Royal college warns abortions can lead to mental illness - Times Online

Question: Does the abortion make them crazy, or does their insanity make them have abortions?

To willingly kill her baby, a mother would have to be centered on her own pleasure, convenience, wealth, or some other selfish end--in other words, mentally ill. Of course she's nuts. And so is the father, grandparents, ministers, and the rest of the citizens who approve.

For a mother to rip her unborn from her body to be disposed of as so much garbage is unnatural and a war against herself. Natural affections, as Paul puts it in 2Timothy 3, are repressed and ridiculed. Such women are "silly women" who are laden with lusts [2Tim. 3:6], led astray by corrupt and evil men. Such sins can be forgiven through the blood of Christ, but not unless they are acknowledged to be sins and abhored.

Abortion is another legacy of the wickedness of the 1960's and its aftermath. Why does it take so long for the era to be recognized as an era of madness: rebellion against mother and father, against church and authority, against nature and decency, against truth and order?

"Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD." (Jer 6:15 av)

"Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities." (Jude 1:8 av)

"But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities." (2Pe 2:10 av)
