Things are shifting in America before our eyes. The state of New York recently passed a bill legalizing abortion right up to the moment of birth. The name of the bill was the “The Reproductive Health Act.” It had previously been blocked for years when Republicans controlled the State Senate in New York. Because the Democrats recently took both houses in the New York legislature, it was quickly passed. The Senate passed it 38-24. In the Assembly, it passed by a 92-47 margin. Gov Cuomo quickly signed into law Tuesday night.
This is an ominous sign concerning the direction of abortion in our country. This bill could play a role in opening the floodgates in the future as inevitably other states begin to follow New York’s lead. We cannot take the passing of this bill lightly. Some people may argue that the pro-life movement is stronger than ever, however, just days ago an Iowa judge struck down a state law banning a woman from obtaining an abortion once a fetus’ heartbeat is detected, saying it violated the state’s constitution. There is still a very strong, vocal and bold resistance to the pro-life movement. We must remember that the legalization of gay marriage began with one state which then led to other states adopting similar laws. We have no future guarantee that the same trend will not occur regarding abortion laws in our nation.
As Christians, we have an obligation to stand in the gap for the helpless and the most helpless lives are the lives of the unborn. Abortion is not just a societal issue. It is not just a cultural issue. Abortion is a moral issue, and all moral issues, at the end of the day, are actually spiritual issues.
When we look at abortion purely from a spiritual lens, abortion is satanic worship. There is truly no way around this reality and in the following paragraphs I will explain why this is so.
If we as believers are to be in the truth and in the light, we have to acknowledge abortion for what it really is. Abortion is the shedding of innocent blood.
The shedding of innocent blood is a clear violation of the fourth commandment which states in Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.” Proverbs 6:17 also says God hates “hands that shed innocent blood.” The right to life is the most valuable right that has been given to any human being by the Creator. This is why from the beginning of human history, the devil has sought to twist people’s hearts and to tempt them to murder. Murder is always inspired by Satan, whether it be in the womb, or outside of the womb. The shedding of innocent blood is a form of satanic worship. It honors Satan. It never honors God.
Many pagan cultures throughout history had child sacrifice as part of worship to their gods. They would sacrifice children to idols in the hope that it would bring favor, blessing, and a better life. The modern abortion industry, at its heart, is no different from the child sacrifice rituals of the ancient world and pagan cultures. The only difference is that in ancient times they didn’t sacrifice the child while he, or she, was still in their mother’s womb.
In 2004, the Guttmacher Institute anonymously surveyed 1,209 post-abortive women from nine different abortion clinics across the country. Of the women surveyed, 957 provided a main reason for having an abortion. 92.5% of those survey gave purely selfish reasons for why they decided to have an abortion. That means that 92.5% of these children were sacrificed in the hope that it would result in a better life for the mother.
