Pro-Choice Is No ChoiceApril 3, 2018 Save Article
I'm telling you, pro choice is no choice. Somebody says, "Well, now wait a minute. A woman's body is her own body." But we're not talking about her body; we're talking about the body of a little baby. Freedom of choice is not the freedom of choice to kill someone else.
"Well," you say, "the baby lives inside the mother." Suppose I have an unwanted guest in my home? Do I have the right to kill an unwanted guest in my home? Put it down big, put it down plain, put it down straight: no mother has the right to kill her children, no matter what kind of choice she says she has.
"Well," you say, "it's my own body." But you really don't even have that much right over your own body. For example, do you have the right to practice prostitution because it's your own body? “It's my own body—if I want to sell it I can?" You don't have that right. It may be her body, but she doesn't have complete control over her body in a civilized society, much less control over the body of that baby that lives within her. Pro choice is no choice.
Psalm 139:13-16 says, "For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."
