Commentary: Abortion and the Seeds of Violence
Catholic Online ^ | 4/16/09 | Jennifer Hartline

Where sex and babies are concerned, it seems we’ve lost even the slightest inclination to aspire to the better angels of our nature. Today respect, responsibility, nobility, generosity, decency, trust, sacrifice, and love are discarded in favor of individual “freedom” and “choice.” Why bother practicing self-control, why bother treating the opposite sex with respect and behaving with honor, when one can just eliminate any unintended “punishments” and carry on as though no one was hurt and nothing was lost.

Men are being reduced to simply their DNA (and only when that’s needed), women are further reduced to objects used for bodily satisfaction, and sex is devoid of love, emptied of obligation, and cheapened as a merely animalistic activity. Then when a child is created but not wanted, our solution is violence.

We sow violence, and violence begets more violence, and more death, and now no one is safe. No human life at any stage in any condition is safe because brutality is rooted in the soil where we all begin. If human life isn’t protected at every stage, it can’t really be protected at any stage because sooner or later, someone somewhere will rationalize and justify their “choice” to kill another person.

Will we ever understand that by turning the sword on the womb, we’ve left all of humanity bleeding? And will it be too late when we finally do?

“Men are being reduced to simply their DNA (and only when that’s needed), women are further reduced to objects used for bodily satisfaction,” and the family is whatever we want to call it at any given moment.

So true, and I am so disappointed when FReepers sometimes embrace one or the other of these lies.

This writer goes to the core of our country’s problem.

“A nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope.”
