Would You Let EVERYONE Drown, Or Save Whoever You Can?

Imagine for a moment - You are on a small personal fishing boat, when you come across a disaster scene: A larger boat with hundreds of people has capsized, and you are surrounded by desperate, drowning people with no other boats in sight. Adding to the horror is that most of the passengers are children. They are struggling to keep their heads up. You radio for help but the water is cold and the waves are picking up. Most of these children will drown before more help arrives.

You know you cannot fit all of the children on your little boat, but you can get a lot of them. So what do you do? 

Do you brave the waves and save as many children as you can, or do you turn and speed away because you can’t save them all?

It’s a grim scenario. I realize that. And it’s not precisely on point but it’s close enough to reflect the position many of the pro-lifers and  Republican politicians are taking on abortion. Refusal to find some common ground with the abortion advocates is resulting in lost elections and more infant deaths. 

So many voters concede, for instance, that they would support a ban on abortions later in a pregnancy’s term. So if, for example, we can at least temporarily find some pause on this issue with a ban on abortions past, say, 20 weeks - that is about halfway through a pregnancy and there is some research indicating a baby feels pain at this point. The baby looks like a baby, at about the size of a bell pepper. Moms will feel their baby moving, the baby might suck its thumb, too. 

Statistics on abortions this far in term vary between just over 620,000 and one million, with around 1 % of abortions reported on babies 20 weeks and over. 

So out of hundreds of thousands or a million abortions, somewhere between 6,000- 10,000 lives would be saved with this legislation.

Is it enough? 


But if we ask those 6,000- 10,000 people at some point in their lives, I bet they’d be grateful. Likewise for their children, grandchildren, and lives, they have impacted. And what about the policies that would be changed and more lives impacted, by removing what is basically the only battle cry the Democrats have for their base, for which abortion appears to be its religion? Would any of the states that have since enshrined abortion as an irrevocable right in their states, have done so otherwise? When we remove that from the table, I believe we not only start by saving some lives, but begin swinging the pendulum back towards American core values, closed borders, and freedom, as more Democrats lose power. 

We are doing something.

Isn’t it better to take a small step forward than no steps? Isn’t it better to save some lives, instead of no lives?

I am far from an expert on this topic. I know only what I’ve researched, and what I see out there. And what I see is women and men cheering for full-term abortions, laughing about it, holding celebrations, and lighting up historical towers in honor of a woman’s legal right to murder her infant in her own womb.

Stop the boat. Save as many as we can now, and build momentum to save more along the way.

US Air Force officer Madison Marsh is crowned Miss America.

Miss Colorado Madison Marsh, a second lieutenant in the Air Force, traded her flight helmet for a tiara after she won the Miss America pageant on Sunday night.

The 22-year-old Arkansas native became the first active-duty Air Force officer to compete in the Miss America pageant.

Marsh graduated from the US Air Force Academy in June and was selected for training to become a military pilot. She's working on a two-year master's degree program in public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

While enrolled at the US Air Force Academy, Marsh was drawn to pageant competitions as an extracurricular activity from her desire to do community service and public speaking.

"As a freshman at the academy, you might have a hard time finding your identity in a very new and challenging environment," Marsh told the Air Force Institute of Technology. "My cousin had competed in pageants for a long time, and one of the big things about it that I love is the community service aspect and the focus on public speaking."

Three years later, she was crowned Miss Colorado just days before graduating from USAFA and receiving her commission as a second lieutenant. The 22-year-old attends Harvard Kennedy School with the AFIT's Civilian Institution Programs, studying public policy. She's also set to participate in research on the early detection of pancreatic cancer at the Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Her mother died from pancreatic cancer in 2018, prompting Marsh's advocacy for patient care and research through the nonprofit named after her mom, the Whitney Marsh Foundation.

BREAKING REPORT: Texas Governor Greg Abbott issues statement DEFYING The Supreme Court…

"The federal government has BROKEN THE COMPACT between the United States and the States. I have already declared an invasion under Article I, § 10, Clause 3 to invoke Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. That authority is the supreme law of the land and SUPERSEDES any federal statutes to the contrary."

NEW: Vermont State Police trooper heroically saves an 8-year-old girl from a freezing cold pond after she fell through the ice. The State Trooper, Michelle Archer was seen on footage plunging into the freezing pond to rescue the child.

The girl’s 6-year-old sibling was also rescued by a nearby homeowner.

Thanks to Archer’s heroic actions, the girl was able to make a full recovery and has returned home.

"As their Commander, I could not be more proud of Trooper Michelle Archer and Trooper Keith Cote. Their swift actions and efforts were selfless and heroic," said State Police Lt. Cory Lozier.

"Both Troopers responded to the scene within minutes of the call and immediately went into action, with zero hesitation or regard for their own safety. Because of their actions that day, a very young girl is alive and well."


This would be a bestseller in Hollywood.

And likely a few thousand other things as well but ability, Intelligence, talent etc all seem far more important.

Was it as good for you as it was for us? Make sure you tell all your friends so they don’t miss out next week! 🇺🇸
