Personhood For Embryos Down In Mississippi
Personhood For Embryos Down In Mississippi…
There are valiant folks out there fighting on behalf of the unborn and forging legislation to assist the unborn in this herculean battle between those who think life starts at conception and those who hold a contrary position. To that end, on the ballot down in Mississippi is a proposed law to afford an Embryo ‘Personhood’; if this law were to pass it would run afoul of Roe v. Wade, the seminal Constitutional case, which officially, in my opinion, sanctioned state sponsored murder. Roe is so ingrained in our collective psyche that many of us have become accustomed to murdering babies and, that is why we are so nonchalant and cavalier about the ongoing slaughter of the unborn. I cannot tell you how annoying it is to me about the emphasis we place on ‘animal rights’ and are church-mouse quiet about the everyday killing of babies, via abortions.
Let us be honest, there are many of who would shed and have shed many a tear over the cruelty of animals, and yet are comfortably numb about the innocent bloodletting that is the abortion machines. As matter of fact, abortion is relegated to the concept of ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ unless someone is showing the gruesome aftermath of the killing procedures. Of course, those who dare show the bloodied images of the world’s greatest holocaust are looked upon as the Hitlers. In a similar strain of debate, there is a lady on The View, who by her own admission, said that she had over seven abortions - but you should have heard that same lady outrage over the Michael Vick cruelty to animal case.
I for one am ecstatic that the State of Mississippi is treating the Embryo as a person; and yes, it will be a formidable fight because the murder of babies is speciously wrapped up in Feminism. I do not care about whom God or nature chose to carry the human young, you kill it, it is murder! From a Constitutional point of view, this is a fight again about State’s Rights under the concept known as Federalism… codified in our Tenth Amendment. In studying Roe, the decision speaks about viability (24 weeks), but for the Traditional Christian this demarcation line holds no sway. Life does not suddenly evolve over the gestation period out of nothing (globs of tissue); it has always been alive, so much so that the irony is that we need those same globs of tissue for Stem Cell research. With the pending life-saving legislation in Mississippi, I am hoping that many babies escape the slaughter because I will reiterate again that those of us who engage in abortion have nothing on the greatest of the earth’s murderers (Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao).
Permit me to paraphrase an ad I once saw on TV: there was once an interracial couple, in an era, like now, when such unions were frown upon, who sired a child; and all through their recorded marital turmoil, brought a boy baby into the world. This baby grew up to be President Obama, the historical first African American President. I wonder how many babies of worth. meaning all of them, have been murdered… we can only sadly extrapolate.
