Much has been written about the Lincoln connection to President Obama’s inauguration. Abraham Lincoln said: “Nothing stamped in the divine image and likeness was sent into the world to be trodden on.” Aren’t the most defenseless among us, the innocent unborn, stamped for the pursuit of life?
I fear that Obama will shackle us to a culture of death, enslave us by using our tax money to fund abortion on demand and erase the freedom of conscientious objectors to the procedure. During his campaign appearances, he promised “the first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice act.” FOCA overturns pro-life laws in all 50 states, strips away parental involvement rights and nullifies laws on partial-birth abortions.
Many of us are praying that he does not keep that campaign promise, or else a vast pro-life underground railroad will be set in motion. The Lincoln I’ve studied would be horrified at the civil war we continue to fight against the unmitigated slaughter of future generations because we are selfishly enslaved to “choice.”
I have no idea why Tim Geithner chose not to pay $30,000-plus in taxes, but as the newly appointed Treasury secretary, he apparently thinks that was no big deal.
Well, maybe what’s good for the goose should be good for the gander. I think I will conveniently deduct the same amount from my taxable income. Only, I will have a very definite reason for doing so. I do not want my tax dollars spent overseas (or here, either) for family planning (abortion) purposes.
