A generation lost

How many poets and writers, painters and artists, dreamers and singers, scientists and inventors, doctors and engineers, preachers and caretakers have we lost? How many literary works that will never be written or paintings that will never be painted, laughter that will never be sing or tears that will never be shed for we have lost generations to a false and broken promise. How many friends that we will never meet, brothers and sisters that we will never play or share the beauty and hardship of life, wives and husbands that will not grow old together…for there are no rights with out the right to life. How the world would look if they had a chance at life?

Since Roe vs. Wade there has been about 55,000,000 abortion in the United State alone, a generation lost.

  1. If there have been really been about 55,000,000 abortion in the United State alone than it says a lot of that public or those citizens. Strangely enough the U.S.A. has also the most fundamentalist Christians running around and extreme “Mega churches”, How then does it come that so many women are put in front of such a decision making?

    1. Hello,

      Thank you so much for commenting. I really appreciate the opportunity to dialogue on this issue.

      The statistics are derived from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) based on data collected from 1973 till 2010. The National Right to Life organization puts that number about 57 million abortions. However it is important not to get lost in statistics because every single life matters. The point of bringing such a number is to accentuate the fact that a whole generation of people like you and me never had a chance at life. That abortion does not only affects the woman and the child who does not survives the abortion but affects the whole society by talent lost and life not live.

      I completely agree with you that such lost of so many lives due to abortion speaks volumes of our post Christian society. It gives witness to a culture of death that treats its children as commodity. The fact that a sector of the society is willing to forgo the most basic right, that is the right to life, in exchange for freedom of choice, begs the question whether or not such a society can thrive. The alarming falling birth rates in Europe due to a contraceptive and abortive mentality substantiate this point. If the current trend in Europeans birth rate continues, Europe will see an implosion in its population and a drastic shift in its demographic.

      The fact that so many abortions have occurred since 1973 in a predominately Christian country does affect the validity of the argument against abortion neither tells the whole story. The pro-abortion movement was spearheaded not by Christians but by proponents of eugenics. These proponents such a Margaret Sanger, the founder of Plan Parenthood, viewed abortion not as a mean to empower woman but as a means for population control against undesirable minorities:

      “Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism … [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste”.

      Margaret Sanger

      The founder’s vision is self-evident when you notice that most abortionist offices are located in minority communities. According to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene there were more African American babies aborted (31,328) than were born (24,758) in New York City. It begs the question about the culture that has been fomented in these communities but also it is a indictment to Christians that have fail to evangelize these communities and even a greater indictment against Christians that support abortion.

      Ever since 1973 the American electorate has gradually move towards supporting laws the restrict abortion and the general sentiment amongst the youth is one that favors life instead of abortion. So even though the numbers are alarming there is hope for the future, that this country will open its eyes towards the brutality and the inhumanity of abortion. Hopefully it is not to late for Europe.



      1. The main problem is not necessarily the number of abortions but the mentality that drives such an industry. This mentality is a natural outgrowth of the contraceptive mentality. That views abortion as the failsafe against so-called unwanted pregnancy. Thus the main problem is the divorce of procreation from the sexual act, which not only frustrates what the act is naturally and properly order to do but also begets a mentality that is not open to life.

        The result is self-evident in the low birth rate across Europe and other developed countries. For example in order for a population to replace itself it needs at a bare minimum a birth rate of 2.0 (that is assuming zero infant mortality rate) but most European countries are under 2.0: Belgian is around 1.85 and Spain is about 1.25. Europe is facing a population collapse.
