World View Chapters 22-23 Written by Nancy Pearcey and Charles Colson Presented by: David M. Hasz
Social Inequity What first caused Bernard Nathanson to campaign for legalization of abortion?
The Cause The fact poor women were having to seek back alley abortions while affluent women found sympathetic doctors and faked miscarriages.
The team Nathanson and Lader joined together and founded the National Abortion Rights Action League. These MEN fashioned the strategy to legalize abortion.
The Strategy Make it a women’s issue only women were allowed to express an opinion on. Demonize the Catholic hierarchy. – bunch of white males.
Nathanson switches careers Moved from caring for mothers to caring for babies and performing abortions. The ultrasound machine was invented. Trouble for Nathanson!!
Facts of human development Heartbeat on 18 th day Six weeks – major organ systems developed 12 weeks no new development
Nathanson comes clean Confesses to over 60,000 deaths as head of CRASH. He wrote: “in abortion we are taking life”
Scientific not religious Nathanson’s problem with abortion. He stated that a society is judged by how it treats the weak, he found a weaker person than the poor women… the unborn.
The Silent Scream Released in 1985 and transformed the abortion debate. Ridiculed Nathanson for faking the tape.
Then.. When tape was proven real, they decided to show that fetuses were not able to feel pain. (no fact basis for this)
Nathanson’s final outcome Nathanson eventually got saved! Partial Birth Abortion Ban loses in the senate.
What does this mean now The draw then is the draw still.. American materialism Advertising industry – the promise of redemption through materialism and commercialism
The gospel of commercialism That for every need, every insecurity, every worry, there is a product for sale that can satisfy our need, pump up our self - esteem, soothe our worry.
Advertising … Ads took on religious overtones. Not sin-guilt – redemption, but problem – anxiety – resolution. Some personal faith – “I found it”, “It’s the right thing”
Other religious forms Ads take on personal relationship with the divine: “Me and my RC”, “You’re in good hands” Some blessings: “Thanks, Delco”
Some even have religion blatantly Delivered from flood by Allstate Volvo can save your soul There’s a spirit in that bottle
Why the poor are better off Material riches offer no comfort… The poor are better off than the rich because the poor still think money will buy happiness; the rich know better.
Others lurking Consumerism is America’s favorite substitute religion, it is not the only one. Others have proven equally seductive...and even more destructive. Other answers to redemption
