Abortion After Tiller and the Slippery Slope

Several weeks ago, friends of ours gave birth to a baby whom they knew would not survive. My daughter and many of her friends attended the funeral honoring this little boy, who had been well-loved by his family pre- birth and is mourned, by name, in death.

I thought of this family when I read the following article from the Witherspoon Institute which points out a changing approach to Abortion and presents clear evidence of a loosening of moral arguments against infanticide in our country.

Quality of life arguments naturally lead me to thoughts of euthanasia for non-productive elderly adults. How soon before lawmakers begin looking at our parents or ourselves in a future vegetative state and wonder whether they should prolong our lives?

“The “traditional Western ethic” holds that life is valuable and inviolate simply because human life is good and it is not ours to take. That ethic is increasingly challenged in our culture..”
