Abortion is still the great lie of our times

Last week marked the 40th anniversary of the US Supreme Court's infamous, reckless and inhumane abandonment of women and babies to abortionists.

Abortion is the great lie of our times.

Governments and mainstream media have gone to great lengths to hide the fact that abortion is really murder.

Our politicians will not engage in any meaningful debate to confirm when life truly begins.

Nor will you see any actual footage of an abortion on TV, among all the other gratuitous violence found there.

The reality behind this new and timid lying morality is that human life begins at conception with the creation of a zygote - the first, embryonic stage of existence.

This zygote contains the full genetic instructions that will guide the development of the human person through the continuum of stages we call foetus, baby, child, adult and old person.

Someday, future generations will look back and wonder how and why such a seemingly enlightened society that prided itself on being just, compassionate, and diverse could have been such a perpetrator of a culture of death.
