Aurora is the popular female polar bear at the Toronto zoo. Popular, even though she killed two of her cubs in October, and had a third one taken away by zoo staff for hand-rearing to prevent a similar fate. She did the same thing the year before, killing two of her cubs at birth by partially eating them. So, is Aurora a bad mother? Actually, not so bad by some standards. You see, this particular mother is a non-human, an animal.
Recently, many thousands of women all over this country, took an unauthorized holiday. In a statement released before the strike, the organizers said, “In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman. Hmmm …“for love and liberation!” For a vast majority of these women, the “liberation” they are referring to is the freedom they have been given to destroy their own children.
According to Margot Cleveland at The Federalist, statistics at the Guttmacher Institute (the research arm of Planned Parenthood) show that the worldwide abortion numbers for just girls alone equals more than double the population of the United States. Their statistics also give the following facts on children destroyed by abortion:
Of those choosing to end the life of their unborn child, * 1% are victims of incest or rape; * 1% had fetal abnormalities; * 4% had a doctor who said their health would worsen if they continued the pregnancy; * 50% said they didn’t want to be a single parent or they had problems in current relationships; * 66% stated they could not afford a child; *75% said the child would interfere with their lives. (cited in Rescue Update, June/July 1989, Southern California Operation Rescue, quoted in Sanctity of Life, C. Swindoll, Word, 1990, p. 12)
How ironic that these pro-abortion enthusiasts should label their big protest a “Day Without a Woman” when close to 750 million girls have been aborted since 1980. The Roe v Wade decision in this country was in 1973, so we would need to add several million to our own scorecard.
In the animal kingdom, males are more likely to do the killing. With females, it’s less common. But as we all know, in the “human kingdom,” it is usually just the opposite. It’s the human mothers willingly allowing the precious little lives of their unborn to be taken. May God have mercy on all of us for allowing this atrocity to ever become the law of the land.
