I got a comment on the blog post “Do Morals Matter” , in which Invisible Mikey talked about lots of abortion situations and said,”Acting ethically to solve problems isn’t always so simple, is it?” It seems like everybody thinks that if the right thing is hard, it gives them the right to do wrong. I like this next quote from Mark Twain-
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
How does a hard situation give you the right to murder a baby? Doing right has never been simple. Invisible Mikey talks about how if you fix poverty there will be less abortions. So, apparently there’s a clause that says if you are poor it gives you the right to murder? And if you don’t feel like working, everyone else can support you on welfare? Everybody thinks that if you hit something hard in life, you should just give to it. Let me make a comparison- If you are driving down the road and your car hits a bump, you don’t let go of the wheel and crash; you grip the wheel and keep on steering the car. We, as people, are being given the choice to not do the right thing, and are being told to do the wrong thing. Every time somebody shoots people they get off the hook by claiming that they have mental problems. For crying out loud! They obviously have mental problems. They need to face the consequences of their actions. Invisible Mikey also said that abortion doesn’t equal murder. Apparently, it is more complicated than that. Do you want to know why it’s so complicated? Because they’re trying to explain that it’s perfectly okay to kill babies. That’s why it’s complicated. It doesn’t have a lot to do with poverty; it has a lot to do with our human condition of sin and selfishness. Invisible Mikey also says that we should be handing out free contraceptive devices. I have a better solution- Don’t have sex before marriage. Doing the right thing is never wrong!
