The Horrifying Truth About Abortion and Why it Matters

By: Bethany Baird

I watched my computer screen in horror as a tray filled with bloody pieces of a freshly murdered baby parts came into view.

“How can this be happening? How can the average person think that abortion (killing babies) is totally acceptable? How can these people talk about pieces of bloody, mangled baby parts with zero care or emotion? How is this the world I live in?”

Questions and thoughts ran through my mind as I tried to process what I was seeing on the video.

If you’re in favor of life and/or live in America you probably know exactly what I’m talking about. But for those of you who don’t, let me fill you in.

Undercover in Planned Parenthood

Over the past several weeks a group of pro life researchers has launched several secretly filmed videos.

The videos contain conversations with top Planned Parenthood (the largest baby murdering facility in America) executives discussing the possibility of joining forces to sell baby body parts.

The videos then take you inside several Planned Parenthood clinics and show what takes place behind closed doors. We, as the viewers, are able to see freshly aborted babies and watch as the workers discuss how much money they could get out of each body part.

Every piece has a price. Head. Legs. Brain. Eyeballs. Arms. Liver.

The content is beyond horrifying and made me wonder how in the world abortion is legal! I personally couldn’t even watch all of the content in the videos because it was soo sad. The reality of abortion is a hard pill to swallow, but it needs to be swallowed.

I am so grateful for the people behind those videos. They are taking drastic measures to fight for the unborn and speak for the babies who don’t have a voice.

They get it.

They realize that millions upon millions of babies are killed every single year throughout the world. They understand that babies are being murdered on a daily basis in their very own cities and down the street from their houses.

If babies had a chance to talk, I’m sure they would be thanking those people. Thanking them for caring about their little lives. Thanking them for taking a stand and speaking up. Thanking them for showing love and care through their actions.

Could those little babies say the same for us?

Could the babies that don’t have a voice yet thank us for taking a stand? Could they thank us for acknowledging they (even though they are little babies) are fully human? Could they thank us for doing something *anything* to speak out against abortion?

The sad reality is that most of us are against abortion, but we do little to nothing to fight against it. Most of us are sooo caught up in ourselves (our lives, our plans, our problems) that we have no time to be concerned with the greatest evil happening around us.

We as Christian girls need to wake up and realize that abortion is horrendous.

Abortion is an onslaught against the youngest, most innocent and most helpless humans. Those little humans are NOT being “gently” put to rest. They are being killed in the most gruesome ways (being torn apart and burned inside the womb).

Despite the fact that abortion is totally barbaric, it’s also completely anti-biblical and anti-God.

Abortion is totally anti-biblical. Here’s why:

1. Abortion is a direct attack against God. Humans are the only living beings created in the image of God. When a baby is intentionally murdered, an image bearer of God is being destroyed.

2. Babies are knitted together by God inside their mother’s womb. Abortion goes into the womb and kills the baby. “For you formed my inward parts you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well” (Psalm 13:13-14). Abortion is destroying the very thing God is creating.

3. Children are a blessing, reward and a heritage, they should be welcomed and cherished. “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward” (Psalm 127:3).

4. Abortion is murder. There is no way around it. “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13) People like to say abortion is a part of “women’s health,” “a woman’s right to choice,” “loving” or whatever else. The facts can’t be changed though. A woman goes into the clinic with a baby in her womb and comes out without it. The woman’s life continues on and the baby’s was ended.

A Challenge

I’m hoping that this blog post will motivate each one of you to take some sort of action. It may not be filming undercover videos but you can do something. Babies are being murdered every day and they don’t have a voice to defend themselves. If we as Christian girls don’t stand up and speak out against this incredible evil, who will?

What You Can do to Help

1. Have Conviction.

Know what you believe about abortion. If you don’t have a strong conviction in this area you won’t have a passion to fight against it. Make sure to pull your truth straight from the Bible and build your convictions off of that.

2. Stand up for the truth.

Don’t be ashamed of the truth. Stand up for life and be willing to say what you believe. Don’t shy away from the truth just because it’s not popular and goes against the norm.

3. Encourage purity amongst your friends.

85% of women who get abortions are not married. Purity is a huge problem in our generation. Set up boundaries of protection for yourself and take a stand for purity amongst your friends. Encourage the girls around you to save sex for marriage.

4. Don’t just feel bad. Do something!

I challenge you to do something. Don’t brush this under the rug and ignore the reality of it. Abortion needs to be fought against and we are the ones to do it.

There are so many ways that we as young women can take a stand. Pro life counseling centers are scattered all across the world. You can volunteer in a pro life center. You can stand in front of abortion clinics and pray or try to counsel the girls going in. You can teach the girls younger than you about purity. You can sign the petition to defund Planned Parenthood. You can pray!

Let’s Wrap it Up

    Thanks for the eye opener Bethany! By God’s grace in the country where I am from and the country that I live in abortion is illegal. So, Abortion isn’t something I’m too familiar with as part of life’s issues, so thanks for bringing planned parenthood in america to my attention, I’ll definitely be praying about it on this side of the world.

  • Rachel

    This is sick!! People think that a baby is just tissue, but truth is, a baby starts emitting brain waves within the first month of being in the mothers womb. I every year along with my youth group of about 25 kids and 200 other people from my county go to the March 4 Life in D.C. and we get treated like we are terrorists. Snipers on the buildings, people trying to start fights, and Homeland Security flying over in helicopters. Geez people we just want you to stop being the terrorists, by killing millions of little baby Americans every year. Please help us fight to stop these merciless killings!! If you are joining the fight please like my post so I know that I’m not the only person who cares about these precious babies!!!!!

    • First Amendment

      Actually, the snipers are for your protection. Women who choose to get abortions are not terrorists. Case closed.

  • BR!ANNAH

    Its so sad to see how our generation is just decaying more and more every second that passes by. And the thing that I dislike the most is that its illegal to kill certain animals but to kill babies its ok, its alright…NO!!! Thats just plainly messed up! God has purpose with that baby. That baby has a destiny and according to our generation its no big deal to take that away from them…but the truth is that it IS a big deal. Your murdering that little, inocent baby whom God took the time to create in His own image. This is something to stand up againt and not pass as unotice.

  • Belle

    Dear Bethany I’m so glad you covered this subject this is a big issue and needs to end I also think of what Michelle Dugger said about this she said it was a baby houlacaust I totally agree and I’m glad you spoke up to defeat this murdering issue and thanks for the Bible verses

  • Thank you so much for writing this. I pray that this horror will become known to all for what it really is! Thank you for making it more known to the public.

  • Charlotte

    I started watching the video, then it was so horrible that I read the transcripts instead. It’s almost unbearable seeing what’s going on! Thank you for defending what God has deemed precious from the beginning of time!

  • Guest

    I am a pro-life person but the real issue with planned parenthood was that these abortion practices weren’t even spoken of until now. We must not forget that girls sometimes get abortions because they don’t think or know about the other options. They think of it as a sense of birth control. Many of those woman end up with depression and try to kill themselves. We must pray for those women who do these acts because they are unknowingly told by the government that is it okay to do so. We also must pray for women who had abortions at planned parenthood and had no idea that this was going on. If any of those woman had a clue, I could guarantee that many of them wouldn’t go through with it. We must also pray that the leaders of our government take a stand for what they are against instead of their own agendas. This is a very difficult situation but we must understand that these are people who don’t know who God is. If we are open to towards the woman who have abortions or feel terrible about these issues, they could find God. Ultimately our prayers are heard by our father and he has already written this part in history. God will deal with this company, justly, like he always had and always will.

    I’m against abortion 100%, but what is your opinion when it is a medical emergency and if something isn’t done you and the baby will die and maybe a C-section isn’t an option. I’ve seen many people bring this up and was just wondering what your thoughts were.

    • Abby

      i dont think that really classifies as abortion, which is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks. I think it’s more along the lines of self defense, if both might die it’s just a matter of which one, and that is a tough choice to make.

    • Roni

      That is mostly a liberal argument that is used to make pro-lifers out to be the bad guys. With how advanced we are in the medical field, what your describing is an EXTREMELY rare accurance. God bless!

      • First Amendment

        You misspelled “occurrence.” Actually, liberals AND conservatives tend to agree that abortion should be permitted in the case of rape, incest, or danger to the mother. The conservatives that don’t agree are the ones no one elects! Ha!

  • Dolly

    They love that title, “women’s health”. How is it healthy to kill something you made?

    Thank you for writing this. The truth needs to be exposed.

    • First Amendment

      It’s women’s health because it’s a women’s choice. It’s not healthy to tell a woman that she must deliver a child if she doesn’t want to. The truth was exposed when Planned Parenthood was cleared of the charges brought against it.

      • Dolly

        First of all, First Amendment, since when did “health” and “choice” become synonymous? These two subjects are entirely unrelated.

        Secondly, the only reason PP was cleared is because they have so many politicians in their back pockets. Perhaps you should look up the founder of PP. Take a look at what a great woman she was. She frequently killed black babies not only because she was extremely racist, but also was a devoted geneticist. Great gal.

        I will never support abortion because God created me, you, and every other person out there. I refuse to condone murder (because that is what it is). You can tell me over and over again that it’s okay to have an abortion, but I am firm in my belief that God gives us life, and we shouldn’t take it away from helpless babies in the womb.

        • First Amendment

          First of all, you can’t stop women from having abortions.

          Second of all, PP was cleared because the people who tried to “expose” it broke the law and a jury felt that PP was more right than not. Your anti-abortion warriors weren’t so great after all. Margaret Sanger’s past is of little relevance– Cecil Rhodes, founder of the Rhodes Scholarship, was also a racist. Thomas Jefferson was a slaveowner. Anti-blackness was a part of American history that we have changed since Sanger, Rhodes, and Jefferson.

          I will always support a woman’s right to choose because although I would not choose to get an abortion, I am in no position to tell another woman what she can or cannot do with her body.

          Pro-life is anti-choice.

          • Dolly

            Pro-choice is anti-life.

          • First Amendment

            It seems you have forgotten what constitutes a choice.
            Here is the definition: “an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.”

            So, we have two choices: abortion or no abortion. Pro-choice is not anti-life because that would mean a choice does not exist. The whole idea behind pro-choice is that no one can tell someone else what to do. If we forced people to have abortions, that would also be anti-choice.

            You can CHOOSE to NOT HAVE AN ABORTION. THAT IS A CHOICE, TOO.

            I suggest you consider the logic of your comments before posting them so the Internet.

          • Dolly

            You are right, it is a choice to keep or not keep the baby. The irony of this though is that the baby has no choice over their life. I doubt that given the choice, that he or she would choose that. It is illogical to kill something you created.

          • First Amendment

            A fetus is not alive, but even if it were, the “right to life” doesn’t imply the right to use someone else’s body. People can refuse to donate their organs or give blood even if doing so would save someone else’s life.

            The fetus, having yet to develop an opinion on the matter, can’t make a choice about its life. The mother, however, can make a choice about what happens to the fetus occupying her body.

            It is illogical to let your personal beliefs, which are contradictory to federal law, dictate the outcome of the very personal choice pregnant women must make.

    How wicked and cruel our culture is! My strongest desire, outside of being closer to God, is to have a family. It’s so sad that people who want children cannot have them, and some people just throw their gift of a child away!! I know that it’s in God’s hands, but I can’t help but feel so sorrowful about this subject.

    @disqus_ktG2KgsE06:disqus I know a Christian lady who got cancer while she was pregnant. Her doctors urged her to have an abortion because they didn’t know if her body could stand it. She bravely said “no” and carried the baby full term. After giving birth, she took cancer treatments, and won her battle. She has been cancer free for quite some time now, and her child is happy and healthy 🙂 It’s truly amazing how God works!

  • First Amendment

    Hate to break it to you, but those videos got your pro-life group in trouble. How ironic!

    This was taken from CNN:
    “David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted for tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony, and Daleiden was also indicted on the count of prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs, a class A misdemeanor, according to the Harris County district attorney.”

    Planned Parenthood was cleared of the charges brought against it.

    This post is so biased, it’s almost unreadable. Have a little class. Planned Parenthood is not a “baby murdering facility.” Only 2% of the work it does are abortions. The other 98% include screenings, birth control, free diagnoses, and medical exams.

  • First Amendment

    Abortion does not equal the Holocaust.

    We need to stand up against abortion. Millions of innocent baby’s are being killed. Most of us can’t go in and take secret videos, but there are company’s and organizations that support Planned Parenthood and Abortion that we can stop buying things from. FritoLay and Starbucks are two major supporters. If we all banded together and stopped buying things from company’s that support this than we would send a major message to the world. We may think that “o I can’t make that much of a difference not buying from these company’s, there’s so many other people that still buy from there.” And so we all still support it thinking that our little bit of money won’t make that much of a difference. But if we all had the mind set of “Even if I stand alone on this I’m still going to stand up for what is right. Then I think we could make a difference. Money is a gift from God and we are to be good stewards of what God has given to us. .

    • Katie

      I will continue to support places like that because Planned Parenthood does more good than bad, by far. Besides, God has killed way more people than PP has.

  • Lexi

    Wow. This is so sad. These poor babies. This makes me so,so sad. 🙁

  • A Christian

    It’s horrible that abortion nowadays is a “woman’s right”, It certainly is not a “right,” because you are murdering! Under no circumstance should an abortion should be legal. It’s truly disgusting what our nation puts forward. I’ll try to find a way to make a stand and I’ll continue to keep it on my prayer list.
