When we repent of sin, God forgives us. If you have had an abortion, Jesus is waiting to take you into his arms in forgiveness and love.

Our imperfections

 More verses from Psalm 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. 

17) How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
        How great is the sum of them!

We know that King David (the author of this Psalm) was not perfect. The Bible records his victories, his righteousness and his failings as well.
Not one of us has been born perfect. Some just have greater and/or different problems. We're living in an imperfect world and nothing will be perfect until Jesus comes again!
We do need to do what we can do to make life better, more tolerable, less painful and to show more compassion. But we do not have the authority from God to take the life of one who  does not measure up to our standards of perfection.
This is is a dangerous precedent and a slippery slope. Just how perfect must we be in order to earn the right to live?
 The Bible tells us that there was only one perfect one and that was Jesus. We can never measure up to His standard of perfection. Yet He allows us to live and not only for a natural lifespan; he offers us the opportunity of Eternal life! Life is of extreme importance to Jesus.

When we abort babies we are placing ourselves on a level with God, deciding who may live and who may die. Have we been ordained as the givers and the takers of life? Are we to judge who may live and who may die based upon convenience and an imperfect standard of perfection? "
Jesus said about the woman "taken in adultery", "He who is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." I ask, which of us is perfect so that we may judge whether to commit a life of an unborn baby to death?
