Abortion Outrage - a blog entry from Dr. Denny Burk

Please go to the below link and read about the Philadelphia "women's health issue doctor" (isn't that what we've been trained to call abortion...a women's health issue?) who will at best be spending the rest of his life in federal prison, and who at worst will be given the death penalty if found guilty of the charges against him.

The wisdom with which Dr. Denny Burk speaks about this tragedy and the issue of abortion truly defines the insanity surrounding the sinful act.

Please, come quickly Lord Jesus.

I haven't been able to get this abomination out of my mind since I read about it Wednesday and Dr. Burk brought up a point that was discussed at our apologetics class last night. Our topic was how to disarm the atheist worldview that life and the universe are devoid of purpose and meaning. If this worldview is adopted by society in whole, then the act of killing unwanted babies is acceptable whether in the womb or out.

In our discussion, we noted this idea is shocking and disturbing to most people. When you pick away at the underlying idea that all life is meaningless and we cease to exist when we die, then there really is no need to protect the unborn child nor the living child nor the adult. All people have no reason to continue to live, we might as well all kill ourselves and just get it over with.

Of course, this is preposterous thinking when extrapolated out to the final conclusion but very few people think through their worldview to this extent. As Christians, we must be able to reason out why all life is sacred because God gave it to us and talking rationally about issues like abortion is paramount to making a sound argument against the atheist and agnostic.
