January 22, 2020, was the 47th anniversary of the infamous United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision which granted the federal government’s imprimatur to abortion on demand as a newly ‘created right’ suddenly discovered hidden within the U.S. Constitution. Since that horrible decision, over 60 million babies have been aborted in America. The devastation extends to the millions of mothers who are damaged physically and emotionally, many of whom die themselves as a result of abortion. Friday, January 24, 2020, was the annual National March for Life in Washington DC. President Donald J Trump made history at that event by becoming the first president to address the March in person.

This author has been ardently pro-life for about 40 years or so. Along the way, I have participated in some protests by marching with thousands and in others by praying alone in front of Planned Parenthood clinics, as well as helping establish Crisis Pregnancy Care centers in two communities. During this time, I have also followed the antics and proposals of the “pro-choice” crowd closely and written much about the evil nature of the “pro-choice” philosophy. Earlier this year the vile doctrine of the Left plumbed the depths of evil to the very bottom by politicians in New York and Virginia promoting killing the baby up to, and even beyond, leaving the womb.
Or so I thought. I should have known better. I actually underestimated how grotesque “pro-choice” actions can, and have become.
The importance of battling the Left in the short run, or ‘short game’ is akin to holding the line against a multitude of attacks on multiple fronts in the culture war. It cannot be overstated that conservatives must protect Western society against the imminent dangers of a Leftist takeover.
However, it is perhaps even more vital that conservatives work out a strategy to successfully engage in the ‘long game’ of cultural change. Otherwise, the ‘short game’ victories will be short-lived and the overall war will tilt even more toward a Leftist defeat and a disaster for liberty around the world.
The classic film “Anatomy of a Murder” was released in 1959. It stars the great Jimmy Stewart, my personal choice for the best actor ever. Stewart portrays a lawyer defending a suspect charged with killing a man as revenge for that man raping and killing his wife. 60 years later the atmosphere in America has been tainted by a different sort of homicide. It is the most malevolent form of killing […]
In 1919, W.B. Yeats composed the haunting and powerful verse, “The Second Coming.” A few of the lines from his apocalyptic reflection in the aftermath of World War 1 are particularly instructive a century later. …Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, … The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely […]
I was reading a post by one of my favorite Christian bloggers a little while back. As part of her post, she laid out a Christian case for being pro-life. She advocated for the humanity and personhood of a baby in the womb using the example of a baby that had been in the womb for eight months. One of those who commented disagreed with the author’s assessment. The commenter was […]
There has been a spate of news over the past few years concerning gatherings of local and denominational church leaders who pray that God would bless Planned Parenthood clinics. Moreover, there have been officials of various churches defending the ‘right’ to abortion on demand. These events have not been greatly publicized in the national media. However, they are perhaps the most overt signs that Leftism has invaded the modern mainstream […]
