While we know that abortionists & clinic workers receive a pay check for murdering innocent children, the mothers & fathers & companions of aborting women also receive a 'reward'. Whatever 'motive' they have for killing or helping to kill a baby is their 'reward'
When we speak to the mothers as they arrive to have their living infants delivered into the toilet or dismembered, we always ask: "What is the biggest reason that you feel like you just cannot raise this baby?" Here are some of the answers the aborting women give us:
"I already have two kids"
"I don't want any more"
"It's just not a good time"
"I can't afford to raise another one."
"I'm too young"
"I am in school"
"I just can't tell my parents"
"I had an affair and I don't want my husband to find out"
Looking at the justifications aborting women provide for us, we can draw some conclusions about the 'rewards' they are looking to get out of killing their babies. Let's take each one and draw a corresponding reward.
"I already have two kids" - Reward for aborting: Won't have to raise another child.
"I don't a this baby" - Reward: Will be free to go on with her life without having to sacrifice.
"It's just not a good time" Reward: Can have more time without the responsibility of a baby.
"I can't afford to raise another one." Reward: Financial benefit, no expense for pre-natal & delivery, child care, food, clothing, shelter, education, etc.
"I'm too young" Reward: Can continue having fun, freedom & sowing wild oats.
"I am in school" Reward: Won't have to figure out way to continue education with a child in tow.
"I just can't tell my parents" Reward: Can hide her sexual immorality and pregnancy.
"I am having an affair and I don't want my husband to find out" Reward: Can continue to commit adultery.
Let's face it, having children involves a enormous investment of time, emotional and physical energy and a GREAT DEAL OF MONEY. According to this website: http://moneycentral.msn.co
So, in conclusion, when a pregnant woman pays to have an abortionist murder her child (or performs a do-it-yourself abortion at home which more & more mothers are opting for, with RU-486 & the help of websites like: http://www.sisterzeus.com/
The Lord has declared in Deuteronomy 27:25: "Cursed is the one that takes a reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen."
If God's people are to pronounce a curse upon all who shed innocent blood, let us discover what the word 'curse' means. Here is the dictionary definition.
1. (v. t.) To call upon divine or supernatural power to send injury upon; to imprecate evil upon; to execrate.
2. (v. t.) To bring great evil upon; to be the cause of serious harm or unhappiness to; to furnish with that which will be a cause of deep trouble; to afflict or injure grievously; to harass or torment.
3. (v. i.) To utter imprecations or curses; to affirm or deny with imprecations; to swear.
4. (n.) An invocation of, or prayer for, harm or injury; malediction.
5. (v. t.) Evil pronounced or invoked upon another, solemnly, or in passion; subjection to, or sentence of, divine condemnation.
6. (n.) The cause of great harm, evil, or misfortune; that which brings evil or severe affliction; torment.
In Matthew Henry's commentary on this passage of scripture he explains:
Ministers should apply to themselves the blessing and curse they preach to others, and by faith set their own Amen to it. And they must not only allure people to their duty with the promises of a blessing, but awe them with the threatenings of a curse, by declaring that a curse would be upon those who do such things. To each of the curses the people were to say, Amen. It professed their faith, that these, and the like curses, were real declarations of the wrath of God against the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, not one jot of which shall fall to the ground. It was acknowledging the equity of these curses. Those who do such things deserve to fall, and lie under the curse. Lest those who were guilty of other sins, not here mentioned, should think themselves safe from the curse, the last reaches all. Not only those who do the evil which the law forbids, but those also who omit the good which the law requires. Without the atoning blood of Christ, sinners can neither have communion with a holy God, nor do any thing acceptable to him; his righteous law condemns every one who, at any time, or in any thing, transgresses it. Under its awful curse we remain as transgressors, until the redemption of Christ is applied to our hearts. Wherever the grace of God brings salvation, it teaches the believer to deny ungodliness and wordly lusts, to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, consenting to, and delighting in the words of God's law, after the inward man. In this holy walk, true peace and solid joy are to be found.
...Ministers must preach the terrors of the law as well as the comforts of the gospel; must not only allure people to their duty with the promises of a blessing, but awe them to it with the threatenings of a curse.
...But how could they say Amen to the curses?
(1.) It was a profession of their faith in the truth of them..curses [are].. the real declarations of the wrath of God against the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, not one iota of which shall fall to the ground.
(2.) It was an acknowledgment of the equity of these curses; when they said Amen, they did in effect say, not only, It is certain it shall be so, but, It is just it should be so. Those who do such things deserve to fall and lie under the curse.
(3.) It was such an imprecation upon themselves as strongly obliged them to have nothing to do with those evil practices upon which the curse is here entailed.
"Let God's wrath fall upon us if ever we do such things."
"All the people, by saying this Amen, became bound for one another, that they would observe God's laws, by which every man was obliged, as far as he could, to prevent his neighbour from breaking these laws, and to reprove those that had offended, lest they should bear sin and the curse for them."
Let us now observe what are the particular sins against which the curses are here denounced... Against the sixth commandment ['You shall not murder']. Two of the worst kinds of murder are here specified:
(1.) Murder unseen, when a man does not set upon his neighbour as a fair adversary, giving him an opportunity to defend himself, but smites him secretly (v. 24), as by poison or otherwise, when he sees not who hurts him. See Ps. 10:8, 9. Though such secret murders may go undiscovered and unpunished, yet the curse of God will follow them.
(2.) Murder under colour of law, which is the greatest affront to God, for it makes an ordinance of his to patronise the worst of villains, and the greatest wrong to our neighbour, for it ruins his honour as well as his life: cursed therefore is he that will be hired, or bribed, to accuse, or to convict, or to condemn, and so to slay, an innocent person, v. 25. See Ps. 15:5.
This, my friends, is why we pray and fast and go to the abortuaries. We are there to offer help to the mothers who are arriving to murder their young. We have no desire that they should invoke additional curse of God. We love them and their children and seek to help them obey the reasonable commandments of God regarding sexual purity and the sanctity of human life. We tell the women that they were designed, created, sustained and ruled over by God. We explain that just as they were gifts to their momma and daddy, their infant is a personal gift from the Lord to them. We educate the women about adoption (showing them couples who are waiting to adopt: www.parentprofiles.com) and we offer to help them, by the grace and provision of Christ, through pregnancy. As ambassadors of the Lord Jesus, we command our aborting neighbors to repent and believe the gospel, to be free from the abomination of the curse.
