Why teachers should oppose abortion

By Tom Quiner

Is human life good or bad?

This questions divides political camps in America. Liberals apparently view human life as a disease. They agitate for abortion expansion. They impose contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization in our insurance plans whether we want them or not.

People cause pollution. That’s bad, so people are bad.

People cost the government a lot of money in welfare and our extravagant safety net. So fewer people are better than more people in terms of sustaining these programs, and increasing their benefits.

Conservatives view people as innovators, creators, and problem solvers. More people are good, not bad, in their eyes.

One of liberals’ most consistent and loyal supporters are the teachers’ union. They fall right in line with Democrat’s insistence on abortion rights, and the widespread availability of abortion services.

As enrollment drops in Chicago, teacher's jobs are at risk.

As enrollment drops in Chicago, teacher’s jobs are at risk.

They may want to rethink this position. There is a practical reason why: their jobs may be at stake.

Let’s look at one of the most liberal cities in the country, Chicago, for a glimpse at how liberal policies play themselves out.

Of course, you’ve heard about the wave of killings taking place in the Windy City, a place with some of the most stringent gun control laws in the cities. But have you heard what is happening to their schools? Thanks to the high salaries they’re paying teachers, the school district is experiencing a little billion dollar shortfall.

You read that correctly: that’s Billion with a capital B.

That’s not their biggest problem. Enrollment is dropping. A bunch of their schools are half empty. They’ve lost 145,000 students between 2000-2013. To help compensate for their budget shortfall and compensate for declining enrollment, they are forced to close 54 schools at a loss of teaching jobs.

How could Chicago lose so many students? Simple, they aborted them.

In just the last six years alone, the Chicagoland area, consisting of Will, Lake, Cook, Dupage, Kendall, Kane Counties has aborted 181,717 preborn babies.

If these kids had been allowed to be born, the area wouldn’t have lost enrollment, they would have gained it. They could be hiring teachers instead of firing teachers.

Thanks to their politics, an increasing number of Chicago teachers, now unemployed, will have more time on their hands to promote abortion on behalf of their liberal masters.

    I thought the very thing when I saw the report of the 54 schools being shut down by Rahm Emmanuel. The teachers’ union president was very angry.
    Amazing. 181,717 aborted children. Unbelievable.

    Amazing…that many lost lives. God is crying.

      And Satan is laughing with delight.

        Makes me think of the prayer of St. Michael. The devil is lurking throughout the world seeking souls and he has found them in those who abort new lives.

      Speaking of St. Michael, Kodonivan, you might be interested to know that I have taped a picture of him to my computer. The internet, I have decided, can be a great tool for spreading evil and I have decided I want his protection while I am on it.

        Thanks for the suggestion! I believe I will do the same. We pray that at the end of all the masses at our parish. We need him.

    It’s also another reason our “entitlement” programs are in such peril. We have many, many fewer workers than we would have had abortion never been legalized. All those workers pay taxes. We now have about 2.5 people paying in to SS and Medicare for every person drawing on it. When it first started, there were 40 paying in to SS for every person drawing on it. They need to raise the retirement age to 70, starting in 2020 and to 73 or 75 in 2030. If we had the 50 million + workers that have been aborted since 1972, our entitlement programs would not be going broke.

    I’ve always wondered why anyone, regardless of one’s personal politics, religious convictions, or moral standards, would be in favor of killing off one’s future customers/clients. Anyone would think naked self-interest would make them oppose the destruction of that upon which their livelihood depends.

      You and Shawn are making the same point in different ways, Bob, and you’re making it well. It seems that there is such a lack of coherence in the policies and philosophy of the Left. Thanks for writing.
