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.
