Are you excited about the passing of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act? Man, I am! What a small breath of fresh air for those of us who feel that abortion equates to murder. But it does seem like a strange thing to call a bill- Pain-Capable- as though the feeling of pain is what makes an entity worth saving. I mean, I guess they did put a lot of time and resources into studying when exactly a human being is capable of feeling pain. Apparently, research shows it’s as early as 8-10 weeks of gestation. Sadly, that does not cover all unborn babies, and, besides, I feel it would be an error to say that human worth is established solely on our ability to feel pain. No, I feel love is more powerful than pain.
Therefore, I propose the Love-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (ha, I wonder if a bill with that name would even make it past the first draft!) This bill would prohibit the abortion of any human who is capable of being loved, which would include all humans (God loves us all and we should love each other), thereby ending abortion altogether. Of course, this would cause complete, total chaos to disrupt in less than 9 months of the bill’s passing. Imagine all the unwanted newborns being left at hospitals. Certainly, there would be no shortage of babies to fulfill the parental desires of the infertile couples across our nation. But what would we do when all those cribs and cradles were full and the infants began piling up in maternity wards? Would we step up to raise those children as our own? Would we open our home to one- or two or three or four- more? Prepare yourselves, you who pray for anti-abortion laws to be passed. Your granted requests will carry for you great responsibility. Are you prepared for that? Let’s pray to God you are because thousands of babies are about to be born- at your request.
