Let the celebration begin! Well at least in some circles it will. I surely do not see any reason to rejoice. Not unless one is pleased that we are quickly approaching figures not seen since Stalin or even Mao ruled and dictated. Since the Supreme Court handed down this landmark ruling 40 years past, the figure widely circulated is abortion: 55,000,000, life: 0. How many Einstein's or Newton's have we perhaps lost?

Does this make us a better people? A more compassionate society? I answer profoundly, NO! Don't get me wrong as I cherish freedom. But in some cases my freedom might cost some other individual their freedom. Not a proper balance. In the case of abortion, ones choice actually causes ones life to cease. And for what? Ones convenience?

I intend no offense to those in this most awkward predicament. I am saddened by loss of any life. I am also repulsed at the loss of life for convenience. Those figures are unknown as a statistic. We are also told that the partial birth version of abortion is estimated at 1-2%. I will spare one and all of this barbaric procedure for if one knew how it was done, one would naturally be screaming infanticide. We are better than this no?

I am not so sure friends. A powerful lobby exists and supports these procedures. It is in fact a billion dollar industry to the ever shrinking amount of physicians offering the service. The powerful lobby, at least in my opinion, has sold us a bad dose of science. We know this now as in the early days of Roe, we did not have the science and technology we have today. We now know what we are doing and it is horrifying to say the least. I am always glad Mom chose me.
