A profound and poignant article by Selwyn Duke from New American:
What a society talks about — and what it fails to — both speak volumes about it. And lately, the news has been replete with stories about the Obama’s new canine acquisition, a Portuguese water dog the first family has fittingly named Bo. Yet while the little curly-haired purebred is creating a tempest in a teapot — because Barack Obama said during the campaign that he intended to get a “rescued” dog, such as one from a shelter — few talk about a type of rescue to which Obama won’t even pay lip service.
Of course, it certainly is fashionable to lament the plight of abandoned animals, and for sure, no humane person wants to see any of God’s creatures suffer needlessly. Yet, shouldn’t this sublime compassion extend to His children as well? I speak of abortion.
On the very day the Obamas got their dog, more than 4,000 babies died in America’s abortion mills. In fact, Planned Parenthood reveals in its Annual Report 2007-2008 (pdf) that its "clinics" performed 305,310 abortions in 2007. It also divulges that to help it perform this work, it received $349.6 million of taxpayer money in the form of government grants and contracts for the year ending June 30, 2008. In other words, many of the abortionists who have authored the deaths of more than 50 million babies since the Roe v. Wade court ruling have been partially financed with our money.
