Yes, I know…it’s election year…isn’t it always? This is that special time of year when we get to hear [nearly all of] the candidates evolve their reproductive/abortion rights way of thinking out loud to gain the most moderates. Moderates seems to be a larger demographic this election and you can thank Obama for that. He brings out the worst in his own party and the rats are jumping ship looking or a LIFE preserver [PUN INTENDED].
A fellow blogger wrote: ‘Most anti-abortion candidates for high office would allow abortions under certain circumstances. This is bad logic, but good politics.’ (petermaize.wordpress.com)
I know I tend to be a very black-and-white thinker, no such thing as ‘gray’ nor should there ever be. However, wishy-washy fence-settin’ DemoPublicans are just sitting out there waiting to vote for whoever appeases their sloshy-ness. It is a nasty mess that’s hard to manage mostly because the moderate can’t be pinned down….too many issues, too many choices. Even the Bible has addressed the moderate:
“But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one,” (Matthew 5:37).
Democrats have schooled moderates to exchange their views on reproductive/abortion rights by using rape [AKA the ‘exception clause’] as the #1 excuse to murder unborn children….hence my title to this article is my answer to their inability to choose a side: Yes, rape is rape…but murder is MURDER.
An anonymous commenter to the Port Huron Times Herald said, “I was 12 years old when I was raped, and I had my child who now is the light of my life. A previous caller who said she was in similar circumstances said these babies are ‘innocent offspring.’ I completely agree. I have compassion for her. What I went through was very painful. But my son was the gift of my life, and is a successful man this day.” (thetimesherald.com)
“If I have despised the cause of my male or female servant when they complained against me, what then shall I do when God rises up? When He punishes, how shall I answer Him? Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?” Job 31:13-15
SIDE NOTE: Don’t you find it interesting that Democrats/moderates say abortion is permissible ‘In the event of rape or incest’? Do Democrats NOT think incest TO BE rape? But I digress…should be a matter for another post…
To summarize: Abortion kills an unborn child every time. Even if the child’s mom was raped. Period.
