Over 20 years ago, the renowned pediatric surgeon and Surgeon General of the United States, C. Everett Koop, M.D., joined with one of the leading Christian thinkers of the 20th century, Francis A. Schaeffer (1912 - 1984), to analyze the widespread implications and frightening loss of human rights brought on by the practices of abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. They viewed their time as a crucial turning point. Choices were being made that undermined human rights at their most basic level. Practices once labeled "unthinkable" were then considered acceptable. The destruction of human life, young and old, began to be sanctioned on an ever-increasing scale by the medical profession, by the courts, by parents, and by silent citizens.
Refuting the faulty logic of their time (and predicting 21st century thinking as well), these two great minds set a clear base for Christian thought on these subjects.
