The United States of America has surely grown complacent to abortion.
The proof thereof can be easily verified.
I am well aware the 40 Days For Life movement started in America and many great pro-life initiatives belong to this country. Yet still, for over 40 years the legalized slaughter of the unborn has remained the law of the land.
What follows are four observations of the indifference America has to abortion.
1. MEDIA SILENCE
The most common surgery performed in this country remains abortion. Yet, who has ever seen an abortion procedure on television or in a documentary? How few people know the different types of abortion procedures?
The mainstream media has seen to it that there be a virtual blackout on abortion procedures.
The media has an obvious double standard. In November 2015, a deranged madman shot and killed several people at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Every news agency carried that story and it was plastered all over the news for weeks.
Yet, every day all across the country Planned Parenthood and other abortionists murder over 3,000 unborn babies. But you never heard a peep about that. And you never do.
America has grown complacent to abortion, as evidenced here. A literal holocaust of human life goes on every day in this country, and the media ignores it. And people tune in to the media, to allow themselves to be distracted from it too.
2. DO YOU SEE WHOM PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR?
Pro-abortion politicians get elected and re-elected in this country. That alone continues to be a terrible scourge.
There is a difference between serving the public and killing the public, as Fr. Frank Pavone likes to say. Any politician who thinks murdering children makes for a successful public policy should not be worthy of anyone’s vote. Yet, we see politicians stumping for the “right” to have one’s own child dismembered.
America has grown complacent to abortion, thinking a good elected official includes someone willing to advocate for the murder of the unborn.
3. CHRISTIAN CHURCHES LARGELY APATHETIC
How many Catholic bishops, Catholic priests, Protestant preachers, or Orthodox ministers do you see in the public square serving as activists for the unborn?
There are very notable exceptions, but largely they are few and far between.
Non-Catholic preachers seem unwilling to address the pro-life cause in their preaching. Perhaps they fear it will upset too many and hurt the collection plate, by which they earn their living. Catholic clergy are not rising up in droves either.
America has grown indifferent to abortion, when even the Sunday service sermons are devoid of any mention of our modern day holocaust. If we can’t rely on our Christian leaders to stump for the unborn, then from where will we turn?
4. PROMOTION OF CONTRACEPTION
You want proof this country has become cold to abortion? Just look at all the people dependent on the availability of contraception.
How many times do you hear people pushing the lie that if only contraceptive use were more rampant, abortion rates would drop? American women are expected to spend the majority of their fertile years on the birth control pill, with an IUD, or having had a sterilization.
That’s where we are at, folks. America would just assume purposely, chemically prevent babies from coming into existence.
As well, abortifacient contraception remains in vogue too. We would selfishly rather kill children than see them be born.
“A Nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope,” laments Pope Saint John Paul II.
Can you think of other proofs America has grown complacent to abortion?
