* Sanctity of Human Life


Events of landmark significance just happened in America. New York state has just legalized abortion of full-term babies up to the moment of birth. The state of Virginia is also pushing forward with similar initiatives. 

 

It is easy to think it can happen in New York, but it could never happen in Georgia. Think again. There are many fine Christians in New York who are appalled that this has happened in their state. Georgia almost saw a governor elected last cycle who was committed to making Georgia the abortion capital of the south. Those who want to radically change our country’s moral standards are hard at work and spending millions of dollars to achieve their goals.

 

The governor of Virginia, who is also a pediatric neurologist, recently made a statement that shows a clear understanding of infanticide: “So in this particular example (when the child is in the process of being born) if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

 

This is a “post-birth abortion.” Just image how quickly things can move from here. Is our next moral topic to discuss how long after birth an “abortion” can be performed? Once this threshold is crossed, where do we draw the line? Is killing a baby one week after birth ok? How about 12 weeks? Surely we would draw the line at no more than 48 weeks post-birth?

 

The danger is that if we as a society can justify killing our babies, we can justify killing anyone. All it requires is a vote to remove their “personhood.” Senior adults who get dementia, accident victims who lose body function, veterans with PTSD, or any other arbitrary group of people could lose personhood and legally be put to death. This is a literal outplay of where subjective morality leads.

 

Many are shocked that our society has come to this, yet it is not a shock to us in the pro-life movement. Those who promote infanticide have been methodical, cunning, and patient for years. Take for example a 1970 editorial in California Medicine which stated plainly, “Since the old ethic has not yet been fully displaced it has been necessary to separate the idea of abortion from the idea of killing, which continues to be socially abhorrent. The result has been a curious avoidance of the scientific fact, which everyone really knows, that human life begins at conception and is continuous whether intra-or extra-uterine until death. The very considerable semantic gymnastics which are required to rationalize abortion as anything but taking a human life would be ludicrous if they were not often put forth under socially impeccable auspices. It is suggested that this schizophrenic sort of subterfuge is necessary because while a new ethic is being accepted the old one has not yet been rejected” (“A New Ethic for Medicine and Society,” California Medicine, September 1970).

 

It is no accident that our civilization is at this moral crossroads. The radical powers have played their strongest hand. They believe that America has “rejected the old ethic” of objective Christian morality. They believe that the majority of our civilization holds to the “new ethic” of subjective secular morality. That is why these happenings are so historic. It is not just the events that are so significant, but that the political powers have judged that now is the right time to unveil their true agenda.

 

We at Choices are not a political organization, yet we have full freedom to speak on issues. Abortion is a moral issue, not a political one. The Church has the power and obligation to hold the state accountable for pushing immoral policies. The enemies of life stand brazenly cheering in the spotlight right now. They do so because they believe the people of America support the “new moral ethic.” 

People of America, it is time to stand up for life. You are not just fighting for babies, but for your own freedoms. The opponents of life believe that you are either sold out to their “new ethic” or just too apathetic to do anything about it. Will you stand with us to promote the reality that all people are made in the image of Holy God, or will you sit by as infanticide becomes the law of the land?  This is the time to act. Now. This tide of death can be turned, but we need your help. Jesus is on the throne. Through His high and holy name, we will stand for life.
