Lesbians and abortion

Check out this Australian TV commercial, then check out this interesting twist from an article at Charisma:

Michael Brown writes:

What if the “born gay” fallacy was true and it was possible to identify a “gay baby” in the womb? Would the flaming liberals who so fiercely cling to a woman’s “right to choose” affirm her “right” to abort a gay fetus?

But for the sake of argument, and to go along with the absurd premise of the commercial, what if homosexuality was innate and there was a test to identify gay babies? Would it be acceptable to abort a gay fetus? Where would liberals stand on this moral issue?

As I noted in my book A Queer Thing Happened to America, “In 2008, Southern Baptist leader Al Mohler created a firestorm of controversy when he suggested that if it was determined that people were born homosexual, then perhaps a treatment for homosexuality could be found.  Gay activists were outraged by his comments (is anyone surprised?), and he even came under attack from conservatives who felt he had capitulated to the ‘born that way’ theory.

“But let’s think about this for a moment: If it is OK to put a girl with gender identity disorder on medication to delay the onset of puberty, then, as a teenager, to offer her sex-change surgery, then to put her on hormonal medication the rest of her life, why would it be wrong to look for a medical ‘treatment’ for homosexuality? And why would it be wrong to begin such treatment in the womb?

“Why is one treatment—a far more radical one!—fully acceptable while another one—far less radical and invasive—unacceptable? Why is one, which involves genital mutilation, applauded as progressive while the other, which does not affect the physical body at all, considered regressive? …

“If a gay person could be saved the stigma of rejection in a heterosexual world and could have new desires that would allow him or her to have offspring with the person he or she loves simply by getting a series of injections, wouldn’t it be worth it?”

All such talk, of course, is completely off limits (simply stated, if homosexuality is not a sickness, it doesn’t need a cure), but if gay activists want to push their “born gay” argument, then it’s only fair to ask if it’s morally acceptable to abort an allegedly gay fetus. Why not?

What a complex and complicated world we live in.

Thoughts?

    I thought she said “you are having a thespian.” What is controversial about having an actor in the family?

    Those who disagree with traditional marriage and pro life views will not be able to see their own hypocrisy.

    The root problem has not changed, man believes himself to be his own standard for moral behavior rather than God.

    Is it wrong for me to think that homosexuality is a disorder? I know that is totally not a cultural thing to say. Actually, pretty bigoted, I guess. But, the genes of a person already identified the sex of the individual. However, for one reason or another, a person will come to a conclusion that they are not what nature said they were to be. Whether situational, emotional, or mentally, they are put out of genetic alignment. If this is a disorder, then why not diagnose a treatment?

    Wow…. are you kidding me. This is so absurd. My brain is still reeling. Is this the new norm for telling parents if is a boy or a girl. No one is born gay and it is not a lifestyle it is called sin. People. make a choice to live in this sin.Oh brother… They have gone to far to right a wrong. Forgive them Lord.
