Americans concerned about the ease with which abortions can be obtained, not to mention government subsidies for some organizations that provide them, have warned for years that such changes in our society might lead to the crossing of a terrible line - to infanticide.
That is killing a baby after it is born, a thought that horrifies most people.
But not everyone. A former abortion provider in Philadelphia is on trial right now for killing babies he took from their mothers during late-term abortions. The man allegedly killed babies who might have survived had they been given medical care.
A few days ago during a hearing before members of the Florida legislature, a Planned Parenthood representative was asked about the position of her organization, perhaps the single largest abortion provider in the country, concerning babies in effect born in late-term abortions. She struggled for a moment before telling lawmakers that deciding whether to attempt to keep the baby alive ought to be left up to its mother and the attending physician. Remember, the question involves so-called "viable fetuses" - babies able to survive outside their mothers' bodies if they are given appropriate medical care. Withholding care kills them.
The Planned Parenthood official's answer was stunning - so much so that her organization later insisted it favors providing medical care to babies in such circumstances. But the representative's failure, even after being asked at least twice, to say that is troubling. It may well be a warning that some in the "pro-choice" camp no longer view that line - between caring for a child and murdering him or her - as sharply as do the vast majority of Americans.
“That is killing a baby after it is born, a thought that horrifies most people.”
Killing before it’s “born” or after it’s “born - both are murder. One is no more horrifying than the other.
the only difference between abortion and infanticide is having met the person face to face.
those that are ok with abortion would be ok with flipping the switch on people they’ve never seen
This incident is useless unless we have audio and video. Text and eyewitness counts for nothing.
“Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Jesus Christ (paraphrased)
If only everyone thought like this there would be no abortion or other forms of murder here on earth. The final abortion will be when God aborts all those who did not trust in Him. They will be denied life in heaven for lack of moral perfection.
Don’t forget “love your neighbor as you love yourself.” That little baby is our neighbor.
Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Leftists obviously hate their neighbor.
“Leftists obviously hate their neighbor.”
Yes, and oft-times they hate their neighbor simply because they, like the suicidal Judas, hate themselves.
(Just a little exploration into some of the “chemistry” of all this.)
UNLESS ONE HAS WITNESSED AN ABORTION WE DON’T NEED BELLS AND WHISTLES.
