Bill will allow unabated infanticide

On Jan. 22, the House of Representatives will vote on the Freedom of Choice Act. It is no coincidence this is also the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. The bill includes the removal of parental notification of teenagers, the funding of abortions by all taxpayers, and will require all hospitals to perform abortions on demand, which could lead to the closing of Catholic hospitals.

There are not enough Republican and pro-life Democrat votes to stop the bill. The Republicans can filibuster it in the Senate, but I predict it will reach the White House. President Barack Obama, who as a state senator voted for the killing of a child who happened to survive a botched abortion, has no problem signing this bill into law.

It is an abomination and the reductio ad absurdum of this country's principles, which flow not from the sovereignty of an eternal lawgiver, but from human autonomy and do-it-yourself religion, which has led to sheer and naked atheism.

Everyone is so concerned about saving the environment, ending the war to save lives, and saving the lives of baby seals, owls and snail darters, but not for the innocent unborn children slaughtered in the womb by selfish mothers and money-hungry, Godless doctors. And with the passage of this bill, the infanticide of American children continues unabated and with more "freedom" than ever.
