Why is there so much outrage over a “gender selective abortion” in our country? For those of you who are pro-abortion, an abortion isn’t actually committing murder, right? I mean if it were, you wouldn’t condone or advocate it because I know you’re not in favor murder. So if an abortion isn’t murder, and that thing in the uterus is just a blob of flesh, then it should make no difference whether that blob would have been a male or female. A mother (although she’s not really a mother, she is a woman with a blob in her belly) should be able to decide to eliminate the blob based on any reason; convenience, money, gender, you name it.
Using this logic, you can’t be pro-abortion but be outraged at gender selective abortions. You have unwittingly conceded your position. If we are going to scrutinize the reasons for having an abortion based on any logical, philisophical, moral or spiritual grounds, and conclude that it is ever wrong to commit abortion, then it is always wrong. Anyone, on either side who is expressing outrage over gender selective abortion is either conceding that is right some of the time, or conceding that it is wrong some of the time. Pick a side and stick to it; always right or always wrong.
Let me be clear. Life begins at conception. Abortion is murder. As Christians, we need not rationalize, stipulate or concede anything on this subject. Pro-abortion activists have an agenda when they agree with any element of a pro-life position. They want to convince us that they are a little more like us, and at the same time pull us into a position of compromise. If anyone asks you what you think about gender selective abortion you should say “All abortion is murder.” The fact that our country is fumbling around inside the margins on this issue is a disgrace and I pray that God forgives us.
Looking forward to your comments.
