National Democratic Party moves to alter abortion laws
The national Democratic Party — and that does not include the Democrats who read this column — has gone stark-raving mad.
In just this week alone, the Democrats have voted to remove the word God from the oath taken for committee assignments. And then in a move that boggles the mind, there is a Democratic movement to allow abortions up until the time of birth.
In our national discourse, we can disagree on the need for a wall on our southern border and we can disagree on the need to eliminate the estate tax. Those are two Republican supported measures under consideration.
But on the issue of radically altering abortion laws, how in the world can there be disagreement?
What is the argument on the basic issue of life itself? Can you honestly imagine a society that allows murder in the name of abortion?
If the Democrats prevail on the host of radical proposals that rage within their party, then the future of this nation is in question.
Agree or disagree, an argument can be made on early abortions when the health of the mother is in jeopardy.
But this proposal from the Democratic Party goes far, far beyond that single issue.
Yet the highly partisan national media wants to ignore this dangerous direction from the Democrats. And since most Americans rely almost solely on that very same national media, the outrage that should be expected is silent.
This is not an issue of religious belief. This is an issue of basic values we share as a nation.
If we place no value on life at birth, it’s an easy path to reducing value on life at the end of our journey on this earth.
I don’t hold to the view that a nation has a soul. But I do believe there are shared values and shared beliefs that form the foundation of a nation.
And premiere among those shared beliefs is the value of life. If we abandon that, we change as a nation.
We have bastardized the concept of women’s rights and the right to choose.
And we are on the verge of crossing a line that will change the face of this nation for generations to come.
