Just Tell the Truth

“How can we speak of the termination of a pregnancy when what we really mean is the destruction of a human life?  How can we talk of therapeutic abortion when pregnancy is not a disease needing therapy and what abortion effects is not a cure but a killing?  How can we talk of abortion as a kind of retroactive contraception when what it does is not prevent conception but destroy the conceptus?  We need to have the courage to use accurate language.  Abortion is feticide: the destruction of an unborn child.  It is the shedding of innocent blood, and any society that can tolerate this, let alone legislate for it, has ceased to be civilized.”

— John Stott, English Christian leader and Anglican cleric
(Lutherans For Life.org).
