The typical Progressive Liberal confuses me, and quite frankly, I think they are confused as well. What they say and do are so contradictory to a rational line of thinking leaves me with multiple WTH moments. Let’s take the following “for instance”:
The recent expose of Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts and the reactions of various political figures is telling on many fronts. Forget about having a rational discussion – it’s all finger-pointing, misdirection, and “feelings.”
Let’s get down to the brass-tacks right up front – abortion is the willful killing of a developing human being, i.e., baby or fetus. It does not matter if the fetus is an hour old, a week old, a month old, or however old – the fetus is genetically human. This is a scientific fact and cannot be refuted except in today’s legal world.
In today’s tortured legalistic world, a fetus is not a human up to a certain point in time. After this time has passed, the fetus miraculously becomes not a mass of cells, but a person. But is that really true? How about the following true case.
During a robbery, pregnant woman was shot, causing her to lose the baby. The robber was charged with murder, but the defense attorneys countered that the baby wasn’t a baby in the legal sense since it was only 2-months old at the time of the robbery / shooting. Since the laws of the state at the time allowed for an abortion up to the 4-month mark, the fetus wasn’t a person, and that his client should be charged with a lesser crime. The court would have none of that, and tossed the defense motion & the robber was later convicted of murder.
So what does this tell us? If a baby is wanted, it’s a person no matter how old, and if the baby is unwanted, there’s an expiration date up to which to abort the baby? Exactly how insane is this idea?
Let’s stack this thought up with the typical Progressive Liberal mantra of “it’s for the children” for any and all governmental funding of boondoggles with taxpayer money for their favorite mismanaged social program. They always state that children should be protected and deserve the very best that can be offered.
Really? Seriously? If children are truly so precious, so innocent, so deserving of protection, should they not be protected from the moment of conception?
Obviously not in the view of the Progressive Liberal…
In their world, a baby isn’t a baby until it’s wanted by someone or past some legal date that has no basis in reality. After that point in time, they become a person.
How screwed up is that? To determine when a person is a person is like trying to figure out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. It can’t be done, and any rationalization is contorted legalized reasoning. Such was the falsified testimony during the “Roe vs. Wade” arguments which lead to the Supreme Court deciding that abortion was a woman’s right. Let’s be perfectly clear: To hide behind the statement that it’s “the law of the land” will not absolve anyone from the moral implications of performing or having an abortion.
However, is this really what we’ve come to? To determine when life is created from a legalized standpoint? That is exactly what our legal minds have come up with – a legal definition of life.
To reject out of hand that a fetus is not human is the most irresponsible attitude toward human life I have ever heard of. The fact is, science doesn’t know at what point a growing embryo ceases to be just a mass of cells and becomes conscious human life. In the absence of such knowledge, one should err on the side of caution. And barring any unforeseen issues, that mass of cells will become a human being in time.
But that fact does not deter many politicians from defending the murder of their fellow human beings, the most innocent and defenseless of us all. It is estimated that abortion has ended the lives of somewhere between 50 and 55 million children in the womb from 1973 to 2011.
Lastly, we, as a society, have become mostly numb to this “procedure” that has killed millions. What does that say about us? Not what we would like to think about ourselves, that’s for sure.
Save the whales, save the polar bears, save the Earth from
global warming climate change, save the trees, save whatever cause is in vogue this week – that seems to be what our Progressive Liberals want to focus on. What about save the babies?
