Abortion Is Not Healthcare

16 12 2009

When Roe vs Wade became law, the feminists and other liberals were overjoyed to think they had won one of their most important battles. They identified the murdering of those still in the womb as freedom for women, freedom from being chained to their reproductive systems. I never quite understood any of this. To me, with all the means available to avoid pregnancy, why in the world would someone become pregnant if they didn’t want to. It was so easy to avoid becoming pregnant. Just simply take the birth control pill or use condoms or make sure the male partner had a vasectomy. Simple answers. But those in charge, those feminists and other liberals, were determined to destroy human life. They wanted to run everything from their perspective, their viewpoint. And so they won that important battle. Of course since that time, it has been documented many times over just how many millions of innocent lives have been destroyed in the wombs of their mothers. And, at the time of the ruling of Roe vs Wade, it was said of those pro-lifers – ‘they will go away’. After time, they will just disappear. They will give up their battle.

So now we have come down to that all important issue regarding the paying for abortions by the government run health care system that is being debated in the congress today. And, again, one of the feminist spokespersons recently said that she could not believe that the feminists are still having to fight the same battle over abortion that they had successfully fought so many years ago.

Wonder why they thought we pro-lifers would go away. Wonder why they thought we would just disappear into the woodwork. We will never go away. We will fight until we win this battle for those millions of innocent lives that have been snuffed out in their mother’s wombs. And when we are gone, our children will continue to fight that same battle over and over again. And we will win.

Why get into the healthcare business?

Regarding the health insurance bill that OUR congress is supposedly studying during their recess, since when is the government supposed to pay for everything for people. I think if I remember right that they call this Socialism or in some cases, Communism. You give all your health, money and time to them and they spend it as they please. Government runs everything in your life. Or at least that is the way I think it works. That is the way it worked in Hitler’s Germany and in Stalin’s Russia. Hope it doesn’t work that way in Obama’s United States of America. Heaven forbid!

You purchase insurance for your car, your home, and your valuables. You even purchase your own life insurance. The government does not pay for them.  Nor do they regulate every aspect of that insurance. And yet, when it comes to your health insurance, the government seems to think they need to take care of you from womb to tomb. Why? I cannot imagine why myself. And you pay for that home insurance, that car insurance, and the insurance for your valuables and even for your life insurance with your own money. Except for special circumsances, your employer does not pay for any of these insurance premiums. And he does not tell you how to buy them nor where to buy them.

Why should health insurance be any different? Didn’t use to be. I used to buy my own health insurance from whatever insurance company gave me the best deal. I shopped this just like I shopped all my other insurance policies and went with the company that did the most for me. Isn’t this the way it is supposed to be done?

So why doesn’t the government back out of the health insurance business and let us get on with our own business. Sounds like a good idea to me. What do you think?
