I don’t write much these days, but there are some articles that leave you speechless – to say the least. Here is Maureen Dowd accusing Rick Santorum of religious fanaticism, and praising the classical liberal agenda.
Rick Santorum is called “a small-town mullah” because he is personally against contraceptives and of course he is pro-life (among others). Read the article for yourself.
According to Dowd, “Virginia’s Republican governor, Bob McDonnell… also wants to drag women back into a cave.” That is because he wants to pass a bill that requires “women seeking an abortion to undergo an ultrasound…an invasion that anti-abortion groups hope would shame some women into changing their minds once they saw or heard about traits of the fetus.”
“The most ominous trend for the pro-choice movement is the increasingly pro-life character of younger Americans. As some observers have pointed out, a generation that can see ultrasound images of themselves in their own baby books tends to see abortion for what it is — the killing of a child.”
Some very good points here. We are the generation that can see much better the images of future babies and record these for posterity…
“Here is the great quandary for the pro-choice movement: More than 35 years after Roe v. Wade, they find that abortion is anything but the “settled issue” that some abortion proponents were certain would be the fate of the abortion question soon after 1973. To the contrary, the pro-choice movement is losing ground, not gaining. The frustration of pro-choice leaders is starting to show. They have little reason to be confident.
Abortion remains the greatest scandal confronting the American conscience. Those of us who yearn for America to return to its senses on this issue can take hope, even as we have much to do. Rebuilding a Culture of Life is no easy or quick task. This is one of the greatest civilizational challenges faced by this generation.
America has an unsettled conscience about abortion. We should be thankful for this fact, but not satisfied.
An unsettled conscience is far better than a conscience settled on the killing of unborn children.”
Indeed! Still – much remains to be done and prayed about!
Dear President Obama,
I hope and pray that you are listening to pastor John’s Piper’s message!
About 500,000 little girls are aborted every year in the USA. That is 500,000 to many!
May God give you wisdom and courage to do the right thing!!!
