Aborting Girl Babies- it's just Wrong!!

It's pretty hard to believe and very sad indeed to hear that here in Canada, people are aborting girl babies just because they are female. I heard about it again a couple of days ago on my local radio station - a discussion on this very topic. I find it very hard to hear these kinds of stories. I am firmly opposed to abortion and in my opinion this should not be happening here in Canada. It is unimaginable to think that anyone could disregard life like that.

According to the radio story, this practice of aborting a girl baby is being done in greater proportions by immigrant families, where in their home countries this type of abortion is an acceptable practice.  It was reported that it is even showing up in the statisical data that has been collected by the government of Canada. It was said that these immigrant families see the birth of a daughter  as a burden. They worry that a daughter will somehow dishonor the family - perhaps by adapting to the secular culture of Canada.  The daughter will not make the family's riches increase while a son will be able to earn a higher income and so the family's riches will increase and he  will be able to take care of the elderly in the family. The radio story went on to say that the birth of a son is preferred as the family name can be carried on to the next generation through a son. A son is considered a benefit to the family much like a retirement plan is a benefit to be desired.
The report stated that some hospitals in Canada are trying to discourage this practice of aborting the baby girls. If the hospital becomes aware that a family is looking to know the gender of the child simply for a possible gender based abortion, the medical professionals are refusing to inform the parents of the gender of the child until such a time as abortion would be illegal here. The problem obviously lies with the fact that people who favor abortion do not place value on the unborn human baby's life.
God is the giver of life. It is his decision to create a new life. God is the one who made us all and He is the one who invented the family.  No one should take it upon themselves to make the choice to end a human life that God has lovingly created. The Bible says very clearly that we shall not kill or murder anyone. Deuteronomy 5: 17  Thou shalt not kill.
Just to prove to everyone that God values human life, He writes in Revelation 13:10  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
I would encourage anyone who is looking to have an abortion to stop that idea from going any further and rather seek help from a Christian friend and Pastor. Pray to the Lord God in Heaven, He will help you in your situation when you seek Him with your whole heart.
