Five questions, 10 answers: let's make prejudice, inequality history
Money. Happiness. Family. How do we define success?
I recently came across a very old prophecy that says: “The day is coming when they will say ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore a child, and the breasts that never nursed.’” That time must be already here. For according to the World Health Organization, every year there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions in the world. (125,000 human babies aborted per day.) Isn’t that what some local women have been celebrating, marching to demand even easier access as a right?
But we are compassionate people. We have laws about the humane treatment of farm animals and pets. We rescue injured birds and animals. Worry about saving pandas, piping plovers, bats, bees, swallows, right whales, salmon, cod, lady slippers, and more. How can caring people deliberately – and violently – destroy 125,000 tiny human children every day? There's some kind of disconnect involved. Oh, there was another rather ominous part to that old prophecy. About consequent disturbances in nature. It really didn’t sound like a blessing. Has that part started yet?
