Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible,22049,24333802-5001028,00.html ABORTION BILL PASSES LOWER HOUSE September 12, 2008 – AUSTRALIA (Edited by DCB) Victoria’s “…contentious abortion reform bill has passed its third and final reading in the lower house following another marathon session in state parliament…” This bill “seeks to decriminalise abortion up to 24 weeks' gestation.” After these 24 weeks a woman then must “…have the support and approval of two medical practitioners for an abortion.”

Sadly this bill was said to have passed “with applause from MPs…with 48 in favour and 28 against following a debate that consumed the entire sitting day.” It now goes to the Victorian upper house for consideration.  

It is hard to imagine elected government officials applauding a bill to kill the unborn! Yet, with this FURTHER liberlisation of the law to comit murder, Associate Professor Justin Oakley, Monash University’s Centre for Human Bioethics, does not agree with the Victorian law stipulating that after 24 weeks approval from two medical practitioners must be obtained. He said “A woman has the right to say what should happen to her own body and I don’t think because a foetus could be born alive that she therefore loses that right.”[1]  THAT RIGHT!

The killing, the murder of the unborn is a disgrace to any nation and Australia, the United States and many other nations are guilty of this horrific crime. How many babies are murdered in Australia each year? Surprisingly “it is impossible to accurately quantify the number of abortions which take place in Australia. This is because there is no national data collection on abortion, there is no uniform method of data collection, collation or publication across the states and territories, and the data sources that are available all have several significant limitations.”[2] This is such an insignificant event that the Australian government has “no uniform data collection” for the murder of the unborn!!!

Governments have often put themselves above God and His Word. In Biblical history we read in Matthew 2:16 that “Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.”

In post Bible history, Hitler and those medical practitioners working with him, like Herod, conducted wholesale slaughter of human life without any sign of remorse. A good question that might be asked here isCan You draw a parallel between today’s abortionists and the Nazi doctors?[3]

Yes! There is a direct parallel between the two holocausts, neither of which could have happened without doctors. Excerpted from The Abortion Holocaust, W. Brennan, Landmark Press, 1983.



"A doctor may interrupt a pregnancy when it ‘threatens the life or health of the mother [and] an unborn child that is likely to present hereditary and transmissible defects may be destroyed.’" (German Penal Code and Hamburg Eugenics Court, 1933) "A licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes that pregnancy would gravely impair the physical or mental health of the mother or that the child would be born with grave physical or mental defects." (American Law Institute Model Penal Code, 1962)
"Only persons of ‘German or related blood’ can be citizens; this does not include Jews." (Reich Citizenship Law, 1935) "The word ‘person’ as used in the fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn." ( U.S. Supreme Court, Roe vs. Wade, 1973)
"The authority of physicians is enlarged to include the responsibility for according a ‘mercy death [to] incurables.’ " (Hitler’s Euthanasia Order, Sept. 1939) "The abortion decision in all its aspects is inherently and primarily a medical decision and basic responsibility for it must rest with the physician." (U.S. Supreme Court, Roe vs. Wade, 1973)

As Victoria seeks to further liberlise the murder of the unborn believing this is simply furthering a woman’s reproductive rights, it is interesting that the very place where the Australian Federal Parliament is located, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), “there are no laws governing abortion.”[4] The very seat of Australian Federal power is open for the wholesale slaughter of the unbrn!

However, no country’s laws are above the words of God. Proverbs 14:34 says “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” The sweet Psalmist of Israel wrote in Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Again the Psalmist said in 127:3 “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” In the Treasury of David Spurgeon remarks “Where society is rightly ordered children are regarded, not as an incumbrance, but as an inheritance; and they are received, not with regret, but as a reward.”

Does the term an “unexpected” pregnancy say something about people and their morals? Do not people yet understand that when two people come together in a sexual relationtionship one of the possible results is a child? Even the Victorian Government admits this when they tell a parent or carer that one of the important points of sex education concerns “Pregnancy, including options such as abortion, adoption or parenting.”[5] Note the first option given is abortion!

However, God’s Word says “the fruit of the womb is his reward” and God cannot lie! A child is a reward from God Himself and not an incumberance! A child is a blessing not a curse! There is no other option other than giving birth and then and only then may an unmarried girl choose the latter two, adoption or parenting.

It is also worth considering Luke 1:24-26 “And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men. 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.”  Was John Baptist a person now having been in the womb six months? According to God he was but not according to the Victorian government or the ACT. 

Then consider Luke 1:39-44 “And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; 40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”This fruit within the womb of Elizabeth leaped for joy when Mary, the mother of Jesus, spoke! The fruit of the womb is human life from conception.   

Then consider Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Humans are “fearfully and wonderfully made” in “the image of God”. Man is unique among all God’s creation, Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Someday God will say to the abortionists “What hast thou done?” for the voices of the blood of the millions of aborted unborn children crieth unto “me from the ground”Genesis 4:10.   

The problem since Genesis Chapter 3 has been man’s rebellion against His Maker and abortion is simply a product of that rebellion. Genesis 6:5 says, “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” One fruit of the wickedness of man is abortion!

Continue to pray for those elected government officials and medical practitioners involved in this horrible crime against God and man for “…it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment Hebrews 9:27 and “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” Hebrews 10:31.

Because of Grace and Calvary,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
