A powerful quote regarding abortion from Tony Woodlief in World Magazine:
But I’ve come to believe that a nation that tolerates destruction of innocents deserves neither safety nor prosperity nor greatness. We’ve descended into barbarism, and it poisons how we treat the elderly, the incapacitated, even ourselves. We shouldn’t be surprised, having made life a utilitarian calculation, that more and more humans become inconvenient.
John Piper recently stated that God will not judge us for abortion, abortion is the judgment. The judgment for sin is more sin and the increasing inability to distinguish between good and evil. America’s collective conscience has been seared to the point that “abortion fatigue” has set in and many seem unfazed by its the utter horror of abortion. As a result, we have elected a man who would not support legislation to require doctors to provide medical care to infants who survive abortion.
And we have the audacity to call this “hope.”
Yes, we certainly do not deserve safety, prosperity or greatness if we care more about cheap healthcare for those of us who are alive than for those who need it most.
