If this article were entitled “The Philosophy of Abortion is Demonic,” some readers would have never started reading, especially, after seeing that the author is a minister. It would have been a far more honest title, but trying to explain how the inspiration that originates with the “god of this world,” (Satan,) results in what is known as the “doctrine of devils” would be daunting.
The biblical teaching provides a definitive and decisive blow to abortion and all pro-abortion arguments from several perspectives, but one verse alone speaks to abortion in no uncertain terms. To wit:
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18: 6)
First, who would argue that ‘death’ for a tiny unborn human being (fetus) would constitute a very serious offense? Secondly, who has the right to decide the extent or fullest meaning of the words “little ones” in the verse? The meaning of the verse cannot be strained so as not to include the unborn, which are indeed, the littlest of all human beings.
It is not the lack of scriptural knowledge alone that plagues the credulity of the pro-choice movement, but rather, it is a lack of genuine honesty on many levels including its own philosophical premise or foundation.
The heart of the pro-choice argument is based on the argument or more accurately the deleterious notion that aborting ones offspring is exercising a woman’s right to decide all matters concerning her own body.
Pro-life philosophy is based on the belief that the child in the womb is not ever the woman’s body, but it is an entirely separate entity. The pro-life and the pro-choice view both raise questions that no abortion advocate has been able to answer yet. Let’s examine.
If the fetus is the woman’s body why would any woman do something harmful to her own body? We try to protect people from themselves who are prone to SI syndrome (self-injury) or suicidal. They are sedated, counseled, treated or incarcerated to keep them from inflicting bodily harm or death – to themselves. Only in abortion do we march, rally, advocate for and enact legislation to make it possible for a woman to hurt, maim and kill what they insist is their own body. More than a mere philosophical delusion this is high level stupidity and hypocrisy combined.
If, as the argument goes, the unborn child is part of the woman’s body, why doesn’t that ‘part’ of her body have the same rights extended to it, to choose, to thrive, and to live? The absurdity of ‘rights over a woman’s body’ fails to answer this question.
Why doesn’t a woman give up an arm or a kidney willfully? What we have is rights, but on a very selective basis. In every case, however, the part of her body she has decided against, the part that is discarded like waste material can be removed without any serious discomfort or pain to the mother, how convenient. Take the liver, the heart, the brain, they too, are just part of her body, but that will never happen.
