We convince ourselves that they simply don’t realize what they’re doing. If only they could see – and honestly look at – the ultrasound pictures of an unborn child. If only we could convince them that what they consider a “clump of cells” is a person.

If only they knew it was a human life they were destroying. If they only knew, they wouldn’t – they couldn’t – continue to support abortion.

But they do know. And the abortions continue. Not because we live in a culture of death but because we live in a culture of me….

Pangs of conscience are, of course, a natural reaction to the taking of an innocent life. But while the Culture of Me can accept an unborn child being ripped from the womb, having hurt feelings about such actions is unacceptable.
