Albert Mohler: A Political Earthquake In Alabama

Billy Graham

A political earthquake recently occurred in the state of Alabama.

For the first time since 1992, the voters of Alabama elected a Democrat to the United States Senate. That Democrat, Doug Jones, bested Republican Roy Moore who was embroiled in accusations of sexual misconduct with women who were minors at the time.

Ever since the 2016 presidential election, many people in America have been asking how voters will resolve the conflict between political convictions and the character of a candidate. 2016 clearly tested Republicans and, in particular, conservative Christians on this question, but it was a deeper test in Alabama.

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.
