Skip to comments.Commentary: Abortion and the Seeds of Violence
Posted on 04/15/2009 3:28:58 PM PDT by tcg
Where sex and babies are concerned, it seems weve 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 thats 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 isnt protected at every stage, it cant really be protected at any stage because sooner or later, someone somewhere will rationalize and justify their choice to kill another person.

I tell the Philly Cops when we are at abortion Clinic and they babysit us... This Abortion Clinic is ground Zero for the Murders in PHILLY over 400 per year!
“Men are being reduced to simply their DNA (and only when thats 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.”
John Paul II
