Yesterday Roe v. Wade turned 40. What does one say about the murder of nearly 55 million innocent lives? Nearly 40% of the babies killed have been black. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, would have been proud. Abortion is nothing more than an extension of the eugenics movement, embraced by progressives all over the world until faced with the horror of Hitler’s gas chambers. Eugenics is making a comeback on the left with “climate change” usually being the catalyst. Truth be told, eugenics never went away. In this country alone over 20 million black babies have been murdered while we turn the other away calling it a “choice.”
The left is completely disingenuous in their gun control demands, all based on “protecting” children. If the left wanted to protect children, they would oppose abortion. Instead they support the murder of over 1 million babies a year. The number of deaths at Sandy Hook Elementary School is little more than a days work for a Planned Parenthood “doctor.” The left is pushing a culture of death on this nation, it begins with abortion. But it doesn’t end there. Sarah Palin’s notorious attack on Obamacare’s death panels is the next wave in the progressive culture of death. We have, at least for the moment, lost the abortion fight. With 40 years of abortions killing 55 million babies, how can we pretend we’re close to victory?
The next battle is going to be over end of life healthcare and care for terminally or mentally ill children. In Japan one high ranking government official wants the elderly to just “hurry up and die.” In Britain thousands of old people are sentenced to death by NHS every year. The argument for killing off these old people is the same as the argument for killing the unborn. They’re a financial cost to society and taxpayers. They contribute nothing while costing a small fortune. The left collectively become fiscal hawks when it comes to killing off the young and the old.
This is what happens when we start living in the collective that Obama is pushing. When taxpayers foot the bill for endless welfare and healthcare, people who use too much become expendable. In fact, they have to be eliminated in order to keep the system going for those who still contribute enough and/or are capable of keeping those in power in office. The unborn won’t contribute or vote for at least 18 years. The old have already contributed but are no longer capable of it and won’t be around long enough to matter.
This is the culture of death pushed by progressive, collectivists like Obama. The country goes right along with it because we have left our historic Christian faith. We’ve lost touch with the values our ancestors just a couple generations ago were taught. We’ve replaced the Christian faith with progressive secular humanism. The end result is that our society exalts celebrity, government and faux “education” while it murders 55 million unborn children in 40 years. We pretend to be terribly sophisticated and civilized to the point that it’s galling. Meanwhile we elect politicians who are setting up the next wave of death via socialist healthcare. We’re a decade away from the government cutting off funding for old people, dying or otherwise.
We Christians cannot hope to change our culture via government or law. The only way we can change the culture is through the church. We must get ourselves into God fearing churches that focus on sound, historic theology. We must invite our friends and neighbors to join us at church on Sunday. We must pull our children out of the godless government schools, we can no longer pretend like our kids are a light in the darkness. They’re no such thing, they’re impressionable covenant children. Most importantly we must pray to our Lord that he would call our nation back to Him. No amount of human action will change things for the better, that can only happen through God.
