The Abortion Religion: or, the baby isn’t really dead
Last week, pro-life media outlets broke the story of a pro-abortion children’s book entitled Sister Apple, Sister Pig. The lead character in the book is a little boy who is happy about the fact that his sister was aborted, because “If you kept my sister, you would be tired, and sad, and mad!”
A set of supernatural beliefs which justify abortion on the ground that the victim of an abortion isn’t really dead.
The Abortion Religion also takes the idea of reincarnation from Eastern religions, but divorces it from the corresponding ideas of karma and ahimsa (non-violence). So, for instance, when a 15-year-old girl who was raised to support abortion became pregnant, she aborted the baby and declared:
Did I feel sad? Yes. Do I regret it? No! Because I know that the spirit I named Mariah will go on to a woman who is ready for her.
The baby isn’t really dead; she’s just become a spirit named Mariah who will reincarnated as another woman’s baby.
The Abortion Religion uses Christianity as well. Late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd, who was once a Baptist minister, prays over his victims, asking “that the spirit of this pregnancy returns to God with love and understanding.” The baby isn’t really dead; she’s just been returned to God.
And so it falls upon me, as someone with no supernatural beliefs, to look like a jerk by pointing out the obvious: the baby is dead. Abortion killed her, and it was permanent.
If you regret an abortion and believe that you will be reunited with your aborted child in the afterlife, I hope that belief brings you comfort. Truly I do. I have no quarrel with peaceful religious people.
But the moment religious beliefs are used to justify violence toward a human being, I have a duty to speak up. And when abortion supporters blather on about pro-lifers “imposing their religion,” while themselves ignoring basic scientific facts about preborn life and adhering to the Abortion Religion, you’d better believe I am going to call that out.
