It's the Abortions, Stupid!

As this cartoon featuring Umbert's super smart buddy Elwood illustrates, the current economic crisis is deeply rooted in another American crisis-the loss of nearly fifty million Americans in the past 40 years. Think about it. If the fifty million people we allowed to be legally aborted were alive today what impact would they have had on our economy? Multiply all of the products and services that a person typically uses in their lifetime by fifty million and we are talking about trillions of dollars in added GDP. Then there's the gaping hole in the federal treasury that likely would not exist if the added tax dollars of fifty million workers was flowing into Washington, not to mention the balance that would have been restored to the ratio of workers to retirees, thus keeping Social Security and Medicare solvent. And how's this for irony? The national teachers unions support abortion, guaranteeing the death of over one million future pupils per year! If class sizes are an average of 27 students, that's over half a million teachers over a twelve year period who won't be hired to preside over all those empty desks.Class dismissed!

Children, An Endangered Species

If the recent media circus over the Casey Anthony trial demonstrated anything, it is how low on the totem pole children are in this country. Who is going to pay for that child's murder? No one! This woman gets off scot-free and is probably headed for a small fortune in book deals and movie rights. But this isn't unusual, it is typical. Children are murdered every day in this country and no one seeks justice on their behalf because their murder is considered somebody else's constitutional right. Has abortion made us so desensitized to the death of children that we are going to start thinking of the Caylee Anthony's of the world as simply late-term abortions? Dr. Kermit Gosnell is under indictment for the murder of several infants whom he killed AFTER they were extracted from their mother's wombs in attempted abortions. Yet so called pro-choice groups consider what this man did at his West Philadelphia clinic health care for women.
I feel sorry for children today. Not only are they no longer safe in their mother's wombs, they are no longer safe when they exit the womb. Child abuse today is rampant and children are being forced to grow up too fast in a pop media culture which imposes a sexually charged template on adolescence. And the perpetrators of violence and sexual abuse against children are treated like victims themselves by a society too weak to impose   judgment and enforce its laws. It's a toss up whether Umbert is better off staying in the womb for another ten years or taking his chances on the outside.
