ARE WE ABORTING OUR NATION OUT OF EXISTENCE?

In the 1960’s, progressives advocated that married couples limit offspring to three; two to replace themselves with only one to grow on, or as a spare. This is the thinking which I believe set the stage for decriminalizing abortion and homosexuality, anything went as long as we didn’t multiply ourselves. We couldn’t risk becoming an over populated country like China, or like India with their opium dens. (popular at that time). Coat hangers are their montra in 2018
The fear-mongering, counter-culture activists in the 1960’s once spread the poison idea that normal and natural reproduction would create a population explosion that our land could not handle.
They claimed there wouldn’t be enough trees to clean the air and provide fuel, or enough pasture land to feed the cattle and grow crops necessary to feed our growing masses.
The results are in. Illegal immigration brings into our country, foreign speaking people with no regard for legalities; and in numbers rapidly equaling exceeding that required to replace our own aborted Americans.
And guess what? There ARE still enough trees to clean the air, wood to burn, and there IS enough pasture land to feed cattle and grow crops.
The fear-mongering activists were wrong. And we believed them.
A group called Californians for Population Stabilization, (www.cap-s.org) (no longer found) which contends that high levels of immigration are ruining the quality of life in that state, released a report with studies that estimated there are from 20 million to 38 million illegal immigrants in the United States. THAT was back in 2012.
“While various sources place the number of abortions anywhere between 40-48 million, the centers for Disease Control and Prevention would approximate the number of abortions performed since 1973 to be 40,944,029.” (1973-2012) Source; Centers for Disease Control and prevention: Abortion Surveillance – United State 2003 Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report Vol 55, o.ss-11 November 24, 2006.
Lessons that should be learned? Beware of activists, even politicians, who cry ‘no more status quo’, and beware the ‘counter culture’, even those who peddle ‘hope’, thus implying there is no current hope. Will we believe hype again? Beware the unknown or we may become exiles in our own land because we once again believed a lie (the many lies).
How much longer can we murder
Americans and favor illegals?
