Proposed abortion law attests to loose morals

    This month marks the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and keeping with that momentum, one of the first things President Barack Obama has promised to do in his first term is implement the Freedom of Choice Act.

    FOCA will supersede all existing laws regulating abortion, even state laws requiring parental consent for minors.

    Many have said this new “freedom of choice” is an epic landmark in the progress of this great nation, but it is evidence of a depraved and selfish generation that can be more concerned with the inconvenience of having children than taking responsibility for their own flesh and blood.

    We all have compassion for those who are victims of rape or incest, and rightly so, but statistics gathered by social science research group the Alan Guttmacher Institute show this is the case in less than 1 percent of abortions in the U.S.

    “Every Child a Wanted Child” is the proudly boasted Planned Parenthood slogan we so often hear, but in truth the figures speak for themselves.

    AGI research shows that America has successfully managed to “not want” 50,000,000 children.

    The topic of abortion is not about choice and privacy, and it is not in and of itself the real problem. It is merely a symptom of a greater issue at stake: the declining moral fiber of man and his attempt to put a Band-Aid on an open wound.

    I don’t want government to control me any more than the next person, but why can’t we take this freedom to choose and choose life?

    A sharp, hard line divides churches concerning the Bible’s alleged silence on the topic, but nine of the early church Fathers, from Cyprian to Tertullian, spoke out against abortion. It was declared a sin in the Apostolic Constitutions in the year 390.

    Abortion is a highly sensitive topic and there is healing for those who have gone through it.

    It is no one’s place but God’s to judge, but denying life to the “least of these” is wrong and not from God.

    As the prophet Isaiah states in 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.”

    The government will never be able to fix the hardened heart of man; only God in his great mercy can.
