Reverence for Life

Ah, yes…another “Save the whales” campaign compared with the abortion statistics.

Well, not whales…actually it is “Save the pelican.” One pelican. On the Golden Gate Bridge. In the middle of the day.

And all the cars stopped and waited for the police to come and rescue the poor bird.

Note the bike riders within a few feet of him. How hard would it be for one of them to shoo him out of the way? Instead two squad cars were dispatched to the scene.

No traffic was stopped for the 208,430 abortions performed in California in 2005. Except maybe to protest the right to kill a fetus. That’s about 27% of all pregnancies in the state.

I stumbled upon a 1946 Time Magazine article. It seems that San Francisco was the place to go if you wanted an abortion in those days. For example, in 1945 there were 18,000 abortions and 16,400 live births.

Listen to the tone of this article: “Fists flying, the D.A. was wading into a sordid abortion racket which he claims lures pregnant women to the Golden Gate city from all over the West Coast.” Time’s changed.

But we’ve certainly developed a love for innocent creatures…like pelicans in traffic.

  5. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both
    educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something relating to

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
