Former head of NARAL Nancy Keenan lamented in 2010 the huge lack of young people in the pro-abortion movement

When you kill thirty to forty percent of babies still in the womb, those kinds of things tend to happen!

This past week, the Chicago Teachers Union – which has been publicly and officially pro-abortion, for the past thirty years or so  – is lamenting the fact that around 1000 teachers will be losing their jobs, this year. This is on top of some 400 teaching jobs lost, about two years ago.

Now, these are supposed to be highly educated people. Their chosen profession is (in theory) the education of young people. You would think they would be able to understand that it would be much easier to keep their jobs if people stopped aborting babies. But no – it’s “bloody” business as usual in Chicago’s abortion industry – but now the teacher’s union is hemorrhaging, as well.

The “official” reason the teachers are losing their jobs is the state’s financial crisis, so here’s another cold, hard fact for pro-abortion, Illinois politicians: Dead babies never grow up to pay taxes – and they never have a chance to contribute to the state’s economy – all of which makes it very difficult for a pro-abortion liberal state to grow out of its’ financial problems.

Chicago politicians are evidently, no better at math than the teachers. That would be funny, if it wasn’t so tragic. Need I mention the fact that Barack Obama hails from Illinois?

Greece now consigned to a new type of (Socialist) debtor’s prison

Factions inside the European Commission are discussing proposals to make defaulting states “wards” of the Commission, effectively ending national sovereignty for indebted states.  Each “ward” would be assigned a budget officer who would oversee spending in the geographical area under his or her direction.

How is this to be tolerated on a continent that once prized freedom and accountable, democratic government?  American victory in World War II seems overshadowed by the willful acquiescence to despotic rule which now characterizes European political organization.  The world watches with bated breath as European nations line up to surrender precious, historic freedom to Brussels.  And Greece, the cradle of democracy, is next on the menu.
