Every parent has ways of trying to instill their beliefs and values into their Children.
One way of illustrating the moral certitude or correctness of a position is to put the shoe on the other foot as it were.
By comparing the situation to another, you may quickly expose logical errors.
As just one example, when a Christian Baker is forced to violate their conscience by serving a Gay wedding. We may, quite correctly, wonder if it is right to force a Gay Baker to provide services to a person or group they consider to be Anti-Gay. By doing so, we can see that forcing anyone to violate their own beliefs and rights to free association and business conduct is not the right thing to do.
Unless the goal is no longer equality under the law and has instead, become the protection or establishment of one person or group over another.
Applying this same logic to Abortion, I will illustrate how we may compare it to pretty much anything else.
One piece of Liberal “thought” on Abortion, which gets used frequently, is “If you don’t like abortion, Don’t have one.”
Why doesn’t anyone think to push this back in the Pro-Abortionists face?
Apply their argument to beating up gay people as one example. “Don’t like gay-bashing. then don’t beat up gays, don’t try to restrict someone else’s right to do so.”
The thing is, we quickly see that there is a moral and legal issue at play here. No matter how anyone might feel about gay people, we understand that no person should be at risk of being attacked in America, for any reason.
Now, apply their argument to Slavery. “Don’t believe in, or like Slavery? Then don’t own a slave.”
The morality of the thing in question, precludes us saying or doing nothing about it.
Murder is murder, no matter how we justify it.
Slavery was and is wrong. We all understand this now.
Slavery was an injustice, an immoral evil, even when it was legal.
The current legality of a thing, tells us nothing about its’ actual morality, or its’ Constitutionality.
St Augustine wrote It seems to me that an unjust law is no law at all.
MLK Jr said Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Gandhi said It seems to me as clear as daylight that abortion would be a crime.
Mother Theresa said It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.
I believe this is the heart of the issue, selfishness.
Even when told about the horrors of rape and incest, we must hold the line.
Why would murdering the innocent child be correct? Why do these same people, never talk about killing the offender?
We must resist ceding any moral ground to those who say it is good to kill babies and that any opposition to the same is about misogyny and control.
Those who say that a baby in the womb is not a human being, shouldn’t be trusted.
Voltaire said, Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
It is patently absurd that an unborn human is not a human being.
However, dehumanization is a requirement for acts of murder. Just ask the Nazis.
I would never call for violence against any group or person in America, ever.
I would, however, remind people that Thomas Jefferson said When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes (a) duty.
Abortion is the greatest injustice of our time, a moral evil which rivals even slavery.
We can not support Abortion and call ourselves Christians.
We should not sit by and say nothing while Abortion is still “legal” as patriotic Americans’.
A war was fought to free this nation from the evil of slavery.
We must be willing to suffer discomfort in our pursuit of justice for the unborn.
A war of words and ideas, blessed by God, can overturn this unjust law.
Pray for an end to Abortion, but more; pray about what you can do to end it in your lifetime.
Each person who is engaged and challenged on Abortion can be a heart and mind changed.
When the American people know more about Abortion, they tend to oppose it.
