"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Forget zombies, vampires, and the other assorted imaginary embodiments of evil. This Halloween the most sickening, skin-crawling, and frighteningly real evil you can come across is just a click away for you at MSNBC.com, where abortion-rights absolutist Irin Carmon presents abortion as an act of mercy for which an Oklahoma couple should be commended, not grieved, and for which they should not have been inconvenienced in the first place by restrictive abortion laws.
The Davises are apparently unrepentant about the decision and even excuse it as an act of mercy. Indeed, the Davises were offended that local funeral homes refused their request to bury the unborn child they had legally murdered” Read more: here
Abortion as an “act of mercy” . . . this is a profoundly, mentally disturbed thought process. It also reflects extreme selfishness. These parents concern was for themselves and not for the ‘less than perfect life’ they were given. I could have more respect for this woman, if she had been honest and said she just didn’t want a child that wasn’t perfectly formed.
Is this what the nation has come too? Not just making excuse for killing a baby, but expecting to receive sympathy, respect and understanding? It was an “act of mercy”? No. It was an act of god like behavior, deciding who lives and who dies. An act which likely caused the baby to feel intense pain as it’s brains were sucked out or it’s body burned by chemicals . . . or perhaps killed after a live birth. This woman, these parents, didn’t commit a ‘heroic deed’ — they killed their child because it wasn’t convenient and would be developmentally changed, perhaps severally retarded. It was someone they didn’t want.
They admitted they live on “food stamps” and probably Welfare. I wonder, were they using birth control? It’s fairly cheap and in some instances can be free. Perhaps this was just one of those ‘mistakes’ — but we live with mistakes every day of our lives. Does this sound harsh? It should. At times, we’re called to be harsh when standing for what is right. As the author said, we have accepted calling ‘evil good and good evil’.
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” . . . the murder of the innocent, is still murder. “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” — Isaiah 5:20
