Today marks the 38th Anniversary of what should be the most infamous date in our history: January 22, 1973. That is the day abortion became legal in the United states, by judicial fiat. It is the day that the US Constitution became little more than a liberal plaything to be construed as they wish.
Yet that is a relatively unimportant point in the grand scheme of things. We became a nation that tolerated legal murder solely for the sake of a form of birth control. Solely for the sake of personal will, no matter how you slice it. And please refrain from that tired argument that it helps the poor, unless you really only believe that the poor are rabbits who cannot control themselves. Because if that’s the case, they need more aid than a single manufactured ‘right’ would ever grant them.
Abortion is not a mere religious issue. It can be argued quite convincingly and in simple philosophic terms that abortion is a moral affront, without making any overtures towards religious thought, an in exactly the same way that racism and sexism can be seen as moral wrongs.
Abortion cannot be allowed on the basis of that truly stupid and insensitive argument that, “I’m personally opposed, but I can’t force my views on others”. Really? But you seem to think that you can force views on the arts and education and race and sexism issues without regard to that sense. Why are more minor questions than human life to be treated so absolutely when the larger questions are so summarily dismissed?
We should note that many on the left through unions and such support abortion. Have the individuals involved ever asked themselves whether they might be placing their own good over saving human lives? Have they ever thought that maybe they are putting their mere economic well being ahead of protecting those most in need of our defense?
The Democratic Party in particular reaps great benefits from framing the question that way. Have the people who vote for that party ever thought, even for a moment, that if a political party does not want to protect a human life from its very conception that maybe we can’t really trust it on other issues? If the Democrats won’t help defend a person right from the start of life, how can we really believe that they have the best interests of ourselves at hand on other issues such as health care? Especially when a part of their version of health care involves disposing of, uh, shall we say, inconveniences such as babies? On the grounds of the abortion issue alone, no thoughtful man or woman ought to feel free to vote Democratic.
Yet they do. As such, if the demise of America is at hand, it began on January 22nd, 1973. Every time you pull the lever for an abortion supporting candidate, you drive another nail in its coffin.
