Reflections #2

Back in October of 2010 I was hoping that the Obama administration’s stranglehold on America’s government would be broken in the upcoming mid-term elections.  I had been researching his history on abortion and was concerned that the longer he had unfettered power, the more unborn children would die.  At the time I was writing for several different blogs and websites and never actually finished the following piece.  It was a rough draft of a pro-life article I intended to clean up and add to, but it never happened.  I came across it today as I was going through some old files and instantly remembered how I felt when I began writing it and how concerned I was that the President and his pro-abortion allies would accelerate the growth of America’s abortion industry if they didn’t suffer losses in the upcoming election.  I began by titling the draft of what I intended to become a completed piece, Elections Have Consequences for the Unborn.

Elections Have Consequences for the Unborn

Before you cast your vote next month take the time to find out where your candidate stands on life.  Are they pro-life or pro-choice?  It makes a world of difference to the most vulnerable among us.

The pro-choicers will give you the standard talking point that they feel abortion should be “safe, rare, and legal.”  How can a procedure that results in the death of a human being 100% of the time be considered safe?  How can a procedure that has been performed in the U.S. over 50 million times since 1973 be considered rare?  And how can a society sanction the murder of innocent children under cover of the law?

Roe v Wade ushered in one of our nation’s darkest hours and sent America sliding downward to a point where the value of human life has been diminished.  This loss of respect for the sanctity of life has had a cumulative effect on our society, resulting in senseless violence in schools and neighborhoods that were once considered safe havens for our children.

The Obama, Reid, Pelosi regime has no problem with abortion on demand, and that speaks volumes on their stance on life and the right to life of America’s unborn children.

This is what Illinois State Senator Obama said on March 30, 2001 while arguing against a ban on abortions in Illinois: “Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or other elements of the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine month old child that was delivered to term.  That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place.  I mean it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”  Mr. President: with all due respect; duh.

America deserves better, and has a lot of things that need to be made right. Reversing Roe v Wade is one of the most important.


As this year comes to an end I’m reflecting on some of my past work on behalf of the pro-life movement.  On August 21, 2009 I wrote a short piece titled Calling Murder What it is.  I knew at the time that I wanted to do my part to end abortion and save our children.  In the years since I wrote this piece my life has changed in so many ways.  I’m now the proud grandfather of 2 priceless little boys.  I no longer go to work every day just to get a paycheck.  I see the fruits of my day job as a means to provide for others and to be able to contribute to worthy charities.  As I near my 60th year of life I look forward to the time when I can dedicate all my time to helping others and hopefully fulfilling the silent promise I made to both my grandsons that I would leave them a world that was better than the one I was born into.  What follows was written on a steamy August day nearly four and a half years ago.  If you’re counting the days by the Planned Parenthood method, that would be about 5.5 million dead babies ago.

Calling Murder what it is:


The abortion mill at Planned Parenthood’s Sioux Falls, South Dakota clinic may be running a little slower today.  On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier ruled that under South Dakota law women are required to be told by their health care provider, prior to having an abortion performed, that abortion ends a human life

Judge Schreier’s specific ruling was that doctors must make the biological disclosure “that the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.”  From where I’m sitting that pretty much sums it up.  Anyone not understanding this disclosure, or worse yet, not understanding that life begins at conception, should not put themselves in the position where a child may be conceived if they are unwilling or unable to do everything in their power to insure that the new life in their control is allowed to flourish.   More importantly, any doctor not understanding the ramifications of performing an abortion should revisit the very first statement in the Hippocratic Oath: “First, do no harm.”

As I’ve written previously, over 50 million babies have been murdered in America since that dark day on January 22, 1973 when the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade protected a woman’s right to have an abortion.

Our country needs to realize that the senseless murder of innocent babies does not come without consequences, both moral and societal.  Planned Parenthood gets millions of taxpayer dollars every year to run its abortion mills, making every taxpayer involuntarily complicit in the murder of millions of innocent children.  I, for one, am outraged that even one dime of my hard earned money is used to kill babies, and beyond outraged that a supposedly civilized society could condone these grisly procedures.

My friends, we are better than this.  The rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as granted by our Creator; the very core principles that our country was founded on, are diminished, diluted, and ignored every time another baby meets its fate at the hands of an abortionist.  All Americans need to realize that you cannot break these principles; you simply break yourself against them.

This ruling is one more chip out of the abortion wall and hopefully is one more step towards reversing Roe v. Wade, and an irreversible move back to an America where every baby is guaranteed its God given right to life.
