This is an excellent documentary on the history of the birth control issue. I highly recommend it.
Is baby murder a form of quality health care?
President Obama seems to think so. Read the quote below from a current speech he gave at a Planned Parenthood event, and notice how he calls abortion “quality health care,” and how he refers to a woman murdering her baby as “choices about her own health.”
"No matter how great the challenge, no matter how fierce the opposition, there's one thing the past few years have shown us: Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere. As long as we've got to fight to make sure women have access to quality health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve got a president who’s going to be right there with you."
Obamacare is not America’s healthcare messiah.
It is true that there is a health crisis in America, but the answer is not more healthcare or “free” healthcare. The answer to the health crisis in America is more morality. The best thing the government can do for the health of this country is to stop promoting sin. It is a contradiction for the government to talk about AIDS prevention while promoting homosexuality. It is a contradiction for the government to say that STDs and teen pregnancy are too prevalent in this country, while promoting the usage of contraceptives by making them available to government school kids, and without parents knowing. It is a contradiction to say that too many people are dying young because of a lack of access to “quality healthcare,” while calling abortion “sound medical practice.” It is a contradiction to say that healthcare is the governments business, while saying that the murdering of babies is not the governments business, but is rather a private family matter that the government should not interfere with.
The problem in America is sin; the majority of all diseases and injuries in America are directly related to the sinful lifestyles of the American people. No amount of healthcare can fix the consequences of sin. Therefore, we don’t need more healthcare, we need Christ.
