Iceland’s Genocide of Babies With Down Syndrome

If you want to know what evil looks like, look to Iceland. In a chilling story, CBS reports that through abortion Iceland has virtually erased children with Down syndrome from their society. According to CBS, “100% of pregnant women whose prenatal tests come back positive for Down syndrome have decided to end their pregnancies.” While fairly impartial, the CBS news story is heartbreaking and infuriating to watch. While watching, I kept waiting for Joseph Goebbels to stride into frame and make an argument for the extermination of babies with Down syndrome. Instead, cheery, non-threatening, seemingly-friendly Icelanders defended the practice.

The Barbarity of Killing Infants

Contemporary Western Society has proven that it is willing to sacrifice babies on the altars of convenience, fiscal pragmatism, and sexual freedom. Gussied up with the name of “abortion” and defended as a woman’s rights issue, Western governments have sanctioned the murder of babies for decades. By God’s grace, His people have courageously fought back, though, defending the oppressed and “the least of these.” Throughout the battle, the protectors of babies who have invoked the name of Peter Singer as a warning have been accused of using a “slippery slope” argument. Well, the murder of Charlie Gard by the hands of the State demonstrate that Western culture may very well be nearing the bottom of that slippery slope.

Abortion IS Murder

Last night while at a party, I had the privilege of listening to a friend from church talk very briefly about her labors on the Hill to protect the lives of the unborn. Our church is blessed to have several people who are actively involved in combating our society’s horrific holocaust of babies. One young lady is the director of a crisis pregnancy center that offers free medical care to poor mothers and undocumented immigrant mothers. One would think that liberal-leaning professing Christians would applaud her work to care for mothers who are often alone and who are struggling emotionally, materially, and spiritually. But, no, progressive Christians offer some of the sharpest rebukes and attacks on her labors.

Abortionist – “The heads that get stuck that we can’t get out.”

Did you know that the baby-murdering industry (colloquially called “abortion”) has an annual trade show? If you’re like me, and you weren’t aware of that, then, like me, you’re probably also not surprised that they do. You’re also probably not surprised that the baby-murdering industry tries to keep it a secret. From their perspective, they do so for good reason.

Even while facing persecution for seeking to save the lives of babies, David Daleiden and his brave, honorable laborers at The Center for Medical Progress went undercover at the National Abortion Federation’s trade show this past April. The preview to the upcoming videos they’ve produced needs very little comment. I will say three things, though.

Pro-Life Group Condemns Christian School for Punishing Pregnant Teen

Christians need to stop apologizing for the Biblical doctrine of sin. Of course, and sadly, many professing followers of King Jesus don’t really hold to a doctrine of sin as defined by God in the Bible. For them, instead of a violation of God’s holy and unchanging law, sin is a moving target that shifts and becomes redefined based on the opinions and/or feelings of those around them. Many professing Christians appear to be more concerned about appeasing unbelievers than they are in having any sort of consistency in reference to sin. This problem frequently raises its ugly head, but a current situation involving a pregnant teenager who was punished by her Christian school is the most current example causing professing Christians to apologize for other Christians faithfully adhering to the Biblical doctrine of sin (the most current example at the time of this writing, at least).

I freely and happily admit that I have cribbed this idea from many other writers and bloggers. So be it. A good idea is a good idea, right? There is so much content vying for our attention on the internet, it’s often hard to find the diamond in the rough, so to speak. Although, there are plenty of diamonds hidden throughout the interwebs. That fact means that aggregate sites are useful, and websites and blogs that devote articles and posts to serving as an aggregate for interesting and/or useful content are likewise useful. While I have next to zero desire for this blog to become an aggregate site, or even provide daily posts that offer some help to my friends and readers uncovering some diamonds that they may have missed, a weekly post seems fun for me and possibly profitable for others.

Below, are several of the more interesting articles and blog posts that I read over the last week. Enjoy.
