This is a microcosm of how the culture of death has lessened our vision, twisted our thinking, and dulled our emotions over the past four decades. We’ve come to a point where the leader of the free world was neither embarrassed nor ashamed to oppose legislation which would have spared the lives of girls who are being killed because they are girls and would have spared the lives of boys who are being killed because they are boys.
(Note how the “choice” for individuals to choose what type of child they want trumps the life of preborn babies who have no choice in which chromosomes they receive.)
The road we’re traveling is certain to lead to our demise, if it hasn’t already ushered it in. For we have literally come to a point where it’s politically fashionable for many of our leaders to oppose sparing the lives of the children who are being slaughtered in the womb because of their gender.
Will we stay on this reckless course, or will we abandon the path that has propelled us to the brink of moral collapse and mend our ways? There’s hope for the latter in that America is now unquestionably pro-life, but will that extend to how we vote when we step into the ballot box and select our leaders?
The war on conscience has proven to be a convenient catch-all for the war on life. It’s time to stop and think about what we, as a nation, are doing, and to exit this train before it takes us somewhere previous generations never dreamed we’d be.
