Matthew 19:18 ESV “And Jesus said, “You shall not murder…”
Editor’s Note: Throughout the scriptures, God has made it clear that shedding innocent blood is murder, and no murderer will enter heaven. In addition to the death of the unborn baby, abortion also substantially harms the women and many times, families, husbands, boyfriends and a whole sphere of relationships connected to and surrounding each abortion. Often, lifelong guilt and other social, relational, spiritual and even physical problems follow the murder of innocent babes in the womb. Pastor Jim Bakker believes that this issue, abortion, may be the single most significant issue that brings God’s judgment on this nation more than any other.
The president of Ecuador said he will resign his office if the National Assembly makes abortion legal.
The Assembly is in the process of reforming the nation’s Penal Code. He said that some members of his own governing alliance is pushing to make abortion legal.
“They can do whatever they want. I will never approve the decriminalization of abortion,” President Rafael Correa said.
Correa was first elected in 2007 and re-elected to a third term in February. He is considered a far-left wing leader who is extremely critical of the United States and other western nations. He has given asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and has offered it to accused U.S. cyberterrorist Edward Snowden.
“Where do we say we should decriminalize abortion? On the contrary, our constitution pledges to defend life from the moment of conception,” Correa said on state TV.
