Are We Better Off Since Roe v. Wade?

When was the last time someone tried to scam you? When was the last time you had to worry about the possibility of someone stealing your identity? When was the last time the murder toll in a major American city was lower than the death toll for American military in war zones? We lived in a crazy time when more Americans get killed in Chicago than in Afghanistan. We have to worry about scams, identity theft and security at home. Our children have to be supervised constantly to protect them. We put up with all kinds of security measures to travel and have to worry about home grown terrorists.
Something is terribly wrong. I grew up in a time when My house was only locked at night. I never had a key and I could go to the library, shopping center, ball park, playground or into the woods without worries of my safety. Even the library was safe. You didn’t have to worry about the kinds of books I would be exposed to. I could walk to the movies and in eighth grade I walked to Sears in downtown Newark, NJ. Don’t you wish you could raise your kids in a world like that?
What happened to that safe world where we didn’t have to worry about our kids being kidnapped or shot in drive-bys or being cheated out of our life savings. What happened to not having to constantly look over our shoulders constantly? What cause that world to break down?
Could it be that you can’t throw out any of the commandments without throwing all of them out. With Roe v. Wade we threw away the commandment, thou shall not kill. Thou shall not commit adultery was deposed of and Planned Parenthood and its allies pushed the pill and the sexual revolution. A lot more than our sexual morals disappeared. All of the morals holding our society disappeared too.
Take a look at America today. Do you really like the way we have to live in fear, the constant stress and danger? Decide for yourself whether we need anyone pushing us further away from God.
