THE UNBORN AS CRIMINAL AGGRESSOR
It was just a question of time before the fanatic pro-abortion/pro-choice
supporters decided it was time to cross the Rubicon. It seems the decisive
step was officially taken with the recent publication of the book, "Breaking
the Abortion Deadlock from Choice to Consent," written by a leading
pro-choice activist. The book demonizes the 'criminal' unborn and then
makes a case for justifiable homicide.
What follows are some excerpts which clearly reveal the abominations to
which can lead the pro-abortion mindset of radical feminism, so prominently
examplified nowadays in the
author`s academic milieu. It will be difficult in reading this to realize
that the object of discussion is not a life-threatening virus but an
innocent baby nestled in the womb:
"If we`re going to treat the fetus as if it were a person, we must respect
it enough to hold it responsible for what it does. When the fetus 'makes a
woman pregnant,' it occupies and tyrannizes her body, rerouting her
circulatory system, enlarging and displacing internal organs. Abortion is
right because she refuses to consent to this fetal tyranny. The fetus is a
variety of kidnapper and she has the right to repel it with deadly force.
What`s more, the state is obliged to assist her and pay for
abortion with public funds."
"...even in a medically normal pregnancy, the fetus massively intrudes on a
woman`s body and expropriates her liberty. If the woman does not consent to
this transformation and use of her body, the fetus`s imposition constitutes
injuries sufficient to justify the use of deadly force to stop it" - as in
"rape, kidnapping or slavery."
"The law must hold the fetus accountable for what it does" as it violates
privacy. "... the fertilized ovum makes her pregnant without her consent."
"Although the fetus is innocent of conscious intention and cannot control
its behavior, it is not innocent of massively intruding on a woman`s body
and liberty. Far from being the slave that is sacrificed in an abortion, the
fetus is the one that enslaves the
woman when it imposes a wrongful pregnancy."
"Abortion, therefore, is not comparable to a person`s choice to take a
vacation; rather, it is comparable to a person`s right to use deadly force
to stop his or her own kidnapping."
The author continues throughout her justifiable homicide book to compare the
unborn child to a rapist, kidnapper, one that uses "brute force." She writes
"If a woman has the right to defend herself against a rapist she also should
be able to use deadly
force to expel a fetus." Comparing an unborn fetus one wants to abort to a
rapist is ludicrous and insane. This is a death sentence without a hearing.
Even the rapist is entitled to a lawyer.
One would think reading this book that women give birth to little Al Capones
- all smoking cigar!
This supposedly dignified discussion of child killing has drawn rave reviews
from several of the author`s colleagues in academic circles - some in their
ivory towers even invoking the term "morality" to justify this terminal
violence against the unwanted
This inhuman woman/ugly fetus message is not new. In fact, it probably
reached its high point at a 1985 rally of 3,000 feminists in Barcelona,
Spain. During a break in the
proceedings, two pregnant women were aborted in "decisively courageous"
defiance of the law. As reported in the New York Times, "Two fetuses were
presented in bottles to the convention. The hall rocked with cheers."
Dante certainly couldn`t have conceived of a better description of Hell!!
We have now arrived to the point in enlightened North America where radical
feminists portray pregnancy as a battle in which a woman and a baby are
slugging it out. Worse still, we have so cheapened human life that
something as innocent as a baby must now be demonized as a criminal in order
to justify its impending execution.
While the pro-life arguments have remained consistent all these years, the
arguments for abortion have been ever-evolving to grapple with suppressed
truth. And this is what they have led to in their logical conclusion - the
effort to construct a truly
bizarre fireproof shield around the right to abortion, for which even
reality must be bent to serve it. A parent who would rightly be viewed as a
monster for expelling and killing a child, because it temporarily and
harmlessly shared the parent`s resources, is now told it can legitimately do
so at any time in her unborn child`s prenatal life.
The saddest part of all this, however, is that the public will probably
unwittingly swallow this macho-feminist propaganda that casts mother and
child as enemies of each other. Once again we see the poison fruit of
abortion - total moral decadence.
Incidently, the author of this book is a wife and mother of two!
