We get all up in arms over children we think are being abused by physical discipline and we expend money to prevent children from entering the labor force too young or being exploited by adults in perverse ways. We think it abusive if a parent withholds certain medical procedures due to religious beliefs and we make all sorts of new laws and regulations to protect children when a day care van crashes or a child is left in hot care by an inattentive parent. All these are well and good. Don't get me wrong. I am against the abuse of children and believe they deserve the full protection of the law. But George Weigel has written in the starkest terms of the most grievous abuse of children in abortion -- the modern day equivalent of child sacrifice practiced among some in ages past. The moderns will refuse and refute his comparison but he is spot on. We sacrifice the unborn to our irresponsibility, to our pleasure, for the sake our convenience, and to prevent us from having to care for them. What else would you call it but child sacrifice? Read it all here.
Abortion is the key sacrement at the alter of Liberalism. The once great Democratic party who was considered the party of the people, has turned it's back on the people to welcome into it's folds as many minority groups as it needs to create a majority. Why do they turn their backs on the unborn? "Because plain and simple they don't vote therefore they don't need them".
