This Isn’t Meddling — It’s Murder


Euphemisms are the refuge of moral cowardice, and no euphemism is so cowardly or so deadly as “reduction” — a word that sounds like math, but really means murder.
Jenny was not “having half an abortion,” for she was aborting a baby who was just as alive as his or her twin. The “reduction” of multiple pregnancies is now part of the practice of obstetrics, though largely kept from public view. -- AlbertMohler.com –

Your Say

The best reason I ever heard given for opposing abortion was given by a Christian minister testifying before Congress, and it was simple and to the point: "Because Christians do not murder their children."

I could not read the entire article. The contents infuriated me. I believe I will go with Jewel's comment because she wrote it perfectly.

“Ethics,” Dr. Evans told Padawer, “evolve with technology.”

However, technology has evolved so rapidly in the medical community, ethics are lagging behind.

But by buying into the concept of 'ethical evolution', the battle is half lost already.

Where do you evolve from "You shall not murder"?

One of the more laughable assumptions currently being made is that if just elect the right politicians we can turn around the decay and decline of this nation.

No culture that tolerates, let alone condones, the extermination of future generations in the womb for the sake of convenience will ever demonstrate the steadfastness, prudence, thrift or courage needed to make the sacrifices or stay the course long enough to effect anything close to the change needed to correct the decline.

WOW! Where is it written that ethics evolve? Show me any of the Great Religions that have shifting ethics.

As a T'aoist my ethical principles can only grow more firm.

Secularism isn't a religion nor a philosophy. It's a childish escape from responsibility from one's actions and observable reality.
When your chosen side suddenly becomes an ugly philosophical position, you cannot deny owning it.
Squishy ethics are no ethics

Unless I fell off the turnip truck yesterday, my comments were geared towards right and wrong, justice and crime, or morality. Didn't think ethics was strictly relegated to religion. My comments are directed towards the medical community.

An example of ethics not evolving with technology is the article we have read. Or, another example would be women who go to fertility clinics close to being social security recipients trying to become mothers for God knows what reasons.

Or this critter in California otherwise known as Octomom.

These are the ethics I am commenting on.

Or, did I just fall off the turnip truck and miss the point of this blog?

Posted by: Cilla Mitchell, Galveston, Texas at August 19, 2011 11:46 AM

I didn't miss that. I just cannot see ethics being that narrow; ethics is the atmosphere in which we swim/breathe.

Either you are an ethical person or you are not.
Can't be a little bit preggy.
