“This is our first task, caring for our children. If we don’t get that right we don’t get anything right. That’s how as a society we will be judged. And by that measure…we honestly say we are doing enough to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm? I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days and if we are honest with ourselves the answer is no…these tragedies must end….” President Barack Obama.
Bet he didn’t expect his words to promote the pro-life movement … but everything he said was perfect. I am so glad Blackstone films used his words in their video. As soon as he made that statement I remember every pro-life site of Facebook ran with it…. all pro-life organizations across the nation nodded their collective heads and said, “Yes, Mr. President, yes, listen to your own words, we do need to keep ALL our children from harm!” All the children, especially the most vulnerable among us, the unborn, must be protected and kept safe from harm. Let us as a nation follow through and do this.
Did he realize once he made that statement that it would, in a sense, “backfire”? The most pro-abortion president ever; who when he was a senator voted four times (FOUR TIMES, not once, not twice, no, not three times… he voted FOUR times!) to SHELVE (read: willingly, knowingly murder) babies born alive from late term abortions. This man happily voted for this and then makes that statement about keeping our children safe from harm… hm. Yes, Mr. President we do need to keep them, ALL of them, safe from harm. Let us as a country end the ultimate atrocity, the largest tragedy, the most despicable holocaust of our time: abortion.
But will we? We (not me, mind you) voted the man back in, knowing full well what his policies were. We have become an ill-informed nation that accepts and/or is indifferent about the murder of innocent babies. We have gladly accepted the lie spewed by so-called ‘feminists’ that women have the ‘right’ to abortion, which they sugar-coat with the words ‘reproductive freedom’ and ‘choice.’ But what choice does the baby have? What about their freedoms and their pursuit of LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? They say being pro-choice is being pro-women, but is it? What about the 750,000 female babies murdered by abortion every year? Don’t they count? (Obviously not).
The original feminists, Alice Paul, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were all pro-life. They believed abortion was an exploitation of women and infanticide (which it is!). How have we traveled so far from their original intent, to protect women and give them rights and freedoms. Abortion does the opposite. It is slavery and ruins women in more ways than one.
Unfortunately I believed the pro-choice lie for over twenty years… now that I have seen the light and am now adamantly and militantly pro-life I just don’t understand how anyone who has a conscience can believe murdering the unborn is “good.”
When I argue with people about this issue their final statement usually is, “I want my daughters to have the right to make their own choices about their bodies. I don’t want someone telling them what to do.” Okay… so, wait… then you are okay with your daughter murdering her baby, your grandchild? Really!?
At times I feel it is all hopeless and I feel helpless… but I trust in the Lord and know that we will win out in the end. The pro-life movement is growing. Pro-lifers are getting younger. And what gives me the most hope is that abortion clinics are shutting down (Yay 40 Days For Life!)! At the end of the month hundreds of thousands will converge on Washington for the annual March for Life. But don’t go looking for coverage from any of the mainstream media. They ‘choose’ to ignore it, or they cover the pro-abortion protesters. If you want to see the whole day watch EWTN. I wish I could go.
…. I will end on one more ridiculous note…. We as a nation care more about the nesting grounds of Piping Plovers, Spotted Owls and Sea turtles … But what about OUR nesting grounds, the womb?
… we need to protect that…right, Mr. President? If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right? Right? ….RIGHT?!
