Typically, the medical recommendation for first trimester infections [is] abortion, therapeutic abortion, because most of those babies would never have a functional life [or] existence.And when summarizing, restated
...therapeutic abortion is the standard recommendation for first trimester rubella infection...Between lectures, I struck up a conversation with a peer about it. I knew he was a Christian, but I assumed he was pro-choice (I was correct). I mused aloud that abortion was like a deliberate miscarriage. He agreed. And I further mused that a miscarriage was the death of a baby. He agreed again! Then, I wondered whether there was any reason to cause a miscarriage if that was the natural end of many CRS pregnancies. I felt like he kept repeating the words "option," "beliefs," "have to," and "if you were the only one" in various combinations, and when lecture began we stopped talking.
I thought about linking this with Good Friday and editorializing about redemptive suffering, mercy, and persecution; but I'm too tired. (Probably should've made my "normally-sized meal" a little more substantial.) Since you can probably make the connections yourself, I just say: this has been your report on the status of the U.S. medical school. Please pray for us.
