How the Meek will Inherit
Some time toward the end of the next century the remnants of western civilization will loudly curse Planned Parenthood, radical feminists, homosexuals, and all the champions for the culture of death in the media and government who have successfully promoted society's cultural suicide. A viable culture must regenerate itself in order to survive and it is a statistical fact that it takes an average of 2.1 children per woman to maintain this survivability. In Europe and North America the number of children for each western woman is much less than this (1.2 to 1.9 depending on the country) and, at such rates, in the middle of the next century these populations will begin to fade gently into oblivion.
As this is happening, people from Third World countries are being invited to provide the manpower to do the dirty work necessary to clean up after their hosts. It just happens that most of these people have old-fashioned attachments to their clans, spouses and broods of children. The iron law of nature states the future belongs to the fertile and it should be obvious that, if these trends continue, in a very short time these immigrants will have the political power that will serve new cultures, philosophies, and religions, displacing the advantage presently claimed by westerners.
Everywhere in the European community and Anglo-America, real attention focuses on consumption, frequent sex and fun. Very few sophisticated moderns are pestered these days by children. The population controllers and the abortionist have given them the excuses, tools and laws needed to indulge in every meaningless selfish desire and, thanks to the secular humanist philosophies most live by today, our culture now has the power to “party” itself out of existence.
It is said that the Lord works in mysterious ways; perhaps this is his way of blessing future generations.

Crisis Pregnancy: Just Stand by Me
In a survey of mothers who aborted, when asked “What situation caused you to make the decision to abort?” nearly 90% of the women interviewed said they had had their abortion because of a relationship — because someone they loved, a boyfriend, girlfriend, relative or parent, told them to. When asked what anyone could have done to help them complete the pregnancy, over and over the answer was “Just stand by me.” “I would have had the baby if only I had one person stand by me” was heard so many times. Pregnancy-care centers may run short of diapers, maternity dresses and doctor fees, but as long as they can keep their doors open and the lights on they can do that one necessary thing: be that friend.
We need to restore the sexual balance of power with respect for a woman's need for commitment and security — in short, abstinence before and fidelity within marriage. Nevertheless, it also means supporting a woman who does get pregnant with pregnancy care services and other alternatives.
My friend, we love you and care about you and the precious gift that you are carrying. Give your child a chance. Seek out those who really care about you — to help and support you in this crisis that you have found yourself in.
