I saw this article on the Christian Post this morning. It is an interesting opinion piece that kind of hits home on the nature of God within all of us. I am a prisoner to my conscience as it never left no matter how much I buried it. Here are a few excerpts from the article:
At a meeting of fellow abortionists, a physician and a nurse described a survey of fifteen of the physician’s present and former staff. You might think that abortion didn’t trouble them, but you’d be wrong. Some of the staff reported that they refused to look at the aborted fetus….Others looked but felt “shock, dismay, amazement, disgust, fear, and sadness.” Two thought that abortion “must eventually damage the physician psychologically.” One found herself becoming increasingly resentful about the casual attitudes of some patients, even though she approved of abortion herself. Two of the staff described dreams about vomiting up fetuses or about protecting other people from looking at them.
Yes, even these hardened people showed the signs of buried conscience.
In another story, Budziszewski tells about the “abortion pill,” RU-486. It was once expected that RU-486 would be an easy way to have an abortion because swallowing a pill is simpler than undergoing a surgical procedure. The facts are much different: RU-486 can cause severe bleeding, cramping, and nausea. The expulsion of the embryo may take several days, and the woman may be able to recognize the remains of her child in the toilet or collection bucket.
But get this: Pro-abortion researchers in clinical trials of RU-486 argued that for some women, these awful burdens are just what makes RU-486 attractive. These women welcome the increased suffering because they regard it as a price they ought to pay, a kind of atonement for having an abortion — interesting. Now why would they be trying to atone if they didn’t know that abortion is wrong?
