Recently, I had a bit of a snit with other Prolifers regarding their reasoning to not stand behind every little bit of legislation that has even just a tiny breath of hope of changing current abortion law. The last thing we need is division because of vanity.
We need to get back to the basics.
“We’re getting to ask the real question — does abortion take the life of a child? … If it does, then those of us sitting here in the chambers of freedom live in the midst of the greatest human genocide in the history of humanity,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said. (3/4/11, The Hill)
Be aware of what the legislation actually is and what it covers.
“H.R. 3 does not ban abortion. It also does not restrict abortions, or abortion coverage in healthcare plans, as long as those abortions or plans use only private or state funds,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas).
Know who the sponsors are and what their agenda is.
This will always be a Republican vs. Democrat fight. Abortion will never be about unborn children dying every day in the thousands, this will always be about agenda and who it benefits. Sadly, the basic truths are being shuffled and labeled as ‘religious’ in nature. As Rep. Trent said, “Does abortion take the life of a child?”
Ah, there’s that question: When does Life begin?
Debate all you want about when Life begins, but the reality is this: Men and women are given what it takes to make a human baby. The humble beginning as a fertilized egg is only a prelude to what that will become, a human baby…not a puppy, not a goldfish, not a pelican. A human. The fact that this is debatable is proof of how depraved the human race has become:
Welcome to America! The land where unborn baby killing is legal but Save the Plankton.
