Thirty-nine years of “reproductive rights”–i.e., the “right” to have sex without bearing the risk of having a child.  Thirty-nine years of treating a child as a non-human.  Thirty-nine years of unorganized killing, with Planned Parenthood tossed into the abortion mob for some time.

Abortion is a simple issue derived from complex issues.  Killing an innocent child is murder, no matter the age.  This is not a case of the “potential of life” being destroyed, but rather a life-form being destroyed.  This is not a case of simply a mother’s right to privacy, because any other human has rights also–the right of life.  No woman has a right to murder because she made a decision she regretted.

The back-story behind each abortion is complex.  Sometimes a woman is scared.  Or feels unable/inadequate to raise a child.  Or feels like she can’t do it.  Or feels inconvenienced.  Or is surprised and can’t think of how to react.  Whatever.  The sociological, economic, educational, familial reasons may be complex, hard to sort out, and conflicting.  But the back-story doesn’t change what the action is: taking innocent life.

Hitler was a complex character with an interesting back-story: Jewish mother, failed painter, ordinary foot-soldier.  His personal history has no bearing on the rightness or wrongness of his actions.  We can all agree on this.  Similarly, it does not matter what a woman’s particular back-story is: the rightness or wrongness of her actions are not predicated on her financial status, personal feelings, or anything else.

The sadness of it all–the wickedness of some people–is that abortion isn’t necessary.  It can be avoided with self-control.  It can be avoided with birth-control.  It can be avoided by putting the baby up for adoption–many couples can’t have babies of their own.  It can be avoided by talking through fears and uncertainties with a counselor–often for free through counseling centers who believe in life.  It can be avoided by thoroughly thinking through the options instead of making an impulsive decision.  Sometimes doing the right thing isn’t easy.  But living a rewarding, blessed life is never easy.

Allowing people to murder their way out of mistakes is a misguided morality.  To value one life over an innocent one is a tragedy that occurs nearly everyday in America.  This evil will be judged, both personally and nationally.  There is a God who is just. The ruling from His court will overrule the decision from Blackmun’s.  His words will drown out Obama’s evil speech.
