The Mayo Clinic is probably one of the most reknown medical facilities in the world. I was on their website today and the Lord truly blessed me with the research. I am a firm believer that any baby is a human life even at the point of conception. However, for those of you who support abortion, I plead with you to look at this logically.
According to the Mayo Clinic, during the week after fertilization, the blastocyst (fertilized egg) attaches itself to the uterine wall. This marks the week where the embryonic period begins and this is:
“when the baby’s brain, spinal cord, heart and other organ begin to form. Your baby is now 1/25 of an inch long. (emphasis mine)
Notice how Mayo Clinic calls this embryo a baby? It’s so convenient for the world to have abortions when they are told that this embryo or fetus is not “really” a human life. However, what does the word of God say?
The Scripture says that the life of flesh is in the blood. (Lev 17:11a) For the life of the flesh is in the blood: When does blood actually begin to flow during the gestation period? According to the Mayo Clinic,
Week 5: Baby’s heart begins to beat – Your baby at week five (three weeks after conception)
At week five, your baby is 1/17 of an inch long — about the size of the tip of a pen.
This week, your baby’s heart and circulatory system are taking shape. Your baby’s blood vessels will complete a circuit, and his or her heart will begin to beat. Although you won’t be able to hear it yet, the motion of your baby’s beating heart may be detected with an ultrasound exam.
With these changes, blood circulation begins — making the circulatory system the first functioning organ system. (emphasis mine)
I have emphasized the word “baby” throughout this quote from Mayo Clinic’s website to show you that even they consider this to be a baby. Did the Mayo Clinic really mean to call this a baby or was it convenient?
When it is inconvenient (for those proponents of abortion), this baby is considered a fetus. To the woman guilty of desiring an abortion, this detaches her from any emotional tie to her baby. She views this as a choice and not a baby. The Bible says that life begins with the blood of all flesh – even the Mayo Clinic says that this baby’s (this “life”) circulatory system and heart are now working! Thus we have a living, human life form – a precious and beautiful baby!
What do you do with this? Of course, if you want to justify your sin of murder, you would say that you do not believe the Bible. You would further say that there is no God. (Psa 53:1) [To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
(Psa 10:13) Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. The murderer will be required to pay for the spilt blood of an aborted child. God said, (Exo 20:13) Thou shalt not kill. It will be required of you to pay for this sin, my friend. (Exo 21:12) He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death. Murder is the killing of human life. Life begins with the beating heart, therefore, it stands to reason that this life ceases when the heart stops beating.
This baby is surely considered a living being according to God’s word. But if you need the world’s opinion, the Mayo Clinic states that this baby’s heart is beating and its brain is functioning. Ironically, the world states that when the heart and brain stop functioning, a human life has died. Why then can’t the world reverse this thought process and say that life actually began with the brain and heart functioning? They cannot because that would mean that they have allowed legalized murder and they are guilty themselves of murder! As of this date (June 2011), New York City has a 70% abortion rate, according to the CDC. Each mother and father that has agreed to an abortion is a murderer. Each doctor and nurse who has participated in abortions is guilty of murder!
The life is in the blood – The Mayo Clinic has unknowingly agreed with the Word of God. How ironic. My friend, if you have had an abortion, I ask that you write to me. The Lord Jesus is ready to forgive you of your sins and you can be born again in newness of life. (John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
If you are contemplating an abortion, won’t you wait? Please write to me! Let me show you what God’s Word has to say. If you are under conviction, praise the Lord God Almighty. It is not too late to be born again! Today is the day! Won’t you come to Jesus now, repent of your sin and be saved? (Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
