Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you. ~President Barack Obama
The man who curses guns in the name children is the same man who blesses abortions in the name of God.
These are confusing times.
Our moral hypocrisy couldn’t be more blatant. Consider the slaughter house run by Kermit Gosnell. Why is the media largely ignoring this trial? Furthermore, why (as of May 10) has the jury been deliberating nine days?
Could it be that our thinking is so dichotomous that we are paralyzed between two worlds?
Have you wondered why the jury in the Kermit Gosnell multiple-baby-murder trial in Philadelphia is taking such a long time reaching a verdict? This may be the real reason why: For most of us, the death of a child is just about the most tragic event we can imagine.
In the world of crime, one of the most incomprehensible acts is baby-murder. We’re outraged at the widespread sex-selective infanticide of newborn girls in China. And recent headlines like “Georgia boys face murder charges after cold-blooded killing of infant being strolled by mother” and “Black teens murder white baby for the fun of it” cause us to shake our heads and wonder, How could anyone possibly sink so low as to kill a baby?
However, parallel to this moral, rational world exists yet another world – an amoral, irrational one, constructed over several decades with great effort and cleverness.
In this strange parallel world, the same killing of a baby that in the real world outrages us and results in prosecution, prison and possibly execution (or lifetime confinement in a high-security psychiatric lockup for the criminally insane) is mysteriously transformed into a “medical procedure” and “constitutional right,” provided for and fiercely defended by a multi-billion-dollar industry. And funded by taxpayers.
To further illustrate the selectivity of our moral outrage; consider this headline grabbing news sensation:
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty told reporters that aggravated murder charges could be filed in connection with miscarriages that police say one of the abducted women suffered when Castro used force to terminate her pregnancies after repeatedly raping her.
Let’s be clear: Ariel Castro may be charged by the state of Ohio with five counts of murder because he “used force to terminate her pregnancies.” And yet, in this same state, the great state of Ohio, doctors under protection of law use force to terminate pregnancies hundreds of times a day.
Where’s the moral outcry?
This isn’t new. Remember the name Scott Peterson?
From July 6, 2012:
Scott Peterson on Thursday filed the automatic appeal of his 2004 death sentence to the California Supreme Court, maintaining as he always has that he had nothing to do with the murders of his wife Laci and unborn son Conner.
In California, where preborn babies are legally butchered for money, this man was sentenced for double murder when he was convicted of killing “his wife Laci and unborn son Conner.”
What? I thought a fetus (Latin for “baby”) wasn’t human? How can Scott Peterson be guilty of murdering his “unborn son” if the preborn are less than human?
This is more than moral confusion. This is moral psychopathy.
On Monday, May 13, 2013, Gosnell was found guilty of 3 murders in the first degree. Such a finding only highlights our moral and philosophical schizophrenia. How can a baby be human outside the womb but non-human inside the womb? What magical transformation occurs as the baby traverses the birth canal? Madness!
