that originally prompted the debate: the innocent unborn child, the agonized pregnant woman.”
Society is so worried about who is better (the pro-lifers or the pro-choicers) that we aren’t willing to take a step back and think about what’s really at stake. We’re talking about a human life with a heartbeat and brain activity here. Who are we to argue about who’s right and who’s wrong?
There is a reason for everything. God has a purpose for that baby even though we don’t know what that is. What gives us the right to take that away from Him?
The battle between pro-life and pro-abortion is strong and neither side is taking a look at the bigger picture. Whose decision is right? An innocent unborn child is looking for his chance in this world. God has a reason for the baby to be born. Why don’t we give ourselves the chance to find out what that reason is?
