"Life a Beautiful Choice? It's Not So Beautiful for an Unwanted Child."

“Life a ‘beautiful choice?’ It’s not so beautiful for an unwanted child.” Believe it or not, a pastor made this comment. I had to ask myself, “Why isn’t an unwanted child’s life beautiful?” The answer is, because he’s unwanted. But this alone doesn’t make anyone’s life miserable. There’s more to it than this. What makes an unwanted child’s life miserable? Other people do. Unwanted children are unhappy because of the way they’re treated.

This pastor’s startling admission amounts to this: “If we let this child live, I’m going to treat him so badly, I’ll make life so miserable for him, he’ll wish he was dead.” It’s an admission he would rather kill a child than do what is necessary to give him a meaningful life. Is this a good argument for abortion? Do you see what kind of people we’re becoming?
