Francis Schaeffer’s Whatever Happened to the Human Race begins with a universal reality, tested only by the answer to one question: “Culture can be judged in many ways, but eventually every nation in every age must be judged by this test: How did it treat people?”
The horrors committed at the hands of Kermit Gosnell and his staff were judged today for the murderous acts that they are. The guilty verdict, while bringing relief to some, will only serve to remind us just how far we as a culture have fallen in our moral duty to treat people with dignity and respect, to honor all life, and to speak out against injustice. If only today marked the end of a dark point in history and shed light to guide us on the right way forward. When will we unite in our acknowledgment that abortion hurts women, men, and children? There is no place in society for the physician who takes a life. Indeed, whatever did happen to the human race?
