Sexual Immorality Kills


I recently read an article by Sarah Fowler of the “Florida Family Policy Council that said “Abortion is the Leading Cause of Death” I back checked the figures from the article with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and I assure you that the data from that article and the data that I will use for this one are correct. To remain consistent I will use data from the CDC.

Here is what the article said about the United States: “Here in the United States, approximately 6,677 people died per day in 2009 (the most recent data available) of all causes (not including abortion). About 4,000 babies die per day by abortion in the US alone. If we add the victims of abortion to the death rate (making the deaths per day 10,677), they account for more than 37% of deaths in the United States. To put that percentage in perspective, 15.3% of that 10,677 die from heart disease (the leading cause of death according to the CDC) 14.5% from cancer, and so on” (Sarah Fowler).

You may ask why add the 4000 babies to the 6,677 people who died in the United States together? The CDC counts both but keeps the data separate, by acknowledging that the 4000 babies who were aborted are deaths they would be acknowledging that they were human life and they are not going to do that.

This caused me to ask two questions based on my assumptions of the total depravity of Man. If man is totally depraved then the abominable act of murdering a child in the womb has to be the result of another sin, namely sexual immorality. The data that I found not only answers my two questions but it also proves my assumption and the truth is far worse than I would have ever imagined.

Let us define sexual immorality, not man’s definition but God’s. Jesus said; “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become on flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” (Matthew 19:4-6) So God’s definition of marriage and sexual relationship is one man and one woman for life; anything outside of that is sexual immorality, it is sin.

So I had two questions based on my assumption:

1. Of the 4000 babies killed in the womb everyday by abortion what percentage is a result of sexual immorality?

2. Of all babies conceived in sexual immorality what percent are murdered in the womb by abortion?

I received these figures from Patte Smith of “Sanctuary Ministries” on women who get abortions; “64.4% have never been married, 9.4% are divorced, 18.4% are married.” There is 7.8% unaccounted for so at least 75% of all abortions are on unwed mothers meaning that 75% of all babies killed in the womb are a result of fornication. The percentage of babies killed being the result of sexual immorality could be much higher than 75% when you consider the 7.8% unaccounted for and the married women who are having abortions to hide their adultery. So we will go with 75% from unmarried women being the figure for babies killed as a result of sexual immorality since we cannot prove the assumptions.

Question 1) Of the 4000 babies killed in the womb everyday by abortion what percentage is a result of sexual immorality?: About 4,000 babies die per day by abortion in the US alone; 75% would be 3,000 babies die per day by abortion in the US because of sexual immorality. Do you understand what that means? As a result of their mommies and daddies fornicating, these babies are losing their lives at a rate of 3,000 per day.

Question 2) Of all babies conceived in sexual immorality what percent are murdered in the womb by abortion? The second question was a little more difficult to figure out but it just so happens that the CDC has figures on births as well. 1,633,471 per year or 4,475 babies are born to unwed mother per day in the US. Add the 3,000 babies per day that should have been born but were killed by abortion to the 4,475 babies who are born per day, the actual figure of births in the US to unwed mothers should be 7,475 babies born to unwed mothers per day. So that means if you are conceived in sexual immorality you have a 40% chance that your mother is going to have you killed. 40%!!! Put in perspective if any other activity had a death rate of 40% it would be outlawed.

Something else I found out by looking at this data and I wasn’t even looking for it. There are 3,999,386 total births per year or 10,957 births per day in the US. Add in the 4,000 babies killed per day by abortion in the US to the 10,957 births per day, there should be 14,957 babies born per day in the US alone. That means that for every baby conceived in the womb more than 1 in 4, 27% will be killed in the womb. I took this a little further and realized something that I hadn’t assumed and it revealed a country that is sick and rotten at the core. Since I discovered this I mentioned it to a small degree a couple of times on my facebook page and people became immediately offended and got all patriotic and political. This is neither about patriotism or politics this is spiritual and it is warfare. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

Now if we take the 14,957 babies who should be born per day in the US and use that as conceptions per day. Actual conceptions would be higher because there are natural deaths that occur in the womb that are not part of this data but the percentages should be exactly the same. So 14,957 babies are conceived in the womb per day in the US, 7,475 of those conceptions are by fornication. Do you see it? In the US per day 50% of all babies conceived in the womb are done so out of wedlock, in fornication, in gross sexual immorality. 50%!!!! That is horrific and that does not even account for those who got married before birth and adultery.

This is the United States you live in; 37% of all deaths are by purposefully killing the most helpless defenseless human beings in the country, 27 % that’s more than 1 in 4 babies conceived are killed and that figure rises to 40% if your parents are fornicators, greater than 50% of all babies conceived in the womb per day in the US are done so in gross sexual immorality. You may not like this data and you may be angry at me for putting it forward but it is the truth.

What about us, what are we to do? “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (1 John 2:15) “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2) Our society is wicked and we should not take part with it, but that being said, while we shouldn’t be of the world we are to be in the world. “I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people; I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world” (1 Corinthians 5:9-10).

So if we are to be in the world but not of the world what do we, who are in Christ, do about this?

1. Meditate on God’s word continually: “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” (Joshua 1:8)

2. Be angry about it, anger causes action: “BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN” (Ephesians 4:26).

3. Pray: “Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

4. Preach the gospel: “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)

“Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.” (Matthew 22:9) Go preach the gospel of Jesus Christ; at abortion mills, at the town square, at courthouses, at city hall, at malls, at feast, at festivals, at sporting events, and on the street corners, “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.” (2 Timothy 4:2)

The pastor of my church (Sylvania Church) gave a good definition of love this morning that fits well here. He said, “Love is not doing what people want you to do all the time. Love is doing what is best for the other person, not necessarily doing what they want.” (Phillip Dancey) Take a pregnant mother who is worried about finances and the embarrassment of having a child in fornication. Here killing her baby by abortion first ends the life of her baby, second makes her a murderer. She doesn’t want you to say it, but telling her that aborting her baby is murder, and that Jesus Christ has paid for her sins of fornication in full if she will repent of her sins and put her faith in Him alone is the most loving thing that you can do. Telling people in our society about sin, righteousness, and judgment is not popular, people will not want you to do it but it is the most loving thing that you can do. “Our do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) Martin Luther said, “Good works do not make a man good, but a good man does good works.” If you have been washed, sanctified, justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ through faith then you are righteous before God in Christ. Our politicians can’t fix this they are as corrupt as the society itself. There is now a 39 year history of abortion in America and it has become big business. But God can! Through the preaching of God’s word, by the working of the Holy Spirit God can bring people to repentance and faith in Christ. “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17).
