One Hundred Years of Death

On the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood, some celebrate, some mourn, and many millions are forever silent.

Here are two questions for reflection.

How did we give any kind of respectable profile to an organization which exists for the purpose of killing your unborn child?

 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

We have here an organization which will, if you so choose, halt your healthy pregnancy, and pull your unborn child out of you piece by piece, and call that healthcare. It is the champion of human rights. All while creating in your mind a scenario in which you, the victim, are in need of a defender against your mortal enemy: the child you carry.

The baby is your mortal enemy because allowing it to control your destiny, even for a mere few months, will end your life as you have known it. Your carefully-planned future would have to change, and you’ve been taught that any usurper who would wrest control from your grasp must be cast out.Your autonomy and your validity as a person is dependent on your right to kill your offspring.

At the same time, people who prefer to make legal abortion unthinkable, and who speak up for the voiceless and defenseless are called oppressors and haters of women. Backward and upside-down, calling good, evil, and evil, good.

But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
    all who hate me love death.Proverbs 8:36

Only by denying that death is death can Planned Parenthood be celebrated. Too many rationalizations must be made in order to celebrate.

How do pro-choice advocates explain the motivation behind pro-life advocacy?

It’s easy to understand the motivation for the abortion industry. Structurally and culturally, it is business-corporate. Money and power are humankind’s besetting downfall. Gratification of greed and power is instant and addictive. That’s easy to understand.

As individuals, we buy into the propaganda which best fits our need to feel that we are good people. For some reason, many people like the propaganda in support of a huge major corporation which exists for the purpose of freeing women from their unborn children. And somehow turn their support into a virtue.

But how do pro-abortionists explain pro-lifers’ motivation for the defense of the helpless?

X is vocalizing the motivations of every politician who votes to restrict access to abortion. It’s about controlling women. ~ Cecile Richards

That the best they can do? Politician X stakes his career, his giant pension and his reputation on an unreasonable, unpopular cause because..he feels a need to control women?

I have a hard time buying into the victim-oppressor scenario if I’m expected to believe men and women achieve personal pleasure each time a woman has to see a pregnancy to its natural conclusion BECAUSE it denies the mother her autonomy.

Can we at least admit that pro-lifers might have a more rational motive than the desire to oppress women? Can it be that pro-life people really care about the unborn lives who are in danger?

We have a command and a mandate. We have credible motives, respectable motives. Only by twisting noble motives into malicious ones can the pro-abortion rhetoric look passable.

    Thank you for your advocacy. When people start listening to each other and seeking to understand why they hold differing positions (rather than accusing each other of base motives), the nation and the world will become a far better place. J.

      I am truly distressed. When family members choose to misunderstand you and basically accuse you of “base motives” there’s not much you can do, but remember that this is how the ultimate division really starts. And that’s sobering and sad. It would become a better place but that doesn’t look likely.
