Today people from all over America have traveled to Washington DC to attend the 46th annual March for Life.
If you haven’t heard about this annual event, don’t discount it. It’s media blackout day for the mainstream “news” stations. This is common knowledge among pro-lifers.
All the alphabet news networks and cable outlets with the exception of Fox News either ignore the hundreds of thousands who gather each January, or report only about anti-life opposition to the march.
Some media outlets also lie about the size of the crowd every year, so it’s difficult to give an accurate number, but rest assured that at least a million people around the country march for this cause every January. In addition to the march in Washington there are marches in states, cities and towns.
According to this article, the only one I could find with an actual number, upwards of 650,000 people attended the March for Life in 2013.
Since this event grows every year, there may be a million people in DC alone right now, marching up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court to protest the barbaric and inhumane murder of the weakest and smallest human beings–unborn human babies.
Respecting all human life from conception to natural death.
Though today the unborn are at the forefront of the pro-life movement, we need to remember the elderly, the physically and mentally handicapped and others who are targeted for death in the practice of euthanasia around the world.
I’m not going to provide links to the news stories that have been published about the above horror. Folks that want proof can do a google search.
Just rest assured that it happens.
And please, please, understand that abortion and all of the above practices are completely at odds with Christianity and human freedom, no matter what people have been led to believe.
I have gone to DC twice to attend the March for Life, in 2009 and 2010. It was a wonderful experience, and I urge everyone, even people who believe abortions are A-OK, to attend at least once if possible.
Because this is a matter of life and death, not only for the millions of children who have died over the years and the thousands who are killed each day, but also for our civilization.
Flourishing civilizations that used or use abortions or infant murder as a building block.
Where are they? Can anyone point one out?
According to history, the Roman empire exposed infants as a matter of course.
The Romans, who had managed to conquer the known world of their time, killed human beings of all ages for many different reasons.
Some were Christians who were persecuted and fed to lions in the Coliseum. They were also driven underground into catacombs where they worshipped God in secret.
Some died as gladiators, slaves who fought each other to the death so the “cool people” back then could have a day out at the Coliseum and enjoy some entertainment.
And some died in abortions, or by being left out for the wolves by their parents because they were not born “perfect.”
Where is the Roman empire today? Gone. It’s no longer here, right? Such barbarism should not be a part of any modern society, and though the Romans were “modern” back in their day, their civilization declined until it was no more.
Where are the Aztecs? Where are the Mayans? Where are the Spartans?
How are the Communist countries that use abortion as part of their society doing? China is the first one to come to mind, but there are probably others.
My point in writing the above is: No civilization that normalizes the taking of innocent human life can last. Do we want our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to grow up as America descends further and further into a culture of death, hatred, and poisonous ideas?
Americans need to think long and hard about what is going on in our country. Through the blood and toil of our forefathers we were given the gift of a free and independent existence in America.
But it may not always be the America we know and love. It is changing right before our eyes into something different–a country where life has become cheap and unappreciated, and sometimes even hated.
Our country and Western civilization as a whole could be on the way out right now.
It cannot flourish when a death cult has advanced to the point of U.S. Senators displaying anti-religious bigotry while tossing arrogant questions at Catholics during judicial confirmation hearings.
Originally founded in 1882, the Knights of Columbus started as a society benefitting poverty-stricken Catholic immigrants; now, the organization donates nearly 200 million dollars per year from approximately 15,000 chapters across twelve countries.
Senators Harris and Hirono insisted that Buescher’s membership gave him an inherent judicial bias, effectively disqualifying him from the opportunity to sit on the federal bench. Of course, Sen. Harris immediately defaulted to the gender card.
“Sen. Harris described the Knights as “an all-male society and asked if Buescher was aware that the Knights of Columbus “opposed a woman’s right to choose” and were against “marriage equality” when he joined,” the Catholic News Agency reported.
As anyone with a basic knowledge of the Catholic faith could easily confirm, the Knights of Columbus are, indeed, opposed to abortion and same-sex marriage, as the Catholic Church constitutes. However, as Americans saw in the confirmation hearings for then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and many other federal court nominees, Senate Democrats insist that any remote tie to a religious or Conservative organization is nothing short of a disqualifier.
As Americans know, our Constitution prohibits discrimination on religious grounds. The above behavior is a disgrace. This sort of backward thinking went out when JFK was elected president.
Yet progressive Senators are so attached to the cult of abortion that they ignore the real science that has come to light since 1973 and resort to knuckle-dragging religious bigotry that the rest of us put behind us fifty years ago.
These Senators would benefit from this video of life in the womb. So would many others. Please watch it. It’s less than two hours long, a relatively short amount of time in an anyone’s life when thinking about life and death issues.

My reason for blogging today.
I haven’t blogged much since starting this new website. I thought I would try to keep my personal views to a minimum. If you’re a reader of my dystopian series, you already know that I am a committed Roman Catholic and a staunch defender of human life.
I did not begin this day with thoughts of blogging about the March for Life.
But earlier while praying the Rosary for the marchers, the unborn, the parents, and all those who support or participate in abortions (that their eyes might be opened to what is really happening) I had trouble keeping my mind on my prayer.
When praying the Rosary we meditate upon the life of Jesus Christ, and on Fridays the Sorrowful Mysteries of Christ’s Passion and death on the cross are prayed.
As I prayed, the ideas written of above went through my mind. I was listening to the Rosary on my phone via the Catholic app Laudate.
The man leading the rosary prays a short prayer to Mary, Mother of Jesus, before each decade of ten Hail Marys. One of the prayers was to have the courage to do or speak about the truth or something to that effect.
My mind kept going back to today’s March. One of the Sorrowful Mysteries is the scourging at the pillar, when we are to think about Christ being whipped by Roman soldiers after his arrest.
In the lead up to His scourging, Pontius Pilate speaks to Jesus. During the course of this conversation Jesus explains who He is and why He came into this cold, sad world.
Pilate went back into the Praetorium, summoned Jesus, and asked Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”John 18: 33-37
34“Are you saying this on your own,” Jesus asked, “or did others tell you about Me?”
35“Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed You over to me. What have You done?”
36Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world; if it were, My servants would fight to prevent My arrest by the Jews. But now, My kingdom is not of this realm.”
37“Then You are a king!” Pilate said.
“You say that I am a king,” Jesus answered. “For this reason I was born and have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to My voice.”
When I thought of this, I remembered Pilate’s answer to Jesus, who was soon to die for our redemption: “What is truth?”
What is truth?
What is the truth about abortion? Shouldn’t we all ask ourselves this question?
It would be easier for me to have brushed away the idea of writing this post today.
Yes, the above is also true. I used to post regularly about the horrible practice people are marching against today, but since 3 years of blog posts have been wiped from the internet I have found it easier and less stressful to write less about this subject.
Because the haters are out there all over social media and the internet, and they are vicious. They do not hesitate to spew their hatred, lies and slurs at people who insist that every human life should be respected.
But come as they may, I wrote this post. If it reaches only one person and makes them truly ponder what abortion means, any hateful comments will be of small consequence.
