Life, Liberty...Not so Much

Cal Thomas has an excellent piece over at Townhall.com explaining the effect of the health provisions contained in the new Porkulus bill. He makes a similar point to the one I did several days ago, namely that once a society assumes the right to arbitrarily murder unborn infants, no one remains safe. The next likely candidate will be the elderly and the infirm. Who knows, maybe eventually we will get Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's dream of eugenics. Only, of course, the ones to decide will be unelected bureaucrats in Washington.

You can see what is wrong with all this, I hope. What is wrong is that God decides who lives and whose work on earth is done. When man interferes to cut short a life that otherwise might serve God's plans, he takes on an awesome responsibility. Traditionally, we have called taking such responsibility murder.

Update: Laura Hollis also pointed out that all of this "steal from us"bill is designed specifically to impose a Marxist takeover of the United States. Hollis can be read here.
