The Leading Edge: Wormwood Writes on Abortion

October 17, 2013

The Story:The Subtle Art of Destroying Humans,” by John Knigt at

The Lead: I am glad to see you are finally learning to be subtler in manipulating your human. As I had warned you, I was concerned that your boisterous assault on the unborn vermin with the rare chromosomal makeup (the “disabled,” as the other vermin call them) was going to expose all our plans to destroy them.

“So I congratulate you on the recent article in The New York Times, 'Breakthroughs in Prenatal Screening.' I can see your skills developing. We must continue on this path as it does two important things for us: 1) it further blinds the humans to our real schemes; and 2) it rids us of having to deal with those foul, weak, “special” children that the Enemy calls “indispensable.” We mustn’t lose our grip here.

“Because of this article, and unlike my last letters to you, I actually have a few things to commend — things to see you repeat.”

Why it Matter: The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis has been read and loved by many across the globe. Here, we are reminded that the battle over abortion is as much a spiritual battle as it is a political, philosophical, or cultural one. Let the reader understand.
