Honoring the Dead

Remembering-1 copy

This week thousands of Filipinos would be going home to their families in the provinces in order to visit their loveds who have passed away. We honor the dead because neither time nor death can ever surpass love.  This is a beautiful Filipino tradition that we hold on to.

To speak of the dead, we can’t help but mention those who have died in the hands of those who were supposed to take care of them, namely mothers and doctors. Yes, we are referring to the millions of babies aborted around the world just because the mother decided it’s going to be her body and her choice, to the detriment of the baby who had no choice at all.

RH supporters would deny the fact that abortion really starts with the widespread distribution of contraception by the government, and that abortion is the result of a contraceptive mentality.  The logic of the contraceptive mentality is easy to understand: If a couple does not want a baby before and during the sex, what makes RH supporters believe that the couple will want the baby after sex and after the contraceptive failed?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a brief history of abortion in the United States.

“Birth control” is a term that describes any method used to prevent a woman from getting pregnant. Beginning in the 1800s, laws in the United States prohibited birth control, when temperance and anti-vice groups advocated outlawing birth control devices and information about birth control devices. These groups considered birth control information to be obscene, a belief that was popular enough that in 1873, Congress passed the Comstock Act outlawing the dissemination of birth control devices or information through the mail. Most states followed suit by passing their own laws outlawing the advertising, sale, and distribution, of contraception.

The turn of the century brought increasing attention to issues involving women’s rights. Margaret Sanger, who we all know was a strong advocate of birth control, opened the country’s first birth control clinic in New York City in 1916, and was prosecuted for violating New York’s version of the Comstock Act. She served a 30-day sentence in a workhouse but later established the National Committee for Federal Legislation for Birth Control. Sanger proposed a federal bill that outlined the health and death risks to women who underwent illegal abortions or who completed unwanted pregnancies. The bill sought to reverse the federal position prohibiting birth control, but under pressure from religious groups such as the Catholic Church, Congress did not pass Sanger’s bill.

Sanger then sought to challenge the Comstock Act by sending contraception through the mail to a doctor. Her actions were prosecuted, but she achieved her goal when a federal district court deemed that the Comstock Act did not prohibit the mailing of contraceptives when such an act could save a life or promote the health of a doctor’s patients (RH proponents also swear that contraceptives can be used to save a woman’s life. What a coincidence!). Sanger continued to lead a growing national movement advocating more information and access to birth control, and in 1921 she founded the American Birth Control League.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 1942, the American Birth Control League became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, still in existence today (again, from contraception to abortion. Such a predictable pattern). Planned Parenthood advocates for a range of safe, legal, and accessible birth control options. In the 1950s, Sanger and Planned Parenthood supported the research efforts of Dr. Gregory Pincus, which led to the development of the birth control pill. The birth control pill revolutionized family planning, and by the 1960s popular opinion was shifting in favor of making contraception and information about contraception readily available.

In 1966, the federal government — with an endorsement by U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson — began public funding of contraception services for low-income families. President Richard M. Nixon in 1970 signed into law an act promoting research of population and family planning issues. Finally, in 1971, Congress repealed the key elements of the Comstock Act.

Some states kept birth control laws despite the repeal of the federal Comstock Act. In 1972, the Supreme Court found unconstitutional a Massachusetts law that only permitted married couples to receive contraception. The Court held that this law violated the equal protection rights of single persons. In 1977, the Court addressed a New York state law that permitted only physicians to distribute contraceptives to minors under the age of sixteen, and only physicians or pharmacists to distribute contraceptives to adults. The Court struck down this law as well. It became clear that the Supreme Court viewed as constitutionally protected the right of an individual — married or unmarried — to make personal decisions regarding whether to have children.

Of course, by this time, we have all know the repercussions of not having children, as countries who have thread the slippery slope of contraception, sex education, and abortion are now in the verge of demographic collapse through demographic winter. But this is beyond the point.

The point here is that a mere two years after the repeal of the Comstock Act, Roe V. Wade exploded into the scene, and it was decided through that ruling that women had the right to kill their own babies.  The point here is that Margaret Sanger went from merely giving the option for contraceptives to founding Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion provider in the United States.

The point here is that 54 million or more American babies have fallen victim to abortion since Roe V. Wade in 1973. They have never seen the light of day.

The point here is that if we’re not vigilant, our country will most likely repeal all abortion laws, just like the United States did, resulting in the massacre of millions of Filipino babies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore, we honor the dead by fighting ferociously for the life of every unborn child threatened by abortion. We honor the dead by working tirelessly to promote the culture of life so that mothers need not resort to abortion just because they think it is the only way out.

We honor the dead by defending life.
