Here we are well within the holiday season, and what better time to discuss the hopes and dreams of the youngest of all Americans, the unborn children.
The liberals in congress seem assured of a victory in passing a complex and convoluted health care bill. It has been said that this bill’s passing will be a boon to all Americans; all Americans, that is, except those doctors and their associates who derive their livelihood from the medical profession. The bill will in time bring down insurance rates by lowering the cost of health care; by limiting, with transparency and accountability, some not necessarily necessary tests, procedures, and referrals. In the very extreme, doctors, as in the case of the Mayo Clinic, might be subjected to living on a salary. That is the very extreme case, and will not happen.
We are told that millions of dollars are being poured into congress, through lobbyists and special interest groups, urging the non-passage of some aspects of the bill. One of the decisive sections of the health care bill is the section dealing with insuring abortion. Both camps have conceded that today is not the day to debate abortion; leave the law where it stands, and deal with the funding.
In the past I had wondered how the liberals in Congress, to my thinking the "good guys," could support abortion, while the conservatives oppose it. How could Barack Obama, with two lovely daughters, support a woman’s right to abortion? Abortion is not a religious issue. Whether or not there is a God, abortion eliminates the life of a single unborn human being. Consider: a baby in the womb has it all in the palm of his hand. He is going to have a life! He will see his mother, he will see Christmases, summers, winters — he will someday "drive in the fast lane." He will work hard and vacation in Colorado, or Cancun, with his own lovely wife and children. He will witness the universe; the sun, the moon, the stars! Then his mother and father decide to abort! They take from him not just a few hours, or a few days – they take it all! Suppose you were that baby?
Liberals promote more rights for the American people and the conservatives hold to more conservative rights. So it makes sense that the liberals support a mother’s right to abortion. Maybe the liberals are a little shortsighted on this matter. Maybe they should have turned their attention to the rights of the unborn child.
