The closing arguments are being made in the grisly murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The case leads us to wonder, how has â€œreproductive careâ€ come to this â€“ the murder of newborn infants by snipping their spinal cords?
Perhaps the root cause can be found in Americaâ€™s glorification of sex. Not sex within marriage, but promiscuity, hook-ups, pornography, and lust. The culture of licentiousness has people convinced that sex is all about pleasure and should be â€œconsequence-freeâ€. Society is forgetting about the selfless love of spouses. Instead, lust leads to the objectification of oneâ€™s sexual â€œpartnerâ€.
Once the door has opened to allow the objectification of human persons and stripping of their dignity, why stop there?
