Social Justice and Abortion



There are so many social-justice Christians and ministries today, yet most of these do not concern themselves first with the innocent. Children are innocent, from the unborn to the nascent, toddlers, those learning to read and those reading to learn, innocent until they like us adults are able to respond to the Savior’s call.


Yet, sadly, the emphasis by these so-called social-justice Christians and ministries, is on a mother who is not thinking innocent thoughts, nor having innocent intentions; a mother who does not want to deal with the innocent life inside her. Abortion (regardless at what stage or reason) is sin, murder, and in the Bible comes under the special-circumstance heading of, innocent-blood.[1] Truly, every society that permits the murder of the unborn are weighed by God and are found wanting;[2] found deficient in God’s examination when we are measured by His plumb-line.[3] Genuine social-justice then begins and ends with God’s Word and His righteousness; to be humble before God, exercising judgement and mercy privately and in public.


Let us have real social-justice: protect life from conception till the last breath, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the orphan, assist the widow, help to heal the sick (spiritually, physically and mentally) and visit the prisoners. Let us help the stranger (alien) in our land who wants to assimilate, caution, advise and teach all law-breakers to amend their ways and give restitution to those they have harmed or wronged; be kind and truthful (even when the truth hurts), obeying the Bible in every way that we are able, having no favoritism between rich or poor, nor regard for a person’s station in life, their color or creed, whether they are man or woman. Preach true repentance of sin; in so doing, we will begin to understand real social-justice.[4]


I agree with the sad and insightful comments by Pastor John Piper (from his 2002 book: Brothers, We Are Not Professionals) when he wrote: “Many treat the dismemberment of unborn humans as an untouchable issue on the par with partisan politics. Some have bought into the incredible notion that they can be personally pro-life but publicly pro-choice or noncommittal. In response to this attitude our church sponsored an ad in the Minneapolis StarTribune with these simple words: “I am personally pro-life, but politically pro-choice” – Pontius Pilate.

The law of our land is immoral and unjust. That should be declared from tens of thousands of pulpits in America…”[5]


Friends, family, brothers and sisters in the Lord, many are deceived into believing that they are pro-life (Vice President Joe Biden, comes to mind) in their personal life, yet publicly and politically pro-choice (pro-abortion; which of course is a metaphor for: murder). This deception has laid waste to many in the Church, it permeates our politics, and it is infused into much of our so-called entertainment. This acceptance and the  ordinance of the killing of unborn children, acts as a redaction in the “document” of this nation’s beneficence and kindness; the charitableness of America has been blacked-out (as it has for many countries across the globe) because of this corporate sin, this culture of death.


Let us join in prayer for actual social-justice and let’s begin with the unborn, the true innocents in our lands.
