Abortion used to be illegal in the United States, because it was seen as the taking of an innocent life, the life of an unborn child. The unborn, like all human beings, were believed to have a constitutionally guaranteed right to life. Then, in 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States dehumanized unborn children, "legally" declaring them to be potential human beings, but not real human beings. In addition, in its infamous Roe v. Wade Decision, the court created, out of whole cloth, a woman's constitutional right to an abortion, a right nowhere to be found in our Constitution nor in the wildest imaginations of our Founding Fathers. In fact, though most Americans will not admit it, we all know that the Court's Roe v. Wade Decision had no legal basis and that unborn children are full-fledged human beings, something easily proven by our own laws. For instance, Conners’ Law charges the murderer of a pregnant woman with a double homicide. Furthermore, laws protecting endangered species, like eagles, outlaw destroying the egg of an eagle, proving that we know an eagle is still an eagle even before it is hatched, just like a baby is still a baby even before it is born.


To me, there is no greater proof of our country’s spiritual reprobation than the fact that the major plank in the Democrat Party’s platform heading into this November’s election is their promise to codify Roe v. Wade—abortion on demand—into federal law. That this is a winning political strategy in present-day America, which already has the blood of more than 62 million aborted unborn babies on its hands, is proof positive of the depths of our nation’s decadence. According to Democrats, pro-life Americans, who believe what all Americans used to believe, that the unborn are human beings with a God-given and constitutionally guaranteed right to life, are radicals. On the other hand, Democrats are not radicals, despite the fact that they not only believe abortion should be legal from the moment of conception to the time of birth, but also advocate things like gruesome partial-birth abortions and after-birth abortions—the abandoning of a baby to die, which has survived a botched abortion.


As Ruth Graham, the wife of famous Evangelist Billy Graham, once said, “If God doesn’t judge America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” 


After fighting the DNC, the Party of Death, for decades, the prayers of pro-life Americans were finally answered, when our Supreme Court overturned its egregious 1973 Roe v. Wade Decision. However, what pro-lifers failed to fathom was the deeper depths of depravity and decadence our country had sunk to over the years. We have ceased to be a nation that champions the sanctity of human life, as we once were, and have become a nation that not only calls for the continuing carnage of unborn children, but also wants political candidates who promise its callous continuance. Realizing the advantage abortion on demand Democrats have with America’s present-day abortion advocating public, Republicans, as they always do, quickly surrendered their exclaimed principles for political expediency, backpedaling from their previous pro-life stance to find a middle-of-the-road compromise on abortion that might pay off for them at the polls this coming November. 


True to form, as well as much to the chagrin of pro-life Americans, Donald Trump has joined the Republican chorus of compromise. While there are a few pro-life Republicans still clinging white-knuckled to their protection of the unborn and their professed belief in the sanctity of human life, they are definitely the exception and not the rule. The rest, like Trump, are arguing that sacrificing unborn children for the sake of winning elections is not to high of a price to pay for Republican success at the polls. In fact, according to Trump, Republicans who stick to their pro-life principles, like Lindsey Graham and Mike Pence, are not only guaranteeing a Blue Wave in November, but are also “doing a great disservice to the Republican Party, and to our Country.” 


Trump’s tired old argument has been argued by Republicans for years. You can’t make a difference unless you win elections; therefore, whatever compromises you have to make to win elections are completely justified. I not only beg to differ, but would like to offer proof positive that such an argument is not only easily contradicted, but also counter productive. 


Long ago, there was a Man, who was so unpopular with the public that He was executed according to public demand. One of the last events in His life was His losing of a public election by a landslide to a common criminal named Barabbas. The reason for both His extreme unpopularity and lost election was His unwillingness to compromise the truth. In spite of this, no man who has ever lived has made a bigger difference in this world or changed more lives within it than this Man. By the way, His name was Jesus!
