Travesty: Abortion as Charity!

The Associated Press reports that the only abortion clinic in central Arkansas is offering free abortions to victims of Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Jerry Edwards says, “If we didn’t provide it now, they would get it later — a late-term abortion that would give greater risk to the mother’s health.” Dr. Edwards says he has already provided six free abortions that would normally cost between $525 and $600.

The abortion clinic is called “Little Rock Family Planning Services” and was featured in this past Sunday’s New York Times in an article titled “Under Din of Abortion Debate, an Experience Shared Quietly.” The Times article tells the tragic stories of a number of women who came there to take the life of their unborn babies. Russell Moore and Al Mohler have both written fine responses to this article.

We should all be scandalized, however, at this latest AP report. Has our society really sunk so low that people now think the free termination of our children to be a charitable work? Not only does this compound the tragedy of abortion on demand in our country, but it also adds to the misery of these women, some of whom will likely experience the profound trauma of regret and heart-break that often follows abortion.

    “Has our society really sunk so low that people now think the free termination of our children to be a charitable work?”

    As sad as it is, yes we have.

    Look at how we are biting and devouring each other over the “mistakes” made after the hurricane. No one has mercy on anyone anymore. Of course we all know what we consider as comedy and normal on television these days is numbing us to the truth and we are accepting it.

    Abortion is without a doubt murder and scars the souls of those who have been deceived into doing it. But its only one of the many symptoms of the sin sick state our country is in.

    How much longer do we have or is it too late like it was in Jeremiahs time?

    Do you think our inability to complete the war in Iraq is just sign of His hand taken away from this country? I hope not, but I feel I hope in vain.
