A recent discussion on interconnected social problems and the resulting polarization of our society brought forth the suggestion that many of us, including many of the Christians and Catholics reading this, may be responsible at least in part for abortions. While many pro-life people would deny this, I invite you to follow the logic with me and see what we find.
Our Polarized Society
It was the demographers that first publicized our polarized society and related interconnected social problems. They pointed out that in several major elections they could predict voting based the fertility level of a state or area. Those states with the highest fertility levels traditionally swung to the right and voted for conservative candidates and conservative issues while those states with the lowest fertility levels traditionally swung to the left and voted for liberal candidates and liberal issues. Two things are immediately noteworthy. One is that the basis for this is fertility level, which translates into bringing children into the world. The second thing to note is that this question on children tends to polarize our society into the right and the left. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner- By Larry Plachno-Sustainability has recently become an attractive catchword in business and industry. In addition to the obvious meaning that a particular procedure or product can be ongoing or continuous, it also tends to carry the connotations of being healthy and eco-friendly.
Our society is no longer sustainable due in large part to abortion and related actions or attitudes. In fact, our society has become unsustainable in three different ways. One is that we can no longer agree on good and evil or common goals. The second is that we have moved to harming society rather than supporting it. And the third is that because of abortion and related actions we have become an endangered species and our society is dying out.
You probably will not find any of these three critical items discussed in the mainstream media to any extent. Yes, topics will come up from time to time but their negative impact on our society is rarely mentioned and little will be said about abortion and related decisions and actions as the cause.

Rarely does a day go by without someone asking: How did we get into this mess? We are facing all kinds of social problems including poverty, homelessness, crime and broken homes. Some nationalities are starting to disappear off the face of the earth because of substantially dwindling fertility rates while people are increasingly unable to work together because they no longer have common goals.
Would it surprise you to know that researchers and demographers predicted all of these things decades ago? The problem is that we failed to listen to them because we did not want to talk about good and evil, we did not want to talk about doing what is best for society, we did not want to talk about putting others first, and we certainly did not want to talk about Jesus Christ. Our failure to think about and consider the effects and the consequences of our decisions and actions is what got us into this mess. Continue reading →

ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno–January 22, 2013 marks 40 years since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The sheer evil of this holocaust that has taken the lives of millions of innocent unborn babies is mind-boggling.
