The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Choice of a Child's Gender

Australian politicians who voted that women SHOULD have the choice to murder their unborn child with the abortion pill RU486 all agree that women SHOULD NOT have the choice to predetermine a child's gender. Figure this one out??

Choice of a Child's Gender

If they are supposedly standing up for the woman's right to choose. You would think that if they allow murder surely they would be consistent and allow a woman the right to choose the gender. After all this is no where as bad as murder.

The devil will make the most wicked things acceptable by giving people a halo to polish in other areas.

already the question is asked about termination if an expectant mother finds out her child is aflicted with down syndrome(ds). This is discovered at about 10-12 weeks after conception at the first scan of a baby.
the same doctor might ask
"would you like to know the sex of your baby?"
"it appears that the foetus will be have ds if carried to full term. We need to condider your options - termination"

This method of determining Gender and then aborting the baby is the worst form.

What the Australian Politicians were consulting in my understanding was giving the parents the ability to chose the sex of the child before conception.

"Procedures exist that can largely separate sperm that carry the Y chromosome from those that carry the X chromosome"

This means you can almost be guarenteed of a girl before conception. (over 90%)

As you can see this is not murder however it does have long term ethical considerations which our politicians strongly disagree with yet they agree with abortion.

I was familiar with the method you were describing but was drawing to attention the fact that it is morally acceptable (and even encouraged sometimes) to kill a physically handicapped child for no other reason than their disability making life more difficult for the parents to be, but not to encourage the conception of one gender above another???

The politicians are taking the "safe" road most likely - it's easier to do that than make a real decision. Abortions have been going on for years - the drugs is just another way to do it. Deciding the gender of your child? Never been done... thus too risky for most politicians.

I think abortionists fall into Romans 1, somehow. Thus, they can be described as, "professing themselves to be wise, they became fools."

I question the rightness of gender determination, however. There are many things that can be done in the medical profession that sometimes I wonder if they should be done.

At times I think the medical industry may be the newest tower of Babel.

"At times I think the medical industry may be the newest tower of Babel."
With communcations technologies the world is getting smaller and smaller. Scientists ans doctors (or specialists in any field) can now all work together very easily.

But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."

It cirtainly is heading that way with all the advancements in the medical sciences.

No doubt...that is odd...and sad.

Albert Mohler mentioned on his show the other day that a mayor had the bodies of two zoo bears (one attacked a child) exumed in order to honor them with a "proper" burial or ceremony (something like that). Anyway, a local police chief said something to the effect that many police men had died in duty and never received that kind of treatment.

You have considered children with diseases and those who endanger their mother's lives through no fault of their own, but it seems to me all considerations so far have been assuming consentual sex. What about women who fall pregnant from rape?

The only thing worse emotionally to deal with for a woman than rape, I would imagine, would be a pregnancy from a rape.
I believe that life begins at conception, so even though it would be heartbreaking, it is my belief that the only options morally available are
1. adoption.
2. keeping the child.
I personally know a woman who has kept the suspected child of a rape (never tested because her and her husband dont want to know) while I do not know the inner pain and issues this has caused, her family is functional and they love all their chilren the same.

Rape is the crime of the father and not the child, so the father must be punnished not the child.
While I disagree with abortion, I do support capital punishment. Violent, predatory rape is a crime I believe deserves capital punishment.

Satan will do all the possible way to push God's people to commit sin. That is his main objective on this planet earth to destroy the human's heart. Satan is our enemy not the people who committed murder or who committed abortion.

As a woman Christian, I do believe that committing abortion is a personal choice but of course I am against to it. Abortion is personal crime. It is one of God's Ten Commandments.

Again, abortion is another kind of free choice to do. God gave us the freewill. To decide, to choose for what is good or what is bad. But again, I believe that if we are not in God's place - it possible to a woman to choose or to decide by her own way, what is best for. If a woman decided to go her own way not God's way. Well, there is a consequence for that to face. I am a single woman Christian, I pray for women out there, and hope before making a decision like this consult and ask God’s wisdom to help them to decide for what is right.

Our society is now getting worse from politician and even other church. No offense, but too much freedom doesn’t mean for “positive”. There are some other States allowing gay marriage because they think they should give their rights like other normal couples do– well, that is another thing of immorality and that would be another issue.

We sometimes talk about all these, it is good to discuss but in the middle of our discussion, did we ever conclude and ask "WHY?" and did we ask what is something wrong in our society? There must be something missing why?

Let me end my comment for this word “missing foundation” and let you guys think, for sure you know what I meant.

There is my contribution for this topic.

God bless you!
