Morality Down The Tubes

ABC News had an interview with an abortionist in the US which can be watched online through this link...


He states that he has aborted 10,000 - 12,000 babies in his career! First and foremost, be God grant His mercy and welcome them into His Kingdom.

He says that "life begins at conception". He knows that he is killing human life. Yet he has no problem with that. Why doesn't he have a problem with that, because the baby will be a stumbling block to the lives of the mothers who are pregnant. He does not advise them to adoption because of one case where he had a patient who had 2 children and gave them both up for adoption and killed herself. First off, the suicidal act doesn't necessarily mean it is connected to this mother's giving her children up for adoption. Needless to say, I was sickened by what this man had to say. He had no reasoning behind his arguments and I do pray that Judge Alito will bring some moral correctness to American law. I wish the same could be said for Canada, but we're on a moral downspiral.

Watch and let me know what you think. I would also object to his definition of personhood...there are two types of personhood, ontological personhood and psychological personhood. Ontological (Ontology is the study of being) personhood is the person's very essence, who they are without any interactions. It is their nature. Every human being has an ontological personhood at the moment of conception, it is the blueprint for their personhood. Psychological personhood is based on one's experiences, how they interact and relate with the world. This is something that does not come until their brains are developed enough to be able to interact which, to my knowledge, happen at the later stages of the pregnancy. Anyways, my point is that we all have personhood at the moment of conception, but this is not something that can be proven by science, and so it is not developed at all, it is something that can only be explained through philosophy.

Just keep on praying, we need to continue praying for all those unborn babies and those mothers who feel they have no other choice. If they would only put thought into it...God, please have mercy on us all.
