Well, I recently saw an article that just made me feel sick. Apparently, there is a browser-based video game, “Trapped,” in which “players follow a simulation of someone who wants to have an abortion.” It’s supposed to show how difficult it can be for some women to get an abortion. The game’s programmer says she hopes “players of the game would learn that the legality of abortion doesn’t help people who can’t afford them.” She also hopes it will inspire people to give to “abortion funds.”
Abortion is really “child sacrifice to the god of self.”
Essentially, this woman wants easier, cheaper, and quicker abortions for women—easier, cheaper, and quicker ways to murder unborn children. Abortion cheapens human life and elevates the mother’s supposed “right” to choose death over the right of the child—a unique human being made in the image of God—to have life! But when we start with God’s Word, we know every human being—no matter their size or level of development or dependency—has value and dignity that come from being made in God’s image. As I’ve often stated, abortion is really “child sacrifice to the god of self.” It is no different from the pagan cultures of ancient times that sacrificed their children to pagan gods.
I encourage people to support pro-life—not pro-murder. (In fact, let’s use “pro-murder” instead of “pro-choice” to make it clear what this really means.) Support your local pregnancy center. Pro-life groups genuinely care for women, their families, and their unborn children. They want to see them choose life, instead of a violent death, for their children. And they offer real help—usually completely free—and hope for these moms and dads.
This terrible game was discussed on yesterday’s episode of Answers News, our twice-weekly news program that airs at 2 p.m. (Eastern Time) live on my Facebook page. Regular hosts Dr. Georgia Purdom and Bodie Hodge (I was away in North Carolina yesterday), and special guest Avery Foley, covered this story as well as many others, including
A fossilized extinct, giant, burrowing bat
Cosmic expansion rates and “new physics”
A tiny “dino” with colorful feathers
Why astrology is becoming popular
And should we criticize people for having “too many” kids?
You can watch Monday’s episode below.
I encourage you to watch this episode and share it with others. And be sure to join us live on Thursday at 2 p.m. (ET) for our next episode of Answers News. It’s aired Mondays and Thursdays at 2 p.m. before a live audience in the Creation Museum.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
