Evolutionist: Abortion Can Improve Life and Prevent Harm
So much of our mythology, as George Orwell pointed out, relies on the creative use of language in order to fool ourselves into believing. Evolution is said to “find” biological solutions, as though the evolutionary process is an intelligent agent. The new law that forces consumers to make purchases is called the “affordable” care act. And abortion is said to help people. An article published this week by an abortion “doctor” provides yet more examples of such Orwellian newspeak. She wrote that “Abortion can improve life and prevent harm; pro-choice, to me, does not mean anti-life.” How is it that the killing of innocent babies serves to “improve life and prevent harm”? And if this is not “anti-life,” then what is? Of course it is anti-life, but it is precisely this sort of upside down, euphemistic terminology that allows us to continue in the myth.
