Until my first birthday, In the land of the free and the home of the brave. I am a non-entity entitled to no rights or privileges of citizenship because. It is only if I die on your side of the womb does anyone feel any outrage at my often capricious death, as the Newtown and Columbine massacres and Gosnell Murder trial demonstrates. On a daily basis, I am often dismembered in the womb and my remains incinerated in facilities collocated with Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the nation making the operators of Auswitz, Dachau, and Treblinka look like amateurs
The founders of our nation created our Nation on the premise that All men are created equal and entitled to the pursuit of life liberty and happiness. They didn’t add a caveat that All men are created equal, “IF BORN”, and then entitled to the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. However, they also probably didn’t envision a nation that would kill their children in the womb or try to eviscerate God from the public square. Until my first birthday, I can neither give love nor receive it. As political ideologues through euphemisms such as reproductive choice try to reduce me to no greater consequence than that of a bowel movement with plan B for teens, neglecting the fact that the reason I exist at all is the byproduct of a willful choice borne of lust or love. God gave us the power to create life but apparently not the wisdom to cherish it. If allowed the opportunity to fulfill my potential I might be the one to find a cure to cancer or lead our country to prosperity but unfortunately I can be extinguished without recourse, thought or consideration to what I might contribute to the fabric of society or our nation, A convicted murderer would be given more consideration before being put to death, yet it seems my only crime is being inconvenient to the holder of my womb. If inconvenience is a crime punishable by death I would venture that many of our politicians might fear for their own lives as well. While my prospective parents may feel, no tenderness for me. I can look to the Love of GOD without regard to the pretenders outside my womb who would kill me to protect a soulless lifestyle that my presence might cramp. What is morality? It is knowing the difference between right and wrong and loving God enough to do the right thing regardless of the personal cost.
4 Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
George Washington, our first and one of our most distinguished presidents said in his farewell address to the nation
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?
John3: 1-2 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him because we shall see him as he is.
