Murderous Pride

I almost lost my lunch earlier today when I ran across this article suggesting the need for an “abortion pride” movement.  I don’t suppose I should have been as surprised as I was, but there it was:

He complains that women who have abortions are “rarely encouraged to take pride in their decisions.” Calling abortion a “courageous and noble moral choice,” Appel wrote, “Women who step up to the ethical plate and have the strength to say, ‘This is the wrong time,’ or ‘This is the wrong fetus,’ should hold their heads high in the streets.”

This quote tells you all you need  to know about the moral vacuum that exists today.  Killing a child is considered by some a “courageous and noble moral choice.”  Don’t just murder your baby, be proud that you did it.  I daresay that this movement wouldn’t be as successful as he might hope if I didn’t know the depths of human depravity.  Who says that the Bible doesn’t speak to modern man.  Paul wrote of this attitude nearly 2000 years ago:

28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:28-32) (emphasis mine)

Sounds like God might have seen this coming.  Or maybe it is just the fact that there really is nothing new under the sun.  Pride is a sure indicator of rebellion against God and in this case, pride is murderous.

  1. When you hear stuff like this you have to wonder just how much longer God is going to put up with this sin-soaked world.

  2. Bad as it is now, it is going to get worse.

  3. 5 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD. 6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, 7 maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.” (Exodus 34:5-7)

    We serve a very merciful God who has always been more merciful than we can comprehend, but we live in a world determined to test His patience and compassion. I don’t know how much longer His compassion will hold back His judgment.

    Wow – I have no words to tell how sickening this is to me. “this is the wrong fetus” is probably one of the most disgusting quotes I have ever seen.

  5. I am with you, sister. I couldn’t believe what I had read and I couldn’t let it go by without some kind of comment. The arrogance shown in that attitude and language is unfathomable to me.

  6. Stunned. Shocked, although I guess I shouldn’t be.

    Woe to our nation!
