The most oppressed people group in the world today is one which is scattered across all countries and cultures. They are completely vulnerable and have absolutely no political power and no way to fend for themselves or even to make their voices heard wherever they are. Because of that, they are constantly dehumanised and deprived of their right just to live, and any remaining law which affords them the least form of protection are being threatened perhaps most of all (and very ironically so) by so-called “human rights” groups who aggressively seek to abolish those laws, while these people continue to be killed at a rate that has far surpassed all the worst genocides in known history combined – an estimated 10 million every year – often in the most inhumane and painful ways like chemical burning and dismemberment, sometimes having their body parts sold by their murderers to be used for experiments. The ill (and, in some places, the females) are especially targeted for extermination and there are fewer and fewer places on this earth that they are safe.
They are our unborn children.
We are an association of Reformed believers dedicated to the care and protection of unborn children and their mothers for the glory of God through prayer, spreading the truths of God’s Word, providing pastoral counsel and practical help, and advocating for just laws that would protect our children and abolish abortion in Singapore. We believe that it is the duty of all Christians to speak out against this great evil of our day, but it is our even greater duty to speak out about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to call our nation to faith in him and repentance from sin and to righteousness.
Our Lord Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” The only way in which one can be truly pro-life is to believe the Gospel of Life, apart from which we are all slaves to death. Death is the wages of sin, and we have all sinned against God. We are born into sin and born into misery. Apart from the salvation of Christ, the fact is that we are all better off being a stillborn (Ecclesiastes 6:3).
But God has conquered both sin and death by His Son Jesus Christ, who rose from the dead on the third day. It is in that light that we can have hope that his kingdom of life will triumph over our culture of death, his truth and forgiveness over our error and sins. We, therefore, do not want to hide this light under a basket and appeal merely to secular logic but to the Word of God, which we believe is wise and powerful to the conversion and salvation of sinners like ourselves.
Petition the Parliament of Singapore to End Abortion in Singapore
Whereas the Law of God prohibits the killing of those who have committed no crime (Genesis 9:6; Exodus 20:13; 23:7; Deuteronomy 27:25);
And whereas the Law of God requires the civil government to punish those who murder the innocent (Jeremiah 22:3; Romans 13:4);
And whereas God promises to judge even those who passively accept or allow the injustice of murder (Proverbs 24:11-12);
And whereas the Parliament of Singapore has legalized the on-demand murder of innocent children in the womb up to the 24th week of gestation in the Termination of Pregnancy (Abortion) Act of 1969 and 1974;
And whereas there have been 621,413 reported abortions performed in between the years 1970 and 2013, and about 1 in 5 children continue to be killed each year before they are born (Source, cf. MOH Singapore);
Therefore, we hereby respectfully call upon the Members of the Parliament of Singapore to repent for the wrongs committed against unborn children and their mothers condoned by an act of Parliament;
Publicly renounce the practice of elective abortion as a criminal act of murder;
Repeal the Abortion Act of 1969 and 1974;
Pass and implement legislation to safeguard against illegal abortions and to help mothers who are unable to care for their children.
