BLOOD IN THY SKIRTS

In the past few days, there's been a story on the Internet of a woman who filmed her own abortion to show the world "how cool" it is.

Several verses in the Bible address this, starting with Jeremiah 2: 34, 35:

Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.

Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.

Ezekiel 16: 35-38:

Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord:

Thus saith the Lord God; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;

Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

Nahum 3:5, 6:

Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.

And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.

Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

There are more verses, but I think these suffice to show that Jehovah considers the unborn to be children and their blood shed to be innocent blood.   He knows them, even in the womb.

Interesting that Jeremiah 2:34 says, ". . . I have not found it by secret search . . . ", How literal -- in this instance, no one had to go looking for this story, this woman put it out there on the Internet for everybody to see. As Ezekiel says all her lovers and those who hate her will gather round about so that they see, discover, her nakedness. ANYBODY, friend or foe, who knows this woman can now watch and see what she has done, and that she feels no shame for what she has done.

Nahum tells us that her skirts are pulled up to her face so that she shows the nations of the world her nakedness and her shame. How literal, again -- for this woman, just off camera has her skirts (surgical drape) lifted up and she shows the nations her nakedness (bares her genitals) so that a child's life could be taken.

And, by the way, "child" is HER word, not mine though I certainly agree.  In the article linked to below, the woman says she did this because wasn't ready to have "children." She doesn't say she wasn't ready to have "fetal tissue," she says she wasn't ready to have "children." And where is the rape? the incest? the health of the mother? -- the arguments that pro-abortion advocates always try to use against those who are pro-life? It's missing here because that isn't why this woman was having her unborn child's life ended -- she ended it because she just didn't want it. She even admits she became pregnant because she was "irresponsible."  And her goal is that other women will do the same and to not feel bad about it -- it's nothing.

Ezekiel says that women who "shed blood" are judged, and abortion is the shedding of blood.

Yes, save the hate emails -- I know that these verses are symbolic, but even Ezekiel was to lie for so many days on his right side then his left to physically illustrate a spiritual time span. (Ezekiel 4) It seems to me that in some ways that this woman's abortion seems to be a parable of where we are at spiritually in this country; we are at a place where women are now putting their abortions on the Internet and proclaiming, and many cheer and agree, that they have done nothing wrong, that they are innocent of shedding blood.

The Bible says otherwise.

It is difficult to write a post about this because the woman's cavalier attitude towards ending the life of her child is very difficult to fathom. She needs prayer because she is in a very dark place and completely oblivious to it. May she come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I've written it before and I will write it again -- a woman who comes to the place where she understands that abortion is murder CAN BE FORGIVEN if she repents of her sin and accepts Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. And yes sin is always "cool," even the sin of murder, until one sees the sin as Jesus sees it, and then it becomes a source of deep shame and remorse. It's what brings us to the "old, rugged cross."
