"In 2014, 652,639 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC from 49 reporting areas. The abortion rate for 2014 was 12.1 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years, and the abortion ratio was 186 abortions per 1,000 live births." - https://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/data_stats/abortion.htm
It always sends chills up and down my spine when I contemplate events such as the top ten reasons causes of death in the US (which are: Heart disease, Cancer, Chronic lower respiratory disease, Accidents (unintentional injuries), Stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Diabetes, Influenza and pneumonia, Kidney disease, Suicide) and how many have put themselves directly in harm's way, many folks do so for monetary purposes. The voice of those people are lost in the static of the media bashing anyone who expresses a voice dissent with the view represented in the segment; it happens on both sides. There is an overt generalization that takes place by the host, whether it be Tucker Carlson, Rachel Maddow, Sean Hannity, or any of the multitude who get the chance to sit behind the desk and report the news and comment thereon.
When I consider the factors, I find it saddening to imagine the position of the Left, and I most definitely, find myself alongside the struggle of the liberal who wishes for a peaceful resolution. It truly boggles my mind how, in the mind of the Leftist, it is deemed a humanitarian position to be worried about the personhood of the North Korean who is living under the tyrant Kim Jun Un but it is nearly mandatory to negate the same attention in the case of the unborn person, almost to the point of actually removing the personhood from that person (a sentence I struggled to write). Linking these two things almost seems like a stretch until we consider the real-life parameters involved in both situation (choice, opportunity, even being born, etc.); these two very different scenarios create one of the many contradictions in the logic of the Left.
There is no question, with well over 350,000 U.S. soldiers having given their lives in the name of Libert, Freedom, Law, Order, Peace, and Justice, there is a very real threat involved with choosing to not fight in the war donned "The War on Terror", namely those who arguably adhere more to the actual words of the Quran and the works of its devotees. One can only imagine that if one shoe were exchanged for another and North Korea were sending folks to hijack our airplanes because written works of Buddha, Marx, Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il, or Richard Dawkins were interpreted to mean one to do such, that nation, religion, group of folks or adherents would not simply vetted for security sake, but likely monitored for violent or discriminatory activities, in the least.
Realistically, the world is a dog eat dog place, but the Left takes that phrase to a new place, especially when, within the borders of the U.S., the Left has chosen to build a hierarchy designated to trample down the traditionalism which it has come feel to be far too extreme though the structure in question is the nowhere near as extreme as, say, Islam, which actually holds a pretty high position in the aforementioned hierarchy, coming second or third to only Transgender practices, Transagism, Transpeciesm, or any of the like. This is part of the reason for some of the confusion around the allegations swirling folks like Kevin Spacey, who was accused of being inappropriate with a young actor many years ago which infuriated the gay community though it served as the catalyst to Mr. Spacey coming out as a gay man. Or how the Left would rather focus on the Republicans who opposed the notion of allowing the bathroom to be a place for folks to play pretend or to let delusions play out instead of the ramifications thereof. Personally, as contrary to any ethics, morals, or sanity I'm aware of this whole notion of grown men being in the bathroom of the opposite sex is, I continually find the argument of this having been happening since civilization became civil the most sound argument the Left and the Transgender activist have.
It seems the reality of these matters truly complicate themselves in light of reason because the act of being reasonable requires one to look beyond the current situation or event, and form some trajectory. Legal recognition is demanded by particular groups (the LGBT++++++, for example) in the name of equality while the discrimination being decried is being given to those who simply ask for reason; a question I typically ask, for instance, is: why is the science concerning homosexuality continually ignored? While I haven't heard a clear answer, I can reasonably arrive at a very safe conclusion: convenience. It becomes very hard to rationalize an argument against the very science being argued for when the topic is something like global warming (climate change), or GMO's (organic farming); it is a special level of absurdity based in ignorance; willful ignorance.
To choose to do the right thing does not automatically bring about the very best result, only the better of two less than ideal situations, though the Devil often brings us evil wrapped in a "better" type situation. The great thing about choice being the most liberating trait intrinsic to humanity is even if one chooses not to use it, it does not cease to be. One cannot, in good conscience, believe one to have no choice in sexuality while believing in all other aspects of life to there being a choice; it is foolish. My question is then, Why does the entire Left so hate the concept of redemption? Why does the Left hate second chances?
