Spring Cleaning

Every spring we feel an urge to clean our physical world, particularly the interior and exterior of our homes. From spot free windows to clean closets and drawers, the annual spring cleaning inspires many. The end result of the cleaning, suddenly our homes feel light and airy again. Overall, life feels better when we are done.

Perhaps every year as we remove boxes of clutter from our lives, we should remove it from our spiritual self as well. As we wash the windows in our homes, we should wash the windows of our soul. Maybe they are no longer spot free, and that is why we are having a hard time seeing what is outside.

Whatever your case may be, it is important to tidy up our insides just as much as we tidy up what is outside. With all areas clean and organized we find a nice balance. Everything becomes manageable, and anything seems possible.

“As the birds sing each morning, you will find yourself singing too.

Now  let’s move along my friend, we have some cleaning to do!”

The Healthcare Bill And Using Federal Dollars For Abortion

77% of anti-abortion leaders are men. 100% of them will never get pregnant!

One of the latest snags with getting our government health care approved is this issue of abortion. Many fear the bill will not be signed off on this round because the language in regards to abortion is so vague. Anti-abortionists feel that a government health care plan should not involve a procedure such as abortion.

The process of abortion can range from a $50.00 pill up to a $500.00 procedure. In my opinion, I would rather my tax dollars be spent in the sum of $50.00-$500.00 vs. the cost of a pregnancy, labor, birth, etc. It is not that I preach “Hey, get abortions” but I do feel it is that persons right to choose what is best for their life. I think that if they make the choice to get an abortion that insurance should cover it. Granted, stipulations may be necessary to prevent some people from becoming professional abortionists. However, most people who go through an experience such as an abortion, likely do not repeat the experience. Once is usually enough.

What I want to know is: How is it any different from other health issues? Yes pregnancy is preventable, but so are many other health issues that we Americans bring upon ourselves due to our habits and lifestyles. I don’t think that covering the cost of abortion on federal dollars should be an issue. What do you think?
