The Moral Decline

    Though for the past eight years the executive branch has not exhibited it, our judicial and legislative branches all boast that they uphold morality and the laws. When a law is immoral isn't that an oxymoron? I'd like to address Catholic politicians and judges who profess to believe in God and still pass laws and decide -- that to kill unborn babies is legal and should be one of our basic freedoms, they are in the same class as the abortionist, who kill unborn babies for a living. I see NO difference.

    I pull no punches. I speak only truths - the truths of God's laws and the truths of our constitution that is supposed to assure that "all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

    For those who place political expediency above their own ethics and values and are hell-bent on remaining a pro-abort/pro-choice for the rest of their life, then no amount of words or advice, even facts or spirituality will sway them. Because of this bullheadedness, it shows they don't care. This issue won't go away and even if they try to bury it, it will be brought up again. I guarantee it...when they come before their Creator at the Final Judgment.

    Because of that, I pray they would have even a shred of common decency left in their body, a body their parents did NOT abort. What if they had? Those who are truly concerned about women's health will see that abortion greatly harms a woman physically, mentally and spiritually. It's a smoke screen when pro-aborts say they're for women's health issues. If they truly are concerned then they WILL become pro-life and automatically, PRO-HEALTH -- even if they do not believe in God.

    Even though I have delivered many babies, I'm still in awe of the miracle of life and that life's subsequent birth. It boggles my mind how a physician who has taken an oath to preserve life, can actually kill a defenseless unborn baby -- literally ripped out, many times in pieces, from the mother's womb.

    Our forefathers and foremothers, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and their followers, were all vehemently opposed to abortions. They called it “child murder.” So what happened in the interim. Why are these killings allowed to happen in this day and age? Especially, why have many women parted from their foremothers, who spearheaded the Suffrage movement? WHY, the change in mindset?

    The answer is MORALITY, or lack of it. This trend of immorality started about the time they took prayers out of schools and the Constitution was interpreted in the most liberal manner possible -- the sixties.

    This scourge of our nation, liberalism, was seeping into our society, as a deadly bacteria seeps into our drinking water. It is a contaminant and must be eradicated for our country to survive. The very word “liberal,”means to allow more of -- not strict -- not limited to or by established views. In reality -- to condone anything and everything, even evil.

    Their mantra: Whatever ones says or writes for public consumption should not be censored unless it has something to do with God or prayers. To poison a person's body, you would be jailed, but to poison their mind is just fine.

    Liberal Democrats refer to religious people as the religious right, or the religious fanatic. If Democrats had their way, the government would be in complete charge of our lives. We defeated Russia in the “cold war,” but now, we are fastly becoming the old USSR, (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) where the religious were persecuted and the killing of unborn babies was a way of life.

    Slowly but surely, satan is taking over the Democratic party. The proof is in everything they stand for: The killing of unborn babies, even while they're being born -- homosexuality; the bashing of Catholics and all Christians; the filth in the movies and on TV evidenced by their biggest financial contributors -- Hollywood. How can satan NOT love these people? They're satisfying his every wish.

    I remember when Hollywood had strict rules for movies. It was monitored by the Hayes Office. One of those rules was -- if there was a bedroom scene, one of the parties had to have one foot on the floor at all times. How times have changed.

    Filthy books were also censored, but again, as this deadly liberal virus seeped into the minds of our judges, it was decided that immorality was superior to censorship. They rationalized that even if the divorce rate, sex out of wedlock, adultery and rape all skyrocketed as a result of influences from pornographic sources -- it was still better than censorship. Family values had to take a back seat to liberalism and the freedom of expression.

    Even now, the liberal Democrats want the perverted and deadly life style of homosexuality to be taught to our children in the public schools and, believe it or not, it IS being taught. There is no law against satanism and condoms can be passed out, but God -- they want to kick out.

    Liberals will not be satisfied until every child is exposed to filth at the earliest possible age. They will not be satisfied until every unborn child can be legally killed right up to term.

    So, there you have it -- the moral factor -- the etiology for the killing of unborn babies. What was disgusting to even our parents and grandparents doesn't now elicit even a raised eyebrow. How could our society sink so low? How can any stretch of human thinking come to the conclusion that "Thou Shalt Not Kill" does not include the killing of unborn babies? They are human and they are alive -- thus human beings.

    If someone were to destroy the Mona Lisa, the world would be up in arms about it. Where is their outrage, when a baby is butchered inside its mother's womb? Can there be any comparison between the most famous paintings in the world and God's most magnificent creation -- human life? How did our values get so twisted?

    There used to be a time when the safest place to be was in the mother's womb. She would protect her unborn baby with her life. Now, since Roe Vs Wade in 1973 when abortions were made legal, it's the most dangerous place on the face of the earth. One-third of all babies are now killed. We should hang our heads in shame. If the unborn baby is lucky to have a loving mother he/she will live. If not, the baby is killed in a horrible manner.

    Nowadays, it's the luck of the draw, that will determine if you live or die. What a sad commentary on our public morals. Life and death decisions should be in the hands of God, our Creator, and not at the whim of the baby's mother. How low we have fallen!
