Abortion is not health care, reader says

There is much confusion today as to what is good for us in mind, body and soul.

The enemy of our souls continues to confuse many as to what is good and what is not. You could say that SIN is the abbreviation for “Self-Inflicted Nonsense.” Most have not discovered this in their spiritual lives, which would help them make good choices to grow in virtue, instead of assumed-to-be good choices that are, in fact, causing most to grow in vice.

The Plan B abortion pill has been snuck into many pharmacies and is being sold over or behind the counters. Whether the stores and various chains know it or not, in the eyes of God, they are accomplices to murder if someone takes the Plan B Pill and the unborn child dies. In case you did not know, it is designed to do just that—kill a baby.

Blessed Teresa of Kolkata has been attributed as saying, “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” In God’s Word, St. Paul and St. John encourage us to “test the spirits” (1 Thes 5:21 and 1 Jn 4:1) for a reason. Satan loves to confuse us so that we make poor choices.

“Family-friendly” pharmacies have, in many cases, been lead to believe that the Plan B pill is a good choice, and many sell it in the disguise of “health care” and it being a good solution to a “problem.” The makers and sellers of this pill pocket about $50 each purchase. If chain founders like Barny Kroger were alive today, they would very likely not be involved in killing babies for profit. He did not start that chain of “family-friendly” stores for that reason—or to sell contraceptives, either.

Thank God that change is possible through prayer, and that the Christian values that this nation was founded upon still prevail. It is said that “Satan advances when men of good will do nothing.”

We need to make sure that we are not caught up in Satan’s noose, for God is giving him all the slack on the leash he needs to hang himself.

Those who have chosen to follow Jesus and continue to grow in a healthy prayer life can, by the grace of God, see that Satan makes his lies obvious in our culture. Pray, pray, pray, especially during and after this holy Easter season, for we are all created and called to be saints in this short life.

“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chr 7:14).
