Denying Reality

To be pro-choice is to be in profound denial about the fundamental, biological reality of human reproduction and the beautiful, glorious role that women play in that process. It is to celebrate autonomy, to celebrate the division of human from human, human from creation, and human from God. It is to celebrate the fallenness of creation, the brokenness of human nature, the separation of people from each other. In this way, to be pro-choice is to celebrate the natural effects of sin. It is to deny the solidarity we all share with our fellow human beings. If you do not love the child growing within you enough to at least let her survive, how can you love the poor and oppressed whom you have no connection to?
