Posted on 04/19/2009 6:28:20 PM PDT by ReformationFan
The abortion industry needs a "pride" movement, similar to that of the immensely successful homosexualist movement, a prominent US bioethicist says. Jacob M. Appel, an author, professor at Brown University and graduate of Harvard Law, wrote on the website "Opposing Views," that "the moment is ripe - more than ripe - for an Abortion Pride Movement."
Appel says that "one is bombarded" in the "conservative" press with stories of women who overcome obstacles to bring to term "fetuses" with severe disabilities. "The implication," he wrote, "is that while bearing a child when one is ready is a blessing, bearing a child when one is not prepared garners one extra moral credit in the cosmos." This praise of women carrying difficult pregnancies to term, he submits, constitutes an "anti-abortion" pride movement.
But for those Americans who believe "that life begins after conception," such stories are "not at all a cause for pride." "It more is akin to deciding that the world is flat and then boasting of not falling off the edge."
He complains that women who have abortions are "rarely encouraged to take pride in their decisions." Calling abortion a "courageous and noble moral choice," Appel wrote, "Women who step up to the ethical plate and have the strength to say, 'This is the wrong time,' or 'This is the wrong fetus,' should hold their heads high in the streets."
While he admitted that "terminating a pregnancy" can be a "difficult choice," "our society should be proud of them too."
"Our message should not be merely toleration or resigned acquiescence, but genuine joy that someone has made a decision for their own and for the collective good."
The nazi guards at the death camps had alot of pride too...
Let's just go ahead and spell the whole thing out .... "Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling."
Abortion pride. Gay pride. Hmmmm ....
Pride in killing an innocent. That takes the cake.
There can be no pride in a nation that sanctions the brutal murders of God’s most innocent creations.
This probably sounds odd now. By the end of Obama’s second term, it will appear in banner headlines on the front page of the government-subsidized NYTimes. I would bet money on it.
Woe unto them who call good evil and evil good.
What next Baby Murderer of the Year Award?
and a few verses down:
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man,
But the end thereof are the ways of death.”
Well can we all then start performing 60th thru 90th collective ‘abortions’ on liberals because we’re making a positive choice to save the collective? We all gonna get high 5’s for stopping a bunch of liberals from exceeding their CO2 expelling levels? One less useless eater, give me a damn medal.
Mr. Appell, your soul is in serious danger.
An abortion pride movement? Just when I thought I had heard everything...
I think Mr. Appel and Princeton “ethicist” Peter Singer(the one who’s pro-infanticide, necrophilia and bestiality) should meet.
Pride? How evil and profane can you get? These people are 100% pure evil.
