The deception of abortion

Dear Editor,

There is a saying, “When America sneeze Jamaica ketch cold,” and it has been proven to be true over the years.

The abortion industry began in the US in 1969 when Dr Bernard Nathanson and Lawrence Lader (journalist) co-founded the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). The purpose of NARAL is to “eliminate all laws and practices that would compel any woman to bear a child against her will”. They came up with the slogans, “Freedom of choice” and “Women must have control over their own bodies” in order to sell their cause.

Jamaica has been gravitating towards legalising abortion without knowing the whole truth. Nathanson, now deceased, made confessions after performing approximately 75,000 abortions. He explained the tactics they used in order to push their cause: The first tactic was to capture the media by using fictitious polling results. The second tactic was to play the 'Catholic card' by painting a picture of the hierarchy as being out of touch with the real world. The third tactic was the degradation and suppression of all scientific evidence that life begins at conception.

Dr Nathanson wrote in his confessions:

“A favourite pro-abortion tactic is to insist that the definition of when life begins is impossible; that the question is a theological or moral or philosophical one, anything but scientific one.

“(The study of the foetus in the womb) makes it undeniably evident that life begins at conception and requires all the protection and safeguards that any of us enjoy. As a scientist I know, not believe, know that human life begins at conception.”

If Jamaica wants to be a part of something they should know the truth, and from what we have seen so far the whole abortion industry is built on lies.

Dr Anthony Levantino, who was an active abortion provider, has now been converted to a pro-life activist, and he also endorsed that life begins at conception. This tells me that having an abortion at any stage of pregnancy is committing murder.

The word of God says, “Thou shalt not kill,” have we now come to the place where we are saying it is okay to murder our children? The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue. If we are speaking abortion, we are speaking “death” and the word has gone forth out of our mouths and is performing what it was sent to do.

Come on, people of Jamaica, this is a new day, the Lord is at hand. Those who are calling for abortion has an agenda that does not line up with the will and plans that God has for us. So let us begin to speak life in the atmosphere and over our children.

We are crying out for the violence against our children to end, but how is it different when we are endorsing abortion?
