Legalized murder of newborns coming soon? February 27, 2012Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, asshatery, Basics, Dallas Diocese, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, North Deanery, scandals, silliness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Well, it will if certain
radical cultists of moloch medical “ethicists” have their way:
Abortion is largely accepted [Not so much in this country, where most are opposed except for those terribly exaggerated scenarios of "rape, incest, life of the mother" which have never made up more than about 1-2% of abortions. But this doesn't matter in the slightest. Even if 99.99% of Americans were supportive, it would still be wrong and unethical to take the life of another, completely innocent, person] even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.
From the standpoint of the materialist left and the culture of death (but I repeat myself), these arguments are perfectly defensible within their own frame of reference – a frame of reference which excludes any notion of God our source of Truth beyond human convenience. For that matter, those severely disabled as adults or children should/could also be killed. From this, it’s a very short walk to Logan’s Run and mandatory death requirements.
This is what comes from a culture divorced from religion, where only might and what is most desirable for those with something to gain from the death of another matters.
Similar avant garde “ethicists” argued for the legalization of abortion, and the use of contraception, from the 30s to the 60s. They too were often dismissed derisively, until, one day, suddenly, the Frankenstein monster they had created became the standard of “ethical,” “constitutional” jurisprudence, and was law. Now they want to extend the practice to those who actually make it out into the world. They want to legalize murder.
We’re at a cross-roads. All the false logic of the pro-abort crowd has been shown for what it is – a lie. We can either repent of this national evil or we can continue down the path of selfish expediency – the path of greater and greater evil and barbarism. God sets before all of us life and death, the blessing and the curse.
Choose life, then.
