Hi David -- Sorry to leave an off-topic comment here, but I don't think I have an e-mail address for you. You can feel free to delete it once you've seen it.I thought you might be interested in one of my blog posts; it's a critical review of liberal author Bill Press's How the Republicans Stole Christmas, especially his chapter in support of abortion rights. It's lengthy but I thought you might be interested. God bless!
I just found your blog through a link of a link of a link... I'm a Catholic Conservative Republican Army wife. I'm going to have to blogroll you if you don't mind!The tide is turning against abortion in America. Last week South Dakota virtually outlawed all abortions, except for when the life of the mother is in grave danger. Now Mississippi is following suit. I understand Missouri is now conidering the same legislation. It truly feels like a miracle!The states are attempting to force a revisitation of Roe V. Wade to the Supreme Court, where it will likely be overturned. YES! The power to make such laws as legalized abortion will then return to the states where it should have been all along. I only hope most states will ban most abortions.
The best thing we can do in this country to help reduce abortion is to make the culture of life about promoting adoption, abstinence, birth control and really, to improve the conditions in our society that leads to abortion (such as poverty, low education, values). Problem is doing this requires a lot of effort... as individuals, as a society, as a government. How many times have you taken in to your home a recently pregnant unwed mother and supported her during her pregnancy and delivery so she wouldn't have an abortion? How many times have you volunteered for the big sister program, volunteered to tutor, mentored young men and become a role model to them? There are many other things each of us can personally do to reduce the number of abortions. Most people just like to complain and demand the government take some sort of token action instead of actually doing anything themselves. I know we feel empowered when we go to vote, but voting is the ABSOLUTE LEAST people can do. But it makes us feel good about ourselves. "I voted for a candidate who supports my values so I have done my part to make this world a better place."Praying for the overturn of Roe vs. Wade is not the only solution, although it takes little effort. Instead of simply hoping for the day to come one day, get off your butts and do something positive to impact the lives of women who end up in such desperate circumstances that they would consider such a horrible solution. SImply making it illegal doesn't take away the underlying causes... there are many strategies, but they require actually DOING SOMETHING, as opposed to praying and hoping that some simple men in robes will make the right decision.
I like this theory, like all other repbulican concepts as of recently - we can pretend its true so it is true. Just like how the war in Iraq is a success story, or how we are passing debt to our children, or how we havent sold out our original christian values for some neoconsumer christian values.
