I've been thinking a lot, lately about my country and the path we seem to be on. It's difficult not to become overwhelmed and depressed over the changes I see occurring daily. I try to remind myself that a large part of the bad news is generated as propaganda but not all of it is. This past week, the New York State Senate passed a law into their Constitution that allows a baby to be killed the day before it is due. It also allows a provider to end that baby's life even if it survives the abortion attempt and is born alive. The usual suspects on the Left vociferously defend the law by putting the best possible face on it. They point to the provisions about that decision being made due to birth defects but in truth, we all know that once this is commonly accepted within the abortion industry, there will be no penalties for those who exterminate a viable life for the sake of convenience for the mother. I made some statements in anger when I heard of this decision and even heard applause on the Senate floor upon its passage. I just want to make it clear that I don't hate New Yorkers as a group. I don't even hate those who voted for and cheered the passage of this abomination. I AM crushed and sad that any pace in America would pass such a law. Illinois seems to be getting in on the same action by attempting to pass laws that allow what is basically infanticide.
There are situations where a mother's life is truly at risk and as such, terminating a pregnancy, while horrible, is still preferable. The truth is that those situations are statistically VERY rare compared to the numbers of babies who are snuffed out simply because they'd be a burden on a young woman and her partner. The issue has always been polarizing and people cannot accept the goodwill that exists on each side. I believe that any legislator that votes pro-life should also stand up for helping to care for those unwanted babies. I think our nation has become so morally bankrupt that our future is sealed and it won't be pretty. When we fall, nationally, we will deserve it. We will be without excuse. If we can be so callous to the most innocent among us, what mercy do we deserve?
God's will be done, the sooner the better. We have become a habitation of every evil thing known to mankind. We ALL are responsible.
