When I went to medical school, Henry Morgentaler came to give a lecture on a course on human sexuality. Many of my classmates and I peppered him with questions about is it right to abort for sex selection, for convenience for holiday etc. he inevitably said it was not right, but he believed in abortion on demand so morality made no difference. I suspect Morgentaler is morally conflicted about abortion , but doesn't say it publicly. I am told he will not do abortionas after 18 weeks. Kelly McParland also boxes in those who seem to stridently support abortion.
Abortion has been become a mass slaughter of women in the world and blacks in the US, yet the supporters of abortion seem to ignore thses issues and trumpet abortion as a victory for feminism. It is a tragedy for women.
If you believe a fetus is not a human life, the fetus becomes no different from any other unwanted appendage on a woman's body. There is no moral difference to removing it than there is to removing an unwanted mole, or an unsightly wart. It's just a bunch of flesh, with no human soul or spirit to it, so what's the difference?
Why, then, would abortion proponents object to women having abortions because they don't like the sex of the fetus? If a fetus is not human, a woman has the right to abort it for whatever reason she chooses: because she doesn't feel like going through the process; because it might interfere with her career plans; because she doesn't like children in general; or because she loves Starbucks and someone told her she'd have to give up caffeine during the pregnancy. What, no latte?
For most of us, of course, abortion is a morally serious procedure, far more complicated than having a mole removed. But if you're pro-choice, everything I've written in the paragraphs above applies.
