Why Is The Professional Left Enamoured With Abortion?

Written by Fr Bill Peckman

Why is the professional left enamored with abortion? Long gone is the Clintonian “safe, rare, and legal” mantra once held. It is replaced with a militant advocacy around the world.

First, the professional left is enamored with eugenics. Born of fear or elitism, eugenics seeks to control population growth so as to create a perfect humanity. It might take the extreme forms of genocide as seen in Nazi Germany, Communist Russia and China, or in the widespread use of abortion as birth control. It might be seen in the sustaining of permanent underclasses, which once controlled, can be shrunk to elimination. This is why abortion rates among the poor and minorities are so high.

Second, the professional left is enamored with concept of the state as God. Certainly this is tenet of marxism/communism. Many socialist regimes disdain religion. If the state is God, then those who control the state are God. As a god, they dispense rights, have omnipotent control over every aspect of life, and can cull the herd in order to lead. Abortion is not just a tool, but it is a primary tool, of killing the unwanted who they feel will belong to potentially burdensome populations. Without an outside God, the state can eliminate by fiat and convince the population they are doing it for the good of society.

Third, the professional left is enamored with the concept of the state as the parent. The more decisions that can be ripped away from a parent who, like God, might not support the agenda or support the narrative, the more control over every aspect of life can be garnered. If even the most basic right, that to life, can be erradicated, then all other rights can be controlled and eliminated. If the state can replace God, the churches, and parents with the state, there is nothing to stop the full implementation of the eugenic agenda.

Abortion is the most nefarious symptom of the disease, but the disease is larger and it must be the entirety we fight.



At the annual Vigil for Life rally in the U.S.A., at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Cardinal Dolan tells the marchers: “Pray against ‘powers of darkness’!”

(We join in prayer with our American friends walking in the March for Life today.)

And Ed Condon on the Catholic Herald  asks: “What’s really behind the push for ‘buffer zones’?”  (“The abortion lobby is running scared. No wonder it’s targeting pro-lifers.”)

    Nicely said, Fr Bill! You gave me some good ammunition for the aggressive left.

    Add the transgender debate now…..

    Might have been a good idea to say who The Professional Left actually are.
    Socialist politicians? Marxist university professors?

    If all lives matter, why does God kill so many people with earthquakes, floods, and epidemic disease? Why are millions of babies stillborn? Maybe some lives matter more than others.

    Population control has only one real purpose : to ensure the longevity of wealth disparity, so that these can continue to be wealthier than those due to a continuing abundance of resources that these can control to the detriment of those.

    The improvement of our environment simply does not require population reduction ; but the perpetuation of the wealthy classes does.

    So, toad, you’re still offering these platitudes as if they were meaningful ?

    Earthquakes, floods, and epidemic diseases kill people — but what, are you still trying to blame God for our Condition of Mortality ? Crikey, welcome back to your habitual failure to understand either Free Will or Original Sin.

    It is a truism of Philosophy that “everything that has a beginning has an end”. Philosophy (nor Theology) does not concern itself with impossible speculations about non-existent conditions — if pigs had wings, we could all shoot pork chops out of the sky, and if God had made the Cosmos differently, we’d all be living in cloud cuckoo land.

    President Donald Trump addressed the massive ‘March for Life’ that took place in Washington yesterday! Trump, the most pro-life US President ever, is much maligned by the “Professional Left”. The inspiring words of his speech make it glaringly obvious why this is so, and why they hate him so much.

    “You come from many backgrounds, many places, but you all come for one beautiful cause: to build a society where life is celebrated, protected and cherished,” he said. “The March for Life is a movement born out of love.”

    “You love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God,” the president added. “Because of you, tens of thousands of Americans have been born and reached their full God-given potential. Because of you.”

    The pro-abortion “Professional Left” (of varying stripes) do not “love every child”; they only love themselves and their selfish ambitions. They do not believe life is “sacred” or (being atheists) that every child is “a precious gift from God”.

    Kathleen: Trump seems to be the only president (since he’s never been a politician till he became president) to really speak out without fear about life and the unborn. I think because he came unfiltered, he came without monetary disparity, and he came after listening to people all his life. And now he can speak! And hope that people are listening to his words and not to preconceived personality problems.

    Considering the alternative, I’m okay with Trump, but I don’t believe a flipping word that comes out of his flipping mouth. No way. Let him enjoy the White House. He will never be in mine.

    No, Jabba – I don’t think God is responsible for earthquakes, etc. He could not be. That would indicate He was vindictive and mad. I think theses ”acts of God” are just the price we pay for life on a very unstable planet. Same as you do. Might be wrong, of course.

    I am pleased to notice an increasing number of celebrities boldly announcing their pro-life views on the MSM. This morning someone pointed me to this surprising article! (Not too sure about the rainbow* colours surrounding the baby, but the pro-life message on her outfit is clear.)

    The “celebrity” in this case, Joy Villa (who, admittedly, I had never heard of before), is also an unabashed supporter of pro-life President Trump!

    * Rainbows – such beautiful natural phenomena – have now forever been fouled in our minds, thanks to their connotation with the LGBT lobby 🙁.

    No, they haven’t.
