Time for a reminder

The time will come when future generations look back in horror that we ever allowed the aborting of babies in a similar fashion, though with a greater abhorrence, to the way we look back in horror at the time when our nation considered others to be less than human because of the colour of their skin. The difference will be, to my mind, that those who compromise with evil now are guilty of a crime of greater magnitude than those who compromised a century and a half ago. Every political compromise should be taken with the goal in mind of eventual elimination, not of reaching a permanent consensus in the middle-ground.
