The sanctity of human life from the moment of conception throughout all of life up to and including a natural death is the only foundation our society will ever be able to stand upon if we hope to flourish as a truly free people. Its quite obvious our foundation is crumbling. To repair it, we must go back to square one and correct our ideas about sex. Unless we give sexual intercourse its due reverence, well never give human life its due reverence. The two can never be separated, as Pope Paul VI tried to tell the world in his prophetic encyclical, Humanae Vitae. If we dont regard all life as sacred and thus the creative act of sexthen we will always find ways to rationalize and justify the murder of a child as a right.
I am saying that the decision to legalize the killing of our preborn children cemented a poisonous shift in our mentality, and that poison has corroded every aspect of our society, especially our treatment of sex. We replaced responsibility with rights and its been a downhill race toward insatiable debauchery ever since.
One criticism I hear often from people is that I and other Pro-Life folks ignore the real cause of abortions: unexpected/unwanted pregnancies. What needs to be addressed, they say, is the tragedy of unexpected and unwanted pregnancies. Do you see what I mean? Pregnancy is a tragedy not a miracle of life. Theres that poisonous shift in our thinking. The creation of a new human being is a tragedy if we didnt expect it or want it. The tragedy isnt the new life; its our self-centered, warped perspective.
