If Trump Rant on Abortion Is Correct, I'm Cool With That

I’m going to take a guess and say that former President Trump I believe had a relaxing CHRISTmas and New Year’s Day because he came out FIRING on Truth Social about why he was not to blame for the midterm underperformance in 2022. However, before I go into the main subject of this article I have a Bible verse to share to add some background.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart –Jeremiah 1:5

The reason why I’m starting out with this is really quite simple. I’m pro-life which means I’m not pro-choice or pro-abortion. In fact, RedState is proudly full of pro-life individuals. While I have not talked to everyone here about this verse above I believe Jeremiah 1:5 is not only biblical common sense but secular as well.

If you believe in God and that He created all things then it makes sense that He knew you before you made your grand entrance into the world. If you are hanging on the secular side of the fence and not so sure about an all-powerful creator then you still must know that all human life begins in the womb. Someone in any stage of pregnancy is not going to miraculously give birth to a platypus or a puppy, the result always is going to be a human life.

No matter the method of how that life began.

Now that I have that background laid out, let’s get to what POTUS 45 let loose on that platform that is not owned by Elon Musk.

Trump decided to let everyone know that going into 2023 he was not going to take the blame for the Republicans losing a seat in the Senate and underperforming on the House of Representatives side taking over that chamber by only a razor-thin margin.

My colleague Bonchie wrote this piece earlier today, which covered what Don said…

Donald Trump is looking elsewhere for an explanation, though. In an eyebrow-raising rant on Sunday, he appeared to blame pro-lifers for GOP woes.

I’m not here to bag on Trump just for the sake of bagging on him. I get that he has a lot of supporters who still want him to be the guy in 2024. That’s fair enough, but this statement is concerning, to say the least.

Speaking from experience, being pro-life isn’t a political convenience. It’s not something a person just flips on and off to win elections. It’s a deep-seated belief at the very core of who someone is that taking the life of an unborn baby is wrong. Let’s say that Trump is right, and pro-lifer positions did cause the GOP to underperform in the last election. So what?

So if President Trump is right and the pro-life wing of the Republican Party and the overturning of Roe v. Wade prevented the red wave from happening in November, I’m 100 percent fine with that.

Why is this you may ask?

The Supreme Court instituting Roe by judicial fiat back in the early seventies created a stain on the soul of this nation that was finally (partially) remedied with the Supreme Court’s decision last summer to overturn an Incredibly flawed ruling. While it is true that now the protection of the unborn goes back to all 50 states, I believe the fight can be localized and fought more effectively than having Congress or the Court shove it down our throats.

While I find Trump’s analysis flawed in his post I also am very appreciative of both him and (cue up the boos) Mitch McConnell for getting 3 justices appointed to the Supreme Court in 4 years to make last summer’s ruling possible.

If the long-term goal is to rid this country of the horrible practice of ending the life of helpless babies in the womb and to achieve that goal the Red Wave of 2022 was sacrificed, I’ll make that trade. Of course, there is a lot of work to do to see the reality of that long-term goal come to fruition but the first step was taken last summer and it was an incredibly hopeful sign of things to come.

With the law of the land being abortion-on-demand with some conditions that always could be skirted, it has been incredibly hard to live up to the last part of this nation’s Pledge of Allegiance which we all learned in school.

One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all

We now have a shot at once again being a nation truly under God’s providence and looking to protect all stages of life to provide liberty and justice for everyone. If that long-reaching goal is a setback in 2022 at the ballot box…

I’ll take that trade 24/7  and 365 days a year.
