Time on the Military and Abortion

Al Mohler links to a short article in Time Magazine on the unavailability of abortion for women in the military unless they pay for it themselves outside a military hospital. This applies even in the cases of sexual assault.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) sponsored a bill to allow abortions for servicewomen in the cases of rape. It has passed the committee on a 16-10 vote.

This brings up yet again one of the ugly sides of the pro-abortion movement.

In this act, the worth of a child’s life is judged by his father’s actions. Because his father is a rapist, the child is denied the basic right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that our military is supposed to be defending.

It is inexcusable that in the twenty-first century we live in a land where someone can be killed simply because their father is a criminal.

These are the acts of lawless people from uncivilized cultures. These are the acts of criminals and terrorists. They are not the acts of freedom loving people.

It’s time for America to stop the charade that allows people to be killed for the sins of their father.
