Does it speak to the frontier attitude so prevalent in our nation, the spirit of adventure, even in search of the new and unexplored? The conquest of the West followed by the quest to reach the moon, and with that accomplished, onward to Mars? Even the average American family moves about in search of whatever is “out there,” offering a will-o’-the-wisp fantasy of a better life beyond.
How odd that life needs defending. In the times we find ourselves, legislation is fast changing: particularly, laws that make it an offense to murder unborn children are being tested by those who think it right that a woman bearing a child has the “right” to dispose of that child prior to the time of birth.
