The Right to Life

18 08 2012

I had just finished watching the Lord of the Rings. In the movie Frodo tells Gandalf that Gollum deserves to die. Gandalf tells Frodo that many people deserve to die, just as many people who have died deserves to live. He continues on to say that if we can’t change the latter, then what right do we have to change the previous.

I got to thinking, Paul tells us in Romans that “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23. He also said, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

In Jesus’ eyes, we all deserve death because of sin, yet Jesus chooses to offer us life. Shouldn’t we as a people have that same attitude toward unborn babies? Don’t unborn babies have the same right to life as we have? If Jesus can look at us and offer us life instead of death, shouldn’t we as a people do the same for unborn babies.

We should strive to be like Jesus and offer life to unborn babies instead of death.
