God’s Solution to Problem Pregnancies

We are told that the reason we need to allow voluntary child killing is that women who are not ready to raise a child should not have one. We are told that the problems created by unplanned pregnancies are so great that it is better to end the pregnancy than to raise an unwanted child. We are also told that women who are not prepared to have children will make horrible parents, the child will disrupt the life of the mother, and it is better to allow the parents to kill the child than for a child to be raised in an unwanted home.

Those of us in pro-life community need to take heed of these words. For it is very true that women have very difficult circumstances. The first problem, and the largest one, is the men who get them pregnant and do not stay around to raise the child. Most of society’s problems are created by the men, and especially so in the case of unwanted pregnancies. The men have their fun, then do not stay around, and the women get the short end of the deal. The problem for these single moms are real, they are severe, and extremely disrupting to the pregnant woman. Her problems are often mind-boggling, and there is no quick, easy fix. So we are told that we must allow them to voluntarily kill their child, because this is the best solution to the horrendous problem.

However, the Bible has another solution. In Psalm 139, we find these words written about God:

If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
    and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
    the night is bright as the day,
    for darkness is as light with you.

 In these verses, the person speaking is saying that their problems are so severe that they cannot see a way out; the darkness of the problems have become so huge that “the light about me be night.” In other words, even in the daytime all this person sees is darkness. The problems are so bad that they cannot see any way out. To this person, even the light is dark.

But to God, all problems have a solution. Nothing surprises Him, nothing is too difficult for Him to fix. To God, “the night is as bright as day,” which means that even in the midst of the darkest problem, God can see the solution as bright as day.

Psalm 139 goes on to say:

For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

This verse says that God made us, even in our mother’s wombs. He put us together, He knows us, and He made us in a wonderful way. God makes every baby in a “fearful and wonderful” way.

No matter how severe our problems are, no matter how dark our situation is, we have no right to take the life of an innocent baby that God has made. No matter how bad the problem is, God has known about it, and God can fix it.

I do not know your problem, and I’m sure it looks very dark to you. But to God, He can see a solution even if you or I cannot. Will you trust God to solve your problems? Will you give your baby a chance at life?  Find a Christian adoption agency and give the baby a chance at life.

And for those of us who call ourselves pro-life, will we put our convictions into shoe leather, and do something about it?
