An article that appears in the June 30, 2010 edition of The Times [London] represents a moral earthquake that resets an entire issue — and that issue is abortion. This chilling essay is hard to read, but impossible to ignore. To read it is to feel the moral ground shift under your feet.
In “Yes, Abortion is Killing. But It’s the Lesser Evil,” writer Antonia Senior acknowledges that an unborn child at any stage is a human life. But she then proceeds to assert that feminism is more important than life, and that, when necessary, women must be willing to kill for the feminist cause even as they are willing to die for it.
This is one you have to read twice to believe. Thanks to the folks at Crosswalk for the excellent commentary, which you can read by clicking here.
This issue is profoundly important, because it goes to the very bedrock of all–life. Who grants it? Who may take it? Is all life a gift? A curse? Are some lives worthier than others? How do we stand for life in a culture that has so wholeheartedly embraced death? We’ll be exploring these issues in depth at the upcoming Baby Conference in San Antonio. Hope to see you there!
