  1. Everyday, every hour, every minute a new born baby is introduce into the world. Whether the parents wanted that child to be born. If they didnt want that child or if that country didn’t allow the woman the right to abort that child if she wanted to. Many countries and goverments have given woman the right to make that decision to abort a child and other countries does not allow the woman that right. The United States have given that right to the woman to make that choice. Just as how America has allowed a woman to make that decision most Latin American countries do not afford woman the opportunity to abort a child. Chile, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Malta consider it to be unethical for a woman to have that procedure done and has banned it entirely. Although the procedure is considered illegal, unethical and banned, in some countries there is a case by case request that can be made under certain circumstances. Mental health, rape, womans life, and fetal defects are four case request that can be made and if granted they must travel outside the country to a another country that allow the procedure to have it done. According to the World Health Organization over the last decade abortions rates in the U.S. and abroad have decline and continuing the steady fall due to the availability of contraceptives. Is it fair for to say that a woman who has an abortion is a evil or a wicked person. No its not fair. A woman should have the choice on what to do that’s best for her. Granted that when a woman gets pregnant and wants an abortion should have also thought about the use of contraceptive and getting pregnant. No matter what religion we believe in whether it’s Christianity, Buddhism, protestant, Catholic, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, or atheists we all have our beliefs and we have that right to say whether something is right or whether is wrong.

  2. Every now and then we hear the voice of a female pastor being echoed through a microphone while preaching her sermon on a sunday morning. Whether a bishop, pastor, or a deacon we are slowly beginning to see a role reversal over a period of time. Many of us frown upon a woman leading us in the world but even more so when she is preaching the word of God to us. Do we frown upon this because they feel it’s a males job to do so. What are we supposed to do when a man of God who suppose to be at the forefront in giving the word decides he is inadequate and chose to be the tail and not the head. Is this what our future generations of a man is looking like, is this what our daughters suppose to look at the male figure as being weak, irresponsible, and the lack of leadership abilities. When a young male child starts his journey into a church that is dominated by female leadership and guidance that child will slowly begin to take on those leadership traits of a female. While the Bible does not support the practice of women serving as pastors, numerous passages speak clearly and forcibly to the inherent worth and value of women service in sometimes-difficult situations. This is readily seen in the Acts of the Apostles. Both Priscilla and Aquila spoke privately to Apollos at Ephesus (Acts 18:24-26) In his letter to the Romans, Paul identified sixteen significant helpers in ministry (16:1-16), and at least ten of them were women. The Word of God proclaims, “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent” (1 Timothy 2:11–12). In closing, can a woman be a pastor or a preacher, There is perhaps no more hotly debated issue in the church today than the issue of women serving as pastors/preachers. As a result, it is very important to not see this issue as men versus women. There are women who believe women should not serve as pastors and that the Bible places restrictions on the ministry of women, and there are men who believe women can serve as preachers and that there are no restrictions on women in ministry. This is not an issue of chauvinism or discrimination. It is an issue of biblical interpretation.
