The Right to Choose

The woman's "right" to choose.
The man's "right" to choose.
The baby's "right" to choose.
There are no rights to choose. The only "right" to choose is to make the right choice, to obey God.

God said, "You shall not murder." (Exodus 20:13) "Anyone who strikes a man and kills him shall surely be put to death." (Exodus 21:12)

If we think we have the right to choose contrary to the explicit command of God, then we are rebellious and must suffer the consequences.

God did not add ten amendments, a Bill of Rights, to the Ten Commandments. He did it right the first time.

Under God we have responsibilities, not "rights." We have freedom but no rights to disobey God.
