No Longer a Person

What's up with Consumer Reports casually inserting a box labeled "Abortion Options" in an article on birth control (More and Safer Options)? A bit too casually. And do they consider abortion one of the safer options? I know there are many people who wish everyone would just shut up about this and who would like abortion to be no big deal at all, but you can't change reality. It is always a big deal. It is taking a human life, no matter who or how someone redefines it. A rose, by any other name, is still a rose. Consumer Reports is being irresponsible with this report. By not mentioning any negative aspect of abortion they are leading people to make a very serious decision without all the facts. Perhaps they believe what you don't know won't hurt you but they are dead wrong about that. In fact, the combined decision of over 850,000 women who have had "legal" abortions in the U.S. every year (that's over 2300 a day!) is having dire effects on our country and our people. Worldwide totals must be staggering!

Brought to my attention by Worldnet Daily.

"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate of human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest gift-a child-as a competitor, and intrusion, and an inconvenience. IT has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners." -- Mother Teresa

Do we understand what society really wants? They want the right to have sex whenever, with whomever, and however they want, and they want to do it with no penalty. This is a right that is beyond the power of any government to confer. How could we be such fools? It is one thing to engage in great social experiments, but did we have to experiment with our children?

We are now moving into the results stage of a social experiment so monstrous that it boggles the mind. The results may be irreversible. If not one more illegitimate child were born, if no more abortions were permitted, we would be generations recovering from what we have already done. But there is no sign that any change is in the offing. The American and Canadian governments are determined-the craziness will go on.

When I speak of our governments, I am not referring to any individual, institution, or political party. I am referring to a system that has a mind of its own and that is subject to no one. It is like a giant computer run amuck which no one can turn off. Its prime directive is to increase in power and control, and to destroy any opposition to its will. -- Ronald L. Dart

Who is the final authority on morality? Well, God is, of course. If then the final authority on morality is God, and if the state becomes the final authority on morality, then the state is god. If you have wondered at the growing hostility of our own government toward the "religious right," look no further. The God of the Christians is competition for the state-god.

We are headed for great conflict between church and state. When the founding fathers of our country penned the Constitution, they had no intent of making the church subordinate to the state. But the state-god will brook no competition. The first commandment of the state-god should be familiar: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." In the end, the state will insist on subordination or elimination of all opposition.

The state is powerless before many things, but doesn't know it. As the state grasps at more and more power to solve its problems, it will finally enslave its people. Men of earlier generations knew this-had experienced it. We seem to have forgotten. -- Ronald L. Dart
