17 High School girls make a pact to become pregnant!

THIS is what happens when human life is devalued to the point of being expendable on the basis of choice. What is the big deal with becoming pregnant as part of a fad if you can “fix the problem” by abortion? We have lost a sacred view of life in this country; God help us and have mercy upon us.

Romans 2:7-9 (English Standard Version)

7to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. 9There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek,

    The attempt to link the pregnancy pact to legalized abortion must be based on divine revelation, since there’s no other evidence for it. Instead, you may have noticed. the suggestion is more that the girls wanted babies to give themselves direction in life, which is more likely linked to the idea that women’s identity is to be defined primarily by their role as mothers, an idea that the pro-choice groups are generally quick to oppose.

    Oh, and as a Jew, I applaud your choice of biblical quote.

    Clint, I’m very wary about making the sorts of connections you’re making here. Particulary in the case of an unfolding story where the truth of the matter hasn’t been fully disclosed yet. I suspect your conclusion is tenuous at best.

    What is it that makes this alleged (and possibly over-hyped?) decision on the part of the girls in question a logical consequence of permissive abortion views? You have not said, or better still, not argued. I am more inclined to think along the lines of the above commenter, specifically, when he suggests that such a “pact” (if it does turn out to be true) might be more likely linked to the idea that women’s identity is primarily defined by their role as mothers. But then again, the commenter did not argue this position either.

    The simple fact of the matter is that we don’t know much of what has happened here.

    Hi Xav:

    I apologize for the delay in my response. I am finishing up a hebrew class, teaching another class, and more.

    You are right. I really did not think this post through when I wrote it. I certainly didn’t research the entire fiasco before I posted and just shot off commentary off the top of my head. My line of thinking was that only in a context where having a child is not taken as seriously anymore (b/c one can dispose of the child at the change of mind) could a group of girls get together and create a pact to all have children, without really thinking through just how sacred bringing a human into the world is. It is true that there is debate over whether the initial statement (where the principal affirmed the presence of a pact) featured in an online TIME article is correct. We will have to see what is true and what isn’t as it unravels…

    -Clint
