Dehumanizing abortion

Ideologues and sociopaths are able to dehumanize their victims. Murderous tyrants, such as Stalin, Mao, and Hitler, before they commit genocide, first reduce their victims to subhuman vermin or troublesome abstractions. Hitler and radical Islamists portray Jews as insects and animals.

But we've seen this same practice closer to home. When Lincoln's generals set out to execute the 'final solution to the Indian problem,' they disengaged their consciences with such slogans as 'the only good Indian is a dead Indian.' Sherman first proved himself the right man for the ruthless 'March through Georgia' by his brutal ethnic cleansing of the Indians. One Lincoln general announced: 'It is my purpose to utterly exterminate the Sioux . ... They are to be treated as maniacs or wild beasts.' Sherman called his policy 'a racial cleansing of the land.'

A genocide still closer to home is the mass murder of unborn babies. First, the victims are depersonalized as fetuses, as parts of the mother's body, as masses of tissue: then they're destroyed without compunction.

Pro-abortionists justify the killing as 'choice,' 'reproductive health,' 'access to health care,' 'right to privacy,' and other soulnumbing sophistries. Thus, President Obama recently marked the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision with a statement calling on the nation to 'recommit' to the principle 'that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.'

Obama said, 'We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman's access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom.' Only a person without conscience could engage in such Orwellian obfuscation. He doesn't dare call it what it is - a woman's socalled right to kill her unborn baby.

We aren't dealing here with morally whole people. They've lost what Scripture calls 'natural affection.' (Romans 1:31 KJV)
