The problem is, he doesn’t — care I mean. In the name of science, he and other liberals have bought into some very volatile and ever-evolving theories out there about climate change that are neither credible nor within the management realm of governments. But at the same time, the same leaders refuse to examine or else choose to reject the real and amazing scientific and medical advancements of the past four decades that show us, now in colorful, three dimensional, digital, sound-accompanied detail the intricacies of life in the womb. No-one can deny that it is life. It is moving, ingesting, pumping, sucking, feeling, hearing, genetically complete life. Thus, the massive, legalized, government-funded destruction of it is a tragic genocide, the likes of which outruns the horror of that inflicted by the Nazi regime of the previous century. Where do you read the word “care” in that scenario? He doesn’t really care about life.
He doesn’t really care about freedom of religion. It’s outraged the whole Catholic world that he has mandated that businesses provide birth control insurance for their employees. It should outrage us all! Many women opt for methods of birth control that are abortifacients; that is, they, to one degree or another, serve to prevent the development and birth of eggs that have already been fertilized. They (the abortifacients) destroy life. Included in the coverage of this insurance that Mr. Obama would force business owners to provide would be the “morning after pill” (now available as recently FDA approved Ella or as RU-486), a drug that is toxic for eggs already fertilized. (The new Ella pill is even worse than RU-486 because it can be used for longer periods of time following intercourse and it works during more times of the month.) Mr. Obama would force business owners, including religious universities and hospitals, to violate their consciences and, in many cases, go against the teachings of their respective churches in order to comply with this insurance mandate. This sort of federal infringement on conscience and religion is unprecedented. Up to this point, pro-life citizens have not been happy about the legalization of murder to the unborn. But, heretofore, we have not been forced to participate. This amazing piece of legislation would, for all practical purposes, force pro-life business owners to pay for abortions. This represents a change from our government allowing us to support or participate in the practice of abortion to its forcing our participation.
And if you think he has been pretty bold about “social” change, just wait until he starts governing without an election looming in his future. I believe he will care even less. There will be no motivation after next November for him to cater to the electorate on both sides of the fence. His agenda will not be hindered by his need to pacify the moderate swing voters. I don’t like to be political in my writings. but I am morally bound to speak for the unborn who cannot speak for themselves. I am spiritually convicted that I must contend for an atmosphere in America in which our religious freedoms are defended rather than slowly (or not so slowly, in this case) eroded. If what I have frequently and passionately defended from a spiritual viewpoint becomes a political hot-button issue, I will keep on saying the same truth. While politically hot issues rise and wane, truth does not evolve. There are lives at stake– lives which will never be given the right of voice or vote. Further, once our freedom to behave as we’re convicted is usurped by government, reclaiming it has historically required the shedding of even more innocent blood.
Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude and perseverance. Let us remember that “if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom,” it is a very serious consideration … that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event.
I didn’t write the previous paragraph. It’s from the lips of Samuel Adams in another century. What Mr. Adams didn’t know was that the “miserable sharers” were destined to include not only the “yet unborn,” but literally millions never to be allowed even the initial human right of birth and life.
Religious institutions have been given an extra year to comply with the mandate of ObamaCare regarding birth control. That’s enough time if we get freedom’s message out before November. I will not suffer the attack tamely. How about you?
