Marxism and Abortion

By Editorial Staff
Published November 1, 1988

A recent article in The Tribune, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of Australia, expounded upon the Marxist view of abortion, adding new understanding to the international debate over the rights of the unborn.

“Human Life and Fetal Images,” an essay by Rebecca Albury, appeared in the Australian publication on August 10 of this year. Albury made the following statements about the teachings of Karl Marx and their relationship to the unborn:

Dr. John Whitehall, who reported these statements to the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade in his article “Marx and the Unborn Baby,” (September 15, 1988), commented on Albury’s conclusions by saying, “The inhumanity of communism resides in this arbitrary assessment of human life, which is based on the Marxist valuation of certain social relationships. On this basis, millions have been told ‘goodbye’ – from the purges of Russia, to the genocide in Cambodia, to the killings in the Philippines, and now to the unborn baby.”

I was wondering about Liberation Theology. This theology appears to embrace Marxist theory. Would Marxist theory in every instance support the death of the unborn? I read the Marx Engels reader and I didn’t see any reference to killing children. But, I am prone to seeing images etc and when I opened the reader I ‘saw’ what appeared to be vampire bats fly out. That was a bad sign (I thought). I am a bit confused; because I know Marxists and they are passionate activists when my Christian friends seem to sit on their hands – but, mention abortion, and the Communist seems to go into mindless robot speak. Anyway – I was wondering if you can be a Marxist (without supporting the death of the unborn) and a Christian.

We studied this in school. Marxism and Christianity are two entirely different things. They share different economic views, and hold entirely different views of the supernatural. According to Marx, there is absolutely no supernatural. You are on this earth, and that’s all there is to it. We evolved and have no spiritual side: we are matter and that is it. If you are a Christian, then you believe that God created man and made man in His image. You believe that we have a spiritual side, and are sinful, but we can come to God through Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins. So no, you can’t be both Marxist and Christian. They are too different.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

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.
