Abortion And The Ten Commandments

Abortion And The Ten Commandments

Abortion is so evil that it violates every single commandment given to us by God. It degrades everything that it touches.

Abortion’s spiritual power is its perfect violation of all the commandments. First of all, most abortions are a result of sins against the sixth and ninth commandment which are adultery, fornication and lust. It’s certainly a sin against the fifth commandment prohibiting murder. Likewise, it violates the third commandment because the vast majority of babies are killed on abortion’s heaviest business days which is Saturday, or Sabbath. Abortion is also a reversal of the fourth commandment where father and mother dishonor the child in the most heinous way and in doing so curses the Holiness of God, which is the second commandment, which is manifested in the only creature made in his image and likeness. As a false religion, abortion is a violation of the first commandment forbidding the worship of any other gods but the Lord. And this religion is fed through a highly sophisticated system of falsehoods and deceits, the eighth commandment, which leads women into the abortion chambers. Furthermore, abortion literally steals, the seventh commandment, both our personal and national futures by depriving us of children. Anyone concerned about the present immigration issue should remember that presence of more than 40 million Hispanic immigrants in this country tracts exactly the destruction of 47 million or our own children by abortion since the Roe v. Wade death decision. The saying, “nature abhors a vacuum” is as true in demographics as it is in physics. Finally, the tenth commandment, coveting our neighbor’s goods, is about the capital sin of greed, the very thing that drives so many of the abortionists to do the killing work. Abortionists often claim to hate abortion but love the money behind it. Abortion is like a huge spiritual vortex of sin pulling people into it and even the church can be compromised by this evil, too. Most of the sins listed above are sins of co-mission but the church’s sins are usually sins of omission which abortion inspires. For example the terrible silence of the clergy on this topic…

I’m sure the devil just laughs and pats himself on the back when he sees the church, that has the spiritual power to undo all his works and all his empty promises sitting back and pretending that abortion is a non-issue. All of this is to point out that abortion is a spiritual power that negates God’s plan for love, life, and the family. It not only does it destroy bodies, but destroys souls, which from the point of view of eternity, represents the devil’s greatest masterpiece of evil.

Fr. Thomas Euteneuer
