Straight from the campus of my alma mater, the University of Tennessee, comes one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen. Video has emerged from Students for Life of a college student declaring his indifference to the murder of children up to the age of two. You heard that right. He is just fine with infanticide, and even though there is not good reason for that position, how he got to his conclusion is pathetic.
When you think of the insanity of this student’s position, and try to imagine his thought process, it makes you wonder if ‘higher education’ is benefiting our young people at all. His reasoning for allowing the murder of two-year-olds is based on the fact that he can’t communicate with the babies. Seriously. His whole argument is premised around the idea that if a baby can’t tell you it wants to live, then it probably doesn’t care if it dies, and since the child doesn’t care, neither should we.
This is the most disgusting viewpoint I have ever encountered, and it shows exactly where many people are at morally these days. Any sane person will tell you that killing a child is murder, but notice how the left consistently shifts the goalposts. This is because they love death. In almost every area of our society, leftists are trying to create more death. The choose death over life, because they don’t value life. There are so many areas in which progressives promote death: abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, promiscuous sexual lifestyles, massive drug use and prescriptions…they love lifestyles and actions that devalue humanity.
The student, who is unidentified, likens the two-year-old to a nearby tree:
“The fact of the matter is without communication, we have no way of knowing if you are sentient or not. It’s no different than this tree. It’s alive, but is it sentient? I don’t know. I cannot communicate with it. Generally speaking, the child still has the inability to communicate, and until we determine that as such, at what point does sentience become an issue, we can’t really debate whether or not that is the situation or not.”
And there you have it folks! This is the continuation of liberal thinking, and it won’t stop here. Ironically, the fact is that numerous two-year-olds actually communicate better than this guy (and I would know, being the father of two young girls). If left unchecked, this type of thinking will not be satisfied until there is government sanctioned and administered population control. These people want government, which has replaced God in their lives, to be the ultimate decider of who lives and dies. Value is given by the experts in science and academia, and morality becomes irrelevant.
We must fight this thinking whenever and wherever we see it. They are now openly calling for the murder of children. How long until they start calling for the deaths of all the bigoted, homophobic Christians, or backwards, politically-involved conservatives? I hate to see this type of demonic thinking creeping around the campus of my beloved Volunteers. Every rational person who has a sliver of morality left in them must stand against this evil. Fortunately, there are still some of us around who believe in protecting the most vulnerable in our society. We speak on behalf of those who can’t speak for themselves. We view it as our moral obligation, unlike this student, who sees no value in God’s highest creation.
Let’s stop calling these monsters pro-choice. They are pro-death.
