“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

reductio ad absurdum n. proof of falsity by showing absurd logical consequence

Our culture is a death culture. We uphold the perverse right to kill our wanted preborn children, or the old, sick and disabled should they give up on life and become suicidal. 
(106 BC-46 BC)

Our culture is a throw away culture. We throw away everything including unwanted children. But we must ask, Unwanted by whom? No child deserves to be abandoned to an abortionist or a garbage heap. Cicero's words are as applicable today as the day they were uttered thousands of years ago: "While there's life, there's hope." Our culture would do well to heed his wisdom, whether life is at its beginning or drawing to a close. Never give up of life -- whether your own or another. 

I remember seeing a shocking and sad photograph of a baby thrown out with the refuse: The reductio ad absurdum of  "pro-choice". Someone picked the baby up with arms of love and gave him hope and a future.

"Choose life that you and your descendants may live."
