“It’s My Body”

The “it’s my body” mantra has been argued by promoters of the death industry since the advent of legalized abortion in America. The truth is that when a woman becomes pregnant, a separate being is formed and two bodies exist now where there was only one, and both should be involved in the discussion. Obvious scientific fact aside, this phrase did not originate with the pro-abortion culture of death and they tragically misuse it. 

Luke 22:19 And He (Jesus) took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it, and gave unto them, saying, This is My body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of Me. 

Promoters of death actually steal this line from the Creator of life, Jesus Christ Himself. Out of love He willingly gave His body for His children who were not even born yet. Jesus so loved us that He considered even suffering on the cross a joy because of the reward it would produce. The reward His suffering produced is reconciliation with His children; reconciliation with us. 

We live in a land who’s primary value seems to be avoiding suffering at all cost, even if the cost is murder. Thankfully there is a depth of life and a true reality far greater than the meager imitation that engulfs this culture. There is a truth and a love that is shed abroad in our hearts by faith to which we must cling.  

 Suffering produces joy and Jesus Himself honors the suffering that a mother endures.
