What Abortion Does to Us

H/T to https://freedomthroughempowerment.wordpress.com/

Madblog has written a thoughtful post. I am particularly struck by this paragraph.

Abortion infantilizes us. When we grow up, we learn that things happen which we didn’t plan for. Sometimes we should have foreseen the consequences of our actions, and sometimes unforeseen things present themselves regardless of our actions. Whichever the case, we must meet life’s challenges, take responsibility, and make the best outcome we can, though perhaps no possible outcome is what we would have chosen. Life isn’t perfect.

Taking responsibility is the act that distinguishes an adult from a child. Children want recreational sex. Adults understand that sex comes with unavoidable consequences and obligations. That is why an adult man and an adult woman insist upon the public commitment we make in the marriage ceremony before having sexual relations.

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 New American Standard Bible
The Body Is the Lord’s

12 All things are permitted for me, but not all things are of benefit. All things are permitted for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, however God will do away with both of them. But the body is not for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are parts of Christ? Shall I then take away the parts of Christ and make them parts of a prostitute? Far from it! 16 Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “The two shall become one flesh.” 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. 18 Flee sexual immorality. Every other sin that a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought for a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

It is worth contemplating the ways in which the two become one. It is worth considering that even when pregnancy does not result from sexual relations, the sex act has serious consequences. That is why even when “sex partners” use contraceptives sex is not for children. Instead, “recreational sex” is the sinful misuse of a God-given gift, a sin against one’s own body.

Messages from the Mythical

I wrote this several years ago, and obviously before Roe was overturned.

The case against abortion rightly focuses on the harm to the unborn. But what does the abortion culture do to us?

It desensitizes us. I hardly need illustrate this point. A comedienne recently celebrated abortion via patriotic parody on Netflix. Basically nice people put on vagina hats, put vagina hats on their minor female kids, march them along to protest in the streets, enjoying the tribe vibe, then go back to work and school and friendly society sure of their moral superiority while nurturing a constant state of rage against their family and friends who believe that life is a right belonging to all human beings.

It dehumanizes us. We keep our human status, but we lose the context for what it is to be human. We lose the criteria for deciding what being human is. We lose…

    Now if only children were taught in school to believe the essence of your Bible verses instead of what they seen on TV and movies,………

    Sad.

    1. Given the enthusiasm the most rabid “Prochoice” advocates display for abortion, “Prochoice” advocates obviously think they are doing more than disposing of an inconvenient piece of tissue. Child sacrifice is the most likely possibility.
