Obama’s peculiar devotion to abortion

The Anchoress examines Obama’s peculiar devotion to abortion, one that sees him put it ahead of all other policy considerations and that allows him to violate freely the consciences of others.

As I’ve said here repeatedly, while I have not yet made the journey to being whole-heartedly pro-Life, after a lifetime of being pro-Choice, the Left’s fealty to abortion, one that transcends even garden-variety morality, logic, and basic Constitutionalism, is pretty good at driving me ever further into the pro-Life camp.

    When Man elevates him/herself above God, it always degenerates into a death cult.

    When Man elevates God above him/herself, it fosters a reverence for Creation and a thankfulness for one’s own creation and that of others.

    You may or may not agree with the God part, but I suggest that history surely bears witness to the first part of what I just wrote. 

    Like you, I could once rationalize why abortion in the 1st trimester might be OK. Since then, however, I have seen the dehumanization of the foetus progress from 1st trimester abortion, to any-trimester abortion, to partial-birth abortion, to open discussion about infanticide up-to age 2 (a moving goal post, no doubt), to open discussion of the elimination of babies with birth defects, health-care death panels and euthanasia. And it all began with a “maybe OK in the 1st trimester”. 

    Secular humanists always start by preaching their love for “humanity” and always end by getting very used to the idea of eliminations vaste swaths of populations that stand in the way of their earthly Utopian dreams.

    I’m much wiser today than I was then.

    Nicely said, Danny.
     
    What we witnessing is our society’s devolution into paganism, which starts with worship of the beauty of nature (national parks, tofu, the orgasm) and inevitably degenerates into a fascination with—and adoration of—blood, death, and decay (abortion, euthanasia, the gulag, Islam).

    The culture of death is rooted in pride an arrogance, the downfall of all those who choose eternal damnation for their souls. They can judge better than their Creator who should live and who should die. It’s the essence of all that is wrong in the mind of the elite.

  4. says

    Judging who gets to live or die is a serious duty and responsibility of free individuals. The Founding Fathers decided the British would get it and ordered their own sons and cousins into the war grinder, including themselves.

     God’s Judgment is on the soul of those in the after life. But we can speed that judgment along, without ever becoming the judge.

    In a private until now discussion with a few close friends, of how many months should be the line for allowing an abortion, I said (JOKINGLY, people, JOKINGLY) that I thought the number should be 19, or 25 if they go to college. 

    My friends understood me.  My real number is 0.

    At another place and time, a landlord of mine asked me about abortion.  I started from right then and there, and worked him back to his birth, and asked when he became a citizen.  Starting over from the present, and working him back to his conception, I asked him when he was not a human being.  He went off and thought about it , but the discussion never came up again.

    From that discussion, I realized something important.  Human beings do not have a right to life in this and many other cultures; only certifiable citizens.

    The way discussions are going lately, we’re headed for only properly registered voters, and then only followers of the currently in power, will have a right to life, as long as they aren’t a nuisance to someone important and powerful.  And we know how that turned out in the 20th century.
