Abortion, New York, & the Wall

Graphic pictures of the hidden brutality of abortion would make even a New Yorker squirmish. Perhaps prenatal killing is a tragedy to be avoided and not a “right” to be celebrated.

Some people want a wall to keep illegal aliens out of America. Others want abortion to keep their own children out. In America, killing soon-to-be-born family members is often called “family planning.”

Prenatal life in America is “at risk.” It’s dangerous to be alive and unborn in the USA. 

Historically Americans have been cruel to their own children. Many slaveholders enslaved theirs and abortion kills them. For centuries it was legal to abuse African-Americans. Now legal abuse has shifted to the unborn. (The US Supreme Court has supported both forms of human abuse.)

The victims of past American slavery and the victims of present-day abortion are dehumanized to justify their abuse. If history saw the victims of American slavery as fully human then slaveholders would be seen as tyrants, not as heroes.

To encourage and/or support the destruction of one form of human life is to devalue and disrespect all human life. Apologizing, grieving, and repenting for abortion seems much more appropriate than celebrating it.

Prenatal deaths should be mourned, not celebrated. When the right to avoid personal inconvenience is made greater than the right to life something is really wrong.

Thinking about America’s ongoing prenatal killings sometimes causes me to lose sleep. “Thumbs up, thumbs down,” to live or die–sounds more like the Roman Empire than “liberty & justice for all.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
