Matthew at Creative Minority Report in response to an article where 92% of children with Down Syndrome are aborted titles his post “We are not a Pro-Life Nation.”
Which is exactly right. Even many that label themselves pro-life are not fully so. I know I once described myself as pro-life while support abortion in the case of rape and incest. So I was semi-pro life with inconsistent caveats. Plus how many people declare themselves pro-life while seeing nothing wrong with IVF and the storage of human beings in a freezer? Or the pro-lifers who say life is a gift from God while actively frustrating that gift via contraception not to mention using contraceptives that have an abortafacient mechanism.
The new eugenics with the destruction of children with Down Syndrome is sad beyond belief. We condemn what lead up to Nazi ideology while accepting the idea of “life unworthy of life.” While more and more people are coming to be opposed to abortion on some level we have a very long way to go before we could be called a pro-life nation.
