Children Are a Blessing, Not a Curse

In my experience, people that support (or even permit – permitting is supporting here) the willy-nilly slaughter of children we call “abortion” tend to place children squarely into one category, call it what you will:

  • burden
  • liability
  • trouble
  • problem
  • curse

Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, dresses up their child-cursing like this:

Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.

Let us note:

  • Unwanted children don’t deserve the same “fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility.”
  • “Fertility” is here a euphemism for “bearing children.”
  • “Reproductive self-determination” is a euphemism for killing the unborn.
  • “Right to privacy” means that cursed children can be killed quietly.
  • Their logic says that unwanted children would harm the “quality of life and strong family relationships.”

In other words, Planned Parenthood believes that unwanted children are a curse because their parents don’t want them. So they help false-parents kill them. PP, you see, is just following their leader.

Contra self-serving ideologies, the Bible gives a different, happier picture of children. According to Psalm 127, for instance, they’re a blessing:

Children are a blessing from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them!

They’re not a burden; they’re a boon. They’re not a liability; they’re a lovability. They’re not trouble; they’re joy. They’re not a curse; they’re a blessing.
