The Facebook post at right appeared on my news feed this morning and I was struck by the irony of the words and society's failure to see the much larger issue at hand.
What if we were to substitute these images with pictures of aborted babies? Will our moral compass allow us to say that unwanted pregnancies are the "product of careless humans?" Aren't those babies being "thrown away like trash?"
Like these kittens, abortion is not an "isolated incident or uncommon drama." Each year, in the United States alone, more than 1.2 million babies are aborted. Since abortion was legalized in 1973, more than 50 million children have been terminated because "careless humans." Right here in Tennessee, in an average year, 16,000-18,000 babies are aborted. Yet, where is the outrage?
Where is our sense of priority?
