DOES GOD PERMIT A WOMAN THE RIGHT TO HAVE AN ABORTION IF SHE IS A VICTIM OF RAPE?
by Tony Alamo
GOD says, “Behold, all souls are MINE; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is MINE: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, And hath not eaten upon the mountains [worshipped idols], neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbor’s wife [committed adultery with her], neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, Hath walked in MY statutes, and hath kept MY judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the LORD GOD.
“If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things, And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains [worshipped idols], and defiled his neighbour’s wife [committed adultery with her], Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge [hath not paid their tithes], and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination, Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live [eternally]? he shall not live [eternally]: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.
“Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father’s sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like, That hath not eaten upon the mountains [worshipped idols], neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbor’s wife [committed adultery with her], Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge [hath not withheld his tithes and offernings], neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment, That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed MY judgments, hath walked in MY statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live [eternally]. As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die [eternally] in his iniquity.
“Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all MY statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live [eternally]. The soul that sinneth, it shall die [eternally]. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
“But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all MY statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live [eternally], he shall not die [eternally]. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live [eternally]. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die [eternally]? saith the LORD GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live [eternally]?” (Ezekiel 18:4-23).
GOD not only says that all souls are HIS, but in Numbers 16:22 Moses and Aaron said HE is “the GOD of the spirits of ALL flesh.” In Jeremiah 32:27 GOD says, “I am the LORD, the GOD of ALL flesh.” GOD, in Jeremiah 1:5, told Jeremiah, “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee.”
How could anyone have the audacity to destroy the soul, the spirit, and the flesh of any human baby that GOD knew before they were formed in the belly, let alone before they came out of the womb, even in the case of rape?
The real law is the law of GOD.1 Let us see what the law of GOD says.
“If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die [physically and Spiritually], both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel. If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed [engaged] unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you. But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her [rapes her], and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die: But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter: For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried [cried for help because she didn’t want to be raped], and there was none to save her [from being raped]. If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her [rapes her], and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away [divorce her] all his days” (Deuteronomy 22:22-29).
When I first saw this law I thought, “How could a woman want to marry any man that raped her?” Then immediately, my mind went back to that day forty-eight years ago in a lawyer’s office in Beverly Hills where I first became acquainted with GOD. HE commanded me to tell the people in that office that JESUS CHRIST was coming back to earth again. GOD’S SPIRIT was upon me with such power, and I began reasoning with HIM, saying, “LORD, I’ll tell them tomorrow. I’ll call them on the phone. I’ll send them cables, telegrams, but don’t make me tell them now.” The office was filled with an entourage of my people and other people from the movie industry. I thought they would have me committed to an insane asylum if I did what HE was telling me to say and do. So GOD started pulling my spirit, my soul, in and out of my body, and let me know that if I didn’t say what HE was telling me to say, I would die right then and there. There wouldn’t be anything I could do to stop HIM from killing me. At the same time, I was feeling how powerful and intelligent HE is, and knew that no one could stop HIM from doing whatever HE wanted to do. Before this happened to me, I never believed in GOD or JESUS. I was considered the best advertising agent in any kind of business including show business. From that day forth, I quit being an advertising agent and began seeking the LORD. I have no problem believing anything that GOD said or says. If GOD tells a man he must marry an unmarried woman that he has raped and support her the rest of her life, and then tells the woman she must marry him and let him support her until the day she dies, I would suggest they do exactly what GOD commands them to do.
Again, when I first saw this law, for an instant it seemed harsh to me. Now that I know GOD and HIS power, I also know that HE is THE BOSS. You know, today’s women rape very easy. They may look like angels, but they’re not. I’ve met many of them that look like angels that I found to be liars and devils.
If a woman becomes pregnant because she was raped, she may not have an abortion. If she did have an abortion, that would be first degree murder, and she would be sent to Hell for it. Exodus 20:13, in the original Hebrew, says “Thou shalt not murder,” and whosoever commits murder must be put to death. “Murder” includes the murder of unborn babies. “He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death” (Exodus 21:12). What shall happen to all murderers? “The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and MURDERERS, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8). And people are liars that say that unborn babies are not people and are not alive. If these babies are not alive, then how could they murder them? And why should they murder them if they’re not alive?
Those who abort babies, those who perform abortions, and those who become suicide bombers are all MURDERERS. You ought to repent now because judgment is coming sooner than you think.
In Exodus 21:22-25, we see the penalty for an accidental abortion. “If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give LIFE FOR LIFE, Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.” A baby growing in its mother’s womb is a life.
In Matthew 22:31-32, JESUS said, “Have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by GOD, saying, I am the GOD of Abraham, and the GOD of Isaac, and the GOD of Jacob? GOD is not the GOD of the dead, but of the LIVING.” Again, a baby growing in its mother’s womb is LIVING and growing, and GOD is its GOD.
Idolaters are well known for murdering their own children, up to this very day. Jeremiah 32:35 states, “And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire [murder/abortion] unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into MY mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.”
Two prostitutes came before King Solomon, the wisest man on earth, with a dispute. “Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.
And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king. Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
“Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of GOD was in him, to do judgment” (1 Kings 3:16-28).
It would be a good thing for the women of today who love to murder little babies to begin having the same heart as the compassionate prostitute mentioned above, the one who said to spare the baby! She was the mother!
The actor Tony Curtis was asked what it was like kissing Marilyn Monroe. As beautiful as most men think she was, Tony Curtis stated, “It was like kissing Hitler!” I’ve heard that Marilyn Monroe had a couple of abortions, that she murdered a couple of babies. This is probably why Curtis, a Jew, remembering the death camps of World War II, where six million innocent Jews were put to death by Hitler, thought it was like kissing Hitler when he kissed Marilyn Monroe in a movie. This is the way I feel about the women of today that believe in abortion, murder! How could any man want to kiss one of them?
Psalm 82:3-4 states, “Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy [the “needy” being unborn humans that are being judged as subhuman]. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” Do this and live (eternally). Repent of all your sins, then be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT. Study the WORD and do what JESUS says. Say this prayer.
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
Now that you are saved, make sure you are baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, in the name of the SON, and in the name of the HOLY SPIRIT (Matthew 28:18-20). Serve GOD with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). Study the Scriptures, and do what they say until the day you die (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:14-17).
