This is probably one reason why abortion is so strongly supported by humanists – because the case for abortion is a militant case against evidence, science and reason, and one of the strongest forces against science today is Humanism.There are scientific facts - that life begins at conception, that abortion kills a baby and that it damages the mother's health. And there's the abortion lobby with its supporters of all stripes and their lies about legal and "safe" abortions:
Abortionists in this country are actively burying risk research just as tobacco companies did many decades ago. There are now literally piles of genuine medical research which show what most would deem dire elevated risks from abortion -- not just to the baby killed in the procedure -- but to the woman and also to the future siblings of the aborted baby.It's because of their betrayal, the pro-aborts can get away with using euphemisms such as "reproductive health" (or even - "maternal health") to describe nothing but abortions on demand.
Just as tobacco companies once deep-sixed any negative research on the smoker's health and well-being, abortionists and their extensive lobbying web of far-left, social-engineering "feminists" now scamper to squelch every new research study which demonstrates elevated risk associated with their killing-field business model. In this diabolical scheme, abortionists are far, far worse than tobacco companies could ever have been, if only for the single reason that abortion is controlled not by known capitalistic corporations, but by the very people whom the public trusts for its healthcare.
We give our medical doctors all benefit of doubt and trust them implicitly to tell the truth, the whole truth as they know it and nothing but the truth -- every single time.
Not even the most deluded ninny ever went to a tobacco shop seeking trustworthy medical advice.
No, that kind of trust is reserved to the medical community. So, when medical practitioners are less than fully truthful about risks to their wholly personal and invasive procedures, the public has a due right to be not only dumbfounded but outraged at the professional betrayal.
