Connecting The Dots of Abortion

Abortion is the civil rights issue of this century.   Read the words of Martin Luther King in the fight to gain equality and disavow the “chattel”  or property status of black people.   The argument of the other side was:  “This is a freedom of choice issue.”    “Just because you think it’s immoral,  don’t impose your morals on me.”    Hijacking the word choice to equate killing of the innocent in the name of freedom,  is to undermine the very foundation of freedom.    

Martin Luther King said,  “The time is always right to do what is right.”    “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable…Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,   suffering and struggle;  the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”   “History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period…was not the strident clamor of the bad people,  but the appalling silence of the good people.”   “It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people.”   “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience,  but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”   “Every person must decide whether to walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.   This is the judgment.   Life’s most persistent and urgent question is,  what are you doing for others?”    “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God.”    “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of  God’s children.”

Pro-abortionists say,  “We feel abortion needs to be decreased but we must keep options available.”   That’s like a terrorist saying,  “I’m all for peace and justice,  but I need to have my options.”   If I need to kill,  that has to be an option.”   

Pro-aborts say,  “I feel sorry for women who feel they have been harmed by abortion.”    That’s like a wife  beating husband saying,    “I’m so sorry for your injuries honey,  I feel your pain.”   

“Our heritage and ideals,  our codes and standards,  the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we transmit those  values and ideals to the next generation.”    Allen Unruh
