I was listening to a book. A young girl found out she was pregnant. She was distressed. As the writer described her thinking through her various options, I knew something. I knew that she wasn’t going to have an abortion. I knew it because no one ever gets an abortion in books or movies do they? I mean I’m sure there are a few out there but it pretty much never happens.
You know why? There is no story in Abortion. At least not one that anyonewould want to hear. Abortion is the end. It’s legalized murder. There’s no story in abortion because abortion ends a story. It ends a life with all of it’s limitless possibilities and countless tales. With abortion, there cannot be any “happily ever after.”
Except for in Christ. The true story of the child, both God and Man, who lived righteously and died vicariously, that story can replace all the stories and all the happiness ended by abortion. His story, the story of the cross and of an empty grave, that can give peace and forgiveness to all including those who have done what authors can’t seem to bring themselves to write about. His story can bring the happily ever after of heaven to those children. It can shine an eternal light on eyes cheated of ever blinking into the light of the sun here on earth. Because Jesus’ death is not the end of the story for those who believe in Him. It’s just the beginning.
1 Corinthians 15:20-23, “But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.”
