I think abortion is more than just logistics and poverty and economics, more than situational, it’s a symptom of sin and a lack of Christ in the lives of most people these days. A solid Christian who is grounded in the faith of Our Lord, come hell or high water, would never commit the sin of abortion. My wife and I are so pro-life that we would’ve done ANYTHING rather than have to commit an abortion. We need to look at the causes of abortion, which are religious gaps, religious voids in people’s lives. Secular culture has done a bangup job of convincing folks that abortion is somehow like going in to have an in-grown toe nail taken care of or having a wart burned off. They’ve depersonalized the fetus and the love and sanctity of human life.
I hear liberals in politics say, “We don’t like abortion! We want to make it safe but RARE!” It’s an absurdity to say such a thing? Imagine if it’s NOT wrong, then why would you want to make it rare? We only want to make things rare that are IMMORAL or evil like homocide, kidnapping, burglary, incest, etc. Why, if abortion is a “right” and an aid to women (supposedly) would we want it to be made rare? The answer is, it’s NOT a right or an aid to women or anything the fruitcakes of the secular media have portrayed it to be. Colleges and liberal institutions have morphed abortion into a boon or an equilizer for women.
I applaud the idea of all Christians whether they are Anglicans, Lutherans, Catholics, Orthodox, Methodists, heck, Mormons, anyone, including Muslims, Jews, Hindus, everyone out there fighting the heinous and disgusting crime against humanity we call abortion. Instead of Catholics disecting and ripping apart Protestants in here at CAF and Protestants having a bone to pick with Catholics, all this ecclesiology warring and invalidating each other’s pastors and theology, maybe a bit more focus on the war on abortion might be fruitful!
