The "Pro-Choice" Position is Just a Smokescreen for the Culture of Death

In a move that reveals that they are not pro-choice, the Obama administration revealed plans recently to remove safeguards that protect health care professionals who are opposed to abortion from being forced to engage in an activity they consider murder. Make no mistake, the main target here is nurses. Most doctors can avoid it by choosing other specialties and because they have more power within the system, although there have recently been moves to coerce doctors to refer for abortion against the Hippocratic Oath and their consciences. But nurses, most of whom are women, are often pro-life and afraid of losing their jobs if they do not participate in what they regard to be murder. Across the Western world there is a move to coerce nurses and other health care professionals into going against their consciences or losing thier jobs. See this story:

All this just shows one thing: the rabid pro-abortionists are not really pro-choice. They are only pro one particular choice. It is really about social engineering and eventual government control of human reproduction. As long as the social engineers can persuade and tempt women into doing what they want they are pro-choice, but when the abortion rates are high enough they begin to talk like this advisor to Gordon Brown's government, Jonathon Porritt, who was quoted by the Times of London recently as follows:

“We still have one of the highest rates of teenage pregnancies in Europe and we still have relatively high levels of pregnancies going to birth"

Note that the real issue for him is not the rate of abortions, but the number of births. He wants the population to be reduced - now - and is not squeamish about calling for government to get busy and make it so. The Times article goes on to note:

"Porritt, a former chairman of the Green party, says the government must improve family planning, even if it means shifting money from curing illness to increasing contraception and abortion."

Read the story here:

I suppose it make a macabre kind of sense - the less we spend on health care the more people will die, which is the next best thing to preventing them being conceived in the first place. The point here is that the environmentalist movement - Porrit is former chairman of the Green Party - is so fanatical in wanting to reduce the human population that it is just as happy to kill living humans as it is to prevent conceptions. Contraception, abortion, suicide, euthanasia - it is all the same to them; in every case a carbon footprint is erased. When you realize that these are the kinds of people the Blair-Brown government has been listening to over the last 14 years, you begin to see why the UK has moved so far down the road to Huxley's Brave New World.

The pro-choice position never had any moral coherence; it always begged the question of why this choice should be legal (i.e. the choice to kill). Now we are beginning to see what is really driving the culture of death. It is not choice or human dignity or human welfare. It is an anti-human, fanatical faith in death as the solution to all problems. And it is a rival faith to Christianity. One or the other must give way eventually.
