At 8 weeks, this “thing that has no rights whatsoever” (to a liberal) begins to get its groove on, moving and wiggling. Garsh, who’d a thunk it?
At 12 weeks, this “candidate for death” starts yawning (must be overhearing Hillary speak) and performing finger movements (probably also at Hillary). 3 At 20 weeks, this “tissue” starts making facial expressions, such as smiling (who knows . . . maybe it actually feels loved?).
At 24 weeks, the little mister or miss is sucking its thumb, making emotional facial expressions and can stick out its tongue when he or she hears Pelosi blather on CSPAN.
With 3D and 4D ultrasound imaging advancing daily (www.littlesproutimaging.com), how a person can say that an unborn baby is not yet a person and can be killed at Mommy Dearest’s discretion is barbarically beyond me.
I guess the left and the pink conservatives callous their hearts to the unborn by rejecting a proposition central to Judeo-Christian thought regarding life and death: namely, that life is intrinsically good, and is therefore, sacrosanct.
Yes, these secular barbaric “tools” see human beings as tools; and if they don’t somehow fit instrumentally within the secularists’ Darwinian, utilitarian utopia, they get tagged as “inconvenient” and are relegated to the “very expendable” list. That’s why abortion is no big deal, and neither is taking the life of a so-called defective child, or suicide, or “mercy killing” a helpless senior. But God help you if you should ever run a boat’s prop over a manatee’s back! They’ll get pissed!
In contrast with the secular “elite,” the “stupid,” “non-elite” and “archaic” Judeo-Christian constituency views human life (beginning at conception and lasting until the person naturally croaks) as intrinsically good and thus, sacred—not just instrumentally good.
The Judeo-Christian community believes that all people—from the embryo to the elderly, including severely developmentally disabled, people in comas and everything in between—have dignity and value. As Robert George said, “Their significance is not based upon what they can do, or how they make us feel or whether or not we approve of their quality of life, but principally because they live.”
And not only does the Party of Death (as Ramesh Ponnuru calls the liberals in his latest book) advocate the death of the unborn and the inconvenient, but they also want your tax dollar to pay for their death wishes, for all parents to butt out of their teen age daughter’s abortion plans and for the US to continue to stay left of Europe when it comes to abortion on demand. Consider all the above, those of you on the left and the right who cherish the unborn more than a sea cow, when you cast your vote during the mid-terms and when you’re looking for a candidate for ‘08.
