Sandy writes, "Several feminist Knesset members have recently submitted a proposal to cancel the Committees. As a result, abortion has become an increasingly more popular topic in the media."
Sandy writes, "In order to obtain a government funded abortion in Israel, women must meet certain criteria. Yet, over 98% of those who apply for abortions are accepted."
Sandy writes, "As I walked through the market place in Jerusalem today, I sighed as I considered how casually our society regards the very things which God has called wonderful. In Psalm 139, it is written that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Yet our society regards the baby in the womb as an object which can be disposed of if it’s “inconvenient.” "
Sandy writes, "We are deeply concerned about our youth here in Israel. There is currently a lack of an overall program by the Ministry of Education on sexual education. Without an educational program for our teens or open dialogue with parents, “sex education” is left to the media and ”PORN BECOMES THE NORM”."
Sandy writes, "We have desired and prayed for many years to make connections with Knesset members and other organizations that serve women, and this was an excellent opportunity for us, and truly a blessing. We felt it was another step forward in our ability to influence legislation and to voice our concerns."
Sandy writes, "It is remarkable how much medicine has advanced, yet each person should be given the basic right to live, simply because he/she is created in the image of God."
Sandy writes, "We must hold on to the Truth of God, without compromise, and bravely protect every life regardless of size, location or circumstances."
Our society has created an illogical premise – that taking the life of a child is better than allowing him to live, even if that means certain hardships. God is calling for more people who are ready to save, supply and sponsor these babies.
If we do not define the unborn child as a person from conception, then what moment would we choose? Would the heartbeat at 23 days make him more human? Would the brain waves detected at 40 days determine his personhood?
Sandy writes about the issue of abortions in Israel, and reminds us of God's call "Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live!" Deut. 30:19
