Abortion is murder

When a plane is aborted on takeoff, it is called a delay. When you abort a fetus, it should be called murder. Yes, I said it. Sorry it is not politically correct. Webster’s dictionary defines murder as, “to kill or slaughter barbarously.” Since killing a preborn child usually involves burning, smothering, dismembering and crushing, that description sounds about right.

There are so many fringe issues when the subject is abortion. It seems to me that a lot of people focus on all those side issues that can be morally supported. Thus, suppressing their guilt.

Ultimately, the result is an unborn person that ends up dead. Thankfully, with God’s forgiveness in the here and now, you can look forward to the ecstasy of reuniting with your unborn loved ones in eternity. It is as simple as that.
