I was recently asked how I justify the Democratic stance on abortion. Normally, that kind of thing is covered here on this site. But the question came up on my other site – godversusreligion.com. The conclusion of what I wrote was:
In light of that, should our hot button item be strictly focused on preventing abortion?
Or should our focus be on spreading the Gospel?
On getting people to understand why abortion is against God’s will, rather than only trying to make it against man’s law?
Shouldn’t we focus on the eternal souls of both the mother and the baby? Helping the mother to navigate a difficult time?
Loving the mother, no matter her choice of whether to go through with the abortion or not? Loving mother and baby if the mother chooses to go through with the birth?
Ultimately, shouldn’t we be more like Christ? We are, after all, Jesus’ representatives here on earth – until He returns. And that is part of what we’re to do per the Great Commission. Judgment is His, not ours. We are to love. Even, and maybe especially, when we don’t want to.
