    Pandora's box has been opened. It can't be closed again. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall, and is broken. Humpty Dumpty can't be put back together again.

    The Federal Government has declared that it has the right to order us to pay for the prevention of conception and then to pay for the destruction of life, if that prevention was not effective. It has told us that it has absolutely no respect for the value of an unborn fetus nor for the life that would be created if conception were allowed.

    What does that indicate for the government's thoughts on the value of the rest of us? Are we only going to be "valuable" if we vote the correct way? Are we only going to be "valuable" if we are tax providers and not tax users?

    The government has already shown total disrespect for life, now all that remains is to see where it places limits on whose life is important.

    The crocodile tears being shed by the government today because it wants to limit the age at which a sexually active young woman can buy the "morning after pill" is hypocrisy at its highest.

    What is interesting is that it is not just the courts. The FDA announced earlier this month that the contraception could be sold without a prescription to those 15 and older. The FDA belongs to the Obama administration and they were hoping to have this become an acceptable practice without much publicity. However, if you are not governing as a President, things happen that are moral values against humanity even after going through public comment periods. He is trying to minimize the impact of the FDA or his decision by filing an appeal with Sebilius acting as his agent, now.

    Mores are known for people that are born in a country. Constitutional law professors who are Presidents are committed and sworn to be upholders of the Constitution, whatever, that means. This guy has driven the stake into many hearts of the unborn by his executive declarations. He is different than Solomon using his sword.

    At least he has so many issues with public opinion against him, in this moral case, maybe the Senators and House candidates are saying to him, you had better not ruin my chances to get elected next time. Politics makes strange bed fellows.
