Reader Steven Cornett on Cenk Uygur
- Suppose they Left You to be Murdered?
And yes, I want that title to stay. It's both provocative and an apt comparison to the suggestion made by one Cenk Uygur , who made a callous commentary bashing "Republicans" for having an unborn child testify to his being human, though preborn. He stated that, if the unborn could talk, they would oppose any effort to protect them from being murdered in the womb.
Would Mr. Uygur oppose efforts of the police and public protectors to keep murderers off the street that might want to kill him? I suspect not; if threatened he would demand every effort at capture and punishment of such a miscreant. Before someone says I threatened Mr. Uygur, however, realize that this is an analogy, and a fairly exact one to the thoughtless and cruel comment made by the presenter.
The child in the womb is a child, and just as much a person as a baby just out of the womb. So why is one given the protection of the state while open season is declared and protected on the other? That is the wordless, but still effective, testimony of the preborn child given in the state house of Ohio in support of Ohio House bill 125, which protects the unborn from the time their heart beats.
That child lives, and has a heart. Sadly, that's more than can be said for Cenk Uygur!
That reminds me of Dicken's The Christmas Carol, where the Second Ghost predicts Tiny Tim's death, throwing Scrooge's own words about the "surplus population" back at him. He then says the following, which arrogant folk who support abortion should ponder over:
'Man,' said the Ghost, 'if man you be in heart, not adamant, forbear that wicked cant until you have discovered What the surplus is, and Where it is. Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man's child. Oh God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust.'
