Would You Kill a Seven Pound Baby in the Womb? Me Neither.

Abortion. The leftists' most holy sacrament. If you don't believe me, read a quote from the transcript of an interview that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave to Fox News' Megyn Kelly earlier in the week, “So, from my perspective, from my party’s perspective, we do not support rolling back the protection that the Constitutional right to make your own reproductive choices established in Roe versus Wade has given to women”. Translation, abortion is the Democrat keystone issue. This quote is in reference to Senator Rand Paul turning the tables on the leftist media when they asked him what his position on abortion was. He then asked the local reporter to ask DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she was OK with aborting a seven pound, nearly full term baby. It actually worked. Mrs Schultz has been asked the question by several networks and has done nothing but show how much the issue of abortion means to her and her uber left leaning base. Dr Paul has turned the tables and has moved the needle on the debate more than any right leaning politician in recent memory. Why shouldn't those that support what amounts to murder of unborn children be made to answer for it?

One thing is clear, the abortion loving left is a known group of science deniers. A new life is created when a fertilized egg attaches to the wall in the mother's womb. The same people that will protect every animal life, I'm looking at you Delta Smelt lovers out there, will not afford the same courtesy to that of unborn human children. A CNN poll from 2014 showed that a strong majority (58%) of people surveyed either said that abortion should be completely illegal or illegal in most circumstances. A Marist poll released in January of 2015 shows that 84% of those surveyed believe that abortions should be illegal in most cases, especially after three months gestation. Only 9% favored completely unrestricted abortion. These number include people that call themselves pro-choice and pro-life. The number has been trending toward the side of life for a number of years now. 12 states have now passed pain-capable bans on abortion after five months of gestation. Mrs Schultz is on the wrong side of this issue. The great thing all of her interviews have done is to make sure the voting public now have her on record. She supports killing children up until the day they are born.

The Republicans should recognize this as an issue where they are on the right side and the Democrat party is on the wrong side.  Senator Ted Cruz, when asked by David Brody in a March interview with CBN News, if he would compromise with those across the aisle, said that conservatives should follow Ronald Reagan's lead. “Reagan said what do you do if they offer you half a loaf? Answer: you take it. And then you come back for more”. Republicans need to treat the issue of protecting innocent life in Reagan's half a loaf manner. Keep asking for more.

This issue is near and dear to me. As the uncle of a little boy who was born at 30 weeks gestation, most elected Democrats would have been fine with a baby of his gestational age being aborted. He is now almost nine months old and starting to eat solid foods. He also enjoys chewing on everything as if his life depended on it. My nephew was barely over three pounds at birth, barely bigger than my brother-in-law's hand. He is now the most special thing to happen to my family in years. He is the light in my sister's eyes and he knows, already, just how to push her buttons. 

Those of us appreciate every new life need to make our voices heard. Let pro-life candidates know that they have our support. Make sure that those who seek to allow babies to be killed up until they are born hear our righteous anger. We, as pro-life voters, need to make our voices heard. Make our opponents understand that they are on the wrong side of this issue. I, for one, am not afraid of people that advocate killing innocent babies. You shouldn't be afraid either.
