Whacky, weird and woeful

Headlines make me nuts, and then when I read the stories my head spins. What in the world has happened to pro-life ethical principles? I would guess they went south at the same time the Republican Party decided to water down their commitment to anything even remotely resembling absolute differences between right and wrong.

Take this headline: "U.S. Senator Brownback calls for a limit to the number of embryos created during IVF." Hmmm! Why would a "pro-life" senator call for limiting the number of human beings "created" in a lab rather than simply solving the problem by calling for a total ban on in vitro fertilization? What could he be thinking?

Or take this headline: "Florida Governor Bush signs bill to regulate second trimester abortions." Excuse me? Does this mean that some second trimester acts of killing the preborn are ok? No, actually, it means that the abortion mills where these older babies are being killed will have to be "regulated." Mind you, it's OK to continue the killing, but please get in line with your cleanliness.

Oh my! Whacky, weird and woeful. Such a condition is so deplorable that one can only praise God that He is ultimately in charge.
