Abortion and Transparency

This is a most unusual post for this blog. Since the vast majority who read this blog agree with me, I don’t know if it makes sense to post it, so feel free to skip it.

The word transparent may not mean what some might have first thought. I am pro-life, and if you disagree with that, I’m not forcing you to read this. I’m just ruminating about something I was thinking about today.

I was thinking today about something where somehow my mind went to the question of: What if people’s bodies were transparent and you could see through to a baby/fetus inside of a woman? I wonder if that would sway anyone who is undecided on the issue. If some who insist on having an abortion were had a mirror above the table (extremely cruelly I admit), would that make them less likely to have one? Again, I realize that’s an awful thought, but I believe that abortion is an awful, horrific thing, to be transparent myself. I realize that some women feel, at the time, that they need to have an abortion and seeing it performed would make it even more traumatic.

I know I’m not the first person to think of this, but I hadn’t seen it mentioned before. I only found one item when searching for it online.

In this age when people don’t want to put animals in cages to grow them and use them for food, want organic food, insist on fair trade that isn’t usually fair, won’t eat any animal products for moral reasons, etc., it’s amazing how the majority opinion on aborting a human fetus hasn’t really changed very much. There are various freedoms that are out of whack too. People can kill a baby in a womb, but can’t buy raw milk in the U.S., or not very easily. (I’m not saying I think it’s fine to put animals in tiny cages all their lives.)

Remember, if you disagree with me, nobody forced you to read this post. I’m not shoving my opinion down anyone’s throat, I’m just writing about something I thought of today. I’m wondering if the status of a fetus will be raised to that of many animals at some point in my lifetime. I will present Scripture, which I’m confident is inspired by God, but you don’t have to read it.

Least of all, I am in no way commenting on those who have had abortions and feel remorse. That’s past. Many women just don’t realize what’s really going on at that time. If people believe Jesus came to die to forgive our wrongdoings and just plain depraved nature, and rose again to make us innocent, God will actually live with us and help us to get to know him, which is an amazing thing. For those who don’t believe that, it’s your choice, and it’s not my job to condemn anyone. I hope people can be tolerant and respectful of my opinions.

The most amazing verse in the Bible to me lately is John 17:3:

This is eternal life: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent.
John 17:3

A righteous person cares even about the life of his animals,
but the compassion of wicked people is nothing but cruelty.
Proverbs 12:10

Defend weak people and orphans.
Psalm 82:3
