What's in progress: McCain or The Sanctity of Life
Depending on the news of the day, two posts are in progress. One is tentatively titled, Why I will not vote for John McCain for president. The second one, which could be posted any time regardless of the season, is The Sanctity of Life. To me, the second topic is diametrically opposed to how the Left has tried to kill Western Civilization - mostly by being ashamed of our success and failing to get us to all be ashamed, then making "the right" of women to kill their unborn children into a political issue supported, of course, by the abortion lobby and the money these folks generate (much of which comes from our tax dollars). While I'm ranting a moment, I believe that the illegal alien invasion we are experiencing today is also (among a myriad of reasons) filling the vacuum we have created through the 40,000,000+ abortions we have allowed since 1973. That's right, 40,000,000 American citizens-to-be killed by us. It's horrifying when you think of it. Actually, it is a nightmare. If you look at it coldly, one could say that it is in the interest of the state (as in States' Rights) to protect its unborn citizens-to-be. Those little pre-born babies weren't going to grow to be red wood trees, my friends. Then if one wants to be really cold, one could say, "Well, yes, but the state also has the right/interest in decreasing it's welfare costs." Does the state then engage in selective annihilation of its pre-born? It is a slippery, immoral slope any way you look at it. I know there are "reasons" for some abortions. I have just never been able to reconcile abortion on demand at any age with the principle of the Sanctity of Life.
