Elephant In The Room
Written by Angela Michael
There is an elephant in the room and the eyes of our
nation, communities, spiritual leaders, and legislators keep
looking the other way. Although now and then there is a rumbling
and a flash in the pan such as when the horrid doings of the
unsheathed butcher, Kermit Gosnell, come to light; for the most
part the elephant in the room...is abortion.
Abortion is a national sin. Thou shalt not murder is a
commandment. When a baby in the
womb is deliberately killed, terminated, itís murder. If
that same developing embryo is left undisturbed it will be born
and called a newborn. A baby. Itís a human being like you and
me. What gives us the right to pick and choose who is deserving of
life? Where in the Constitution
does it state that a person has the right to murder another human
being? If a baby is not a human being, then what is it? How
hauntingly true is the real estate saying, "Location
determines the property value." Just as the dark side
of our history concerning the horrible oppression of those persons
with black skin, and those with a Jewish last name; now we the
treat the ailing, the elderly, the disabled, and the innocent
unborn...as property; to be disposed of at will.
The schizophrenic right to abortion is a state by state law. Who
makes the law? The Congress. Then why do federal
judges have the right to make law and rule from the bench?
has parental rights on the books since 1995. Itís the law, but a
federal judge and attorney general
have it bottled up in the courts. It was actually enforced for
three hours in 2010 until another injunction was filed against it
and the same federal judge has
tied it up once again. Enforce the law! Who should be raising
underage minors? Those that provide a roof and foot their bills;
not the abortion mill staff. Parental rights need to be restored
and placed back in the hands of the parents of that child.
How ironic that the same Constitution founded and written with
Christian morals and principles, is constantly under attack with
attempts to dismantle it by liberal judges and lobbyists. The
Declaration of Independence firmly states that all men are
created equal and deserving of certain rights that are protected
by our Constitution: the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness. Without the right to life
we could not enjoy the other two. We must always protect and stand
up and be heard when it comes to the sanctity of all human life.
Why are Federal and state officials, that are supposed to be the
watchdogs, held to a different standard when it comes to women and
abortion? Being purposely unregulated and unchecked; this is how
deplorable and substandard butcher shops exist; and why women
continue to be victimized and hurt by those professing to be their
advocate. This should not be tolerated. No amount of money is
worth it. Enforce the law!
Abortion is not an economical issue; it's not a political issue;
it is a moral issue. Some may argue, "Well, we can't
legislate morality." Do we allow rapists to rape; thieves to
steal; Would we stand by and watch a predator snatch a 4 year old
from the streets and molest that child?
There are more back alley butchers like ďGosnellĒ out there.
Itís time to wake up and notice the elephant in the room. A puppy
mill has more protection and advocates than a baby and its
mother. Shame on us!
