Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Judge Sentences Innocent Teenager to Cruel and Unusual Torture

The Constitution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Judges are supposed to rule according to the Constitution. Ironically, a judge in Virginia is sentencing an innocent teenager with cancer to cruel and unusual punishment. Abraham Cherrix is being forced by a judge to undergo chemotherapy. In a television interview, this young man described his last experience with chemotherapy as "worse than death." He has would like to take alternative treatments.

In order to justify their taxpayer funded salaries, Accomack County Department of Social(ist) Services stuck their nose in the Cherrix's private family affairs. Thanks to this judge (who has sentenced an innocent teenager to cruel and unusual punishment), the county social(ist) services department has joint custody of this teenager.

When it comes to abortion, we are often lectured by pro-aborts about the need to be "pro-choice." We are told "this is my body" by women who want to sacrifice the innocent children inside of them. Yet these pro-abortion activists are strangely silent in the case of Abraham Cherrix. In his case, since he is biologically incapable of carrying a child, there is no second body inside of him, thus he should have the CHOICE to avoid taking treatments that very possibly could result in his death. Oh, silly me, "pro-choice" only comes into play when people want to kill pre-born babies or passively euthanize disabled people.

It's fascinating the way judge's minds work. It was a "private family affair" and "the law" supposedly granted Michael Schiavo the right to bring about Terri Schiavo's death via brutal and unnecessary torture (withholding food and hydration from her). Judges voted pro-euthanasia all the way up the line from the state courts through the Supreme Court (refusal to hear the case equals a pro-euthanasia vote). In a dramatic reversal, this judge (who I must note did not have anything to do with Terri Schiavo, but is a judge nonetheless) decided it was necessary for the Accomack County Department of Social(ist) Services to stick its taxpayer-funded nose in a private family affair about medical treatment.

Taxpayer-funded abortion mills in various states are allowed to see young girls and provide birth control or even child slaughter services to them without parental consent. Yet in this case, this poor young man's PRIVACY is being abridged by the government. The hypocrisy of this case is disgusting.
