The Truth Will Out

Yesterday, on the 37th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, around 300,000* people marched to protest. Usually, the media ignores the march or they seriously downplay the number attending. Reuters wrote that tens of thousands attended this year, giving the impression that the actual number was far smaller than it actually was. And so many, if not most, Americans remain uninformed about the growing discontent with this Supreme Court ruling.

To honor the occasion NPR produced a show commemorating abortion "rights" for its fairly liberal audience. However, when the call-in portion began, most of the calls were from men and women who expressed deep grief and regret about abortions twenty and twenty-five years earlier. The normally cool professionals could hardly contain their surprise at the pain callers expressed about actions they took so many years ago.

The reality is that no matter what you call it or how you excuse it, you can not break the laws of God without suffering for it. The Ten Commandments tell us who we are and how to best take advantage of our lives. They are the Manufacturer's Handbook, not arbitrary rules from a vengeful God.

*The first march started with 20,000 protesters, but the numbers have grown through the years. Because it is possible to get accurate counts from the different organizations coming from all around the country, the March for Life organization numbers are far more reliable than media or, even, police estimates.
