If you're looking for a life issue with stakes as high as abortion, why not something that actually threatens life? Like war? Or the death penalty? Or the kind of poverty and destitution that lead to death? Why aren't 'abortion and war' the most 'insidious and dangerous' threats to the common good? Or 'war and the death penalty?' Or 'war and poverty?'

The short answer to his questions is that abortion and homosexual unions are inherently sinful. A war can be just, as can the death penalty. Poverty is not sinful either. While sins such as stealing or false imprisonment can lead to poverty, poverty can also be chosen righteously as it has been by many saints. Abortion and homosexual acts cannot be justified under any circumstances.

This author, as well as many others, chooses to view the world through the eyes of someone who will never leave this world and so cannot see the eternal consequences of these issues. He only focuses on whether or not something is lethal to the body without regard for its effects on the soul. Unfortunately this shortsightedness is a common symptom in our society.
