Whatever happened to the belief, articulated by Thomas Jefferson, that the chief purpose of government is to protect life? What about the principle expressed in the Declaration of Independence that the right to life is divinely bestowed and universal? These convictions are what set America apart as a beacon of liberty and civilization for the rest of the world. Yet somehow we've gotten to a point where the deliberate annihilation of unborn children through surgical or chemical means is sacrosanct to the liberal Left. The same bleeding hearts that will march in the streets to save the whales, the turtles, the trees, and the Palestinians will also march in the streets to preserve a woman's right to kill her baby. Their self-absorption and hubris prevent them from seeing the disconnect.

Ronald Reagan once said if you subsidize something, you'll get more of it. Planned Parenthood's abortion business will continue to grow so long as a complicit Congress continues to pour tax revenues into this killing machine. But where is the outrage among pro-life members? All they do is wring their hands and furrow their brows and complain that they are impotent to stop the practice. So year after year the government pours millions in to the coffers of the biggest abortionist in the business, and year after year hundreds of innocent children perish because of it.

God help us. Then again, why should He?
