Medved: Taxpayer Funding for Abortion is Not Pro-Choice


Joe Biden’s abandonment of his long-standing support for the Hyde Amendment has not only damaged his campaign, but should bring permanent changes to the language we use on the abortion issue.

Biden and other Catholic Democrats often insisted that they personally disapproved of abortion, but they didn’t want government to interfere with a woman’s so-called “Right to Choose.”

But if the Hyde Amendment is removed, that means the “Right to Choose” becomes a right to government funding for terminating your pregnancy. Many of those who said they wanted government to stay out of the abortion decision, now insist that government must get directly involved—by providing federal funding.

This is not a “Pro-Choice” position—it’s a “Pro-Abortion” position, demanding government subsidies. In the future, liberals who favor such funding should accept the “Pro Abortion” designation just as proudly as conservatives acknowledge that we are anti-abortion—and pro- life.

Albert Mohler: Abortion May Well Be Before the Supreme Court Soon

The intensity of the abortion debate in the United States has reached a new level as Alabama’s governor, Kay Ivey, has signed a bill banning virtually all abortion in the state.

The overwhelming national response indicates that we have now reached a new moment in America’s conflict between the powerful forces for abortion and powerful forces against abortion.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the map of America when you look at the question of abortion reflects an intensity and a polarization hauntingly like the map of the United States before the Civil War.

In recent decades, the pro-life movement has sought to chip away the logic of Roe v. Wade. There’s no “chipping away” here: Alabama’s move is a direct challenge to Roe.

Stay tuned.

One way or another, the issue of abortion may well be before the Supreme Court, and very soon.

Albert Mohler: A Clear Picture of the Pro-Abortion Worldview

The fetal heartbeat bills recently adopted in several states are strategic efforts intended to provoke the attention of the United States Supreme Court to confront the logic of the Roe v. Wade decision.

The passage of these bills has also provoked a very revealing public conversation. Notably, Christine Quinn—active in New York city politics over the years, said on CNN, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”

Whatever the inhabitant of the womb is, according to Christine Quinn, “it’s not a human being.”

Because, if it were, pro-abortion advocates would then have to recognize the personhood of that being and recognize his or her rights.

The only significant moral agent when it comes to those who are representing the pro-choice position is the woman. The baby simply doesn’t exist.

Christine Quinn’s horrifying comment has at least achieved one thing, moral clarity, and we should at least note that.

Albert Mohler: The Kansas High Court and the Meaning of Words

The culture of death has gained new ground as the state Supreme Court in Kansas has now blocked a law that would have protected unborn human life.

In a decisive 6-1 decision, the majority said that, according to the Kansas state constitution, a woman there has a right to an abortion, to the procedure known as D&E—dilation and evacuation. Note: that is the dismemberment and the removal of the unborn child from the woman’s body.

The decision was breathtaking, catching both sides of the abortion argument in Kansas by surprise.

The constitution of Kansas was adopted in 1859. Abortion was not mentioned. Abortion wasn’t intended.

Once again: We’re looking at invented law and invented rights made by courts.

If we are not restrained by the meaning of words—in this case the words of the state constitution—then we are fundamentally unrestrained. And that means our government is unrestrained, and there are few more deadly dangers than a government unrestrained.

Jim Daly: Americans Are Beginning to See Life More Clearly

Good news for pre-born babies in last weekend’s box office headlines: To the shock of many in Hollywood, the movie Unplanned opened by making $6.1 million. Unplanned features the story of former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson who defected from the organization and became a pro-life activist.

Now I’m no Hollywood expert, but I was not surprised by how well the movie performed. People are growing frustrated with out of touch politicians who have overreached by allowing abortion rights right up until birth, and even after being born. Yes, that’s infanticide.

To show your support for life, join Focus on the Family in Times Square for “Alive from New York” on May 4th. We’re going to show live 4D ultrasounds. After seeing these images no one should question whether life inside the womb is a human being. Americans are beginning to see life more clearly, and maybe even Hollywood.
