The barbarity of Islam has been front and center in the news lately. The murder and beheadings of captive journalists, the savage massacres of Christians and threats against America all culminated late last week with the beheading of a woman in Moore, Oklahoma by a Muslim convert. The shock value of such actions is inescapable and leaves people wondering just what kind of person could inflict such horrible acts on another human being. What’s lost on people is that such horror has been going on all over the world for decades, with Americans being at the forefront of the butchery. And your tax dollars are paying for a lot of it.
If you haven’t already guessed, I’m referring to abortion. Since abortion became legal in 1973 there have been more than 57 million abortions in the United States and more than 1.35 billion worldwide. One of the leading providers of abortion in America is Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood provides around 330,000 abortions every year in the United States. They receive several hundred million dollars every year in government funding and grants. Purportedly, this funding goes towards other services as well as abortion, but there can be no denying that tax dollars are funding abortions.
In my post Liberals and ISIS: Two Peas In A Pod I outlined the similarities between the butchery conducted by ISIS and abortionists. In addition to beheadings, ISIS has murdered people in ways so horrific I cannot fathom the evil that one’s soul must possess to do such things to someone.
Today I read of Jessa Duggar being on the receiving end of some vile, profanity-laden hatred from liberals. If you’re not familiar with her, she’s one of the Duggar daughters on the reality show 19 Kids and Counting. The Duggars have nine girls and ten boys and the show follows their lives. They are Independent Baptists and staunchly moral.
Jessa Duggar recently visited the Holocaust Museum and shared her thoughts about it on Instagram. She wrote of the horror of the Holocaust and related it to abortion, saying that “every life is precious.” The liberals went apoplectic, calling her every dirty name possible. Why is it that liberals can’t be upset about something without throwing our every profane word available and even making up new ones?
The fact that she hit a nerve is proof that her comments about the horror of abortion were right on the money. Speaking the truth about abortion will always bring an angry, hateful backlash from abortion supporters.
How is it that some people can be horrified at a beheading, but still insist that abortionists are doing no wrong when they rip babies limb from limb while still in the womb or even partially born? In fact, I would argue that unleashing such barbarity on a helpless baby is more evil than doing the same to an adult.
After more than 57 million abortions in the last forty-three years, have we become so desensitized as a nation that abortion is no big deal to most people? If so, that is a depressing indicator about the moral status of our country, that the same butchery that horrifies us in the news is championed and celebrated as a right by the liberals when done to babies. To my mind, with so many killed in the last four decades that makes the American left far more prolific in their butchery than ISIS. The left has committed their butchery far longer and on a much larger scale. Perhaps ISIS is the junior varsity, after all. When it comes to butchery, everyone takes a back seat to the left in our country. Their evil is unmatched.
