The recent debate surrounding the U.S. House of Representative’s vote in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was very telling, as was the act’s name. The name raises the question, “Is the Act good only because the child feels pain?”
In debating the act’s merits, we cannot allow its opponents to gloss over the fundamental issue: Are we talking about a human being? If pain is the only issue, then the bill becomes unnecessary if an anesthetic can be painlessly given to the unborn child prior to the abortion.
We must not lose sight of our real goal, a restoration of a biblical understanding that our humanness is rooted in having been made in God’s image; that alone can stand at all points in opposition to the various reasons given for abortion by those who support it.
