GUEST: COLLEEN TRONSON, Executive Director, Metro Women’s Center
Americans like to think of our nation and people as “exceptional”, providing an example of goodness, charity, even Christianity, to the rest of the world. There is some truth to this. America has been immeasurably blessed in resources and liberties and has spread innovation and freedom across the world.
But if we are honest, this nation has also become perhaps the greatest consumer and exporter of moral wickedness, such as sexual immorality in its many forms and the murder of pre-born children.
Consider the 1973 Supreme Court decision called Roe v. Wade that led to abortion—the intentional murder of pre-born human beings—becoming legal in this country. A mind-numbing 63 million pre-born babies have been killed since then. That is nearly 20% of the current population of the United States.
No matter how it’s rationalized—“women’s health care”, “my body, my choice”, “reproductive rights”—the reality is that, every day, pregnant women enter hospitals and clinics where abortionists kill or dismember and extract pre-born human beings.
The Bible says about the pre-born child: “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:13-14).
There was great celebration by those who oppose abortion when Roe v. Wade was overturned in the summer of 2022. But alas, Satan never relents in fomenting sin and evil in the hearts of humans. With abortion now being a matter for each state to decide, extreme bills are being pushed through state legislatures that remove almost all limits on abortion. Our home state of Minnesota is currently passing one of the most radical abortion bills in the country.
Colleen Tronson, executive director of Metro Women’s Center in Minnesota, joins us on The Christian Worldview to discuss how the abortion landscape is changing, the rise of the abortion pill, and how Christians can get involved to save lives and proclaim the hope of the gospel.
