C.S. Lewis once described what it takes to become either a better person or a hellish one. When I think about this, I am convinced that his description suits those who spend their waking moments striving to convince everyone that aborting an innocent child prior to birth is nothing more than a healthcare choice.
One of the deceptions marketed by these folks takes aim at flawed abortion regulation laws, such as the Texas (SB 8) law. The propagandists and their physician allies say such proposals impede women’s healthcare choices. By employing the ruse that abortion is simply another healthcare choice, the facts are buried, and the results are obvious.
In our brainwashed society today, nobody gives a second thought to what it means to abort a child. This is so because pregnancy is viewed by more and more people as a problem in need of a solution. And voila, that is where abortion enters the picture. Today, more than ever, we see the results of failed education, failed media, and failed medical practitioners. Prominent among these is the media—and collectively it must be held accountable.
How often does the media remind its audience that pregnancy begins when the baby’s life begins or that pregnancy is a natural process, whereas aborting a child is a shock to the woman’s body, not to mention the intentional killing of her baby? Rarely. Back in the day, at least some media outlets allowed us to use pictures of fetal development during our appearances on their shows or newscasts, but not anymore. The media bias is palpable, and this contributes to national ignorance in an immense way.
Abortion has become so widely accepted that controversy surrounding the dangers of medical, chemical, and surgical abortion, not to mention clinical abortion, are simply not discussed or exposed. When it comes to babies prior to birth, America has become a nation of exterminators, and most people never even think of that, let alone become repulsed by the thought.
We can see evidence of this wide acceptance in California, where there is a requirement that all public colleges make medication abortion pills available to students. These pills end pregnancy during the first 10 weeks by causing a miscarriage to occur, but students could not care less, for they have learned that ending pregnancy is no bigger deal than the cutting of a hangnail.
Additionally, the availability of abortive birth control pills for adolescents and younger is no longer a source of debate or opposition but rather a fait accompli. In fact, one has a hard time recalling an instance in recent years where parents rose up and fought to stop the deadly pill from being readily available to their children.
Clearly the American abortion saturation level has become so severe that one can hardly imagine a way back to the days when loving and raising children never included the idea of medically controlling their reproductive organs!
To be pro-choice truly means choosing to be a heavenly person or choosing to be a hellish one. Which are you choosing?© Judie Brown
