I have several primal memories from of my childhood that I recall clearly because I was so shocked at the time. One of these primal memories involved surgery. When I first discovered what would happen if they removed my appendix I was deeply dismayed. “You can’t cut into somebody!” I thought it absolutely barbaric that you would cut somebody deliberately. The basic values of “BooBoo’s are bad” collided with the reality of surgery. You could cut the cognitive dissonance with a knife! Christians have built quite a culture in the last eon or two.  America’s internal stuggle pits the sanctity  of human life  against the  grim reality of killing a human being. The miracle of birth  versus ex- post- facto birth control. We  But to kill a human being with the bottom line meaning the uncounseled, secret abortion initiated by a thriteen year old girl is OK. Don’t even have to inform the parents. Yet we question the maturity and judgement of that same child when it comes to buying beer before age 18. We know down deep that pride cometh before the fall. So are we  play-acting ( bad acting at that) God? Our values are beginning to look like a carnival mirrors grotesque reflection of a heretofore  thoughtful, life loving culture.


At one time we felt we could do nothing to interfere with God’s handiwork. We considered the pre-born as  special beings, intrinsically  deserving of special consideration and protection. It was when women looked at possibly giving their life in child-birth that the sacred nature of child-birthing is revealed. For the miracle of the child the woman risks it all. She may die while giving life. All things considered, how do you risk it all for something considered nothing more than a troublesome lump of flesh?  We can believe life is sacred or die giving birth to mediocrity? So we have that uncomfortable feeling, as a nation. that we have already crossed some inviolable line. But the abortionist would have us believe that the line did not even exist. So we are torn. Do we suffocate in the hubris of the Left? Do we demand our daughter birth the rape baby? We are hoisted on own petard. How much do we limit it? Why has it become so much more than a answer to limiting back – street abortions. Abortion has become the flag ship of the left. For some the debate is done, humans can play god with the lives of the unborn and those unborn have no value passed our selfish need to have a baby or be free of encumbrances in our recreational sex life. For some there is no cognitive dissonance. And without boundries it is all arbitrary. A woman is walking to planned parenthood to get an abortion, while en rout she is accosted and robbed. During the  robbery she is knocked to the ground and loses her baby. Now the woman who was about to kill her baby is angry at her mugger and charges for murder are filed against the criminal. He spends the rest of his life in jail and she is happy she got her abortion without having to pay for it…
