A Look At Fetal Deformity: Handicap No Justification for Abortion or Infanticide

In 1971, the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a resolution on abortion which called upon society to affirm “a high view of the sanctity of human life” but to “work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion under such conditions as rape, incest, clear evidence of severe fetal deformity, and carefully ascertained evidence of the likelihood of damage to the emotional, mental, and physical health of the mother.”

Forty years experience has shown that to only permit abortions for the health of the mother as defined above is equivalent to outlawing abortion, except for when somebody wants one. Although the SBC reaffirmed this position in 1974, by 1980 a pro-life position won out:

“We favor appropriate legislation and/or a constitutional amendment prohibiting abortion except to save the life of the mother”

It wasn’t until 1982 that Continue reading

Time For A New Pro-Life Campaign Strategy, Senator Santorum

Rick Santorum is a stalwart on issues pertaining to the family and abortion.  He may end up being the one I vote for in the Iowa Caucuses.  He is certainly courageous and willing to stand for all of the unborn children, regardless of how they came into this world.  For this he should be commended.  Frankly, I have trouble understanding why he isn’t doing better in the Iowa polls after traveling all over the state meeting voters one-on-one.  He is likeable, knowledgeable and conservative on all three of the traditional Republican stool legs (economics, social issues, defense). I have a few small beefs with some of his political choices, as I think he “plays the game” way too much, but I have very few differences with him in policy.

Nevertheless, I make one plea of Senator Santorum.  Please, please, stop touting your authorship of that impotent piece of legislation called the Partial Birth Abortion (PBA) Ban Act. There are several reasons why you should stop, now. Continue reading
