Why is it that a society can be so deeply deeply contradictory with respect to so-called human rights as to deny the outrageous holocaust of abortion? I feel so impotent about the thousands of lives taken in the war on the unborn and partially born. And doubly impotent about the cover up that means so little balanced public discussion is allowed to occur. And triply impotent because the horror of abortion is such that sane, mature people don’t want to dwell on it or pass around the images or the details. Two cases recently in the news: one is the US doctor now convicted of murder. Archbishop Cranmer comments here (but WARNING: the details and photos are appalling.) And in Australia a brave doctor has spoken out after someone procured an abortion on the grounds of sex selection.
