Roger’s view from the hills: The greatest lost generation


     This subject is one that is so polarizing that very seldom can you get those on both sides to talk about without huge amounts of emotion and conflict.  I ask that you who will take the time to read this to it’s finish will reflect on it’s intent before the storms erupt.
      Just consider, the United States has allowed legal Abortions since the Roe vs. Wade case and the number of children destroyed is now over 50,000,000.  It is a wonder, in many of the law profession, that the original case has not been overturned.  Many agree that it was a terrible case to use as the basis of legalizing abortion.  Many think that there were better cases to base the Supreme Courts attention on.  Even the original subject of the suit has changed sides and now advocates for Pro Life.
      Those who support legalization are happy with the fact that there has not been a solid challenge to come along so far.  Those in support are so happy that the case has stood up that there is an ingrained legitimacy for a large number of people to accept the existence of it as an unassailable right.
      Medical ethicists at the major medical university in Australia have made suggestions that post birth abortion would be acceptable.  This giving 6 months to kill the child for medical cause.  This not bringing an huge outcry and has led to a major Northeastern University to have a ‘medical ethics class’ start to advocate that up to the age of 5 would be acceptable.
     Lets stop and consider what 50 million lives have cost us as a nation.  We can consider 50 million souls as pretty much a lost generation.  Many Earth Firsters, radical feminists, radical green groups, and many more consider a loss of 50 million lives as a slowing of the overpopulation of the world.  These groups look at the human population as cochroaches destroying the world as it should be.
      If you hold with the belief that God is in charge and that each life has purpose and a vocation, what have we done as a major affront to the way that things are supposed to be?
A mathematician can compute into a law of averages the number of advanced people that consistently are a part of each generation.  Taking the progress that mankind has made over time and the happenings in history it would be pretty hard to dispute that when 50 million lives are taken a percentage of exceptional lives are lost.
If you are of the belief that as scripture says that God has counted the numbers on your head long before you were conceived.  Then you have to believe that there is a destiny for each life and man is a pretty poor judge of what is good for itself.
I have known the lab assistant of Dr. Salk who cracked the code and brought the plague of polio to the end for the generations who lived in fear of it.  Have we lost the doctor or technician that will finally cure cancer, MS, or Muscular Dystrophy?  Did we lose a future president, the first American Pope, the person who frees us from dependence on fossil fuel?
Or the researcher that advances agriculture past today’s amazing capacity and feeds these billions of people that are so feared that the population control argument could be laid to rest?
I am a simple mind and I read into the rather short pages of the founding of our republic and the Constitution and Bill of Rights and fail to see how the millions of decisions made about things like Abortion and many other things not specifically mentioned are considered a part of the legacy of our justice system.
I am no lawyer, thank God, and prefer to speak in relative common terms and apply the basics of civil conduct and not the legalese that everything seems to be turned into.  Can you look me in the eye and believe that it is in any one’s best interest that this Greatest Lost Generation is to our benefit?
As another point of view what was the original point of advocating for birth control were when Margret Sanger began the crusade of the Planned Parenthood began?  What were the targets of the movement?  What was the results of the movement?  Evolving from this also came the Eugenics movement.  How did the Eugenics from the US influence Hitler’s ultimate solution in Europe?
At the risk of being cliche’, are you not glad that your parents did not choose to abort you?
The predictions are that the next industrial revolution will happen in the next ten years.  The last one took one hundred years.  It seems that it is going to take some getting use to the changes coming.  We may wish for a few of those lost lives for what is ahead.
