Is Zell Miller Too Old to be President?


Zell Miller took the time last week to point out the 1000 lb. gorilla in the room that is our country. From lifesite.net:

Controversial Former US Senator Names Abortion as Culprit in US Population Shortages
“How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the last 30 years?” Miller asks
By Peter J. Smith

MACON, Georgia, March 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Former US Senator Zell Miller blamed abortion as the reason why the United States faces shortages of military manpower, the impending collapse of its social security system, and depends on illegal immigration.

. . .

“How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the last 30 years?” Miller asked his audience. “Here is the brutal truth that no one dares to mention: We’re too few because too many of our babies have been killed. Over 45 million since Roe v. Wade in 1973.”

“If those 45 million children had lived, today they would be defending our country, they would be filling our jobs, they would be paying into Social Security,” the former Georgia governor said. “Still, we watch as 3,700 babies are killed every single day in America. It is unbelievable that a nation under God would allow this.”

Miller praised the number of cures developed through adult stem-cell therapies, and condemned embryonic stem research as abortion on a smaller scale.

"It is not a proper fate for a human being made in God's image...killing is wrong when it is called abortion and it is just as wrong when it is called research."

. . .

However, Miller made it clear he will not back down from his statements, and urged other Americans to take a courageous stand against abortion. “And sometimes in the life of a nation, a time comes when men and women of conscience and courage have to stand up and be counted and say, ‘Enough! No more, this cannot continue.’”

Zell, if you are reading this (ha!) and ever come through St. Louis, the beers are on me. I suppose it is just one more sign of the really lamentable state of affairs these days that there isn't a single viable pro-life candidate for President to yet declare. Sen. Brownback is pro-life, but as yet hasn't garnered much support. If you think European civilization is in its death throes and are wont to be complacent, consider these wonderful front runners in the Presidential race: Obama, Clinton, McCain, Giuliani.

Unfortunately, maybe that pro-life candidate we're looking for was aborted, and we'll never know.

Zell is 100% correct. This is in contrast to the dummies who some time ago implied or came right out and said in some book that abortions were the reason that crime "has gone down" in numbers. Give me a break. It's unbelievable the black hearted lies being told to "justify" abortion. Yes, Zell's got a very right grasp on the situation and implications of the abortion nightmare and it's impact on the country in terms you'd think most people could understand.

What's really sad is that so many people are now too young to remember when there were children laughing and playing on every block in every town, and that there was always a happy family bringing home a baby somewhere nearby. I'm talking about the prevalence of children, not trying to paint these as perfect times, but the sadness that many people are too young to know what it's like to have a lot of children around. The past 20-25 years have felt very empty to me, as I've observed this change.
