The war on life

February 11, 2012

[26th J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense on Broad View, KBZZ 1270 AM Reno.]

For weeks now, the biggest issue in the news has been the Obama administration’s birth control mandate. The mandate requires all Americans to purchase health insurance that provides birth control, abortifacients, and sterilizations. Catholics, Orthodox Christians, many Protestants, and even some non-Christians are furious. Suddenly, for the first time in our history, religious beliefs can make you a criminal, and the Catholics who supported and voted for Obama in 2008 feel betrayed.

That’s the surface story, but there’s a deeper story that gets ignored. Maybe you noticed something else: in the middle of the debate about the birth control mandate there was another big stink, this one about a breast cancer charity suspending its grants to Planned Parenthood. Liberals went berserk. They assumed the decision was about abortions, and they rolled out the big guns. Liberal philanthropists threatened to stop donating to the breast cancer charity, liberal politicians threatened congressional investigations, and Mayor Bloomberg in New York quickly gave Planned Parenthood $250,000.

The message was simple: abortions are more important than fighting breast cancer.

The deeper story here is the war against life that permeates liberal political philosophy. It’s uncanny how often and how consistently the left stakes out and defends anti-life positions, and it’s frightening to what extremes they will go in defending those positions. Obama is on record defending the killing of babies who survived abortions. We’re talking about human babies that lay breathing, alive, and fighting for survival, but according to then-State Senator Obama, if the intent was to abort, the medical staff should be allowed to kill them.

So how can we be surprised that he orders Catholics to buy birth control?

This war on life goes way beyond abortion. Peel back the layers of almost any political issue and you will expose the liberal hatred for life, especially human life. The Global Warming scam, for instance, is disintegrating under a barrage of contrary evidence, but the United States government, dominated by liberal bureaucrats, is still making policy based on the idea that it’s real. And what is their target? Carbon. Think about that. They want to limit it, tax it, penalize it, and to every extent possible eliminate it. Carbon, in case you didn’t know, is what you and I are made of. Get past the water, and we’re 72% carbon. We’re made of it, we eat it, we exhale it... and liberals have gone to war against it. See what I mean by “uncanny?”

Michelle Obama has been waging a little war of her own, against fat, carbohydrates, and salt in our diet. There are six essential nutrients that your body requires to stay alive, and she’s trying to limit three of them. She wants kids to eat fruits and vegetables, which are good sources of fiber but not classified as essential nutrients. It’s uncanny.

I’m not done. Maybe you followed the controversy in California where environmental whackos shut off the water to the San Joaquin Valley because they thought maybe the delta smelt needed it. That was in 2007, and the effect was devastating, turning much of what used to be the most fertile farmland in the world into a desert. The San Joaquin Valley was producing 25% of the nation’s food before they shut the water off. At the same time, liberals are turning more and more of our corn crop into fuel for cars instead of food for people. 40% of our corn is now used to make ethanol, causing food prices to rise all over the world... and when food prices rise, the poorest people starve.

You can’t get more anti-life than destroying the food supply, right?

I’m still not done. If you’re a Democrat you’re fuming right now, but take a deeper look at the issues dividing our nation. Peel the onion. The whole notion of bigger government is an attack on life the way God intended it to be lived. Every new law that promotes safety by restricting freedom, or extends bureaucratic control over living human beings, or makes it easier to prevent and kill human life, that’s another battle lost.

And if we keep losing battles, eventually we’ll lose the war.

That's... today’s dose of common sense..

"So God created man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." – Genesis 1:27-28

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him." – Revelation 6:8

It didn't take long for the Obama administration to add credence to the accusation that liberals are anti-life.

On February 22, Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, announced that he will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prevents the federal government from recognizing gay marriages. DOMA is the law, and Eric Holder is the top law enforcement officer, but he's simply going to ignore it.

On March 1, Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, defending Obama's contraception mandate before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, stated that preventing human beings from being born will save money... enough money to pay for the mandated birth control. In other words, each human life is a liability, not an asset, and she knows how to reduce our liabilities. So stop worrying about your silly religious beliefs, America!

On March 4, the Washington Times reported that Obama's 2013 budget eliminates funding for the Embryo Adoption Awareness Campaign which promotes the adoption of frozen embryos, 600,000 of which sit in limbo around the United States. The program costs $1.9 million each year, while Plannned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country, gets $1 million per day from the federal government.

Barack Hussein Obama is the most anti-life politician in the history of this country. He's practically a ghoul, having opposed in March of 2003 an Illinois state bill to outlaw infanticide which was identical to the 2002 federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that passed the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent. That's right, unanimous consent. Good thing Obama wasn't a member of the U.S. Senate yet.

February 13, 2012 - Why is it always Obama's fault with you people? As if abortion didn't exist before Obama became president! - W.P., Maryland

February 13, 2012 - We need to look beneath the cover - are we seeing the clandestine plan that is part of the Muslim take-over of the world - we see their efforts at work all over Europe. To weaken us through our own agendas, such as mass abortion, and economic collapse, is certainly something their evil leader would consider as part of their holy jihad. And there is considerable evidence to reveal the influence of the Muslim hypocrisy on the "anointed" one sitting on the White House "throne." - Dennis R., Pittsburgh

February 12, 2012 - Whether or not he consciously intends to do so, Obama is serving the death cults. He's not the first high-ranking politician to undertake to complete their agenda... but from the course he's following, he might intend to be the last. - Francis W. Porretto, Connecticut
