Killing the Unborn Now a Constitutional Right in France!

Comment on this article

Partly in reaction to America’s turning back the clock on abortion rights and with the encouragement of President Emmanuel Macron, the French Parliament voted overwhelmingly last week to amend the nation’s 1958 constitution (BBC, March 4, 2024). Abortion is now “enshrined” as a right of every French woman thanks to France’s 25th Amendment! France has now become the first nation in the world to make abortion an explicitly stated constitutional right. The reaction of the French Parliament after the vote was jubilation, while the Vatican was quick to respond with a statement of protest: “There can be no ‘right’ to take a human life.”

Our modern, secular societies are increasingly self-centered. However, the practice of killing the unborn and even infants is not new. In contrast to God’s commands against child sacrifice, the ancient Israelites fell into this abominable form of worship practiced by the pagan nations around them. Today, children are no longer sacrificed to spiritual gods, they are sacrificed to the god of self! “My body, my choice” is the mantra so often repeated by proponents of abortion in their loathing of any children whose lives might interfere with their own personal desires.

The French are descendants of one of the ancient tribes of Israel. Will the decisions of French lawmakers pave the way for France’s brother-tribes to follow suit? The Bible states that “in the last days” people “will be “lovers of themselves… rather than lovers of God” (2 Timothy 3:1–5). God specifically warns the modern nations that have descended from ancient Israel that, if they turn away from God and violate His commandments, they will face serious consequences (see Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28). To learn what lies ahead for France and other such nations, read or listen to The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy.
