Why treating the female body like property misses the gospel and fails the unborn.Modern feminism has spent the last century fighting to give women the freedom to have jurisdiction over their voting rights, their ambitions, and their bodies. Some of the movement has done great good. But some of it has done great harm by reinforcing a common and problematic idea: that women’s rights ought to be understood in terms of property rights. “Owning your own body” seems like a natural enough freedom—who wouldn’t want it?—but in fact, it delivers a reductionistic conception of human flourishing that fails both women and the unborn.We see this most clearly in the abortion debate, vaulted into the public square 46 years ago with the landmark Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade. Both this ruling and the subsequent Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision codify an ownership view of the self. Women’s bodies are a form of property, and with this property comes the constitutional “right of privacy,” wrote Roe’s majority Court. In practice, that means a man is given a temporary invitation to trespass, and the fruit of that act (if any) belongs to the woman—at least until the child crosses from womb to world.You don’t have to search far to find arguments for ownership.

There will come a day, according to Isaiah the Prophet, that Egypt (that often divinely judged, anti-Jewish nation) will be “blessed of God!” Let’s watch the Lord (via the eye of Bible Prophecy) make this happen. And it all begins with a healthy dose of the “Fear of the Lord!” “In that day shall Egypt […]
When Isaiah wrote the first verse of what has become his sixth chapter (“In the YEAR that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple”), he gave us an exact date from which to study his prophecies. (We already know that […]
One of the most unusual behaviors of a man of God, ever! Isaiah 20 supplies our Text today: “At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked […]
