Albert Mohler: The Real Controversy In The Alabama Senate Race

In Alabama’s special election Senatorial race, the big news has been voters’ decision to make the controversial figure, Justice Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for the Senate seat.

But I would suggest that the mainstream media are doing their best to stay away from the really big story here. And that is that the Democrats’ nominee, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones, is not only avowedly pro-abortion, he actually opposes the Hyde amendment that would protect American taxpayers being forced to pay for abortion.

On “Meet the Press Daily” Chuck Todd pressed the question of abortion to Jones, asking, “So you wouldn’t be in favor of legislation that said, ban abortion after 20 weeks or something like that?”

Jones said he would not support such legislation. In fact, he said once the child is born, he would “be there for that child.” In the astounding statement Jones said, “That’s where I become a right to lifer.”

That means that there is no point before the birth of the child when Doug Jones running for the United States Senate in Alabama would consider himself pro-life.
