Pro Life, what is your choice?

A great poet once wrote…

“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb. 
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.” King David

Do you remember your mother’s womb? Chances are if you are reading this you survived it. I find it hard to wrap my head around God, in there tinkering away, carving me in to the adorable little button-nose, blue-eye bombshell, that I was.

It only takes a quick Google search to discover that life in the womb is both miraculous and majestic and I haven’t found a photo yet, taken by highly specialized equipment and professionally trained video-photographers, that revealed a swishing sloppy mound of mush.

How is it that in this modern world we are so ignorant of the true miracle of life?  With precision instruments and technology we are able “to go where no man has gone before.” For all of Americas great fascination with “other worlds”,  packing theaters recently to be the first in line to view Avatar, we have a strange lack of interest in the “inner world” of the human womb. Many who have dared to explore it have been captivated by it, never to be the same.

Do you know, exactly, how you got to be you? No? That’s because your “life” is a mystery. The creation of life is a supernatural event. Fireworks went off somewhere the moment you were conceived, well, close to it anyway. This supernatural mystery is the most misunderstood and, unfortunately, most abused phenomenon in all of humankind.

Every great society has practiced some form of child sacrifice.  From ancient Canaan and Phoenicia where infants and toddlers were placed on the golden, fire engulfed arms of the pagan gods Moloch and Kronos, respectively, to ancient Rome and the  rampant practice of infanticide.  In each of these great periods of time child sacrifice was practiced as a way to appease a false god  whether it was these gods or the god of licentious living.

I ask you me, if these great societies didn’t believe that their WAS a God and he operated the controls of life and death, health or disease, feast or famine would they really burn their children alive to satisfy him?

The history of United States of America parallels in many respects the rise of past great civilizations, most especially ancient Rome. Among the roughly fourteen major similarities we share is the national licensing and protection of abortion rights. History records that for all their splendorous community living Romans were barbaric in many of their common practices.

I really don’t understand why we even have a “pro-life/pro-choice  issue” in this country and why it has managed to divide us for so long.  Have we, as Americans, forgotten so quickly.  Eighteenth century slaves were considered, in many parts of our country, as less human than otherwise decent society and therefore less worthy of decent treatment. Did we not lose hundreds of thousands of lives during the civil war? Was not their loss partially to settle the issue of human worth in this country?

The recent anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and the March For Life gives us pause to consider these troubling questions. For now, my  pondering will have to wait until tomorrow……tune in!
