Is Abortion Passee?

Doug Groothuis, a professor at Denver Seminary, would like to make sure the abortion issue does not get put on the shelf. Yes, many evangelical Christians (left and right politically) have recognized the importance of other Kingdom issues, but when did human life become insignificant in the voting process and decision-making of millions of American Christians?

Here's just a piece of the article Dr. Groothuis wrote, but click HERE to read the entire article:

Since Roe v. Wade, approximately 50 million unborn humans have been killed through abortion. Stalin said, "One death is a tragedy. A million dead is a statistic." Too many are now Stalinists on abortion. The numbers mean nothing, apparently. The vast majority of these abortions were not done to save the life of the mother, a provision I take to be justified. Things have reached the point where bumper stickers say, "Don't like abortion, don't have one." It is simply a matter of private, subjective taste. But how about this: "Don't like slavery, don't own slaves"? Two human beings are involved in this matter, inescapably.

The title of his post was "Recovering from Fetus Fatigue."
