The Word Games of Pro-Choice

A brilliant piece by Andrew McCarthy describing how we got from manipulation of language to the horror of Kermit Gosnell's abortuary.

Dehumanizing Word Games by Andrew C. McCarthy

Gosnell is a 72-year-old abortionist. The formal charges against him — the murders of a woman and seven babies — are but drops in a sea of carnage. Mounting evidence reveals him to be a mass murderer of epic scale and Mengele methods. It also spotlights the evil — the apparently unspeakable evil — of legalized abortion in all its coarsening gore. Plainly, the vaunted journalists of our debased mainstream have determined that there must be no meaningful coverage. No time in the 24/7 cycle to notice the inexorable path from dehumanizing the vulnerable through word games to mass-murdering them with casual sadism.
This trial is going to do more to expose the logic of the pro-choice position than anything else pro-lifers can think up. It will force people, who have previously avoided the reality of abortion, to see its grisly face. That "fetus" is actually a baby; that "clump of cells" actually is alive; that "product of conception" feels pain when its life is terminated.

Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. John 8:32
