From the Blog The Divine Life, an interesting post about that tragic word, “late-term abortion”.
Besides being very instructive about the scale of ruthlessness the “liberated” Western society has brought on us, it makes clear the intrinsic hypocrisy of the entire so-called “pro-choice” edifice.
An abortion is either a murder, or it isn’t. If it isn’t, there should be no reason whatsoever why those who don’t consider abortion killing shouldn’t practice it any time before birth or – come to that and with the same thinking – actually during birth too. If it is, then it shouldn’t be practiced and it should be banned altogether, period.
This idea that an abortion would be morally acceptable for, say, 20 weeks but would then become morally questionable starting from day X is a logical and ethical absurdity. Also hypocritical is the behaviour of those institutions which practice abortions only in certain circumstances after the – arbitrarily decided – day X whilst leaving the circumstances completely under the control of the mother. Actually, when a mother decides that she wants to kill her baby it is difficult to tell her that she was morally authorised to do so until last Tuesday but, alas, at midnight all this ceased to apply.
The arguments just don’t have any logic. The argument that one would procure an abortion only after a certain day is totally devoid of logic and the argument that one would procure it only if there are reasons every mother could claim for herself (“emotional distress”, say) is illogical and hypocritical at the same time.
Abortion is murder. What is so difficult in that……
