We cannot continue to avoid this question. How did we as a society come to a point where on February 25th, 2019 the United State’s Senate actually blocked a bill protecting infants that are born alive from being allowed to simply die on a table with no help?
The root of this issue started on July 19th, 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York with the first women’s rights convention. After this conference new rights were given to women in divorce making divorce easier and less painful for women which lead to a spike in divorces even before the passage of Woman’s Suffrage in 1920.
Women from 1848 and forward began to rebel against the authority of their fathers and their husbands. This led to the rejection of courtship and the embrace of the new practice of dating. Dating led to rampant sex outside of marriage and a jump in out of wedlock births which eventually peaked at what we have today which is a 40 percent out-wedlock birth rate.
This change to woman-centric marriages and relationships also lead to a 53 percent divorce rate at its peak in the 1980’s. After divorce rates peaked at 53 percent the next generation began rejecting marriage and even dating became dysfunctional to the point that in our current culture 60 percent of people ages 18-34 are not married.
So, we can see the natural progression.
Giving women more rights and control over their lives, bodies and who they married led to more divorce, more sex outside of marriage, more children born out of wedlock, abortion and finally now in 2019 legalized infanticide.
When will we admit the root of all this evil? When will we admit that overturning God’s design and his social order of men ruling over women was a colossal mistake? How far must we go as a society before we will come to our senses? Will our civilization have to collapse before we will undo all the rights we have given to women since the Seneca Falls convention in 1848?
