It is estimated that 32,000 Americans die every year from opioid overdoses. Some of these people were well-meaning patients in pain with well-meaning doctors who sometimes over-prescribed pain killers. Others were drug user wanting another high, and 13,000 of these deaths were from heroine. What could be worse than our opioid epidemic?
This year, supposedly well-meaning parents and doctors will kill one million children through abortion. While the parents believed they had a choice, those children had no choice. Those children were denied the right to decide whether or not to try to be doctors or lawyers or presidents, or to make right or wrong choices about drugs. Their lives, which could have included being 80-year-old grandparents, were taken from them before their first breath.
Abortion is the killing of unborn children and it is morally defended on the ground that the unborn are not full persons. The killing is justified on the basis that the unborn are not full persons. The developing child therefore is described as a mere mass of protoplasm in a pre-human state. This ignores the fact that the developing child quickly assumes human form and that it can never become anything but a human being made in the image of God.
