Semantics

A bloodthirsty terrorist and a money-grubbing abortionist; what’s the difference?  A terrorist kills innocent human beings in the name of an insane ideology.  The abortion industry kills innocent human beings in the name of an insane ideology. Terrorists kill their victims by torture, beheading, and worse.  In a typical partial-birth abortion the abortionist delivers a full-term living baby, feet first, face down.  The fully viable baby is completely removed from the mother’s body with the exception of the top couple inches of its head.  At that point the abortionist shoves forceps into the base of the baby’s skull to create an opening. A vacuum device is then inserted into the opening and the baby’s brain is suctioned from its skull.  The now dead child is pulled the remaining inch or two from its mother’s body and then unceremoniously disposed of.

Whether or not you equate abortion with terrorism, the end result is the same.  Innocent human beings die for no good reason.  Whether you call it murder, abortion, pregnancy termination, or even terrorism, it really doesn’t matter what clever words you use to describe what happened to the victims.  They’re still dead.  The pro-abortion side takes offense with  abortion being called murder.  They’ll tell you that it’s not murder unless the killing is done with malice. Once again, what you choose to call it makes no difference to its victims.

The terrorists of the world proudly post videos of their barbarity for anyone to see.  The abortion industry goes to great lengths to  keep a veil of secrecy over the brutal procedures they employ thousands of times a day.  They don’t want you to see a vacuum aspiration abortion, their most commonly used procedure.  After inserting a vacuum device into the uterus, the baby is suctioned from the mother’s body and fed through a rotating blade device that eviscerates the child’s body.  To complete the procedure the abortionist then reassembles the dead baby’s tiny body parts to insure that it was totally removed from its mother’s body.  Vacuum aspiration sounds so much better than suctioning a baby through an eviscerator to kill it; but the words used to describe it have no effect on the outcome.

Intentionally killing another human being is what it is no matter what you call it.  To be fair, semantics are employed by both sides of the abortion debate to present their side in the most favorable light.  The difference is that my side uses them to save lives and the abortion lobby uses them to make it easier to kill more babies.  Our words, and how we use them, have consequences and can play a part in changing the world, for better or worse.  The words I write and speak, with nothing other than intent to serve humanity and save children, I do so with no fear of consequences.  If only the other side could honestly say the same.

    Words fascinate me, and I find it amazing how both sides of an issue try to paint their position in the most favorable light with nothing but words. For years now, I’ve been trying to convince anyone who would listen that abortion is an abomination that has to stop. I’ve stated my case in countless words, and I will continue to do so until I no longer can. In the following piece, written in March of 2015, I tried to convey how words can describe similar events, with the intention of eliciting different reactions.
    In my humble opinion, the killing of an innocent human being through terrorism or abortion still results in the same outcome. An innocent human being is dead. It makes no difference to me or its victims what the procedure used to kill them is called. When a society devolves to the point that it kills over a million of its children every year, it is in deep trouble. We’re in deep trouble.
