The Nazis were so very civilized. This may be why their evil is so utterly terrifying. There’s nothing quite as chilling as seeing a seemingly ordinary man working at a desk, devising bureaucratic plans to send millions to their deaths. One feels a unique kind of horror when witnessing a great evil being treated as ordinary—even boring—as everyone nods and smiles in response.
Which brings me to the video below.
Amelia Bonow is a co-founder of the “Shout Your Abortion” social media campaign to put an end to the stigma associated with abortion. The tagline on their website reads, “Abortion is normal. Our stories are ours to tell. This is not a debate.” They say, “Abortion helps people live their best lives. We are the proof. And we’re only going to get louder.”
In the video below from the “Kids Meet” series,* kids meet “someone who’s had an abortion.” It’s Amelia Bonow. And she wants these kids to know that abortion is normal and it helps people live their best lives.
What chance do kids have of resisting indoctrination into a culture’s nodding, smiling, everyday evil? None at all, if they’re not taught to refute it. If you can bear it, watch the video, and then ask yourself how your kids would have fared in this situation. Are they ready to respond to these pro-abortion arguments? Are they prepared to resist the pull to blend in with the crowd?
But of course, before you can help your kids understand the reasoning behind the pro-life position, you first have to understand it yourself. When you’re ready to get started, go here.
