Samantha Singson of The Interim attended a National Organization of Women (NOW) meeting recently. The featured speaker was Eleanor Bader. Lamenting the fact that the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) doesn't use the "A-word" any more, she said that the remedy is to talk up "the good that abortion is".
The... good... that... abortion... is.
Savor that one for a moment.
She went on to emphasize that "abortion is a moral good and a social good".
Gaining momentum, she enthusiastically concluded with a pep-rally slogan, "It's abortion and it's good!".
Man is hopelessly moral. And he seems to have a deep-seated need to justify his actions, to cast them in a favorable moral light. Even the Mafia have a highly-developed moral code.
The problem is, as fallen creatures, our moral code is invariably distorted and twisted because of sin.
Moses gave us the Mosaic Law. Then Jesus came along and relaxed some aspects of it (ritual compliance) while intensifying other aspects -- especially those parts dealing with human sexuality and the treatment of others.
If Jesus can view unjustified anger against another person as tantamount to murder, imagine what he would make of an abortion -- the destruction of utterly innocent human life.
Those on the left claim that capital punishment diminishes us all. I disagree.
Abortion diminishes us.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
