Save the Pandas, Etc.

Photo by: tiverylucky

I just watched some video clips of three baby pandas in Guangzhou, China from their birth and filmed again this week. They were so cute, making funny noises that sounded like those little horns you blow at birthday parties. From almost hairless, now the baby pandas have distinctive black and white markings and fuzzy fur. They are just now being introduced to their mother, having been kept in an incubator and cared for meticulously. Pandas are an endangered species, so each tiny cub is important. They’re so important to zoos that the Edinburgh zoo paid six million pounds to the Chinese government for the loan of two giant pandas, a male and a female.

I went out to the outdoor bench where I like to have my devotions, and I decided the bench needed repositioned. Then I sat down and noticed that, in the bare patch now uncovered, there were a lot of red ants and just about as many little white pill-shaped packets, almost as big as the ants. Those red ants were moving like crazy! Within just a few minutes, they had moved all of the packets underground, out of the sun. Soon, there wasn’t a red ant or a packet to be seen.

I came back inside and did some research. I found out that the little white ant packets were capsules containing baby ants. The ants didn’t want their babies exposed to the elements. They protected every one.

Which brings me to human babies.

I believe that an unborn human is a child. Just like an unborn ant is valuable to an ant, an unborn human should be valuable to humans. Just as the ants protect their own unhatched little ones, we should protect our unborn children.

Baby pandas are cared for with white gloves. Unborn human children are butchered in the womb.

I read some statistics the other day: In the United States, each year 121,000 people die from accidents, 580,000 from cancer, 600,000 from heart disease, and 1,600,000 from abortion. Abortion is the number one killer of Americans.**

I wish we were more like ants.

Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13)

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 (Exodus 21:22-23).
