Media Deeply Concerned About Missouri Abortion Law, Not So Much About Sharia

A subject I rarely touch on, but, this is not really about abortion, as such. The setup

It’s a question that has perplexed philosophers, theologians and scientists for thousands of years.

Pythagorean Greeks, early Christian church fathers, Talmudic rabbis, Sunni and Shia thinkers, Hindu brahmin and modern bioethicists have grappled with the fundamental, ultimately unknowable, mystery: At what point in our biological development are we infused with a soul? At what point do we become human?

On May 14, the final day of their legislative session, Missouri lawmakers declared the answer, and last month, by withholding his veto, Gov. Jay Nixon signaled that he agreed. On Aug. 28, their answer will become the law of the land.

“The life of each human being begins at conception,” according to Senate Bill 793, which will add new regulations to the state’s 24-hour informed consent law for abortions. “Abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being.”

Those words will be displayed “prominently” on brochures that abortion providers will be required to hand out to every woman seeking the procedure – even if they don’t happen to believe the Christian theology the words represent.

Obviously, this simple bit of belief, required in a State that is predominantly Christian, a state in a country that is predominantly Christian, is sure to upset some people. Like those who work for Planned Parenthood, a business that relies on women getting abortions on demand

“Those are not sentiments that all the world’s religions, or all the people in the state, believe in,” said Paula Gianino, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri.

The story then goes to great lengths to show what other religions believe, including those who are practice Islam. Interestingly, the media rarely goes out of their way to highlight what Islam believes about other issues. In this case, we are simply talking about when a life growing inside of a womb becomes a human being, rather than just the joining of living cells. The law simply requires a short phrase to be added to brochures. Nothing massively intrusive or repressive. But, what of Islam, and Sharia law, which the media brushes away as no big deal and “can never happen in the USA” (despite its growing presence in Britain, France, and Germany, among others)?

  • Women are inferior to men.
  • Women should have fewer rights and responsibilities than Larry the Cable Guy.
  • Women count for one-half of a dude in giving evidence in a court of law.
  • Women should be horse whipped if they ever make their husband feel like a dork.
  • Victoria’s Secret Miraculous Bra (with extreme level 5 cleavage) makes God angry.
  • Women can’t say squat in regard to whom they’ll marry, what they’ll wear, where they’ll live, or whether or not they can divorce their cheating and/or abusive husband.
  • Girls can be wed beginning at the ripe old age of frickin’ nine.
  • Women should be cool with hubby having a couple of hoochies or female slaves on the side.
  • Women, on the pretext of “honor,” should be locked up, isolated and unable to have a girls’ night out at Mango’s on Ocean Drive.

Say, where are all the feminists yelling about “my body, my life” when it comes to Islam?
