Foul, Unnatural Murder

Murder most foul, as in the best it is,
But this most foul, strange, and unnatural.
~ William Shakespeare, Hamlet I:V

The passage of New York State's Reproductive Health Act on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade  was met with enthusiastic applause by the New York State Senate. Just imagine, cheers and clapping by government legislators for killing babies. If that doesn't make your blood run cold, nothing will.

In their startlingly rapid lurch to the left, the Democrats have stumbled into "Final Solution" territory. They have fully embraced state-sponsored murder, the favored tactic of brutal dictators down through the ages. Who's next, after the newborns? Will people with Down Syndrome be eradicated "after consulting with a physician"? How about the elderly? Will senior citizens past a certain bureaucratically selected age be deemed too old to continue living?

We can no longer say that can't happen here, in the United States. It's happening every day, and to the most defenseless innocents among us--infants. There is no good end to such evil. I'm reminded of Thomas Jefferson's foreboding notation, "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just." Perhaps a quote even more relevant to our time is this from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: "We can never forget that everything Hitler did was legal."

The ghoulish celebration that greeted the passage of the "Reproductive Health Act" sadly shows that we can indeed forget--that we have long since forgotten. God is just; we should tremble.
