"We are all complicit in the 'culture of death' that has rocked the world. How many of us can honestly say that we have done our best to ensure the protection of all of the vulnerable, whether they be in a womb, in a wheelchair, or in a coma? I, for one, certainly cannot. And, judging by the poll numbers on life issues, most other Americans cannot, either.

Why are we in this predicament? We have far-left media that purport to report the news and cover issues of import, but refuse to cover things like the Gosnell trial. We have politicians that claim to be religious, but ignore Exodus 20:13, Psalm 127:3, Proverbs 6:16-17, and other verses. And, worst of all, we suffer a complacent public.

As I get older (now 66 and a “burden” on Medicare), these questions become more real. How much medical “help” do I want as I age? When the decision is made as a cost/benefit one rather than a moral one, it’s going to get very dicey. I read that one of the EU countries is going to start providing the Soylent Green option so you can off yourself.

We are at war, folks, on all levels - a war for our very souls.
