In an audacious display of disdain for life, many women on Twitter took their pro-abortion activism to a new level last week by tweeting about their abortion(s). The effort caused the hashtag #ihadanabortion to become a trending topic on Twitter for a time.
Not only is the episode a case study in the desensitization of our culture, it is a testament to Scripture’s teaching regarding sin’s power to blind people. Though each and every one of these women knows abortion is wrong, they suppress the truth, choosing instead to glory in shame.
According to Romans 1, “though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”
Is the Twitter “#ihadanabortion” trend effective empowerment or needless provocation?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (NKJV)
