The "Grace" of Abortion

Now comes Ms. Valerie Tarico, a professional atheist and "former fundamentalist," to assure prospective mothers that abortion (also known as infanticide) is not merely "a necessary evil," but is actually "a gift, a grace, a mercy, a cause for gratitude, a new lease on life."  (We refer to Ms. Tarico as a "professional atheist" because promoting disbelief and attacking Christianity are how she makes her living.) Not content to defend abortion on practical grounds (she is a member of the Board of Advocates of Planned Parenthood), she is using her status as a self-described "Christian atheist" to present the procedure as a positive good.

Writing in The Huffington Post, this dreadful harpie even takes former President Bill Clinton to task for his famous statement that abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare." The word "rare," which President Clinton always emphasized, seems to offend Ms. Tarico, who writes: "An abortion should be exactly as safe, legal and rare as a surgery to remove swollen tonsils or an infected appendix. If we think about abortion like we think about other medical services, then the attitude is one not of shame or ambivalence but of gratitude."

 "safe, legal, rare"
Really, Ms. Tarico?  "Gratitude" to whom, exactly?  The abortionist, who is paid, and paid well, for ending the lives of unborn or partly-born children?  The Supreme Court, which legalized the practice?  Surely you don't mean gratitude to God; you don't believe in Him.  And exactly what do you mean when you refer to abortion as "a gift" and "a grace?" A gift from whom, to whom? From the unwilling mother to her slaughtered child?  From a liberal government to its constituents?  You can't mean a "gift" from God, although you piously use religious language, which you certainly don't mean, to present your case.  As a "former fundamentalist," you know precisely what the word "grace" connotes to Christian people.  It's as if she's wandering the campus of the nearest Christian college, handing out flyers for the local abortion clinic.

And they say that Christians are hypocrites! This treacherous bawd is a bigger liar than Ananias and Sapphira.

In response to those who say that abortion is immoral, Ms. Tarico replies, "For me, bringing a child into the world under bad circumstances is immoral. It violates my moral and spiritual values.  Whose god decides?"

Apparently, you bloody-handed shrew, your own "god" decides: the one you see when you look in the mirror.  I'd send my daughter to the lowest crustacean in the sea for moral or ethical advice before I'd send her to you.

As for God, you should think back on your time as a "fundamentalist," if that time ever existed, and recall a few of the things that He said.  Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts (Proverbs 21:2). And you might remember that one of the seven things that are an "abomination" to God are hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16-19).  If there is any blood more innocent than that of the unborn children you are so zealous to kill, I don't know where it would be found.

But enough of this self-righteous harridan. Just for some relief, and some clear thinking, let's hear, once again, from Canada's Lia Mills, who, at the age of twelve, electrified millions on YouTube with the following speech:


Be careful, Ms. Tarico.  Your enthusiasm for abortion may be a bit outdated.  There's a new generation of women coming along that are going to make you look like the intellectual slattern that you truly are.

  1. Ms. Tarico: another (classic) case of calling evil good, and good evil. (Isaiah 5:20).

    Isaiah 5:21 applies to her as well: Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
