The New “Extreme”: To Let Live, Instead of to Let Kill

What would you call extreme: killing a human life, or letting it live?

The dictionary defines extreme as the farthest possible point from something. In the political arena, it means using violence to achieve one’s ends.

But the term is often misused and demagogued. One of them most egregious misuses of the term is when advocates of legalized abortion call opponents of abortion “extremists.”

Killing a life is the most extreme thing one can do, especially when it’s an innocent pre-born human life.

A letter to Congress co-signed by more than 30 pro-abortion groups stated a pro-life measure by a congressman (banning abortions motivated by the race or gender of the fetus) was “simply more of the same from the anti-choice extremists in the House.”

The irony is breathtaking.

It’s like as if Peter Singer, who advocates the legalized killing of already-born human babies – one of the most extreme things one could ever do – were to call opponents of that practice “extremists”.

It’s like Macbeth, where fair is foul and foul is fair. It’s like Orwell’s 1984, where the Ministry of Peace, Ministry of Love, Ministry of Truth, and Ministry of Plenty were responsible for doing the very opposite of what their names suggested.

“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words,” says a character in 1984. People in the pro-legalized-abortion lobby could be thinking the same thing.

Abortion in America Leads to Gender Imbalance in Asia

Interesting book review in the WSJ about the surplus of men in developing countries caused by selective abortion against females.

There’s one thing I would add to that. Abortion in the U.S. and Europe exacerbates the dearth of females in Asia.

There’s an absence of adoptable babies in the U.S. and Europe because they’ve all been aborted. So people resort to adopting them from Asia, especially China and Vietnam. The only available babies are girls, because boys are so desired in Asia.

Not only does abortion here lead to kidnappings and a black market of babies in Asia, as detailed in an earlier post, but it results in fewer females in Asia due to adoptions. See the book review on the  consequences of there being too few girls in society.

Therefore, abortion in Asia directly leads to Asia’s gender imbalance. Abortion in America indirectly leads to Asia’s gender imbalance.

Roe vs. Wade’s China Problem

Yet another ill effect of Roe vs. Wade and the abortion industrial complex: kidnapping babies in China.

The thousands of dollars that Americans pay to adopt children from that country have transformed “once-unwanted Chinese girls into valuable commodities worth stealing.”

Americans go abroad to adopt babies because there are so few of them available here in the United States; most unwanted babies are aborted.

Who’d ever have thought that one result of legalized abortion would be child kidnapping rings on the other side of the world?
