America continues its march toward its own destruction.
On January 22, 2019, Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the “Reproductive Health Act” – upon signing the bill, he stated:
“With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body.”
No, Governor Cuomo, the only clear message you’re sending is that New York legislators, and you, are completely bankrupt of morality. You’ve now joined the infamous club of people who commit crimes against humanity.
Only a few days previous to the 46th Anniversary of Roe v Wade, I had written this article, “Silent Scream, Genocide of the Unborn” – not realizing how prophetic it was. Indeed, we’ve known this country has been moving forward in its zealousness to kill the unborn at will, without restraint, without examination of conscience, without a second thought – to cut up, suck out, or as now in New York State, to terminate by lethal injection. Logic and irony fail to make headway in rabid pro-abortionists’ thinking – New York state does not allow the death penalty, but have now set in motion the means for which babies up to and including the moment of birth can be killed under the guise of a “woman’s right to control their own body.”
Lethal injection is the injection of toxic, poisonous chemicals into the human body, with the intent to cause death, cessation of life. In capital punishment cases where lethal injection is used, the person is sedated, and basically put to sleep, and they don’t wake up. Perhaps a few minutes of struggle for breath, then they’re gone.
In the new law in New York State, they’re going to use a lethal injection poison that kills the baby over 24, even as long as 48 hours, and then the woman will deliver a dead baby. A baby who was tortured in a barbaric manner before it could even draw its first breath of life. It lasts longer than the partial-birth abortion or the born alive abortions.
How cruel and unusual a punishment is that? How barbaric, that an innocent life, who has never once had the opportunity for “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness” is tortured, all because it is inconvenient.
In 1983, on the Tenth Anniversary of Roe v Wade, President Ronald Reagan wrote an essay, “Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation.” Read it, it’s an extraordinary and profound statement about what 10 years of Roe v Wade had caused since that infamous ruling. Reagan makes several important points, including the most important one, not only about “when does life begin” but “what value does a human life” have.
At the time of Reagan’s essay, in the 10 year period since the Supreme Court allowed abortion, (by then it had been expanded into the 3rd trimester) the country had already killed 15 million of its babies. In the 46 years since Roe v Wade, America has killed 61 million of her unborn. President Reagan would be shocked that we had not undone Roe v Wade.
What drives modern man, who has advanced medical science at its fingertips to save lives, to cure diseases, to promote health, to develop medicines that improve billions of human beings’ lives, to turn around and deliberately murder the most vulnerable, the most innocent of all of God’s creatures, an unborn child?
What value is a human life?
The 20th century saw two world wars, numerous undeclared armed conflicts, and the death of millions ordered by dictators, communist and fascist. The very idea of deliberately killing the unwanted child or inconvenient child tracks into the same mindset that drove Nazi Germany to wantonly kill any undesirables in their society. By the time the Third Reich fell, 6 million Jews and 5 million “others” had been intentionally murdered in concentration camps, in ghettos, and in any ditch that would take a few more bodies. Wanton murder.
Adolph Hitler and his Nazi death machine deliberately killed 11 million souls – we’ve studied the stories of the horror and atrocities of WWII in school. Yet, the result of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v Wade, America alone has killed 61 million human beings. Where is the outrage? Where is our humanity?
Gov. Cuomo and the rabid abortion supporters cheered when he signed the bill. He ordered the World Trade Center tower to be lit up pink. Pink for womens’ right to kill their unborn. How about red for the blood being shed by the innocent victims?
Ronald Reagan said the question of conscience for the Nation was what value was a human life? In his essay, he references a tragic story, one that probably few of our time know about. It was the starvation death of a Down’s Syndrome baby, the judge ruled that a reasonable life saving procedure, opening up the esophagus, was not to be allowed as the child’s life had no meaning. Indiana’s State Supreme Court agreed. People are likely horrified reading about this today, because no longer would that ever be allowed, but in the not that distant past, 1982, this country allowed a Down’s Syndrome Baby to starve to death – all because his life was not considered worthwhile.
The value of life. The slippery slope people feared would come the day the Supreme Court ruled a woman could kill her unborn child has indeed come to pass. A slope that went from “safe, legal, and rare” to abortion on demand, up to and including the day of delivery. In, “Silent Scream, the Genocide of the Unborn” – The movie, “Gosnell” is discussed. The full title of that movie: “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” – but now with new York’s open-ended abortion law, Gosnell wouldn’t even be found guilty of the deaths he caused when he killed babies born alive.
The slippery slope from Roe v Wade’s ruling has taken us from aborting a “clump of cells” to dismembering a fully intact, alive human body. Dismembering or now injecting poisons which are toxic to the nervous system. Both methods causing horrific pain-filled deaths. Dr. Joseph Mengele would be applauding. Yes, the Nazi physician who carried out inhuman experiments on infants and children during WWII.
America, or at least parts of country, has come to accept full-blown infanticide. Killing perfectly viable children. We’ve actually entered the next phase where killing a child after birth is going to happen. It’s already talked about. In 2012, “ethicists” Alberto and Francesca Giubilini and Minerva introduced the idea of after-birth abortion. It’s real, there are people who advocate that a child should be killed if it has no value to society or if the parents do not want it. If you think this couldn’t happen, it is happening: a Democrat Delegate in Virginia, Kathy Tran introduced legislation that not only would repeal all abortion restrictions in that state, but allow a last minute abortion during delivery.
America is no longer at a precipice. It has fallen over the cliff. We are engaged in willful infanticide. Rabid abortionists hide behind fancy phrases like what Governor Cuomo used, …”having the right to control their own body.” “Pro-choice” sounds much more acceptable than Pro-abortion. Daughn24/7 wrote about the “War of Words. The denial of committing murder by the pro-abortionists is their taking command of the language regarding their dirty deeds. They talk about women’s health, not dead babies. That’s called massaging language and message. The majority of the public, who doesn’t pay that much attention, are fooled.
There are some statistics people should be aware of:
1% rape or incest
6% health issue for mom/baby
93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (unwanted/inconvenient)
Then there is this:
New York State has declared war on the unborn; New Mexico and Vermont are about to follow in New York’s footsteps.
For years, I have called abortion the genocide of the unborn, a Holocaust of the Innocents. A society that has open disregard for the sanctity of life, loses its humanity. A society which has no problem killing viable, innocent babies moves closer to demanding that it be allowed to kill other undesirables or other individuals who are perceived to not have value, or less value. The disabled and the elderly are two more vulnerable groups. It’s called euthanasia.
The gleeful abortion ghouls of New York state, who applauded and cheered upon taking the life of a child, demonstrates how easy it is to slide into a state of moral bankruptcy, a life without a moral compass. In this, we have lost our humanity, and our right to claim any kind of moral superiority. Pro-abortionists of the 21st century are not any different than the genocidal perpetrators found in the annals of history.
Perhaps this radical move by New York state will shock the conscience of this nation to reassess its values and move to protect Life.
The Supreme Court should revisit Roe v Wade. After all, we now have proof “safe, legal, and rare” was a misnomer. America has already murdered 61 million of its children, that’s evidence of a wrongly, and badly decided ruling. I’m certain that nowhere in the Constitution was infanticide written as a “right.”
Edit update: I wanted to include this:
January 28, 2019 at 20:59
For every child who lives in the womb:
that God might send an angel to guard and protect
the innocent and defenseless;
We pray to the Lord:
For the children who have died from abortion in our nation,
and for their mothers and fathers:
for mercy, peace and the loving embrace of Christ;
We pray to the Lord:
