Abortion Rights and Gosnell’s House of Horrors (cont.)

Mark Steyn, the great polemicist, is at it again, with more information on the Kermit Gosnell house of horrors that masqueraded as a clinic. I am not sure I have much to contribute to the links and descriptions. I will warn you that this is not for the particularly sensitive.

As I noted in an earlier post, there are consequences for abortion rights. There are moral markers that every society lays down, and our decision to not only protect, but promote, abortion rights in the United States, has consequences. Roe v. Wade has been an important part of our culture. Feminist thinkers now orient their political rights around the right to abortion, and we have defined ourselves too much by our sexuality. Of course, more than abortion happened. The PILL happened. Gay rights happened. Feminism happened. While I will not pretend to get at this issue in a brief post, we now live in a culture that glorifies sexuality and denigrates those at the margins of life. This is simply where we are. Anyone who pretends otherwise is delusional.
