Animals have no rights—they cannot be held morally responsible for their behavior—but they certainly deserve our respect. Indeed, those who abuse them should be punished: animal cruelty should never be tolerated. It should be axiomatic that human beings, at all stages of development, are also entitled to great respect, including those not sentient enough to make moral choices.
Why, then, are so many politicians and celebrities more concerned about the plight of seals than kids? Selfishness plays a big role. Animals, especially pets, make us happy, but some human beings make us unhappy. Hence, the desire to protect the wellbeing of pets but balking on humans. After all, if the prospect of welcoming a new baby into our lives is likely to bring about unhappiness, shouldn’t we have the right to rid ourselves of the source of our unhappiness?
The de-Christianization of our society has even worse consequences. Two pro-life bills, the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” and the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” were recently shot down in the U.S. Senate, mostly by Democrats.
The “Born Alive” act was written to strengthen a 2002 law by providing specific sanctions for abortionists who intentionally allowed innocent babies to die if they survived a botched abortion. The “Pain-Capable” act would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks gestation. Both bills received majority support but failed to achieve the 60 votes necessary to end debate and move to a final vote.
What would those senators who voted against the former bill say to individuals—and there are many of them—who survived an abortion and became model citizens? That they have no right to be here? Regarding the latter bill, how would they explain the reaction of a child in the womb who recoils upon being pricked by a needle—the pictures don’t lie. That he was feigning pain?
Some in the Congress are so rabid in their defense of abortion that they have literally cracked up. One of my senators is Chuck Schumer. He is a bright man and a hard worker. While I usually don’t agree with his politics, he has always commanded my respect. Not anymore. When he threatened two Supreme Court Justices, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, because he thought they may vote against abortion rights, that was it for me. He acted like a thug.
Then we have “The Squad,” the four freshman members of Congress who are in a constant state of rebellion against America. Few things matter more to them than abortion. In fact, they would put their lives on the line to protect abortion rights before they would ever sacrifice their lives to protect our nation from a foreign enemy. That’s just how far gone they are.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley sounded the alarms over the Supreme Court’s decision to hear some important abortion cases by exclaiming, “reproductive rights is racial justice.” This is the kind of statement we would expect from the Klan. Pressley is black.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib lashed out at pro-life Americans, saying, “Y’all, y’all, you know what? You’re so freakin obsessed with what I do with my body, maybe you shouldn’t even want to have sex with me.” In response, I told the media, “Believe me, lady, no one does. I know of no defender of life who wants to sleep with you. And if you don’t know the difference between a woman who wants to remove a wart from her toe and a pregnant woman who wants to remove a human being from her body, you need to enroll in Bio 101.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar previously unveiled her support for abortion by saying that pro-life legislation was “only the latest in a long history of efforts to criminalize women for simply existing.” That would mean that pro-life Americans want their mothers imprisoned. Even those in the asylum don’t speak such gibberish.
Last year, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez objected to a pro-life bill in Alabama that the governor pledged to sign. She labeled it an example of “patriarchy.” The governor is a woman. In the fall, she said that “non-binary people” need access to abortion. News flash: They don’t exist.
Think you’ve heard enough? Consider that March 10 was “National Abortion Providers Appreciation Day,” a time when abortion-happy activists celebrate abortionists doing what they do best—killing kids. NARAL called abortionists “real live superheroes.” Ms. Magazine called the day an occasion that recognizes “acts of kindness.” The ACLU commended abortionists for their “life-saving work.”
In Spokane, the city council passed an ordinance that empowers the police to cite pro-life activists who pray, or sing, too loudly outside the local Planned Parenthood abortion mill. In the Washington city of Bellingham, pro-life students were attacked for praying. A man masturbated in his car in front of the students, a woman flashed them, and a man threw a vial at them. To top things off, a woman screamed at them, “We don’t need your prayers. Hail Satan!”
Satan has long left his mark on abortion politics, but these recent events suggest he is upping his game.
