Mainstream Media Accounts on Abortion of "Wrong" Baby Speak Volumes
A Sarasota, Florida, doctor recently lost his medical license on the basis of an error he made in 2006 in an abortion procedure where he mistakenly took the life of the healthier fraternal twin of a boy diagnosed in utero with Down Syndrome.
In covering the story, most media outlets have noted that Dr. Matthew Kachinas aborted "the wrong baby."
Baptist theologian and radio program host Dr. Albert Mohler took the airwaves on his April 19 program to discuss both the case in question and the media's coverage thereof.
Here's what he said about the latter at the opening of Monday's program:
Last week I saw a news story that simply stopped me in my tracks, and I wrote about it at AlbertMohler.com, an article entitled, "Aborting the 'Wrong' Baby?" There's a question mark at the end of that question. It has to do with a news story that came out of Florida.
Dr. Matthew Kachinas had been stripped of his medical license last week by a Florida medical review board for -- and this is how the media discussed it -- for aborting the wrong baby.
It's one of those things that immediately catches your attention because, something huge is going on in this story. And a part of the story is not just what happened but how the media, and the culture-at-large, is understanding what happened.
Well, this medical doctor lost his license because, according to the media -- and evidently according to medical authorities in Florida -- he bore responsibility for aborting the wrong baby, and by the wrong baby, they meant, evidently, it was rightful in their view to abort the baby that had Down Syndrome, but it was "wrong" to abort the "wrong" baby.
Instead of performing the abortion on the baby with Down Syndrome, it was the other baby that was aborted, the one that is defined in the media stories as the healthy twin.
Sadly, and tragically, this situation was made all the more horrifying by the fact that the baby with Down Syndrome was later aborted as well."- Click link for more.
