Tis the season for holiday classics and reflection on the world around us.
"It's a Wonderful Life" is one of our favorite movies. But you can't accept the premise of the film (that if we simply try our best to lead good lives, the world will be better for it than we might ever know) without also accepting that the Abortion Holocaust in this country (over 50 million since 1973) is likely depriving us of more good deeds, good people, and potential improvements to society than we can ever know.
Not that every fetus would necessarily grow up to be a George Bailey. But if you don't at least believe in the potential of a fetus - or a newborn - to become someone decent and of consequence, then you've hardened your heart to life itself.
But if you do believe in that potential, then you'll grieve the loss of so many lives. And mourn the millions of unborn who, unlike George Bailey, never got the chance to say "I want to live!"
