One powerful word links both abortion and slavery together…
That word is “evil.”
A guest post by J. ournal.
Slavery was evil. Because it violated natural law, everyone knew at some level of their conscience that it was wrong even while shouting that it was a right. Many formulated justifications for slavery in order to rationalize it to themselves and others. Some even used the Bible to justify it. By its nature, slavery required treating its victims as sub-human. It was perpetuated purely for the convenience of its proponents.
There were those that wanted to abolish slavery and those that defended it. Thus, it caused a division where people who wanted to continue the practice moved to states where it was legal (and even celebrated). But where it was legal slavery didn’t just affect slaves – it also made the free people immoral. Slavery induced a culture of indiscretion, irresponsibility, and disregard for the sanctity of human life.
