This is a very interesting take on why people have devolved into such vehement opposition and downright hysteria in response to Trump’s presidency. As usual, there are many things at play here, but this is a factor I hadn’t thought through this explicitly. I’ve thought of all these adults being made by divorce and broken homes or single mothers or abuse into the shrieking, unreasoning, emotional wrecks that they are. All factors, I’m sure. But this article from Crisis, Aborting a Presidency, ties in complicated, unresolved and denied grief from personal abortions or complicity in abortions (or both) to these hyper-liberal democrats of today and their excessive reactions, projections and anger. Anger and blaming is, of course, much more comfortable than pain and guilt. This too makes sense. It’s worth a read.
Author and political scientist Darrell West is deeply concerned about the current climate in the United States. “Societal tensions have metastasized into a dangerous tribalism that seriously threatens U.S. democracy,” he warns. “Unless people can bridge these divisions and forge a new path forward, it will be impossible to work together, maintain a functioning democracy, and solve the country’s pressing policy problems.”
The impeachment of President Trump reveals that our two political parties have devolved into a state of war.

After 45 years of legalized abortion in the U.S., and close to 60 million procedures, there are few families that have not been directly impacted by the loss of a son or daughter, grandchild, sibling, nephew, or niece.
Millions of our fellow citizens have been complicit in the death of children in the womb—e.g., paid for the procedure, pressured or encouraged someone to have an abortion, or driven a friend to the abortion center.
Thousands of medical and mental health professionals, educators, and politicians have directly participated in the death of the unborn.
This is a shared national trauma. (Continue Reading Here)
