Pro Choice & Consequence

Horror, disgust, revulsion, shock, disbelief. One could use any of these words to describe how a person with a conscience would react to abortion. Regret, anger, rage, remorse. Any of these could describe the range of emotions one might go through upon learning that these abortions were also procedures to harvest viable organs from viable babies in order for those viable organs from viable babies to be sold for profit.

Frankly, when I first saw the video of Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the price of viable organs from viable babies the only word that could properly describe how I felt was petrified.

But none of those words will be used by the followers of Moloch, in the media or in the Democratic party, though they are largely one in the same.

Instead we will once again be told about the virtue of choice, all the while ignoring the inevitable consequences that come along with the choices we make, both as individuals and as a society.

Before you make a choice to ignore the illegal sale of viable organs from viable babies in order to attain a profit for Planned Parenthood, you should ask yourself a question.

How will this choice shape the rest of my life?

You may think that this is far too dramatic a question, but every choice you make goes to determine the path you must travel. C.S. Lewis explained the concept of choice and how it determines one’s path rather well, so excuse me while I quote him extensively from ‘Mere Christianity’:

“every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow-creatures, and with itself. To be the one kind of creature is heaven: that is, it is joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state or the other.”

While individually many American’s have chosen to not have abortions, fund abortions, or support any businesses or organization which supports abortion, our nation long ago became the “hellish creature” on the issue of abortion. For over 40 years, since Roe vs. Wade made abortion on demand the de facto law of our nation, we have stumbled headlong into the “madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness” which has come as a consequence of our choice.

Choice, in itself, is no virtue. It is choosing the morally correct thing that we should encourage as individuals and as a society.

This episode will serve well as a barometer for where we are as a nation with regards to our morality, choice, and the consequences we must now face. As Lewis goes on to note “A moderately bad man knows he is not very good: a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right.”

Are we “moderately good” enough to see how bad we’ve become, or have we trapped ourselves in this “state of war and hatred with God” so deeply that we are the “bad man who thinks he is all right?”

It seems obvious the Democratic Party has indeed embraced their madness and pine for the abyss, but my hope is that there are more of us who understand choice and consequence, and that we’ve had enough.

Time will tell, but you can make a choice for yourself today and embrace the “joy and peace and knowledge and power” that comes with it.
