Dr. Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books, but people appreciate him even more because he always puts things in perspective. Recently, he gave a statement about abortion that is sure to have everyone who opposes abortion concurring.

Dr. Carson spoke about the fact that ancient civilizations are criticized for the brutal practices of human sacrifice and child sacrifice, but he adds that modern society should be criticized as well because we have legalized abortion. Dr. Carson states this, referring to a question about abortion:

“Well, it’s interesting that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations heathen because of human sacrifice but aren’t we actually guilty of the same thing? The good thing is the American populace is moving closer and closer to understanding that abortion is murder. Every year we’re getting better on that regard.”



CNS News reported:

Dr. Carson, the former director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, made his remarks on the Focus Today television show (online), hosted by Perry Atkinson.
He continued, “So, I think it can be done but we have to be, you know, smart enough not to allow ourselves to believe as the dividers would: ‘Hey, you got to stick to this and if you relent in any way you know you are abandoning your principles and your values.’ They’re playing us. We have to take the Esther approach: Get ourselves into positions where we can actually change it. Then we can save all the babies.”
