Culture of Death in America
What has our country come to when one of the leading presidential candidates in the United States a) votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act and b)declares that he wouldn't want his daughter(s) "punished with a baby" if they "made a mistake". Wow. Babies are not "punishment" for a "mistake". They are logical consequences for a choice made (in most cases) and they are wanted by many, many couples whose hearts are aching for children, but they are not a "punishment" to be KILLED AFTER BIRTH by the very doctors we go to desperate to save our lives.
Where are we as a civilization if we are accepting, almost without question, the very values that Hitler's Germany stood for? By sugar coating our culture of death in sweet sounding euphemisms, we are copying one of the things that Nazi Germany did best--propaganda--"spin"--to make its goal of mass murder acceptable to society.
Anyone who can vote with a straight face against a law that declares a child a person with rights, AFTER IT IS BORN, and sees innocent children as "punishments" for "mistakes" does not deserve to be President of the United States.
Watch out, America. The leaders we have are the leaders we vote for.
