Albert Mohler: Kentucky Leads the Way in Defending Life

The state of Kentucky is in the historic process of passing four new, pro-life laws—all of them expected to be signed by Kentucky’s pro-life, Governor, Republican Matt Bevin.

One has already been appealed—it’s a law that would nearly ban abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy. The “Fetal Heartbeat Bill” would protect life once a detectable heartbeat is existent.

House Bill 148 would ban abortion completely in the state of Kentucky, taking effect only in the event that Roe v. Wade is reversed.

Another would require physicians to tell women about certain realities of life and options available to them in the event they’re considering an abortion.

But in moral terms, one of the most important of these bills is the last one, called House Bill 5. It would make illegal abortion based on race, gender, or the disability of a fetus. But the pro-abortion movement is fighting it with everything they have.

It’s a big moment for the cause of life.

Albert Mohler: A Revealing Week in the U.S. Senate

On Tuesday this week, the U.S. Senate failed to pass legislation that would protect the lives of children born alive, that would have prevented and made illegal infanticide after a botched abortion. It should be inconceivable that such an event would happen in the United States Senate, but it did happen.

It was both tragic and telling.

A bare majority—53 senators—voted in favor of the legislation, but 44 opposed it. Given the filibuster rules in the Senate, 60 votes were needed for the measure to proceed to the Senate floor for a full vote.

From time to time legislation—by virtue of the fact that it passes or fails to pass—offers something of a diagnostic test of the moral condition of the United States, of its people and its culture. Something like a moral MRI or CAT scan. What the scan revealed this week is chilling: What you see is the culture of death staring back at us ominously.

Albert Mohler: A Dizzying and Deadly Revolution

The horrors of abortion appear daily as states across the country pledge their support for late-term abortion laws. And, with the recent change in New York’s law legalizing abortion right up to the point of birth, we see virtually immediate real-world impact.

The ink was barely dry on New York’s “Reproductive Health Act” when the New York Times reported that, after Governor Cuomo’s signing of the bill, “anti-abortion campaigners predicted it would eliminate criminal penalties for violence that ends women’s pregnancies. The debate resurfaced over the weekend after the Queens district attorney, Richard A. Brown, cited the new law … as the reason for dropping an abortion charge against a man who the police say fatally stabbed his former girlfriend when she was 14 weeks pregnant.”

The speed of the moral revolution is dizzying: Just days after the passage of this abortion law, the criminal justice system dropped its case to protect the life of the unborn.

Albert Mohler: The Abortion Rights Lobby Revealed

The horrible reality of late-term abortion points to the horrible reality of abortion, period. The abortion-related legislation in the news in recent weeks reveals a progression in pro-abortion thinking: Late-term abortion is becoming a basic principle of the pro-abortion movement.

From the State of New York, to Rhode Island, Virginia and now Illinois, we are seeing legislation put forward that reveals the truth about abortion—the mask taken off, as it were.

We’re seeing the determination that abortion be available to any woman at any time for any reason or for no reason—even to the point that the advocates of abortion, who had basically tried to indicate that they understood third-trimester abortions to be different, now they’re saying they’re not different at all.

And we also have to acknowledge this follows their own deadly logic.

Either life is sacred and worth protecting … or it’s not.

Michael Medved: Democratic Push for Late-Term Abortion is Repulsive and Suicidal

Democrats across the country seem insanely determined to pursue a repulsive political strategy to expand access to late-term abortions, despite overwhelming opposition to the gruesome practice.

In Virginia, for instance, the law already allows women to get-late term abortions if giving birth would “result in the death of the woman or substantially and irreparably impair the mental or physical health of the woman.”

The proposed new law would remove the words “substantially and irreparably” and allow abortion with the certification of a single doctor, not three as currently required- meaning one doctor, citing concerns for his patient’s mental health, could abort the baby at the very moment of birth.

This is extreme, radical and it’s outrageous—and it’s guaranteed to unite Republicans in opposition and damage Democratic prospects for 2020 and beyond.
