Killing kids backfires

Infanticide has boomeranged fiercely. News out of Washington D.C. and China this week makes it obvious that abortion is, apart from being savage, reckless social policy.

Parents who kill their unborn children often report emotional and spiritual decay, but now it appears that society takes a hit demographically and financially as well.

Party-hearty Baby Boomers embraced the pill and abortion which allowed us to screw around without unwanted offspring. Forty million children, or one third of an entire U.S. generation were wiped out by abortionists since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

In our shortsighted self-absorption, it never occurred to us that those aborted babies might one day come in handy.

A report released Tuesday by demographer William Frey of the Brookings Institute in Washington D.C. details how many retiring Boomers face delayed retirement and insecure financial futures. Contributing to retirement angst was our choice to have fewer kids, and thus produce fewer taxpayers.

Remaining children will have to support the huge number of retiring Boomers in the Social Security system. In 1950, 16 workers supported each retiree; today, three workers support one. According to Social Security’s Board of Directors, benefits paid out will exceed taxpayer input by 2012.

Result: higher taxes and decreased benefits, with many Boomers, who tend to be spenders not savers, falling back on what children made it out of the womb intact.

“That one child they had will be very valuable,” says Frey. And let’s hope we are on good terms with that one child - if we need dough to tide us over until our demise.

China’s abortion backlash results from its one-child per family policy. That, coupled with its culture’s preference for boys, killed off millions of baby girls through abortion and post-birth infanticide. Now, their marriage-minded male counterparts have little hope for wives.

USA-TODAY reports that the 1995 sex ratio in central Hubei Province was 130.3 boys for every 100 girls. In all of China there will be an estimated 40 million young bachelors - known in Chinese as guang guan, “bare branches” or “bare sticks” - by 2020, “more than the current female populations of Taiwan and South Korea combined.”

USA TODAY further highlights a 1997 report in the Chinese magazine Beijing Luntan that correctly “predicted forced marriages, girls stolen for wives, bigamy, visiting prostitutes, rape, adultery, homosexuality, and weird sexual habits. Prostitution…is epidemic in Chinese cities. Bride-trafficking (kidnapping) is common in the countryside.”

2007 will witness 3800 deaths per day in the United States. Immorality and inconvenient pregnancies still demand abortion’s easy out, and kids are being trained accordingly.

Last week a Manchester, NH middle school chose the local Planned Parenthood facility for a spring field trip. That type of not-so-subtle abortion approval could ultimately spell an end to Social Security before those students turn gray.

Bible Byte: “ Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them…” Psalm 127:3-5a

Colorado Right To Life Kicked Out of National RTL
Two Days After Dr. James Dobson Concedes
"Ending partial-birth abortion… does not save a single human life."
Today in Kansas City Missouri, National Right to Life's board voted to disenfranchise a state chapter, Colorado Right To Life, from the umbrella organization. Two days ago, Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, admitted in a mass email that, "Ending partial-birth abortion… does not save a single human life." An unusually-public feud erupted within the movement after CRLT co-signed a series of open letters to Dr. James Dobson exposing that the Gonzales v Carhart U.S. Supreme Court ruling on partial-birth abortion (PBA) is not even a hollow victory for anti-abortionists.
An Open Letter published in the Colorado Springs Telegraph Gazette on May 23 began a barrage of criticism leveled at National Right To Life, Focus on the Family, and other industry groups for fraudulent fundraising in support of the PBA ban. WorldNetDaily.com (WND), a conservative, editorially pro-life online news outlet reported on June 7, " the fact that the legal [PBA] ruling, itself, does not and cannot be used to proscribe [prohibit] a single abortion ." Another concession to the Open Letter coalition came from the Thomas More Society's Pro-Life Law Center. The partial-birth abortion ban is " not going to stop any abortions as such," said TMS counsel Paul Linton who authored briefs submitted to the Supreme Court in support of the PBA ban, "They're still going to take place by other means."
Dr. Dobson released his June 2007 Action e-mail on Monday, and on Tuesday, a National RTL committee voted to remove state affiliation from its Colorado Right To Life chapter, CRTL being one of the pro-life organizations which has broken ranks with the movement's larger groups and is exposing the PBA fundraising irregularities.
Now that the 15-year battle to outlaw partial-birth abortion has ended with a ban and a ruling that have no authority to save a single life, CRTL's public rebuke is leading to frequent pro-life industry concessions such as in this Washington Post excerpt: "Chuck Donovan, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, a Washington advocacy group allied with Dobson, said... "there are certainly a fair number of people, including in our own building, who think… that, practically, there may not be even one fewer abortion in the country as a result." And according to WND, " the ban on partial-birth abortion is meaningless as it relates to the actual killing of unborn children," if the assessment of Life Dynamics' Mark Crutcher is correct. "In the final analysis… [the PBA ban's] practical implications for the unborn are zero," said Crutcher.
"We will tell the truth that National Right To Life doesn't want told," said Brian Rohrbough, president of Colorado Right To Life, "that NRTL advocates a strategy of child-killing regulations that undermine personhood and distract from the real battle." And Leslie Hanks, V.P. of Colorado Right To Life added, "As a fundraiser, partial-birth abortion has brought in hundreds of millions of dollars, but as a way to save lives, it has no authority to save a single child." Discussions of new affiliation are underway between CRTL and another principled pro-life organization fighting for the personhood of the pre-born.
