from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
One thing we know about progressive ideas is that they must always advance. It’s the very meaning of progress – it must always be moving forward, although the “forward” part is debatable.
And so it is with progressive legislation, or regulation. Progressive legislation passed or regulations mandated never begin as onerous as the author envisions, or first reveals.
The eventuality is always worse than its commencement. This is the progressive modus operandi. American history is replete with examples of this progress, like Social Security, welfare, unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.
All of these initiatives were originally proposed as “common sense” and “limited,” only to morph and multiple over time into massive and burdensome programs, stretching well beyond their initially intended scope.
I bring this up because just a few days ago, on Jan. 22, 2019, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill/amendment to legalize abortion on demand all the way up until birth. In other words, full-term abortions. It appears that now that a doctor can literally destroy an infant as the baby is passing through the birth canal on his or her way out, and worse. This amendment to the New York State Constitution also repeals protections for babies born alive due to botched abortions. And there will be more of those, as the amendment also permits non-doctors to perform abortions. What could go wrong?
Margaret Sanger, the racist founder of Planned Parenthood, would rejoice in this news, as already, “More African-American Babies are Aborted Than Born Alive in New York City.”
If this weren’t perverse and demonic enough, progressive doctrine dictates that it cannot, and therefore will not, end there.
