In a July 25 post to Erick Erickson's blog RedState, regular contributor Repair_Man_Jack tied the recent tragic bombing in Norway to the pro-choice movement and end-of-life issues. From the post:
A society that cheapens the value of life can reasonably expect to produce Nietzschean Supermen like Breivik with increasing frequency as that culture's fundamental apostasy rages unchecked.
Thus, I am Pro-Life. This extends far beyond my desire to eliminate both abortion and state-encouraged euthanasia as much as possible. Cheapening the fundamental value of life cheapens all of us. It makes our children's futures less hopeful. Human life, even the lives of other human beings that I forget to love as brothers, is a lot more important than I, or anyone else will ever be as solipsistic individuals. When a society forgets this, many lives will soon become forfeit.
We live in a world where we are perfectly happy to abort millions of children and then DEMAND to know WHY Anders Behring Breivik became the human sarcoma that he truly is. We live in a world where people praise Jack Kevorkian as some sort of efficiency expert, but we have outraged news stories when someone in Seattle shoots his fellow man for insulting the paint job on his car. I mean it's rough sanding down the frame and applying a new coat of primer. Give the guy an efficiency ribbon. Al Gore decries our global overpopulation anyway.
