Good Samaritan To Mother And Child?

And he said unto Jesus, "Who then is my neighbour?"

A certain pregnant but troubled woman went down from Barrie to Toronto, and fell among "planned parenthood" advocates and also health care professionals who counseled her to exercise her "choice" and "terminate" her pregnancy. They wounded her with lies, stripped her of every maternal impulse to nurture and defend her precious gift of life and departed, leaving her bewildered and desolate.

By chance, on her way to the "health" clinic, she met a certain "pro-choice" Christian man who, while passing by on the other side, acknowledged her right and responsibility as a woman, guided by the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit, to make moral choices in regard to problem pregnancies. He was saddened though that the circumstances demanded the life of his "potential" neighbour, this little fetus.

And likewise a Bible Christian, when he was at the place, came and looked on her, but also passed by on the other side. As he passed he also felt sad about the death of such a tiny person but he couldn't let that distract him from carrying out the Great Commission. Wasting his time to protest or to help change laws wouldn't save this mom or his little neighbour from an immoral culture...only personal conversion to Christ could eventually help those in such distress.

As the woman turned onto the walkway to the "clinic", she lastly passed by a Catholic man wearing a large crucifix. He knew she had come to this place for the killing of an innocent child, which is what his Church taught him to believe. But he was overwhelmed by everyone else's denial of his neighbour's plight and felt sure there must be good reasons not to get involved and so he traveled on his way.

Were any of these three a neighbour unto the woman and child?
Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
