Why Abortion Is Wrong
Because it's morally wrong.
Morals matter. "Thou Shalt Not Kill" is not just a suggestion. A society
with a preponderance of immoral people can quickly descend into a Hitler
Germany or a Saddam Hussein Iraq. That's why.
Abortion is ultimately selfish. People want to pleasure themselves at will
and then look at pregnancy as an inconvenient, disposable product of sex.
The pro-abortion crowd has unfairly hijacked the Fetal Stem Cell Research
issue in a very unfair way as a means of legitimizing abortion
and making it seem more palatable. Many women that have had abortions feel
horrifically guilty and even suicidal afterwards because they suddenly
realize they've paid someone to kill their child. Killing a child is a curse
on the lives of those who engage in it.
The pro-abortion crowd has twisted the Stem Cell Research issue, and
really placed this potentially life-saving medical research in real
jeopardy. Aborted fetuses are not the only source of fetal stem cells. Fetal
stem cells can be grown in a laboratory without an abortion EVER taking
What kind of person would want to encourage the legitimization of child
To try to systematically "take advantage" of someone else's immoral
behavior is wrong, because it ends up only encouraging and legitimizing the
behavior. In this case the "bad behavior" is of the most heinous and extreme
Should companies use the research results from the systematic experiments
the Nazi's did on the captive Jews during World War II? Would you use a
lampshade made out of human skin? I wouldn't go near it. Should we use
shrunken heads as decorations just because we have them?
If someone is willing to push for the use of aborted fetuses for any kind of research
or as a supply of what amounts to body parts then they should be
willing to have a human skin lampshade in their home without feeling
squeamish about it. There's plenty of dead human skin available from
cadavers -- why don't we put it to a "good" use rather than burying it? Why
do we have more respect for dead adults than we do murdered babies? What is
the difference between using human skin lampshades and using the living
cells of children who's lives are taken from them before they even have a
chance to live?
Good, uplifting things cannot come from radically bad immorality. Is it
possible to name one case where it has? I think not.
