Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation

Rebecca, I sympathize. But if Roe v. Wade isn't overturned, how will we ever get laws against abortion at any level. Perhaps you plan to leave the country, but I want to stay in the U.S. So you have to take the first step, the only one available. Elect Romney and hope he appoints some Supreme Court justices who will respect and abide by the Constitution. Santorum is not going to be president, so leave it in the past. If Obama is re-elected he will literally have transformed this country, as he has always intended to do. Obamacare will be implemented and become institutionalized. The Surpreme Court will be populated with the likes of Sotomayor and Kagan for generations. You'll never, ever see an end to abortion on demand.

Imagine for a moment that your home is invaded by thugs who will do harm to your family, or perhaps even kill them. But then one of them takes a look at your three children and offers you a sinister Faustian bargain: pick one to die and the others will be allowed to live.

Would you helplessly choose one of your own children to die so that the other two may live? Would you trust a person whose moral conscience is so far gone to even offer such a deal to live up to his end of it?
