An Interesting Quiz

How would you respond in these situations?

  1. A preacher and his wife are very, very poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she’s pregnant with the 15th. They’re living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending she get an abortion?

  2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. Of their four children, the first is blind, the second has died, the third is deaf, the fourth has TB. She finds she’s pregnant again. Given this extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?

  3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl and she’s now pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?

  4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She’s not married. Her fiancé is not the father of the baby, and he’s upset. Would you recommend abortion?

In the first case, you would have killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists in the 19th century. In the second case, you would have killed Beethoven. In the third case, you would have killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer. If you said yes to the fourth case, you would have declared the murder of Jesus Christ!

God is the author of life, and He has givenevery single individual supreme value. Each life—whether inside or outside the womb—should therefore be valued by us. God knows the plans He has for each individual and has written in His book all the days ordained for us before one of them came to be. When we presume to know better than God who should be given life, we are putting ourselves in the place of God and are guilty of idolatry.

**Granted I’d prefer Catholic examples, but I think the point is still clear.:thumbsup: **

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!

Just the other day I was trying to give the Beethoven example to a co-worker and couldn’t explain it right. I’m going to forward this to some people now.

I saw the Discovery Health Channel’s 1-hour documentary about the Duggars, but they didn’t mention anything about the Pill. I was annoyed that DHC didn’t have the decency to let them tell their whole story (but not surprised, since hearing that would probably make hundreds of women rethink their pill-popping). Thank you for mentioning it here! :thumbsup:

There was something similar about John Paul II. Like, his mom was sick, had lots of kids, the family in poverty, etc., and then she becomes pregnant with him. Anyone know the details?
