The battlefield for morality is played in the future, not in the present. We see many things that are being decided and we wonder where they are coming from, but we forget that those that hold the levers of power now are children of a time that encouraged “free love” and other such things. We are reaping what was sown.
For some time now, those that would have a more permissive, more pluralistic society have been sowing these thoughts in practices in the minds of children for decades now– ever since they tried to kick God out of the school. What replaced God was the humanist agenda and beliefs, and we are reaping that.
The problem is, the monopoly has been broken, and no clearer is that seen than in the Pro-Life movement. It’s true that the number of children born to pro-life parents is far greater than those born to pro-abortion parents, but that doesn’t account for the overwhelming support of life seen in the next generation. What you are now seeing the results of is, in part, thanks to an abstinence based education. To say that it is the only factor would be naieve. Certainly there diseases, and the abstinence plus movement does has some contribution. That said, it is getting harder and harder for a pro-abortion mindset to exist because there is pressure from every angle.
You see, parents, you may not have that big of an impact now– personally. You do have an impact through your children and the children your children touch. You have an impact with your morals, your beliefs, and what you will tolerate. Your values are multiplied through your children– and are a direct result of how many you have and how you raise them.
What the Pro-Life movement should teach us in their success with the next generation is just how powerful reaching kids can be and that we should be more careful about those whom we trust their education and upbringing.
