Obama celebrates abortion
On the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, president Obama issued an affirmational statement:
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.
Obama’s words may sound reasonable to the humanist. But the dynamic here is just like taking God out of the schools and handing out condoms – it won’t work. You either take a stand for morality or you are swamped by immorality. And our nation is reaping the fruit of being swamped by immorality.
In order to enshrine “reproductive rights” as a Constitutional right, our governmental structure has had to make it a sacred totem that is immune to any degree of normal legal oversight. To wit, see the horrors, recently revealed, of the Philadelphia doctor who apparently routinely stabbed babies to death after their live birth. This was allowed to continue for years, despite complaints, to the tune of possibly hundreds of babies. The Pennsylvania Department of Health, when queried how this could occur, actually answered that it did not know that abortion providers fell under its jurisdiction. The Department of Health!
There are no easy answers for this nation. At this point I’m not certain that it is possible to rebuild its foundations. Humanly, perhaps it is not. But then, all things are possible with God.
But I am certain that each individual must make his own choice on how he is going to live. And I am equally certain that we must use the time we are given as salt and light to a dying culture.
A prayer here for all the babies and lives of women and men, and families destroyed and being destroyed by abortion.
Update: Here’s the unbelievable tale of how the squalid Philly clinic was allowed to continue unscrutinized by the authorities for years. This nation has become morally dysfunctional. Thanks, humanists.
