Does the woman want the baby?

If the woman wants a baby (and most of them do) then that which is conceived is a baby from the time of conception.

If the woman does not want a baby then that which is conceived is not a baby; it is only part of her body which is hers alone to do with what she wants.

This subjective way of determining truth means that someone is lying or deceived. It may be the same woman at two different times.

If women had no inherent mother instinct, but only a dead reasoning ability, they might be able to get away with this lie to themselves. But God did not make them that way.

In addition to having millions of babies in Heaven we have millions of women living in awful guilt which they are not able to justify.

There is hope!
The words "it was credited to him" were written not for him alone, but also
for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who
raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins
and was raised to life for our justification. Therefore, since we have
been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we
now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. (Romans
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless,
Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6)

What happens to a woman who has had an abortion because she belived the lies of doctors and the world telling her "it is only tissue" not a baby yet. She had the abortion and is dreadfully sorry! Repentant never to do it again, but still after 25 years deeply grieved.

There are two answers to your question.

If you are a Christian the answer is in 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

God is faithful; He forgives everything. Thank God for His forgiveness and do not live in remorse. You are commanded to rejoice.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" Philippians 4:4

You cannot rejoice and live in remorse. Your sins are forgiven! Rejoice.

If you are not a Christian then you need to receive Christ.

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—." John 1:12

"Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death." 2 Corinthians 7:10

Notice that sorrow is not a virtue. Sorrow does not pay for anything. There are two kinds of sorrow, Godly sorrow and worldly sorrow. Godly sorrow leads to salvation and leaves no regret. That is complete salvation.

Please e-mail me at ccm@moscow.com so I may send you some scriptures on how to know you are saved.

I want to hear from you again. Are you married? Do you have children?

Your friend,

Jim Wilson
