Abortion is the deliberate killing of the weakest and most defenseless among us. Unfortunately, for the last few decades, the practice has been recognized as a fundamental human right by the highest court of the land. Many people are fervent supporters of abortion. Their reasons for support are varied. However, I believe that support for abortion is not possible for those who understand our dignity as human persons under God. We were made by God, and it is from Him that we derive our worth.
The debate over abortion, then, is really a debate over our nature as human creatures. Who are we? Why is life important? It was while grappling with these questions that I created this website. To advance in understanding is hard work. It is important to think clearly. My fervent hope is that what is said here will help clarify the issues for those who fight for the unborn and will, therefore, in however small a way, be used for the glory of God.
HISTORY OF ABORTION :
A court transcript from London, England, 1732. Provides an insight into a certain Eleanor Merriman-Beare who was indicted two times "for destroying the Foetus in the Womb", and once for "endeavouring to persuade Nicholas Wilson to poison his Wife, and for giving him Poison for that End."
