There was a time, a long time ago, when people looked out for each other and neighbors and families helped when someone was down.  Churches reached out too.  There was a time when we were our brother’s keeper, not because we had to be, but because we chose to be.  It was just the right thing to do.  Then came the progressives (of both parties) in the early 1900’s.  Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR.  They drastically increased the size of the federal government and scope of the government’s power.  They started programs to “help” people.  And what happened?  People have, ever since, become more and more and more reliant on the government.  People have stopped turning to friends and neighbors and churches for help and just have just gone to the welfare line.  People have become less self sufficient and more dependent.  The family unit is no longer valued.  What do we need dad for?  We get more with Uncle Sam.  It’s really very, very sad.  We now have a generations of people who rely on the government for most of their needs.  Food, housing, childcare, education, and now healthcare.  What has happened to us?  What happened to the people who didn’t want a king ruling over them?  Where did that go?  What a sad and mournful people we have become!  The “American Dream” used to be to work hard and do your best and work hard and then work hard some more, and then create a better life for your kids than you had.  That’s certainly not the case now.  Why work hard and do your best when the government will give you everything you need?  Plus, now if you work really hard and become successful and wealthy, you are villianized.  When did success become so bad?  When did hard work go out the window and envy become the rule in America?  When did we become a people who would turn over their God-given rights for government given handouts?  When did we become so wrapped up in ourselves we stopped caring about our brother?  Oh America, my heart breaks for you!  How sad and pitiful you have become!  You are now as a beggar in the street, when once you had the castle in the clouds.  Oh, how the mighty have fallen!!

A Word About Abortion

In the last couple of weeks, a group called Live Action has come out with three videos exposing the practice of aborting babies because of their gender.  The videos are definitely worth watching.

 

 

 

It’s so sick to me, that anyone could carry a child long enough to be able to tell what gender they are, and then choose to kill them because they aren’t happy with the child’s gender.  At 18 weeks of pregnancy, many women can feel their baby move.  The baby also has arms, legs, internal organs, bones, muscles, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and maybe even some hair.

You can read about how baby has developed at 18 weeks on Baby Center.

I don’t understand how this is allowed.  The pro-abortion people often say abortion is a women’s health issue.  How is this in any way a health issue??  Killing a child for the sake of killing because you don’t like the baby’s gender?!  This is beyond horrific to me!

I wonder if the people who choose to do this really value the children they choose to let live.  And, at what point does the baby become a valued member of their family?  I mean, if you can just kill the baby, when they are clearly a baby, where do you draw the line?

And, these are some of the same people who, rightly, get upset because people in some parts of the world do kill their babies after they are born if they are girls.  Of course that is heinous and horrific!  I have to ask though, at what point does it become wrong to kill a child?

My answer is that it is always wrong!  There is never, ever a point where it’s OK to have an abortion.  People can debate “when life starts” all they want, but I want to put it to you like this:

If scientists discovered a once celled life form on another planet, everyone would be very excited about the new life we’ve found.  And they should be.  So, why don’t we value human beings the same way?

And why is the baby not considered alive when it comes to abortion, but if someone were to kill a pregnant woman, they would be charged with 2 counts of murder?

Many abortion providers fight against ultrasound laws.  Why?  Because they know that many women will choose not to have an abortion when they see a beating heart and a baby’s body.  When you can see your baby’s heart beating at 7 weeks, there is no doubt that is a living being.

I’ve never understood the mentality of having an abortion.  To me, that baby is a life.  And let me add, this is not a religious issue.  This is a human issue.  A life is a life!  Period.

I wish people who are so quick to run to Planned Parenthood for abortions would consider the many loving couples that do all they can and simply can’t have children of their own.  While some women are quick to kill their babies because they are inconvenient or the wrong gender, there are so many who would do anything to have a child.  There are many families who would gladly adopt the baby these women are so eager to dispose of.

Like I said, I’ve just never understood what could make having an abortion ok with people.  It makes absolutely no sense to me.

They say it’s a health issue, or a women’s right’s issue.  But, what about the health of the baby?  What about the rights of the baby?  And, what about some of the fathers that fight against a woman having an abortion?  What about their rights?

I believe abortion is the most selfish act.  If you don’t want a baby, don’t have sex.  If that’s too hard for you, use some protection.  It’s really not that difficult.  Be responsible.  And, if you do find yourself pregnant, there is always adoption.  You don’t have to kill the baby.  There are people just waiting and waiting to give that baby a loving home and family.

I’m going to need someone to explain this to me.  Seriously.  And, I guess I should specify.  I would like a democrat to explain this to me.  I honestly would, because it just doesn’t make sense to me.  I’m not looking for a fight, just a simple explanation.

Ok, this is what I fail to grasp.

In New York City, the liberal government wants to ban the sale of large sugary drinks.  It’s supposed to help people be healthier.  Apparently, people aren’t capable of making their own choices when it comes to what they drink.  And, it’s not just large sugary drinks.  Trans-fats, too.  And even lunches children bring to school from home are being monitored.  All under the guise of making sure we stay healthy.  So, just to be clear, they believe the government has the right to regulate what you consume.  Do I have that correct?

Next, liberals fight for abortion rights.  Shoot, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, just endorsed Barack Obama and donated $1.4 million to his campaign.  Liberals and the abortion industry seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They fight for the “right” of women to have abortions.  For women to be able to “choose.”  After all, they argue, it’s a woman’s body, and she should decide what happens with it.  Do I have that right?

I’d hate to be going on wrong information here.

SO—-

Why is it not OK for the government to tell a woman what she can do with her body, but it is OK for the government to tell her what she can eat or drink (which, I think would be considered what she can do with her body)?

Is anyone else confused by this?

I find it awfully hypocritical that liberals can fight for abortions under the guise of “it’s my body and I can do what I want,” but they feel perfectly justified and logical in dictating what people can and can’t eat and drink.

So, it’s OK to kill babies, but not to drink large sodas?

Just looking for some clarification and reasoning here.
