One of the perennial favorites is that every abortion is an act of desperation and only a churl would therefore oppose abortion. Except, of course, that abortion is often treated as a convenient form of birth control for such trivial reasons as “not wanting my holiday to be spoilt“. Also, it’s done because mummy and daddy don’t happen to like the sex of the child (and guess which sex is the big loser, O Feminist Abortion Zealot).
In the not-too-distant future, we Boomers will find ourselves being rubbed out by the next generation whom we have instructed so well in the ethic, “If people are inconvenient and can’t fight back, just kill ’em.” It won’t be right, of course. But it will be fitting, as the consequences of grave sin typically are since the punishment for sin is usually the sin itself.
