Surviving abortion

I'm sure that most of you have already seen this article, but my husband e-mailed it to me today and I thought about it again.

I think that one thing Christians should take away from this is that the gospel is of utmost importance in the fight against abortion. Preaching the "right to life" or the "sanctity of life" is not enough. The saddest thing to me is that the mother seemed seemed to truly love and want that child, yet had no concept of God and his right over life. To me that was the bottom line. If there is no God then life and death responsibility would fall to parents and doctors. She really felt that it was necessary to save the life of at least one and she had no God to trust in. It is breathtakingly sad. If people do not believe that there is a God that is over all and in control of all then even those who would say that they believe in life would feel that it was necessary to make these kind of decisions that belong only to God.

And yet a sovereign God intervened and let what should have brought death make life thrive instead. I'm going to pray that He captures that family for himself - what a story that would be!
