If asked what one word we would choose to describe contemporary life, we could undoubtedly come up with quite a few. All accurate and appropriate. How about this for one: Confusion. When arguing with those on the opposite side of an issue, we may find ourselves wondering about their beliefs. Are they being dishonest, are they missing some facts or are they simply confused?
Let’s be honest, not everyone is always honest. That’s kind of difficult to do when we don’t even know what truth is anymore. Let’s say we do have a good grasp on truth but not all the facts. That can certainly sway an opinion in a direction it shouldn’t go.
And then there is the thinking process itself. For many, critical thinking is a foreign concept. With neither the skill set, nor often even the inclination, some will settle for the lowest common denominator. Whatever the going sentiment is among their peers, that’s what they “believe.” Their belief involves no actual examination or effort.
We might argue this is true when it comes to the idea of abortion. There is no question many have ulterior motives, selfish desires, that prevent an honest appraisal of the practice. Then there are conflicting laws that send contradictory signals. This can lead to some pretty serious confusion.The Women's Health story highlighted a study published in the Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health that found 43 percent of deaths of pregnant women over eight years in Washington, D.C. were homicides.

Abortion Mindset Leads to Murder
Abortion is legal. We have ended the lives of innocent, unborn children to the tune of over 60 million and counting since Roe v. Wade. So, apparently (according to some) it shouldn’t be a big deal when the death of an unborn occurs. Except, except, that is not always the case. There are times (although not always) when killing an unborn child can bring a charge of manslaughter or murder.
Are we confused yet?
Here is some commentary on a recent such case.
“Ally was pregnant with the child of the accused killer, a fellow undergraduate at Mississippi. He reportedly pressured her to have an abortion. She refused. So it appears he killed her and their prenatal child, in a reprehensible double murder…
“Despite the high-profile nature of such cases, our culture is still not fully aware of the danger in which pregnant women find themselves…
“Indeed, the double murder that killed Ally and her prenatal child is tragically typical example of how abortion rights have so grossly affected our culture…
“If a woman like Ally is strong enough to resist a male partner’s demand that she have an abortion, she puts herself at serious risk—not just for getting beat-up, but for being murdered. That’s right, murdered. The double murder that killed Ally is not some kind of outlier….

Let that sink in.
