“Tiller began providing abortion services in 1973. He acknowledged abortion was as socially divisive as slavery or prohibition but said the issue was about giving women a choice when dealing with technology that can diagnose severe fetal abnormalities before a baby is born.”
Now the question has been asked, to whom do they (NARAL) pray, when praying for the slain physician's family.
Tiller's position on aborting late tern pregnancies had to do with playing God. It goes like this, obviously: It is discovered that the baby may have an “abnormality” and so they just do away with it.
It is declared to be a woman's choice, but it never stops there in society. When people play God in the way Tiller did, the mind set, when unchallenged in a real and principled way, becomes the mind set of more and more people, especially the ungodly in government, who want to control individual lives. Tiller's mind set seems to create precedent for action on the part of people who seek power to control society.
When, therefore, this idea of playing God and choosing to end life for reason of “abnormalities” gets into the health care debate, it will have a big part in how decisions are made when rationing health care for everyone.
Eventually (and probably sooner than later) health care bureaucrats will employ the same thinking as Tiller did, but it will not longer be “choice.” When discovered that an unborn baby has “abnormalities” bureaucrats will decide that an “abnormal” child born into this world is an unacceptable burden to the system, and they will rule that the cost is too great. Conclusion: don't provide the services to deliver this baby, or . . . don't provide the services to care for it's “abnormality” after birth.
Result: abortion (not by choice) or infanticide, which is murder, but it will come to be accepted as normal. It will save money, you know, and reduce the stress on the funding for the medical care of “normal” people.
Eugenics, pure and simple. That is where we are headed.
Forgive the double post; not intentional. First one looked as though it had failed.
