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:
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)
“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.
“The word of the LORD came to me:
‘I chose you before I formed you in the womb;
I set you apart before you were born.
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.’ ”
— Jeremiah 1:4-5
“Considering how often throughout history
even intelligent people have been proved to be wrong,
it is amazing that there are still people who are convinced
that the only reason anyone could possibly
say something different from what they believe
is stupidity or dishonesty.”
— Dr. Thomas Sowell
