Over at the Heidelblog Mr. Scott has come to his logical senses, if only briefly. It looks like the woman's right to choose is not a paradox after all. In fact, killing an unborn "fetus" is a matter of deontological and apodeictic moral law. Without logical propositions there is no possibility for knowledge in general, and there is no possibility for morality in general or in particular. R. Scott Clark nails down the logical reasons that we ought to reject the infanticide we call abortion. Of course, religious, political and philosophical liberals are not bound by the laws of logic or by the moral law of God as it is revealed in Holy Scripture. (Exodus 20:1-17; Romans 3:20; 7:7). Van Tilians love to exploit the idea that logic is a creation of God rather than the very architecture of the ontological being of God. John 1:1 makes the logical propositional truth claim that "God is Logic." If only R. Scott Clark were consistently logical! His comments below are apropriate:
What of those humans who are killed, in utero, before viability? I’ve had this discussion with some ardent pro-abortion types in recent months. They seek to deny that humanity is inherent to pre-natal humans and they seek to make the humanity of the pre-natal infant contingent upon the will of the mother. This is the Nietzschean “will to power.” As a matter of fact and logic, humans conceive, gestate, and give birth to humans. We don’t magically become human at 23 or 24 weeks of gestation. We were human before viability and we are human afterward. Remember that viability is a shifting standard that depends on technological developments. So, logically, viability is an arbitrary standard. Human life develops organically. (See: Heidelblog: Killing Infants Is A Crime).
