Pathway in the Sea
Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

Dear Mr. Prager, et.al
(Dennis Prager asked the question on the air of how some individual could transcend partisan politics on the issue of abortion, among others. I did not catch to whom he was referring, but here are my thoughts on the subject.)
It is the professed position of the "pro-life" movement (which, in my estimation, has degenerated into a political action and litigation racket that is devoid of any motive other than perpetual trench warfare and money-making) that the unborn have a constitutional "right to life". I share that view.
It is the professed position of the "pro-choice" movement that a woman has the constitutional right to commit doctor-assisted homicide in the womb at will, and it is "unconstitutional" for the state to intervene or interfere with her "right to privacy". (Although air travellers apparently do not enjoy this same constitutional protection. Interesting how our modern judicial system applies and interprets the U.S. Constitution, isn't it?) One of their (pro-choice) slogans is an enjoinder to "Keep abortion safe and legal! "
I propose the following resolution to function as binding arbitration between the two camps and the parties heretofore of standing in all cases of application for legal abortions, to wit: the father, the mother, and most emphatically, the child.
In short, when a woman applies for permission to surgically terminate a pregnancy through a physician supervised abortion procedure, the following criteria must be met and legally certified upon penalty of death:
She must be irreversibly sterilized and surgically prevented from conceiving any children subsequent to the legal termination, via abortion, of the child that is the subject of the application.
She must identify the father, and his paternity certified via amnio-syntesis and DNA testing, and the father must be irreversibly sterilized and surgically prevented from conceiving any children subsequent to the legal termination, via abortion, of the child that is the subject of the application.
If the father wishes to fulfill the offices, duties and responsibilities of a parent for the child, then the application for a legal abortion shall be denied, the pregnancy carried to term, and exclusive legal and physical custody
of the child granted to the father, and the mother shall be irreversibly sterilized and surgically prevented from conceiving any children subsequent to the application for a legal abortion.
In no case shall an application for a legal abortion be granted to a minor child. Pertinent criminal law shall apply to the parents or legal guardians of said minor child and the father of any child that would be the subject of such application.
All abortions performed subsequent to the enactment of this arbitration that are not granted under the terms of this arbitration shall be deemed a capital offense punishable by death, and all persons complicit in the act and failing to report it to the appropriate authorities shall be held equally liable upon conviction of said complicity in a court of law.
It is the opinion of this court that persons that choose to engage in recreational sexual activity may do so freely and without constraint with other consenting adults, except where otherwise prohibited by law. In light of advancements in the variety and availability of contraception and public awareness concerning sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy, (which awareness this court hereby orders and affirms as part of the public's civic and ethical duty,) competent adults that conceive an unwanted child are grossly negligent and irresponsible, and, if they choose to remain so, may not subject any future offspring to the excesses of their negligence and irresponsibility.
In other words, they can spawn like frogs in a pond, but the wanton shedding of innocent blood in the name of "choice" and in the interest of big business, shall cease in the United States of America.
In summary, abortion shall be safe and legal so long as it is LAWFUL. As it is practiced in America today, it is simply AWFUL.
Opposition to this arbitration on the part of the pro-life camp shall be deemed support for perpetuation of a pointless, trench warfare stalemate.
Opposition to this arbitration on the part of the pro-choice camp shall be deemed support for keeping abortion "sacrosanct and plentiful".
I call Heaven to witness this ruling and invoke the blood of Jesus Christ to release the Authority of Heaven to intervene in these matters. Blessed be His Holy Name.
Court is adjourned.
