An Abominable, unGodly Leap

19 Feb

 
What I’ve written below concerns an article which begins this way:


 

Thanks to Screening and Abortion,
No Babies With Down Syndrome Are Born In Iceland

by Jenny Rapson, For Every Mom

       “Yesterday I read this ‘crazy’ quote on a pro-life website, alleging that no babies with Down syndrome had been born in Iceland in the last five years, because 100% of expectant moms undergo pre-natal screening for DS and 100% who get a positive result abort. I was absolutely SHOCKED by this, and set out to research whether or not it is true.
       “And now I sit here at my computer screen, tears streaming down my face…”


(A link to the entire article is at the bottom. But first, let me vent…)

Wait a minute… Iceland has purposefully worked toward this result (as reported by the BBC), and as a nation they are PROUD it of?   HAPPY about it??   This is a national VALUE???

All Christians should tremble and weep at this news.

From Catholic and Orthodox to Episcopal and Anglican, from Coptic to Sabbatarian, Protestant to Reformed, Pentecostal to Evangelical, even monastics to cultists — we all share the same 66 books in the Word of God. Can we not read? Are our hearts and minds not moved?

I fear we’ve taken the following abominable, unGodly leap:

FROM THIS—
God knowing us before we were born:
   • God chose you before He formed you in the womb; He set you apart before you were born. (Jeremiah 1:5)
   • God knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13)
   • The Lord called me before I was born. He named me while I was in my mother’s womb. (Isaiah 49:1)
   • God filled the child with the Holy Spirit while still in his mother’s womb. (Luke 1:15)

TO THIS—
“We jabbed you with needles while you were in your mother’s womb, and what we discovered made us decide to kill you. We made that decision because we saw you as imperfect, and therefore unworthy and incapable of a meaningful life. Oh yes, and you would be a severe burden on your parents, not to mention a huge financial hardship to all of society.”

Pray fervently and without ceasing that God will blanket the entire world with a powerful spirit of humility and repentance that will Stop the Abortion Holocaust!

God help us all.

    My heart is filled with so much, I’m finding it difficult to even type a response to this article. It reminds me of Nazi Germany and their “Purify” campaigns to have only, what they considered, perfect people. Watching The Man in the High Castle (Amazon series where American loses WWII and the Japanese take west of the Rockies and the German’s take the East) has recently reminded me of the horror of the Nazi philosophy. Unfortunately, what I thought would only be fiction now, is actually still a reality.

    As a nurse manager in a pediatric clinic, I see thousands of children each year, from all over the world and from all socioeconomic levels. I see healthy children and sadly, those who have chronic conditions, even fatal ones. I’ve witnessed moms struggle and put themselves in peril to get health care for their children. I’ve seen the beautiful smiles of children confined to wheelchairs and those born with misshapen limbs and faces. I’ve held tiny preemies and those so developmentally delayed they will never talk, feed themselves, or run. I never have seen any of these kids as less than, or worthless. They are beautiful and bring such joy! We have a little fellow who can’t use his arms or legs but he can giggle! He can smile! He lights up the room just by being in it. A little girl with DS gives the best hugs and high fives! The kid with the heart defect didn’t ask for riches or trips or anything much, just a barbie doll and to be able to walk in her classroom without getting too tired. Yes, this breaks my heart and makes me want to scream. Mostly, though, it makes me sad because a lot of people will never know joy from my side of the world. Love you GB! Keep up the fight!
