t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Happy Birthday Roe v. Wade

Last week we celebrated the 37th birthday of Roe vs Wade and with it eclipsed the 52 millionth killing of an unborn child. Congratulations to our civilized country. Ponder the following actions/policies of the US government couched under the auspices of caring for others:

  • We pay single mothers, in the form of free housing and monthly stipends, to have more children. Of course the fathers must be kept out of the home or these mothers wouldn't qualify for government assistance.
  • We continue with wars of aggression in opposition to the non-interventionist policy our Founding Fathers set up under the Constitution. These invasions/occupations kill millions of innocent foreign civilians. All this to “protect” US citizens.

Maybe we aren’t surprised this country will not cease the unborn slaughter that occurs within our borders thousands of times a day. These killings are mainly performed by Planned Parenthood (affiliates performed 305,310 abortions in 2007, up from 289,750 in 2006).

According to wikipedia "Planned Parenthood receives about a third of its money in government grants and contracts ($349.6 million in FY 2008). In the 2007–08 Annual Report, clinic income totaled $374.7 million and miscellaneous operating revenues $68.9 million. Planned Parenthood is also heavily sponsored by private individuals, with over 700,000 active individual contributors.[7] Large donors such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation contribute a substantial part of the organization's budget."

Does Eugenics ring a bell? The Eugenics movement of Nineteenth century Communist Manifesto authors, Marx and Engels is alive and well today under the less diabolical name of Planned Parenthood.

Let's celebrate. Go buy a Gates owned computer product to help support the cause, better yet, support and encourage your congressmen and senators to act and VOTE more like Ron Paul, the congressmen who has done more to support human life and anti-abortion than many others combined.

How can we protect liberty when we can't protect life?

Awesome post! I was watching the news the other night about a football player who supports along with his mother anti-abortion because she was told to abort the baby because of him "being sick" and possibly killing her. She had a very strong faith in God and felt through prayer that her and her baby would be just fine. This sweet football player who is open about his belief in God wants to air on national TV for the super bowl how thankful he is for his Mother's faith and her choice not abort him. As you can guess, all the supporters of abortion are going crazy trying to make it so they can't air "such a horrible" thing on TV! Heaven forbid we promote faith in God and saving lives! Thanks for sharing this!
