It All Started When...Kanye West Twittered About Abortion

Do we listen when celebrities make their opinion known?  Of course.  Why do you think it appeals to so many people when Entertainment Tonight comes on TV, or when the Insider comes on?  Or how about standing in line at the grocery store, and seeing the headlines on a celebrity gossip magazine? 

Why don't we just blame it on Kanye West? He isn't usually afraid to share his opinion on anything.  Because Beyonce's music video was obviously the greatest of all time.

Kanye's recent tweet was about gold diggin' women who get pregnant on purpose just to make money off of the neighborhood balla'.  He goes on to say how expensive an abortion costs and then says to "strap up" and that it hasn't personally happened to him - but he has a "friend" that it has happened to..........Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

Justin Bieber was also recently quoted by Rolling Stone, saying: "I really don't believe in abortion.... I think [an embryo] is a human.  It's like killing a baby." His Rolling Stone interview can be seen here.

Would you listen to someone who is respected by many because of her ministry?  Mother Teresa of Calcutta had a ministry that lasted over 45 years taking care of the poor, orphaned, sick, and dying.

She once said:  "The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the child. The mother doesn't learn to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want."

Killing a life is the simple way out of responsibility.  But in our society we live in the moment, and don't consider the possibility that a living, breathing child could actually come from having sex.  And that is where the trouble starts in the first place.  "Hook ups" are taking place by young adults and kids as early as in middle school, and the parties responsible still aren't mature enough to take care of themselves.  Ultimately, this lack of guidance falls on the parents, for not instilling a value system on life in the first place.  A lack of morals equal a lack of value on life.  If you don't believe there is a spiritual aspect to life, then why value a relationship as anything more than a "hook up?"  That thought process is playing out everyday as newborns are increasingly looked at as a mistake, instead of as a gift from God.


And finally, former President Ronald Reagan said in a [22 September] 1980 New York Times:  "I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born."

That's a good point, since the unborn can't defend themselves against those of us that are given a chance at life. 

January 22, 2011 marks the 39th anniversary of Rowe v. Wade, the pivotal court decision legalizing abortion.

As a Christian, I will pray that people begin to value life in this country, and not take killing a human life so lightly.

After all, as the bumper sticker reads: Aren't you glad someone didn't abort you?

I almost was, and I am thankful that God spared my life.
