10 Things To Remember About Abortion

January 25, AD2013 6 Comments


Fighting against the evil of abortion can sometimes feel futile or tempt a person to despair, but here are ten good things to remember about the unborn, even if they are aborted.

One, unborn children have souls created by God immediately out of nothing. Although the body can be dismembered, burned, or thrown out as landfill, the soul cannot be divided, changed, or destroyed. Two, their souls are everlasting because God wants them to be happy with Him forever. Three, we can ask those souls to pray for an end to the greed and violence that sent them, as innocent and unwanted victims, away from this world.

Four, we should not worry about limbo. We are not a people of presumption; we are a people of prayer, faith, and hope. If we are blessed to be with God for all eternity, we can have certain faith that in His infinite wisdom, mercy, and love there is absolutely no chance that we will find anything unhappy, unjust, or unloving in Heaven.

Five, like all children, each unborn child killed by abortion has a guardian angel, part of a vast army of good and powerful spirits doing God’s work. Six, we can ask these angels to fight the demons that surround abortion clinics, to illuminate the minds of confused mothers, and to open the eyes of the people who kill children for profit.

Seven, like all women, the mothers who are led to abortion by the lies and temptations of demons also have guardian angels. Eight, we can ask our guardian angels to assist the guardian angels of desperate women wherever they are, to guide and inspire them, even if it is too late to save the life of the unborn child. We can pray for the souls of all the mothers who ever have, or ever will, abort their children, for we pray to an all-merciful, all-powerful, all-loving God who holds everything in existence and can forgive the greatest of sins.

Nine, we can fight against this evil anytime and anywhere with prayer. We can ask all the angels, saints, and our Our Lady, the Queen of Angels and Saints, to pray that God the Father will rebuke this evil, that Jesus Christ who is God the Son Incarnate will lead all souls to Heaven especially those in most need of His mercy, and that God the Holy Spirit will open the hearts and minds of the lost so that they may behold all that is good, beautiful, and true. If we knew what a single prayer can do, maybe we would pray without ceasing. Ten, we are on the side that already wins, that cannot lose, that will be victorious. We, adopted and faithful children of God Almighty, can never forget that.

For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore, take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day and to stand in all things perfect.” Ephesians 6:12-13

    Thanks for this post. I especially like to remember that each guardian angel is working/praying with us actively trying to change hearts and minds.
    Regarding your 4th point – I may have mis-read it but it appears awkward. Why was limbo mentioned at all if it was just abandoned to a full stop with no explanation on point?
    Also, may I just note that it is useful and proper for us not to describe the abortion mills/facilities as “clinics”. Clinics are devoted to caring for their patients and usually denotes a place where one would go to be healed not killed. We have to be particularly mindful of not losing the meaning and intent behind words which pro-abotionists manipulate and twist to accommodate their agendas.
    God bless

    I repeat also: in my opinion, nobody who is unable to prove convincingly that Herod ‘the Great’ killed the children of Betlehem is able to educate a child. I mean: as Cain slew Abel. Information about a presumable lack of historicity of the massacre Herodes is guilty of is abundant. For years I have been waiting for an answer to this question I put in public.

    I believe that ‘like all children, each unborn child has a guardian angel, part of a vast army of good and powerful spirits doing God’s work’ . But when I celebrate Christmas – and Christmas, in Austria more than in any other country, is celebrated for children – a child that is old enough to listen to the gospel of Luke – ‘2, 1-2’ – about the ENROLLMENT of Caesar Augustus has to be prepared to be told by teachers at school: ‘There was no ENROLLMENT in the year Luke is speaking of!’ Now, this means: my child is in danger, my child’s faith is in danger. And: the DEATH OF THE SOUL is worse than the death of the body – WORDS OF JESUS. The gospel of Luke – ‘2, 1-2’ – says: ‘In those days Caesar Augustus declared that everyone throughout the empire should be enrolled in the tax lists. This first enrollment occurred when Quirinius governed Syria.’ It seems to me, that an effort made in Tübingen in Germany recently to explain understandably that the ENROLLMENT did take place, is almost forgotten. Now: I think it can be proved that the enrollment did take place and that it corresponds to the enrollment of David, David’s temptation. However: for me it is, at the moment, necessary to give an answer to the question John Adler put me on the “Gästebuch of the Marktgemeinde Pöllau” – . It doesn’t look like a question, but it is a question. John Adler says that ‘THE FIFTEENTH YEAR OF RULE OF THE EMPEROR TIBERIUS’ corresponds perfectly to the ‘ENROLLMENT’ of CAESAR AUGUSTUS. The question is: to what degree could that be probable? AUGUSTUS didn’t intend to adopt TIBERIUS before LUCIUS CAESAR and GAIUS CAESAR died; but that was after Jesus was born.

  • This is great to remember so we don’t despair over what’s happening. Do you think this approach also applies to those who are miscarried?

  • Thank you Stacy. A great ten points to consider. I know it in my soul that the innocents victimized by evil are receiving God’s tender mercies. For that, I find solace.

    Terrific work on the launch!
