Although the right for a woman to have a legal abortion was granted by the Supreme Court in the infamous 1973 Roe v Wade case, the ruling still remains highly controversial all these years later. Left leaning politicians, activists – and even a few Republican appointed Supreme Court justices – have said the case is now settled law.
Those of us who are pro life and realize that murdering the most innocent among us for the sake of convenience is just pure evil. Our consciences will never allow us to consider infanticide as “settled law” or a “woman’s reproductive health right.”
Last week, the Biden Administration asked the Supreme Court to dismiss a series of cases where the Trump Administration was blocking funding for medical clinics that received federal funding. The restrictions were still in place even if the clinics were using other funds to perform the abortions. The clinics also had their funding cut if they referred patients out for abortions.
It is no secret that abortion is the holy grail for many Democrats and they will go to any lengths to to keep this barbaric practice legal. Former President Clinton said during the 1992 presidential campaign that he would like to see abortions become “safe, legal and rare.”
Boy, read below how much has changed in just thirty years:
That abortions should be “safe, legal and rare” was, until fairly recently, a common Democratic talking point. Coined by President Bill Clinton, the phrase signaled his desire to protect the supposed constitutional right to abortion while acknowledging the views of people with moral qualms about the practice and perhaps even winning a few of them over to his side. It helped cement Clinton’s reputation as a moderate. Today, Democrats use the phrase at their peril. The party’s base appears unwilling to tolerate a slogan that suggests abortion ought to be “rare,” hearing in it too much of a concession to abortion opponents. As a result, most Democratic candidates have erased from their rhetoric any hint that abortion might be a subject on which reasonable people can disagree, and they’ve altered their policy proposals to match — endorsing the repeal of all restrictions on paying for abortions with federal money, for example.
With the fiftieth anniversary of Roe v Wade coming in a couple of years, Hollywood actor and director Nick Loeb has co-written a new movie chronicling this controversial case. The movie has notable names in it like Stacy Dash, Joey Lawrence, Tomi Lahren, Jon Voight, Corbin Benson, John Schneider and “My Pillow’s” Mike Lindell.
I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Loeb on his new movie the week before it premiered at CPAC. You’ll remember that Mr. Loeb and his former fiance, actress Sofia Vergara, are currently involved in a protracted embryo custody case. I asked Loeb was this situation the main impetus for him to make the movie?
I asked him how do you get a controversial movie like this made in liberal Hollywood? And I also asked him a question that I’m positive many pro life men ask. How do you convince a pro choice woman that you’re not trying to control her body or choices but are instead trying to preserve the life of an innocent baby in the womb?
The United States has been greatly blessed, not only with material prosperity, but with the blessings of a constitutional form of government that states our inalienable rights are from God, not from kings or the government. The Founders were geniuses but flawed individuals (like all of us) and they understood that a society or nation not built upon a strong moral foundation will eventually collapse under its own weight:
“Virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government,” and “Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people.” – George Washington
“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.” – Benjamin Franklin
“To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical [imaginary] idea.” – James Madison
“Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend of the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue.” – Samuel Adams
“A vitiated [impure] state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.” – Patrick Henry
The evil stain of Slavery was eventually abolished and of course this nation is better for it. The murder of unborn children for the sake of convenience is an equally grievous stain on this country’s moral fabric that I hope is abolished in my lifetime.
