The abortion lobby continues to regurgitate the long-debunked myth of overpopulation as a justification for the holocaust they are carrying out. It's also safe to assume that, as the economy plummets further into the abyss of Obamanomics, these degenerates will be pushing their particular brand of child sacrifice as the only thing standing between humanity and the apocalypse. Listen closely and you can almost hear them breathlessly warning us, "Quick! Before it's too late! We've got to kill these unborn babies before they start gobbling up all our food and breathing all our air!"
I have often referred to the Biblical admonition about reaping what you sow and how it applies to the abortion issue. I won't go into the details but, in a nutshell, consider that the same generation that has spent the last 40 years killing its own children whenever it found them inconvenient, unhealthy or expensive is now entering a stage of life where it will soon be inconvenient, unhealthy and expensive.
In order to appreciate the impact of this, a few things need to be considered. First, from now until 2026, baby-boomers reach retirement age at the rate of 10,000 a day. However, the money to fulfill the government's financial obligations to them does not exist. Oh sure, the boomers paid into the Social Security system, but Congress was running a Ponzi scheme with it. They took the money, left an IOU in its place and then squandered it to buy votes. Making matters worse, since 1973, over 25 percent of the taxpayers needed to replace this money were executed through abortion. This guaranteed that a significantly larger tax burden would be visited upon a significantly smaller base of taxpayers.
The result is that the day is rapidly approaching when Americans will be forced to send boxcars full of their money to the government in order to pay for services that were already paid for once. Any way you cut it, the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the baby boomers are going to be taxed into oblivion replacing the money that was stolen by Congress.
A similar financial tsunami is also starting to hit the shores of our healthcare system. Think about this: in 1900, the average person in the United States lived less than 48 years and only one person in 25 lived to be 60. Today, the average life expectancy is almost 80. In addition, the number of Americans living past 100 doubled in the 1980s and doubled again in the 1990s. The downside is that, when it comes to the cost of healthcare, these added years are by far the most expensive years of a person's life.
These, and other, demographic realities are poised to bankrupt the Medicare and Medicaid systems. And again, one of the primary factors behind these demographics is abortion. The question this raises is very simple. When a society morally bankrupts itself by legalizing the sacrifice of a specific group of human beings in order to address social problems, is it then conditioned to solve the social problems created by an aging population in the same way?
I suggest that the answer lies in whether we think God was lying about this reaping and sowing business. (In case you're wondering, He wasn't.) I also suggest that the day of reckoning is not far off but is, instead, already at our throats. It's called socialized medicine. That view was reinforced a few days ago when Obama appointed David Berwick to oversee America's healthcare entitlement programs. Berwick is an open and rabid supporter of a single-payer system in which healthcare is rationed by the government. During a speech he gave in England to celebrate that country's 60th anniversary with socialized medicine, he said, "Cynics beware, I am romantic about the National Health Service. I love it." A year later, in an interview with Biotechnology Healthcare Journal, he stated that, "The decision is not whether or not we will ration healthcare – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open."
Now he will be in a position to make it happen.
Let's cut to the chase. There are those who, despite all the evidence to the contrary, still cling to the idea that overpopulation is destroying the world. Today, they serve as a living testimony to the difficulty of changing beliefs with mere facts. And when the time comes that our Healthcare Czars have figured out that population growth and exploding healthcare costs are not driven by too many babies being born but by older people taking too long to die, the unborn will no longer be alone on the radar screen. At that moment, we will begin living in a world where a couple could have their unborn child aborted in the morning and their grandmother euthanized in the afternoon. It will be a world in which the "reap what you sow" prophecy is being carried out.
At this point, the only thing to be decided is whether it is too late to turn back. I do not pretend to know the answer to that question. Perhaps we will all be in a better position to make that determination come November 2nd. But what I can tell you, right now, is that if we do not turn back we will soon have no choice but to accept our fate in The Brave New World.
