“Aborting” Babies Will Soon Lead To “Aborting” Old People

“Aborting” Babies Will Soon Lead To “Aborting” Old People

Why would we fail to see the “slippery slope” that is on our horizon…much like an approaching tsunami?

Can we understand that killing babies for convenience and cost-effectiveness is in the process of becoming killing old people for convenience and cost-effectiveness?

But the destructive force that is approaching like a juggernaut is not a tsunami, it is Obamacare. Socialized medicine, in the pathetic form of Obamacare, will withhold life-saving medical interventions from those who are no longer “useful”, “economically viable” citizens.

With Obamacare,  both babies and the aged will be vulnerable to State-sanctioned “termination of development”.

Making Problems Worse

November 23, 2009

Making Problems Worse

Fixing what ails this nation is not always a matter of correcting the problems that exist. It also entails not making these problems worse through the imposition of harmful new cultural redesigns.

The following article by Star Parker is an example of exactly the kind of progressive politically based cultural redesign that will be another nail in America’s coffin.

The following is Star Williams’ article in it entirety:

Sodom In The Nation’s Capital

At a time when our country is sick, it shouldn’t surprise that one our sickest places is our nation’s capital.

The poverty rate of Washington, DC, almost 20 percent, is one of the highest in the nation. Its child poverty rate is the nation’s highest..

 DC’s public school system, with a graduation rate of less than 50 percent, is one of the worst in the country.

According to DC’s HIV/AIDS office, three percent of the local population has HIV or AIDS. The Administrator of this office notes that this HIV/AIDS incidence is “…higher than West Africa…on par with Uganda and some parts of Kenya.” And the principal way that HIV is transmitted continues to be through male homosexual activity.

 Amidst this dismal picture, the DC City Council, perhaps on the theory that serving up another glass of wine is the way to help a drunk, is scheduled to vote on December 1 to legalize same sex marriage in America’s capital city.

 Looking at realities in Washington, DC should make clear why George Washington said “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”

 But the America that our first president had in mind was very different from the vision of our DC government officials.

George Washington’s America was one in which the point of freedom is to allow Man to rise to what he can become. To do this, the greatest challenge he faces is conquering himself. To rise above his baser instincts, to rise above the many temptations that lead him astray. And to achieve this end, as Washington said, “religion and morality are indispensably supports.”

In left-wing America, of which the DC government is a poster child, freedom means to indulge every instinct that the tradition and religion of George Washington would have us overcome.

Where does it lead? Well, look at DC.

It is tempting to look at DC’s realities and just call this a black thing. And by and large it is. 

DC is largely black — almost 60 percent. Its poverty is black poverty. Its public school system serves mostly black children. And its AIDS crisis is mostly among blacks.

But the pathologies that strike the weakest parts of our population most brutally are nonetheless pathologies of the nation.

 The Brookings Institution is one of our oldest policy institutes and certainly no bastion of conservatism. But in a recently published volume, Brookings scholars Ron Haskins and Isabel Sawhill point out the centrality of the traditional family to the American dream of opportunity and the centrality of family breakdown to poverty.

Reporting data showing the general breakdown of the traditional American family, they say, “Some claim that anyone who is concerned about these trends is simply out of touch with modern culture; we respond that, if that be the case, then, “modern culture is out of touch with the needs of children.”

 The Catholic Archdiocese of DC announced that legalization of same sex marriage would make it impossible to continue its relationship with the DC government and require termination of the social services it provides to some 68,000 of the city’s poor — including about one third of its homeless. The reaction of DC council member David Catania was essentially “so what.” According to him, “their services are not indispensable.”

 Is Catania out of touch with the needs of DC’s poor?

 No. He just has different priorities. More important to him, and more important to DC’s left wing city council, is advancing moral relativism and the indulgences it feeds.

 This is more important to them than feeding the poor or recognizing the values that would get them out of poverty.

 It should concern every American as we watch our nation’s capital city transform officially into Sodom.

A socioculture that sacrifices its children’s welfare to the trendy gratifications of its adults constructs a path to its own decline.
