#1 cause of abuse against women and children: abortion

26 11 2008

Garth George writes an excellent piece in the New Zealand Herald about the causes of violence in our society against women and children.

We have brought it on ourselves. We have bowed to the blandishments of liberalism, immorality, materialism and hedonism and have set aside most of the moral and legal strictures which for centuries formed the mortar which held societies together and kept them from self-destruction.

For nearly 50 years, we have presided over the gradual unravelling of the fabric of our nation through the breakdown of the traditional family unit upon which community cohesion has always depended.

I have said it before and I say it again: The number one cause of abuse against women and children is abortion.

Listen to the late Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Never mind that she was a Catholic nun; her views are held by scores of thousands of New Zealanders, and their logic is inescapable.

“… the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion,” she said, “because it is a war against the child – a direct killing of the innocent child – murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?

“… The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships.

“It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts – a child – as a competitor, an intrusion and an inconvenience. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want … It is a very great poverty to decide that a child must die that you might live as you wish.”

The Audacity of Obama–Smooching Babies

25 06 2008

Leading Pro-Life blogger Jill Stanek posts a link to a video clip of Senator Obama, who is fiercely pro-abortion, smooching the kiddies. How ironic–no, chilling–that the man who wouldn’t have minded if these same children would have been killed just a year or so ago. What a hypocrite. In Jill’s words:

And the idiotic parents of these infants? Obama plants their children with the Kiss of Death, don’t they understand? SendBarackYourBaby.com? What, to kill the baby?

And CNN. How could anyone put a fluff piece together like this and ignore Obama’s extreme positions on abortion? Only someone like-minded who wants to cover for Obama and make him look the opposite of what he is. And was anyone else bothered by the way the reporter threw the baby in the box?
