MTV Reality Show Highlights Abortion

Many thoughts come to mind while watching this. Obviously I'm filled with immense sadness that the life of an unborn baby was taken. I'm outraged that the murder of innocent babies is legal in our nation. It's also upsetting that MTV obviously has an agenda with this show and that is to make abortion more acceptable and the "loving" thing to do. It's also extremely sad that in our nation abortion is pushed as the "loving" thing and abstinence is ridiculed. Instead of encouraging abstinence we hand teenagers condoms and when they don't use them we encourage murder...

That being said, I wonder where the Church was in this? Obviously this couple has some kind of religious background. The girls mother talked about praying. The couple talks about God and he has a tattoo of Jesus on his arm...

The Church has a responsibility to teach the morals of God's Word more clearly. I think sometimes we assume that people know what is right and wrong. Ultimately they do because God has written His Law on our hearts - yet, sin has a blinding power. Just like in terribly wicked times mentioned in the book of Judges where "every man did what was right in their own eyes," this couple was doing what they thought was "right." The Church has the responsibility of teaching right and wrong. This includes clearly teaching what the Bible says about sexual relationships before marriage and the fact that all life is sacred.

The Church also needs to be ready to support and help women who are in situations like this girl was in. Situations where they are pregnant and don't know how they're going to support a baby. The Church needs to do more than shout at women going into an abortion clinic calling them babykillers. We need to be there to lovingly support and encourage women who are pregnant - and those who have made the tragic choice to have their baby aborted.

It has been said that "It is better to light one small candle than to sit and curse the darkness." May God help us who make up the Church of Jesus Christ to do more than "curse the darkness" of abortion. Somehow, someway, we need to "light a candle" and help show couples like the one featured in this video the Way.

Your thoughts?


  1. Oh, that video makes me ill! How sad!

  2. I have talked with broken women who have gone thru this... such a hard thing to comfort them, till they find Jesus.

  3. This is indeed sad, actually it is a tragedy that it is being sponsored and sold as entertainment to a depraved people. May God have mercy on us.

    I know that the news media use to love portraying Christians as those who hurl insults like baby killer at those going into abortion clinics. But I don't think this is at all typical though I can't prove it; only I know the news media. I for years drove by an abortion clinic on the way to work and there were always ladies out there who looked like they were praying.

    Keep up the good work. My wife and I had a good chuckle at your movie making attempts. I hope that all worked out.
