Last week Ireland turned its back on their pro-life Catholic heritage and voted overwhelmingly to legalize abortion. 66 percent of the voters supported lifting the ban on abortion. The decision is mourned by pro-life people everywhere, but celebrated by those who have a distorted view of the value of human life.
Coverage of the controversial issue has revealed some irony exhibited by some people on the pro-abortion side. One still photo captured the image of a woman who was participating in a pro-abortion gathering. She was carrying a small baby. Really?! You are carrying a small baby at a pro-abortion rally? Really? I hope and pray that that baby grows up to recognize himself or herself in the picture, realizes the irony of the situation and becomes a part of the pro-life movement.
I also saw an interview of a young lady who had had an illegal abortion. She was happy for the outcome of the vote, and she was glad that if she ever has a daughter, that she won’t have to face the same situation that she did. What?! You may have killed the only daughter you will ever have! Can you really not hear yourself? You honestly can’t see the irony?
As long as evil exists, people’s thinking will be murky. When the truth is obscured, lies become more believable. And sometimes people don’t see the irony.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”—Isaiah 5:20.
