At Least We'll Save Some?

Updated: Jun 13

I’ve said it before, “at least we’ll save some.” It sounded good. It made sense. At least living human beings above a certain gestational age could potentially be protected by law to live so that not all preborn babies could be aborted all nine months of pregnancy.

Until God opened my eyes to what I was really saying.

When I started in the “prolife movement” in the 1980’s, abortion was still new on the scene. Unlike Colorado, abortion had been illegal in my state when the Supreme Court with one stroke of the pen outlawed all protections for preborn children. Well, what they did was in itself unconstitutional but it was hardly challenged. It all hinged on one question not being answered. A simple question, really. “When does life begin?”

Not sure why the attorney faltered at that point when any high school biology student should have been able to answer that, even back then. After all, it’s a biological fact (96% of biologists agree) that we are fully human and alive the moment our unique DNA is weaved together in a single cell that will replicate into every cell of our body, hundreds of cells dividing and organizing in complex ways we still don’t fully understand forming every system in our body like clockwork. We’ve since heard hearts beating by 21 days that will last a lifetime, detected brainwaves by six weeks, and watched these tiny infants with arms and legs move away from a touch to their face as we’ve discovered they are able to feel pain by seven weeks (9 week LMP).

So, why is it so wrong to try to at least save some?

First of all, it implies that we cannot save all. And that simply is not true. The same time, effort, and funds it takes to save some is exactly the same amount it takes to save all. In fact, it takes less time, effort, and funds to save all because we only have to educate the public once. And with God, all things are possible.

Secondly, by signing or voting that certain children over a certain age will live, we are also condoning by our signature or vote that certain children under that certain age we allow to die. We are signing their death sentence when we could by the same stroke of the pen save them.

Thirdly, we are assuming more responsibility and power than we have. Namely, the outcome of an election. Apart from holding the codes for a computer-generated election, we do not control, nor can we accurately predict, an outcome in the future. We are not God, yet we are claiming to have supernatural powers to see into the future through our human lens and decide for the entire state of all voters that everyone else is not as enlightened as we are to know children are alive and human from day one, and therefore we are the only ones who would actually vote for what we actually want, which is the elimination of all torture to children. What if everyone thinks that way? The problem is, most do!

What if each of us, instead, petition and vote for what is right and encourage everyone around us to do the same, and leave the results up to God? Why are we trying to manipulate the will of others? Go for what you actual want, and allow for the free will of others to do the same. They will answer to God just as you will. (Ezekiel 2 and 3)

Finally, we are forgetting God. God commands us to rescue those being dragged to slaughter. (Proverbs 24:11-12) He clearly commands, “Thou shalt not kill.”. (Exodus 20:13) We're not to kill any innocent human beings, not even some of them. Scripture has much to say about just and unjust laws and how God judges nations for them. (

We are called to be obedient and faithful to God, not responsible for the outcome, no matter how smart we think we are. We are expected by God to care about what He thinks and says of us, not what others think, no matter who they think they are.  (Galatians 1:10)

If we let one child die in order to win an election, win a vote, win someone’s approval, or keep a relationship, we are sacrificing a child on the altar of our idolatry. We are putting someone or something above our relationship with God who says, “Thou shalt not kill.”. We are willingly jeopardizing the separation our sin causes in our relationship with God for our own selfish goals, or for someone else as the lord of our life. We are showing our lack of trust and faith in God to keep His promise to work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)

God does not will that any should perish. His model prayer was that His will would be done “on earth as it is in heaven”. (Matthew 6:10) God’s law is perfect. No flaws. So why not copy God’s perfect law when trying to make good laws here on earth?  He's the Master. We're the student. Let's learn from Him.

God does not exempt some people from following the law. He doesn’t use different scales on which people deserve to live. God only divides people by righteous and evil, the “wheat from the chaff”, the “sheep from the goats”. (Matthew 3 and 25) He chastises churches for not taking a stand. He says He spews them out of His mouth! (Revelation 3:15-18) God doesn’t want us to tolerate sin. (Revelation 2:2) He doesn’t want us defending it or praising it. And God calls killing innocent human beings evil. Even if it’s just some of them.

Isn’t it time we agree with God? That we use God’s perfect and ultimate standard of what is right to base our own standard? That we stop sliding down the slippery slope of public opinion and the latest trend and which way the wind is blowing to determine the direction we will take? But rather lead public opinion. Set the trend. Let the Holy Spirit be the wind.

God says, “my people perish for lack of vision”. (Proverbs 29:18) God’s people need vision, not excuses. What will it look like when there are no more abortion clinics? When doctors save lives rather than take lives? When you can’t get a pill in the mail to kill your baby? When everyone expects that if you’re pregnant, you’re already a mother who protects her baby?

Be a trend setter! Stand out from the crowd! “Be innocent of evil and wise to what is good.” (Romans 16:19-20)

That it is “better to save some” is a human philosophy and value judgement that God never says. When our WWII military stormed the banks of Normandy, they didn’t save just some of those in concentration camps, they saved them all! If you’re going to put in the heroic efforts, prayer, and spiritual battle it takes to save any children, you might as well save them all while you’re at it!
