Skip to comments.Governor Palin: Forty Years Ago Today
Posted on 01/22/2013 4:24:46 PM PST by KC_Lion
Forty years ago today the Supreme Court rendered its Roe v. Wade decision. Those who believe in the sanctity of human life and long to see America embrace a culture in which innocent life is honored and protected continue to look for a day when humanity is again deemed valuable, where we cherish even those who would be born in less than ideal circumstances. Children are our most precious resource and remain the greatest symbol of hope God has given us. This is just one reason why the annual March for Life has been such a powerful aspect of the pro-life movement. This years event is Friday, January 25th, and once again a multitude of Americans will gather in Washington, D.C. to show their support for precious little ones.
Our Founding Fathers declared: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. However, since 1973, millions of children have been denied the basic right upon which all the others hinge: the right to life.
Lately, President Obama has taken to boldly highlighting children in his speeches. Using kids as the backdrop for his gun control speech, the President claimed his commitment to young ones. If theres even one life that can be saved, then weve got an obligation to try, he said. He then outlined why gutting our Second Amendment is the means by which he believes we accomplish this. Every law-abiding citizens heart is broken when children are the target of men hell-bent on committing acts of evil, and we agree that the safety and protection of innocent life is paramount.
The hypocrisy of it all, however, is that while the President publicly acknowledges the value of even one life when it advances his own political agenda, he fails to acknowledge as much when it comes to protecting the lives of children soon to be born. In that same speech, he proclaimed that when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. Well, who is more vulnerable than those who find themselves at the mercy of others to honor their existence and receive them into our world? Are thesethe truly vulnerablenot worthy of the protection of which the President speaks? Why is it that their cause is never the subject of one of his lofty addresses to the nation? Has he ever even mentioned the March for Life that takes place in his own back yard and ought to be worthy of at least a scant mention? If indeed we have an obligation to save even one life, when will we hear our President rally Americans to stand alongside women who find themselves in these less than ideal circumstances to offer the support they need, to encourage parents to choose life, and to promote the option of adoption? Instead, he has committed himself to the most liberal of abortion agendasso much so that as a Senator he couldnt even bring himself to support the Born Alive Act that would save the lives of babies ALREADY BORN and needing medical aid. Further, he believes taxpayers should betray their consciences by paying for his abortion agenda. This same President has stated he didnt want his daughters punished with a baby, and remarked that it was above my pay grade to answer a pastors question: At what point does a baby get human rights? Yet now we are to somehow believe that children are the priority in his current aggressive campaign against the Second Amendment?
The President continued to herald his support of children in yesterdays inaugural speech. Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit, to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm, he saidand I agree. Nor is our journey complete, I would add, until all our children soon to be born are also cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm. The President, of course, did not include this, as it does not line up with his worldview or his partys platform. See, his commitment to our children is selective. When children in the womb are on the chopping block, the President is silent. When he places the Second Amendment, however, on the chopping block, children are his focus. Never mind the fact that his latest proposals would not protect them from evildoers and would, in fact, leave responsible, law-abiding citizens less able to protect them as well.
Clearly, there is no shortage of hypocrisy coming out of Washington, and this is just one example. Americans can expect to be inundated with rhetoric and doublespeak for the duration of this administration. It is truly Orwellian. So it is absolutely imperative that we keep our eyes and ears open; dont allow yourselves to be sucked in or lulled to sleep. Our freedoms are being compromised, our common sense insulted, and our children exploited. We must be vigilant and engaged, and we must remain hopeful that a better day is coming.
It's "FOUr DA Childern" is meaningless when you support the Genocide of 50 Million Babies.
You don't think Soulless Ubama wouldn't want Trig Palin to euthanized because he would be a burden to THE STATE, do you?
To get it they would lynch a black, molest a woman, beat a gay, and give dope to a child. In spite of what they say.
No doubt in my mind.
Right on Sarah! They are lying hypocrites!
Right here... The Democrats heroine, Margaret Sanger:
Eugenics, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to "assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit."
Snip: Sanger believed that lighter-skinned races were superior to darker-skinned races, but would not tolerate bigotry among her staff, nor any refusal to work within interracial projects. Her contemporaries in the African-American community supported her efforts. In 1929, James H. Hubert, a black social worker and leader of New York's Urban League, asked Sanger to open a clinic in Harlem.
Have just received my first ping — and one ping only — to this list. Thank you for this successful pingage.
I’ve been checking C4P and Sarah’s FB/Tweets daily as a matter of course for a long time. Combined with this ping list, I figure I won’t miss too much that I want to know.
But I’m still curious to learn if she’s continuing with FNC this year or not.
Skip to 3:10 to learn about how the Kids were suppose to rat out their parents to the Gestapo.
That was Lebensunwertes Leben
Life unworthy of Life.
The Nazi's got the idea from American Progressives in the early part of the Century.
When the world asked for justification on the Nazi eugenics programs. They cited the Buck v. Bell case in the U.S.
I wrote my College thesis about Buck v. Bell and that was my first experience in learning how EVIL the progressives really are.
Wow!!! I really hope to live long enough to see President Palin. Please God..
Me too..My dream is to see Sarah Palin as President..she is EXACTLY what we need..I had been waiting for a new facebook post from her and what she wrote today is 100 percent right on the money. Sarah knows how to say it best without any fear
I love this woman’s heart. Right on Sarah. Right on.
Wow, what a powerful piece by Sarah. Sarah has a special heart. I was lucky enough to meet and speak with Sarah. She is truly a genuinely honest and caring person.
Hey thanks for the ping, been two days since I logged on, and first thing here we are.
But because she has lived it.
That is why she has such a special heart and speaks without fear.
Speaking the Truth will do that for you.
That is Great Sand!
If you don't mind me asking what was she like?
I have never even seen Sarah in real life.
You are so lucky!
I'm I right C.N.N.?
Too bad it has to be on such a serious topic :\
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Just want to take a moment and thank you for your enthusiasm.
OK back to ya. :)
