Chuck Norris said he wonders if people value “bamboo straws” over human life after hearing of a new survey that showed only 26 percent of people view abortion as “always” or “usually” morally wrong.
Norris wrote a column for WND.com in response to the survey from the Angus Reid Institute. The Canadian firm found that half of Canadian respondents believe moral values are getting weaker in society.
In particular, the study showed that more respondents (46 percent) said sharing a streaming account without paying is morally wrong than said of assisted dying (20 percent) or abortion (26 percent).
In comparison, Norris pointed to the highlights of the study, saying “51 percent thought that using plastic straws is always or usually morally wrong," Faithwire reports.
“So, someone might have had their elderly mother euthanized, or had their unborn baby aborted, but they feel like a good person since they used a bamboo, not plastic, straw,” he said.
“Am I missing something?” Norris wrote in his column. “Do you value bamboo straws more than human life? In the womb?”
Norris has long voiced support for the pro-life movement. During the 2008 election season, Norris encouraged voters to “vote their values.”
“We can’t just be concerned about our finances,” Norris wrote at the time. “We also must be concerned about America’s future and those who will occupy it. Our posterity matters. Their rights matter. And that includes their ‘unalienable rights,’ with which they have been ‘endowed by their Creator,’ and among them are the quintessential rights: ‘Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’”
Norris said he is praying for President Joe Biden to remember that as he approves policies.
“The enduring value of humans is echoed in the Bible in Psalm 139,” Norris wrote. “’For You, God, created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.’”
