Elephants Don't Believe in Abortion

Fact: Elephants don't believe in abortion.

The birth of a new baby elephant in Indonesia this month made me realize this fact. I'm not a gambler, but I'm willing to bet money that you've never met an elephant that is a proponent of abortion. One could argue that elephants can't reason. They live by instinct, not reason, so naturally they don't "believe" in abortion because they don't "believe" in anything.


The new baby elephant born in Indonesia has been born into the "Flying Elephant Squad." This little girl will be raised to protect villages from wild elephants that come in from the forest and, looking for food, do harm to the village farms and the villagers. The Flying Elephant Squad keeps these wild elephants at bay because they are protecting their own.

We can learn a lot from the elephants. Even their human handlers know that they need more elephants in this elite squad so that not only can the villages be protected, but the wild elephants causing the issues can also be protected.

And everyone knows that you won't get more elephants unless more elephants are born.

So, even reasonable men do not perform abortions on elephants.

According to this article, written in January of 2012, the number of abortions in the USA since 1973 was estimated at 54,559,615.

Fifty four MILLION, five hundred fifty nine THOUSAND, six HUNDRED fifteen. I'm sure there's a more recent estimate.

We have shrunk our own military potential......the ability to protect our own with our own.
We have shrunk our own progressive potential......we might think we're doing ok, but that's only because we will never know what potential we destroyed and thus won't know how much better we could be doing.
We have shrunk our own hopes for the future.....because a great, great portion of our future was snuffed out, never to be known.

Fact: Elephants don't believe in abortion because they were created with an instinct to live.

So was man. Sin destroys that instinct, covering it so that it sounds unreasonable.

I'm very glad that elephants don't believe in abortion. I wish mankind would be as smart.


  1. Jeez, did you know that elephants bully weaker members out of herds when resources are limited? During droughts and what not.I saw this on like the Animal Planet or something and was shocked by it. I thought only humans were smart enough to do something this shocking and cruel.

  2. No doubt there is much bullying in the animal world, Curt. I just used this elephant story as a catalyst against abortion; a point of interest, if you will. I do know about bullies in the animal world....from black widow spiders who eat their mate when they are finished with him, to daddy polar bears who eat their young.

    Certainly animals and people, alike, will go to extreme means to support and/or retain life. Just as a baby in the uterus will fight the instruments used to kill him/her, trying desperately to stay alive.

    I'm sure it's no surprise to you that I'm thoroughly pro-life, eh? You would be disappointed in me if I was anything else!

    Always great to hear from you.
