Determined to kill

Posted by Gary on August 16, 2007

This billboard has been placed by the Manhattan Mini-Storage in New York (see news story here). How often we have held before us the coat hanger in regard to the abortion debate. What we are told is that women will be forced to resort to using coat hangers to abort their children if the murderous practice is not made available through medical facilities. I wonder, is this plea (which is actually a threat) supposed to invoke sympathy from us? Am I to feel sympathy for a woman who is so determined to end the life of another that she will resort to using a coat hanger to accomplish her goal?

The coat hanger is a symbol of the evil that undergirds infanticide. “We will kill our babies no matter what it takes.” If you have never done so can I urge you to stop and ponder the threat to kill a child with a coat hanger? “Instead of loving and raising my child I would rather kill him with a coat hanger.” “Instead of giving birth to my child and allowing someone to adopt him, I will kill him with a coat hanger.” “I would rather kill my child with a coat hanger than tell my parents I’m pregnant.” “I would rather kill my child with a coat hanger than have my career interrupted.” “I would rather kill my child with a coat hanger than face the consequences of my decisions.”

Women are apparently very concerned about their health, without end we hear about the health of the mother as a justification for abortion. Though it is more than probable that a pregnant woman will deliver her child without difficulty and could give them up for adoption we are told that women will risk their health and lives by jamming a coat hanger inside themselves to end their pregnancy. I’m not sure that health is nearly as important as is claimed. I have posted previously but include again here a quote from former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop:

Protection of the life of the mother as an excuse for an abortion is a smoke screen. In my thirty-six years in pediatric surgery I have never known of one instance where the child had to be aborted to save the mother’s life.

Koop continues…

When a woman is pregnant, her obstetrician takes on the care of two patients—the mother-to-be and the unborn baby. If, toward the end of the pregnancy complications arise that threaten the mother’s health, he will take the child by inducing labor or performing a Caesarian section. His intention is still to save the life of both the mother and the baby. The baby will be premature … The baby is never willfully destroyed because the mother’s life is in danger. (C. Everett Koop, M. D., as told to Dick Bohrer, in
“Moody Monthly,” May, 1980.)

In the abortion debate the coat hanger is a threat; women (and the sinful men who support them) are determined to see children killed. This is what is implied is it not, “If you will not provide me the means to take my child’s life, I will do it myself”? God, the Bible tells us has a special judgment for women who shed blood:

Ezekiel 16:38 “Thus I will judge you like women who commit adultery or shed blood are judged; and I will bring on you the blood of wrath and jealousy.”

Abortionists threaten with the coat hanger, here is my reply and I refer to it not as a threat but a fact. You will see that coat hanger again; it will be in your hand when you stand before the God in whose image the child you murdered was created.

Dear God,

Many people visit this post who have done a search about how to kill their baby with a coat hanger. If it would be that one of them are reading today would you grant them to see that their child is made in your image? Give them the faith and courage they need to do what is right, keep them from shedding innocent blood. Provide them with the help that they need. Give them a Christian friend to support them. You can help them Lord.  In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    One thought…

    Though I agree completely and totally with your stance on abortion, I take issue with the statement:

    “The baby is never willfully destroyed because the mother’s life is in danger.”

    It is very, very rare for a baby to be aborted in order to save the life of the mother, but it does happen.

    Of course, that depends on when you believe life begins: at conception or at implantation. Most doctors subscribe to the theory that live begins at implantation, and thus the removal of the blastocyst does not constitute abortion. However, if you believe that life begins at conception, then any successful attempt to remove the embryo constitutes abortion.

    That would mean that women who have (and terminate) an ectopic pregnancy has had an abortion. In most cases (of which I’ve heard) if the mother allowed the pregnancy to continue she would die, barring a miracle.

    Having known Christian women who have suffered great pain, both physical and emotional as the result of having an abortion due to ectopic pregnancy, and having heard self-righteous men claim that even in such circumstances abortion is wrong: that getting pregnant was a risk she and her husband took, and therefore they are guilty of murder, I feel deeply for those who have been thus condemned. Talk about shooting your wounded!

    Abortion is wrong, but there are rare cases when it becomes the better of two evils. Women who have faced this often feel enough guilt and horror over what has happened to them and to their baby. Even as they mourn, they cling to the fact that their child is in Heaven, and that one day, they will finally be able to hold him/her.
