Choose Greatness, Choose Life

In Faith, Front Page, Unborn by Allen West

Back when Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973, the mandate was that abortion was to be safe, legal, and rare. Well, abortion was made legal, but to this day we can hardly claim it is safe, and certainly not rare.

We recently shared with you the number of procedures murdering unborn children globally last year, near 42M. And, we have stressed the fact that in the Black community there have been nearly 18M babies murdered in the womb since Roe v. Wade. In NYC more black babies were killed than born alive. We witnessed how vile and vicious the progressive socialist left was towards high school students from Covington, Kentucky who were in DC for the National March for Life rally.

I find it utterly disturbing that leftists show more compassion towards dogs, cats, and baby seals that they do human babies. Yes, the recent legalization of infanticide by Gov. Cuomo of New York, and the supportive declaration by Virginia’s Gov. Northam has taken this to another level. Indeed, it was surprisingly heroic to have a sitting American president take a stance on this heinous issue during a State of the Union address. President Trump’s challenge to end late-term abortion was met by stoic faces of Democrats . . . and now this.

As reported by Townhall:

“House Democrats have twice refused now to take up the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for consideration. 

The measure is “designed to ensure any infant born alive after an abortion receives the same protection of law as any newborn: mandating care and instituting penalties for doctors who allow such infants to die or who intentionally kill a newborn,” according to a statement from the office of its sponsor Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO).

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attempted to get the legislation considered in the House Wednesday.

“If the Democrats object, we’ll ask again, and again and again because it is just right,” he said prior to his attempt. “It’s not a partisan issue–it’s about saving lives. I think everyone can agree with that. We should solve this problem this week.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) asked for the bill to be considered again Thursday. He and McCarthy wondered on Twitter why the Democrats kept rejecting it. Senate Democrats blocked a measure Monday that would have legally protected infants born alive after an abortion procedure. The move to protect infants born alive after abortion comes after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) made some surprising remarks about leaving infants to die after birth.

“It’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that’s nonviable,” Northam told WTOP regarding third trimester abortions. “So in this particular example, if a mother’s in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Let me reiterate this again: Dr. Kermit Gosnell was sentenced to life in prison for doing to three babies — infants — exactly what Gov. Cuomo legalized, and the Democrats in the House and Senate are blocking. There is no justification for this, other than the progressive socialist left in America is the party of infanticide. This nation, our America, must “Choose Greatness,” it cannot choose infanticide.

This is no longer an issue of women’s reproductive health rights. I do not think anyone would deny a woman healthcare for ovarian, uterine, cervical, or breast cancer, or fibroid tumor treatment. I find the argument that abortion is a human right to be very disingenuous and to say anyone believing that allowing a baby — with a heartbeat after 18 days — to live somehow violates a woman’s right is absurd.

Let’s all agree that in this day and time, murdering an unborn child is not a viable birth control option. It is my personal belief that there are three cases where any woman should make the choice of life herself: if pregnancy has resulted from rape, incest, and if there is a certifiable threat to the life of the mother.

This is no longer the case with the left in America. They are now fully embracing that which resulted in Dr. Kermit Gosnell being sentenced to life in prison: the murder of an infant. Consider that if someone kills a pregnant woman, they are charged with a double homicide. Then again, this is something that the progressive socialist left, led by Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby, are trying to overturn these laws in respective states. Why?

Why does it appear that the left in America has such a hatred of unborn children? Sorry folks, but there is only one thing that I can say: this is pure, unadulterated evil. We have a clear choice in America going forward. We can “Choose Greatness,” or choose this clear and present evil.

I do not know what unborn children have done to the Democrat Party to deserve such disregard, disrespect, and dismissal. No, I am not anti-woman, which, of course, is how the left will twist my thoughts. Remember, if you do not agree with their ideological agenda, regardless of the basic morality of it, you are anti-something.

I must ask our dear delusional progressive socialist friends, why would you align yourselves with a white supremacist, racist, a woman who spoke at Ku Klux Klan rallies, Margaret Sanger? This is all part of her derangement, and she created Planned Parenthood to carry out her vision of death for our unborn . . . Of course, intended for children who resemble me.

I must admit, the Democrats are making this decision really easy . . . well, for those of us who still have a moral compass.
