Not Many Fans of Late-Term Abortions


I (obviously) am not a fan of abortion.  Most people aren’t.  All abortions kill a human person and leave another (the mother, sometimes the father and other family members) scared physically, spiritually, emotionally, or all of the above.

But one thing is for sure – Most people REALLY aren’t fans of late-term abortions.  Can you blame them?  A late-term in-utero baby looks much more like you and I as opposed to a first-trimester baby.  Doesn’t make it worse.  Killing is killing.

It’s fascinating to see the latest outrage against late-term abortions.  Leroy Carhart, a late term abortionist started performing his specialty Monday, December 6th in a new location – Germantown, Maryland.  Over 600 pro-lifers showed up on opening day to pray and be a public witness.  That is an awesome showing.  I was very impressed.

Then, the first Saturday of his business (Dec. 11th) over 600 pro-lifers showed up to pray and to be a public witness. Again, awesome!

Last night, (Dec. 13th) over 150 reported pro-lifers showed up at a City Council meeting in Council Bluffs, Iowa to protest another proposed late-term abortion facility opening up by, you guessed it – Leroy Carhart. Again, major awesomeness!

So, as you can see late-term abortions really rile people up – and rightfully so.  But aren’t all abortions the killing of a human person?  Why does the killing of a late-term abortion freak everyone out but not so much as when his or her younger brother or sister is being terminated via abortion?  Aren’t all human persons equal regardless of age / level of development?

I don’t mean to be a downer.  I am really excited that so many people are coming out to oppose abortion.  But where are these same people when it comes to first-trimester abortions?  If abortion kills a human person and we really believe that, then we should be just as horrified when a 12-week old baby in-utero is killed as a 22-week old baby in-utero.

Thoughts?

    I don’t know…maybe it has to do with the lack of knowledge on fetal development. I know that I was shocked to learn how developed an 8 week fetus was. Maybe people are thinking ‘Oh, at that point it is still a clump of cells.’
