Lately I have been reading and hearing non-stop, on the 'Net and on the radio, all about President Obama & all that he has done to un-do the work of the pro-life movement here in America, and abroad. It's a pity that our once-illustrious nation, here under God *in Whom we trust*, is now the world's leader in pro-abortion-peddling and anti-life activities. Thanks to big-time promoters like Planned Parenthood, we are fast becoming the leaders in what I call "death peddling."
You know, a long time ago there was a Man Who came to us as a naked Babe in a cave, poor, hungry, innocent of all that evil would inflict ~ born to a Mother Who, Herself, was as innocent as He was, Who never wanted anything but to live Her life, to pray, to act in all charity and obedience to the will of God. And as He grew up, He blossomed into a Man of many miraculous works. To be anything else would have gone completely against all that He was ~ and is.
Today, as we all know, that Man, the Son of God Himself, looks down upon us with all love and mercy. Even to those who would promote abortion! "Pray for your enemies, if you expect Me to stand for you before My Father, Who is in Heaven."
He is warning us, people...
And when I pray my daily Rosary, I can't help but think to myself about all those who don't agree with me ~ what the Church teaches ~ that abortion is MURDER. That it is WRONG to push our anti-life agenda on others.
"Oh, you know, Jenn, it's the way of the world these days; you can't do anything to change it!" or "He's just one man, the Congress isn't going to let him do anything, not really! What can one man do?!"
Hello?? I beg to differ here...
Yesterday, my husband Michael showed me a YouTube video of the Morton Downey program, taped years ago when Patrick Buchanan was running for President, and a woman was berating Mr. Buchanan for his pro-life views. She scolded him that he just didn't "get it" that there were women dying who had to get illegal abortions instead of opting to have their babies. That her own mother was one such "victim" who had nearly died trying to kill her unborn child years ago, and that if abortion was not kept legal there would be many more fatalities! (Such twisted logic I have rarely heard.) Mr. Buchanan told her that in every abortion a human being dies. In EVERY ABORTION, A HUMAN BEING DIES.
Imagine that?!? Has anyone ever realized that before? In this day and age, with every convenience, we are still arguing a basic Truth. It never ceases to amaze me, and I am not alone.
What does He think, as He watches over us? Does He think to Himself, "My, these children of mine are so ignorant, even after all that I have been through for them?! After all that I taught them?! After all that has happened, they are so stubborn?!"
Well, I'll tell you one thing: I do NOT want to be here when it finally comes to the end. When the results of our selfishness, our ignorance and our greed finally hit the fan, God grant that I am long gone.
I wish to be safely in the bosom of Abraham when that day comes...
