This Week, America Learns Where Its Leaders Stand on Life and Abortion

Sandy Fitzgerald : Feb 4, 2019  The Stream

The ethics and morality of abortion are being hotly debated across America. This week, leaders in all three branches of government will record where they stand.

This week, all three branches of US government will respond to public outrage. On Monday, the US Senate will vote on a bill banning infanticide of babies born following a failed abortion. The New York law does not protect lives in such cases.

On Tuesday, President Trump says he plans to discuss life issues in his State of the Union address. Two days later, the US Supreme Court is expected to announce whether it will weigh in on an abortion-related Louisiana law.

The March for Life’s vice president of government affairs reacted to these events. "This coming week, we will see if our elected officials and appointed judges respond to the uproar," Tom McClusky told The Stream.

"Will they reject the barbarism abortion brings? We are hopeful they will join the consensus for life."

Late-Term Abortion Laws Outrage Even Christian Left

Since taking office, Democratic lawmakers elected nationwide have sought to enact their brutal abortion platform. The Washington Post reports that abortion rights supporters "carefully laid plans… in about half of the states." In New York, Virginia, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, they introduced bills defending late-term abortions.

Proposed pro-choice state laws follow President Trump appointing two new Supreme Court justices. States are acting to defend current policies, in case the high court overturns Roe v. Wade. (Under Roe and related decisions, abortion is legal up to birth except as limited by state laws.)

Enacted in New York on January 22, the Reproductive Health Act implicitly defends third-trimester abortion. Polling indicates only 30 percent of Americans support unrestricted abortion. However, laws in New York and seven other states reflect this policy. These include Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont.

"Abortion up until birth is not only brutishly callous, it is severely out of touch with mainstream America," said Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life.

"These radical pro-abortion lawmakers need to do their homework. Is it really okay to kill a seven-pound baby who is not yet born?"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
