THE ECLIPSE OF REASON
The slippery descent on the abortion slope has truly become a veritable
landslide into madness. The abortion lobby in both Canada and the United
States has reached the extreme of apparently defending any abortion, no
matter how advanced the pregnancy and no matter how developed the child.
How utterly bizarre that in both countries it is perfectly legal to deliver
a late term infant feet first, stab the baby in the base of the skull,
insert a suction tube and suck out the babys brain - a procedure medically
defined as "partial-birth
abortion." There is one reason and one reason only to perform this
procedure, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, and that is to deliver a
How does the public reconcile its outrage at the news of teens dumping their
newly born babies in trash cans or flushing them down the toilet and remain
silent on this grisly procedure - or, as President Clinton has done twice
already, even veto a ban on
it - that is never medically necessary, and done on healthy mothers carrying
One thing is obvious, the committment of the medical profession to abortion,
the dedication of courts and accomodating legislators to oblige abortion
advocates no matter what they demand, far outsteps the wish of the people
who overwhelmingly still want strict limits imposed on abortion.
Partial-birth abortion is best described as the delivery of a child followed
by an act of horror. It is unbelievable that anyone born, raised, and
educated in this country could participate in such a barbaric ritual. This
method is among abortion procedures freely practiced here in Canada, and our
tax dollars help pay for every one. Partial-birth abortion, like all
abortions, destroys the life of a child and tortures women both mentally and
physically in ways never imagined by the abortion lobby pushing for
legalization of abortion some 30 years ago.
If our doctors, lawyers, judges and politicians can be party to the
brutalities inherent to these late-term abortions with not a hint of regret,
then the moral corruption of these professions is frightening indeed.
The ban on partial-birth abortion instituted by many U.S. states have been
strongly and, in many cases, successfully overturned by courts. It
absolutely boggles the mind that we`ve arrived at such a low point in
today`s so-called civilized western society that it is necessary for courts
to determine whether or not we should allow the killing of babies during
delivery. The horror of partial-birth abortion is virtually beyond
imagination. It marks a new low of depravity by those advocating abortion.
Try defending, if you can, the act of plunging scissors into the backs of
heads of live babies whose entire torsos are outside their mothers` wombs
and then sucking out that child`s brains.
The world needs to take notice of this savagery and to denounce it as an
abomination. This loathsome slaugher each year of innocent babies is the
culmination of the basic abortion "rights" tenet of an unlimited "right" to
a dead baby.
Nobody knows how many partially born babies are killed each year, but the
number may run into the thousands in the US and perhaps into the hundreds in
Canada. William Jefferson Clinton has the power to save the lives of many
of those babies, but he intends, instead, to use his veto power to prevent
them from coming under the protection of the law. It would seem that this
president can find redeeming value in a killing technique that can best be
compared to the barbaric manner in which victims are snuffed in
slasher films. Presidential aspirant, Steve Forbes expresses it perfectly:
"It`s stomach-churning...to see the President of the U.S. so devoid of any
genuine moral sense and fiber." Unfortunately the liberal media have made
themselves willing accomplices of his by consciously not emphasizing the
brutality and horrifying moral implications of this abortion technique.
Even the most diehard pro-abortion feminists know that a partial-birth
abortion is a ghastly atrocity. That`s why it can`t be discussed fully and
frankly in public and its procedures shown in detail on television. It has
to be sanitized with words like
"pro-choice" or "abortion rights." The reality of a doctor taking a baby
from her mother and mashing up her brains with scissors is so awful that it
cannot even be admitted into debate. It is so bad, that even the killers
cannot admit what they are doing.
Some have been quick to fall for President Clinton`s trivialization of
partial-birth abortion. Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura in a recent interview
said he wouldn't support a
partial-birth abortion ban. "That's like having the Legislature determine
when someone can have an appendectomy," he said.
But, despite all this, there now appears to be light at the end of the
tunnel. For the first time, with the advent of partial-birth abortion,
people are looking beyond the cheap sophistry and self-serving rhetoric of
the abortion industry, and they are
connecting the dots. The soft underbelly of the abortion industry is now
being fully exposed. On reflection, people will ask themselves if it is
shocking and inhumane to jam scissors and a vacuum hose into the head of a
partially delivered baby, why is
it any less violent, shocking, and inhumane to dismember the bodies of
children with surgical knives, or to dislodge and destroy babies with
hideous suction machines (20 to 30 times more powerful than a household
vacuum cleaner), or to pump dangerous chemical compounds, including
extremely high-concentrated salt water, into the unborn babies` environment
so as to poison the child?
There is a striking passage in Dostoyevsky`s 'Crime and Punishment': "Man
can get used to anything, the beast!" Partial-birth abortion is certainly
the ultimate confirmation of this affirmation.
