Can I live?

Posted: January 17, 2012 by liftyourvoice1 in Abortion/Sanctity of Life


This video is very profound. Here is a secular artist thanking his mother for not terminating him. A secular artist whom abortion has touched, and it would seem…he is pro-life. I felt it necessary to share at this point, based on the subject that has been discussed. Unborn children have no voice to speak up. I ask you who will speak up for them? Who will help them live?

Proverbs 31:8-9—> 8 Speak up for those who have no voice,
for the justice of all who are dispossessed.
9 Speak up,judge righteously,
and defend the cause of the oppressed and needy.

    this is an excellent video and message, but it is an imaginary story in terms of Nick Cannon speaking as if he is his own fetus. the idea is powerful, but unfortunately, our pre-born neighbors cannot speak for themselves, so we must do it in their behalf. Our show is “Lift Your Voice” and now we have a new spin on that phrase. Not only should we “lift our voices” for ourselves and our issues, but we need to do so for others who cannot. It is called “advocacy” and it is clearly taught in Proverbs 31:8-9.

    8 Open your mouth (LIFT YOUR VOICE) for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.

    I love this video and the message behind it. And like you’re saying Dr. H, the unborn child isn’t able to “lift their voice” to this issue like the video portrays, so clearly we must speak up for them! This could absolutely be said about many issues in life. Definitely a nice new spin on “Lift Your Voice.”

    The thing we can learn from the video is that while the people outside of the abortion clinic were trying to prevent the death of this child, it was a wrong attitude. They were angry-looking, and the mother did not even consider them. The quiet plea of Nick is more effective. So while we’re “Lifting our voices” we must remember to do it gently and take particular care that we don’t appear threatening or fierce.
    Favorite points:
    “If I could talk I’d say to you, ‘Can I live?'”
    “It takes a strong woman to make the sacrifice.”

    Excellent points, Sean! I have always stressed the following in all my training for Lifeline ministry:

    2 Timothy 2:24-25 – 24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,

    Titus 3:1-5a – 1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men. 3 For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us.

    and these two passages are elaborations on the simple principle Paul gives in Ephesians 4:15 which is “speaking the truth in love.”
