Our leaders are ignoring real problems

I have come to the conclusion that pro-life is a misnomer. The movement is destroying the health of women and thereby of babies. We have lawyers using religion to practice medicine. Have we returned to our turn-of-the-century eugenics past? The problem may go back to medieval European misogyny. Laws have cropped up punishing parents for tragic or even non-tragic behavior concerning their children. Thereby criminalizing imperfection.

Meanwhile back at the rainforest, real problems are being ignored. Social adaptations necessary to the well-being of all life are being ignored by self-centered leaders, who cannot get over themselves and get on with present issues. We cannot be animals. We can only go lower or higher. Worldwide, our leaders consistently go lower.
