Lack of morality is more like it! No need to worry about nuclear fallout, we're already murdering our babies every day.
Ethic: Principle of right or good conduct or a body of such principles.
Remember when "ethic" actually meant something of good and high principle? I do! I remember when a person did something that the majority could look at and say that man has ethics, or he's ethical.
That definition doesn't hold true anymore. Today, we have new ethics, new morality and in essence that means our society in general a slipped into mediocrity as far as ethics and principles go. The following is an example of society's new ethics. A recent article in the Journal of Medical Ethics reads like a moral horror story. Regarding life and abortion, late term abortion, and now "post birth abortion". Actually all three are murder, this post birth abortion, is mayhem and brutal murder in the enth degree. Of course, in order to facilitate and justify the murder of newborns and beyond, another word for infanticide had to be found. Scientists at the Journal of Medical Ethics have settled on "Post Birth Abortion". Because the world has already been calloused toward the destruction of the fetus both in and out of the womb, called abortion, late term abortion, then the new Post Birth Abortion will be more easily accepted among the populace. This is what a couple of the scientists wrote, if it doesn't make you cringe, then it is already too late to save this world. " Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a "person" in the sense of "subject of a moral right to life". We take 'person' to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her/his own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her/him." Take a moment and re-read that statement, when your breathing becomes normal again, read the rest of their statement. " Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life: spare embryos where embryo research on stem cells is permitted, fetuses where abortion is permitted, criminals where capital punisment is legal.
So what are these scientists saying? That a new born infant is merely a 'potential person', as an infant cannot make decisions for itself, feed itself or determine a life direction for itself? Therefore a baby really isn't going to be a person until it can prove it's worth and value to exist??? Yes, that is exactly what they are saying. In other words, a baby, not necessarily a new born, but in fact way beyond that age is, according to the new ethics merely chatel property of the parent/parents, or maybe even the state in many instances. This new ethic removes the sanctity of life, does it not? Under new ethics, if a parent(s) are unhappy with the way their three year old is acting, then they could justify its extermination, and perhaps try again. Justifiable homocide certainly takes on a whole new meaning under society's new standard of ethics, doesn't it? Has our society as a whole actually degraded to a point of barbarism not seen since the dark ages. Has life become so insignificant that it is ethical to literally throw a child in the trash like so much unwanted garbage? My God, how have we decayed to this lowly position?
Everything from the world's apathy toward the expansion of Islam, to attacks on Christians and now on their consciences. It all stems from the degradation of morality, the destruction of the family unit and the departure from religious tenets that society once embraced. Where is it all headed? How long will it be before these so-called ethicists place the elderly in the same group as new borns? How long will it be before scientists set time lines and restrictions for human existence? At what age will a 'person' grow old enough to become a 'non-person', and thereby eligible for extermination?
Ladies and gentlemen we are living in a country where our president views unwanted babies as punishments to their mothers. A president without morality and without conscience who is encouraging and nudgeing the people in the same direction. We cannot allow this to continue. If it does, the slaughter of innocents will become common place. Population control and the environment will be used as excuses to destroy human life, all presented to you as acts of kindness and for the good of the planet and the remaining people. Good intentions??? The road to perdition is paved with good intentions! The Bible tells us the road to hell is wide, and many will take it.
God is our way, it is imperative that the world repent and pray and turn from it's wicked ways, so that God will hear from heaven and heal this land.
I grieve for my nation, and for the children of this corrupt and immoral society that is being created.
God Help Us
