Peter Jones on Infanticide and Dr. Gosnell

Many in the world today are taking a long look at the abortion industry because of the May 14, 2013 guilty verdict and life term penalty handed down by a jury (which included 9 out of 12 pro-choice jurors)  to Dr. Kermit Gosnell. During this time of reflection I wanted to put forth some of the pro-life’s best arguments.

In the film series “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE?” the arguments are presented  against abortion (Episode 1),  infanticide (Episode 2),   euthanasia (Episode 3), and then there is a discussion of the Christian versus Humanist worldview concerning the issue of “the basis for human dignity” in Episode 4 and then in the last episode a close look at the truth claims of the Bible.

I truly believe that many of the problems we have today in the USA are due to the advancement of humanism in the last few decades in our society. Ronald Reagan appointed the evangelical Dr. C. Everett Koop to the position of Surgeon General in his administration. He partnered with Dr. Francis Schaeffer in making the video below. It is very valuable information for Christians to have.  Actually I have included a video below that includes comments from him on this subject.

Francis Schaeffer: “Whatever Happened to the Human Race” (Episode 1) ABORTION OF THE HUMAN RACE

Infanticide, An Expression of Oneism
by Peter Jones    |   April 17, 2013

Jones_PeterDr. Peter Jones is Director of truthXchange, and Adjunct Professor of New Testament, as well as Scholar in Residence, at Westminster Seminary California, and an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. He has written several books including The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back (1992), Gospel Truth/Pagan Lies (1999), Capturing the Pagan Mind (2003), and The God of Sex (2006).

According to news reports, District Attorney Seth Williams will soon reveal the charges he will file against Kermit Gosnell, the 69-year-old abortion center owner who, after failed abortions, killed Karnamay Mongar and seven other infants with scissors. We have rarely seen such a grisly case of blood-letting, yet the mainstream media are not reporting it.

Even the somewhat liberal Kirsten Powers of USAToday states:

“The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace…When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria…Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn’t make the cut.”

Had Kermit Gosnell killed dogs, we would be seeing wall-to-wall coverage, but  his filthy clinic and his ghoulish collection of aborted babies (dating back thirty years!) had never been checked by the “authorities.”

GosnellWhy the inaction and deafening silence? It is a question of worldview, a Oneist worldview.

Most of you who read my Inside/Outs have concluded that our American/Western society is “awful.” But how do we analyze “awful” and what can we do about it?  Among the many offensive changes is the chilling holocaust of abortion.

Rare have been the times that biblical Christianity has been in such open conflict with its enemy, today calling itself by the innocuous term, “progressivism.” Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, the Marxist feminist PhD Harvard American Historian, observed about the Sixties, at the end of her life in 1998 “within a remarkably brief period …has occurred a cataclysmic transformation of the very nature of our society.”

There is a simple way to understand the deep conflict of contemporary worldviews. Don’t be intimidated by the word “worldview.” According to the Apostle Paul, there are only two: You worship creation or you worship the Creator (Rom 1:25). This is the ultimate “binary,” by which I mean things that are and remain distinct or different, and will never be fused into one.

The two irreconcilable worldviews may be described in the following ways:

Oneism

The world is self-creating and self-explanatory, and everything is made up of the same stuff, whether matter, spirit or a mixture. There is one basic kind of self-creating existence. In one way or another we worship evolving Nature as divine. Since everything shares in the same divine substance, all distinctions are eliminated and everything is god.

Twoism

The world is the work of an external Creator who caringly made it but is separate and different from it. There are two kinds of existence—the Creator who is uncreated, and everything else, which is created. This worldview celebrates two-ness. We worship as divine only the personal triune Creator, who defined distinctions as the essence of all existence.

If you can do the theological arithmetic of One or Two you will understand the deep conflict in our world. Present opposition to the Gospel is twofold:

1. The promotion of a Oneist view of all of reality, and,

2. The determined elimination of “the binary,” that is, all expressions of biblical Twoism, and especially the binary of the distinction between the Creator and the creation.

In forthcoming Inside/Outs I intend to show, in each area of life where we see conflict, how various social disagreements find their roots in the religious conflict of these two worldviews.

So let’s see how Oneism and Twoism are evident in the issue of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Francis Schaeffer was right when he warned us a generation ago about the worldview known as secular humanism, which believed that since humanity is only the product of chance, then there are no moral reasons why we should treat fellow human beings as special, created in God’s image.

But there is now a further reason to explain this human tragedy—the “logic” of Oneism.  Pro-abortion advocates argue that the fetus is part of the woman’s body. She “owns” it and is thus free to get rid of it, as she might choose to have a face lift or a tummy tuck. (Biologists understand that the mother’s own body treats the fetus as a foreigner, as evidenced by morning sickness and the biological preparation for independent life.) Planned Parenthood recently stated, without embarrassment that the decision to kill the child who survives an abortion remains with the mother and her doctor! The binary is busted in this horrendous act of infanticide.

This is a noxious form of Oneism. The distinction between two human beings, each made individually in God’s image and deserving of utmost respect, is rejected in favor of the rights of one human being. The mother is important. The baby ultimately has no existence.

Oneism claims to unite us, but without the Twoist world of morals, Oneism leads to more than “awful.” It leads to total degradation and judgment.
