The Left Argues For “Post-Birth” Abortion, & I’m Not Surprised

“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.” – Arthur Conan Doyle

 

We are compelled as people to believe the best in others. We always give people the benefit of the doubt, thinking that no matter how wrong-headed their ideas, a good soul must lie underneath. We believe that it is the branches that become twisted, not the roots. It is because of this foolishness that we become desensitized to evil. We are so accustomed to assuming good intentions, that when evil—which has been in front of us the whole time—appears, we are shocked.

This apparent inability to recognize evil has hindered us in many ways. As conservatives, we have become completely blinded to the severity, and the disgusting nature of abortion. We debate it as if it is just another thing we feel passionate about. But the truth is that it is evil. What is being done to these children is evil. And when we glom abortion in with all the other issues, we lose our understanding of that. For example, recently, two “scholars” published an essay about the possible merits of “post-birth abortion.” Yes, merits. These men wrote that, in some cases, post-birth abortion could be seen as justifiable. They also attempt to justify the use of the term “post-birth,” rather than “infanticide.”

obama abortionThis essay flabbergasted some in the media, including Fox’s Brit Hume. Hume Tweeted his disgust:
“There are now people seriously arguing for abortion AFTER BIRTH.”
What I find interesting about this reaction is the surprise.Brit Hume actually seems truly surprised about this argument. But what he fails to understand is that post-birth abortion—or “murder,” as it’s called elsewhere—is simply a natural extension of the pro-abortion argument. I’ve said it a million and a half times, but I’ll say it again. The left has zero respect for life. They argue for the slaughter of infants inside the womb, up to and including partial-birth. So, my understanding has always been that if someone is willing to argue for a partial-birth abortion (Barack Obama, Barbara Boxer, etc), why wouldn’t they argue for post-birth? It’s the same thing. The only difference is geography.

Brit Hume underestimates the darkness into which he stares on a daily basis. To a staggering degree, conservatives in general severely underestimate the point to which liberal arguments naturally extend. At this time, they may not extend past a certain point, but the nature of their arguments is much longer and darker than we can imagine. Simply follow the logical string, and you will never again be surprised at anything a liberal advocates.

Abortion is infanticide. Infanticide is evil. Abortion is evil. The left supports this sick, wretched act in full, and we should never be surprised at the lengths to which they will go to justify themselves.

The only benefit to being able to see into the darkness is that it gives us the advantage of foresight.
I myself have looked into the dark, and I saw Satan himself. Abortion, the largest evil of our time, must be stopped.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.

    Disgusting….the truly disturbing aspect of all this is that abortion, and homosexuality among other things are becoming the norm and acceptable. The social stigma once associated with these things is becoming a thing of the past as this country loses it values and pursues anything and everything ungodly instead.

      You are exactly right, Greg. In fact in a complete reversal of truth and a lie, to NOT accept homosexuality and abortion is considered unacceptable, intolerant and judgmental! It is clear to see that evil has stepped up the attacks and completely twisted the word of God. Is it any wonder that Jesus said that small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life and FEW find it! Those on the wide road to destruction think that they can tell a holy God that he must accept what they think is right. That is the biggest lie of all.

    I agree with both Greg and Marianne, this is an abomination before the LORD. In the Old Testament God despised practices such as abortion and homosexuality. Since He is the same yesterday, today and forever why are we even asked to be tolerant of these government sponsored programs. Let us continue to speak the truth, and let God continue to use us to reach the lost. Praise God that His word is truth and never changes.

      You said it so right – God and his word is truth and NEVER changes. I just can’t believe how evil just keeps growing, Rabbi Eric! Abortion in itself is a horrific act of murder of innocents. Now they are seeking to kill an unborn child up to 20 weeks gestation. That is a point at which the fetus is viable and could conceivably live outside the womb. What is happening? Is the conscience of man so seared to accept the killing of over 55 million pre-born children as being okay and a “personal” choice?? How blind this world is. How foolish are the masses. They have no idea that they are merely puppets for the enemy as they continue in the evil of abortion and same-sex marriage. They think that they can tell God to follow their way or else for him to get out of their way. What an abomination! The justice of God will not be stilled much longer.

    Marianne, you know the world is just so oblivious and don’t even seem to know or care what is going on. As long as they get their needs met they just don’t care. What has happened? We have become a godless society, serving satan and not even aware. This should be of no surprise as bible reading, bible believing people. So the way I look at it we have a lot of work to do, and I personally look forward to the challenge as I serve the LORD. We are blessed to have this forum and I pray the LORD grows this site where it becomes a go to for every believer and those seeking the truth.

      I thank you, Rabbi Eric, because you are always ready for an answer backed up through Scripture for every challenge we face. In this “godless” society where we are being pressured to follow in the ways of the perishing world, it is good to hear a word of truth.

    My prayer partner and I pray together on a regular basis for women and girls contemplating abortion. We pray for the Holy Spirit to touch each one in a powerful, mind altering way – giving them a great love and desire for their baby, and a revelation of God’s love for them and their child. Keep crying out, brothers and sisters – Thank You for this Marianne.

      Mrs. CJB, you are doing the best thing ever by praying for those considering abortion! We all need to do that and keep praying because this country has thrown truth to the ground.

      God bless you, Mrs. CJB, and thanks for always sharing a good word.
