Is abortion a form of discrimination?
Listen to John Piper on the connection between abortion and racism.
Besides having racist effects, abortion is discrimination based upon one's degree of development and location, and is in fact more offensive and objectionable than racism and sexism because it almost always results in the death of its victims. Francis Beckwith explains:
Just as skin color (racism), ethnic origin (ethnocentrism), gender (sexism), national power (imperialism), and birth date (ageism) are irrelevant to one's possession of fundamental human rights, so is one's degree of development and location inside or outside the womb (natalism). Unfortunately, this politically correct prejudice, manifested in the practice of abortion, nearly always results in the death of its victim" (Francis Beckwith, Politically Correct Death, 12).
