When Abortion Suddenly Stopped Making SenseI borrowed the title from this post from the actual article I wanted to bring attention to. “When Abortion Suddenly Stopped Making Sense” is a recent piece at the National Review by Frederica Mathewes-Green. The story of what changed her mind on abortion is quite interesting and well worth your time to read. I don’t think this is an exaggeration, this is a prophetic piece. Particularly the last few paragraphs.
Here’s a quote:
“When people say the unborn is “not a person” or “not a life” they mean that it has not yet grown or gained abilities that arrive later in life. But there’s no agreement about which abilities should be determinative. Pro-choice people don’t even agree with each other. Obviously, law cannot be based on such subjective criteria. If it’s a case where the question is “Can I kill this?” the answer must be based on objective medical and scientific data. And the fact is, an unborn child, from the very first moment, is a new human individual. It has the three essential characteristics that make it “a human life”: It’s alive and growing, it is composed entirely of human cells, and it has unique DNA. It’s a person, just like the rest of us.”
