Sometimes we achieve clarity when we put an ideology into a different context. Our news media superficially celebrates those who fight for “equality” while denying it to millions through the violence of abortion. They go all Lady Gaga over someone who will stand for a whopping 11 hours to demand the death of innocent human life. Christ endured real torture including having his fleshed ripped from his back and being hung on a cross; I’m pretty sure it was more physically tasking than standing in place in comfy pink sneakers. The difference? His sacrifice was so others wouldn’t perish.
But what if Jesus were to have embraced a “prochoice” worldview? What would that look like?
We could kiss salvation goodbye. Adoption is at the heart of our soul’s redemption, yet it is a maligned consideration on the “prochoice” periphery. (Planned Parenthood aborts over 149 children for every 1 adoption referral). In addition, considering 51% of pregnancy in the U.S. are “unintended”, more than half of us would immediately be written off as unwanted, therefore disposable, and certainly not worth eternally saving.
A “prochoice” Jesus would be the ultimate hypocrite having his own life spared from a single teenage mother scenario only to condemn to death others in similar circumstances. He, like the Jesse Jacksons of the world (who was conceived in rape like I was), would enjoy the grand possibility of life while others the grim inevitability of undeserved death.
