So, it appears that the 100% anti-life Senator, who became the 100% anti-life candidate, is now going to become the 100% anti-life President. Let me explain.
While serving in the Illinois Senate, and then in the United States Senate, our President-elect amassed a voting record and public record that was assessed at 100% by the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL), the most ardent and infamous pro-abortion lobby in the United States. His record was given similar “approval” by the Temple of Moloch, er, I mean Planned Parenthood. This much is clear, and it’s all in the public record — the Senator had a 100% anti-life, pro-abortion record.
During the campaign, the 100% anti-life Senator did little to conceal his positions. On his website, it stated plainly that “he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President.” In one infamous statement, he said that determining at what point an unborn baby receives human rights was “above my pay grade”. He also said that if his daughters were to become sexually active, he didn’t want them to be “punished with a child”. He said that signing the iniquitous Freedom of Choice Act would be “the first thing I do”. You get the idea. The 100% anti-life Senator had seamlessly become the 100% anti-life candidate.
Now, less than one week after the election, it has already become clear that the 100% anti-life candidate will in fact govern as a 100% anti-life President.
A report over the weekend in the Washington Post stated that the President-elect “himself has signaled, for example, that he intends to reverse Bush’s controversial limit on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research… The new president is also expected to lift a so-called global gag rule barring international family planning groups that receive U.S. aid from counseling women about the availability of abortion.”
Let’s be clear about what this means. President Bush issued an executive order in 2001 limiting federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. This order has been the only thing standing against the American taxpayer paying for the dismemberment of tiny members of the human family. It is also prevented taxpayers paying for the horrific practice of human cloning. With the sweep of the pen, the 100% anti-life President-elect will pay people to move us into the Brave New World where human beings are objects to be manufactured and destroyed for profit and for the use of their body parts. And we’re going to pay for it.
The “so-called global gag order” (now there’s a great illustration of a neutral, unbiased media report) is actually a reference to a policy of the United States government known as the Mexico City Policy. That policy, which originated with President Reagan, bans American taxpayer funding for organizations that promote abortion in foreign countries. The principal non-governmental organization that does so is, of course, the Temple of Moloch, er, I mean Planned Parenthood. Remember, the Temple of Moloch was founded by the notorious racist and eugenicist, Margaret Sanger, who had no problem talking about “more of the fit, less of the unfit”, and referring to people as being members of “inferior classes”. The organization she founded lives on in her spirit, pushing for the extermination of the poor and disadvantaged around the globe. This Mexico City Policy is the only thing that stands against the American taxpayer paying that evil organization to advocate for killing the unborn babies in developing countries. Yet this is precisely what the 100% anti-life president-elect is going to make us pay for.
This would be a great opportunity for those Catholics, and those pro-lifers, who supported the 100% anti-life candidate, to step forward and denounce these proposals. You remember them, the people who cared so much about the cause of human life that they tried to convince us that he would be the best choice for pro-life interests.
Here’s the reality — if you pay for something, and if you pay for someone to encourage something, you’re in favor of it. That’s Logic 101. And if you intentionally pay for or knowingly advocate for something that’s intrinsically evil, that’s a very gravely immoral act. If you stand by silently while something like that is going on, you’ve committed a serious sin of omission. Not a good way to start off a Presidency.
