Question of the day: a woman’s value.
Last night my friend Nick, who blogs over at Multitude of Counsel, sent me a text message asking me what happened to my weekly question. To which I responded: “Oh my soul! I forgot all about it! I’ll post one tomorrow.” I thanked him for the reminder then fell asleep. This is me keeping my word. This is me also offering an apology to my other readers who were wondering where this week’s Question of the Day post was.
I saw this question a few months ago on a facebook friend’s page. It was posted by an abortion survivor – Gianna Jessen* to be exact. I did warn her and say that I’d probably steal this question from her and post it on here, to which she offered no objections.
Here’s the question:
If a woman is married and fully capable of having a baby but doesn’t have one, does this make her selfish?
Is a woman’s value in life determined by how many children she has?
Thoughts? Opinions? Scripture? Leave a comment, get involved, pass it on. 🙂
*If you have never heard of Gianna Jessen before, you can look her up on YouTube. She is an incredible woman with an inspiring story of hope and life. She is a pro-life activist and travels the country speaking on behalf of the unborn. She also has an unofficial facebook fan page for those interested.
I came across this video of John Piper discussing abortion (perhaps a little off topic from the question presented today), and I thought I’d add it to the end of this post. Abortion is About God.
