What sad times for New Hampshire

Let's see, maybe laying out a timeline will make this the most readily apparent.

  • April 11: Senator Gregg (R-NH) votes for the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007 allowing federal money to be used to murder babies in the name of a singularly unproven overreach by amoral scientists who have found a new fiscal teat from which to suckle.
  • April 18: What should otherwise be a joyful occasion as the Supreme Court upholds the ban on partial birth abortions is stained by the dissent of, among others, New Hampshire's own Justice David Souter.
  • April 19: Our illustrious Governor John Lynch has announced he intends to sign legislation establishing civil unions in the state. This after the now Democrat-run House and Senate have promised to roll back the parental notification law that was the source of the Supreme Court case last year. State Republican Chairman Fergus Cullens put it succinctly: "The Democrats are going too far, too fast and Governor Lynch is going along with them," he said. "These are not the actions of a moderate governor." Nor, I might add, are they the actions of a moderate government working to protect and serve the greater interests of its electorate.
Sadly, things don't look like they're likely to get much better around here any time soon. It was not long ago when the parental consent law was a given and it was allowed to question the propriety of abortion clinics in residential areas. It is amazing how one election can change things...

This should serve as a reminder to anyone reading to never, never take one's vote for granted. Thanks to the disastrous knee-jerk reaction election of 2006, millions of babies' (sorry, I'll use the word "baby" even where others might succumb to the more palatable "fetus") lives are at risk, a dent is put in the coffin of a heinous and wretched act of pure murder, and the spiritual welfare of those suffering from a disordered inclination has been given the green light for landing at the newly revamped Sodom Airport. It is amazing the destruction Hell can unleash in only six months. Pray for us, brethren, this is going to be a difficult time for anyone who loves Truth and lives in this state.
