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: 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 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.

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.

What we find is that an incredible number of Republican voters in Alabama simply did not vote. They could not vote for a pro-abortion candidate like Doug Jones but they also would not vote for a Republican like Roy Moore.

The voters of Alabama demonstrated that there are limits to conservative tolerance when it comes to questions of character.

Albert Mohler: The Real Controversy In The Alabama Senate Race

Headlines

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.

Albert Mohler: Haunted By The Laughter

Headlines

This past Saturday, Norma McCorvey passed away at the age of 69 in Texas. She was better known by her pseudonym, Jane Roe. McCorvey was the lead plaintiff in the infamous Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion in the United States.

The reality is that pro-abortion forces were shopping for a plaintiff and if it wasn’t Norma McCorvey, it would have been someone else. She was simply a cog in the abortion machine.

In the 1990s, McCorvey became a Christian and reversed her position on abortion. In very telling words, she would later say that her conscience was turned largely by her imagination. She was thinking of the laughter of all of those babies, including the infants who were never born.

Since the ruling in 1973, some 50 million unborn babies have been killed. Looking back over time, we can see that 1973 and the Roe v. Wade decision were simply the beginning of the battle for the sanctity and dignity of human life that continues even today.
