Some might ask how Democrats can be so proud of their extreme position on abortion, but Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has doubled-down, insisting there be no limits on when a mother can end the life of her unborn baby. We can thank Rand Paul for challenging them to justify the murder of a seven-pound unborn baby even up until moments before being born.
Wednesday, Paul stated, “Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when it’s okay to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, get back to me.”
Abortion being a sacrament to the left as well as big business leading to millions of dollars in donations, Shultz reiterated the Democrat Party demands no limits on abortion, adding, “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story.”
Here’s the thing; most of us believe every life is created in the image of God and should be valued, and this is not merely a social, financial, or political issue. It is a moral issue. Our tax dollars should not help fund something we know is sin and we strongly oppose. The abortion business seems to help doctors and the Democratic Party leaving millions of women in anguish. They’ve done some excellent (read: evil) marketing through the years.
In other disappointing but not surprising news, the New York State Assembly just passed a law allowing for abortion up to the moment of birth. Many “anti-lifers” refuse to defend their reasoning because they attempt to make a distinction between just inside and outside the birth canal. Many of us would like them to logically explain how an unborn child who is one day away from his due date can be dismembered or shot in the heart with poison, but a new born baby can’t? Theirs is an indefensible position and yet, government, Hollywood, and the media generally defend the so-called right to choose.
Tragically, more black babies are aborted than born in the Democrat stronghold of New York City. Hispanics are not far behind as they account for 31% of all abortions in New York. Don’t you find it strange that in a liberal media claiming to support minorities, rarely does anyone address the truth? Roughly 78% of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods and inner cities. No one sees any connection between the eugenics, population control, and racism endorsed by Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, and abortion policy today?
If you support abortion, but claim to follow Jesus Christ and identify as a Christian, please examine your worldview on the subject of life. Search your heart. You may find you have bought into progressive propaganda and have an inner contradiction needing to be dealt with. How can you defend the moral relativism in society today and profess faith in a holy God and trust the Bible which promotes absolute truth?
Over 80% of American citizens favor abortion restrictions, but who seems to be winning this cultural battle? The extremists with the loudest voices have made progress and have the advantage, but they are not winning public opinion. Their agenda however, will continue to be forced on all Americans until more of us unashamedly speak up by preaching the gospel and protecting all life including the elderly.
When people sincerely return to faith in God or become genuine Christians for the first time, their worldview must necessarily change which affects their behavior and politics. Sure, we may win a few surface battles and pass more pro-life legislation, but until we commit to praying and seeing hearts changed, things will continue to go back and forth and truth will not prevail.
Are you willing to speak up for the most vulnerable among us? Do you have a biblical Christian worldview? If your answer is yes, then your actions and words should line up with your faith, and you will stand for life.
