Karol Wojtyla explained that every culture expresses certain truths about the human experience and the meaning of life.  The “Culture of Death” devalues all life and finds the meaning of life in selfishness. This man was a saint, let me tell you. The Democratic Party has embraced a different kind of March Madness. The old Democratic mantra that abortion should be safe, legal and rare has changed to anytime, anywhere and be proud of it. The concept that abortion should be “rare” implies that it wasn’t a great idea to have one in the first place. They don’t want to acknowledge that anymore. It seems to me that Democrats have taken a quick and hard shift left on the abortion issue. Let’s see if you agree as we take a walk down the road to perdition.

1-New York state recently celebrated a new law that allows “late-term” abortions by expanding the ability to abort a baby up until birth.  The law states that abortion is allowed when there is, “reasonable and good faith professional judgment based on the facts of the patient’s case”.   Sounds pretty vague with broad interpretation; I think we can all guess what a Planned Parenthood doctor’s judgment might be. What is most disturbing is that how this new law was celebrated by Governor Cuomo and other activists as such a big win for women. Liberals no longer frame the abortion issue as Life vs. Choice, but merely a women’s health issue. They don’t see how they embrace the culture of death.

2-A similar law to the one in New York is making its way through the Vermont legislature (H.57) to include language that the unborn “shall not have independent rights under law”. This will lose protection for the unborn and remove criminal and civil repercussions in situations where a woman is assaulted and loses the baby. So, a crime against an expectant mother is no different than any other. Vermont’s clear message is that the unborn do not matter and it is legislatively endorsing the culture of death.   

3-Media darling and new presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was asked about whether he supported late-term abortions and answered, “That should be a decision that the woman makes about her own body. I trust her.” If we can determine individuality by distinct DNA, then you can easily argue that the woman isn’t making a decision about her body, since the DNA of the fetus is distinct from the mother’s DNA.  Modern science proves that babies can be born premature and do very well, which makes late-term abortions even more horrible. I guess Beto isn’t asking what the fetus would decide. He just trusts the culture of death to decide. And as usual, the father of the baby is left out of any decision making process.

4-After the killings in New Zealand, Planned Parenthood weighed in with a tweet, saying, “we all deserve to live free from fear and violence.” That is, unless you are living in a mother’s womb. The fetus is literally sucked out of the mother. Sounds pretty violent to me. That is the ultimate unsafe space.

5-Pro-Choice Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon is sponsoring a bill to protect kittens used in government research.  He said, “(America) must stop killing kittens. The USDA’s decision to slaughter kittens after they are used in research is an archaic practice and horrific treatment, and we need to end it.”  He offered to “make sure that they can be adopted by loving families instead.” Senator Merkley has no problems with abortions, and doesn’t see what would happen if he substituted “babies” for “kittens” in his statement.  “Kittens before Kids” could be the senator’s next campaign slogan.

6-Abortions being “rare” is no longer an objective of the Democratic Party. The recent movement to “Shout Your Abortion” looks to “empower” women and doesn’t want anyone to feel bad about having an abortion. The implication is that if you feel bad, maybe what you did was bad.  They don’t want any of that kind of thinking. Their website slogan is “Abortion is normal. Our stories are ours to tell. This is not a debate.” Read that again. Abortion is normal and there is no debate. When did abortion become normalized and we aren’t allowed to have a different opinion?  (There goes those liberals being authoritarian again). And what are the stories that they tell? Some of the story captions are: “I did it twice and will never regret it” and “My abortion was gentle, irreverent and empowering”. Put that on your resume. Be loud and proud and shout that you are the culture of death!

7- The Culture of Death espouses that there is no universal truth and no right or wrong.  And the “death” part isn’t just physical , but also the death of the soul. You may know Karol Wojtyla under a different name:  Pope John Paul II.
