No the purists want to be faithful to God, the author of life, not to political expediency.
There is no need for logic here. The Roman Empire used logic. There is simply the need to adher to law of God.
Negotiating away the very lives of some proportion of innocent human beings is pretty damn cynical.
What’s next..negotiating away some percentage of handicapped? mentally retarded? aged? infirmed? ...just to save some? Let’s get what we can get and the rest be damned!! Bull Shit.
When our leaders debate war and peace issues, we do not come down with an iron clad, “my way or the highway” -— “you are with us or against us” doctrine.
On death penalty issues, we allow the States to decide, and the States determine if they want the penalty or not, and under which circumstances.
NAME another issue that has ever come up in history, that we were morally required to treat as an “all or nothing, no compromise” issue?
Even in the Civil War, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation only freed the slaves in REBEL States, not the border states or the loyal states!
Incremental ism is morally justified, on the path to a desired goal! More to the point, not that you have to support every decision the Catholic Church comes up with, but the Catholic Bishops have often supported legislation that OR and ALL and the other "purists" oppose! We need to BANKRUPT the abortion industry. We should do so by passing as many restrictions as we can, every time we get the chance, but you and people like you actually have served to make George Tiller a rich man!
Currently, NONE OF THE BABIES HAVE RIGHTS!
We are not “negotiating away” any rights, we are establishing rights, or trying to, baby by baby.
The all or nothing approach is prideful, stupid and immoral!
