Albert Mohler: Tim Murphy and America’s Soul on the Issue of Human Life

Billy Graham

The United States recently witnessed a tragic example of hypocrisy in high office on the question of the sanctity of human life.  

Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Tim Murphy has a voting pattern of defending the sanctity of human life and only lately was amongst those who voted to ban abortion after 20 weeks.

However, divorce proceedings revealed that when Congressman Murphy discovered that his mistress may be expecting a child, he repeatedly suggested that she abort the unborn baby.

The political pressure became increasingly heavy after this revelation.

Initially, Representative Murphy announced he would retire at the end of his term. Subsequently, he told Speaker of the House Paul Ryan that he’d resign effective October 21. 

This kind of hypocrisy at this level on the question of the sanctity of human life is not only immoral, it’s downright deadly. Day by day, vote by vote, headline by headline, America’s soul on the question of the dignity and sanctity of human life is becoming more apparent.

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.
