I read this article a couple weeks ago. The author makes a good point on the effects of abortion on American culture. If we, as Americans really believe that abortion is a good thing (if you look at it from a “pro-choice” stance), then why are we surprised when people treat life with so little respect.

What’s life really worth?

One thought on “What’s life really worth?

    While I agree with the article in principle (abortion affects our entire society negatively, decreasing the value we place on life), I can’t say I agree it caused a shooting.

    From what we know of any killing, it is an individual’s decision to fulfill their own agenda.

    A baby is aborted to fulfill the mother’s agenda of avoiding the responsibility of a child.
    A teenager who takes a gun into school may kill their classmates to fulfill an agenda of revenge.
    An individual may shoot as many people as possible in a movie theatre simply to seek their agenda of being in the news the next day.

    Has abortion affected our cultural values in regards to life? Yes. Is it the direct cause of other cases of murder? Personal opinion: no.

    James 1:13-15 says;
    “When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

    I believe abortion, murder, theft, the Sandy Hook shooting; if directly caused by anything, are caused by sin. And the consequences of sin are death.
