Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation

In the U.S. today the default church (protestant and catholic) is a large church, often with a large mortgage, that has a vested interest in creating as large a tent as possible to get as many butts in the seats before the praise band starts up. Can this church realistically oppose abortion to the extent that they are willing to say it is murder and a 18-year-old young woman who has an abortion should be put to death herself or sent to prison for life? If you're serious, say what the punishment should be for having an abortion in the U.S. if abortion is illegal. I'm not saying I disagree with you that abortion is heinous, but you need to reconcile your faith in evangelicalism with your convictions on abortion. They are inconsistent.

Imagine for a moment that your home is invaded by thugs who will do harm to your family, or perhaps even kill them. But then one of them takes a look at your three children and offers you a sinister Faustian bargain: pick one to die and the others will be allowed to live.

Would you helplessly choose one of your own children to die so that the other two may live? Would you trust a person whose moral conscience is so far gone to even offer such a deal to live up to his end of it?
