Should the Civil Government Protect Human Life or Merely Regulate Murder?

I know, I know, that sounds like an extreme question. However, if your mother aborted you, I don't think it would sound extreme. It would sound like a fair question you would want to ask of the rulers who sanctioned your death.

Georgia's Legislature is looking at passing a state amendment to give "personhood" to humans at the moment of fertilization.

"Planning is Power"

Planned Parenthood's most recent commercial in the St. Louis area ends by asserting that "planning is power."

Betty Friedan finishes the preface of her book The Feminine Mystique by writing that she "believe[s] that women can affect society, as well as be affected by it; that in the end, a woman, as a man, has the power to choose, and to make her own heaven or hell."

Betty describes what happened in the Garden of Eden well. Eve decided that she had the power to make her own heaven, and then talked Adam into making the same decision. Since that time, women have not only been trying to play God, but also play the role that God gave to men.

Here is an article in the New York Times about the pressure on girls to be perfect in every way: varsity letter athletes in multiple sports, perfectly polished from head to toe, and scholarship winners entering Ivy League universities.

Oddly enough, the parents of the young woman featured in the article do understand that earthly outward "perfection" is obtained over the long run: “Our children start where we finished.”

What we do on earth doesn't get us into heaven, but that doesn't mean it doesn't matter. In other words, our perfection on earth doesn't earn us a ticket into heaven; however, we reap what we sow--generationally.

I'm not advocating that we should should lift up the "America Dream" as perfection because it's not reality. Getting the things we want in life requires hard work, sacrifice, and determination. These character traits can take generations to cultivate, and that means we've got to start now.

Alexis de Tocqueville on Women

"As for myself, I do not hesitate to avow that although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is in some respects one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen women occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked, now that I am drawing to the close of this work, in which I have spoken of so many important things done by the Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply: to the superiority of their women.

New York Times Front Page:

"51% of Women Are Now Living Without Spouse"

Phyllis Schlafly --

"I have just finish law school, but I have seen enough of the law to know that I'd much rather be a lawyer's wife and a mother than a successful lawyer," said Phyllis Schlafly in 1979 when she finished her law degree at 55 and after raising 6 children. (Felsenthal, The Sweetheart of the Silent Majority, pg. 52)

Mrs. Schlafly is the author or editor of 20 books...(full bio).

Secular society tells women they don't need God, and they certainly do not need a man. In their pursuit of happiness, they start down a path that may fill their pocket books and lift their egos, but will never completely satisfy. Mrs. Schlafly exemplifies how women can have it all by yielding to God's created order and working hard.
