We are destroying ourselves as a nation

This month, we observed an anniversary of annihilation that supersedes anything in history. Over 50 million dead. An ongoing war on the most vulnerable. An annihilation that is sanctioned by Supreme Court ruling. And is going to be (and has long been) carried out faithfully by one of its most able advocates, Planned Parenthood.

While this organization is being framed favorably by many politicians and media, they overlook one of the major goals pushed for by its heroine, Margaret Sanger, who wished to eliminate from society the “undesirables.” What have we come to as a nation? Abortion is now pictured as almost fashionable, supported even by the president.

And he would have you believe that the most important medical help available is the free contraceptives or its ancillary backup solution, the morning-after pill. We are destroying ourselves as a nation as we continue to pursue this path. Many of our potentially most valuable resources, our children, are being systematically destroyed in the name of choice. On this memorable date, the Roe v Wade decision, premised on a lie by a young woman duped into pretending she was pregnant, the innocent unborn were subject to death. May we be guided back to a path of life.
