We all marvel at how an entire nation like the Germany of World War II could support the murderous Adolph Hitler. Indeed, Hitler perpetuated the lie that the Jews were somehow “the problem.” His most ardent henchman, Joseph Goebbels, is famous for saying that if you repeat a lie many times people will eventually believe it as truth. There is a perfect correlation today on how many people, including religious Christians, Jews and others can believe that a perfectly healthy baby can be killed, as long as it is in the mother’s womb. Take the recent Dr. Gosnell murder trial where he killed babies after the baby came out of the womb. He routinely snipped the neck of the struggling baby on the table to kill it. This outraged most people and Dr. Gosnell was convicted of first degree murder.
A reporter recently asked Nancy Pelosi what is the difference between what Dr. Gosnell did and the killing of a baby in the womb? Pelosi opposes any law limiting partial birth abortion, even though she claims to be Catholic. She gave an angry convoluted answer, which did not address the question, but trotted out “a woman’s right to choose.” Watch this video of Pelosi responding to this question – it’s a classic. This is contrary to all logic, yet many people, including good friends of mine who attend the same church I do, cannot admit that there is no difference. They keep stating the nonsensical answer that women have “a right to do with their bodies what they like,” or words to that effect.
What has happened in our society, world-wide, is that the lie about abortion has been repeated so many times, and indeed everyday, that these people believe it as truth. There is no difference between what the Nazis did to six million Jews and what we do today to unborn babies in the womb; the Nazis killed innocent human beings and we kill innocent human beings in the womb. What supports this claim? Science has verified that human life begins at conception; logic tells you that the baby in the womb is the same baby in a mother’s loving arms, a few minutes after birth. Natural Law, the law written in all of our hearts, tells us that murder is wrong. You don’t need to be educated to know that murder is wrong. Should you have any questions about this, just go to anyone in the world and ask them if murder is OK. Another example of the law written in our heart: let’s say I come to your house and before I leave I take you nice new Nikon Camera that you spent $1,000 without your permission. Would the owner of the camera say that was wrong? We know, by instinct, what is right and wrong. Abortion is the killing of a human life and it is wrong all the time, under all circumstances.
