As is often the case, someone comes up with a new idea that is going to alter humanity and forever redirect our course for the good. The healthcare bill is an example of such a hope-filled new idea. However, the healthcare bill contains within it some very old ideas, too, such as the idea that abortion is necessary for the health of a nation or a people. That idea is not new. Pharaoh thought it was necessary for the midwives to kill all the sons of Hebrew women–3,500 years ago (See Exodus 1). More recently, Margaret Sanger thought it was necessary to kill black children for the good of America (See here). Planned Parenthood (which arose from the work of Margaret Sanger) still targets blacks and minorities (See here). So, these new “progressive” ideas aren’t new. They aren’t good either. It is never good or healthy for a people to kill their offspring. It never will be good.
