By the time Michael Brown is laid to rest, his body will have undergone 3 autopsies. Unlike Al Sharpton, I don’t know what happened, so I won’t speculate. What I do know is that Michael Brown’s life was priceless, but no more priceless than that of the police officer who shot him, and no more priceless than the more than 3,000 unborn children killed today in America. When I see so much angst over the very public loss of 1 human life I can’t help but wonder how long America’s abortion industry would remain viable if placed under the same scrutiny as Ferguson, Missouri.
If you weighed in on the death of just 1 of the innocent children killed by Planned Parenthood today would it make a difference? The Civil Rights of every unborn child killed today were violated. Eric Holder is on his way to Ferguson, Mo. to investigate the killing of Michael Brown; supposedly to insure that his Civil Rights were not violated, and to stir the pot of raw emotions for the news media. Why doesn’t he visit the closest Planned Parenthood clinic on his way? He can see firsthand how innocent Americans are brutally killed every day for no good reason.
Mr. President, why do you feel it is appropriate for you to comment on the death of Michael Brown? Was his death more important than all the young black men gunned down in Chicago last weekend? Why is the death of an 18 year old human being more compelling than that of an 18 week old unborn baby? Would you pay as much attention if a young white man had been shot by a black police officer? Sir, I think we both know that the only reason you have thrown the weight of your office into this case is to try and generate some positive P.R. and to divert the news cycle from all your recent failures.
Sir, whatever the circumstances, the death of any human being for any reason other than natural causes is a tragedy. A systemic disregard for the sanctity of life is running amuck in the greatest nation on earth. We kill over a million of our unborn children every year and then act surprised when young people kill each other over trivial differences. We foster a culture of death and then try to convince ourselves that we aren’t part of the problem. We all want to look to someone else for the answers when the gravity of our inhumanity becomes apparent, reluctant to look within ourselves.
Mr. President, for a little over a year now I’ve been looking within. Until we stop killing each other and allowing the most vulnerable among us to be killed for a fee, our downward spiral to depravity will continue. We all have a choice. We can be part of the problem or part of the solution. I’ve made my choice. Have you?
