After years of blogging with Adventists on the “Club Adventist” forum about abortion, I have discovered that no matter what argument I use in defense of the unborn’s right to life, those who oppose my views end with the following entrenched position:
“Abortion is wrong, but women should have the right to choose!”
So let me see if we can apply the same policy to other areas of our moral behavior:
- Rape is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
- Sexual abuse of children is wrong but men should have the right to choose!
- Burglary is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
- Terrorism is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
- Slavery is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
- Homicide is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
- Genocide is wrong, but men should have the right to choose!
Here is my question: If you agree that all the above described moral actions which cause harm to other human beings are wrong and must we punished, why do we insist that in the case of abortion, women should have the right to kill their own children with impunity?
Why is this a sacred cow for abortionists? Why does society grant abortionists the privilege to profit from the greatest harm imaginable: dismemberment and poisoning of innocent victims without due process, without anesthesia, and without the right to appeal which even the worst criminals are entitled to?
- Why is it wrong to rape, but right to kill without being punished?
- Why is it wrong to sexually abuse little children, but right to execute the unborn without any legal consequence?
- Why is it wrong to steal and burglarize, but right to ask for the death of innocent unborn children with any legal repercussion?
- I hope you get the idea!
And why do we allow our church to leaders to compromise with this great moral evil by permitting our own hospitals to offer elective abortions on demand which represents a direct violation of our own “Guidelines on Abortion” and even what the Lord wrote on tablets of stone with his own finger?
Should not our leaders apologize for this deviation from moral duty? Should not we pray, fast, and seek God’s forgiveness for this great sin?
