This coming week marks the 46th year since the Extreme Court made up out of thin air an excuse to give virtually unrestricted rights to ending the life of an unborn child in its mother’s womb in a savage procedure called abortion.
There will be a massive March for Life in Washington, and as usual, the media will for the most part ignore it. Since that dark day in American history, over 60 million helpless little Americans had their lives ended by butchers masquerading as doctors, taking big money for doing a deed that is better suited for the uncivilized Babylonians of ancient times than supposedly enlightened and educated people of the 20th Century.
Over these 46 years, many things have changed, most dramatically being a better understanding of biology and the science of DNA and when life begins. Science is rarely, as some assert, “settled,” but in the case of the beginning of a human life, it pretty much is. We know that at the time when 23 chromosomes from a male and 23 from a female unite at conception, there is physical consequence that constitutes the creation of a separate and wholly unique life, sharing a combination, but not a replication or duplication of either mother or father. The resulting 46 chromosomes constitute a new person who will have that very DNA for the rest of his or her life.
The argument for abortion was once that the life in the womb was just a clump of random cells, but advanced sonograms have shattered that as laughable nonsense. Before most women even realize they’re pregnant, the baby has a heartbeat and is forming a discernible human form.
This should not be a political issue. It’s bigger than anyone’s view of taxes, property rights, use of the military, or border walls. It matters that we value every human life or we don’t. lf there is such a thing as a life that doesn’t have intrinsic worth and value or if some lives just aren’t as valuable as others because of arbitrary standards, then we are re-entering the logic of slavery in which we deemed that one person could actually own another person, even determining whether one lived or died. I hope that is disturbing to you.
With the advance of real science, more Americans than not self-identify as being pro-life and nearly 75% of Americans at least believe there should be some restrictions on abortion. Abortion providers like Planned Parenthood push hard for the right to end the lives of the unborn, but most people don’t realize that the roots of this evil and corrupt enterprise are steeped in harsh racism.
The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an advocate for eugenics, the notion that birth should be the result of careful breeding of only the finest…and let me add whitest of human beings. She was a blatant racist and believed black people to be inferior. Many of her efforts to stem pregnancy and birth were focused on the black community.
At a time when statues from the Civil War are being torn down because to some they represent racism, why don’t the same people demand that not another dime is spent nor one moment of recognition to the racist Margaret Sanger or the killing machine she created?
If there is good news to celebrate it’s that abortion numbers are actually dropping—from over 1 million a year to 600,00 a year, but intentionally killing 600,000 babies a year in the US is hardly something to celebrate. It’s something to be sorry for; to repent of, and most of all to stop!
I will not vote nor support a candidate for any office who thinks it’s okay to dismember a baby. As we pass yet another milestone—this time of 46 years since the court ruling, we should pray, speak out, and work to make this the LAST year we tolerate such madness. We should never think any person is disposable or expendable, or worthless.
