A Conflicted Culture

NARAL has dedicated their newest status report to the late Dr. George Tiller, who was one of only a few late-term abortionists in the country.

Tiller was shot and killed by a man last year with a history of mental problems.

That was tragic. All premature loss of life is tragic.

In the report NARAL praises President Barack Obama for his pro-abortion policies and for choosing pro-abortion people to serve in his administration, including NARAL's former legal counsel, Dawn Johnsen, who is yet to be confirmed for a senior position in the Justice Department.

The honor bestowed on Tiller is both tragic and sobering.

The report reads, "Through his life's work, Dr. Tiller compassionately and heroically served women from all across the country in order to ensure their right to reproductive health services. Dr. Tiller often spoke of his values---kindness, courtesy, justice, love and respect---which he brought to work every day."

In an era where our Founding Fathers are often trashed or "historically revised" in the classroom, and those who have truly made contributions to our country ignored or discredited, it is troubling that even NARAL would characterize that man's work in that way.

He was a man who even at the time of his death was under investigation for illegal practices in his abortion business.

A man who routinely artificially extracted babies from their mother's womb and destroyed their life shortly before natural birth, should not be honored as "compassionate," nor should he be elevated as "heroic".

And how have we gotten to a place where this practice is associated with "kindness, courteous, just, loving and respectable"?

We truly live in a conflicted culture, where what is right is said to be wrong and what is wrong is said to be right and just.

May God bring restoration and help in our time of need.

God bless you. Thank you for standing with us in the face of darkness.
