Right to Life Regional Message Board
Yeah, it's concerning, a church friend of mine and I were talking about this today and he was wondering if the glyphosate or other chemical spraying was causing it. But as far as I know, spraying is province-wide and it's odd that it is only on the Acadian peninsula.
Got my vaccine booked! I have 2 chronic conditions so I'm able to sneak in early, and while I hope I'm not pushing anyone else out, I will gladly get it now that I can. I trusted my doctors with my life when they were operating on my heart 7 years ago, I will trust them now.
I will also comment briefly on the morality of the fetal cell issue. Most vaccines themselves contain no fetal tissue, but the tissue was used during the development of these vaccines, or later on to test many of these vaccines. However, these were cells taken in the 70s and 80s and that are now grown in labs from these original cells. Were those abortions immoral tragedies? Yes, absolutely. But, like a murder victim being used as an organ donor, good can come from moral evil. I want to say that if abortion was required to continue the practices we have now I would probably find it harder to pursue these vaccines on moral grounds. However, if this tragedy is not repeated, and can be roundly condemned but still used, like the unethical experiments in WW2 that have since been used in medicine, then I can sleep at night soundly knowing that at least some good came out of the ending of this poor persons life.
Romans 8:28 says "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." This does not mean the events themselves are good, but rather they work together for good. I believe this is one of those cases, as the tragedy is passed and not repeated, and we are not furthering any immorality by partaking in these vaccines.
I long for the day when lab-grown cells can replace the cells used now, but until then, I think it is morally acceptable to use what we have now.
Also, if you are still hesitant, please see this article:
And this sheet:
to find covid vaccines that are morally clear in your eyes. As time goes on and choice widens I believe this objection will become less relevant in decisions relating to vaccinating vs. not vaccinating.
PS: I am scheduled to receive the Pfizer vaccine if you are curious.
I've a hypothetical on pro-life goals that I'm interested in hearing some opinions on, more or less what the fundamental principle behind advocacy is or ought to be (or just what your opinion is on it.)
So, the hypothetical:
The pro-life movement is going to have success in one area, and because you have a arbitrarily limited magic wand, you can choose one and only one.
Option 1: Cultural victory. Abortion comes to be viewed as broadly immoral and far less people choose to have one as a result. However, due to contrived circumstances, say a packed SCOTUS, it remains and will remain fully legal for elective reasons, and abortions are still carried out, just at lower rates as less people are seeking them.
Option 2: Legal victory. Roe/Casey are either overturned or struck down by Constitutional amendment without any significant chance of being counter-overturned. However, a black market in illegal abortions springs up, and proves difficult to effectively combat.
Now the catch: in the first scenario, the abortion rate is down to 25 per thousand live births. In the second, the illegal abortion rate is estimated at 50 per thousand. (These numbers are arbitrary and probably unrealistic, but this is a thought experiment, not an accurate situation, trolley-problem style)
Which option do you choose? How much does the ratio matter? Would it be different if it were 1.25:1 advantage for Option 1? 4:1? Is the fundamental goal the absolute reduction of abortion rates, even without legal protections, or those legal protections, even if criminal abortions remain?
Option 1. The focus of any pro-life group should be on making abortion unthinkable, not just illegal. Laws against abortion do lower abortion rates, but so does targeting the reasons that women seek abortions. A world where the prevailing culture discourages women from seeking abortion and gives them the assistance they need to care for their babies sounds like a pretty great world, even if abortion remains legal.
Interesting, thanks for responding. I am a bit surprised to see things lean so much towards #1, but I think they're both wholly valid positions/motivations which is what I think makes it so interesting.
I've gone back and forth a bit on this, but I think I ultimately fall on the side of Option #2. The basic take would be based around the idea that there is always going to be criminal behavior, up to and including homicide, adult or otherwise, and that (from my take) there is more importance in providing for the legal recognition/defense of life over the raw numbers of killings. It may sort of be around an idea of exercising authority where it can be, sort of the same argument that we don't support military intervention in every conflict around the globe even if it could save lives, but we focus on the domestic sphere, or it might be something of a 'justice'-first take in putting more emphasis on the law itself upholding morality over seeking to affect the number of moral/immoral individual actions.
I do frankly think that Option #1 has the better claim to being "Pro-Life", the second option is maybe more something along the lines of "Pro-Personhood", though they do certainly both fall under the umbrella of the pro-life movement today, just different focuses.
Good and Gentle God,
We pray in gratitude for our mothers and for all the women of history who have joined with you in the wonder of bringing forth new life. You who became human through a woman, grant to all mothers the courage they need to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.
Give them the strength to live and to be loved in return, not perfectly, but humanly. Give them the faithful support of family and friends as they care for the physical and spiritual growth of their children. Give them joy and delight in their children to sustain them through the trials of motherhood. Most of all, give them the wisdom to turn to you for help when they need it most.
