Count on it. A straight line from abortion to euthanasia and assisted suicide

Published on

I will forever recall the moment I was seated in my seventh-grade classroom, utterly astonished by the content of my teacher’s latest chalkboard inscription.

She had drawn a line extending from the term “abortion” to the term “euthanasia.” Her argument was that the termination of a pregnancy in the uterus would inevitably result in a lack of respect for the lives of the elderly.

This recollection resurfaced when I was perusing the pages of People magazine. The publication included what could be described as a promotional piece on euthanasia. (The magazine typically categorizes these stories under “human interest” and “health/dying.”)

The article detailed how a woman had assisted her mother in dying. The article presented a perspective that lacked any opposing viewpoint, thereby creating the impression that the termination of a mother’s life was a natural and acceptable course of action.

This is the consequence of legal abortion. In addition to the 64 million children who have been killed without recourse, there is now a risk that grandparents may also be subjected to the same fate.

The pervasiveness of the pro-choice perspective in popular culture serves as a further rationale for the continued relevance of the pro-life movement. From the corridors of state capitols to the halls of Congress, a number of individuals are engaged in the fight to protect the lives of those who are most vulnerable. Those in need of protection include preborn children, unsuspecting seniors, and individuals with disabilities.

Through education, we can emulate the actions of my teacher, who acted so long ago. It is our responsibility to demonstrate to the younger generation that all human beings are entitled to protection, from the earliest stages of life to the final moments.
