Roe v. Wade was passed by the Supreme Court in 1973 among a flurry of controversy and was presented to the American people as a fairly benign, little-used medical procedure to aid in the case of a woman's life being endangered or some other catastrophic and unforeseen set of circumstances that couldn't be remedied in any other way.
Now 40 years later, the law has been liberalized, augmented, amended and abused until it has become a tool of unabashed birth control, and if its momentum is left unabated, it will eventually become a means by which babies both inside the womb and outside the womb can be destroyed legally.
Its defenders call it "a woman's right to choose" and nowhere on the books can you find another law that gives latitude to one human being to end the life of another with no judge, no jury - which now brings up the highly controversial proposition of when life begins.
With me, that's no problem because my Bible tells me that our Creator knew us in our mother's womb.
End of subject.
But, even the most radical of the abortion proponents should be willing to agree that a baby who is capable of living outside the womb is a human being with a heart, a soul and the potential to become a productive member of the human race.
Considering the recent expose of events at Kermit Gosnell's Woman's Medical Society in Philadelphia and his heartless murder of delivered, living babies by severing their spinal cords, I can't help but wonder if this is really an isolated case or if there are others around the world who are willing to perform these totally illegal and immoral procedures for no other reason than the blood money they receive.
And, how much latitude is taken by abortionists behind closed doors and why isn't this, the bloodiest and most despicable of all medical practices, not strictly controlled and regularly overseen by the Powers That Be?
Abortion is presented as benefiting the health of women and yet filthy, incompetent slaughter mills like Gosnell's are allowed to operate without any regular supervision. Is this beneficial to the health of women or has the convenience of abortion become so prevalent among American females that the politicians just keep hands off?
Are you listening, ex-Governor Tom Ridge? What about that bill you signed into law in Pennsylvania all but exempting abortion clinics from regular inspection and supervision?
Speaking of politicians, somebody said that President Obama has never seen an abortion bill he didn't like. While in the Illinois State Senate, he voted against the Born Alive Act which would have required babies that survived botched abortions to receive medical care.
He is also a big supporter of Planned Parenthood, which is strange since it's an organization that was founded by Margaret Sanger, whose interest in abortion was not only for giving women "a right to chose" but also for eugenics, which would - in her words - "assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit" which also included races deemed inferior, African Americans included.
America is barely meeting the replenishment ratios required to prevent losing population in the coming generations and many of the Western European nations and Japan are well below that line, which is not surprising when you consider the fact that the equivalent to the population of a medium-sized town is being lost to abortion every year.
More unborn children are aborted every year in America than have been lost in all the wars this country has ever fought put together.
There is a price to be paid for America's abortion sins and the bill will come due soon.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
