Abortion is unethical
Sahih International translation:
And when the girl buried alive is asked
This blog has wavered on the abortion issue. It started out pro-life; two years ago it went pro-Sanger. There was since then some stuff about - against - creatures like Kermit Gosnell but there, you might be able to intuit, such posts were here because I felt I had to put them here. I have never been a fan of the infanticidal practice. I have been wavering over to what degree it might be permissible.
So now all this has happened. Also, as MWR has put it: Planned Parenthood will
I now see that the inherent problem with mid/late-term abortion (I mean, besides the death, and the corruption of the Hippocratic Oath) is what is done afterward with "tissue" that is, biologically, a baby. If the procedure which extracted such tissue is done in a medical setting, the remains are now available for whoever owns them. The problem has migrated to economics: it is too tempting for the remains to be resold. Planned Parenthood is the beneficiary; they now have an interest in not stopping unplanned pregnancies - like police-unions have an interest in mass chaos. To the point of forcible rape, as MWR again:
This might not have been as true in Sanger's day, maybe not even in Gosnell's; but here we are in 2015. And the West has lost the maturity as a political system to block such conflicts of interest, if it ever had it. We are, as a civilisation, now at the pass where we reward people for creating children whom none involved in said creation have any intention of raising; which childrens' bodies we will then hawk in the marketplace, as food.
There's a case to be made for that. But this blog shan't be making it.
