Saw a posting over on Towards A Just Society about yours truly. A lot of it is just regurgitating what I have posted on my bio page. (Note to author – I am really not concerned about political success. Only being faithful to the truth. Hard concept to grasp. But try anyway.) Anyhow, I got a little kick over a couple of comments:
To both sides, I will just put out this question: What do you hope to achieve? Will winning a facebook contest reverse abortion laws in Canada?
Well, no, it won’t. But it sure has stirred up what the poor choicers and the media have been very successful at doing for many years in Canada and that’s shutting down the debate on this issue, even though the polls show that Canada is more pro-life than it is pro-abort. 54% want no abortion after three months. 64% after six months. 64% of the population therefore do not agree with the law in Canada.
How many times have we heard “The abortion debate is closed” in this country? Just who is doing the closing here anyway? Let me guess. The Media, 84 year old Henry Morgentaller, Judy Rebick and the Angry, Used Women Bunch.
Every pseudo-reporter in this country has sung this mantra too many times to count. Well, the truth of the matter is that, no, this debate is not over. In fact, we’ve never really had it in earnest and that is what this contest has ignited. The debate is hardly going to end when the contest is over. Whether we end up winning or not is beyond the point.
The point is that we are now the cat’s meow.
When the “contest” is over, the right thing for CBC to do would be to avoid giving recognition to either side of the abortion topic… it’s been far too compromised to be meaningful.
See? Let’s all just take a deep breath and back away from the topic. Careful now. It can be wery wery danyawus.
In reading the discussion threads and comments like this, it is very clear to me that the poor choicers are wetting themselves so much that last week Pampers stock price went through the roof.
You see, we don’t need to win this contest. All we have to do is start the debate and the discussion. Victory will soon follow. As the good book says,
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. – John 2:20-21
A just society respects the rights of unborn children, and rejects the pain and torture they go through during the most heinous and cruel acts perpetrated against them.
A just society recognizes that abortion is not a liberation for women but an enslavement of women by wicked men who want a quick lay with no sacrifice and no responsibility.
A just society does not place one segment of humanity against another. It does not separate or commodify mothers and their babies.
A just society rejects the exploitation of women and rejects the perverse idea that a baby’s death is a human right.
A just society respects human life.
