Killing for Convenience

A report issued this week reveals that there has been a slight decrease in the number of abortions performed in Britain. The total number which took place in 2009 was 189,100 down from 195,296 in 2008. The fall is obviously good news, as far as it goes, and has been welcomed by the Department of Health, however, it has to be acknowledged that even the reduced figure is the equivalent of the population of Portsmouth, or three times the number killed in the bombing of Hiroshima. Irrespective of the tiny drop, in the two year period between January 2008 and December 2009 the number of lives eradicated amounted to just a few thousand short of the total population of Bristol.

Just over 3,800 of the procedures performed last year were on girls under the age of 16, however, the huge majority, over 185,00 were performed on adult woman. Some will have been the victims of rape, others will have been emergencies, where the woman's life was at risk, and in just over 2,000 of the cases, the child, had it lived, would have been disabled. However, as is always the case, these types of abortions, which are always held up as examples to justify why legalised abortion is so essential, will have accounted for a small minority of the total.

By a significant majority most abortions carried out last year, as in every year, will have fallen into the category which can reasonably be described as killing for convenience where the child is unplanned, unwanted or likely to cause a complication in the mother's life.

It is odd that this is allowed to happen in a society as child-centric as ours where so many people's lives are ruled by the well being of their children, and live in daily terror of a significantly exaggerated fear of paedophiles. However, we have somehow managed to separate children from foetuses in our mind, as if they are different creatures, rather than the same being who has merely moved from one environment to another. The pro-choice lobby, it seems have successfully managed to convince people that if you can't yet see a human being, it is a disposable commodity, and that a foetus, no matter how fully formed is not really a child.

We live in a society where a woman's right to choose, or in some instances, to change her mind, is considered of greater importance than the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.

Worse than that, in a troubling number of cases it does not appear to matter how many times a woman may wish to exercise her right of choice. As I have stated here before, for most of these women the abortion is the second choice, given that she had already had the choice not to have unprotected sex. However, beyond that the report reveals a quite disturbing statistic. Almost 3,700 of the women who had abortions in Britain last year have had at least four terminations. In fact 48 of them have had seven or more abortions.

Surely it defies credibility that all these women been raped four or more times (even if you believe that rape justifies terminating a healthy child for the sins of its father) or that they have been unlucky enough to face so many life threatening medical emergencies when they happen to be pregnant.

Certainly some will have had reoccurring complications and others will for genetic reasons will have produced disabled foetuses, but surely these will have been a minority

For whatever their reasons, thousands of women in this country appear to have chosen to repeatedly terminate the lives of their unborn children.

How can that be justified?

It is hard to escape the suspicion that a minimum of 15,000 children fell victim to serial killers in 2009, and, as this happened in the health service, we as tax payers aided and abetted in those killings.

Abortion as a matter of convenience is one of the great horrors that has been introduced into Western society within my lifetime. When I was a child, a very long time ago, such a thing was utterly unthinkable. It was clearly murder, and everyone knew it. It would have been included in the same category with cannibalism, just as it should be today.

The statistics that Sarah has reported are grim indeed. They show a society that has hardened its heart to the point that it will take better care of its domestic pets than it will care for its own unborn, and about to be born, children.

We would not stand idly by while anyone vacuumed the brains out of their pet dog, but their unborn child, oh, sure, that is just fine. Or perhaps inject the pet cat with saline, and then begin to rip it limb from limb, well, no problem there, is there?

We hear about the "burden" that children are. Have we forgotten that children are God's blessing upon us? Children are only seen as a burden by those who are still immersed in their own immaturity, and who in selfishness think that they can have more "things" if they do not have the "burden" of children. In so doing, they fail to recognize the rich blessing of family, the sense of connection with the past and the future, the sense of purpose, of living for more than just yourself.

Consider this verse: Ecclesiastes 11:5 As you know not what is the way of the wind, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so you know not the works of God who makes all.

It is of little value to know the biochemistry of how the embryo develops in the womb if you do not understand the connection of this developing child to all of creation, including yourself and the God who created you both. This is the source of the low value placed on the lives of our children; we have lost sight of the Lord God who creates us all, and who still moves in the world yet today. Thousands of years ago, the ancient peoples of the Mideast were sacrificing their children to the various fertility gods and the God of Heaven put a stop to it by sending His people with His message. When people hear His message, they preserve their heritage. When they turn away from Him, they destroy their children and their future with it, just as we see happening here.

Sarah tells us of 48 women that have had seven or more abortions. It seems clear that there are 48 serial killers on the loose in the UK, fully known to the authorities. This is unmistakably convenience, not a matter of accident, mistake, crime, or any other quasi-justification, just convenience pure and simple. Murder for convenience. It is a frightening thing to think that there are women who hearts are so hard that they will murder their unborn children for simple convenience, and do it over and over again! These are animals. said...

What is the difference between a white western woman and an Australian aborigine?

White western women do not normally eat their babies after they kill them.

Thanks, Sarah. Abortion is child sacrifice, plain and simple: an evil practice which brings a curse upon our society.

Since abortion was legalised in the USA in 1973 there have been over 40 million abortions that is twice the number of casualties there were in World War 1 and some two thirds of those killed in World War 2.

If you were to add America and Western Europe together the numbers are in excess of WW2 and close to matching both wars combined.

These are state sponsored acts carried out in peace time and with the consent of the population. I wonder if God or nature will ever forgive us.

Sarah Maid of Albion said...

Correction, I got the figures for WW1 casualties wring, the numbers of abortions in America are not twice the estimated 37 million killed in WW1 however, they are in excess of that number.

My question about God and Nature remains

Abortion is wrong .period. A nationalist who does understand that butchering 7 million tiny healthy white Britons since 1967 is racial suicide is not thinking straight. check out a real abortion film on and then make up your mind.

I hate to break it to you but infanticide has been practiced as a form of birth/population control throughout the ages.

Personally, I think abortion is more humane then to leave a baby in the wild to starve or an orphanage to die as was common in Europe.

And for those ladies having 7 abortions - if they are too stupid to know how to use birth control then i think the real tragedy would be a living child with its life depending on this women - death is truely a gift in that case.

Well possibly but still murder.

The scale of modern infanticide is on a different level. Liberal-Marxist Scum would argue till their teeth fall out that a serial killer has a right to life but an unborn innocent....

Sarah Maid of Albion said...

You make an excellent point Against the Wall, the levels of pre-legalisation infanticide has been grossly exaggerated, as has the legendry "illegal back street abortionist".

There was nothing approaching the slaughter of just short of 200,000 a year we currently see in this country.
