Why must I pay for an abortion?

It seems as though B. Obama has changed the way every Americans tax dollar will be spent. i try really hard to like this guy, but time and time again Obama finds someway to abort a child…Here’s a new law for everyone that doesn’t wish their tax dollars spent on genocide. We will all now be paying for abortions!!! so I gogled abortion stats to see what my money will be spent for and forgive me for copying and pasteing BUT I LOVE THIS piece… Read and see what you think…mind blowing to say the least…

For two millennia in our Western culture, written into our constitutions, specifically protected by our laws, and deeply imprinted into the hearts of all men and women, there has existed the absolute value of honoring and protecting the right of each human to live. This has been an unalienable and unequivocal right. The only exception has been that of balancing a life for a life in certain situations or by due process of law.

* Never, in modern times — except by a small group of physicians in Hitler’s Germany and by Stalin in Russia — has a price tag of economic or social use-fullness been placed on an individual human life as the price of its continued existence.
* Never, in modern times — except by physicians in Hitler’s Germany — has a certain physical perfection been required as a condition necessary for the continuation of that life.
* Never — since the law of paterfamilias in ancient Rome — has a major nation granted to a father or mother total dominion over the life or death of their child.
* Never, in modern times, has the state granted to one citizen the absolute legal right to have another killed in order to solve their own personal, social or economic problem. And yet, if this is human life, the U.S. Supreme

Court Decision in America and permissive abortion laws in other nations do all of the above. They represent a complete about-face, a total rejection of one of the core values of Western man, and an acceptance of a new ethic in which life has only a relative value. No longer will every human have a right to live simply because he or she exists. A human will now be allowed to exist only if he measures up to certain standards of independence, physical perfection, or utilitarian usefulness to others. This is a momentous change that strikes at the root of Western civilization. It makes no difference to vaguely assume that human life is more human post-born than pre-born. What is critical is to judge it to be — or not to be — human life. By a measure of “more” or “less” human, one can easily and logically justify infanticide and euthanasia. By the measure of economic and/or social usefulness, the ghastly atrocities of Hitlerian mass murders came to be. One cannot help but be reminded of the anguished comment of a condemned Nazi judge, who said to an American judge after the Nuremberg trials, “I never knew it would come to this.” The American judge answered simply, “It came to this the first time you condemned an innocent life.”

Ponder well the words of George Santayana: “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it.” Wm. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Simon & Schuster, 1959

We’ve been paying for abortion with our tax dollars for at least the past 20 years. This is nothing new.

Saddly you are right :sad_yes: We have a fellow that for the next 3 years & 9 months will pass laws that allow more immoral behaviour than did Clinton. What is even more sad is that some Catholics voted for him. You gotta pay your taxes, you can’t help the cause if you are in jail.

Because of people like Lujack, Beau Ouiville, and Francis Kisling
