OUCH!


This is a very clear and definite comment on a most divisive argument in present day America. It pits present day now conventional wisdom that life may be defined by current science/law understandings versus traditional Christian theological thought 2000 years old.

A Point well made!!!

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and  said:
‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your  help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.
So the doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’
She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m  counting on your help with this.’
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’
She  smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued:
You see, in order for you not to have to take  care 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way,  you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill  one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for  your body if you chose the one in your arms. The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How  terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!
‘I agree’, the doctor replied.  ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.
He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb.
The crime  is the same!
