What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
Just when you think it can’t get more ridiculous.. The CNS reports:
Ms. Magazine’s latest pro-abortion message invites women and girls who have undergone the procedure to submit their names for inclusion in the magazine and sign an online petition stating that “I have had an abortion.”
The Ms. Magazine petition asks females to “publicly join the millions of women in the United States who have had an abortion in demanding a repeal of laws that restrict women’s reproductive freedom.”
“These women are celebrating an act of violence that has proven traumatic for millions of mothers and deadly for their innocent pre-born children,” [president of the American Life League Julie] Brown stated. “We know from all the research that’s been done that most wom[e]n who have aborted their children are number one, not proud of what they did, and number two, are not going to come out and publicly say that they are,” she said.
But Ms. Magazine insists that abortion is “a very common, necessary and important procedure for millions of women in the U.S.” and promises to send all of the petition signatures it collects to the Bush White House.
Common? Unfortunately, yes. Necessary? Nice try, but no cigar. It’s only “necessary” in extreme cases such as incest, rape, or threat to the mother’s life. Other than that, and for the vast majority of cases, it’s selfish.
The fact that this magazine is soliciting women to openly declare that they’ve murdered their children is appalling.
The Ms. Magazine campaign, Brown said, is fueled by fears of the growing “pro-life” movement.
“The biggest reason why they are doing this is because they are petrified,” said Brown. “The pro life movement has made tremendous advances in Congress, in the state legislatures and it continues to move forward. And I think that some of this is to frighten the complacent woman who has had an abortion into thinking that if they don’t do something they will lose their ‘right to abortion.'”
That’s right, ladies and gents… the “pro-life” movement is growing. And growing fast. We’re sick of judicial activists determining the law of the land. Theirs is the job of judging existing law, not creating it. Far-reaching decisions such as these should be decided by the people through their elected representatives who are accountable (most of the time, anyway) to their constituency.
Thank God for The Family: A Proclamation to the World, which states:
“Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.
Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity
Children are entitled to live, not to get a blunt fork jabbed in their head during a partial-birth abortion. Forgive the gruesome details, but that’s how it is. “Pro-choice” liberals would like to shy away from the details. They don’t want a face (such as the cute one pictured above) put to the topic of abortion. That makes you more compassionate, charitable, and willing to sacrifice of yourself for your child. But no, no, don’t do that. Think of #1, and circumvent the consequence of your action (sex) so that you can selfishly move on in life, accumulating wealth and social status.
Get a life.
