Planned Parenthood Disaster

"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap."1

According to Chuck Colson in Breakpoint (August 3, 2009), "In the 1960s, the average South Korean woman gave birth to six children during her lifetime. Forty years later, South Korea has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world—slightly more than one child per woman.

"The sharp decline in fertility threatens the social harmony and 'sustainable development of Korean society.' Concern over the 'national crisis of super-low fertility' has prompted calls for political and cultural changes from unexpected quarters."2

Korea's low birthrate, unless arrested, will eventually threaten its survival as Japan's low birthrate is currently doing to Japan.

If societies and nations recommend only one child per couple, they are recommending a program for national extinction.

South Korea has realized this. Recognizing the needs of Society, Choi Seon-jeong, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of Korea, and the Korean government—"after years of encouraging families to have only one child"—have done an about-face and are now promoting "child-bearing and child-rearing."

As Colson points out, we don't hear the American Planned Parenthood officials talk about the needs of society. Their concern is that of an individual woman's right to choose—regardless of the ultimate consequences of society and the nation. Anything less than this is considered an attack on their freedom. This is just another tenet of our self-centered, me-first generation. 

When we abandon our moral foundation and keep pushing God out of society, we also abandon personal responsibility and will reap the consequences. Tragically, the so called "politically correct" and self-centered people just don't get it.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please deliver me from being a part of the self-centered, me-first generation and help me to become more and more like Jesus in every way and therein be a genuine example for my family, friends, and all the people in my life. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
