Who's Next?

I was reading over at Townhall.com this morning, and came across Cal Thomas's offering for today:
How About a Stimulus for Life .

I feel so very sad and actually frightened at the coming storms. I know I don't need to be, I'm working hard to be prepared, both physically and Spiritually. I know God will win the battle.
What Mr. Thomas describes is evil, pure and simple.
If someone is not allowed medical care, and they die before their time, what eternal lessons will be lost? What won't that person know or learn, that they may have needed to know or learn before they pass through the veil? What won't those around them learn about compassion and love?

I know with every fiber of my being that there is more to us than this short span of earth life. We are sent here to grow and learn, to see if we will be faithful and trust our Heavenly Father. People are murdered everyday, and the murderer will have to answer for whatever the victim didn't accomplish, I know all this.
But what about the person who is left to die at the hands of those he or she trusted.
There are lessons to be learned for them, and for us, those who care for the dying and otherwise infirm. Patience, charity, long suffering, love; all these lessons and more. Heavenly Father is in charge. The Lord told Joseph Smith in D&C 121 "All these things shall give thee experience and be for thy good." The Lord knows what he's doing. We have to stop playing god.

We have for over 30 years let the most vulnerable among us be killed. "They" are stepping up their efforts with partial birth abortion, or worse yet, letting those born alive during "botched" abortions die.

Who's next? I'm overweight and have high blood pressure. Yes, easily prevented by my actions, or better said, inaction, but when will Big Brother decide I'm a liability?
My dad is also heavier,and 70. When will he be deemed a liability?
I have some friends who have a darling son born with Downs Syndrome. Is he next?

When will the madness stop? Obviously the picketing of hospitals and clinics doesn't work. It saves a life here and there, and that is miraculous in itself, but more is needed. A change of heart; a change of attitude.

One thing we need to do, is to learn all we can about alternative medications and the herbs and plants that Heavenly Father has given us. It's no accident that the earth is abundant in vegetation that will help us, heal us. Start learning what you need to know about them, because you DO need to know; you may come down with something that is not 'cost effective to treat'.
Second, treat your body right. Feed it good foods, and yes Dad, that means broccoli occasionally ;) Whole grains, grass fed beef, pure foods. Our bodies aren't supposed to wear out so easily, let's make sure we become a burden to Big Brother by defying all the odds.

Next, we must oppose those who have even the slightest leanings toward Eugenics of any kind, and those who support abortion in any form aside from the life of the mother being in danger, or in cases of rape and incest; abortion for convenience sake must stop. We can't sit by and watch them be elected to positions of importance or policy making.

Lastly, but most importantly, Pray. Pray for a change of hearts and minds. God can work mighty miracles, he just wants to know that we want them, and that we appreciate them.

Very nice. Prayer brings about blessings. As a nation we really need to heed that truth and become united.
