Abortions for everyone!

February 16, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

In the paper today is a letter about abortion. It has these two interesting paragraphs:

The decision says, “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is guaranteed by the (Fourteenth) Amendment.”

In the past 32 years, simple logic and the march of science have settled that question of personhood. Since it is seen growing from the moment of conception, it must be alive. Since its parents are people, reason would dictate that this fetus is not an alligator. but a little person.

Now, both of those points were certainly known in 1973. The problem is that person doesn’t simply mean something that’s alive with human DNA. After that comment, Roe v. Wade discusses what exactly “person” means constitutionally and come to the conclusion that it doesn’t include the unborn.

It is time to abandon that death-dealing (46 million lives lost) flat-earth decision and celebrate instead the God-given life-saving knowledge available in the 21st century.

I really don’t believe that people actually believe abortion is murder. Maybe they think they do, but they don’t seem to be taking it seriously enough. A few marches and a bit of harassment at clinics? I’ve seen more people chained to trees or gates than I have to the door of an abortion clinic. If you believe abortion is murder, this is the Holocaust 4 times over. This doesn’t justify civil disobedience? Maybe some property destruction? It seems bizarre to me that these people apparently watch people walk into a clinic with the purpose of killing someone and all they do is yell or hand them a pamphlet.
