It’s not just a “Choice” but now “Selective reduction”
A truly ghastly 40-second ad with the title “The Chosen” supporting Planned Parenthood is currently circulating on the internet. The ad, which is over three years old, shows a beautiful baby. With a lullaby tune playing in the background captions appear stating, “She deserves to be…loved. She deserves to be…wanted. She deserves to be…a choice.” But that begs the rhetorical question: “Who is to make that choice?”
This idea of “choice” was offered to a childhood friend and his wife a number of years ago. However, it wasn’t called a choice but rather “selective reduction.” After viewing this ad, he wrote: “My son found out he was going to have triplets. The doctor asked if my son and his wife would like to do a selective reduction? Un be freaking believable.
“David and Karen have two beautiful baby boys and a beautiful little girl. It’s not easy but they’re loving it with lots of help from grandparents and family. I was shocked that the doctor is expected to ask parents of multiple births if they would like to have a selective reduction.” –Fred C.
Another friend’s son and his wife were offered the same “choice”. Here is what she had to say:
“This is exactly what happened to my oldest son who has the triplets. Needless to say, he was having none of that!
“Now I look at those 3 beautiful kids (grandchildren) and shake my head. Which one would they have been willing to destroy?
“We are reaching the point where I fear God may finally become so disgusted, He’ll turn His face from us. We’re becoming like the Israelites who were sacrificing their children to Moloch – and that didn’t turn out so well for them!” – Jackie M
By the way, these were two different doctors from different states.
Echoing Jackie M’s biblical reference to Moloch a former college classmate offered this thought: “Remember Israel’s punishment for sacrificing her 1st born children by the thousands, through the fire, on the altar of Molech.
“The U.S. will also be punished for sacrificing its children by the millions on the altar of the right to choose.” -Bill E
Finally, a friend and former judge emailed me this: “John, we’re making the Roman Empire in the last stages look good.” – Robert D
Unfortunately, I fear my judge friend is right on the mark.
Like those above, my wife and I are appalled and disgusted at the obviously callous indifference to the sanctity of life as evidenced by this despicable ad. Everyone should be, but unfortunately, that is not the case – and like Israel, our nation may one day pay a terrible price.
