A look at non-abortive birth control looks at how to deal with an unwanted baby, and why not to abort it, but give it life.

Birth Control is Control of your Sex Life

Most couples practice birth control, even couples that are not married yet. They simply abstain from having sex. Abortion is the absolute termination of a baby’s life. Abortion is the murder of a baby. Is that the only way of controlling a birth? God commands mankind to not fornicate, adulterate, and it is the responsibility of parents to protect the life of their children, i.e. especially babies. Abortion is evil in God’s sight because it terminates a life, and basically it is a person hiding their sexual sin by murder.

Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Leviticus 18:20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

But with God’s commands against fornication, adultery, and rape, etc., the idea is very clear that every person has a God commanded responsibility to resist temptation, and not to engage in sex with anybody that is not their lawful spouse. This is very clearly God’s position.

Matthew 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

This sin of sexual impurity (fornication) in God’s eyes extends to the thought life of people. In fact, it all begins there.

Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

God disapproves of these sexual sins, and God “gives them up to their uncleanness” when they get extreme. The sins themselves bring judgment and punishment upon them.

1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

These sexual sins cause a punishment within their own bodies. What that punish is, is not explicitly stated by Paul, but in general it is the arousal of the carnal appetite that is very hard to put away later on.

Abortion is a Sin in order to Cover up other Sins

On the issue of abortion, a person is a valid “person” in the eyes of God from the moment of their concept.

Psalms 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Psalms 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

If a fetus is a person, then taking the fetus’ life is simply murder.

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: Proverbs 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, Proverbs 6:18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, Proverbs 6:19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Abortion and all Murder is an Attack Against God

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…

God is the singular person who gives and takes away life from each person. Every single person is made in the likeness of God. If a fetus is left to develop normally within the mother, what will be produced in the end is a human being.

Genesis 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Murder is the conscience taking of another human being’s life. If an accident occurs wherein the person causing the accident did not intend for the accident to happen, then that is considered “manslaughter”, and the difference is great in our laws. Manslaughter can be overlooked, murder cannot.

There is also a great difference between an abortion and a miscarriage. Actually, a great number of pregnancies end in miscarriage. An abortion is a planned, conscious act that ends the life of the baby. A miscarriage is again an unplanned event, that neither the mother nor other people have made any plans for this event, and they have not fomented the baby’s death.

But in God’s eyes, the key here is simply not to sin sexually so that a woman becomes pregnant through that sin, and thereafter the mother or father or both want the death of the baby “because it is inconvenient for them.” It is highly hypocritical that two adults sin in fornication, causing the conception of a baby, yet that sexual sin WAS NOT INCONVENIENT FOR THEM TO DO, yet with their baby, they decide the existence of a baby from their convenient sin is inconvenient.

Confession and Being Responsible for your Sins

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The issue behind the scenes in abortions is that people sin and do not want to confess nor be responsible for their sins.

1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

Love covers sin. So exactly where is the love for the unborn baby in an abortion? The correct, biblical response to illicit sexual sins is to confess that sin (Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord) and be responsible for the consequences of that sin. Dealing with sexual sin in this way, the sin is under the blood of Christ (if the persons involved receive Jesus as their Savior), and as with all sins, we must learn not to sin, and to teach us that, God makes the consequences of sins here on earth a responsibility that we must live with. If a good artist gets drunk and falls off of a bus and loses his drawing hand, he can ask God to forgive him his sin, and God will do that, but he still will be without his hand, and he must be responsible to live with the consequence of his sins. That is just life, and it is not cruel, it is a lesson to be learned by every single person who sins (all of us then).

Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Psalms 32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. Psalms 32:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. Psalms 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

Jeremiah 2:22 For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD.

The proper response to sin is extremely important. Psalms 32:3-5 speaks to a grave problem of people who sexually sin and have an abortion. This bears heavily on the woman, but the man involved also will bear this problem. Their conscience will forever burden their spirit heavily. It is only when you confess your sin, abandon your sin, and be responsible toward the consequences of your sin that you can find forgiveness with God. Abortion is the opposite of their procedure.

Peer Pressure is not so Important as what God thinks

1 Samuel 15:24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

There is a very real pressure here from “what other people will think and say.” But in truth, that is not important. Even a sexually pure and decent girl will find some gossipers that will say bad things about her. We do not make decisions based on what others will think, but on what we should do as far as being responsible to God. Many parents never teach their children this point, and that is why the world is so messed up today.

But in the verse above, Saul made bad decisions because “he worried what the people would say”. The clamor of the people for something to be done is what pressured Saul to sin. We must not fall into the same situation.

People who consider or get abortions do not understand the situation.

Psalms 51:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Psalms 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Psalms 51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Psalms 51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Psalms 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

ALL SIN is against God. You must give account to God one day for what you have done. But as with King David, you must seek forgiveness of your sin WITH GOD. He is the one you must give an accounting to, not “people” who have no right to judge over you. But the keys here are confession and repentance, or abandonment of that sin.

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Let’s be truthful here. There is no such thing as “sweeping your sins under the rug.” We deal with sin openly and with our Judge, God. It is like stealing. Putting it back is not really going to fix the problem. Open confession and owning up to what you have done, restoring what has been broken or stolen, is part of repentance. But covering up the sin is not correct. We cover up the sin only by placing that sin under the blood of Christ, and that only happens once a person has confessed and repented of that sin and has the blood of Jesus to cleanse him or her from all sins.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

A woman’s right to choose.

Every woman can choose to not have sex if she doesn’t want babies. What the real issue is people want to have sex, and if that act produces a pregnancy, they what to deny that baby the right to live. Selfishness is what is at issue.

Society is supposed to close their eyes to what is going on, but on the abuse of women by men, we are supposed to open our eyes and be excessively aggressive with men abusing women. Why don’t we do the same for mothers abusing their babies?

A Baby’s Right to Life

Luke 18:15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

The view of Jesus towards babies and children is that they have a right to grow and understand and know of God’s salvation like anybody else. An abortion stops that process before the baby can even have a change to know the Savior.

Doing the Right Thing

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

God wants you to confess and repent, be responsible for the sins that you have done, abandoning them, and living righteously in God’s sight. God will give you the strength to do what is right.
