  • Mark Crutcher explains why babies really are the reason for our economic collapse, but not for the same reasons Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama seem to believe…

    … The American baby-boomer is the wealthiest generation of people in the history of the world and they spent money like there was no tomorrow. In that process, they created an economy that was (a) the envy of the world and (b) completely dependent on that level of spending in order to survive.
    While doing this, however, they aborted more than 1/4 of the next generation of consumers. This guaranteed that, once the baby-boomers started reaching retirement, the spending frenzy of the last 40 years would be over. And now, that is precisely what has happened. In 2008, baby-boomers began reaching retirement age, the sales of cars and houses plummeted and that put the entire economy into a tailspin. Further, we are just at the very beginning of this phenomenon. By any realistic measure, there is a financial tsunami rolling toward the US that will make our current environment seem like “the good ole’ days.” From now until 2026, baby-boomers are going to reach retirement age at the rate of 10,000 a day! And even if we learn how to live with less consumer spending, the effect of that is going to bankrupt our social services infrastructure.
    One obvious place you can see this is in the area of Social Security….
    aging baby boomers.jpgThe designers of Social Security based it on an assumption of an ever-growing, or at least stable, workforce. They could not have foreseen that America would one day legalize the wholesale slaughter of its own children…. The result has been that, over the last 36 years, over 25% of the taxpayers needed to replace the money baby-boomers paid into the system were executed.
    To appreciate the impact of this, consider that since abortion has been legal, birth rates in the US have often been below replacement levels. In fact, if one removes immigration from the census figures, America’s population has been at best flat or, by most reliable estimates, in decline. For the Social Security system, that has been a disaster waiting to happen and the wait ended in 2008. Like nations all over the world, America is beginning to discover why the shrinking populations they wanted are a barometer of economic disaster.
    … Having said that, however, we should never reduce the abortion debate to one solely based on economics. Even if this holocaust had lined our streets in gold, it could still never be justified…. Let’s not forget that a generation that killed its own children whenever it found them inconvenient, unhealthy or expensive is now entering a stage of life when it will soon become inconvenient, unhealthy and expensive. The survivors of a generation whose fate was in our hands, will soon have our fate in theirs.

  • Father Frank Pavone recommends a call to action against the “stealth FOCA” that Congress intends to pass in the way of health care reform:

    … [P]ro-life groups warned that the FOCA provisions to expand abortion and force us to pay for it would be snuck in under another bill.
    … The health care reform bills now being finalized in Congress are going to end up mandating the federal funding of abortion without even mentioning the word — unless Congress explicitly excludes abortion. And that’s what we have to urge them to do. Otherwise, we will end up with a health care reform bill that will expand abortion more radically than anything since Roe vs. Wade.
    Abortion, of course, is not health care and has nothing to do with health care. After all, what disease does abortion cure? None. And what proven medical benefit comes from the procedure? Again, none.
    obamanationcr350.jpg… On July 17, 2007… Barack Obama said to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, “Reproductive care is essential care, basic care so it is at the center, the heart of the plan that I propose…insurers are going to have to abide by the same rules in terms of providing comprehensive care, including reproductive care…that’s going to be absolutely vital.”
    And Hillary Clinton said the following to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on April 22, 2009: “Reproductive health includes access to abortion…”
    Congressman Chris Smith pointed out in a June 26 letter to colleagues in Congress, “Without abortion explicitly excluded from any government mandated or government funded benefits package, abortion will be included. Time and again, bureaucrats and courts have decided that abortion must be included in public health programs unless the Congress explicitly provides otherwise….”
    Without such an exclusion in health care reform legislation, federal officials would be empowered to mandate coverage of abortion in virtually all health plans; massive federal subsidies would be provided for abortion on demand; an expansion of abortion providers would be required; and at least some state abortion regulations would be nullified.

  • SuzyB addresses the disheartening actions of Congress, where protecting horses is worthy of time and money but protecting defenseless, unborn human beings is not:

    House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) spoke on the floor today about the Restore Our American Mustangs Act (H.R. 1018), a $700 million welfare program for horses and burros.
    He addresses today’s vote for burros in comparison to last night’s vote to allow taxpayer funds for abortions in DC.
    From the transcript of his speech:
    Let’s get this straight. We’re debating a bill to spend millions of dollars to save wild horses, but yesterday, Democrats in the House blocked Republicans from offering an amendment to prevent federal dollars from being spent on saving unborn children.
    Oh yeah, $700 million today to save wild horses and burros – and yesterday we weren’t allowed to offer an amendment to save the lives of unborn kids. That doesn’t make sense to me, but I think most of my constituents would look up and go, well, that’s just Washington being Washington.
