Abortion has long been one of the major social issues for Christians. Supposedly.
Abortion has long been one of the major issues for Conservatives. Supposedly.
The fact is very few Christians or Conservatives actually care one way or another about abortion. It seems that common sense would tell one that there is something majorly wrong with the violent destruction of a human being. Instead, we care more about 'endangered species' than we do about millions of unborn children.
Recently, information has come available that abortion plays a big role in the health care 'reform' that President Obama and the Statists wish to shove down the throats of the American people. Yet, very few people are bringing this issue up. Instead, we are more concerned about the death counseling the elderly will have to undergo. (For more information regarding abortion in the the healthcare 'reform' see: White House Fact Check Site on Health Care Filled With Inaccuracies and Could Abortion Sink Health-Care Reform?)
Don't get me wrong, I think that is evil to its very core, but what about the slaughter of the innocent babies? I guess, even to Christians, since they are not born, they don't count.
But now, we are told that aborting babies is good for the environment! You read that right. Do you want to save the planet? Do you want to help humanity survie the coming envirnomental holocaust? Then abort that kid now!
And of course, the real culprits are filthy American women who are burdening the world with their children. The rest of the world is OK, have kids, just odn't overdo. But Americans: please, kill them all!
I know, I am being extreme, right? Not really. Read what appeared on the New York Times Green Inc. blog. Also read, Reproduction and the carbon legacies of individuals, and official 'scientific' study conducted by Oregon State University.
Maybe what we should do is merge the healthcare and environmental bills together, and kill two birds with one stone. No pun intended. Abortion could be made mandatory for 'certain people' in order to 'save the environement'. Those who willing have abortions, can be given tax credits and tax breaks. It's a win-win situation!
Sadly, I am afraid that our nation is not far off from such a sick, twisted and depraved 'final solution' to our problems.
But will Christians continue to remain silent? Probably. As long as it does not affect them, they could care less. Just look at the way they vote. Much like the Christians in Germany during the days of Hitler, the Christians in the United States will remain silent, as long as such policies are not applied to them. Then, when those policies are applied to them, no one will care, and there will be no one to speak up.
