The argument is often made in support of abortion that it is a woman’s right to chose. However, this is a dangerous position without any conviction of right or wrong.
Those who support abortion only in cases such of rape, incest, or saving the life of the mother do have reasonable concerns, and convictions.
Though I would differ with them on the issue of abortion, the fact that they believe severe conditions do justify abortion, speaks to the fact that they do not condone abortion in all cases. This does show some sort of conviction because there is a line they will not cross.
The problem with “the woman’s right to choose” argument is that it casts off all restraint and there is no line that can’t be crossed.
If a woman wants to keep sleeping around, is it OK for her to abort her unborn child?
If a woman gets a high paying job, is it OK to abort her unborn child?
If a woman meets the man of her dreams, and he doesn’t want children, is it OK for her to abort her unborn child?
Where do we draw the line? At what point do we say, “this is taking it too far!”?
The problem with the woman’s right to chose narrative is that it is a political position which knows no stopping point. When this sort of ideology infiltrates Christian thinking on any moral issue, the Christian loses his influence as the salt of the earth and darkness is unrestrained.
As Christians we are called to be salt and light to a world that is perishing. When we display beliefs that are void of conviction of right and wrong we lose our influence.
For those of you who claim, “its the woman’s right to choose” is there any time when that “right” is used wrongly? Are there times when that “right” does indeed serve evil and ungodly motives? If so are you willing to stand against it?
The woman’s right to choose is a deceptive ideology that is causing many people to cast off restraint, and when there is no restraint or no line we will not cross – we have indeed crossed the line.
