John Bloom speaks graphically and accurately on a matter that we need to keep in mind as we work and pray for the end of abortion in our land. His article, Relentlessly Call Abortion What it Really Is” strikes to the heart of the matter,
The killing of children can be tolerated and even championed as a social good so long as we don’t call it what it is. Call abortion an individual’s right to privacy and you can write it into the legal code. Call abortion a compassionate choice offered to a frightened girl to save her future or to save a child from an undesirable quality of life and you can swing popular opinion. Call abortion a liberation of women from the social and economic oppression of male dominance and passionate people will march on capitols chanting demands to preserve the human right of abortion on-demand.
We have allowed legal child-killing on-demand for 41 years because we’ve called it something else… Here’s the point: truthful tongues save lives. Legalized abortion is an evil that occurs and is tolerated because of deceptive words. And it’s truthful words that are required to clear the fatal fog with clarity.”
This is why we must call abortion what it is – murder.
