Freedom of Choice

Let me just start by saying we all have a political and religious view… Even if you’re an Atheist and Anarchist, you still have a view, and that’s part of the makeup of who you are. A portion of what influences the decisions you make. So the whole idea of separation of religion and state are garbage, you cannot separate a man from himself.

 

Now onto the topic at hand, Freedom of Choice.

Well here’s a thought, and I am sure I am not the first to have it, but it’s a first for me, so I want to share it. We here so often that everything is about freedom of choice. Free Speech, freedom to bear arms, a woman’s choice to carry a child to birth and so on.

 

We have heard this all before, but I had a bit of a different prospective today. I have been spending some time of the last few weeks with John Adams, and learning what one of our founding fathers was really like. In reading about him it hit me, as this nation’s founders were sitting around the local taverns dreaming up a revolution, and planning the best way to break free from the British. It occurred to me, where was the freedom of choice on Great Briton’s side? We all know about the revolutionary war but have you ever thought that it was not only a war to establish our freedom as a nation, but also a war to silence the voice of our oppressors. I thank God that things went the way they did.

 

Also, one can look at the war on slavery the same way, by giving the slaves their freedom we took away the slave owners freedom

 

Women’s right to vote… Same story

 

The truth in this is that in restoring the voice to one people group another is silenced. Freedom always comes at a great cost to another people group. Always, and every time when there is an injustice there is a group of people to are willing to stand up to what appears to be unbeatable odds.

 

So what am I getting at here. Well there’s a war in America right now over the right to life. One side is fighting for a woman’s right to choose to forgo 9 months of her life that is shared with someone else. Remember she has every right to walk away after giving birth and never see the child again.

The other fights for a life that could last for 80 or 100 years, allowing that child to live to its fullest potential.

 

Because someone is physically weaker than us or does not communicate in a way that we can understand, does not give us the right to violently push them into a forgotten corner and walk away.

 

In any other case, when a group of people want the right to end the life of another group this nation cry’s outrage and runs in to save the day with guns blazing, but in the case of those who have not been given a voice yet, we are willing to allow them to be dealt with in some of the most inhumane ways imaginable. What is wrong with our people? Have we become so reliant on immediate self gratification that we can’t imagine a few short months of trying to live a better life, living a life for a greater cause then our own?

 

Pull your head out America, and give these children the voice they deserve to have.

 

God Bless.
