What Abortion Does to Us

I wrote this several years ago, and obviously before Roe was overturned. The case against abortion rightly focuses on the harm to the unborn. But …

What Abortion Does to Us

I really like what madblog writes here about the deeper truths of rampant abortion and how it changes us as a people. It’s very thought provoking and offers some much needed depth to the hollowness of the usual strawman arguments that saturate abortion debates today. Please click on the link above and give it a read, it’s well worth your time.

For the record, my personal views are the same as Bill and Hillary Clinton’s, at least the 1990s Billary who coined the phrase, “safe, legal and rare.”

How quaint, right? We are far, far away from this today, where abortion is too commonly accepted as birth control and where pregnancies in most blue states can be terminated at any time up until birth. That is not a sign of a healthy society.

The SCOTUS ruling is good for the country, as it transfers power away from judges and back to the people, who can finally have real debates about it and decide for themselves if they want their state to have it and vote accordingly.

For that to happen we need better discussions with a focus on truly improving the situation for women and society as a whole, not emotional hyperbole to score political points. Madblog’s post is a great place to start.

  3. There is a basic principle at work here that Plato taught 2400 years ago. He asked why is living a just life better than living an unjust life? After all, we only live once. Why not go for the gusto? Cheat suckers for all they are worth, Exterminate anyone who gets in the way. Exploit people for riches and for the pleasure and hell of it.

    Plato observed that just acts render harmony not only to the person who commits them. But that harmony radiates out from the just person. The opposite is true for unjust acts. They render disharmony to the person who commits them. And disharmony radiates out from the unjust person.

    Since abortion is a heinous injustice, the cold blooded murder of an innocent person, great disharmony will result.

  5. Of all the disturbing things to come out of the Covid shutdown debacle, I think the one that caused me to lose the most sleep was the absolute indifference of the elites in charge of our institutions to the suffering of children. A society that doesn’t care for its children is on the fast track to the dust heap of history (if you’ll excuse the mixed metaphor). Where did this callous indifference, and sometimes outright hostility, toward children come from, anyway? I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count.

    Well said bob. Our children and the elderly are society’s most vulnerable group and just look at how they were treated (and still are bing treated in some areas) during Covid. It really brought to light the staggering indifference the elites have towards them. Towards us too but the effects towards the vulnerable are the most catastrophic.
