If you wont stand up for your own child, somebody has to. He believed it, and he was convinced it was Gods view. It made sense to him. But he also knew she could reject it out of hand simply because he was a man. How could he understand? No one was suggesting what he could or could not do with his own body. He had wanted to tell her he understood that, but again, what if that unborn child was a female? Who was standing up for the rights of that womans body?Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, excerpted from the novel Nicolae p. 297, third book from the Left Behind novels.
