Exurban Kevin Creighton
Kevin Creighton (aka ExurbanKevin) is the self-described physical embodiment of NAFTA: He’s a Canadian living in the U.S. who speaks fluent Spanish. He’s also, (in ascending order of importance), a former professional photographer, recovering nerd, online marketing guru, father to two adorable boys, husband to a wonderful woman and a servant of the King. Kevin blogs about politics at Exurban League and his self-defense and gunblog is Misfires And Light Strikes. When he's not blogging (which isn't all that often...), he's probably playing with his sons or cooking a meal for his family or listening to 80's alternative music or off at a shooting range somewheres.
The Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Roe v Wade is responsible for 56 million murders in the first degree. Unjustly, it’s the victims who end up serving the life sentence.
We weep as the pictures and stories of the precious babies killed in Newton Connecticut cover our TV screen. We weep when a woman in Florida is considered not worthy to live because she may be in ‘’inconvenience’’ to her husband. We weep at government’s who put a time limit on the life of the elderly. We are emotionally torn when stories such as these consume the latest headlines. They all involve governments trying to take the place of a sovereign God at the expense of one’s first right of life, then liberty and then happiness.
It pains us to see a child’s life be taken from them when they just learned to repeat their ABC’s. It hurts to see a woman who by no means of her own desire is considered a ‘’burden’’ on society but yet in her unique way has the ability to still bring smiles to those around her. So, why is there not equal heartbreak to know that every day, abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood are executing thousands of innocent lives every day? Where is the outrage?
I would submit the cause of this enormous apathy in America is because we have become utterly desensitized to tragedies that don’t have a face or a name. It’s the very reason why for many people reading the names of America’s fallen heroes in the newspaper doesn’t have the same effect as actually seeing a picture or hearing a story. It’s sad but it’s true. If fifty-six million babies could’ve had their picture, name and story on television each night since 1973 would the wall that barricades the hardened hearts of millions of Americans finally be torn down? I believe so and that’s why abortionists like Planned Parenthood fight so adamantly against any law that requires a woman to see the heartbeat of her unborn child.
The second reason for America’s apathy towards abortion is over time we have made excuses for, and have de-criminalized the perpetrator. It seems when such a tragedy as Newton or Columbine happens the media is swamped with Doctors who inadvertently make excuses for the perpetrator. I have the utmost respect for Doctors/Psychiatrists who work every day to help those with mental illness. I understand there are illnesses that millions of Americans struggle with every single day. My argument is that we must stop diagnosing evil as a medical issue. Therefore, we must stop diagnosing abortion as a medical issue.
Every year, we remember and reflect upon events in American history that have forever changed the course of our history. Each year we remember the thousands of innocent Americans murdered on 9/11. We honor the heroes who were killed in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. We remember the victims of Columbine, Virginia Tech and now Newton, Connecticut. We must continue to do this every year and remember every single innocent life tragically taken too soon. However, we must also memorialize those who weren’t granted their chance to perhaps serve in the Marine Corps, become a New York City police officer or a first grade teacher. Every single anniversary of Roe v Wade should be the day we remember the 56 million children lost. They might not have a name or a picture, but they are no less of a human being.
Most of the historic moments that have forever changed America have had a beginning and an end. However, there is one moment in American history that has a beginning and it is our job to end it. We must reverse Roe v Wade. We must put an end to this ongoing tragedy that perpetrates behind the confines of cold concrete walls in cities across America. These babies are literally in a fight of their life and they’re up against their staunchest enemy, Barack Obama. As the most pro abortion President America has had, we know based on his legislative actions that Obama is hell bent on continuing the slaughter of these children. We know we have a major fight ahead of us. I always say this fight is “for the little peeps.” Do it for them. Be their voice. We must put an end to the silent screams.
