Same sex attraction and abortion

GAP. Showing the humanity of the unborn to those of all walks of life.

GAP teaches respect for the dignity of all human persons.

“I’m gay, so this doesn’t affect me.”  So said a female student at Western Kentucky University (WKU).

CBR volunteer Marie Bastone responded that abortion affects everyone – it’s the most fundamental of all issues.  Marie told her that she came from the union of male and female.  If her biological mother hadn’t nurtured her in her womb, she wouldn’t be here.  Both the young woman and the developing child have the right to fundamental human rights and legal protections.

We often encounter students with same sex attraction (SSA) during GAP. Sometimes they are ambivalent about the issue, like the WKU student.  They are indifferent about prenatal injustice, believing that they themselves are not affected.  Other students with SSA are committed pro-aborts and join protests against GAP.

People with SSA often demand rights that don’t exist, such as the “right” to marry someone of the same sex, yet all the while denying the fundamental right to live for our youngest citizens.  We point out that disconnect.

Yes, of course homosexuality is a sin and and Christians we must stand against sin.  It is also deadly, self-destructive behavior and we must obey God’s command to “hold back those staggering toward slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11-12).  But we also respect the dignity of all human persons, and that includes people enslaved by grave sin.
