On May 14, 1969, Omnibus Bill C-150, the legislation decriminalizing contraception, abortion, and homosexuality, passed as law in Canadian Parliament (Votes: 149-55). For the next 40 years, the moral and social fibre of our country has been steadily eroded as millions of unborn children have been mercilessly slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs.
While our politicians and judges either mouth platitudes of opposition, or work actively to ensure this deadly sacrifice continues year after year and decade after decade, the cry of the innocents goes unheard. It’s the silent scream that we would rather not hear. Natural justice is denied to the most defenseless human being in the most dangerous place to be in Canada: a mother’s womb.
The country’s Catholic bishops have also played their part in this tragedy. On September 27, 2008, they too will mark a 40th anniversary of sorts. That’s the day when our spiritual fathers published the Winnipeg Statement, the most destructive Catholic document ever written in the English language. It provided the foothold for the culture of death and abortion in Canada, and ironically came from the one institution that is supposed to uphold the sanctity of the family.
Every societal indicator of a healthy society has shown that Canada is a social disaster zone. Abortion rates continue to skyrocket, as does family breakdown, drug abuse, violence, addiction to pornography, and every sort of social malady imaginable.
And while Canada continues to disintegrate, the media pundits and the politicians promote foolish and idiotic solutions to the nation’s problems while willfully ignoring the real reason why Canada is destroying itself.
Without a genuine respect for human life and the natural family, and the concomitant reflection of that respect in law, the Canadian social fabric, like an unborn child’s flesh during an abortion, will continue to tear and bleed until there is nothing left. It is a fallacy to believe a nation can willfully and legally destroy its own children without also destroying itself.
Do we not have eyes to see what is happening to Canada today? Are we so blinded by our decadence and selfishness that we will let ourselves descend into the basest depravity before we are thoroughly destroyed as a country; where even now our basic civil rights are being threatened by foreign ideologies and religions because we refuse to rear our own children and pass down our traditions?
Canada has become a barren desert of murderous self-indulgence. We’ve been on a suicide trip for the past 40 years, but we all know that it cannot go on indefinitely. Legislated murder which is approved by a spineless political class and supported by a complicit marshmallow population can only go on so long before some serious and rather irreversable consequences happen.
Is it too late? Perhaps. But May 14, 2009 may be a new beginning for this country. 40 years in the desert can come to an end — or at least the beginning of the end — if we really want to enter the promised land.
Pray for it. Sacrifice for it. Work for it.
