"You can't push your beliefs about abortion on someone else!"

The following is a comment on one of my YouTube Vlogs on the pro-life issue and my response.

This shows you how confused is our postmodernist generation of the 21st century. When someone says, “ I can’t push my beliefs on someone else,” they are actually stating a belief.

Not pushing your beliefs on someone is pushing your beliefs.

As Nietzsche (who was right sometimes) said: “Not to decide is to decide.”

Or as Cornelius Van Til argued, there is no such thing as a statement of belief that contains moral neutrality.


missmelpol: I don’t believe in having an abortion, but that is MY BELIEF. I can’t push my beliefs on someone else. I thought that was why we had a freedom of religion or speech and all that good stuff.

jcr4runner: The question is: “Why do you think abortion is wrong?” Is it because:

1. You don’t like abortion?

- or –

2. Abortion is murder?

If it is simple a question of likes and dislikes, then no you don’t have the right to enforce a mere opinion. But if abortion is murder, it is a moral law that transcends personal opinion. It can’t be “murder” for one person and “not murder” for another depending on how one feels at the moment.

There's a difference between having beliefs and trying to impose beliefs on other people.

Awesome Jay, you can pop those lie-blisters with your sharp needle of truth better than anyone I know!

Why do you think abortion is wrong?
1. You don't like abortion
2. you think abortion is murder

Neither of the above:

Sorry, Jay, I think abortion is wrong because it violates a primary tenet of the Natural Law.

It has nothing to do with my likes or dislikes.

Murder is a crime defined in the U. S. Criminal Code. You won't find abortion there. Abortion is homicide (killing a person); not murder.

When defending moral issues, clarity is critical.

Where I disagree is over the natural law. Natural law cannot distinguish between murder and homicide. That is not revealed in nature. Only written codified law can do that. Only biblical law does it correctly.

In some cases I agree with you though.

Murder is the premeditated killing of a human being. Homicide is the unintentional killing of a human being or killing in self-defense.

If a woman doesn't know she is killing a real human baby, either because of ignorance or deceit, then it could be argued it is homicide not murder.

But those abortion doctors who have the medical knowledge to understand that this is a human life are murderers.

And in either case, both murder and homicide are crimes.

So do you think that abortion should be prosecuted as homicide?

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.
