Democrats’ Policies Are Literally Killing Us

Some might wonder how Democrats can be so proud of their extreme position on abortion; but Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz just 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 her to justify “killing a seven-pound baby that is not born yet.”

Few remember when Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards said her kids’ lives “began when I delivered them.” On 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, Schultz 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.”

Most of us believe God creates every life in His image. 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 that 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 approved a bill 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. I 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 newborn 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. Does anyone 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, particularly if you are a dedicated Democrat. 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 yet profess faith in a holy God and trust in the Bible which promotes absolute truth?

Thankfully, more young people today lean pro-life, and 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 preach the gospel and protect 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, which is good; but until we commit to praying and seeing hearts changed for Christ, the debate will continue to go back and forth.

Do you have a biblical Christian worldview, and are you willing to speak and stand up for the most vulnerable among us? If your answer is yes, then your actions, politics, and words should line up with your faith; and you will make the only logical choice: life.

Two-thirds of Americans believe that babies in the womb are people; and 76 percent believe if babies are killed in the womb, due to an attack on the mother, the perpetrator should be guilty of murder.

These are two of the findings of a new poll by YouGov released this week. Views concerning life in the womb varied by party, with 56 percent of Democrats believing the unborn are people while 80 percent of Republicans do. Only 16 percent think that babies in the womb are not people.

Additionally, 52 percent say that life begins at conception, with an additional 20 percent saying it starts when the baby is able to survive outside the womb. Just 18 percent thought that life begins when the baby is born.

Twenty percent believe abortion should be legal in all circumstances, while a majority–56 percent–hold it should only be allowed in certain special circumstances (39 percent) or not allowed at all (17 percent.)

When asked, “If a violent physical attack on a pregnant woman leads to the death of her unborn child, do you think prosecutors should be able to charge the attacker with murder for killing the fetus?” 76 percent of Americans answered, “Yes.” The party breakdown was: 72 percent of Democrats, 73 percent of Independents, and 89 percent of Republicans.

Abortion - Personhood Killing Unborn in Womb

The poll comes out in the aftermath of the gruesome attack in Longmont, Colorado, last month, when a knife-wielding female assailant cut open the stomach of a pregnant woman. The baby initially survived the attack, but died later at the the hospital. The mother survived and has since been released from the hospital.

The Boulder County District Attorney determined that no murder charges would be filled, since Colorado does not protect the life of the unborn child. Currently, 38 states have fetal homicide laws.

DWS Says Government Should Make No Restrictions On Abortion. ‘Period.’

Determined not to let the media stick him with the hard questions while lobbing softballs at his liberal opponents, Rand Paul threw a question back to one reporter Wednesday who was pressing him on the issue of abortion.

“Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it OK to kill a 7-pound baby in the uterus?” Paul responded. “You go back and go ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s OK with killing a 7-pound baby that’s just not born yet. Ask her when life begins, and ask Debbie when she’s willing to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, come back to me.”

The Democratic National Committee chairwoman fired back in a press release that made her position on the matter very clear:

Here’s an answer. I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story.

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Paul commented that “it sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby.”

In 2012, under Wasserman Schultz’s direction, the Democratic National Convention drafted a party platform that supported the right to an abortion without any qualifications. In his interview with Blitzer, Paul noted that Wasserman Schultz’s position, assumedly the position of the Democrat Party, is that abortion up until the day of birth is fine — a position he believes “most pro-choice people would be really uncomfortable with.”

According to the most recent Gallup poll, only 28 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be legal under any circumstance, making Wasserman Schultz and the Democratic Party’s stance rather extreme on the political spectrum.

Many took to Twitter after Wasserman Schultz’s press release to express their disgust with her statement and point out the hypocrisy of her stance.

Meet The Miracle Baby Whose Stunning Pre-Birth ‘Sign’ To Her Parents Saved Her Life

Fay Murrish was enjoying an uneventful pregnancy until, following a 20-week ultrasound, she got the dreadful news that would devastate any loving parent-to-be.

According to The Daily Mirror, the scan at a British hospital revealed that Fay’s unborn child had a life-threatening heart condition so perilous that doctors offered termination of the fetus — abortion — in fact, experts suggested it twice.

Fay and her husband Michael were told that the baby’s chances of survival were extremely low. The newspaper article quotes the distressed young woman recalling what medical specialists were advising about the couple’s daughter, who was to be named Chanel:

“We were told Chanel could have operations but would only have a 50/50 chance of surviving the first and would need two more.

“Even then her life expectancy would only be to young adulthood and she would eventually need a heart transplant.

“When you hear that you wonder if you should bring a child into the world.”

Then according to the Mirror, two things happened that helped the young couple to make up their minds — to refuse an abortion and give Chanel a fighting chance.

The baby started kicking inside the mother’s womb, and an ultrasound image showed something extraordinary.

“’I know she wanted to live because she was giving a huge thumbs-up at her scan. It was like she was telling us everything would be OK.’”

Immediately after Chanel Murrish was delivered by C-section, the tiny newborn was rushed into surgery, becoming Britain’s youngest-ever baby to undergo an open-heart procedure, to correct the fact that only one half of her heart was beating.

“Now, at five weeks’ old, Chanel is going from strength to strength having got through not just the first operation but a second procedure at the age of just seven days.”

And what of the prospects for an uncertain future? Said Fay Murrish, “For now we’re living in the moment and enjoying our beautiful baby daughter.”

Guess Who Wants You To Pay For Abortions For Obama’s Illegals?

The anti-American loonies in the American Civil Liberties Union want us to pay for abortions for illegal aliens. In the contorted minds that make up the ACLU, since they allege that 60 to 80% of the females who sneak into our country are sexually assaulted, we the American taxpayers are somehow liable to pay to kill the children that result from these rapes.

Naturally, these lowlife leftists are not in favor of the obvious answer to the problem they allege, which is to tighten up the borders so these “victims” can’t come into our “terrible country.”

The ACLU’s “better” idea is to force religious organizations like Catholic Charities to pay for the murder of these innocent infants so their “victim” mothers don’t have to be burdened with unwanted children in their new life as a Democrat voter and parasite living off of taxpayers. As they see it, religious organizations would then not be able to “impose their religious beliefs on these teens by denying them access to contraception, emergency contraception, and abortion.”

For the ACLU, this serves at least two important purposes. Not only does it fill the illegal aliens’ goodie bags; it also puts religious organizations (deeply hated by the ACLU) in their place, humiliating them by forcing them to violate their beliefs. And to add even more insult to injury, the ACLU wants us to buy contraceptives for these female burglars–which they will hand out presumably during their registration as new Democrats.

This bunch has already scored a big victory at our expense because the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement is readying a ruling “that will force American religious relief agencies to provide abortions and contraception services to the illegal immigrants those groups serve.”

Unfortunately, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has responded with a typically weak and almost apologetic comment; demands that it distribute contraceptives and pay for abortions “create moral concerns.”

The irony here is that female illegals seeking to kill their children are actually acting in an atypical manner. It doesn’t take these invaders long to understand that the more children they have, the more money they can steal from us. Moreover, at least some are Catholics who would be repulsed by Catholic organizations handing out contraceptives and killing babies; but none of that matters to the ACLU – it never does.
