A woman I respect said something incredibly profound: ‘We need to bring back SHAME.’ I couldn’t agree more. The pride of entitlement is filthy and crude. We see much of this shamelessness on the sidewalk.
Tuesday is Death Truck day. That is the day when the aborted remains of human babies are picked up by the ‘medical waste’ truck. Even 35 years later I am still shocked, ashamed and grieved when I see a truck that was my aborted baby’s hearse.
I am one for the ‘shock value’ of things because the attitude of people today is one of disregard and ambivalence. When I was in the secular workplace it’s tough getting anyone’s attention long enough to do my job in sales. And if you can get their attention they don’t want to hear the truth, they want to hear someone agree with them. Entitlement and privilege has replaced TRUTH.
Entitlement and privilege does not recognize shame or the shock of it. I can’t tell you how many times pre-abortive women and men have walked past that truck with complete disregard KNOWING that their unborn child is about to become ‘medical waste’ and that truck about to be the baby’s hearse. No shock, no tears, just ‘entitlement and privilege’.
Now, to be fair (kind of) I was not aware of such things when I had my abortion BECAUSE NO ONE TOLD ME. I had to find out about shame all on my own. The shock of knowing I killed my own unborn baby still resounds in me. But today on the sidewalk, there is only ‘entitlement and privilege’.
Do I justify my abortion by saying I didn’t know? Of course not, I don’t justify sin but I will say that if someone had told me the TRUTH about abortion I would have made the better decision. But today people don’t think in those terms, they are still wallowing in ‘entitlement and privilege’ that the media and government provides at a cost to every conservative and Christian.
